  1. Has anyone inquired with Mr Fishead about a clue? I suppose this is some sort of big dramatic mystery to get Zep fans frothing at the mouth and ready to drop $$$ tout suite.
  2. Yep, I agree with Daltry here. He said what an amazing waste of talent, he's a genius.
  3. Clams in high definition!?
  4. I'm not being ridiculous. Just look at the number of Zep bootlegs listed on eBay and notice the sellers. Most of them are in Japan, and are in business and sell multiple copies of titles. I was selling off a few titles from my personal collection and got warned once, then banned from selling for life. It's very easy for someone to flag an item as unauthorized and it's perfectly logical that a high volume seller of bootleg merchandise would flag my listing if they also want to sell the same title for twice as much. I see the same sellers with their overpriced boots listing titles over and over. They break the rules every day, for years, and do so without consequence. If ebay were serious about cracking down on sellers of unauthorized live recordings they would easily spot and target these guys, but they don't. However, they shut my little ass down tout suite. Double standard. That is why I can't stand eBay.
  5. LOL!
  6. eBay banned me for life for selling some bootleg Zep CDs from my collection. However, I see boots constantly listed by the same opportunistic high volume sellers, most of which are overpriced. Likely one of those skank ass sellers reported me to eliminate competition. What load of shit, I can't stand eBay.
  7. Yawn. Wake me up when it's a board tape from 71 to 73.
  8. Oh! Another 75 soundboard. Please can someone cut loose a 71,72, 73 new show?
  9. Ok. See my above post. The original Rubber Dubber vinyl can be found for as little as $50 if you look online.
  10. Absolutely. Let me see if it's still up on the trading sites. If you can't access it online then I'll send you folders via Dropbox or wetransfer. They will be lossless WAV files though and will take up space. I have the complete folders with artwork.
  11. Wow, you missed a big one there. The thread is exhaustive. Mainly he wouldn't even jam on a blues for salivating fans. He hasn't done any live performing for years. Strapping on a guitar and jamming on a couple tunes shouldn't have been an issue at all but he just won't play. Maybe he is so out of shape he's not comfortable even playing on a blues. Bizarre to think but...?
  12. Thanks, appreciate the kind words. It may be that he thought was a low gen share but it was simply the Neutral Zone source. Personally, I love the sound of the Cobra boot for this show best. eat A Peach is cool in terms of completeness and editing is pretty good but the vibe of the Cobra release is very lively and raw. Can't remember what source that is and who else used it. I'd have to consult Brannon's site.
  13. Hey Toshiro! This is the info for the project we did. I provided the Rubber Dubber LP rip from my own copy but I don't know about the 1st source origins, just that it was supposedly from a Dub Taylor's tape. According to the guy who headed this remaster , the 1st source tape was a low gen acquired in a trade. ?? Maybe he was mistaken but I highlighted in red the text regarding the source used. Here is the info text: Led Zeppelin - "Heavy Vibraphones" September, 4th, 1970, Inglewood, California, The Great Western Forum (L.A.

Please Do Not Convert To Lossy Formats Please Do Not Sell Please Share With Others Notes: This project is a combination of both raw and remastered versions of 2 of our favourite, and what we personally think are the best sounding versions of the 1st (TMOQ) and 2nd (Rubber Dubber) tape sources of the infamous "Blueberry Hill" Show. The recordings have just been remastered, they have not been merged together with other tape sources to make a complete show. We chose to do just straight remasters of these tape sources for this reason: There are 6 tape sources of this show in circulation, each source is very good, and brings something to the table, (i.e: some have more tape in between songs, some are more complete than others, some sound better than others, etc). Zeppelin collectors have very strong feelings about this show, and what they feel is the best tape source of the 6 in circulation, and what sources would make for a "perfect mix". They also have very strong opinions about which version of the tape is the best, so trying to put together a merge of this show that will please collectors is a very tricky thing to do. We decided to spare ourselves that headache and just focus on improving the sound quality of these tape sources. This project was just done in fun, we had no intentions of releasing a definitive version of this show. The 1st tape source came to me in a trade I made with a very close friend of mine many years ago. I've only traded it out to other people a handfull of times, I really didn't think it was anymore special then the other versions of the 1st tape source until I started hearing other versions/releases of the 1st tape source. This version I'm sharing with everyone has a much fuller, and brighter sound to it then previous releases. The biggest advantage this version has over the others though is that it's running at the correct tape speed, older versions ( like GM's "Blueberry Hill") run too slow. The 2nd tape source (known as the "Rubber Dubber" source) comes straight from an original Rubber Dubber LP. Porgie's transfer sounds much better than the boot releases I've heard. Whether the change in sound quality is due to the transfer, or if they transferred it from something like a cassette copy of the LP (like some of the "PB" releases) I don't know, but I personally find the silver releases to be a little duller than Porgie's transfer (nothing beats the sound of vinyl). As for the remasters, this is what we've done: - We've tried to balance the instruments and the acoustics as much as possible. - We've reduced as much tape hiss as possible. - We've tried to bring out things that were buried in the recording (crowd cheers,clapping,commentary). The title comes from a Plantation Robert makes before the band play "Since I've Been Loving You". We wanted to come up with a different title idea for this project instead of just recycling the "Blueberry Hill" title because we felt it's been done to death. We had come up with several different title ideas, we had thought about calling the project "Up To No Good In Inglewood", "Floor 'Em At The Forum", and "Manifest Destiny". They sounded good, but really didn't stick, and pack the kind of punch we wanted. One day, while listening to the work we'd done on the recording..it hits us. We came to the part where the band is about to play "Since I've Been Loving You", and he says to the crowd "Heavy Vibraphones!", and we thought that sounded pretty cool, and decided to use it. We hope everyone here will enjoy this. Cheers!
  14. Well, I'm not talking about mp3. Lossless files ripped to a cdr that you can blast on your stereo is one way to economically enjoy Winston's work for very little cost or time. $10 is fine I guess for the disc and artwork but it is disrespectful to WRs wishes that his work not be sold for profit.
  15. There was a thread recently on this same question. Empress Valleys Dinosaur In Motion is about the best silver pressed set. I seem to remember Taranturas Blow Jobs was good too. I would look for the low gen two source mix that was on the trading sites a few years ago. Download free, bootlegs expensive. 😏
