  1. After recently watching the ''Brian Johnson's Life on the Road'' interview with Robert it's obvious that he is comfortable and happy with his life. He is doing and has done exactly what he wanted. Most interesting was what he said about the O2 reunion show in 2007 "it was just a "gesture". To me it was a fleeting glimpse of what was and what will never be again, quite rightly so too imho. Led Zeppelin ended thirty seven years ago, there are people who are younger than that who have had children who have had children, it's a long time a go......
  2. Though I say I'm not really a fan at one time I had half a dozen or so of their albums on vinyl, I have recently bought the "Gone to Earth and Octoberon" three disc deluxe sets, both have DVD's with the albums in 5.1 surround sound. I also have a fan made Quad DVD-A of their "Once Again" album. I suppose the not really a fan thing comes from back in the late seventies when they were touring the XI album (the butterfly sleeve) a bunch of us had tickets to see them at the Liverpool Empire, we were in a pub before the concert and decided to stay there and sack the concert, so half a dozen or so tickets went to waste.
  3. Well we all have our own likes and dislikes, but as far as introducing live shows to a newbie I would go more for 69 to 73, I would not go anywhere near 75 and beyond. In fact last night I was listening to Fillmore West 10 Jan 69, now that's a REALLY good place to start.
  4. Not really a fan of BJH, but they put out a few decent tunes, this one is quite catchy.
  5. Yes, dry flat and lifeless, though I really like MSG 2/12/75, that one is really brought to life with the "Bluecongo" matrix "Four Blocks in the Snow"..
  6. I'm confident that I am right, every other 75 SBD, the only parts that are noticeably stereo are Jimmy's bow solo and a little of the mid section of Moby Dick.
  7. Prepare to be underwhelmed, another dry 1975 sounboard that is 95% mono despite the blurb claims that it is perfect stereo.
  8. There is no reduction in sentence, he has served the minimum nine years of a 9 to 30. A rather severe sentence no matter what you think when after all it was his stuff he was trying to retrieve and that has been proven.
  9. I could add Sky sports to my TV package for an extra £18 per month (about $28) but I'm paying £44 already. As the majority of our viewing is via free channels I'm paying that £44 per month for things like Game of Thrones, Twin Peaks (the return) etc, basically HBO, Showtime programmes, a lot of money for very little.
  10. How so, how is that possible. There is nothing about PG that ''sucks''now (I hate the term sucks) so little bit of song shuffle is not going to change anything.
  11. You gave me a laugh, I saw what you did.
  12. The Open was last at Hoylake in I think 2014 and previous to that in 2006 then before that along way back in about 1967. Birkdale though not far from Manchester is closer to Liverpool, there's not much in it though, fifteen to twenty miles difference maybe. I'm slightly envious that you have five channels for the Open, I'm stuck with the nightly two hours of BBC highlights..
  13. I'm not far away from Royal Birkdale either, in fact I could use my free local bus/train travel pass to get there, oh the joys of being sixty. Now if the tourney was at Royal Liverpool Hoylake I could drive there in just over five minutes. Anyway I'd forgotten that last year I watched the Open via a bad Fire Stick/Kodi stream, couldn't get it to work yesterday so the two hours of highlights on BBC Two last night had to do.
  14. On a Nick Drake fan site for sure, doubtless there are people here at that have not got a clue who Nick Drake is..
  15. Just had a nose, looked at Blueberry Hill, some versions have been pulled others have not. It can only be a good thing because of all the rip off merchants with their outrageous prices. I paid £5 for my beige pastel sleeve TMQ red/amber vinyl(s) back in 1973. No way is BH worth any more than £25 these days. You would have to be a fool to pay the £200+ some prick is asking.
  16. Discogs is your friend here, you can input the dead wax details to find your version.
  17. Things need to change, I don't care who the presenters are, as long as they report in a coherent manner, no need to shell out ridiculous money on so called "well knowns"
  18. I absolutely hate the sound of ITTOD, imo Polar studios was the wrong choice to record.
  19. I remember the days when people complained because The BBC showed too much sport, they did so because it was cheap, only the cost of sending out a camera crew and "A" commentator. As for todays news about BBC salaries, fucking outrageous, part time "workers" paid tens of hundreds of £££, for what, talking..
  20. Well my LZ I is numbered, so I'm alright, luckily.
  21. Bummer, this years British Open starting this week is being shown live only on Sky sports, an overpriced subscription channel. The BBC will only have highlights..
  22. Common really, I very much doubt that. They struggled to sell the 30 000 numbered limited editions WORLDWIDE, so where is the market for fake big boxes.
  23. What is the point ? PG is two albums already, the sequencing is perfect as it is......(Where did this bold text come from)....
  24. Fair enough, though if the picture had shown Jimmy swigging on a bottle of beer I'd think nothing of it, JD is not meant to be swigged. I look at the picture and I'm reminded of someone I knew who would do that sort of thing, always had do more than everyone else, he never knew when to stop. Alcohol wrecked his liver, killed him at thirty five years old. The twenty second anniversary of his death was on the 11th last week. I used to call him a knob head to his face, often pulled him about his going to far, he would just laugh.... Apologies for being a bit morbid and sounding like an AA lecture.
  25. Maybe so, but Eelgrass pressed their silvers from a free download of the EV disc, EV had to pay for their recording. So in my book that makes Eelgrass a bunch of rip off merchants.
