    Grande Ballroom Detroit '69

    Thanks Sam! These are really great. It's incredible how tightly setup they are and how close they are to the front of the stage. I'm going to ask Tom if he can see himself in these photos because he said he was right up front, as you can tell by the pics that he took of Jimmy.

    Grande Ballroom Detroit '69

    Now I know!! Was wondering if there were any known pics from this gig. I know two people who went to this show and said they were totally blown away. One guy said during Dazed , it occurred to him that unlike most rock shows he had been to, the audience was dead quiet during Jimmy's bow solo. He said people were mouths agape, in wonder. I'll ask if he has any more pics to share. He went to most of the shows they did in Detroit.

    Grande Ballroom Detroit '69

    These photos were graciously shared by a friend named Tom Gaston, who took them on May 16 1969 at the Grande Ballroom in Detroit. He has never publicly shared them before. He gave me the go ahead to share them with the fan community so here they are. I checked this gig on the timeline here and there are no other known photos from this gig so this is a nice find.

    Shows from 1975 with no recording

    What I would love to hear is the early tour shows, Bloomington and Chicago, to hear the different setlist in SBD quality...and no doubt they're out there, but we prob won't see them for a long time. I don't care much for another mid/ late SBD, but those seem to be the ones that drop .

    Led Zeppelin or Related on YouTube

    Thanks! It's one of the most challenging Zep tunes to play for sure, but I've been playing it a long time. I'd love to play it live someday...hopefully we can get this Virtual Zeppelin out of the hangar!

    Very curious to hear this one, and how it compares to the cobra version

    Sound effect on celebration day

    "This playful, uptempo rocker was built around a slinky slide riff conceived by Jones, the genesis of which he described in his column in Guitar World July 1997: “I came up with the intro/verse riff to “Celebration Day” while playing and old Danelectro baritone guitar like a lap steel, using an unusual, low open A7 tuning (low to high: A A A E G Cs), a steel bar and a nut saddle to raise the strings.” When performing the song live, Page would adapt this riff to standard-tuned guitar."
