    New "Song Remains The Same" 2CD/4LP/3DVD Deluxe Set

    Amazed at all those that still are perfectly content to change CDs when you you could have the concert on -one- disc.

    1977 SHOWS RANKED INTO 3 CATEGORIES

    The '77 Jimmy solo transition that really sticks out for me is the end of "White Summer/Black Mountain Side" going into "Kashmir." Jimmy is sitting on a small stool while soloing, and for the last note of Black Mountain Side, Jimmy stands and kicks the stool back in one motion, and immediately launches into the opening chords of the epic "Kashmir," with the power, the full force, the "Hammer Of The Gods..." I made a mix tape in the 90's with the quick edit between the two songs. Happy Daze!

    1977 SHOWS RANKED INTO 3 CATEGORIES

    I was at the Houston and the Ft. Worth shows. Being there, I enjoyed them both immensely. A much better presentation overall, than the 'dress rehearsal' in Dallas on April 1st. The highlights of the Houston show for me, was TSRTS, Ten Years Gone, and the acoustic set. The highlights for the Ft. Worth show were IMTOD, ALS, and Kashmir. That Ft. Worth Kashmir was the high point of the '77 Tour for me, and, a high point of all my live Led Zeppelin personal experiences throughout their career.

    New "Song Remains The Same" 2CD/4LP/3DVD Deluxe Set

    Regarding ordering from Amazon and AutoRip and MP3 streaming options: As regards the Blu-Ray Audio Disc for TSRTS, there is no AutoRip or streaming offered. But, for the HTWWW Blu-ray Audio disc, I WAS able to AutoRip the tracks, ie download the MP3 tracks to my smartphone because of my purchase of HTWWW Blu-ray from Amazon. The 2018 CD for TSRTS does offer streaming, but does not offer AutoRip. These decisions are not made by Amazon, but the label delivering the product to Amazon. Anyone have any ideas for why TSRTS remaster is being treated differently by the label than the HTWWW remaster??

    PROOF THAT ANOTHER 1977 PRO-SHOT VIDEO EXISTS

    Well, on the final spin, there's more light reflecting from it, to show up on film. Just brings up the old feelings of disappointment that Zeppelin were unable to film (properly) any of the '75 or '77 shows.
  11. The 1977 opening with TSRTS was the most exciting opening number that the band used on a regular basis. I remember everyone in the Houston Summit standing for the beginning of the show, particularly everyone on the floor standing....on their chairs... That was quite a "forest of trees" for me to run through, to get to the center front of the arena, 4 rows back from the stage... The intensity of TSRTS, coming off the stage monitors, was like something I had never experienced before.

    Yes, and it's endless speculation, because you could apply that scenario to every other arena with luxury boxes at the time for any number of bands and concerts... BTY, that laser pyramid was difficult to film well at the time. Too bad, because it was very impressive in person, particularly from 10 rows back... The smoke looked as if it was captured or trapped in each side of the pyramid.
