  1. I was going through the EC stuff and just happened to notice Bonzo here. It's almost as bad as San Diego 77. I'm preety sure they almost come to a complete stop a couple times.
  2. Do you guys think the o2 Kashmir was the best ever? Or was it the 1979 Knebworth?
  3. 75 new favorite year

    Anyone else finding 1975 a new favorite year? I'm listening to Seattle 17 and enjoy the Dazed very much. Last year till O2 they played Dazed. First year for Kashmir. Almost always fresh. Trampled Underfoot and In My Time Of Dying. Great blues. If I had a "dream year" with nothing but soundboards, thiis would now be my choice. Even with the new soundboards recently it needs a new look. It's an under-rated year. Thanks.
  4. Stairway or Kashmir

    Which do you think is better Stairway to Heaven or Kashmir?
  5. Celebration Day has been nominated for a Grammy Award in the 'Best Rock Album' category, and "Kashmir" for 'Best Rock Performance': http://www.grammy.com/nominees?genre=31
  6. Led Zeppelin's Finest Moment

    What do you guy think is Led Zeppelin's finest moment. For me it's this:
  7. Deconstructing Kashmir

    Over time I have become increasingly convinced that Kashmir is one of the great masterworks of Western Civilization. Yes I am a proud Zeppelin fanboy given to flights of hyperbole. Getting to know this great song is like peeling back the layers of an onion. One consistent thread for me with this song is the deft, subtle nature of the arrangement for strings and horns. The more I listen to it, the more maddening it is to precisely separate which instruments are weaving in and around the drums, bass, and guitar. Being a big Beatles fan, I had an epiphany a few years ago when I realized that one of the crucial aspects of their creative hot streak between June 1967 and November 1968 was the marrying of rock music and instruments (oboe, clarinet, etc.) most commonly associated with orchestras. The epiphany came when I realized that someone (George Martin?) had to physically hand-write the scores that would then be played by other musicians. A bold blend of rock and classical instrumentation. But someone had to write the scores. If this individual was Martin (as I doubt any Beatle had the ability to write musical notation at that time, though I could be wrong), then his stature grows even larger to me as a presence with this band. Which leads me to Kashmir. Searching the archives here for an answer to who wrote the sheet music to Kashmir, I came across this entry a few years back: “12.) Regarding Kashmir and the ghost track of the orchestra parts. Has there been any information regarding the names of the session players for the left over ghost track that remains? Is the handwritten sheet music put together by JPJ that was dated November 10, 1976 been located since it’s sale? Any idea who Chris was who drew up that sheet music?” I was unable to find an answer to this individual’s question. So, I wonder: 1) what is this “ghost track,” exactly? 2) was the sheet music actually written by Jones? 3) who sold the sheet music, and to whom? 4) who is Chris? Hey Steve A. Jones, can you help a brother out? Anyway, a great use of strings. Bonham and Plant always blow me away. While on the topic of the instruments involved in the recording of this track, I wanted to pose a second question. Is it a mellotron that is heard in the left channel between 3:25 and 4:21? And also in the right channel from 6:43 to the end? To me, Jones’ parts here are crucial to the middle-eastern feel of the song. While on the topic of the mellotron, I found this recently. It contains photos of Jones’ mellotrons: http://www.reocities.../mellotron.html I searched the archives and found that this page has not yet been posted or referred to. Third and final question. Is the distortion on Bonham’s single-stroke snare roll at 8:07 the same synth that was used on his timpani/kettle drums on the 1977 tour? If no one can help with the orchestral instrumentation, I might send Kashmir on disc to my uncle, who was Costa Rica’s symphony conductor in the seventies. I am sure he can sniff out what is buried in there. Thanks for the help. I love Kashmir. One of my favorite songs by any band. In The Light since 1972. Trampled Under Foot.

  8. Stellar review of Led Zeppelin's Celebration Day by guitarist and recording artist Brian Robbins, featured at Jambands.com: http://www.jambands.com/features/2012/11/30/led-zeppelin-s-celebration-day-why-the-duck-face-matters?1
  9. Kashmir Question

    Does anyone know how to play the riff that replaces the last chord in the main riff of Kashmir when played live. The riff was played by the string section in the studio recording, and Page usually starts doing in the second verse. it can be heard at around 1:24 in this video: I would like to know how to play it, it sounds cool.
  10. Kashmir from Celebration Day on BBC Radio 2

    Just saw a tweet put out by @ledzeppelin, a few minutes too late! ledzeppelin: Hear an exclusive first play of 'Kashmir' from 'Celebration Day' on BBC Radio 2 just after 11 am http://t.co/Idun57Ej @bbcradio2 #ledzep Did anyone by any chance record it? Cheers
  11. Jimmy's Kashmir Les Paul

    Searched around but couldn't find anything on this. Apologies if it's in the wrong forum, I figured this to be a both live/general gear thing. Just watching Kashmir and I noticed some of the bridge elements on Jimmy's LP he used in 2007. Any idea on what's actually going on here? I managed to capture the frame when the light shines right on it. It looks like the 2nd string (high A in this case) extends past the tailpiece and ends up going into some lock or nob of some sort in the body.
  12. Kashmir

    Hi, i recorded song inspired by Kashmir:
  13. I've been both a Zeppelin and Yes fan for the majority of my musical awareness - Yes particularly for Chris Squire's bass playing. Not to slight JPJ at all - he is truly a master at what he does. But I think most people would agree that Jones' and Squire's styles are completely different. Recently while listening to Physical Graffiti, I noticed how much air and open space that 'Kashmir' let in with JPJ's bassline being relatively subdued and quiet in the mix. I got to thinking about how Chris Squire would probably have loved to do his thing on this song since it affords plenty of room for his melodic style. So just for the hell of it (AND the fun of it), I record a bassline in the style of Squire along side the original Kashmir track. I'm certainly not claiming that this is an "improvement" - it's merely my impression based on the love and appreciation of both Zep & Squire, and entertaining myself with the notion of this possible meeting of greats. Page, Squire, and Alan White did jam together briefly as the XYZ project. Makes you wonder if they did actually jam some "familiar riffs" upon meeting. Here's my take on what that might have sounded like: Led Zeppelin - 'Chrismir' Technical notes: The main bassline is played on a 1968 Rickenbacker 4001 The Mutron Fuzz effect and the plucked harmonic parts are played on a 1979 Rick 4001SLH
