  1. Couldn't we surmise Zeppelin was a jam Band essentially? They tried to do what jam bands do and take the audience somewhere else sometimes hitting and sometimes missing? Never trying to replicate what's on record. I kind of dig that because if I want to hear an exact copy of the record and I can stay home and listen to the record. A unique performance can only happen once.
  2. I think its a hard question. The bands influenced by Zeppelin seemed to be influenced by one aspect of the band, the bombastic heavy side. While Zeppelin itself was pretty diverse in its output. I think that is the magic that cannot be captured and copied. Alright I would say Heart at least did the heavy and the acoustic pretty well for a band influenced by Zeppelin.
  3. Holy Shit!!! Is that Jimmy actually reaching out to the audience? I just never imagined he did stuff like that. I guess in those days it was possible because the distance between him and audience was not tremendous.
  4. I do think it was the right time. Would there have been a push and pull between the band members, (checks and balances) or would Robert have tried to dominate in lieu of a solo career? I would hate to think Zeppelin would merely be Robert's backing band.
  5. Code on label: Side one: ST-A-712285 SP Side two: ST-A-712286 SP
  6. Okay I will start things off: White dust sleeve SIDE 1 PORKY ST-A-71-2285-C AT/9P SIDE 2 PECKO DUCK ST-A-7122860 AT13P To the best of my ability...
  7. I have had many copies of this album on vinyl throughout my life and I always wonder why sometimes I get a brown dust sleeve and sometimes white? (I prefer the white) Brown or white sleeve on the first pressings and which is more common? Also is the recent vinyl reissue dust sleeve brown on white?
  8. Sounds like a guy who is drunk/high in the moment who is disillusioned with life and has a fantasy that California is the promised land (irrationally). If he could just make it there. But he never even makes the effort. Maybe even an old man looking back at his broken life? Or perhaps the man is dying and California is an analogy for Heaven? I know Zep referenced Lord of the Rings at times and I think this has that kind of theme to it. Specifically the Hobbit. A great adventure awaits. Of course Bilbo was reluctant and this song is overlaid with jet planes to bring it to a more modern world.
  9. Jimmy should have just joined the Crowes. They should have written together. I would love to hear the results. They seemed like a perfect fit for him.
  10. They could house the collection in a one of those obelisk's from the Presence cover, or perhaps a blimp.
  11. The Who in the 60's were phenomenal at writing about awkward teenage life culminating in Tommy. I am not a big fan of the 70's stadium rock Who, they just became so much less interesting. Zeppelin blows away 70's Who.
  12. Only Jim was a bad boy, the other 3 were sane, serious musicians. It should have never been called Jim Morrison and the Doors. Jim hated that kind of thing. To me personally if Ray was missing in the lineup The Doors would have never succeeded. Also wasn't it Robbie who actually wrote the hits that charted?
  13. I had a bootleg that was entirely Jimmy supposedly noodling around trying to figure out the song. I used to tease my friend when she wanted to do something that we could spend the evening just listening this and she would tell me hell no.
  14. Its all good. Music is very subjective. Jackson 5 are great.
  15. Slightly off topic, but it just recently occurred to me Zeppelin wrote Stairway only 2 years in. That's pretty amazing. I guess being the fourth album its easier to assume it was much later if you don't think about it.
