    Led Zeppelin to do a Live streaming service

    😂 Make mine mint chip!

    Happy 50th Anniversary

    That's great to hear, did you happen to notice if there are any photos of the 1968 shows? Specifically of the drums from those early shows? I'm dying to see more photos of what Bonzo was playing in the fall of 68 before they went to the US for the first time.

    Led Zeppelin to do a Live streaming service

    Dude! I'm not trying to shame you....I just found humor in the fact that your first reaction to this potentially good news is assuming it'll suck . I want lossless too, but I am very excited at the prospect of hearing any live material EQ'd for better clarity than a rough audience tape or dry bones SBD , even if it's a lame MP3. I just thought it was funny that a diehard fan's immediate response is to say... it's going to be ruined anyway.

    Oh , a glass is half empty type eh? 😏 I would gladly take a clear, mastered matrix aud/sbd mp3 any day over any lossless audience tape. Those already are plentifully available. Most hardcore fans have lossless audience transfers. I love how quickly people start with the negative vibes. Anyway, this sounds like real pie in the sky, but we shall see....🤔
  5. What nonsense. Download it from a torrent site until you can get a reasonable priced copy if you want the silvers.

    Tea For One

    Absolutely agree. I think the song is a masterpiece of emotional storytelling, and that guitar solo that Jimmy conjured up is one of his most lyrical and emotive solos ever recorded. It's also one of plants most heartfelt lyrics, and if you've ever had to be apart from someone you care about deeply that song should strike a nerve for you.

    Thanks for your impressions. If Bonzo's drums are the victim I'm definitely passing on this. Do they sound more natural though compared to the boosted , over compressed 2007 release?

    Click track?

    😋 Listen to the isolated track, the taps sound too hard to be fingers. It sounds like sticks on something rubbery or padded to me, but it could be because of the mic'ing and reverb. Eddie Kramer ....yoohoo!

    New "Song Remains The Same" 2CD/4LP/3DVD Deluxe Set

    So with all the numerous threads on this release, can anyone explain if the audio release has to be the same as the video content, and if so why? Is there some legal reason regarding the rights , which makes it imperative that they have to be the same?? Or is it just laziness/cost inefficient to do a separate audio version . The original soundtrack 2 LP didn't match the film. What's the deal??

    Actually, can anyone here explain why it is that the audio release in 2007 and again now is just a direct rip of the film? Was there some legal reason regarding the rights , which makes it imperative that they have to be the same?? Or is it just laziness/cost inefficient to do a separate audio version . The original soundtrack 2 LP didn't match the film. What's the deal??

    😄 I like reading a good rant!
  13. Thanks , I appreciate that . I agree with you about this track too....there is so much more going on , between Bonzo and Jones than meets the casual ear. It really is an epic little performance.

    Led zep film- TSRTS

    If you're referring to the audio only then yes, I agree . They would sell, maybe not like hotcakes , but there are a lot of serious fans that would too. Maybe they'd lose some dosh but do Zep really need to make a killing at this point, anyway ? LOL. I just posted in another thread about this. TSRTS has been begging for a proper release in audio forum, with poor edits corrected, the best versions of songs like Celebration Day, No Quarter, and the inclusion of some alternate takes, encores, Thank You etc. Maybe a 9 CD set of all 3 nights would not be practical, but I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

    New "Song Remains The Same" 2CD/4LP/3DVD Deluxe Set

    Dude, I am not grateful for this release....and this forum is tailor made for bitching and moaning! 🤣 Seriously though, you must admit....doing a remaster of the original sound track with the beauty of that No Quarter intact , the better Whole Lotta Love, the better Celebration Day, the fucked up edit on SIBLY corrected wouldn't have been a monumental task. It would have been relatively simple, and not beyond giving "us all he has". Of all their albums , TSRTS has been begging for a proper audio release for decades. I don't expect anything more about the film (even though there must be reels of footage, alternate angles , a "God shot " from the audience) that would be so fucking amazing to see , synced up with the audio correctly. Now that would be a treasure for the fans....extra unseen bits from the film , even if they were incomplete!! Fuck me, imagine that!!?? But I digress. I do expect that a proper audio release with the issues I noted above , maybe the inclusion of the encore Thank You , even some alternate takes of songs would be giving us fans something of real value for the $$, and make us really ecstatic. This release is lame.
