    Perfect. And then if someone comments on it in the correct context, win!!!

    Random Thoughts v.3

    I thought it was well done and shows the similarities. It was enjoyable to listen to - interesting.

    Holy crap that is expensive! I have a different belt buckle I got from the markets. Very nice. $15 from memory....

    In 50 years from now, It will be worth a BOMB - especially an unopened one. (Because I reckon they will be RARE AS - LOL)

    What's the weather like where you are?

    10 days plus now of rain. From annoying drizzle to heavy showers and a few thunderstorm cells. And it is set to continue into next weekend. Once the sun hits the grass is going to grow 3 or 4 inches in a day or two. cmon Spring, - spring already!!
  8. So one thing struck me when leafing through Led Zeppelin by Led Zeppelin.... The first pic (Except for the roll) is a nice full 2 page photo that kicks things off at the Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert. That's great. A nice B&W shot. Page 347 is all class. A great way to acknowledge and respect. P130 is great. And 24 to 27. Unreal. What are some of the highlights or things of interest to you? I'm still to go through it.

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    I'm just now discovering the untold riches of the '70's. There is indeed an embarrassment of plentiful low hanging fruit. By far the best musical era. Greatest decade for rock and music generally ever.
  10. Bonham and Jones on the Osaka mix are so good....
  11. Thanks mate - grabbed. Will give it a go tonight! :)
  12. 100%. Could not have been anything like it was if any different - and nothing like what was achieved with even the slightest variance. Top it off with Grant to manage them from the get go with the foundation understanding with Jimmy of how it was to be done. But yeah, to find those 3. Could not have gone better.
  13. kinda agree - but Page was the producer and steered the ship. It was his idea and he was the prime mover. Not to say the others were passengers in any way. Each contributed equally - as was Jimmy's design.

    Best Live Bass Solo

    TSRTS WLL during the freak out part (Theramin?) - he goes off. And it is CRIMINAL there are no shots of him during that particular freight train like bass run.

    Tourists usually get pranked with Vegemite. Tour guides like to pile that shit on when giving samples and heartily laughing under their breath. No self respecting aussie has more than the thinnest scrape on toast as it is all you need! I thank Australia for the beaches. Specifically the ones on the Sunshine Coast like Maroochy and that spot at Cotton Tree. That and being lucky enough to be a single country continent - avoiding a lot of the shit the rest of the world at times goes through (but helping out when needed).

    Five Places You Would Like To Visit

    Better hurry Strider. Each new look at the reefs health seems to trend south and has done for some years now. It is (and I believe remains so in large areas) spectacular, we went there on oury honeymoon 17+ years ago. Probably the best place I've been. (beating Yosemite National Park which was amazing) My 5 in no particular order..... Kennedy Space Centre. England and Ireland where my lovely wife will give me the greatest tour in history. Europe - specifically Germany, Austria, for the castles and history and the northern countries that are postcard picture perfect (nordic?) etc... Queenstown and drive to Milford Sound. That kind of country so close to home will be awesome to drive through. Canada - would love to drive across it. Not sure of the highway, but the one they built with those beautiful European looking giant hotels dotted along the route. And what a route! The scenery....

    What Made You Happy today?

    GREAT weekend almost over. Don't mind at all as I am not on call for two weeks now. Got a few odd jobs done, relaxed and slept in way too long with the missus which was nice. Kids back to school tomorrow, MASSIVE leg of lamb on the Weber now. I have a How the East Was Won to listen to thanks to Neil. - Next weekend when I can get right into the zone. .....life is good.
  20. Best TU ever I'd say. Jonesy took a massive dose of funk pills for this one. All throughout he is killing it like I haven't heard elsewhere. Possibly his best on the keys. Jimmy and Jonesy duelling and swapping lead/follow like BOSSES. The middle solo is superb. Funky and never losing its intensity and flavour. The outtro launches into outerspace when Plant starts the "woooo" and guitar follows him out of the stratosphere. Then it all climaxes with an incredible intensity that genuinely makes me think there could well have been a riot immediately following that last note. Energy levels OFF THE CHARTS. This alone is worth the price of admission in terms of the 1980 tour and how uneven it was.

    I am going to make inquiries at a local framers regarding if it is possible to iron out the creases in the folded poster and frame it.
