  1. Immigrant Song, 6/15/72. They pummeled the audiences routinely with this, but on that night, it's just out of this world. Can't imagine having been there, up close to the stage for that one.
  2. A best-of Earl's Court album/release would be KILLER. Even if it's just from the 24th/25th. The first 1/3 of the 25th is spectacular stuff. The band is on FIRE. You could mix up the middle 1/3 with both nights (NQ and TU would undoubtedly be taken from the 24th), then end it with the D&C and STH from the 24th with the encores from the 25th. That's a long, HEAVY, and at times BRILLIANT compilation of live music/performances. So: RnR - 5/25 SA - 5/25 OTHAFA - 5/25 IMTOD - 5/25 TSRTS - 5/25 TRS - 5/25 K - 5/24 NQ - 5/24 (Definitive version) Tangerine - 5/24 GTC - 5/24 TTW - 5/24 BYStomp - 5/25 TU - 5/24 (Definitive version) MD - 5/25 D&C - 5/24 STH - 5/24 (Definitive version) WLL/BD - 5/25 H - 5/25 CB - 5/25 A couple of these picks could be easily switched... If Page ever put something like this out it would be an amazing live release. I'll even just take the audio of it.
  3. AMEN!
  4. Fascinating. What year(s) would this have been?
  5. BUSTED!! I just gave that 2/14 STH a listen based on your recommendation. Holy shit, that smokes! I love that show.
  6. Huh?! WHAT!??
  7. Well done, sir. That is hilarious.
  8. If there was a tell-all book describing/detailing these Zep SBD releases I'd be one of the first ones in line to buy it. This shit absolutely fascinates the hell out of me. God, what I wouldn't do to see a list of the shows they're sitting on...
  9. Well, I could've told you that!! haha
  10. It's up on Dime. Cannot wait to get home.
  11. I'd agree with that.
  12. OOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Yes! Great choice(s)! Those 71 gigs were just crazy! Bonham's bass drum! And Plant's vocals, out of this world.
  13. Well said.
  14. The '75 boards are highly enjoyable. If you think they suck you should probably stick strictly to the studio stuff.
  15. Rightly or wrongly that was his way... that's all I was saying.
  16. I don't mean to sound pushy and selfish here, BUT WHERE'S THE REST!!??? Have listened to these back to back for the last 30 min or so and they sound freaking fabulous! I know this stuff takes a long, long time and requires tons of patience, but man... I sure hope you have plans on doing this whole show. Great job.
  17. Bingo! Those fills make every hair on my body stand up. God damnit, was he special.
  18. I had been on the look out for the 3/11/75 matrix for months and just found it yesterday. Gotta say, it was very underwhelming. Not because of the job that was done (not sure who did it), but because Millard's audience source just doesn't complement the SBD (and vice-versa) well at all. I thought it'd be devastatingly good, but it's not. That audience source just breathes so much it just doesn't make for a tight fit/match of the two. This 5/14/73 matrix sounds great. Heartbreaker rocks.
  19. Love it. Think it sounds great.
  20. Been a few years since I've actually bought silvers from Eric, due to him using PayPal now and my account being jacked up. If I remember correctly, about a week. Maybe even up to 10 days.
  21. I was playing the first couple numbers from 4/27/77 Destroyer... TSRTS and then The Rover/Sick Again at a tailgate party at Notre Dame last fall when a guy started yelling from 3 aisles away, "That's Zep in 77! That's Zep in 77!" Came over and had me play the entire Disc 1 and then Achilles as he pounded beers, telling me all about the Pontiac show he attended "3 days later!" Had a blast with the guy.
  22. That's awesome Bong Man! Thanks. Can you give more details about the sound during the show? You say there wasn't a "Oh my ears, man!" moment... Just how loud and clear was it and how'd Bonham's stainless kit sound? I've heard the stainless gave off a much more pronounce "boom" sound... His drums in Cleveland on the 28th sound absolutely spectacular. Did the Silverdome just make his kit sound worse (muffled), like you say? Lucky bastard having seen Zep Live! Wow. Envy you, Bong Man.
  23. I saw that. Something tells me had Prez still been around that post would've been nuked in 2.2.
