    Things You've Heard From The Audience?

    9/23/71...while Plant is talking , killing time waiting to start Heartbreaker, an American sounding guy yells out " get on with it!!) . LOL.
  2. Haha, agreed. WTF? Can you imagine saying that to Robert? Good grief.

    Virtual Zeppelin on YouTube

    Still looking for a singer, but in the meantime we will post instrumental videos.
  4. Some of you may have heard of the YouTube Zep cover band Virtual Zeppelin. They are back with a new line-up and I'm thrilled to be a part of the project. We are looking for a vocalist so, anyone who may be interested in auditioning... please record yourself singing along to the following posted video of Ramble On, or contact me for a sound file of the track.

    Auckland Soundboard 1972

    Can you post or share a sample, preferably a guitar solo? I have to assume you have an audience recording but ...one never knows. If you're into Zep live recordings you probably know there are no soundboards around in public circles aside from the Long Beach 72 songs. Ain't nuthin' else out here.

    Led Zeppelin or Related on YouTube

    Thanks Mook! I love how he played this song live, with the different fills and swagger.
  8. Damn, he sounds great here. I like this way more than his recent touring band's music. This shit is rockin! He's in his element with these guys. I wish he'd do a tour with this band.

    They were in consideration too...and the Band.

    Still the greatest rock band!

    Hard to narrow to just 10 but in place of those I'd put Sabbath, Purple, even AC / DC

    Jimmy Page photo shoot at Abbey Road Studios

    Sorry, I must've missed that. Museum promo? Where was that said? I doubt this is anything more than promo shots, though he must've used the bow, it's on the amp.

    Not familiar with that one.

    Best version of 6/11/77?

    This is way too slow, a full half step low...terrible.

    Best version of 6/11/77?

    That Butternubs one on YouTube is way off. I have a two source merge that I got off dime and it is at correct pitch. Dead on. This one... 6/11/77 Madison Sq. Garden, NY -2 source merge: Source 1: Master > CDR > ? > FLAC > CDR(2) > EAC > WAV > Sound Forge (edit clicks between tracks) > shntool (correct sbe's) > FLAC > dBPowerAMP > WAV (originally treed through FBO), speedcorrected Source 2: unknown gen Cass > X-Fi > Clean! >WaveLab > FLAC > dBPowerAMP > WAV (sean_the_bootlegger source), speedcorrected Original notes from Sean: This is a very good tape. It appears our taper was concerned about running out of tape, so he shut it down often between songs and subsequently chopped a few things up. Still, it's worth grabbing. Source 2: 2nd gen Cass > Video Hifi > X-Fi >WaveLab > FLAC > dBPowerAMP > WAV (sean_the_bootlegger source), speedcorrected Original notes from Sean: The end of the June 11th sources. Though the show is still not complete, it does include at least some of Heartbreaker. During Ten Years Gone and No Quarter one channel dropped out completely. I repaired them by turning the missing sections into mono. Unfortunately the video hi-hi had some trouble tracking in some places. Murphys Law. So, for the purists, here it is anyway...one more source. Note : the 2nd gen Cass > Video Hifi source is from the same taper as source 2 (same cuts, same crowd noises), it sounds much worse even though it's listed as a known gen (but see Sean's notes. It's a bit more complete and it's been used to complete source 2 wherever possible. then : > Audacity (speed correcting, merging) > WAV > FLAC frontend > FLAC (level 😎

    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.

    Jimmy Page photo shoot at Abbey Road Studios

    It was a goofy thing to do....as if he's going to perform like a trained seal . He strummed out a little Ramble On and that was that.

    Use an online tuner like thepitchpipe.com and see if the root of the key of the song matches the pitch of the correct note when you play the tuning tone. For example Sick Again is in E....SIBLY is in C minor.

    EV Tutankhamun Box" Just Spotted!

    πŸ˜‚ That Google translation though....WTF are those titles??

    EV Tutankhamun Box" Just Spotted!

    Aye laddie! What an epic bore. Holding out on releasing the good shit , trickling out a song here and there....fucking lame bullshit. Hoarding the good stuff, like Manhattan real estate opportunists , holding out for max profits. EV should be encouraging fans to buy , but seems like they are alienating more and more. 9/28/71 anyone, 75 boards, cricket, cricket...zzzz ???
  22. I'm as cynical as they come, but next year is the 50th of the first album release. I do think there will be a worthwhile live release. Maybe not Holy Grail , but substantial. Even if it's just the streaming thing. But I think there will be something special released.

    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.
