    Are there any songs that you feel just don't work when played live?

    I can never listen to those two songs the same way again! Funny shit!

    I agree with For Your Life mostly because Page's guitar solo on the studio cut is one of his best(in my opinion) and he could not replicate it live. But I still love the O2 attempt. I have always loved Over the Hills live and most of the live versions I've heard (3/4/75 my favorite) has always blown away the studio version even if Plant's voice could never reach those high notes ever again which I know turns alot of people off.

    Bonzo 70th Birthday Bash in Chicago

    I will celebrate at home with some of Bonzo's greatest moments recorded on tape accompanied by some ganja.

    Nitpicking Page (The quest for the best performance of 1975)

    I have been enjoying your reviews... keep them coming!

    Nitpicking Page (The quest for the best performance of 1975)

    I love the 2/12 MSG show and Page is on fire (along with Bonzo and Jonsey) but Gibson makes a good point of Jimmy falling off the rails right after Dazed. The quality of the soundboard recording also enhances the quality of the show even if Plant's voice isn't up to snuff.

    Best No Quarter from '75 US Tour

    I agree about Baton Rouge. I think the whole show is overrated. St. Louis on the other hand is a great unmentioned show. One of my favorite versions of "In My Time of Dying."

    the stooges

    I have an original Elektra 1st press of Funhouse on vinyl and it is an amazing sounding record. The louder you crank it, the better is sounds and it creates a pleasant disturbance to my neighbors.

    LED ZEPPELIN'S 50th ANNIVERSARY PLANS?

    If there is a reunion, JPJ's contract must include that clause.

    Nitpicking Page 2/8/75 Philadelphia ( The Spectrum)

    Actually I think I meant 1/20... the show with "When the Levee Breaks."

    Nitpicking Page 2/8/75 Philadelphia ( The Spectrum)

    I enjoyed your analysis and always appreciated this show as an underrated gem but I listen to this show as fan of live Zep so some of the minor Page flubs never bothered me as he is still recovering from a smashed finger. I have to listen to this one again. I think you should nitpick Chicago 1/21/75 or New York 2/12/75 which in my opinion are in the top 10 for best shows of the US 75 tour... even with an injured James Patrick Page.

    Led Zeppelin II Vinyl question

    The Canadian Red label is a sleeper.

    Live better than Studio

    In my mind, it seems you are the resident expert on Zeppelin live so I am always eager to listen to your takes on shows/songs. But there is this lingering curiosity as to why you prefer the studio version of "Black Dog." I'm sure its already obvious to you that the live versions from 71 come at you a little harder and faster than the studio cut... especially the live one from the 9.29.71 Osaka show which is my favorite. The live Black Dog also builds on the strength from Plant still able to hit those high notes with the confidence of a viking conqueror There is also a special treat from Bonzo when he executes those rapid fire bass drum accents during the "Oh baby, pretty baby" section. I can go on to what else Bonzo does but let me put it to you this way, the spotlight is on him during the song. Jonesy keeps things tight and it appears to me at times that Page feeds off of Bonzo which gives an indication on what goods Jimmy is bringing to the table that night with his ferocious riffing and the closing guitar solo. It also gets me every time when Plant does the "I've got a girl that loves me so... love me long sweet jelly roll" line. I don't know, maybe its just me but I can't help but to declare the live "Black Dog" winner over the studio cut.

    Live better than Studio

    One of my favorites as well. I think there are two deciding factors that may nudge your preference to the studio version: Page's guitar solo (studio version) is ranked very highly in my book and that is the main reason why I take the Presence cut any day. And don't forget... Bonzo's magic and touch on "For Your Life" cannot be replicated by his son. Don't get me wrong, I love the O2 version and got chills hearing it live. You have to explain yourself here. So many live versions that destroy the studio cut.

    Plant's vocals on I'm Gonna Crawl

    I agree and so did Bonzo.
