Hi James.

Yes they were all filmed. What you see on the 'official' release is what the crowd saw on the huge video screen, for the most part.  As far as what's been released it's still a matter of debate but it seems that the 24th and 25th, compared to the bootleg audio of each performance is the real thing. The prior dates are still around but not released for whatever reasons of which only Jimmy would know. Perhaps much of it was destroyed in safe keeping, which unfortunately in all too common, or he is simply not impressed with performance.

As far as Pittsburgh 73. This is actually a very famous show but for only a few seconds worth of video and a classic picture. The memorable image of Zeppelin by the wing of the Starship was taken there, on Plant's request, by Bob Gruen. (attached).  A few moments of video from the show, taken by a roadie at the side of the stage, can be seen in the official 1997 video promo for Whole Lotta Love. Here's that link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19npaPUCQrI

Hope this helped!

I`m not only a Zeppelin fanatic, but I have been collecting Zeppelin - including Jimmy Page and Robert Plant solo music & information - for over 27 years. I am truly a lover of Page/Plant music in & out of Zeppelin simply because of the honesty & integrity of it all. - I have been studying them for as long as I have been listening to Rock/Blues Music. Their interpretation of the blues is unlike any other. I look forward to any question and will answer the very best I can - as above all - I am just a fan like you! (Please understand my interest is in the music and people of REAL life; NOT in rumor or fantasy).


Lover of blues roots and rock music from early 1900's to today. Musician for 30 years, mostly study of guitar and recording engineering.
