  1. Merry Christmas 2017

    Getting in before people shuffle off for Chrissie holidays.... Merry Christmas fellow Led Zeppelin devotees. Many happy returns and happy holidays to all. I hope Santa brings you and yours all your heart desires. Thanks all for making this place so unreal to visit on a daily basis. The insight and views on various albums, songs, live shows/boots, and all thing Zeppelin is great stuff. More than you'd find in most well written books about the subject I reckon. So sincerely, thank you one and all. And here is hoping 2018 truly is the year of Led Zeppelin with an abundance of activity that surprises us all! Cheers all!
  2. Suspicions

    Has Page or anyone else in the band/in the know ever hinted at - or let slip - that there are multi's on someone's shelf somewhere that anyone here knows of? If not, sadly, I can't see how it is possible multitrack Led Zeppelin concerts have remained hidden from all for all these years. One thing that works in favour of there being some material at hand is Page has not said there are no multitracks - or live material in the vaults. He always specifically referred to studio stuff when talking of the vaults during the remaster / re-release campaign and how "that was it". It makes sense that he always made that subtle distinction if guarding knowledge of live stuff without spilling the beans. We will soon know. If in 2018 there is nothing released, I doubt there ever will be within Page's lifetime. If there is something, surely Page will play the cards he has left. Why hold them longer?
  3. I quickly checked to see if I had this on my phone on the way out this morning. No, but I do have TX_Zapruder, the following night so I rocked this at work this arvo through headphones. Boy, what a great show! They are all on fire. Bonham especially. "Mr John Bonham!" Plant declares after IMTOD. And Plant's voice does not sound nearly as bad as a lot of the 75 boots. the only neg is that hella cut in No Quarter. Such a shame. This is a cracker of a show. I'll have to give the 3rd a run!
  4. What Made You Happy today?

    free internet upgrade from 400GB per month to 1200GB. YAY!!!
  5. What Made You Happy today?

    Good on you Jimmy from someone who needs to - but is not quite ready to - take the same path. A hearty handshake to you sir!

    yeah, really great shots! Beautiful. But that price tag!
  7. Colorado and Washington legalize Marijuana

    https://www.9news.com.au/world/2017/12/10/19/12/inside-california-s-cannabis-festival Local news. New Zealand is going to have a referendum on legalisation (if newly elected Gov't holds to their word). I hope they do. The NZ'ers beat us to Marriage equality, now it looks like they will beat us to drug law reform.

  9. Wow, and the longest Dazed. I'll have to find a spare 45 minutes for that one song! lol...
  10. Parents Comments About Zeppelin

    Cheers Strider. I'll be starting with only a track or two. See how it goes.....
  11. New 10/9/72 upgrade

    Thanks guys, getting the whole Japan run now - found a "complete live in Japan 27CD Box" download as well as the 'Led Zeppelin is my brother' specific one, so I'll have some listening to do as usual (and bloody struggle to get to them)... Muchos gracias.
  12. Parents Comments About Zeppelin

    No Dad for me unfortunately, but my mum AFAIK has zero Zep experience. I might take this as a challenge and ask mum to listen to a few choice tracks. It is out of her comfort zone, but as her taste is what I grew up with, and fully appreciate and still listen to on occasion (stuff like Neil Diamond - Hot August Night, some Johnny Cash, Boz Scaggs - Silk Degrees, Wings - Band on the Run) I think mumsy will at least "be polite" LOL. I'm thinking.... Ten Years Gone SIBLY from BBC sessions (I always thought that was one of the top 3 ever versions) I'm Gonna Crawl I'm going to see how that goes. She knows I am a Zeppelin nut. Will be interesting...
  13. New 10/9/72 upgrade

    Jeebus wept. I guess 1972 is when they were the perfect blend of exploration and precision/clarity??? This is incredible, and leads me to two questions.... 1. What 1972 boots are of outstanding quality? 2. Is there really a possibility of a "How the East Was Won" release? - or put another way, is there multi-tracks of one (or more) of the Japanese concerts that has similar BEAST MODE playing/singing to OTHAFA?? Is it even possible to confirm such a question???
  14. Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience (Tour)

    Very nice, thanks luvlz2. Can't wait to see them, only a handful of weeks to go....
  15. Uncut Zeppelin

    My advice, go for it. There is plenty to read through for the avid Zep fan - especially fairly new ones.
  16. Uncut Zeppelin

    I actually have this! Saw it in the newsagency about a year or so ago and just bought it on the spot. Couldn't believe it! I am just thumbing through it now, I can't remember how much of it I have read, but I think I took it to bed a few times and digested a bit of it. It is great. TONS of reading. All the old Melody Maker interviews, plenty of pics, some short reviews from journo's on albums... If your friend is a Led Zeppelin fan anything like us mutts in here, well worth it. If he is a casual fan, it is still really great IMHO. I'll have to re-acquaint myself with it... Pics of index attached (sorry, quick shitty phone camera shots while sitting in my nook)

    Why does that bit with Peter Grant in TSRTS talking about "As long as there's an extra nickel to be made..." come to mind? Surely the best pics from ALL photographers of that era are already available in some way or another (at least 99.9% of them) as that was their bread and butter at that time. 2hungie bucks Australian. sheeeesh.....
  18. Zeppelin's official live recordings

    Yeah, so if done right, we could have LTTE kinda gigs in a clarity that is almost beyond belief. And while it may have some anomalies, or be somewhat of a "representation" rather than a pure recording, with time, this could be (at least to me) the greatest thing ever. Maybe sounding so authentic you can't really tell unless you are pretty freakishly good with sound.
  19. Zeppelin's official live recordings

    It will emerge. Either Jimmy will bite the bullet and go for a release or two, or, many years from now once they are all gone and the estate becomes managed by others, there will be live releases. If not, the boots will just keep on rolling out. Hopefully gradually getting better and better. Hopefully occasionally completely surprising the Zep community.
  20. Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience (Tour)

    Mate, I swear, you are going to regret it.... LOL.....
  21. Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience (Tour)

    Jason Bonham. The man who filled in at the 02 and the Kennedy Honours gig. The man who is the son of the greatest there ever was and taught from a young age by the greatest. And THIS guy on guitar??? I swear Neil, If I was over there, I would drag you kicking and screaming...... I doubt they will be back here. And that's that rub. This is probably THE time to see Jason and Mr Jimmy perform. At the end of the day, i will be VERY surprised that if on my way home, I am disappointed rather than completely satisfied.
  22. Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience (Tour)

    I wonder if they will mix up the set list before the Bris gig. Maybe add Achilles or For Your Life??
