I stood at the Metro station last night when a geezer around 70 years old walked up to me and asked me about my Stones badge pinned to my parka. We started talking and he mentions he got about 4 minutes of Super 8 footage of the show at Råsunda 1970. I asked him to go transfer it to VHS or DVD and then maybe he could be able to sell it or at least get it out for other fans to see it. Amazing.

or mail it to automaticchanger and he'll do the rest

My reputation precedes me, haha - doubt you got any contact info from the guy, but if so I'd definitely buy it off him or at least pay to get it digitized.

Yeah but what the MasterBlaster guy did is exactly what one shouldn't do (you should process your films asap).
The 3 images posted here are great but are technically poor, with a gray-ish dull look and total lack of contrast. The speciality lab that processed these films did a good job, but you can't only do a "damage control" job on a 45+yo latent image.

I'd love being proven wrong but I have little hope for Tri-X's exposed at 3200. On these the latent image has probably already gone to the great photo-album in the sky... winking smiley

^^^ IMO, those film rolls hold a lot of potential for wonderful images - what a treasure trove! Yes, the ones shown are lacking in contrast, but film photographers have adjusted contrast in the darkroom via dodging & burning and the use of contrast filters and contrast paper for ages. Now, it's even easier to do via digital imaging programs. I'm not referring to the heavy-handed retouching, reality-distorting "filters" and other photo fakery used today. It's a matter of judiciously bringing out the details already there on film. I do agree that 50 year old Tri X pushed to 3200 is unlikely to yield great quality images, but some of the rolls pictured were labeled as shot @ 800, so they hold promise, imo.

I'm an amateur w/ scant skills, using an old program from 2006, and I spent about 5 minutes adjusting the contrast on Ronnie (see side-by-side comparison linked below). Mediocre rush job, done to demonstrate the potential for adjustment. I think a skilled pro could work wonders and optimize these images to the max.

Side-by-side comparison here:
