  3. The little old lady & Gyl Owen-Corrigan & Robert Plant & BP Fallon in the lobby of The Drake Hotel New York July 24th 1973 by & © Bob Gruen To mark the triumphant remastered re-release of Led Zeppelin’s first three albums with added tracks – Led Zeppelin I, II and III are in the British Top 10 – we present this unseen photograph by Bob Gruen taken in the lobby of The Drake Hotel in New York. BP Fallon takes up the story: “I was at Bob Gruen’s incredible ‘Rock Seen’ photo exhibition in New York this April and as part of his exhibition Bob was displaying blown-up contact sheets from which the photographs came. There was the contact sheet that had Bob’s famous shot of Zeppelin standing by their airplane ‘Starship’ and as I looked at this dark little image on the contact sheet I said ‘Look, there’s me!’ “It was Led Zeppelin on tour in 1973 and we were gathered in the lobby of The Drake Hotel in New York waiting for the limos to take us to the plane to fly us to Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh. And this rich old dear who lived at The Drake was berating Robert and grabbing his hair – ‘Why d’you have to have your hair long like that? Why can’t you look like a real man?’ Robert was very sweet to her, all peace and love”. Commented Bob Gruen to BP nearly 41 years later: “You have a pretty good memory to remember what she was saying.” So for your added delectation we’re showing Zeppelin’s ‘Traveling Riverside Blues’ video which flashes on this Drake lobby scene – plus some freezeframes from the video that capture this Old Money New York Lady Vs Led Zeppelin scenario. And yes, The Drake Hotel is where over $200,000 of Led Zeppelin’s money went missing a few days later – but that’s another story.

  4. British rockers Led Zeppelin look set to score three albums in the Top 10 this Sunday according to new information released by the Official Charts Company. Three of their albums have been reissued as deluxe editions and all of them appear to be making a mark on the Official Albums Chart Top 10. At this midweek stage on the Official Albums Chart their self-titled album is currently sitting at Number (4) while ‘Led Zeppelin II’ and ‘Led Zeppelin III’ which sit at Number (7) and (6) respectively. The Official Charts Company have revealed that when they were first released in 1969 their debut album peaked at number six while ‘Led Zeppelin II’ (1969) and ‘Led Zeppelin III’ (1970) both reached number one. Overall the British rockers have managed to earn themselves a staggering 17 albums in the Top 40 with eight of those reaching the top of the charts.

  7. Supersilent with John Paul Jones, Arches, Glasgow Rob Adams Folk & Jazz critic The speculation beforehand was whether any musical references to John Paul Jones's old band, Led Zeppelin, might feature. I didn't hear any but the appearance of a theme that Miles Davis made his own, Joe Zawinul's In A Silent Way, really was gobsmacking. Norwegian experimentalists Supersilent aren't known for doing cover versions – their plan is that there is no plan – but their trumpeter, Arve Henriksen will have grown up with Davis's music and lo and behold, among the ambient sounds, gurgling bass guitar responses from Jones and Stale Storlokken's itchy fingered keyboard work, in crept what we should, I suppose, call In a Supersilent Way, Zawinul's already affecting melody given added nuance by Henriksen's individual trumpet tone. Henriksen, one of European jazz's modern marvels, seemed to be almost the clearing house for all the many ideas that emerged in this improvised set. Everything went through him. His trumpet playing was a known quantity but he emerged as a really effective drummer, in Jarle Vespestad's absence, adding urgency and colour as the music developed a truly satisfying momentum that belied its spontaneously conceived nature. It probably shouldn't have been a surprise either, given his pedigree, that Henriksen is also a beautiful singer. Some of his on-mic work was spoken word, eerily portentous and apt for the sometimes industrial throb of the ensemble and the electronic sound world they created. But what stayed in the mind longest was his choirboy-like coda to the last improvisation, a lovely, pure-toned eulogy, part sacred song, part Norwegian folk-soul music. http://www.heraldsco...lasgow.19443278
