  1. Pat's Delight

    I think part of it has to do with the tone of the guitar being similar to Cream.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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).
  6. 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..
  7. Copenhagen 24.07.79 Oh yes!!

    Since I've Been Loving You. No Quarter. Ten Years Gone. Have always been the standouts to me.. Best ever? No.
  8. Best White Summers?

    I agree with this... I actually like that short performance on the studio album, it's very mesmerizing. But i do not like it live.. besides when it ended with Kashmir.
  9. New Mystery Soundboard?

    Not quite sure who to thank for this one, but I have not heard a soundboard + audience (matrix) recording like this since 1975-02-12 ~ New York.. Which has always been right below the professionally recorded shows of my list of best sound quality shows.. Heck, you have to actually listen with a good, solid stereo to tell it's not quite as good as TSRTS. http://starship.jpn.ph/zeppelin/beauty/disp/boot.jsp?R_idx=2457
  10. Kashmir - 1977-07-20 Tempe, AZ. Damn a soundboard recording of this show would be very interesting. I really like Bonzo's delayed intro on this one.

    Vancouver 1975-03-19.
  12. Ten Years Gone is an absolute pleasure to listen to from that show. One of my favorites.
  13. ^^ Yes, a better recording of LA '71 is a dream. That's one to remember that a poor recording is 100x better than no recording. However, I would rather see EV releasing LA 1971-08-21 (SBD) than Led Zeppelin.. I would imagine Thank You not being included (see HTWWW for example). I hate to believe that LA '71 wasn't recorded with the same equipment as Orlando 10 nights later.
  14. May 4, 1971?

    Another Gallows Pole performance!?!? That's what I love about them Zeppelin bootlegs.. I keep getting older, but they slowly keep on coming. Alright, alright, alright, alright. Thanks for sharing.. I'm oddly more excited about seeing the possibility of this show existing than I am to hear the Seattle soundboard.
  15. Bootlegs with the guitar on only one channel

    1973-01-22 ~ Southampton University, UK is exactly what you're looking for.
