    Nice job. Thanks for doing this.

    Luis Rey 50th Anniversary Book

    Looks like Luis Rey has released an updated version of his classic book for the band's 50th anniversary. Apparently it is only available from this one seller, and there are only a limited number remaining: https://www.ebay.com/usr/abbotsfordbooks Please note, I am not affiliated with the seller or Luis, just thought some people here might like a chance to pick up a copy of his guide.
  3. According to Google Translate: Based on that, it seems like the multitrack recording that has been around for quite a while. Looks like they just repackaged it in a jewel case and used images from the recent soundboard release of the show.
  4. 9/29/1971 soundboard. Can't stop listening to this show. Still working on the remaster:

    I'm really looking forward to this book. I know Mike Tremaglio, Dave's co-author, personally. Perhaps unsurprisingly, we met over a box of Zep bootlegs at a record convention about 20 years ago. At the time I thought I knew a lot about the band, but Mike's level of knowledge was encyclopedic, and it's grown by leaps and bounds since then with the endless research he's done into their career. I ordered my copy a couple of days ago through a third party seller on Amazon. It was around $45 total, including shipping within the US. I'm still waiting for it to arrive. The book is a hardcover and has around 550 pages, so I'm not surprised it is expensive to ship it from England to the States, but you should be able to get a copy for much less from the US version of Amazon. For those who are interested, here is a link to Dave's site with some more info about the book: http://www.tightbutloose.co.uk/tbl-news/evenings-with-led-zeppelin-feedback-lz-news-tbl-archive-led-zeppelin-iii-and-lyceum-1969-coda-london-gig-national-album-day-danny-baker-dl-diary-blog-update/
  6. I've been working on this show since it came out. The problem is I keep listening to it instead of remastering it because the performance is so good. I used to favor the 1973 shows in Germany over the 1971 ones in Japan. However, I need to rethink that opinion based on this soundboard. Also, I'm not sure if it was brought up before, but what happens around the 45 second mark? It sounds like a really poorly done overdub, but I'm guessing it's a bum note from one of the guys.
  7. My remaster of June 7, 1977. Listen to Bonzo starting at the 6:40 mark. Killer stuff.
  8. According to Collectors Music Review, Eelgrass is already out with their version. Wow, that was quick. https://www.collectorsmusicreviews.com/empress-valley-label/led-zeppelins-how-the-east-was-won-on-empress-valley-and-eelgrass/

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    Interesting that the band does not consider Sept 7, 1968 to be their beginning.

    What Are You Listening To At This Moment?

    And continuing on a blues theme, the Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio live at KEXP. My favorite comment about this on YouTube is "I wish my wife looked at me the same way that drummer looks at the organist..." No doubt if he could play keyboards as well as Delvon, she would

    What Are You Listening To At This Moment?

    Gary Clark, Jr. "When My Train Pulls In". The solo in the second half of this song just kills.

    6/3/73 - Winston or JEMS?

    It's a group of people who recorded and have released an insanely large number of shows from a variety of groups. I believe the term JEMS is an acronym of their first letters of their first names, and the person who was the "J" passed away a couple of years ago. Here's some info about him: https://www.spl-messages.net/topic/sad-news-the-light-on-the-j-in-jems-has-gone-out
  13. I was more than a little bummed that the full soundboard won't be coming out all at once. Then I remembered that the soundboard isn't the thing I really want from this show. What I really, really, really want is a lower gen version of the mixed multi-tracks. The best version I've heard so far sounds like it's four or five generations removed from the master. Even then, with a couple of hours work it sounds pretty good. Please Jimmy, release whatever you have from this show. It's too good to be sitting on a shelf somewhere.
  14. I agree that it's got to be difficult to record a show that has such long songs in it, but why leave out Black Dog? It's early in the show, well before any tape change would have been an issue, and it sits between SIBLY and Dazed, which were both recorded. There are also other soundboards from earlier in 1971 that include it (e.g. Orlando.) Based on that, leaving it out seems more like a money grab than the result of some technical problem.
  15. It is confusing. And how do they have SIBLY and Dazed but not Black Dog? I get the feeling all the missing stuff will show up on some future "The Complete How The East Was Won" release for the low price of one mortgage payment.
