    New Jimmy Page Biography Released

    Really It has all been out there I am a huge fan of Plants's recent solo work and don't think the Thunder Gods will return and yeah the 50th anniversary so far has been enigmatic... but these sensationalist stories and "definitive " biographies are a bad rehash of 70's innuendo and exaggeration.....enough. We get it Jimmy Page is just perched to be the Antichrist any day now and assimilate us all....(total sarcasm) Back to music... I still love the Diaments but the latest remasters are growing on me...

    Plant 18 Tour

    Slightly off topic but I talked to someone who ran into him in NYC yesterday and said he was very cool and actually volunteered for a picture without being asked. I don't expect the hard core heavy 70's rock fans to understand but the show in NYC was killer and Seth Lakeman was great. Many have forgotten both Robert and jimmy have been on stage with Fairport Convention. Zep had folk roots too....Loved finally hearing that's the way live but carry fire was my highlight. I know there's plenty on here who call it sleepy music but at least he's out there instead of re re re mastering everything possible. Love Jimmy but the new music promised.... not gonna happen. Anyway this band was tight. Will we get a newly released Zep live show... hope so but ...50/50 at best is my guess
  3. Agreed I also worked at a music store and still buy cd's and wish I had kept vinyl but can't rebuild collection at this point on vinyl. Sad I realize when I said I was happy cd had inner sleeve that many probably have no idea what an inner sleeve is.. well here they do but elsewhere...I have incessant problems with I tunes on 2 different computers and phone. I didn't even take free download -uploaded from cd. I only use uploaded cd's on phone in car to protect cd collection safely at home.
  4. Seriously I get it it u hate it I love it but and I am not being a D***k but why do u still even try listening after 10 or 20 years? I used to like u2 but somehow think they lost raw honesty of first 4 albums. I stopped listening. Obviously if another album follows this one u will listen in full but I'd spend 49 minutes listening to what u like instead. Many have told me Presence is boring but that and 3 are my favorites.
  5. Cool thing it actually has inner sleeve less of a scratch fest. Great cd really exotic .. may not please the rock only crowd but few people Plant's age would even attempt such unique sounds.
  6. I love it. People can call it sleepy music or whatever but I really love this and looking forward to ny in feb. for the folks that don't like it I hope u find something u do like out there. McCartney jagger could not make such a textured work of art at this point. Thanks for that link. I am stoked!!!

    Robert Plant US tour 2018

    Honestly this is first year it was siuch a trial I was able to get decent seats at sale time in years past. I see the angst of people shut out and really do feel bad. It was wife's idea to try cc promo. I do not understand why verified fan presale was locked when they were still taking cc promos. Had it not been for amazing wife and her will I would have been shut down as well... I got tix but hate these bragging" I got mine ha ha "posts. Really this tour was toughest yet Honestly I think Plant and management may know nothing of fans trials.... good luck to all and as bad as alternative it may b there r websites with very little mark up for decent seats .., a dilemma for people like me who don't buy from scalpers or bootleggers but an option -hint ny tic if you grab couple loge seats very very good if reasonable
  10. Could not agree more watch and listen to the damn live show! Want a pic of Plant on stage try google..,last tour saw terrific B.A.M show then had Hammerstein ballroom ruined year later by woman screaming in my ear. "Where's Jimmy Page... play Stairway"! I don't know details of cc pre sales my wife happened to have chase card and tried on whim..,sorry for folks that got shut out especially by verified fan presale which does not seemed to have worked for many.,,
  11. The next great Robert Plant tour is upon us and the usual discussions are on. There are people that like his ventures into Americana and world music. I am one of them. I am thrilled to see him in ny. I love LZ too.. I still run through their catalog all the time but it's an age old debate especially after 07 ...LZ ended for me in 1980 when Bonzo died.i like hearing Plant do what he can with his voice well than be like McCartney who does not know one can't sing at 70 something like they did 50 years ago. For people who don't dig Robert and his recent music it made my chance of getting tickets and cd even better.. I like the songs so far and honestly at 69 he can and will do what he wants and I can't wait. Cue the trashing of everything he's done in last 10 years.. PS I will say the verified fan sale did not go well -go right to Chase presale !

    Companion discs are rubbish

    U know there r probably 100 posts from me agreeing that bonus discs r rubbish not now with no hype. Rebuying and relisteningb I do like them and love 3 and coda . I don't have bootlegs but feel these r interesting alternate looks at the albums I think the first time around I did not get the concept.
  13. Yeah I stupidly sold vinyl in 90's and turntable was destroyed in a move at that time. The diament/ Sidore cd's still sound good to me but I bought complete studio on I tunes for phone to car playing and they r pretty nice. I just have neither time nor money for costly system or to get turntable and repurchase. Yes I still have 800 cd's
  14. I have found bits I do really enjoy but see the original poster's point to a degree but Coda definitely should have been 2 full cd's... this was a decision I don't get. I had good luck getting scuff free discs til presence I went thru 4 til I got a disc 2 without glue on it. The Japanese know how to package.
