  1. Excellent choices has been made already, beloved 929 mentioned several times.........So, I vote for 9/23/1971 Budokan, Tokyo. To warrant a great release, it has to be the antithesis of HTWWW: Presented in a lavish 3 CD and 4 LP package, using only actual pictures of 9/23. No editing! No idiotic sound-polishing! Of course including the coversongs, royalties has to be paid this time! (Dear Mr. Page, you can`t eat money & the very last shirt has no pockets) Recommended title: "Many, Many Moons Ago"
  2. I have all official releases on Vinyl. The sound of Vinyl & the coverartwork in LP-size- simply perfect. Seven Vinyl boots excluded, all my boots are on CD. No downloads.
  3. Indeed, so many confusing details about 9/29 Jimmy Page declared the Japan recordings not suitable for an official release- do we have to trust in his rating? Anyway, he would butcher/polish the tapes like he did with HTWWW, cut out the banter and the awesome covers- we can only wait for a bootleg-release. By the way, the members of Deep Purple were worried when their record company recorded their Aug. 1972 gigs with dated equipment- the results can be heard on "Made in Japan". And yes, I reallly think that all the hitherto existing 9/29 "SB" boots are merely from the SB-split recording.
  4. To my understanding the "so called" SB of 9/29 was a soundboard/split, a recording someone made without permission of the band or the people who were in charge of recording the show- that is why the recording is so unbalanced. I think this theory is confirmed with the recently released Black Dog teaser of 9/28, which has superb balanced sound. Think, why should the real SB of 9/29 sound worse than the recording of the previous day? Same venue, same gear- no need to alter anything.
  5. Yeah, we do need a Japan 1971 SB release, and most likely it will be 9.28.71- the bonus teaser track on "Rock Carnival" is from the 28th Sept., the first night in Osaka. I really hope it will be released in 2017. And for 9.29.71: Maybe there is also a real SB with same quality as the Black Dog teaser from the 28th. I know a lot of people looking forward to the 3.21.75 release in June, so do I, but I think after the long string of 1975 SBs it is about time for for Japan 1971, or anything from 70-72.
  6. Hi ZepHead315 May I ask which releases you prefer of 10/2 Tokyo & 10/10 Kyoto? EVs "Led Zeppelin Is My Brother" is the best I have heard so far for Tokyo. Do you know Taranturas "Evil Spirits In Kyoto"? One of the three sources sounds really amazing( I`ve listened to samples on Black Beauty), although Bootledz report that the sources are unnecessarily mixed- or do you like the EV or Wendy versions better? Many thanks in advance!

  8. Yes, indeed- it is taken from Vinyl sources, all speed corrected, the transitions are smooth. A very enjoyable remaster. But I think the Winston Remaster is only the second best solution to my ears. "Live in Japan 929" by Wendy with its wonderful clarity and impressing dynamics is second to none.
  9. Hi Bozoso73 Thank you very much for the hints, the samples on the Black Beauty web page are very helpful- a great supplement to Argenteum Astrum, Collectors Music Reviews and I am happy to report that my research was successful: I will hunt for the silvers of EVSDs - "Led Zeppelin is my brother" 2.Oct & Wendys "Stand by me" 9.Oct. Japan 1972 seems not to be in the centre of attention on the forum, since your post is the only reply yet. But maybe I`ll get some opinions on Tokyo 3.Oct, Osaka 4.Oct & the Nagoya & Kyoto boots. Thanks again
  10. Hi, I need your assistance, please. I`ve decided to renew/expand my Japan-1972-Boots. The boots I have are about 20 years old, only Oct. 2. Tokyo & Oct. 9. Osaka. A friend of mine got "Far East Side Story" for Oct. 2. & "Stand By Me" for Oct. 9., both Wendy releases and both far better than my old boots. But are they the best available? Please let me know about your choices about the best boots for each/one of the six Japan Concerts. Many thanks in advance!
  11. Haha, of course he could surprise us at any time, as he did: In his last newsletter, just a few days ago, he announced that his business will be closed soon, because he will leave Japan for vacation (to attend concerts abroad). And what a fortunate coincedence it will be, the day he is back in business Deus Ex Machina will be released! Don`t you worry, just a little more patience...... By the way. Empress Valley & our Gentleman in Tokyo should finally release the complete SB of Osaka 9.28.1971 which is long overdue. This will be a Big one- I have been waiting for 20 years.............
  12. And what about the sound of this marbled vinyl? I have the Black Crowes "Wiser For The Time" 4LP-Set on marbled vinyl & it sounds really awful.
  13. EV has just released their newest version. Live On Blueberry Hill 6 CDs Box Set CDs 1 & 2 Mono Master EVSD 530 & 531 CDs 3 & 4 Stereo Master EVSD 532 & 533 CDs 5 & 6 The Nobs, Copenhagen 28.Feb 1970- very strange, heaven knows why they add The Nobs as a bonus. I will keep calm until a reliable source confirms this release as definitive or better than the Eat A Peach release.
  14. Yeah, you must be joking! I agree to 100% that "What happened to your voice in 72, Robert?" is on the very top of the list. But sadly only in theory. I bet that his ego would NEVER EVER allow this question. Past, present or future: He would book this question as "Injury to his Majesty, Robert Anthony 1." Honestly, he turns 69 this year & still thinks he has the veto right to put down the cronological live album, a hearfelt wish of Jimmy since the 70ies! Jimmy, the man he owes more to than anyone else!!!- and he doesn`t give a shit. He had the guts to strut the stage 73 to 75, doing his Golden God thing, head full of snow, groupies and all that jazz, while his voice was shot at 75% of the shows. Why is he acting like a miffed old maid? We all know, that Jimmy would surely pick great shows with Robert in marvelous voice, why worry? What happened to his voice in 72? Alcohol, cocaine (of course C. can damage a voice by damaging the nose & the paranasal sinuses causing a gridlocked nose), too many late nights & his unnecessarily shrieking in the early days due to his insecurity & too much cigarettes........ He did not only lose his high range by Oct. 72, the warmth tone of his low range was gone, adding the sound of a locked nose on top of that. His natural voice was a God-given gift, he treated so thoughtlessly. What a shame.
  15. About Sonic Boom: The stereo mix has the odd separation, Mr. Jones on the left channel while the other members have to share the right channel- not very satisfying listening experience..... And now on to the good news: The mono mix has a good balance & you can crank it up to 11. Compared to EVs Florida Sunshine it is slightly less clear in the top range, particularly the voice, cymbals & keyboard. The only drawback is that the voice is a little overloaded (not distorted), means whenever Robert turns up there is a low sizzling noise, but not disturbing to my ears. All in all the mono mix is very enjoyable.
