Is it this one? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Epson-Perfection-scanner-ReadyScan-technology/dp/B009EOPQD4

Superb results for a piece of kit less than £100 if so.



Yes, that's the one, think I paid £85 for it just before Christmas.  I'm scanning at 2400dpi but it will go to 12800dpi if required.

Thanks, matey. Ordered one.

Mark - weren't a lot of those original pics from when you worked at Tudor in Cricklewood? That must have helped with getting the prints done to how you wanted them and at a 'reasonable' cost  ;)

As I said Saturday, loving the Chadwell Heath pics  8) Just as pokey as I remembered it.
Stadium my arse  ::)

Shame you haven't got any Woolwich Odeon pics. Now that was a special gig....
Can't get enough of that long hair music...

Only the 1st few films were done at Tudor, after that I was printing them all myself wherever I was working at the time, total control and at very 'reasonable' cost of course... :)

Nice, I was at the Rush & MSG gigs, probably at the Lizzy one as well....
Was that the Priest gig where Maiden opened for them ?

Maiden supported Priest in March 1980

Yes, Wembley Arena was always all seated back then.

No, 1980, as Pete said & as per the photos from earlier (probably on page 2 or 3 by now).

Did you see Van Halen back then?

Yes. Unfortunately the Sabbath support slot in 78 was a few months before I started taking pics & cameras were never allowed in at the Rainbow where I saw the 3 headline shows they did in 79/80. One of the  few key bands of the era that I didn't photograph I'm afraid.

Ah, a shame.  I imagine that back in the day, VH would have been eminently photographable (not sure thats a word, but you catch my drift).

Love the Rush ones here....

Also, kudos for getting such good seats....back in the pre-internet days, one had to rely on Sounds for details of tours...and by the time it came out on a Wednesday, most of the good ones had gone....thank God for the internet...

Anyway - good work!

Pity. Those must have been amazing shows though.
