Is there a Led Zeppilin fan who may know about a bootleg recording of the 1972 Osaka Concert.

Since we don't know what information you want, it's difficult for anyone to say that they can help you.  Are you looking for a tape, a setlist, or what?  Do you want to know about the October 4th show or the October 9th show?

Well I have a 'bootleg' LP of Led Zeppelin playing in Osaka on 9th October 1972. I had read something in Rolling Stone magazine, an article about Mr.Page and his interest about the history of the band. So I am just wondering if the one that I have is of any historical or nostalgic value to Led Zeppilin?

I can't speak for any member of Led Zeppelin but I would say that the chances are slim that anyone is interested in it.  To start with, any bootleg worth its salt was recorded off the soundboard; audience tapes are notoriously muddy and off-center.  By 1972, the soundman would be an employee of the band and they would have been able to request him to record a show at any time.  Secondly, I also have a copy of that show and there are probably more than a thousand others who do.

Those are the facts but I may still be wrong about whether the band would find any value in this recording.  It may be different from what I've heard.  The only way to be certain is to contact Jimmy Page's representative and I don't know who that is.  Given the amount of music the band has stolen from others, I don't see any cause for them to want to sue you for owning an illicit recording.
