  1. Companion discs are rubbish

    Yes. Certified and on day release only. So what's your excuse?
  2. Companion discs are rubbish

    Luxury! Beatles fans have two unreleased tracks - Not Guilty and What's The New Mary Jane. Both are crap. There is nothing else - Leave My Kitten Alone and Lend Me Your Comb are on the BBC discs. I was quite surprised at the quality of the extras disc in the Sgt Pepper re-release but the songs are pretty much just works in progress or different mixes. The Zeppelin extras discs had enough material that had not evolved into released versions, some quite significantly different. Personally I wish that Jimmy had included bootlegged material as with remastering, I believe that the average fan would have been delighted and the committed fans like us would also have been delighted. Sadly, I don't hold out hope for an Earls Court release as it would take Jimmy at least 20 years to to cut and paste between all five nights, including a few seconds here, a few seconds there, until he was satisfied. Still, what we have is not too bad quality so I'd be ok with that if we never see an official release.
  3. YOUR favorite of N.A. 1977

    April 27th, Cleveland has always rocked my boat with EVSD's Maximum Destroyer being my choice. Always a great listen.
  4. For me, the 27th is a toss up between EVSD's Deep Striker and Mike The Mike (Winston Remaster). Both are excellent releases.
  5. Favorite opening song?

    I've read opinions that say that TSRTS should not have been the opener as the band really needed to be warmed up to play that complex song. I love the song but they did struggle a number of times with it coming in cold so to speak.
  6. Favorite opening song?

    The Immigrant Song/Heartbreaker double was the peak for me. When Plant had to switch to a song like R&R to lead off, I think that Sick Again was not a good choice for second song - for me it lacks the excitement that Heartbreaker has. I would have preferred a R&R/Over The Hills And Far Away combo to open with. Jimmy had great fun with Heartbreaker after Immigrant Song and OTHAFA is also a great Jimmy number. Sick Again lacks that 'something' to make a one-two punch really effective. Just my opinion of course.
  7. Just found a copy of 06-28-1972 'Neath The Arizona Skies, Tucson. I have a couple of releases that are not that great but 'A Group Personal Project' have really done a great job and made it very listenable and enjoyable. Lineage: "Crashing Revelry", (EVSD), Trader CD-R > EAC, Secure Mode, Accurate Stream, No Disable Cache > WAV > Remaster > Flac Frontend, Encoding Options, Level.8, Align On Sector Boundaries > Flac (from the info file).
  8. Moonchild - Winston remasters new label?

    Been looking at some of the Moonchild offers and whilst they are typically $15, shipping is also $15 (from Japan I think), so they work out at $30 a pop. May just been the particular offers I looked at though.
  9. Jimmy Page Vs Robbie Williams

    Where's Liam when you need him?
  10. Any time now.....

    I do believe he would have realized that putting such a cryptic message on his website would certainly lead to immense speculation re Zeppelin. He is not a stupid man. I do not believe he would have put any such message just for a new album from him, the message has too much of a portentous feel. Until he definitely says it's not Zeppelin related then I will continue to believe the hype.
  11. New EV DVD collection

    Well, the remastered Earls Court footage on the DVD set in 2003 looked and sounded great so a complete remastered DVD/Blu_Ray release of Earls Court is not impossible. It would certainly make a great package along with an audio release - like they did with Celebration. One can only live in hope. :-)

    If nothing else, this and the 'Any time now......' message on Plant's site does make the heart beat just a little bit faster.
  13. For what turned out to be their final Forum gig, it was quite awesome - one of my top nights - Winston's being my preference.
  14. MSG 1973-07-28, The Effect Is Shattering (EVSD) - great show and great quality recording.
  15. Seattle 1977, Bad recording or bad performance?

    Now you've got me. I need to check what sources I have and if necessary I'll look for some audience ones. Thanks for the heads-up.
