  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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).
  5. 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..
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  11. Ten Years Gone is an absolute pleasure to listen to from that show. One of my favorites.
  12. ^^ 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Bootlegs with the guitar on only one channel

    1973-01-22 ~ Southampton University, UK is exactly what you're looking for.
  15. Hmm I think overall including the circumstances of the show being complete I must choose the legendary Royal Albert Hall performance on January 9, 1970.. For anyone who has never came across the recording of Jonsey's Organ Solo intro into Thank You from the RAH '70 show.. Keep in mind it's a 50 second clip, but be sure to listen on a decent stereo or good headphones to feel Bonzo's drums during the intro. http://starship.jpn.ph/zeppelin/mp3/m204-700109-LH-006-A07.mp3
  16. Just stole a mp3 copy of Tokyo Japan 1972/10/02 after previously dismissing the Japan '72 run besides that glorious performance of Thank You in Nagoya 1972/10/05. For being the very first live performance of the Rain Song, I must say what an absolute killer performance!? I have never cared to hear any '72 performances of the Rain Song, but this one is something else.. Love the way Plant sings the climatic section here. Glad to have added this show to my collection.. I must be getting close to 80 full shows by now (mp3 copies, that is). Also added Montreal 1972/06/07 to it yesterday and have a tough time not listening to that performance of Thank You.. That guitar solo is completely out of this world.. The extended pause between the end of the solo and when Plant comes in is something else.. Page and Plant are both at the very top of their game here, and makes it seem obvious of how this specific month is often claimed as Zeppelin's peak. However, I nearly end it in tears due to that f***ing cut. But at the very least, I will take this cut performance of Thank You wayyyy over no recording of it to begin with though! Also got the U.K. 1971/11/16 show (only other show with Gallows Pole performed full other than Copenhagen 1971/05/03), and still can't believe what a great one that is.. That performance of Gallows Pole as the encore is absolutely blistering!! Certainly one of the best recordings of Since I've Been Loving You as well! Oh also got another new one yesterday specifically to listen to today.. San Francisco 1973/06/02!! Can't believe I never had this one before.. Off to that now.
  17. The Blue Oyster Cult thread

    Ugh.. Half a life time ago I was offered a free ticket to see BÖC, and at the time I knew it, and still nearly 2 years later I know that was the best damn concert I have ever seen!! (I've attended nearly enough concerts to count on 1 hand..). But before the gig I was well aware of Burning For You, I believe from Joe Dirt haha. I purchased a used BÖC like a decade ago, but just never got into them.. However, I have listened to Godzilla probably 500 times since this performance in this video.. Seeing them in a small venue that fits 250 people, and only like 50 people in the pit area, which I was the last person down there allowing me to rest my hells on the last step down there which allowed me to rise about 12" above everyone else making me nearly 7' tall giving me perfect visual of the entire band... It was a great night! Since then I was able to pick up a copy of their Spectres LP used for $4.. That's actually a Promo Copy
  18. 1972 and 1973 Shows

    I must add San Diego '73. A partial soundboard recording is available for this one, and dispite the cuts throughout it we still get a pretty damn good show. Very enjoyable to say the least.
  19. Since I've Been Loving You has always been known to have been a hassle for Jimmy to be satisfied with the solo.. And to be convinced Bonzo's squeaking pedal wasn't too distracting from the song... Bonzo had some trouble with the timing on Stairway To Heaven, directly before the solo.. Clearly heard on the fantastic rough mixes of the song, that were somehow dismissed while releasing some silly Sunset Sound Mix..
  20. I've been trying to get into early Zeppelin for a while but the sound quality of most of the '69 concerts are quite poor and difficult to really enjoy a full show. The other day I got a hold of this concert and gave it a couple listens and damn! It's pretty dang good! Such a weird setlist: As Long As I Have You- I Can't Quit You Baby- The Train Kept A Rollin'- Babe I'm Gonna Leave You- Dazed And Confused- Killing Floor- For Your Love. A simple 7 song performance which was freaking amazing! I always thought As Long As I Have You and For Your Love were just some short songs not worth listening to, but dang these are 2 solid tracks (12 and 7 minute tracks) which you can hear where Jimmy started developing riffs for later songs. I believe this is the earliest performance we have a copy of, besides Spokane 12/30/68. They really remind me of live Jimi Hendrix here, I think it's Page's guitar tone and his energy.. I think Page should clean this up and release it officially in the future, it's a very great show with some rare tunes. I find this to be as enjoyable or more than the Paris Olympia 10/10/69 show released on Zep I companion disc. Anyway.. Was How Many More Times or any other songs performed at this concert that we don't have a copy of? Are there any other bootlegs from '69 better or as good as this, besides the April San Francisco shows? Please feel free to share any thoughts, pics, or anything else about this show. And I apologize if anyone else created a thread about this years ago
  21. --- After listening to and enjoying the spectacular MSG 2/12/75 performance a month earlier for quite some time, I stumbled across this beautiful performance in sunny California. Completely different vibe from a snowy cold New York night to a nice warm California evening... --- It seems like many fans dismiss the majority of '75 performances besides Earl's Court 5/24-5/25, which I also did for years until I realized the sound quality for many of these shows is ALMOST as excellent as TSRTS, these are some really great concerts to listen to in general, and Plant's voice may have been pretty bad towards the start of the tour but was pretty good by March and IMHO he sounded better on material from HOTH and PG then if he had his '69 voice. I really wonder why Page doesn't release this concert or MSG 2/12/75 officially, they are both pretty good shows in excellent quality, which require very few modifications if any! --- Anyway the reason why I decided to post this is because I wanted to share this wonderful concert with other fans who may have dismissed this show in the past or have forgot about it. --- I have a question myself: Everything I have seen has said this concert was only recorded as an audience recording which I don't believe because the recording I have definitely is soundboard quality, it sounds much clearer than LA '77 shows and has very little audience noise. So if the copy you have is audience I must say there is a new soundboard copy that exists that sounds perfect! --- Highlights of the show: Excellent performance of Rain Song, Kashmir (Jonsey had the mellotron turned up on this track), No Quarter, Stairway To Heaven (best version in '75 IMHO), Whole Lotta Love > The Crunge (I THINK this may be the fullest live version of The Crunge which was pretty dang groovy) --- Please feel free to share any thoughts, comments, pictures, or video, (if any exists which probably doesn't), also list any similar shows that you think were better around this era, and of course please tell us if you happened to attend this wonderful show. --- P.S. I wish I could tell you which boot I have of this, but I downloaded of it for free and the only information it had was 'Led Zeppelin Long Beach CA. 11.3.1975-Song Title' I have tried comparing it with other boots of this concert, but have yet to find a complete match. Long Beach 03/11/1975!!!!! Keep on rocking friends!
  22. I highly doubt the band would have chose to print the full lyrics of Stairway To Heaven on one side of the 4th albums inner sleeve if they had no meaning.. I would say it's simply about one's hope of finding their Stairway To Heaven.. Which is simply a metaphor for one's hope of finding their path to happiness. Which many of us can often take the wrong path, but their is always a chance to redeem ourselves and get back to the path we are supposed to be on. The lyrics also go into detail, which was mentioned earlier in this thread that the path to happiness (or metaphorically speaking, to heaven) isn't something that can just be bought.
  23. At the moment, enjoying Kashmir live at the LA Forum (March 27, 1975). I really need to get the other 2 LA shows already, but always feel like I would always pick this one because of the killer addition of Since I've Been Loving You... However that cut in the Rain Song is horrid.. I love listening to '75 audience tapes. After so many brickwalled soundboards that start to sound the same after a while it's very enjoyable hearing the other side.
  24. pink floyd

    I want to get a copy of Dark Side Of The Moon on either CD or LP, preferably LP, but we all know how much more that cost... Before I go out and pick up a copy I checked out Amazon to see what prices to expect, and the album is available on LP, but I seen 'Preorder Now - Release Date: November 4, 2016' then I seen the exact same thing on the website of a local record shop, BUT I can't find a damn bit of information.. Haven't spent endless hours searching or anything, but what is this all about..? If they are releasing a remastered version of the album, then I guess it's a hell of a time to randomly desire the album.. I have had a copy of the album on my iPod for ages as my dad has a copy on CD forever, which I went to listen to after several years and the CD looks just like any of his CDs that he listened to often lol and I somehow lost the copy on my iPod so i am definitely needing a copy in the next day or 2... I was reading, ehh I think it may have been a review on Amazon that said something about a version of the album including the full album performed live back in the 70's.. I would always love to have something like that if it doesn't become a fiasco searching for it.
  25. The Metallica Thread

    I was roaming around Walmart yesterday evening and took a glance through the cds and noticed all the classic Metallica albums on the top display above the rest.. Noticed immediately that both Kill 'Em All and Ride The Lightning were packaged in what appears to be mini LP replicas of the original albums, which are Metallica's 2016 remasters, which seem to be following Zeppelin's 2014 remasters.. Without the noce option of perhaps a 2-3cd deluxe release of the original albums plus a cd of demo tracks and possibly a live CD.. But their deluxe box sets look f***ing wicked!! Way out of my budget.. Well I have never in my life have purchased 1 freaking Metallica album so I figured why the heck not pick up a copy of Ride The Lightning (2016 cd remaster) for only $5!!! However I have been drooling over purchasing a copy on vinyl since I seen it at a record shop recently, but shoot for $5 for the cd, I wouldn't feel stupid paying another $20 for a copy on vinyl sometime in the future when budget may allow.. Anyway, I have had a copy of all the golden era Metallica albums on my iPod for years as a friend of mine let me borrow his copies wayyy back.. I have always loved the music, but have rather grown tired of it over the years.. I excitedly ripped the plastic off the album the second I got to my car and popped in my first ever Metallica album into my cd player and had a 30 minute ass kicking drive until I unfortunately made it to my destination.. Got to finish Fade To Black anyway.. Got the other half to listen to going back soon.. I was absolutely astonished by the quality of the remaster while listening to it.. Absolutely superb sound quality, absolutely superb packaging.. You can easily see they took some pages out of Jimmy Page's notes, but added some fantastic things of their own as well! I guess they have yet to release Master Of Puppets and so on as they just released the first 2 albums in April 2016.. But I'm going to put $5 to the side today I will run into Walmart once again for a copy of the 2016 remaster of Kill 'Em All, and will continue building a completely new collection of albums that I will cherish for years to come... Cant wait to get home and blast The Four Horsemen on my cd player today.. I'm going to enjoy both albums all the way through nice and loud!! Just an FYI.. It sucks to say, but these mini vinyl replicas are very often found in slightly damaged sleeves.. I unfortunately have learned that throughout purchasing each deluxe edition cd of the Zeppelin catalog.. I gently looked at each copy of the album in stock and selected the best one.. Wish I would have taken my copy of The Complete BBC Sessions back as the packaging was certainly not up to par with my standards, but oh well.. It taught me a great lesson that I already put to use..
