    New "Song Remains The Same" 2CD/4LP/3DVD Deluxe Set

    I see the Amazon price is now $218. It's on Importcds for $176. Getting more palatable. https://www.importcds.com/song-remains-the-same/603497859405

    Thanks, mate. A work in progress. 😎

    And honestly, what's the deal with the first 2 DVD's in the not-so-super deluxe box set? It's 2018 for crying out loud. Who the hell wants the movie on DVD instead of Blu-ray?

    The completist in me would, of course, like to own this release but $250 is pretty salty. I already own TSRTS on vinyl and the movie on Bluray. It will almost certainly be available for hi-res MQA streaming over Tidal like the rest of the re-issues. Hell, I've even made my own 12 x 12 print for display. I might have to pass on this release unless the price drops dramatically, as in 40-50% off.
  5. I think it has something to do with acknowledging your source material. Similar in a sense to Zeppelin themselves losing some respect by omitting the sources of their early blues songs at times and being sued later for royalty payments. Heart and GVF are admitted Zeppelin fanatics. When Heart cribbed the ALS drum pattern or covered Rock and Roll, you kinda knew they were doing it out of respect. Same with GVF because they admit as much. I read an interview with the guitarist of Kingdom Come way back when and he said that he had barely ever heard any of Jimmy Page's playing. He said that he was more influenced by Hendrix and others, I believe. Now, some rock guitarists might not be heavily influenced by Page but to say that they have never heard his work....that's kind of a stretch. Especially when your album is a second-rate Zeppelin knock-off. As you wrote, maybe it was something they said. Not to mention, nothing on their album was as good as Still of the Night.
  6. I agree with this perspective. A Zeppelin-like album to me would represent one that is not afraid to jump all over the place with different styles and experiments without losing the hard-hitting, bluesy influence. I'd throw The White Stripes' Icky Thump out there as an example. Jack White is willing to throw a lot at the wall to see what sticks in the same way that Zeppelin did. More of the spirit of Zeppelin as opposed to slavish imitation.
  7. I wasn't suggesting that GVF were anything close to Led Zeppelin in quality. I just meant that they were the latest to try.
  8. Greta Van Fleet's From the Fires EP is the latest. At least, they acknowledge that they're trying to sound like Zeppelin unlike others who've pretended that the similarities were just a coincidence.
  9. If your components are hooked up with an HDMI cable, you should be good to go. Just make sure that the audio track on the disc menu is set to DTS-HD. Some discs default to PCM stereo.
  10. So the Super Deluxe Boxed Set comes with a DVD in Dolby Digital surround instead of the Bluray in DTS-HD Master Audio? WTF? Not so super or deluxe, in my opinion.

    Parents Comments About Zeppelin

    I got into Zeppelin during my high school years in the mid-80's. My mom loved Rock and Roll but really didn't favor the acoustic stuff like Gallows Pole or Battle of Evermore. I think my dad just felt that it was all less gay than Prince.

    Selling all 2014-2017 remaster deluxe cd

    I can understand this. I play the hi-res download files and the vinyl albums from the deluxe box sets but I've never played the CD's. I only keep them to keep the sets in complete form but they'll probably never be used.

    Five pictures of Jimmy in a box... £7000?

    That's the chance you take when you let Rosco P, Coltrane steal your thunder. Suddenly, you're left holding onto your CB radio handset in a smartphone world.

    BBC sessions deluxe out September 16!!!!

    Another strange annoyance about the deluxe box set. I went to frame the numbered print for display along with the prints from all the other sets. For some reason, the BBC print is cut at 12.5" x 12.5" (actual album cover size) compared to 12" x 12" like all the other prints. I had a frame left over after mounting the other prints and obviously wanted to use that frame for the sake of convenience and uniformity. The BBC print will not fit in the frame without trimming the edges. Again, a minor complaint but a strange decision in compiling the box set.

    BBC sessions deluxe out September 16!!!!

    Minor gripe but I'm a little perplexed as to why they changed the design of the deluxe box set. The box itself is somewhat less attractive than the previous ones and they downgraded to a paperback book. Minor details, of course, but it doesn't make much sense to change the presentation after 9 releases.
