  1. There is also one for the 25 Amazing Jimmy Page tattoos http://www.needsomefun.net/25-amazing-jimmy-page-tattoos/
  2. Thanks for the link. What an interesting read that was. I cannot imagine what Robert and his family went through during the later years of Zeppelin.
  3. Well said. I am surprised by the amount of negativity that some fans have against the band and/or members they love so much. I understand their frustration and everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I agree with you that a little more respect should be given. Some of these so called "fans" are borderline abusive towards certain band members. I just don't understand it.
  4. I couldn't agree more. I have all the other SDBS of the studio albums and was hoping the BBC SDBS would follow suit. I was hoping the booklet from the BBC SDBS would also be similar to the ones from the previous SDBS. I am a recent vinyl collector, so the only other Zep album I have is the Celebration Day one which is what the BBC set is similar to. Other than that, I am extremely happy to have this re-release. Finally there is an official version of Sunshine Woman. I ended up playing the 3rd CD of unreleased tracks in my car for 3 days straight. Now I have moved on to the rest of the release.
  5. I think Ten Years Gone and In the Light are underrated. They are excellent musical works of art just like Stairway to Heaven and I feel they get overshadowed by it. I wonder, if Stairway didn't exist, would either of these 2 songs have received more attention?
  6. I calculated my order there as $147.55 with shipping (I wasn't given an option for shipping internationally). Since it is an American company, the price in American dollars unless otherwise stated. My Amex card converts to CAD later at a better rate (I save a few cents). That brings the total to $193.17 CAD.... so not much difference. The shipping option with Import CD is DHL/Fedex which leave your packages on your door step. Sometimes they notify you and sometimes they don't and sometimes they leave it on the door step when you're home but still say there was no answer. The free Amazon.ca shipping option uses Canada Post which holds my parcels for pickup for 7 days.
  7. I ordered it in July for $175.88 CAD ($202.26 tax inc.) with Amazon.ca

  9. Thanks. It was an interesting (and long) read. It seems that Malofiy seemed to be forgetting little details or misplacing things.... unless that was his strategy to frustrate Page's lawyer. His approach to trick Page into omission of knowing Taurus was slimy but expected from the prosecution.
  10. This is great news!!! For someone like me who never got into Zep until 1997 and doesn't own a bunch of bootlegs or original vinyl, this is fantastic. My first Zep vinyl started with the first set of Super Deluxe Boxsets. For me, the reissues gave me the chance to have all of Zep's music on 180g vinyl and in high quality digital format, as well as a few rare gems. My main wishlist for these gems was: Jennings Farm Blues, Sugar Mama, Everybody Makes It Through (the darker/creepy version), Friends (Bombay sessions), and Sunshine Woman (I didn't think the BBC Session would be reissued). With the exception of not getting Sunshine Woman on Coda like I had hoped, these Deluxe Boxset reissues delivered. Especially with other gems like St. Tristan's Sword, La La, Keys To The Highway, 10 Ribs & All, and different versions of Bring It On Home, When The Levee Breaks, and Since I've Been Loving You, etc. Sure some albums could have use songs that were more different that what they were from the originals. Considering tapes were stolen from Jimmy, I'm happy with what we got. Although I was disappointed that Roberts voice wasn't more clearer on In Through The Outdoor and that Stairway to Heaven didn't differ much from the original (although maybe that stupid lawsuit had something to do with that). I'm even more happy that these BBC session are coming out. I really love the songs The Girl I Love, Something Else, and Sunshine Woman. They are some awesome non LP songs and some of those performances are superb. I just hope Sunshine Woman is a decent quality, although it has to be better than the bootleg version I have. My only other option was to buy a 1997 release unopened for $500-800 or $300-400 used copy. I refused to pay that much. Now, if Jimmy would only release How the West Was Won on vinyl and an official Royal Albert Hall 1970 release on vinyl, then I'd be very happy. I'd accept having the material from the DVD transcribed on vinyl, as long as I get C'mon Everybody and that version of Something Else. Along with We're Gonna Groove, those are some kick ass songs from that show.
  11. If the 2 songs are any indication of what Train's Zep album will sound like, then personally I think Train sounds more like Zep. I guess the studio recording/mixing helps in doing Zep tunes justice. As for live, from what I saw online, I'd take the Black Crowes with Page live over Train. I do like them both singing Zep. I though the Great White's Zep cover albums wasn't too bad either.
  12. Thanks for the links "The Pagemaster". Pat Monahan really does some justice in singing the songs. I checked to see what he was like doing Zep live and it's not too bad. I like some of Train's music, so I'll definitely buy this album, along with some official Train albums.
  13. What a piece of work this lawyer is. He says he used to be a fan, but then calls Led Zeppelin unoriginal and a cover band. This article sheds some light on how sketchy this lawyer is. Also, the Infringed Song Chart taken from the lawsuit amounts mostly to hearsay. Only 7 of 17 songs listed are proven to have seen legal proceedings. I could say "No Action Taken" on any Zep song. I'm glad the judge ruled no previous settlements/legal proceedings were inadmissible.
  14. and Shaking All Over, although this one isn't complete. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIIa9y0ZjSo
