New Linda Ronstadt, Macca & Queen...
17 Oct 2006

First off…The Mill, as in Rumor…Aurora Borealis is apparently working on some CROSBY, STILLS & NASH tapes, along with some CSNY material for a possible holiday release so we hope that’ll show before the end of the year…nothing founded or official as of yet but as you have perhaps read on these pages, there are some conversations being had, negotiations being conducted, to perhaps lure the ever-rumored LED ZEPPELIN 1977 proshot video from Landover, Maryland and perhaps Houston, Texas to bootleg DVD in 2007.  We can only hope this is finally got some truth behind the facts that they not only exist but that movement from the clutches of the hoarders has finally found its’ time. We'll all stay tuned for more discussions on that I'm sure...we should thank those members who are keeping close to their sources and ears to the between listening to those newly acquired underground recordings of course!
