  1. Half of PG was already recorded or written previously. They played Bron-Yr-Aur in some 1970 shows. Black Country Woman and Houses of the Holy were also recording in 1972. Didn't they play Black Country Woman in 72?
  2. I bet this soundcheck or part of it is released with either Houses of the Holy or Physical Graffiti re-release. Along with the Chicago 07-06 soundcheck.
  3. I might be able to get it down to about 100 I really like. Don't think I can pick a few above that.
  4. It doesn't matter what you or any of the fans think. The members of the band called it Led Zeppelin and preformed to their best abilities. It was about as awesome a moment and we'll get. Back to the topic. O2 version is up there. Probably my favorite overall considering the circumstances. Vancouver March 19th 1975 is also a favorite of mine. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDpbLdc1U8M
  5. It's not completely satirical. Haggard didn't particularly like those that protested the vietnam war the way they did. There was a little bit of that in the song. He was very much for the troops. He wrote other songs more blatantly pro troops in that period as well. "Fighting Side of Me" being the most notable. But a lot of the song was more based on his dad being the ultra conservative type. In interviews I've read on Merle he seems very libertarian in his views talking about civil rights and that we should be on the gold standard. This should really all be in a different thread. Don't know how we got into Merle Haggard's politics in a thread about Zeppelin's grammy. The Grammy's are not about awards anymore. Which is probably the only thing making it watchable in some sense. It's basically a big concert show now. Glad Zeppelin got recognized but their legendary status was pretty much put in place without the help of the Grammys.
  6. He's more of a libertarian actually. Okie from Muskogee was actually and ironic song referring to his father. Merle was a big pot head during that time. Zeppelin deserved grammys in the 70s. This one just shows how weak music is today.
  7. Appropriate song for this time of the year.
  8. I think Jimmy doesn't like using labels like that for anyone but himself. And possibly John Bonham.
  9. There are probably hundreds of songs Page played in and some we may never know for sure because we don't know which final mixes were used for some songs. Page supposedly played in Patula Clark's "Downtown", Marianne Faithfull's "As Tears Go By" Rolling Stone's "Heart of Stone", and possibly others like It's Not Unusual by Tom Jones, several Kinks songs. A few Yardbird songs.
  10. That will probably be announced when it's annonced what formats it will be released in. I'm not sure there will be a ton of extras to release with the length being basically the length of the show(2 hours and 4 minutes)
  11. There will be edits between the songs I just hope that all the full songs from the concert are released. I don't really care if they edit out the plantations and waits in between songs. There will also be overdubs and sound fixes here and there. Again no big deal to me. The sound of every live thing Zepp has released has been amazing.
  12. In 07 it was 100 times bigger. Sites like this were getting so much traffic that the servers couldn't handle it.
  13. There's probablyi around 50 or more really good ones that just about anyone can listen to. Honestly the list is too long to go through.
  14. When you realize that Rush one of the most influencial progressive hard rock bands still isn't in the R&RHOF after about 12 or 13 years of being eligible, that thing lost credibility a long time ago.
