    Yeah, but thinking of those as a "block".... a. - they don't need the cash, but then, who cares if extra cash might flow? Not a motivation, but not a block. b. - Maybe this, maybe not. Maybe Plant won't mind too much as he is well comfortable with his place now, and won't mind a well put together release that shows him then. Past Plant is not a threat to now Plant. He may not really care and go along with it. Happy to facilitate a JP that is more stuck in the past.

    Some of the soundboards surely could be turned into pretty damn good live releases. Snowblind, The Dancing Avocado, Earls Court, a '77 gig or two, possibly Copenhagen? If such was JP's desire, we could have a great year coming.
  3. Yesterday I put 21/05/77 Houston on. Robert is a bit flat, while Page seems mostly disinterested. Must've been a heavy night the previous night. Bonham is really good, but maybe he just sounds better with Page/Plant seeming to give no fucks? not sure. Only made it to start of Stairway and didn't get back to it. Today while waiting for my lift I had time for 1 song. OTHAFA from Snowblind - first night. Jeeeez that is a cracker!!!!! Will have to break that out in full soon.
  4. New Soundboard Source for Osaka '71??

    I can help.... PM inbound.
  5. Montreal 2/6/75 Underrated?

    Can someone PM me a link to the Feb 6 show? Pretty please?
  6. Why In Through The Out Door is a GREAT album

    Agree. But I must admit, the original vs. "The Epic" - the original mix was a bit shit. Too blurred. Can't hear a word Robert says. And he deserves to be equal or even a bit more up front that the drums and wall of keys. The Epic is so much better to listen to for this reason. Live it could have well been a MONSTER.
  7. Random Thoughts v.3

    Yeah, that's legit. It's a tough one. You could say it is not the Governments role to curb tobacco use as well. When the social and economic cost impacts the Governments ability to steer the country on the path they choose (were elected to carry out) or when the results of no regulation is the emergence of a major health crisis (not a crisis yet, but it is a bit shit and getting worse) then you can easily argue they are within rights to act - and probably should act. But again, I don't really like a nanny state culture. It's a tough one. Need to do something.
  8. Random Thoughts v.3

    It is not only the US. It is a trend in the West. Why? Because sugar and sodium (salt) are cheap and easy to add to every damn product on the supermarket shelf. Unless you are buying fruit and veg, basically every other item is choc full of those 2 ingredients. Profit and the almighty dollar - as usual - overrides any and all other considerations. You know, like is this actually good for society? board room erupts with laughter, moves on. It's the biggest problem with not regulating some areas of the free market. Here there has been debate about introducing a sugar tax similar to tobacco taxes (ciggy's here are now worth their weight in gold as a deterrent) While I hate the thought of a "nanny state" - while the obesity and related heath problems issue is growing at this alarming rate, I am happy for Govt's to do whatever to reign in that trend.

    Booked mine this morning 9 on the dot. Incredibly excited.
  10. Best Led Zeppelin concert recording

    Winston did 929. Arigatou Osaka. From the notes contained within it.... Remaster Notes: Hardest show I ever worked on. Used the best possible audio for each song. Each of the Stage/SBD sources ran at different Sound/Pitch/Speed. It was like putting a jigsaw puzzle together, a BIG THANK YOU to Blackmikito, He really helped me get it right! Sound: This is more of a Restoration than a Remaster, So I decided to try and give each source tonal balance and clarity. It seemed the less I did the better it sounded. If your looking for a beefed up in your face version this isn't it, I would recommend Wendy's Fatally Wanderer instead. Also would like to thank Pernod for his help early on. So.. Is it Perfect? NOPE. But its the best I could do.
  11. Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience (Tour)

    MAAAAAAD. Will be hitting the Brisbane one and possibly the Sydney one. Small venues, 1500 standing in Bris (Tivoli) and 2000 in Sydney. Can't wait!!!!!
  12. ....and is now down due to copyright infringement. says INA - Institut National de l'Audiovisuel took it down. Maybe they have the footage. LOL! I have this boot but have not listened yet. Just took a peek. Holy shit, it's proper brilliant quality! I'll have to find the time now.
  13. Why In Through The Out Door is a GREAT album

    The closest to "sad" is SIBLY from TSRTS. Hard to imagine a more emotive song when your in the right frame of mind and pump it into your ears. The intro has such angry, defiant angst that drops so beautifully into that almost sad, melancholic opening. By the time Robert chimes in, I feel like I am at least 4 major turns and drops into a fantastic rollercoaster. It's just unreal. The angst reminds me of the start of the second solo break in Comfortably Numb. It always hits hard with how clear the emotion is. Just such good writing and playing.
  14. that sounds like an absolute DISASTER.
  15. Does Jimmy really hold the multi-tracks for this but no release as he "is not happy with the quality"? If so I find that astounding. In fact, I just can't believe it. This Celebration Day would have to be best ever. If the concert is wholly like this, it would be a crime not to release it unless quality is beyond repair (hard to believe in this day and age) as it sounds like one of their strongest shows. I must be missing something....
