  1. Why In Through The Out Door is a GREAT album

    The last 2 minutes or so of Carouselambra are great (starting at Bonzo's fills at 8:08, but I especially love the last minute). Bonham is just going crazy and the tension is just fantastic. Has always been one of my favorite parts of any Zep tune. Evidence that Zep could still bring (a bit of) the Hammer of The Gods when it wanted to.
  2. How much of that 2nd source exists? Of course, the Millard recording is glorious and one of the All-Time Greats, but this 2nd source isn't bad. Would love to hear it if more exists. Very interested in finding it if anyone knows.
  3. Why In Through The Out Door is a GREAT album

    Really-REALLY-love this album. Page's solos are incendiary. The crunch of his solos in INE, the one in SBS you mentioned, and IGC... which is simply beautiful. And yeah, SBS... no matter how many times I try to keep time with Bonzo I manage to F it up. I just can't figure it out. His drumming on that entire album is fantastic.
  4. Why In Through The Out Door is a GREAT album

    I didn't stop to think about the post too much. You're right. Still a great last album that gets dumped on too much by critics. ITTOD is fantastic.
  5. Why In Through The Out Door is a GREAT album

    Boy... I've never thought of it THAT way. The greatest last album a band, ANY BAND, ever released. Wow. How true is that??????
  6. Why In Through The Out Door is a GREAT album

    I've rediscovered this album recently. Have fallen back in love with it all over again. Substitute Wearing For Tearing for Hot Dog and it's a Killer F'ing album all the way thru.

    Not a huge fan of the this live, but going to give this a listen. Thanks. The studio version is just brilliant. You ever "reconnect" with a Zep tune after some time off? This and The Epic (which should've been used on the official release)... recently, just can't get enough of either of these songs.
  8. Led Zeppelin or Related on YouTube

    Cannot believe this is the first I've seen of this. Damn that was awesome. What a F*CKING catalog of music they have!!! Just gets me all goosebumply, if that's a word.
  9. What's your favorite live Trampled Underfoot?

    1st place - 5/24/75 - I agree with whoever said it earlier in the thread... this is one of the top 5 moments on stage for Zep. Just fascinated by how good this is. It literally NEVER gets old or boring. 2nd - 3/24/75 - As Luis Rey says "It's absolute, fabulous chaos." Have always loved this version. Bonham does some real interesting shit in it. 3rd place goes to 4/27/77 - Bonzo's playful, creative fills really makes this one unique.
  10. The Entourage

    That's Paul Rodgers?? It looks just like a young Walter Matthau. Great thread, BTW.
  11. Atlanta 1973 soundcheck photos

    Just noticed that!
  12. 1977 Close Up Behind John Bonham Drums Pic's

    Wonder what the bucket's for....????? HAHAHAH
  13. Saw this on Twitter last night and something immediately jumped out at me... The positioning of Bonzo's Speed King Bass Drum pedal. Look at how cocked it is and check out the angle of Bonzo's foot. Am I seeing that correctly?
  14. I don't think I've seen it. Direct me to it when you get a chance, if you don't mind. I'm still looking at that pic above and saying to myself, "Something just aint right about it." The arms of the pedal look to be at a 45 to the bass drum head. Just odd all the way around...
  15. This is just fantastic. I had no idea when I made this thread last week that we'd be talking about an entirely different and nearly complete source like this. You've instantly become a legend my friend.
  16. Amsterdam 72 Video Question

    Well, Cole wasn't too pleased about it being opened, was he?! Hahaha.
  17. What's the worst live performance of a song?

    Yeah-a little bit. Went and listened to it again and Jimmy is a little weak. Bonzo is magnificent (as usual in 77) which hides a lot of Jimmy's sloppiness.
  18. Yep. And just listen to Bonham on the 5/24/75 STH. He gets overlooked because it's one of Jimmy's best ever solos, but Bonham was spectacular on it.
  19. The atmosphere is fantastic! A different perspective for sure, which is why I made this thread on it. I don't care how inferior this is to Eddie, it's cool as hell listening to another source of this legendary show. Awesome find.
  20. What's the worst live performance of a song?

    I've always stayed away from this one. This and Greensboro 75. Too much of a diehard fanboy to listen to arguably their two worst shows. Will. Not. Do. It!!!!
