  1. Over the Hills: sung in high register?

    Actually I misspoke in my earlier post. This is one of the best versions out there for Plant. 10/10/72 Kyoto Japan.

    Another victim of Plant losing his high register vocals is Black Dog. Was Milan 1971 the last time he really went for it? Maybe Montreux in August?

    I think the first known version is 6/19/72 Seattle during the encores. The first half of the song is missing from the tape but it’s a killer version. It was performed the next show in Denver but no tape of it so far. It was probably played in San Diego as well but sadly no tape of that show either The 1972 Osaka show I was so surprised that he could still sing it so well considering how is vocals were changing at that time.

    I want a great Japan live set that this I was thinking/hoping the “different view” meant. You’re the first one to post exactly what I was thinking.
  5. Underrated/overrated shows

    6/23/77 LA. I think since it’s famous and Keith Moon was a guest that everyone praises it. Achilles Laat stand it good. I tbink 6/21 and 6/27 have much better No Quarters easily. 6/23 No Quarer is nice the the middle section doesn’t take me where I need to go. Plus to many broken strings and mess ups. If the recording was poor I’d guess not many could praise it as much

    I hear a little squeak by Plant on the 2bd wail but I think I his voice is fine. I think he’s doing that vibrato effect by shaking the mic back and forth. He does the same thing during the RAH film during I Cant Quit You Regarding missing tracks...I’ve never seen it mention about the theramin not working for most of the WLL segment during the Southampton 1973 concert. I don’t think it’s a faulty or bad mixdown. I wonder if it failed at the show?

    I’ve often wondered if Jimmy cuts out all the covers because he wants to just showcase Led Zeppelin songs and music rather that other bands music. Not sure the royalty fee havevanything to do with it.

    The North America 1971 soundboards deserves its own thread. All three Orlando, Toronto & Hampton surfaced within a few years of each other. Toronto was the first I believe surfacing around the same time as Stidio Daze. Then Hampton and finally Orlando. If these three are all from the band rather then just random sound men plugging in it does show the band was actively recording in 1971. It’s possible while tours exist like this just like 1973, and beyond. Even earlier we have seen the Revox reel to reel active during the Summer 1970 German shows. It’s possile the 1971 shows are complete shows too if not all but maybe some of them. If the brand was recording you’d think they would run tape for the entire show. Orlando would be nearly complete but the soundman was slow to start the 2nd tape and so 15-20 of the middle of the show was missed. Imagine how many other shows are that sitting there. I’d Page didn’t think Japan multitracks are good enough for release then he must have a hundred or more soundboards from their prime early years. Its exciting that we could possibly get back to back soundboard I better recording of the two Osaka shows.

    In the book Hammer of the Gods (dont flame me, lol) it mentions Jimmy had a new state of the art Stellavox field recorder around this time or early 1972. This is one of the only times I heard about him and a Stellavox field recorder. You have to think many shows from this time were recorded on that deck.

    It’s so awesome! http://starship.jpn.ph/zeppelin/beauty/disp/boot.jsp?R_idx=2487

    The cover lists Immigrant Song and Heartbreaker. Awesome release and I’ve never put the bootleggers down in my life but this seems like a pretty lame thing $65 for two songs? Lmao. Still love how much they bring us and I’ll take any and all soundboards from any years. This could be a preview of what’s to come! Every collector out there has wanted to heard these Japan treasures.
  12. Jimmy Page confirms 2018 release(s)

    Regarding Jimmy editing and chopping up every live release - think of “The Emperor Has No Clothes.” I’m sure everyone around Jimmy just ass kisses him and never tells him how lame it is to butcher up these historical recordings. Not one live Zeppelin release has ever been done correctly.
  13. HTWWW vs. Burn Like A Candle After 10 Plus Years

    Yes his name is known but I’m not sure if the gear was known. He saw two amazing Zeppelin shows.
  14. HTWWW vs. Burn Like A Candle After 10 Plus Years

    He also taped one of the Oakland 1970 sources. He did almost nail the tape flips and I think he made a great sounding recording. There is a tape flip during the intro of Going to Calirofnia and also during Going Down Slow during the WLL medley. Check every 40-45mins and you’ll her the cut. Not much was missed at all and he did do a great job.
  15. Jimmy Page confirms 2018 release(s)

    Does anyone have specifics on what possible new releases are on the horizon for the 50th anniversary. Either audio or visual or print?
