  1. DVD or Blu-Ray

    That's the next go round I am sure. Followed a year or two after by 5.1 mixes on dvd/Blu-ray.
  2. I'm happy to get this on vinyl and hopefully an upgraded 5.1 on the Blu-ray. The 5.1 on the dvd was underwhelming.
  3. I'd be happy with any of All Of My Love long version, How The West Was Won on vinyl and any new live releases. The band doesn't owe me anything so anything I get is a bonus.
  4. Yardbirds '68 out Nov 5th

    Weird that the same manufacturing issue would impact both vinyl and cd's. Unless it is something to do with the artwork.
  5. Yardbirds '68 out Nov 5th

    Just received this email.... We are contacting you with regards to your Order #XXXXXXX from JimmyPage.com for a Yardbirds '68 - Double Vinyl edition. Due to matters beyond our control at the manufacturing plant, there is a small delay with the first delivery of Yardbirds 68 items to our UK warehouse. As a result, we hope to begin shipping items towards the end of next week, instead of today, as previously planned. Please accept our sincere apologies. We thank you for your custom and appreciate your patience while we resolve this matter as swiftly as possible. Customers who have pre-ordered items will, of course, be prioritised over any other sales we have subsequently received. We hope, having waited almost 50 years to hold this incredible album in your hands, that this additional delay will be completely worthwhile. Here are some exclusive images of the accompanying 48-page booklet, which is filled with photos, custom artwork and contributions from Jimmy Page, Jim McCarty, Chris Dreja and former editor-in-chief of MOJO and Q Magazine Phil Alexander, to whet your appetite until next week. Thank you once again for your patience. The JimmyPage.com Team
  6. I am very leery of this being self produced. His production to date has been bland, I can't imagine he's gotten any better.
  7. When The Levee Breaks - to show off his inventiveness with beats Good Times Bad Times - to highlight his bass drum technique In My Time of Dying or Achilles Last Stand - to show off his power
  8. They were on tour. They brought in Pino Palladino to play out that tour.
  9. I'd like to think that was true but I know Robert didn't necessarily think too highly of the pop oriented work JPJ had done prior to Led Zeppelin. The same Robert who years later would be the driving force between All of My Love. I doubt JPJ was the best at any instrument but he was very multi-faceted and could score strings. While never a driving force to the music LZ made, it was something that allowed a song like Kashmir take on added dimensions as he could think through music from multiple perspectives. Jimmy always seemed to know and understand the value of this, sometimes I wonder if it made Robert feel a touch inadequate as a songwriter, specially in the early days of the band. Jimmy and JPJ had a shared musical vocabulary from their session backgrounds that Robert wouldn't have.
  10. SAJ - Has it ever come up why Robert Plant was so against the medley and jam in Whole Lotta Love in LZ's latter years? Of all the excesses that a Led Zeppelin live could have, I never thought this was one of them. I never thought it grew stale unlike the D&C jam, nor did it go on too long and be the bloated excess that No Quarter, Moby Dick and WS/BM and noise solo often were. I thought it paid homage to their influences in a very joyful way and really highlighted what an unstoppable unit they were on stage.
  11. The Firm Thread

    I genuinely like the first Firm album. Initially it was a let down but then I viewed it as being a Honeydrippers type record but with originals. In that vein, the diminished prominence of Jimmy's guitar makes sense and his playing really quite subversive. I take the album for what it is and appreciate it for what it is.
  12. Jimmy Page & The Black Crowes

    As the release is a 10", my best guess is it would be either the four Led Zeppelin songs played at Jones Beach that are not on Live At The Greek or the for Black Crowes songs played. Most likely the former. The Led Zeppelin songs were; Wanton Song, Misty Mountain Hop, Hots On For Nowhere and Bring It On Home. The Black Crowes songs were; No Speak No Slave, Horsehead, Remedy and She Talks To Angels.There was also a cover of Muddy Water's I Can't Be Satisfied played.
  13. Song Remains the Same White Vinyl

    Really, first post and it's to sell something at a wildly inflated price. Welcome to the board.
  14. Do any bands rival Led Zeppelin

    The only thing that truly set Led Zeppelin apart from their peers was the songwriting. There are lots of bands with better musicians but they all lacked a leader like Jimmy Page. He had a vision for just about everything, from the songs and sound through to stage presentation. Having only a ten year career has been a huge help in maintaining the mystique. There are a few bands who's 10 year and/or 8 album output starts to rival Led Zeppelin. I'll rule out The Beatles as they stopped touring so early on in their career. But album wise, they rival Led Zeppelin. Same could be said for the Stones, The Who, Pink Floyd, The Doors. If Led Zeppelin had stayed together another five years and put out two albums on par with In Through The Out Door and had three tours of North America sounding like the Europe '80 tour, they lustre would have worn off. That White Summer solo would have fallen so flat in North America. The two hour sets would have destroyed some of the mythology.
