  1. http://ledzepnews.com/2017/12/19/jimmy-page-said-previously-unheard-led-zeppelin-music-manner-surprises-will-released-bands-fiftieth-anniversary/ “There’ll be Led Zeppelin product coming out, for sure, that people haven’t heard,” Page said, “because I’m working on that. Next year will be the fiftieth year so there’s all manner of surprises coming out.”
  2. I've never seen that before, you can see why the acoustics were a nightmare.
  3. Given the amount of attention this gig is getting on another thread, I thought it deserved one of its own, seemingly one of their great early gigs but so little evidence of it exists. Is this picture from this actual show, was anyone on the forum at the gig & does anyone have anything else to contribute?
  4. Planet Rock interview: 50th celeb Page

    Nobody is the bad guy here. It's just not worth pinning your hopes on what someone who was a rock star 40 years ago says. Just forget about it & enjoy the music that we do have.
  5. Planet Rock interview: 50th celeb Page

    After the first few times you really should have twigged that he's not going to be doing anything new and moved on. I'm not sure why he continues to say it but it's certainly not something that bothers me. I doubt anyone feels sorry for Jimmy Page but a lot of us are thankful for the joy he's brought to our lives & don't really need anything else from him.
  6. Planet Rock interview: 50th celeb Page

    Jimmy Page is highly unlikely to play in public again. People should really get over it & just enjoy the Zeppelin stuff he's doing, you don't have to buy it.
  7. Planet Rock interview: 50th celeb Page

    Why does it 'certainly not' refer to a Japan '71 release?
  8. Really enjoying these videos & I've PM'd you a couple of suggestions, Porgie. Cheers & keep 'em coming.
  9. I've just been listening to a bootleg of the Newport Jazz Festival performance from 1969, it'd be great to hear a properly recorded version of that. The Miles Davis gig from that festival sounds great.
  10. They're absolutely amazing. My life would be complete if a recording of this was to ever come out.
  11. The Jazz Thread

    I've been slowly dipping my toe into Coltrane's 'free' later period, I'm currently somewhere in between A Love Supreme & Ascension, haven't got as far as Interstellar Space yet. My current favourite albums are Eric Dolphy's Outward Bound, Coltrane's Sun Ship & Circle in the Round, which is a Miles Davis odds & sods release.
  12. HTWWW Remasters coming out this March!

    Looks like this is going to be the first release of 2018, disappointing that there are no new tracks but the possibility is that they're being held back for something in the future. Personally, I'll be waiting to hear what the remastering sounds like before taking the plunge on this one. I was always happy with the 2003 version.
  13. HTWWW Remasters coming out this March!

    To be fair, it deserves it's own thread so you can take your hairy foot out for now.

    The 1971 Black Dog from Japan that Steve posted up on here a few days back sounded great (although it was only a YouTube clip). The gossip I'm reading would suggest we're getting 1968 stuff this year rather than a Japan release however.
  15. Jason Bonham photo from 1967

    Well he wasn't famous in 1967 & the only other pictures I've seen from 1967 are the Band of Joy ones (see below). It's quite possible that he went two or three months without many pictures being taken of him (after having his hair curled). Someone would probably have to ask Pat Bonham if it was a wig although as per my earlier post, there is mention of a Hendrix-inspired afro in the John Bonham books (Thunder of Drums or Mick Bonham's book), I'll need to check.
  16. There's a reissue of HTWWW on Amazon.com scheduled for 23rd of March.
  17. Seen this posted elsewhere, take it or leave it... "When Page reached out to the boot communities to find out what was circulating, that was to find out what needs the copyright refresh. The new bits and pieces are the reasons to get the hardcore fans (who already have the boots) to buy. The Olympic material was earmarked for LZ1 reissue but had to be held back for a 2nd release. (The 50th). The live tapes from 1968 are what's being worked on, but I don't know if it's getting put on this release, or the live compilation that is eventually coming out. *And they're all involved to some degree. But I don't think Robert is working specifically on any audio. *And the instrumental "Knowing That I'm Losing You" was released because there IS an earlier LZ version of Tangerine. (That probably is being released)" 68 is getting a dedicated release (I don't how the remaining years are being released).
  18. Jason Bonham photo from 1967

    By the way, I don't think it's a wig. There's definitely mention of an (Hendrix inspired) afro in one of my John Bonham books by one of his acquaintances.

    I get his sarcasm & generally find his sense of humour to be right up my street. After 40 years of being asked the same questions, laughing at the interviewers would probably be my response too.
  20. Jason Bonham photo from 1967

    No moustache & an afro? If this is all I get for the 50th anniversary then I'll be happy with that. If a picture of John Bonham playing drums in 1967 emerges then you can just stick a fork in me.
  21. Yeah it's the 24th & he's not having a great night.
  22. I absolutely love the Earls Court stuff on DVD. The full concert bootleg DVD I have though isn't great, definitely an off night for Bonham.

    Yeah, him saying that he won't do a reunion tour for the last 30 odd years does sound pretty conflicted.
  24. Terry Reid

    I absolutely love River & Seed of Memory. Rich Kid Blues & May Fly from his eponymous 1969 LP are also great tracks...
