    Bonzo certainly plays like he knows he's being recorded... I will say that. This is one of my all-time favorite shows, just due to him. He is spectacular throughout. That said, I highly doubt this was multi-tracked....

    Next Soundboard Release

    I'd love to have another April 77 soundboard.

    Trentham Gardens '73 was Multi Tracked

    Just speculation on my part. Rarely does Bonham's snare sound this clean and crisp...

    Trentham Gardens '73 was Multi Tracked

    To me Bonham's drums sound just like they did the night before in Liverpool. They sound good, but nothing like his drums sound on the 3/7/70 Montreux show we now have. Now THAT one sounds like a direct mix-down from a multi-track to me.

    What next? AGAIN

    All I want are the Japan tapes and pro audio of TU and STH from 5/24/75. And maybe Louie-Louie/Thank You from 6/25/72. I'd never ask for another Zep related item EVER again.

    Live better than Studio

    Yes! Yes! YES!

    The Rain Song

    Great post, George! Totally agree.
  8. How much of that 2nd source exists? Of course, the Millard recording is glorious and one of the All-Time Greats, but this 2nd source isn't bad. Would love to hear it if more exists. Very interested in finding it if anyone knows.

    1972 and 1973 Shows

    It is indeed a killer show. Where's the SBD of it??!!

    1972 and 1973 Shows

    June 15, 1972 Nassau. Just blistering. The crashing opening of Immigrant Song is just devastating. This and the previous night-2 of my SBD holy grails. You can't go wrong with any of the 1972 NA shows. I love the Montreal show as well, which is usually over looked. May 1973 is also killer. Especially Mobile. Slick and professional-the playing just does not get much better than that.

    John Davis is "Mastering" Led Zeppelin

    Hard-pressed to find any real flaws from any show from the 72 NA tour. Every time I listen to the complete audience source of 6/25/72 I'm amazed at just how perfect it is. I know we have HTWWW, but I'd kill to have that show, complete, including all the encores. Just doesn't get any better.

    John Davis is "Mastering" Led Zeppelin

    Carnegie Hall???... STOP IT! Just STOP IT!!!! I can't handle that kind of (crazy) speculation!!! (That would be a damn dream come true)

    John Davis is "Mastering" Led Zeppelin

    I'd love to have the 5/24/75 D&C on multi. Are you kidding me?? Give me the best of 5/24-5/25 and I'll be a happy, happy man (TU and STH have to be from 24th!).
  14. I actually love 6/19/72 - everything about it. The guy screaming and losing his shit at the start of D&C is one of the great bootleg audience moments ever. Gives me goose bumps every time I hear it. I really, honestly love that recording. 6/22/77 is a good one. Boston, 5/28/69 Masters of Excess is about it for me.

    Why In Through The Out Door is a GREAT album

    The last 2 minutes or so of Carouselambra are great (starting at Bonzo's fills at 8:08, but I especially love the last minute). Bonham is just going crazy and the tension is just fantastic. Has always been one of my favorite parts of any Zep tune. Evidence that Zep could still bring (a bit of) the Hammer of The Gods when it wanted to.

    Why In Through The Out Door is a GREAT album

    Really-REALLY-love this album. Page's solos are incendiary. The crunch of his solos in INE, the one in SBS you mentioned, and IGC... which is simply beautiful. And yeah, SBS... no matter how many times I try to keep time with Bonzo I manage to F it up. I just can't figure it out. His drumming on that entire album is fantastic.

    Why In Through The Out Door is a GREAT album

    I didn't stop to think about the post too much. You're right. Still a great last album that gets dumped on too much by critics. ITTOD is fantastic.

    Why In Through The Out Door is a GREAT album

    Boy... I've never thought of it THAT way. The greatest last album a band, ANY BAND, ever released. Wow. How true is that??????

    Why In Through The Out Door is a GREAT album

    I've rediscovered this album recently. Have fallen back in love with it all over again. Substitute Wearing For Tearing for Hot Dog and it's a Killer F'ing album all the way thru.

    Not a huge fan of the this live, but going to give this a listen. Thanks. The studio version is just brilliant. You ever "reconnect" with a Zep tune after some time off? This and The Epic (which should've been used on the official release)... recently, just can't get enough of either of these songs.

    Led Zeppelin or Related on YouTube

    Cannot believe this is the first I've seen of this. Damn that was awesome. What a F*CKING catalog of music they have!!! Just gets me all goosebumply, if that's a word.

    What's your favorite live Trampled Underfoot?

    1st place - 5/24/75 - I agree with whoever said it earlier in the thread... this is one of the top 5 moments on stage for Zep. Just fascinated by how good this is. It literally NEVER gets old or boring. 2nd - 3/24/75 - As Luis Rey says "It's absolute, fabulous chaos." Have always loved this version. Bonham does some real interesting shit in it. 3rd place goes to 4/27/77 - Bonzo's playful, creative fills really makes this one unique.

    The Entourage

    That's Paul Rodgers?? It looks just like a young Walter Matthau. Great thread, BTW.
