  1. Pretty disrespectful if you ask me. Not at all necessary. Page promised live releases. People were expecting physical copies, which is not unreasonable. Also, perhaps some people are a little more ‘old fashioned’ than yourself and not as tech savvy. Hardly unreasonable, given that Zeppelin finished in 1980. There are better ways to express your point of view

    Led Zeppelin to do a Live streaming service

    I just had a thought. Pretty obvious question....but they will charge for the streaming, right? if they didn’t would this get around the need to pay royalties....and hence leave the shows intact?

    BBC Sessions Appreciation

    Dead right. In particular IS sounds terrible. It’s all bass

    Led Zeppelin to do a Live streaming service

    Yeah mate. Where there’s a will there’s a way. The official line will be that it’s not downloadable....but there are some very smart IT savvy people out there. I’ll be investing in a turntable/stereo system soon (an extra man-cave I mean room will be added to the house over the next year). I’ll then start collecting vinyl. Is there such a thing as a stereo system that will play vinyl that also has Bluetooth capabilities (to link to the laptop)? I’m not very savvy with stuff like this
  5. 10 days to go. I cannot wait. Can somebody please advise where I can buy the Eelgrass version when it is released. I would buy the EV version, but have no doubt I will be priced out of the probable 24 CD package!

    Tea For One

    If there’s a topic on this already, I can’t find it! Anyway. I know this is a song that polarises opinion. I was just listening to it on my Saturday morning bike ride. I nearly skipped it. But I just couldn’t. The reason? It’s a terrific song. I think the one word I would use to describe it is “Hypnotic”. Are there people that really hate this song? Why? I think it’s a great close to a terrific album

    Happy 50th Anniversary

    Great post. Could not have put it better myself....except for saying thanks for making some hard times bearable. And thanks for inspiring me to pick up a guitar. That day I rifled through my dads vinyl and picked out Led Zep II had a big impact

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

    It won’t be as good as the Heywood version, so I’m not bothering at all

    1975 -1977 recordings,

    The way I’ve always viewed it is that given the soundboards are so bad for 77, we’re bloody lucky to have the Millard recordings. There are many people that hanker for the LA soundboards to be released so we can have matrix tapes. But for the life of me, I can’t see that they would add anything to already terrific recordings
  12. I’m prepared to wait for the drop in price in the EV one. If I manage to get a torrent before I buy it, it won’t stop me buying it. I’ll put it to one side and the kids can get it for me for Christmas

    1975 -1977 recordings,

    This is a good source as well https://zoso.me/2017/08/16/1977-sources/ I have to say, your original assessment is the same as mine. I've listened to all of the 77 boards out there and i just can't stand'em. Winston and others have done a really good job getting the best out of them....but i still prefer the audience recordings. My 77 listening is generally restricted to the LA dates (check out the 'Mike the Mike' Winston remasters for the 21, 23, 25 and 27th of June)....although a lot of people also like the audience recording from New York (11th June 77) and Cleveland (28/4/77). Cheers
  14. Hi mate. How long does it normally take the Eelgrass release to come out after EV release theirs?
  15. Yep, with you on this Steve. I hope you’re well by the way. I’m going to take the plunge and buy this one I think. It’s juat a question of when. I may have to wait for the Eelgrass version to be released - I will either buy that, or buy the EV version if the price comes down. All of the other shows from 71 only have 2/3 of the show on the soundboard. I really do hope that this one has the full show. This really is the holy grail for me. I can’t wait
  16. I cannot fucking wait!!! @duckmanlet’s hope it’s the full show and they changed the reels
  17. If this is just a release of Thank You, could this possibly debunk your theory that they they only have 2/3 of the show on SB? I.e they have songs from the beginning (IS), the middle (Friends) and the end (Thank You). The more I think about the message the more I think it will be another single release - Thank You. Why wouldn’t they? The demand is there for this particular show. I just think they would be losing potential sales by releasing it all in one go. If they did release it in one hit, I will definitely buy....unless they do something daft like like package it up with a myriad of alternative sources that I just don’t want...which will push the price beyond my means. In which case I will buy the eelgrass. For me, this show is a holy grail. I love it. If I got this on a sb, I would be happy to never get another new boot. Mind you, I say that now. No doubt I would be thirsting for more next year!
  18. Hi. Do you have any additional info on the 929 release aside from what was on airraid and mentioned on this forum?

  20. Gday Steve and thanks for the heads up. Better get saving. If this is the full show I’m buying!!

    Which shows do we know were multitracked?

    I was listening to this on my bike with headphones on....so I assume that this is why we have the drums in the left channel? So it’s definitely not a multitrack? I’ve got the Dadgad remaster for this. He’s done a good job but it’s still a bit tinny. Any views on the definitive for this? I reckon it’s this that will get released...but I can’t see Page releasing As Long As I Have You. Wasn’t the performance recorded by the BBC in 71 two track?
