  1. Possibly. I think many in this generation already don't know, unless they sought out the original LP or CD issue, or read this forum. C'est la vie.
  2. Even though the old LP mix isn't the greatest, I prefer it to the overly processed sound of the 2007 remaster. That was such a missed opportunity, sonically and content wise. It's been said way too many times here , but the real fans want the original LP version, remastered, and with the addition of Black Dog, OTHAFA, Misty, SIBLY, Heartbreaker and The Ocean. Which is basically, the Heywood version. Too bad, another disappoinment. Hope come fall the good shit will start to appear.

    LED ZEPPELIN OFFICIAL ILLUSTRATED BOOK - COMING 2018

    Is there any way you could show a close up of those images? I'm dying to see what kit Bonzo is playing in that photo! That looks like it could be from '68.

    New 1968 Live shows for the 50th anniversary

    What a pity this stuff is just languishing. Can you imagine hearing Berlin 1970!! 😱

    New 1968 Live shows for the 50th anniversary

    Absolutely....and it's the historic importance and ass kicking playing that the fans want to experience. The mentality of... the show has to be from a multi-tracked source is nonsense. It's about time Zep fans who are aging get something worthwhile to listen to from the vaults. How fucking long will it be? Time is running out for us 50 something's and up! 😧⏳

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

    Exactly. If you're a die hard fan, of which in Zepdom there are multitudes, then this is what you really want. We have all seen the film umpteen times and the last go around in 2007 was fine. Maybe there are legal issues that would be too restrictive or $$$ to take alternate footage and make another few songs or even whole concert film from the original footage. The editing of the songs that were not originally in the movie like Celebration Day, OTHAFA, Misty , The Ocean are pretty lame IMO. Terrible super quick cut editing, it's so jarring you can't focus on one shot for more than a second or two before the angle shifts. Images of Bonzo playing Moby Dick in the middle of another song. When they pieced together those songs which were not included in the original film they almost did worse than the original film edit!! I can't imagine they didn't shoot enough footage to be able use mostly the longer wide angle shot from in front of the stage, and then splice in bits from other Song. 🤔

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

    To clarify, I mean the angle from out in the audience which shows the whole band on stage. Of course nothing can be done about changing anything in the movie, but what I would love to see is an alternate video release, maybe "TSRTS - From A Different Angle" , which would show us alternate view points with correctly synced audio....even for just a few songs since there are so many gaps...or at least make them as complete as posible by using other footage to fill gaps. Now that would be something to get excited about with this project, and the fans would love it. But that ain't gonna happen.

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

    Oh how I wish we could have a complete video of the concert from just that camera angle. I fucking hate all the chopped up close ups, and out of sync editing. But that's the movie.

    Has anyone seen the track timings for the CD or LP releases? I haven't yet seen them, only the track names.

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

    Absolutely. Well, I certainly hope along with many other die hards that this new LP and CD release will have the original soundtrack LP versions, remastered, and with the addition of the complete extra tracks...not simply another lazy audio rendering of the film versions. A definite early indication will be if the track timing for Black Dog is longer (2003 release ) or shorter (2007 release).

    Future Page Releases?

    Page spoke to Planet Rock Magazine for its sixth issue, and Music Week published some of his comments ahead of the magazine’s release on February 16. “I can’t give the game away,” Page said, “but there’s a recording that’s another multi-track that we’ll release. It’s so different to all the other things that are out there. It’s another view compared to How The West Was Won or The Song Remains The Same. I’m looking forward to people hearing that.” 🤔🙏🏼
  12. Pardon me if this is redundant but I just read this, and haven't seen it posted here on the Forums.

  13. The Heywood is great, but my only complaint is sometimes the crowd noise lingers too long into the tracks that are quiet at the start , like NQ, Dazed. It's the best version out there IMO though.
  14. I thought I read somewhere that there were legal reasons, not just because it was the most facile route to take. I can't cite the source but I'm certain I read it here.
  15. Also, the better , original LP version of Celebration Day, the better edit of SIBLY (the movie version is fucked up) , and the better Whole Lotta Love from the original LP version . Basically a re-edited remix. If all we are getting is the same 2007 version, that will be lame. But I assume the restricted copyright issues with the film will prevent any changes to the music. Isn't that the deal??
