  1. Does anyone know which shows were multitracked? Of course all the official releases were multitracked, but was Paris 10/10/1969 (Led Zeppelin I Companion Disc) multitracked or did Jimmy just lower his ridiculously high standards to a soundboard recording then remaster it to the highest quality? Are those recordings found on Disc 1 of BBC Sessions multitracked as well as the 30 minute amazing video of Denmark '69 by chance? I suppose if Paris '69 was not multitracked then that opens a lot of hope for future live recordings since afterall there were only so many shows that they did multitrack. I do know that my favorite show was multitracked ~ Southampton University - January 22, 1973. I apologize if this has already been a topic, but I looked around briefly and didn't see anything like this. Also, feel free to post shows that are believed to have been multitracked as well.

    Future Page Releases?

    I'm ready for some remastered companion audio already.

    Weakest Studio Album Opening Track

    Hmm this is a bit tough when thinking about what song on the album would have made a better opener. The other 6 songs on ITTOD would have made very awkward openers, Wearing & Tearing would have been the only other option but In The Evening is a perfect opener with the extended moment before a classic Page riff. I'll have to say For Your Love would been a better opener on Presence.
  4. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we get Celebration Day Remastered for the 50th anniversary release.
  5. This is something I have thought about before, for the benefit of showing others how great Zeppelin was live which breaking out Eddie or Blueberry Hill just doesn't work with most people as heavy bass driven, overly produced is what many people tend to listen to.. Enjoying Eddie or Blueberry Hill takes a serious listen for anyone who has never heard a bootleg before. That being said, I must 2nd Paul's suggestion of Houston '77 making for a solid release. Not saying Houston '77 is the best show ever, but between the performance and sound quality it's amongst the most enjoyable shows IMHO. Frankfurt 1980..? Some may find this a silly answer, but I find it a lot easier to get through Frankfurt '80 than Dallas '75.. The only moment I get bored throughout Frankfurt is during White Summer, which allows me time to roll a J before... Montreux '70.. How is this not an official release? A compilation of the '71 NA Tour would be possible between Hampton and Orlando. My own compilation of Royal Albert Hall & Vancouver '70 (Heartbreaker, SIBLY, & Thank You to complete the setlist) would also work. But if Jimmy took this route he better tell us upfront that those 3 tracks are from Vancouver '70 rather than us finding out after buying it lol.

    My cover of Thank You

    Trying to be bring my A game here, but perfection is left for the professionals.

    My cover of Thank You

    Haha not quite as bad as getting booed on stage, I would imagine.. I have a feeling I will experience that someday if I ever dare get on stage! Anyway, thank you.
  8. 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.

    Favorite HMMT performance?

    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!?!?
  11. 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.

    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..
  14. 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.
  15. 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.

    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

    Pat's Delight

    I think part of it has to do with the tone of the guitar being similar to Cream.
  18. nick2632

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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..
  23. nick2632

    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.
  24. nick2632

    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.

    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
