  1. When Jones kicks in with the start of Louie Louie the crowd just EXPLODES. To have been there must've been pure magic.

    Live at Carnegie Hall, October 17th 1969

    Every time I think about this missed opportunity I shed a tear.
  3. That is true. It's just that the people screaming around the mic are picked up so well it just adds to the overall excitement/listening experience. Same goes for the guy going nutso at the start of D&C.
  4. You're probably right... I was listening to that Seattle show this morning and just got all caught up in the excitement of the moment... when Jones hits those Louie Louie notes and the crowd just erupts. Just a GREAT moment captured forever on bootleg (THANK GOD!). God, to have seen these badass MFers live...
  5. Outstanding, George!

    Best live version of The Rain Song

    And just listen to Providence! Oh my. I think that's my favorite version... for this hour, at least. Just listen to Plant during Bonzo's big fill to start the rock section. Holy fuck. Spine tingling. ha! Phenomenal song.

    Best live version of The Rain Song

    Bonzo throws in some of his best fills and drum work when this song kicks off in the rock section. And I just can't ever get enough of his use of his tymp blasts in this song. Love Seattle 73. Bonzo's performance probably makes this one my favorite version.
  8. I'd love a January 75 sbd. Some of Jimmy's soloing is INSANELY fast. I prefer the January Sick Agains to the later in the tour Sick Agains. His soloing was dynamite, despite the finger issue.
  9. I found it and read it all last night! Had to jam out to 6/21/77 on my way into work this morning, at Freakishly high volume! You are one lucky SOB. Let me tell you.... I didn't fall asleep until almost 2:00 am cuz I couldn't get the thought of being at those 77 Forum shows out of my head. Just incredible.

    I've Been Sleeping On Bradfford 1973

    Oh yeah, George, I noticed!! Ridiculous!!!
  11. I had read your San Fran and Bonzo’s Birthday Party write ups on the timeline a couple yrs ago. This is the first I’ve read of Three Days After. Had to throw the show on in my office while I was reading. The crowd’s energy before Bonzo kicks off the start of RnR is simply incredible. A complete SBD of this show would be surreal. Can you direct me to your write up of 6/21/77??
  12. That's one of the greatest things I've ever read. Thanks Strider!! Incredible!

    You just had to go there, didn't you!?

    Agree. Why couldn't this one have been multi-tracked and not Southampton?! Bonzo's playing is D&C is outrageous!!

    1975 US Soundboards "Live Album"

    The FW MB is one of my all time favorites. But I love that version from Baton Rouge as well. When I got "Bon Soir, Baton Rouge" back in the mid 90's it was all I listened to for weeks. I fell in love with that recording and that version of Moby Dick because Bonzo's drums sounded absolutely GIGANTIC.

    1975 US Soundboards "Live Album"

    I love that you added TSRTS from Fort Worth. Bonzo is so on fire it's incredible. Just listen to him snap that bass drum... just freaking glorious.

    All My Love - story behind the song?

    Awesome thread fellas!

    Updated Soundboard Wish List

    Bonzo's SO INCREDIBLY GOOD it masks a lot of the other issues with the show. One of his all time great shows. He literally NAILS EVERYTHING. He accuracy, speed and energy were just amazing.

    Best Stairway

    Gosh dangit! This is it. I want this in pro quality so badly I lose sleep at nights. Edit out the :30 of Jimmy sucking on his hair and give it to us, DAMNIT! This and TUF from this same show. Both brutal, EPIC versions.

    Nitpicking Page 1973

    I believe so, yes.

    Nitpicking Page 1973

    I certainly believe so. Page, Bonham and Jones are pretty solid. This is probably the most painful listen, as far as Robert's voice goes. Just brutal. Really makes you wonder why they performed CB as an encore!

    Ten Years Gone

    Right! Have always wondered this too.

    Japan 1972

    72 Japan just might be my least favorite tour they ever did. Just seem to lack the hunger from earlier tours and the energy/nastiness of later tours.
