Does anybody know where does this piece of film come from ?



It claims that it comes from Indianapolis 77, but these few seconds are NOT on the video which is being traded and comes labelled as coming from Indianapolis 77.

Possibilities :

1) Is the 5min film incomplete ? If so, does anybody have the FULL (or MORE complete) version ?
2) Is there more than 1 video recording from this concert ?
3) Were there at least 2 concerts in Indianapolis in January 1977 and BOTH were filmed ? If yes, does anybody know if more exists ?

Any other ideas ? :-)

It could be from Atlanta about a month later. An 8mm video reportedly exists from that concert.


It's late, but it's time to set me free

It's late, yes I know but there's no way it has to be

Too late, so let the fire take our bodies this night

So late, so let the waters take our guilt in the t

You could try contacting the person who posted it. Hopefully it's not the dork doing that horrendous job singing Under Pressure!

I think it IS him. I contacted him when I found the clip for the first time, no response yet :-)

All we can know at this point is the footage is no later than Boston 2-9-77.  John switched to a Music Man Stingray bass after this show, and he's seen in this clip with his Fender P bass.  It's definitely not from the Indianapolis 77 footage we currently have seen, but of course it's possible that this could be an alternate 8mm source of the show... about a 1 in 20 chance.
