Released in 1976, this concert film was taped over several days in 1973. Aside from the concert footage itself taped at Madison Square Garden in three nights, it features several dream sequences of the band manager (Peter Grant) as a gangster and the band members in their individual fantasy vignettes, It runs just over 2 1/4 hours.
This was the tour in which nearly a quarter-million dollars was stolen from their hotel’s safe deposit box and there’s some footage of that as well. It’s even a good portrait of NYC in the early 1970s. Enjoy.

I’m watching this and it sure does start out goofy. Can’t wait to get into the real concert footage.
