  1. Past hour
  2. I go back and forth between 7/28 and Salt Lake as being the best sounding 73 Boards. Fort Worth is great too but seems a little thin compared to those two. I’m guessing the Salt Lake board is maybe a higher generation with all the tape hiss. Any other takers on 7/28, I know it’s all personal opinion.

    New Jimmy Page Biography Released

    Yep, just another pointless cash grab to coincide with the band's 50th.

    Sir George Martin vs Peter Grant

    I agree - no comparison between these two as they worked in different capacities.

    That's because he adopted a no solid foods diet on the first leg of that tour. Everything went through a blender he kept in his hotel room.

    Signed Led Zeppelin II sells for £4,100 in UK sale

    Jimmy very seldom signs for the public on account of professional autograph hunters. You're best bet is actually to contact Ross Halfin and see if there is something either of them would accept in trade in exchange for the signatures you are seeking. Arrangements can be made. I know a collector who had success with this approach during Jimmy's last visit to Los Angeles.

    Signed Led Zeppelin II sells for £4,100 in UK sale

    Great, they are sky high now. I have a few but Page is missing. I've written to him at two address asking if he wouldn't mind signing, also said I can donate to a charity etc but never got a response. Would be great to complete the set. Led Zeppelin autographs

    New Jimmy Page Biography Released

    Here’s a radio interview with the author. its funny...they are positively amused that little James Patrick from Surrey became “Britian’s Greatest rock star” ever, and made “more money than anyone” from rock n’ roll. if you listen to this, Jimmy is absolutely normal and a product of his generation...why even bother to write a book? very entertaining listen
  14. ive given up on these magazine specials. I have lots of them and kept on with them each time hoping for a new piece of interesting information but it seems the well of new info dried up long ago
  15. Saw this in "WH Smith" yesterday, was tempted but at £10.99 I gave it a pass. I may have paid a fiver but it's something that will end up in the bin once it's read.

    Random Thoughts v.3

    Mate, seriously, try all boots with speakers and then with headphones. Good cans (like my Sennheiser Momentum 2) can be a totally different listening experience. Sometimes better with speakers, sometimes cans. I'm not sure what makes what better, but there is definitely a distinction. LTTE for me is better through loud speakers. Stuff like TUF from 1980 - a thousand times better with my headphones on.

    Another loan nut job out get his name in "lights". A Sudanese born man 'Salih Khater' with a British passport drove a car (a small Ford Fiesta) into barriers at Westminster London knocking over two cyclists and a pedestrian in the process. No big deal really (except if you were one of those knocked down). Minor incidents like these are blown up way out of proportion, the guy was known to police but not to MI5 (the terrorist hunters).

    New Jimmy Page Biography Released

    Mine landed this morning. I opened a page at random and was regaled with how Jimmy had picked up a girl in Japan and Bonzo shat in her handbag while they were on the bullet train, then how Jimmy got the shits in Bombay. About what we expected, then. Ah, well, can't say we weren't warned...

    Rehearsals at Manticore Studios, early 1977

    Yes,it's been demolished.But before Manticore the theatre looked like this: ABC Walham Green 392 North End Road,Fulham,London. More info on Manticore here http://www.brain-salad-surgery.de/manticore.html
  21. I bought the Uncut Ultimate Music Guide yesterday...very disappointed. Same pics and even the reviews looked very much familiar. And again that stupid mix up with dates of the 69 and 70 RAH shows. Somehow these magazine editors just copy and paste their stuff over and over again...including mistakes. In the section of the singles they didn't even bother to mention the RSD 7" release of Friends/Rock'nRoll😡

    Empress Valley // Garden Tapes box - good quality?

    Wendy's version of 7/29 sounds better IMO. It's a pretty shitty sounding board to begin with though so the difference marginal , but I think Wendy's sounds a little warmer and more dynamic than EV. I no longer have EVs but ai this knot sounded better than previous releases like Missing Doll. There are certainly better sounding board tapes from 73. 7/29 is one of the worst.

    I love Benicio, just a great actor. One of my favorite performances by him was in Fear & Loathing in LV. The interplay between him & Johnny Depp was fantastic. But IMO his Dr. Gonzo stole the movie.

    Interesting that Page looks reasonably healthy, esp. in comparison to his ghastly and emaciated appearance in America just a few months later.

    Last chance motel, early 2019 makes sense (beyond Skin Tyson 'Cast dates' etc. , but as we know,the bigger question is 'do the relationships remain the same' ? Hope not,hope better than when this was taken. Nicht gut....

    The Evolution Of The Drum Set

    I'd be buying snares and kits every other day of the week if I could afford it and if I had somewhere to keep them.And as re:broken in heads,I leave them on as long as I can. I'm not sure what you mean by "head" as you also mentioned the snare head.Did you mean the hoop?
