The gigs at MSG are filmed and recorded for the group's feature movie, The Song Remains the Same, and accompanying soundtrack album, as well as the 2003 dvd. A remastered edition of the film & soundtrack are released in November 2007.
The band hires a film crew - up to four 35mm cameras (depending on which night) - Arriflex 35BL with 400' film cartridges. A 16mm Éclair ACL camera was occasionally used for insert shots / offstage and crowd shots. The camera crew would take notes & photos through each of these last gigs (from July 24-29), to learn the song order and the stage lighting etc. The film would be taken to Aquarius Transfer in NYC - the dailies watched with the Director of Photography as well as Peter Grant, Robert and JP.
