If it was, then you have the World's oldest digital camera, Bill.
Bill Phillips: I am referring to the release of Physical Graffiti by Led Zeppelin which was released 40 years ago. A remastered digital edition is being released to mark the anniversary. I still have my original vinyl copy. Kashmir is probably my favourite track on the item
I like the selective color making the red pop!
Bill Phillips: Thank you ma'am
It could have been Bill...Selective colouring is perfect here!
Bill Phillips: Thanks Richard. Their first album was back in 1969!

That little one must be you then, Bill!
Bill Phillips: It is not the picture that is 40 years old grin

Modern people in a landscape from the 19th century - you could have cloned out the climbers in my opinion.
Bill Phillips: I could have Philine but I rather liked the contrast

My first digital camera was I think 4MP, I thought it was wonderful at the time but as the fresh faced lads below prove, time marches on..
Bill Phillips: It is funny to think I bought Physical Graffiti 40 years ago!
The "40 years" is really confusing me, Bill, so please explain. I can't imagine any one of these in the image above being you 40 years ago???? So, HELP!

It was indeed. I was in Newcastle when I bought the album and remember the fun hours to be had playing with the sleeve whilst listening!
Bill Phillips: It was a great sleeve and still is a pretty good album!
I like the picture but really like the 40 year old flashback.
Bill Phillips: They were an exceptional band.

I like the colour popping. Not that familiar with the Led Zeppelin tracks.
Bill Phillips: I like some of their stuff. Never saw them live although my daughter Kathryn saw Page and Plant and one of the festivals. My favourite track is "When the Levee breaks"

Excellent, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much Pauline.
I had the same thought Bill, I had a first pressing of Led Zep's first album..It made me a lot of money...smile
Bill Phillips: I read that they only had a budget of about £1800 to make that first album.
You should get Mr Plant to sign your album, he only lives up the road from you in Shropshire.
Bill Phillips: He does indeed. I used to work with someone who knew John Bonham's family and knew him when he was a lad! What a drummer!!
nice treatment here Bill...
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ronky smile
Nice picture, good colour popping, but as for Led Zeppelin, I think at the time I went through a period of not following the pop/rock scene at all.
Bill Phillips: When I first heard them I didn't like them at all but later I actually listened properly and realised how good they were
A lovely image Bill and the red colouring fits in well
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much Janet

Ah, having read the comments I now understand the 40 years ago bit.

I like the selective colouring
Bill Phillips: I think I confused people a bit grin
Another goody, Bill. Enjoyed Dr. Hook, by the way, I see that the principals are still soldiering on!
Bill Phillips: We went to see Dennis Locorriere at Huntingdon Hall in Worcester a few years back . Just him and a guitar. He was very entertaining both with amusing chat and great renditions of the well known songs plus a few new ones
