  1. I seem to be missing the graphs and pie charts?
  2. Well put, I can't fault any on that. Hendrix is allways the one topic that I find most interesting in these kind of debates. With Page I almost find I'm willing him on during his playing like a high wire act. It adds to the tension. with the vaitranis I'm sort of listening to how easy they make it sound . Compare EVH and the kinks version of you really got me cos that just about sums it up for me
  3. if every track on each companion audio disk was a new "previously unreleased" song, then would it be companion audio to the original, or would it be a bonus disk or separate album ?
  4. Ahmet's wife, if your reading this, ask him again would you.
  5. This certainly would be the event that most would dream of happening. even if it was total crap I'd still be happy that we would finally have the answer and the actual full stop to all this and we could all move on band members included.
  6. Sadly there will be a time where in the absence of anything new it will be 100% speculation.
  7. ITTOD is the only super deluxe I ain't got (yet) I've got the BBC one but not unwrapped it yet (Christmas) . I suppose I should complete the set but I'm struggling with this album at the moment. I saw a clip of page and plant doing "in the evening" with part of carouselambra in the middle it was bloody awesome. Would have loved this at the o2 instead of the "rock and roll"
  8. Yeah I'm hoping. I'd like some of the later songs live on official release.
  9. I suspect there might be a tiny amount of speculation mixed in too.
  10. Imho I reckon Bob would have been up for it if page had provided him with some genuinely original material, something new. Something worthy. We know plant doesn't mind singing the zeppelin songs most of his act is doing just that. I think the ball has been in pages court to produce the goods . It's clear A never ending tour repeating the classics is out of the question. Plant has said that it has to be fresh a new for him to engage. In some ways I think it's pages only chance to get back out there and do it justice. But the bar is incredibly high now. Having said that I though embryo 1 and 2 had some bloody potential.
  11. I think the concept is quite simple. remastered Album plus the same album but viewed from a different perspective. the artwork says it all. Original album cover and then a sort of inversion of the colours for the second disc but in effect both discs share the same concept at their core. You couldn't have one without the other. Perhaps we shouldn't consider the tracks individually so much as being a complete album. imho I think what page has done here has added to and given further colour and illustration to the core of each of these albums in a very considered and artistic way. I think what's been done is completely unique . It also shows that he still has the eye and ear for it. Who knows he may have even made something this clever out of the very little remaining. Or there may be more concepts to come....
  12. Having listened to my dads 1 to 4 zepp vinyls, a couple of years later I managed to muster enough cash to get the "remasters" crop circle compilation when it came out. I then realised there were more albums than just the first 4 so I started to collect em all starting with II
  13. Yeah! I was delighted with houses companion disc too. It did take a couple of listens but I did start to notice more and more in it . Found OTHAFA particularly interesting
  14. Having said that . Had these albums somehow not happened but we still had the world we have today I could see everyone of them being very well received indeed. Say a new band did zep 1 now. still as incredible now as it was then
  15. could the albums have manifested in reverse order without everything else in the universe devolving rather than evolving also? Surely these albums are the sum of all the interact able light cones at that place and time. Or something or other, IMHO of course!
