  1. Can anyone post links for the pics or whatever evidence exists that has made people suggest one of these shows was professionally filmed? Thanks in advance.
  2. I know this is purely speculative, but here I go... A few days ago, a recently unearthed Deep Purple proshot footage from Lanover, Maryland 76 appeared on youtbe thanks to the offical Purple Channel. Many fans have stated that back in the day and at that time, pretty much all of the rock concerts by big bands were filmed at the venue. I think this might increase the chances of the Zepp Landover 77 show to have been filmed professionally. Of course, Grant could have denied any prmission, but who knows...This only strenthens the chances IMO.
  3. Gentlemen, start your engines!
  4. You want it? You have it
  5. Alain´s response:" it was on a table at Claude Nobs chalet in Montreux I snapped a quick pic. Didn't get to hear it "
  6. Cool! So this could be a potential release some day?
  7. This is very exciting news, though we need confirmation of course. Can we invite Sam to post and clarify?
  8. I only hope we get to hear Japan 1971 one day. And if it is just not possible, at least to know the reason why. And I olso hope Jimmy wakes up one day and thinks "oh, we never put out a full Earls Court set before".
  9. It has been reported today that, in the turmoil of the Stairway case, newly found early versions, multi tracks of the song were presented. I wonder if Jimmi had this material during the reissue campaign, and if other songs multi tracks have also appeared.
  10. I personally like to hope and trust. Who would have thought, for example, that The Doors had been taped in 66 at the London Fog? and the long rumoured last New Orleans tape? Now we know they exist. It may take decades to materialize, that is the major problem. The thing here, IMO, is why on Earth is Page so reluctant to release live stuff, being either audio or video. In any case, it is irritating, especially if you consider that back in the day, JP said that LZ was meant to be heard LIVE! I wish a lot of luck to those persons having archive stuff and trying tomake a deal with band`s estates.
  11. Well, I don´t think they are all ruish, but I do understand many fans´ dissapointment. Many, really many companion disc tracks are nearly identical to the original ones. I own no studio bootlegs, but from what I have read, many fans would have prefered already heard stuff in good or slighly sub-standard quality rather than these alternate takes in pristine quality. And with his idea, I think JP has betrayed himself. LZ was, to his own accounts, all about feel, improvisation and spontaneity. Therefore and IMHO, yes this was a missed opportunity.
  12. Made in Japan is "liver" than most other live albums. Asolutely no overdus, and comes mostly from one show.
  13. WTF????? So there is still plenty of stuff in the vault that was not included in the reissues this year. This is highly iritating.
  14. It´s being posted on the official facebook page.
