  1. Trentham Gardens '73 was Multi Tracked

    Not to me they don't. Liverpool sounds flat compared to Trentham, where I can hear the drums breathing. Do an A/B comparison here and tell me they sound the same. Just play Liverpool at 5:10 and then play Trent at 5:00 and you will see a giant fucking difference

    '75 was recorded on reels.

    If anybody wants to gets their mind blown, I suggest putting on some headphones and listen to TSRTS from this show.

    Very good connection there, glad you caught that. Its also a very good first post. Welcome to the Forum.
  5. Trentham Gardens '73 was Multi Tracked

    Somebody please go to 1:09:20 and crank it the fuck up for a while! Then, come back and tell me that this doesn't sound like a multi track. I'm sticking to my theory that Eddie Kramer recorded this show before Southampton.
  6. Trentham Gardens '73 was Multi Tracked

    I agree with some of this, but not all. I personally hear "sonic benefits" that separate this recording from other sbds during U.K./tour. And, I think you're giving way too much credit to Winston for their remastering prowess. They're good, but there's only so much you can do with remastering anything. You can make it worse, or you can make it better, but you can't make it amazing. There's some amazing shit here from what ever source this is from. Also, I think the chances that this was multi tracked is much better than "slim to none" is because I was always baffled why they had Kramer recording them at Southampton to begin with it. I've always found that odd. Having Kramer record a couple shows though thru this local run makes much more sense to me. This is pure speculation, but imagine this: Both Hampton & Trentham were multi tracked by Kramer. Hampton was released as a rough mix because the performance wasn't worthy of being officially released. But, Trentham was held back for a future release down the road because it was too fucking good to give it up just yet.

    Its at 30 minutes in

    Dude! I fucking dare you to play Dancing Day's from this show and crank it the fuck up. I dare ya........you'll see

    I seriously have no doubt about it. The level of clarity and detail on the drums screams multi track to my ears. And, this could be the D&C Page recently spoke about listening to from '73, as opposed to Southampton as well.
  10. Trentham Gardens '73 was Multi Tracked

    I am convinced that Southampton was not the only show multi tracked by Eddie Kramer during their '73 UK run. Not only is Trentham a superior performance but it is recorded better than Southampton. Sounds like an unbalanced rough mix from a multi track to me. No way in hell this is a soundboard. Nope.
  11. What Are You Listening To At This Moment?

    Judge Roy Moore's favorite song
  12. What show or live song are you listening to now?

    Fucking Amazing!
  13. It Makes Me Wonder

    ^ Agreed! What I loved about The Ocean as the encore song in '73 is that it wasn't intense or exploratory, just a great way to relieve the pressure/have some quick fun/flash some smiles and call it a night. Never liked RR as an encore to be honest, loved it as an opener when they played it with that slow swagger though. I imagine that the only reason OTHAFA stayed in their setlist was because the band turned that pretty song into dark fucking storm during the solo, otherwise, no way in hell it would have remained in their set past '73. Also willing to bet that Plant tried like hell to drop the song but the band would have none of that shit. And thank god for that
  14. Chris Squire Rumours

    My old guitar teacher used to play in a local fusion band back in the late 80's/early 90's. He told me about the time Chris Squire "demanded" to sit in with the band. Long story short: Squire was "shit faced drunk"....it did not go well, but they weren't about to refuse a jam with a legend such as Squire, who would?
  15. It Makes Me Wonder

    Thinking about why LZ never played 'The Ocean' again after the '73 tour. Also wonder why Dancing Days was never played post '73 as well. They're not very complicated songs to play and they're both uplifting/fun vibes and just fucking rocked live!. Dancing Days is probably the only song LZ ever played twice in the same concert (Seattle '72) because (according to Plant) "we like playing this song so much we're gonna play it again". So, why'd they permanently drop these two songs?
