  1. Pontiac 1977 - New Photos

    A set of new photos from a fan at the Pontiac Silverdome April 30, 1977 (most of these shared here for the first time). There's some interesting pics, including an awesome rear-stage photograph of the whole stadium before the show and a couple of teasers showing the video camera in front of the stage.... http://www.ledzeppelin.com/show/april-30-1977
  2. First off, I just want to say thank you to everyone that has downloaded or listened to the new Listen to This Erik 6/21/77 show and submitted their thoughts on the various websites. I am completely blown away and incredibly stoked that so many people are enjoying the show. I wanted to provide a little context into how this whole recording came to be released now. This recording has been very very special to me for many years. Luckily, after listening to the original for a few months, I transferred the recording to a second tape and never played the original again until it was played by JEMS to transfer. I also made a couple of copies for my brother Dave and a couple of other friends. I did transfer it to iTunes and made a few cd’s for friends but there were probably only a dozen or so ever made. Which leads to the inevitable next question.......WHY THE HELL DID YOU WAIT SO LONG TO GET THIS OUT? By this time I had a copy (e-bay purchase) of Listen To This Eddie and knew how highly regarded it was. I just didn’t realize the demand for multiple copies of the same show. I plead ignorance on count number one! I loved the music on LTTE and especially enjoyed listening to that parts that I didn’t catch on my recording but honestly when I wanted to relive MY concert experience, I listened to my own recording. LTTE just didn’t have the same feel for ME! Please Please don’t take this as a knock on LTTE but when I hear my recording to this day (and especially with the new version) I get absolute full body chills remembering that show. I’ve never gotten that from Eddie. My brother (and helper in the taping) is the same way. I was listening to this show 30 minutes after it ended and have since heard it at least a couple of thousand times. For me, it’s a very vivid memory of what is unquestionably the greatest concert that I was ever lucky enough to be at. It has been nothing short of amazing for me to hear the new restored and mastered version of the show. I have listened to virtually nothing else since I first got a copy on Halloween. Oh yeah, back to the subject... about 4 years ago I was trying to figure out a way to post the show but I unfortunately was technically challenged back then and wasn’t sure how to. I actually threw a comment on the Led Zeppelin forum in 2013 that was recently discovered where I mentioned that I had taped the show. I was curious if there would be any response and when there wasn’t I figured there wasn’t a big demand. Mistake number 2 for those keeping score! With the 40th anniversary of the show this past year, I decided to make a YouTube video with my recording as a soundtrack and just post it on my YouTube channel. I have about 240 concert videos on there and figured this would be kind of cool to direct my friends to if wanted to hear the show. The only digital copy that I had was from my iTunes playlist which included the wrong Moby Dick. I just pasted it together and threw it on without even listening to it. I was horrified when the wrong MD was pointed out. This is is getting really long, so long story short- it was spotted by Zephead and shared on the LZ Forum. I was urged to have it copied correctly. Luckily through an amazing friend (Thank You BW!) I was able to connect with the JEMS crew. They did an absolutely amazing job with 40 year old, 120 minute cassettes. Throw in batteries near death at end of the show, etc. They were great to work with and allowed me to be involved and give input along the way. I saw a comment that said they would trust JEMS with this type of mastering job more than they would the Smithsonian. I’ve never had the Smithsonian restore my tape But... JEMS IS THE BEST! Again sooooo stoked people are enjoying this! Peace, GB P.S. For anyone still wondering why Listen to This Erik is called that, it is in tribute to my lifelong friend Erik H. He had an amazing time at the show from what people have told him. Unfortunately, his own memory is completely blank. The moral of the story children is- don’t mix chemicals (lots) and really good Thai weed at 6 p.m. the day of a Led Zeppelin show or you’ll end up like Erik- who became a real rocket scientist! I’m NOT kidding! P.P.S.- I warned you in the title it was looooong story.
  3. How much of that 2nd source exists? Of course, the Millard recording is glorious and one of the All-Time Greats, but this 2nd source isn't bad. Would love to hear it if more exists. Very interested in finding it if anyone knows.
  4. Here is the Listen to This Erik tape version. Here is one of 2 versions that I have posted on my youtube channel- gbauer10. This version is the restored, mastered version that is presented just as it is on tape. The only cuts are from tape flips and f'ups. I hope you enjoy this new version of an epic concert. While you're checking out the video also be sure to check out some of my other video's as well. There are a ton of concert video videos (mostly shot up close in the pit. They Include Springsteen, Pearl Jam, U2, Dead and Company at the Fillmore, Neil Young, etc. There's also an incredible version of Achilles Last Stand by Temple of the Dog. Please check it out and subscribe.
  5. Hi All, I have been searching for years to find a picture of John Bonham's 1977 drum kit (Ludwig Stainless Steel) taken from behind the kit, maybe if one were standing near the gong and taking the picture toward the audience. There is a very similar picture in the Good Times Bad Times Zeppelin book of a shot like this, but of his Amber Vistilite Kit. I will try and find the image and post. The closest I found have found is the image below, however I am looking for one without John, and possibly a higher res? Thanks all! Mike
  6. So I've started to collect as much of Zeppelin's performances recorded on video as I can, Assemblage I and II, DVD, TSRTS(and the GREAT fanedit In for a Quick Garden) and now I've come across the Seattle show and I'm confused... I mean 1977 was a bit of a rollercoaster year for Zep, we have shows like the LA Forum which is among the best they've done and then there's Tempe and Oakland too... So my question is about Seattle, I can't figure out what's wrong with it, I mean Jimmy is not at his best but it feels like it's more of a mixing fault or something, it just sounds dry and... I don't know, wrong I guess? I want to give it another shot so what releases would you recommend? Or is it just a mediocre performance? Haha
  7. Hello all. I was wondering if anyone had specific I.D. information about the Eddie Edwards source which was originally combined with mike millard's tapes. the most information i've been able to garner about it is the following: ""Eddie Edwards "Trampled Underfoot" 1st Gen cassette of vinyl transfer"". Now, granted, I have yet to scour the earth for it, but I have put quite a spot of time into my search now and so far as I can tell, either this source completely no longer exists, or I'm doing a really bad job of dissecting the semantics of that sentence, which came from a description in the Winston Remasters. I have also found evidence that there was a release of... trying to remember... i think it may have even just been "For BadgeHolders Only", but was released on a label called Balboa, and is apparently the only non-Millard complete source without unforgivable issues such as single-channel dropouts, etc. I thought perhaps this could possibly be the "vinyl transfer" mentioned in the Winston Remasters, but have not found a way to confirm that, nor have I been able to find this Balboa release in the first place. Bottom Line: Does anyone have any information about that vinyl transfer mentioned in the Winston Remasters, or even just have any knowledge to add concerning lowest-gen-as-possible Eddie Edwards source? Because this is literally everything I got, and it ain't much. The winston remaster wasn't done that long ago, right? So it's unlikely we're talking about something that time has swallowed forever, one would think. Anyway thank you in advance; I figured if I was going to ask the question anywhere, it should be here.
  8. Favorite/Best Achilles Last Stand?

    So I've been going back listening to a lot of later Zep shows and with that of course comes the VERY good set lists of 77-80 and I was wondering what live rendition of ALS y'all prefer! Been watching a lot of 1979/08/04 lately and I quite like that, 1977/06/21 comes to mind as well, what do you guys think?
  9. As anybody who's heard recordings of the 1977 tour knows, John Paul Jones (aided on some dates by John Bonham) sang the Sandy Denny sections of "Battle Of Evermore". It seems to be a somewhat controversial choice... What are yer thoughts on Jonesy's vocals? Like 'em, hate 'em, indifferent? They shoulda got somebody else? (an option I've heard a few times over the years- but in that case, who?) Cast yer vote... (FWIW I seem to flip between 'I can live with them' and 'they shoulda got somebody else'...I'm not sure anybody could do justice to SD's original vocal on the studio track, but any port in a storm, as they say)
  10. Atlanta 1977

    Hey guys, i think Atlanta 1977 may be one of the best ever 1977 shows (at least caught on tape). Shame the quality is so awful, but the versions of No Quarter (one of my favourite ever versions), Achilles Last Stand and Stairway To Heaven are among some of the best on the tour! Notice how wonderful is Plant's intro to Ten Years Gone, pontuacted by so melancholic guitar chords by Page.."it's always best to be in love with everybody, but this is about the first time you ever knew it would happen to you"..it makes me cry, really! What do you guys think about? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxO3GFqIqCE
  11. Hi guys, I'd like to make my own poster of almighty Jimmy. I'm looking for two particular pictures (from 1977 i guess). In order to print it right, i need the bigger high resolution available out there. Does any of you have something like that ? I think the first picture was printed in a lot of magazines back then so may be there is a high res. scan available somewhere. Also for the story, i'd like to know from which shows those 2 pics were taken (by who ? may be there is a book i can buy with this pic, i don't know...) Thx a lot for your help ! Cheers from France. ... I tried to write my best english here
  12. I've found a - supposedly - rare audio interview on YouTube. I've thought I make a playlist of that and share with you, but I must say, unfortunately the quality is quite bad. http://www.youtube.c...67C1DE9E0D2D181 (If someone has already sheared this before me, sorry and please delete this topic.)
