    Oh without a doubt. I don't know if you've ever attempted to listen to the (well-developed-bootleg-ears-required) opening night at Chicago but his vocals on Kashmir are very powerful. Although I never liked that harmonizer he uses when he sings In My Time Of Dying.
  2. I don't often chime in, but thanks for posting this. Definitely an amusing read 😀

    I like how they played 2 encores at Pontiac (and most of the other shows on the first leg of the tour). I'm not a fan of how most of the shows on the 2nd and 3rd legs got Rock and Roll preceded by a truncated version of Whole Lotta Love.

    When you say the Pontiac version of No Quarter is "easily one of the best versions", do you mean one of the best versions for '77 or one of the best versions '73-'79?

    Ha ha of course 😅

    Slightly off topic but would it be reasonable to think an audience member in 1977 would have anything better to film these shows with besides an 8mm? I l really dig the 8mm footage on Youtube but as others have noted you can barely see the lasers.

    Led Zeppelin to do a Live streaming service

    If they really are gonna stream live material I hope there's gonna be some sort of schedule/itinerary posted in advanced so we don't miss shows we might be particularly interested in.

    I've very much enjoyed reading this thread. Any chance you might do a best of New York when you have the time?

    Favorite/Best Achilles Last Stand?

    Seriously man. That version is hella tight. Even with the broken string/guitar swap. I love that ominous intro.. plus we got 8mm footage of it on Youtube.
  10. How do you think it should have been credited? "Trad. arr/adap. by Page and Plant" ? I was also curious about your opinion on IMTOD. I think when Page recorded it with the Black Crowes (correct me if I'm wrong) it got credited as "Trad. arr/adap. by Bonham, Jones, Page and Plant". Great post by the way. The Led Zeppelin 'stole' "everything they played" canard is absurd. Watch a Led Zeppelin video on Youtube and the comments are full of ridiculous accusations.

    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 😅 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 😅

    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.

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