  1. That's what I suspected. Wondering if the book in the SD is hardcover or a "paperback" like BBC sessions...
  2. Is that the vinyl set or the super deluxe?
  3. Misery loves company, eh? *Perhaps* once it's actually shipped it will update to arriving on release date...but not really planning on it. .
  4. I have just the Bluray audio coming for now...but at the moment Amazon says I won't get it until Wednesday, and yes I have Prime. If I were to order the super deluxe today, it would arrive Tuesday. Weird, right? In September, I got Gilmour's Live in Pompeii the day before it was released...

    BBC sessions deluxe out September 16!!!!

    Now that I have the set, finally...this box set is from the BBC...it's copyright 2016 BBC, plus Atlantic Recording Company. Maybe that has something to do with it.

    BBC Sessions download incomplete

    Thanks as always, sir.
  7. Finally added the Complete BBC Sessions to my collection today. The HD download goes to exactly (or nearly exactly) 1 GB and then acts as if it's done. Can't extract anything. Unzipper says "the archive is either in unknown format or damaged". Surely it needs to be a lot bigger than 1 GB. I've already notified Warner Music, but asking here if this is a known issue. Search revealed nothing, however.

    Jimmy Page interviews,2018.

    Let the guessing begin. Could it be Earl's Court? Certainly a strong candidate.

    New Mystery Soundboard?

    The '75 tour is my favorite, and no doubt the high quality soundboard recordings are a big part of that. So, first of all, I'm thrilled to have this. But, to me, it's not the best of the tour. The performance is excellent, the recording is clear and strong, as usual for this tour, but I would still put the February NYC/Nassau shows ahead of this and also the March Ft. Worth/Dallas shows. This is easily better than the plodding March 17 show and the Vancouver shows. While everything is really good, there wasn't anything that really blew me away. But there are some "bonuses" along the way: The little hint of "White Summer" just before "Kashmir." Wonder if this is when he first had the idea of sliding into "Kashmir" from "WS/BMS". Just as Plant is announcing the addition of "Since I've Been Loving You", Jimmy plays a little "Lemon Song" riff. Love that you can hear him ask what the change in the program is. "I Shot the Sheriff" as part of "Dazed and Confused"? Blows my mind. The one and only time...right? Toward the end of "Whole Lotta Love", Jimmy employs some groovy licks worthy of Motown. The funk is in the house! On "Communication Breakdown," Page uses a tone I have never heard him use before. Is that pedal action? I'm not a guitar head...a tribute to Hendrix perhaps? It made me think of "Crosstown Traffic" for some reason. And...a stellar "No Quarter" and rare SIBLY are always welcome.

    New Mystery Soundboard?

    It felt like we were due for a new SB to surface so I have been checking in regularly to catch the chatter. I'll pretty much take any soundboard, but I am partial to the '75 to and I'm stoked to get the 3-21-75 show. I have an audience of it, but except for the Millard shows don't really bother with any of them. My ears just can't handle most of them.

    The Apparent Ignorance of Later Shows

    elKZacha, is "indifference" the word you want, rather than ignorance? I am partial to the '75 tour because of the superior quality of the soundboards, probably, and I just dig the setlist. Earls Court, Dallas, Long Beach, Forum, the New York gigs....spectacular. Especially with '77, the size of the gigs/venues and the length of the set got in the way. Sure, they gave the punters their moneys worth...but there's only so much the human ear can take, right? Clearly the Tour Over Europe shows were designed to get back to basics, as it were, and reestablish the band on a firm footing. One could look at Zurich, Frankfurt, and some scattered gems at other shows with hope for a better future. Pointless to speculate what the band would have sounded like on a U.S. tour in '80 and beyond. There's a quote from Robert circa '77, I think, where in reference to Stairway, he says "there's only so many times you can sing it and mean it" (if I remember right). It can't be easy doing the same thing all the time...or as Plant said at that last EC show, "And sometimes if you play city after city after city, night after night after night, you don't feel as loose and as easy as we feel."

    What live song do you skip or endure?

    Always skip: Trampled Underfoot Celebration Day Hot Dog Moby Dick (but I will listen to the banter, generally) '77 noise solo Endure: Rock and Roll The sluggish renditions of Kashmir (some here and there from '77)
