Jimmy Page & The Black Crowes - Wantagh 2000.07.10 - DVD Pro Shot & iTouch video


Jimmy Page & The Black Crowes
July 10, 2000
Jones Beach Amphitheater
Wantagh, NY
Pro Shot Video
Bad Wizard Label

I have always been a big fan of when Jimmy played with the Crowes having had in the collection previous amateur videos which were pretty good to say the least and the various audio bootlegs that were available to us all right through to the official release from the Greek Theatre in 1999. This release is a welcome addition to any collector, Jimmy whilst playing with the Crowes was always on fire, some people regard the vocalist as being "Tame / weak / not Robert Plant etc" should ignore this fact, cause this is all about Jimmy playing old zep standards at some of his highest standards. The highlights for me were Lemon Song, Celebration Day, In My Time of Dying. Lets not forget that the Crowes are a pretty tight and professional band and can certainly handle their instruments. The DVD itself is indeed a pro shot, where it come from who knows and who cares, the picture quality is fantastic with multi camera angles, there is a minor tape flaw in places but this does not detract from the viewing at all. The sound is simply fantastic also. This is a fantastic release and a master class in guitar playing, the intermingling of Jimmy with the Crowes guitarists is fantastic, such a pity they stopped playing. A big thumbs up on this one to the people who released it, lets hope for more. (Big Lee From Tipton Jan 07)

I converted this for use on my iTouch and thought I would share that as well. Enjoy

  3. Thank you for this! I was wondering though, any idea why the two songs are removed? Especially In The Light..I'm not sure if I've ever even heard it live, but to see Jimmy play it. That's a hard one to get past!! Not that I'm complaining. This is absolutely amazing!
    Truly, as always, appreciate it.

  4. I am not sure why those songs were removed. In the Light was one of my favorites when I was in high school and I would have loved to see that live as well.

  5. It took me most of two days to finish this one, but when I finally got to look at it I noticed that the included text file states that the two removed tracks were officially released. I'm not sure where to begin looking for them, but hopefully their out there somewhere!
    Jimmy's really shredding some metal at a few points. And Hots On For Nowhere live is definitely a first(and a favorite) for me. Great stuff!
    Thanks again RMac!

  7. "Misty Mountain Hop" and "In The Light" were bonus tracks on the Japanese edition of the Live at the Greek CD set. I had no idea that they were recorded at this show - a show I attended. Thank you!

  8. I didn't realize they were recorded at this show, cool! I'll bet it was awesome live. I've seen the Crowes a number of times live as well as seeing Jimmy with the Firm a couple of times (the Page/Plant years I was stuck in a bad marriage... hate that bitch LOL).

  11. I use a program called DVD Decrypter to rip the DVD to my hard drive and HandBrake to encode the files. Both are free and work awesome. Google is your friend.
