  1. This perfectly sums it up. Thanks for posting
  2. Why Zep Were Never Truly Recreated

    Totally agree. Generating a commodity , volume over value
  3. Why Zep Were Never Truly Recreated

    I remember a time when not everyone I met listened to music in fact I remember people actually stating with pride that music was not for them or was of no consequence and half of of those that claimed to listen couldn’t actually hear anything for trying. Where have all the non listeners gone? It seams to me that everyone is a “music” fan now, after all, everyone has virtually all the music ever on there phones! Next thing all this lot are fast becoming music creators! It’s like The markets got bigger but the talent pool has got smaller?
  4. Why Zep Were Never Truly Recreated

    GVF have noticed something they like from the “old days” . Who hasn’t? i doubt I’ll be queuing up on record store day in 50 years to buy an alternate mix of whatever from GVF and not just because I’ll be 104
  5. How about an acoustic reunion?

    Agree, would be great! But be over the moon if they went with a total analogue recording chain on the old gear. It was part of the sound
  6. Maybe there’s more couple more singles to come? Last of the “ interesting” alt mixes .
  7. As far as complications go, would it make sense to do a “latter days” only Comp or chronology ? It Might if you wanted to document live versions of the later tracks and only parts of the later shows were spectacular?
  8. Yeah all these would be great but i reckon there will only be 4 or 5 items in all. Just think there will be staggered at approx 2 year intervals and maybe anymore would be, dare I say it, too many live albums!!!
  9. 10 years worth! My guess is four or five further releases. I’ll assume EC is one of em. Not sure about the others.
  10. How about an acoustic reunion?

    Going on RPs comments about acoustic material. I think an acoustic approach is the most likely of all the unlikely scenarios. Suspect it’s also the most likely scenario where something new might occur IMHO acoustic doesn’t have to mean without power or mean running through all the zeppelin songs in a row, straight bat, that have acoustic guitars in them. It might just mean low key, no cavernous ice rinks. There’s a lot of possibilities. These guys are artists.

    Oh yeah duh! Would that be different to the download? Maybe surround sound?

    Dude. Why come on here and post that. Even if it were true no one could possibly take it seriously. A mega fan and this is your first time on here?
  13. Wow. That’s interesting! It would be very interesting to contrast the yardbirds 68 with zeppelin 68 , that’s quite a story . How about some studio sketches or unreleased, assuming there are any, zeppelin doing “for your love” for example,as the companion disc.
  14. Looks like we are expecting some live zeppelin recordings as releases for the 50th and not expecting any further live performances by the band. 2007 seemed more like a return than a fair well and with the remasters building on the tension The question of “what next” seems likely to continue to be asked. But where is the bookend? What would be the right way to draw it to a close? Not that I want it to ever end but you know... I allways liked what Jeff Lynn did with the remaining Beatles on “free as a bird” and “real love” . Maybe some drums tracks remain . Perhaps somethings could be finished off. Maybe something new, an EP of sorts.
  15. What next? AGAIN

    I’m hoping it’s not just HTWWW that’s now different because it on vinyl. I mean I like HTWWW but it’s not fresh enough
  16. ITTOD

    I notice how during the page and plant project they would use parts of the latter half of carolselambra as the middle section of ITE. Pure genius . Had things been different I suspect this idea might have become a standard live set piece.
  17. What next? AGAIN

    Yes, I quite like the vocal too, so for me it was totally worth adding it in. It’s another zeppelin track to enjoy that otherwise wouldn’t have been and this before “free as bird” . Also really enjoy this as an instrumental, its a complete powerhouse. Still think it’s highly unlikely that other stuff would be revisited.
  18. What next? AGAIN

    Yeah. Im just wondering if putting three or so live albums out in a year, together with full concert video might be too much ! ....then again...no. Can’t possibly have too much zeppelin!
  19. What next? AGAIN

    Other possibility is an expanded “DVD” with extra footage, snippets say from bath, EC and others? To compliment any audio live releases. Put any remaining bits of video together where there might not be enough for a stand alone release Plus would love to see DVD available via iTunes or similar
  20. Never seen zeppelin, would I rather have the memories or the recordings? As far as I’m concerned having either is really cool , boths a dream

    It might be my limited imagination but...Well I’m guessing a condensed compilation of the photos and sequencing of, from the super deluxe books plus some more, slightly differing presentation of em. Question for me is what further information would another photo book Provide? Why do it? I notice that in the announcement a point is made that they are all collaborating on it..
  22. What next? AGAIN

    I remember a comment by page in one of the interviews where he mentioned not releasing what had already been bootlegged. Didn’t he go ahead and release some bootlegged stuff anyway, such as “Jennings farm”? Or was the companion audio version recording of it not bootlegged? I think he was also asked if any tinkering had gone on with the companion stuff, such as remixing, over Dubs, processing or effects etc and he replied that he wasn’t into “rewriting history”, or words to that effect. IMHO this was exactly the the right approach for a project like the companion audio one. But would not necessarily be appropriate to have as a rule that would apply to anything else. I think there’s a couple of unknown instrumentals or that brutal artistry boot, which are great, would these have gone on the PG companion audio together with swan song, take me home ? IMHO PG would then have been in danger of becoming a triple and diluted from its original. Maybe it was better to stick to the companion audio concept and bank these tracks for later. If indeed they are bankable at all.
  23. What next? AGAIN

    IMHO using something from back in the day, from their former selves and building it up via their current selves is really interesting. To me it was part of the attraction of the o2 gig seeing how they tackled it, how the strength of the material stacked up against everything that had come after it was written and then before it was now being performed. I think led zeppelin is not just an era, collections of tracks, four specific blokes etc IMHO it’s like a way of approaching music that’s stood the test of time. o2 proved it to me and I reckon plant uses the same approach in his solo work. So I see no reason why Swan Song
