Footage unearthed of John Lennon / Elton John @ Madison Square Garden for Thanksgiving 1974

HISTORICAL DOCUMENT : First EVER footage of the John Lennon / Elton John @ Madison Square Garden on Thanksgiving 1974:

A few words from the guy who recorded this: "This gets much better once the lights come up. I was 18 and a rank amateur when I filmed this. It was taken with a Super 8 movie camera whilst dancing on my chair, and trying not to fall off. When I stood still for a moment, the Garden was actually bouncing! I transferred it to VHS in the early '80s and dubbed in the music, which was the opening song. When Lennon came on stage it was pure magic. Best Concert Ever."
