    I'm sure muscle memory had alot to do with his chording. It's a shame this New York run isn't as well recorded as the Inglewood shows. Considering it was also a six-day run in a major venue.

    Which shows do we know were multitracked?

    Thank you for mentioning Tampa and Oakland. I can't imagine any reason why they'd choose not to close circuit those shows. If you look at audience footage from Oakland, you can barely see the band from the nosebleeds.

    Trentham Gardens '73 was Multi Tracked

    So was 1/22 Southhampton the only show from this tour that was multi-tracked? Is that a definite?

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks 6/23 is overrated. I feel as though if Keith Moon hadn't made a cameo and it wasn't a Millard recording people wouldn't give it as much attention as they do. Still has some great moments though.. I share your opinion on 6/26 as well. An overall solid show and I'd much rather hear "It'll Be Me" as an encore than that "Whole Lotta Love"/"Rock And Roll" medley they were doing.

    Nitpicking Page 1973

    According to Led Zeppelin Database the following shows have mellotron solos: 10/5/72 (Nagoya), 11/30/72 (Newcastle-upon-Tyne), 12/12/72 (Cardiff), 12/22/72 (London), 1/22/73 (Southhampton). It lists both the 6/3 and 7/29 versions of "Thank You" as having organ solos. I was just curious though. Being random.

    I don't know why but that mellotron solo reminded me of the Beatles. Any idea why Jones starting playing mellotron solos instead of organ solos?

    I believe gibsonfan159 makes it clear in the first post that he wanted to nitpick an off night from '73 for contrast. Or at least that's how I understood it. I'm not sure if there's a better example of a subpar show from this year.

    Man this makes me wish you would've nitpicked the acoustic sets and solos from the LA shows too πŸ˜… ha ha just messing with you. I'm glad you went back to '77 though. Do you think it's fair to say that this show (while not great) gets a somewhat undeserved reputation for being worse than it actually was?

    What's the worst live performance of a song?

    Which one do you consider sub par? The 27th?

    Yeah I've often wondered about that. I guess it would've been awkward moving the pedals back and forth as he moves between keyboards during the same song. I suppose that would mean he probably doesn't use pedals during STH after he steps away from the mellotron.. I know he moves to the piano during the guitar solo on at least some of the versions of STH this tour (inc. I believe all of the LA shows).

    Does Jones use bass pedals during the sections (piano solo/blues jam/etc.) of No Quarter when he's on the grand piano? That might sound like a silly question but I'm not a musician and I don't have the greatest of bootleg ears πŸ˜…

    I'm curious to know what letter grade you'd give each of these two shows overall.. I know there's people out there who say that if we had a better quality recording of 6/22 it'd be the best of the run. But after reading your song by song take I'm not so sure anymore. That version of Achilles is brutal though.. in the best way possible. Even with the guitar swap.

    Los Angeles Photos - Zep and Others

    Wow those photos are legit!! And being from that neck of the woods (born in Disneyheim, raised in Buena Park) I enjoyed reading the captions that went along with them. Hearing places like Knott's Berry Farm mentioned.. takes me back ☺️ Looking at some of those photos in the gallery (like some of the Elton John or the Rolling Stones photos) makes me glad Led Zeppelin didn't have outlandish costumes or silly stage props 🀣. And I mean no disrepect to Elton or the Stones. They all know how to rock.

    Funny LZ pictures.

  15. These "nitpicking Page" episodes make for some very enjoyable reading. I hope there's more (if you have the time and inclination).

    top 5 favorite No Quarters

    I don't have a top 5 but I believe 6/26/77 deserves an honorable mention. I'm not sure how I feel about Jones making an early switch back to the electric piano.. but I don't think it detracts at all from the enjoyment of the piece. You know a half hour song is good when it doesn't feel like a half hour.

    World War III on the brink?

    I totally agree with you. But the US government shouldn't get all of the blame for not coming down hard on Israel. Millions of Americans belong to Evangelical/Born-Again/Calvary Chapel type churches that preach we have a 'sacred duty' to give our lives and money keeping Israel propped up. It doesn't seem to bother them that our one-sided approach to Israel antagonizes the gazillions of Muslims in the world. Aren't they human beings as well? Quite frankly, I don't believe it's our business what happens to Israel. We have enough problems with our own country as it is. If the Jewish really want to make that part of the world thier modern day homeland, then they should do it themselves. They've survived as a distinct group for centuries without America's help (despite repeated persecutions), and I'm sure they can continue to survive without it. That's the kind of people they are - smart and resilient. America itself should be our governments first priority. There's tens of millions of Americans unemployed/underemployed/on food stamps/on welfare, etc. And yet we somehow have billions of dollars to throw at Israel.

    World War III on the brink?

    Yea out here in California it's similar (except of course it's LA that pretty much decides it). It would be nice to have an alternative party that actually stands some chance of winning for once. You look at the ballot in some foreign countries and they actually have more than just two choices.
  19. Daeron


    That was awesome. March 8th huh? I bet you they were all revved up after having to wait three more months after the show got postponed.

    World War III on the brink?

    I wasn't suggesting "living in fear" at all. In fact I believe everybody should live as optimistically as possible. You should always live your life expecting to reach 90 (as somebody once told me). But, you should always be prepared or have some kind of an emergency plan. Even something as simple as buying extra canned food can be a plan. And since you mentioned "the Gulf War, the Y2K scare, 9/11, etc."; may I remind you that before WWII, there was a lot of scenarios leading up to it as well. Like: the Nazis taking over Germany, the Japanese expanding in Asia, an economic depression in the late 20s/30s, etc. The point I'm trying to make, is that major wars don't just start. They're the result of a gradual process. A bunch of 'small' problems, gradually building up to the breaking point. And you can see that going on in the world around us.

    World War III on the brink?

    I agree that the Iranian government definately needs reform; but I don't think it's America's business one way or the other. America's version of 'democracy' doesn't work in every country or culture. If some countries vote for maniacal leaders, let them deal with it. It's thier problem, not ours. And I don't think American has a right to prevent other countries from having nuclear weapons. Who gave America the right to have them? (Or any other country for that matter.)

    World War III on the brink?

    Ehh, your probably right. Now that I reread it, I guess I was broadbrushing a bit. My apologies!

    World War III on the brink?

    I'm sorry, I think you misunderstand. I'm not implying by any means that WWIII is right around the corner. But I think with the events of the past couple decades, I feel as though everything is coming together (if that makes sense). With the economic decay of America, and the mess in the Middle-east (which seems to keep getting worse and worse); and the Chinese and Koreans and all that etc.; I think everything is in a downward spiral. If WWIII is gonna happen, I think it will most likely be within a decade or two. If I gave the impression that I felt it was immediate, I do apologize.

    World War III on the brink?

    I totally agree with you on that one. Off the top of my head, I can think of two Islamic countries that America openly disapproves of: Iran and Syria. And you would have to be blind not to see how much the US government wants both those countries 'reformed'. An attack against both those nations (especially Iran) could easily lead to World War III. It's impossible to play the 'world's policeman', without it coming back to haunt you.

    World War III on the brink?

    I'm surprised so many people voted 'no'. With all the trouble brewing in the world (and not just in the Mid-East); it's pretty sad that so many people just turn a blind eye and think it will all just go away.
