Salaam uploaded in his story many old blackberry phones of his, which we know one of them was the phone he recorded Amy at Union Chapel.
I sent him a dm if he has more videos innit, but I believe that if anyone has a big Amy ig account or has contact with Salaam, it would be easier to receive a reply.
haha I just thought the same today when I was watching this story

Excellent post, as always! As a fan since 2006, I can assure you this was her best perfomance ever (including others, of course). 2006 should have never ended for Amy.... Her voice in "Love you More..." was superb,exquisite and pure (even if the quality video was crap). Her perfomance reminds me of Judy Garland, Billie Holiday and many more. I wonder if might find something on MySpace, but according to what I read in earlier posts, this seems to be impossible. Shame on MySpace team!
I saw Mika's video and it was quite good even though mobile phones were so basic back in 2006 and 2007! (and the videos lasted mostly some seconds). What drew my attention: Oasis gig took place on the 26th of November (two days after Amy's!!) , and Amy was quite famous back then (of course not as popular as in 2007 but she had already released her debut album in UK). So, my guess is that it is very strange they didn't record Amy's perfomance (or any other artist), specially bearing in mind that this perfomance was launched by BBC. If they certainly didn't record the set, they lost a unique opportunity in capturing one of the best moments in music history. If it exists, it is likely it will cost A LOT OF MONEY, especially with the passing of years. Don't forget that Mitch is inevitably behind Amy's stuff, and sharing new material has never been part of his kindness... I AM HOPEFUL, HOWEVER, THAT THIS PERFOMANCE WAS FULLY RECORDED (AT LEAST IN AUDIO), SINCE WE GOT THE CHANCE TO HEAR "WE ARE STILL FRIENDS" IN HQ BACK IN 2015. Besides, she sang a lot of songs (I remember seeing a piece of paper with the songs, the ones she used to perfom during her B2B 2007 tour).
Thank you once again for your extensive dedication and research! We should definitely keep an eye on this set, as it shows Amy's simplicity yet brillance that not so many people know.
PD: Matthew Holley is the name of the guy who uploaded Jo Wiley's speech, I tried to look his name up on Twitter, but couldn't find anything. Anyway, I think it is highly unlikely that he still has videos from that night, after 16 years! Perhaps we can get in touch with Salaam?
"2006 should have never ended for Amy" hit me so hard for so many reasons. Even if you didn't mean it, that's the most impactful thing I've read on this site so far. Wow...
