I was there too. Unfortunately all I see are little boxes with red crosses in them when I try to view your pics, so I think there is a problem with the gallery.

I really would like to see them, the crazy tour pics and London 1978 as I was at most of those as well! Are there any other links to them?

The Bob Harris documentary has sadly never surfaced to date, but you might be interested in this

You saw the London 1978 show(s) and also Crazy tour dates?! Wow, you're a very lucky person! What Crazy tour shows did you see and do you remember anything about those shows?

I really hope we'll ever be able to hear more recordings from the Crazy tour! 4 recordings(with 2 being very poor)for 20 shows is not enough!:-)

It's on youtube : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7TOLUWj7Rw and also on one of his compilation DVDs (I don't recall the name now, it's a compilation of various video clips).

BTW you've been VERY lucky to see them live so many times, and great photos !

Kurgan100, you're such a lucky person to have seen them so many times(and so many Crazy tour shows of which is little known)! Would be great to be able to hear recordings of those shows but looks like these recordings to not exist:-(

Do you remember whether they played Sweet Lady during the second 1977 Earls Court show?

Hey I've taken Holmsey's first photo and tried to correct the colors, check the result and tell me what you think.

Holmsey - if you like the change, could you please upload all pics separately and in some lossless format (preferably PNG) please ? I'd like to clean em up slightly

Thanks for sharing these pics!  I actually somehow have a bigger scan of the Wembley pic, and I've got it on my website now along with your Knebworth pics.  I'd like to credit you properly, so please drop me an email if you'd like.

And also thanks to Holmsey for your pics too... they're great to have.

I tried to compile a list of scenes which come probably from Bob's documentary

- black and white interviews with the band members used probably for all documentaries, with Bob cut out in the last documentaries
- black and white footage of the band in USA - also in many documentaries
- black and white footage from the WATC video shoot - used in "Killer Queen" documentary
- Bob asking Roger after (I guess) the WATC video shoot what does he think - in ("In the lap of the gods ..." documentary)


Did I forget something ?
