Well, I tried. I had high hopes, but it was not to be... this time.
I have seen a list of the Capitol Theatre's surviving tapes (as I mentioned earlier in another thread) owned by John Scher of Metropolitan Entertainment (who incidentally owned the Theatre for its entire glorious lifespan). There are many wonderful concert videos on this list, but the bad news is, the shows I was looking for (including the 1981 Ozzy show) are not listed in this collection... which can only mean that, assuming the theatre did film this particular Ozzy concert (and I don't know why they wouldn't), it only stands to reason that someone must have taken the tape after the show, as it stands that it’s no longer in the vault.
Anyways, so again the question remains... where is the tape and who has it? The Osbournes? Maybe Ozzy's voice was sub-par that night (what else is new?) and Sharon (armed with some ulterior motive) didn't want the tape in public circulation, so she snagged it???

On the other hand, Sharon got into a nasty fight with John Scher (over money - what else is new?), and Sharon showed her true colors and kneed him in the bollocks, so who knows what happened to it after that. :lol:

I don't look at this as a dead end in my detective work... merely a brick wall to be scaled and gotten over at some point.

Yes. I'll second that "thanks for the effort" and go as far as to thank each and every one of you who keeps hope alive.

If the day comes that more "new" footage surfaces , pro shot or just bootleg , you know it's gunna be a glorious day here at rr.tk!

I'll never give up hope until we know the truth about ,

1 the after hours "alternate" takes

2 E.T and 2 on the town footage

3 did the guy who filmed that "new" soundcheck footage , did he shoot more?!

4 the 2 boots from NYC and Chicago ... did those two bootleggers tape more?!


*sigh*

Yeah whitewolf, I remember you trying to search for this before the site went down and thank you for going this far with it. Total devotion man. If we all can get this motivated and go out and search one day we will hit the motherload. 8)

Great effort.

While I'm still ingesting cableguy's incredible Best Clips DVD, I thought I'd ask what the definitive Randy video collection would include?

You all are talking about what is missing. How about what we have today? And how can new members get our hands on them?

btw I'm blown away by the Chicago 1/24/82 footage, it was shot 3 days before I was supposed to see them in St. Louis but it had to be postponed due to the bat incident. The angle was center, whereas we sat a little to the left BUT its so close to what I remember was our vantage point that its almost like deja vu man..Flo

You're all welcome. :D
I pursued this because I know the Capitol Theatre supposedly filmed every show there and that Ozzy and Randy indeed played there in 1981. And until I hear anything to the contrary from John Scher himself, I'm believing that this, and the other Capitol Theatre concert film I'm looking for, exist somewhere. In my searching, I have also discovered that Mr. Scher is planning on offically releasing the entire Capitol vault which houses many classic concerts, so I'm not giving up on these just yet. :wink:

There's probably people sitting on RR footage somewhere out there who don't have the internet and so have no idea how much we all want it.

I want to talk to someone that went to that concert. Did they see the concert being projected on the side screens?

Yes, but who would know better than the guy who owned the theatre and still today owns the vault if it was filmed or not?
Still, on the other hand, I know that the other concert I'm looking for from here was filmed and has in fact been verified by someone in attendence on June 10th, 1978... yet it's not on the list I saw. So, where's that tape then? :?
This is precisely why I'm continuing to pursue this particular path to its end.
