Hi

This is really a pretty vast topic - and a subject that deserves a website devoted to it. To accurately catalogue all footage available and grade it accurately would be a very time consuming processs however.

If you are looking for quick answers then ......

Pittsburgh 76
Opening Night Las Vegs 74
Summer Festival 75
December 75 - Vegas
Various 1972 footage
Omaha 74
Inglewood Forum 74

Those are some good ones - if you don't like those you won't like any of them.

I have also seen short clips in great quality of Uniondale 1975 and of the august or sept 1976 tour. Don't know if the latter one has original sound to it. I have it on a tape with footage from the grounds of graceland in 1977 (10/77 anyway). Maybe someone knows more about this.

I think it is generally regarded (and I certainly agree) that the 31 December 1976 Pittsburgh show is the best you can get in terms of amateur footage. It not only features a great performance as we all know, but someone has clearly gone to alot of trouble putting the thing together from somewhat limited resources. The Indianapolis show of 26 June 1977 is also a pretty good one, if you accept the fact that most of it isn't from Indianapolis anyway.

There is a fair bit of good quality 75 footage too though I'm not sure which one you are reffering to - do you recall what the suit was ?
