  1. Hampton 1971

    "Trickier than a robbers dog" LOL." I usually go with the Collectors Review site but AA has proved reliable on inquiries. Passing on this one. Flagge is very hard to find but it is the definitive issue IMHO. Godfather is a let down but if adjust your EQ you can enjoy it.
  2. What show or live song are you listening to now?

    Thank you Sue. I really like your ear. Not in a Van Gogh way but you know what I mean. You should really "go for it". I can see your tapes being popular on a larger scale. TY
  3. What show or live song are you listening to now?

    Wow, I find the notion of doing my own Mixed or Masters intriguing but I can barely boot up. So , I ll just stick to listening to these and the others. I think they are great!! Would downloading them for personal listening be OK ?
  4. What show or live song are you listening to now?

    Just finished Texas 8/31/69. What a show. Jimmy is on fire!! Godfather is a great tape but I listen to The Nobs version more often. I m not sure on the sourcing but it sounds as good as Texas Blues and Texas International Pop by Liquid Led but less clicking. Whiskey A Go Go up next!! 1969 is short on material but Plants voice is just insane. And Jimmy is just so fluid and tight. JPJ s bass sound never sounded better. Did he use the Rickenbacher in 69 or maybe a fuzz effect? The lows on the bass tracks really sound incredible.
  5. 9/14/71 Berkeley Definitive version

    Cashmere did a 24 bit remaster California Expedition , I prefer it over Godfather. I have the TMOQ Vinyl rip , Going to California and if it's any indication that Vinyl must sound good. These are two worthwhile Net Rips. Zeppelin was incredible in 71. Cashmere did 2 incredible releases and poof !?

  7. Winston Remasters list

    No ,I'm Jim always been. Fanbased projects can be absolutely great. I have so many obscure fan tapes that sound great. And are considered "Definitive" in my collection.Particularly some from 69-72. IMHO Winston and Liquid Led are in a league of their own. I have all of them ( I think ?). Downloaded with Art. Worth a million bucks to me. But they should always be free and appreciated To sell their product is scummy. Godfather is one of my favorite Labels . I am collecting the entire run. Some of their titles cannot be called " Definitive". But so many can. I just added " A Celebration For..." . I have been doing a fair amount of buying of late. Some of the purchases are for my buddy's shop. if I think he can make money on something I come across on Discog I buy it. For my personal collection I bought among others Cashmere's Remains of the Holy. The seller was Porgie66. You ? If so thank you. The Godfather set " A Celebration..." was particularly sweet. I thought it would be the hardest one to find in NM MINT. Shameless request: I need both Berkeley shows to complete my run. If anyone has them for sale I will pay a premium. I would also like to upgrade my Welcome Home boxed set.

  9. Definitive Blueberry Hill

    I agree with EAPs Blueberry Hill being the definitive version of that show. Before that I listened to Winston's " The Great Love Affair" and before that TMOQs take on the show. EAP and Graf Zeppelin have been releasing some of the best boots I've heard . The later Godfather titles can also be included in that statement. Zepster was good enough to explain how these companies are focusing on quality and an authentic sound. As I stated in other posts I like to buy as many boots as I can for my collection . I recently purchased Graf's Fractured Ribs, it's a " raw " SBD of Texas 5/18/73. Graf also used the fragment from the 5/16 show to finish off the show since the 5/18/73 encores are not on the SBD. I LOVE the raw sound and wonder if this is what a bonafide low generation SBD tape sounds like ? Edit to say I agree Hampton 71 is awful. Hoping that Graf ( or anyone) can do that one some justice. It's a great fragment.
  10. New Mystery Soundboard?

    I'd love the Birmingham 77 Board to drop . I was hoping for the Philly 75 Board. But there is something to be said about being excited for "New Zep". Love it.
  11. Favorite instrumentals on companion discs

    Thank you. I was aware that Jimmy wrote SRS with the intention of it being an instrumental. They played it a lot in Japan and it seemed the band was unsure of a title for the song. To my knowledge it was never played live without a vocal....too bad, it would have been cool. I do remember reading (Steven Davis' Book ?) that when Plant heard the instrumental he quickly got lyrics together for the track. Lyrically it's not Plants best effort but I wouldn't call them bad. If I had to guess it would probably be the sped up vocal. Is anyone else able to shed light on this?
  12. Favorite instrumentals on companion discs

    I can't say I dislike any of the instrumentals. However, I have enjoyed the Song Remains The Same the most. IMO, I think it would have better as an instrumental prelude to Rain Song. The sped up vocal is a bit nasal sounding. I often play the instrumental in place of the album track. This is interesting. What was Plant's regret ? The lyric or the vocal, or both ? Personally, I feel the vocal leaves something to be desired. The sped up tape makes it sound a bit nasal. Lyrically the song is very good but I never got how SRS and Rain Song "fit" together. Jimmy's guitar part is incredible especially on the new albums it just rings so clearly but the Bass line is another wonder all its own . Easily some of JPJs best studio playing.
  13. Do I Have All The Essential Bootlegs?

    Thank you ! I just found Dusseldorf 1970 on the Reel Masters Label. I had a Source 2 copy of this show. The Reel Masters is Source 4 and a tremendous upgrade. I am going to try to locate this tape and purchase it, An under rated gem ! It's 133 minutes and my previous copy was missing Since I've Been Loving You. The pre album versions are great. Thank you, I believe this has to be the definitive tape.
  14. Do I Have All The Essential Bootlegs?

    I like your list. It's not filled with the usual suspects. Despite Earls Court, Vancouver Montreux etc. being must haves I like to see that people are enjoying some of the great Audience Recordings. What would you say is the definitive version/ label for the Düsseldorf 70 show. I ripped one from the web that is Net Sourced (possibly but I forgot the origin. This was sampling a handful. My "boot ears" are pretty tolerant but Im wondering if there is something that would be more enjoyable and easier on the ears..
  15. Off drugs and feeling well

    Hi Sam, My name is Jim. I have a daughter who was diagnosed with Aspergers. From the time she was 2 years old I noticed she was not like my other children. At 17 she was finally diagnosed properly. It was so hard for us and a heavy price was paid by all. I was often traveling for my uncle, and for a time, 100% incommunicado during my time in captivity . I won't go in to my story. But my wife fought most of the battle and never gave up.My daughter Marissa or Rissi had been through hell. Loaded with uneccesary Meds for multiple diagnosis' , alienated by her siblings and peers even institutionalized for 6 months and 14 days. That's a condensed version. I blamed my wife. Rissi is extremely intelligent and in addition is dyslexic. But as a child and pre - pubescent teen so many labels were put on her. When I came back to the States one of my Docs recommended Rissi see one of his Associates. Rissi was diagnosed with Aspergers. Although she was found to be high functioning her socialization and coping skills were that of a five year old. It was a long road. She was taken of all her meds, some required weening. She is 24 now, living independently , owns her own car , is a store manager for Alta cosmetics and is planning an eventual move to Texas (because she can, no tax either) . She will buy a home and continue to lead a productive life. Socialization came the hardest. But one day I received a call from my wife and was told Rissi made a friend. I cried (deep soul cry) for over a half hour. My wife , God Bless Her, never quit and fought EVERY step of the way while having to deal with me and my issues. I wish I knew now what I didn't know then (yes, it's a popular song but expresses my feelings perfectly). We are best of friends. But it's not about that. The persistence of the mothers love for her daughter.... Never stop fighting and moving forward. My wife is "the expert" but feel free to drop me a line for anything at all. I have skipped a lot of this story. But I have learned that any type of pity, bitterness, anger or regret will only impede your path. It's a a marathon not a sprint. Good Luck.
