  1. More than one person, and they don't know each other well. Do you really think I can say their names publicly? I don't even do that privately. What "outrageous" claims have I ever made here? The fact that Empress Valley has a whole lotta soundboards does not have to be considered an "insider" claim. Yes I know a bit more than I can say publicly, but it's superfluous as what I was told by various different folks I had already assumed before they even told me. You don't need inside info to see the game they are playing with what they release and hold back for later. If you want to talk about "outrageous" claims ask that kid on R-O and TTD involved with the NOLA audience tape who claimed that he has Indy 1977 audience, a proshot video of Seattle 1975 (total bs), and a crap load of Presence outtakes that do not circulate. He also told me he had (or saw) a black and white pro shot video of 5/21/1977. Have I made any claims like that? No I have not. Honestly NUTrocker, I always wondered if YOU are hoarding something big and you are trying to test people here to find out if anyone knows about it. I still think that.
  2. I agree with you about the amount of b.s. in the collecting world, but I only said bootleg companies have way more soundboards than you think. how is that not believable? they release one every year, you know they could release 5 a year and still have enough left over. I thought this was obvious.
  3. This is a VERY bad idea. The bootleggers will get even more than that when they release them and this kind of chatter could delay those releases even further. Yes I agree EVSD is taking too long to release this stuff. Why not try to convince the band to release these tapes themselves? They probably have the masters which would sound better anyway. EVSD doesn't have the masters they are 1st gen copies that they are using to make the CDs.
  4. I mean all of the ones they got their hands on back then. They're sitting on more than 25+ unreleased soundboards, and supposedly a video as well.
  5. Uhhhh no they DON'T. That's the problem right there. That does not "maximize" any demand. Release 4 or 5 per year to get the excitement going. Why they aren't doing this when they have so many is beyond me. To clarify I don't know if they have "every show" from 1975 or 1977 but they have way more than you think.
  6. They don't pay for them. They kind of fell into their lap a good while ago and they've been SITTING ON ALL OF THEM.
  7. Before "Conspiracy Theory" came out, not many people knew of the 3/14 San Diego show. Is it possible that they added other dates to the 1975 tour that we still don't know about?
  8. He does, he's just pretending not to.
  9. The piano was first brought on stage at Houston 1975 for NQ. I don't think Zep brought a piano on stage during any tour before that show.
  10. It could be anything at this stage.
  11. I found an AUDIENCE tape of this show but it supposedly sounds awful. I tried to get a copy from the taper and decided it wasn't worth the hassle. I think he's ashamed of the quality. The taper taped other shows as well. I'm sure there are other copies out there he made years ago.
  13. For those who like that sort of weather.
  14. I've heard rumors about this, but they fizzled out. Anyone else have any clues? Of course the main reason for an audience tape would be to finally hear the complete "No Quarter" from this date, which has been cut in the circulating version of the board for decades now. 4 nights in Texas 1975, and only one show was taped by a member of the audience? Come on!
