  1. Zeppelin participating in record store day..? Yeah, not going to happen. Also, highly doubtful of that bird from III being the slightest indication of what's to come. I've almost ruled out getting anymore studio material, but if we do it will certainly be interesting. It was obvious that Page's #1 rule with the companion discs was to include professional sound quality tracks, which has left an opening for that 2-3 CD compilation album of more interesting material. But that's something for 5 years down the road. We need something exciting for a 50th, meaning 929.
  2. Favorite HMMT performance?

  3. Favorite HMMT performance?

    Anyone listen to Toronto 1969-08-18? Not the best, but damn did that concert sound like a blast!? Love the way Plant introduces the band "On drums, and lead guitar.." lol. Anyway 2 questions about it (HMMT intro). Before Plant introduces Bonzo, he said "On bass guitar, and Hammond organ.. JPJ". Could have sworn Jonsey strictly played bass through 1969 because it's expensive to haul a Hammond organ around..? Also, anyone know who introduced Plant!? Could that have been Jimmy Page!?!?
  4. I'll have to say for me, it's specifically Thank You - Montreal 1972-06-07. The recording isn't great to begin with, then concludes with the most tedious CUT at the final chorus... Yet something about it has drawn me back to it so damn many times.
  5. top 5 favorite No Quarters

    I'll keep this one simple.. 1973-05-26 - Salt Lake City. 1973-07-17 - Seattle. 1973-07-28 - New York. 1975-03-19 - Vancouver. 1977-06-23 - LA Forum.
  6. Europe 73 - Best of

    Yeah.. Unfortunately the only way to do that would be if they multi tracked the shows, which a soundboard recording does not have individual tracks..
  7. Here's what I mentioned.. Now don't under any circumstances go away with any impression that this will be it, but I don't see there being a few shows that the band recorded (on soundboard, obviously) for a personal reference being out of the question.. These guys were a little bit more professional than what many might think.. They were certainly doing their homework (listening to themselves and perfecting every detail in their music) throughout 1969-1973. While touring throughout 1971, and working on the definite rock n roll album they certainly were making some type of sound board recordings, before the NA tour. Why hasn't some magical recording like this been released by now? Simply because this isn't golden standard multi tracked material that Page prefers to use for official releases, It sounds like Page has been scraping the bottom of the barrel of the multi tracked tapes of RAH '70, Osaka '71, CA '72, Southampton & NY '73, EC '75, Knebworth '79.. But perhaps decided to take a look at the bottom shelf 'band reference' soundboard tapes to see if there's anything interesting.. To say the least, there might be a coincidence between the specific things we randomly got last year between these photos, the Montreux show (and the photos of the reels of that show), and the 1971-09-28 Black Dog... All seem like little things that purposely get out when Page digs into the vault.. I would imagine that when Page and Shirley or whoever digs in the vault and gathers some shows, along with the digital transfering work they would label everything in a rather quick, yet authentic fashion like this, as they are quite professionals in the music production business. But at the end of the day. If this is just some random audience recording someone has the fortune of hoarding, and we get some underwhelming EC '75 compilation live album, I'll still be happy to get to add something to my Zeppelin collection.. Heck just an audio release of the DVD would be awesome lol.
  8. It looks like pure speculation around here so I'll try to add to that... I have no idea how I could remember this, but I know everyone remembers back in September 2016 when we got the Montreux '70 upgrade with Communication Breakdown, and the unexplained photos that complimented it.. I seem to recall a photo of what seemed to be an official document of Copenhagen 1971-05-04 setlist (the unheard following night) which listed Gallows Pole... September 2016, as soon as TCBBC was all finished and released it was certainly time to began checking the vault for something special for this upcoming release.
  9. Favorite/Best version of Since I've Been Loving You

    ...really one of my favorite songs found in the setlist from '70-'80. It's truly amazing how they approached the song so many different ways, yet always nailed it. Now I know my former self would disagree, but I have been leaning towards '71 as the best performances of the song.. Now don't hold me on this because I have been really enjoying the long waited SIBLY from Seattle '75. But as with Heartbreaker, I'll say Hampton, VA 1971-09-09 is absolutely great. Highly recommend this partial soundboard recording (GF: High Heeled Sneakers) has to be one of the best bootlegs, despite it ending early.. Is this release just a soundboard recording? Certainly one of the best quality soundboard recordings out there.. It's never
  10. Pat's Delight

    I think part of it has to do with the tone of the guitar being similar to Cream.
  11. Best Heartbreaker Live

    Hampton 1971-09-09 gets my vote. I also really like the Zeppelin I companion disc version. Love the energy of those opening 3 tracks!
  12. It Makes Me Wonder

    I was just referring to a couple comments at the beginning of this post about Bonzo possibly not liking to play the song.
  13. It Makes Me Wonder

    C'mon amateur's. Dancing Days came up a few times in '77 The soundboard recording of the 1977-05-26 Landover performance is incredible. As for The Ocean, really should have been an occasional encore through the end.. However, I believe Bonzo being against it. He seemed a bit frustrated with it since the 5th take.. Perhaps he just never felt confident with it. I don't know much at all about drums, but that does seem like a very tedious song to nail on drums.
  14. Best LIVE VERSION of Ten Years Gone?

    Well Ten Years Gone is actually a rather easy song to play on guitar, though it does take some concentration to get the timing right and of course you have to be feeling it to get the solos where they were on the good nights. It doesn't really matter how difficult Jonsey's part was, as he was always on. Now Bonzo's roll played a huge part on this song as it suffered extremely in the outro in San Diego.. But also one of the few songs that would benefit from a mediocre Plant, maybe not benefit but not be held back like Rock And Roll was in 75.. Thank You was another song I thought was great when Plant wasn't at his top (Phoenix 1970 perfect example).
  15. The Rain Song

    I'll try to toss my 2 cents in.. Best performance of Rain Song? Truly difficult to answer, but some favorite live performances (at this moment of time).. Vancouver 1975-03-20.. This is actually a long time favorite.. This is the one where everyone is ON. Tokyo 1972-10-02. Never really been a fan of the early performances of the Rain Song, but the very 1st performance varies the furthest from the original studio release making it a refreshing listen to say the least. Brussels 1980-06-20.. There is more to 1980 Zeppelin than Frankfurt and that botched Kashmir in Zurich... Earl's Court 1975-05-23..
