    EV Tutankhamun Box" Just Spotted!

    Not soundboards - it would have said if there were.
  2. Very interesting, but I really don't think there's any way in the world a Zep reissue gets impacted because of a Yardbirds release. The release itself looks interesting, although it's a shame it's Repertoire as their mastering of their Yardbirds titles (along with many other titles) has been atrocious.

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    Could be months, could be never. What we have so far isn't even a rumor or a leak - it's just a trademark application. Trademark applications sometimes don't manifest as actual products for months or years, or ever.

    Best 14 Led Zeppelin Love Songs

    Some of those are not love songs, by any stretch. Removing the ones that are lust/blues songs, I'd say the remaining ones are ranked sensibly, except that Ten Years Gone is ranked way too low. IMHO clearly in the top 3 or 4 Zep love songs, easy.

    A George Lucas amount of Edits...

    Most hardcore Zep fans prefer the original 1976 mix and edits. However, I'd say the truth is more complicated than that. The current/2007 version has inferior versions of Celebration Day (different guitar solo), No Quarter (2 minutes of amazing soloing cut out), and Whole Lotta Love (Crunge section cut out via a horrid, jarring edit). For the rest of the tracks, though, it's really a matter of taste whether one prefers the 1976 or 2007/2018 versions.

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    You have no substantiation for this claim.
  7. Yes, and that has not gone unnoticed there either! If something has changed since he originally posted about this stuff, of course no one could've seen that coming. But if he knew that something was in the works with as much certainty as he indicated, then he also must know at least something now about what's going on (or not going on). The silence suggests to me that the level of confidence/certainty of the earlier posts might have been overstated.
  8. I hear you on that, but since the choice is either nothing or Page-Frankenstein version, I'll take the latter in a heartbeat, especially since it's possible that the whole 929 show, including WLL, is still out there in the sound quality of the recently surfaced soundboard. It's why the Good Lord invented bootlegs - so you can have the whole night's performance in decent quality as an alternative to the official, edited version. 😀
  9. I think this is a very realistic notion. I've been saying to folks hoping for a last-minute release this year that the Zep I release date is much more realistic for a new 50th anniversary release to come out. But given we've heard nothing yet, I am more inclined to agree with you that we will have to wait until Jan 2019 just to get the announcement, with the release in March. My understanding is that the original intention likely was not to miss the Christmas season - TSRTS reissue apparently was supposed to come out earlier in the year, but was delayed, throwing off the whole timeline.

    New "Song Remains The Same" 2CD/4LP/3DVD Deluxe Set

    I don't entirely agree, but I do partially agree, and I get where you're coming from 100%. For HTWWW, though, our only choices are the original 2003 mastering and the 2018 remastering. And IMHO the 2018 is more laid-back and natural-sounding, not '70s-sounding, but IMHO closer to it. To my ears the 2003 mastering sounds like it's fighting the sonic character of the source, punching it up to make it sound "modern." The 2018, while constrained to use the 2003 mix (which is very different than a '70s-era mix would have been), sounds like it's letting the source be more what it is. I would guess John Davis' mastering work on the 2018 live reissues was more subtractive than additive.
