    Yes a cool movie - I had forgotten how cool the soundtrack is. Thanks for the reminder. What a chase scene!

    Soundtrack Music ~ Movies, TV, Etc.

    The Third Man. An incredible movie. I did not see it until about 6 years ago. Bought the soundtrack. The whole soundtrack is great, as they weave a series of related themes throughout. The story goes that the director did not know what to do for music. One night he walked past a cafe in Vienna where they were shooting, and he heard an instrument he had never heard before - the zither. He asked the player, Anton Karas to work on the movie music. The main theme became an international hit single in 1950. I was going to put the final scene here with the closing theme but that would spoil the film. Seek out the movie. The final scene and music are incredible, my favorite ending to a movie ever. Here is the main intro theme played live on zither by the composer. And here is one more piece from a critical scene in the film. The opening sequence with the main theme. Music starts at 0:55. At the end of the movie we learn in the credits that the film was produced at Shepperton Studios - yes the same Shepperton Studios that Zep used for TSRTS.

    What Are You Listening To At This Moment?

    At my weekly old time/bluegrass jam last night one of the mandolin players introduced this tune. I had not heard it before. Will be learning it for guitar.

    Favorite drum intros

    Aside from Zeppelin and many of those listed above in this thread: Pictures of Home - Deep Purple. On the Classic Albums series Roger Glover described Paice's intro there as "pure madness" Aerosmith - Lick and a Promise
  15. Thanks for noting this. I recently got that show and had not really listened to it yet, but when I saw your post I went to TSRTS and WOW you sure are right about that bass.

    1975 US Soundboards "Live Album"

    Great compilation. Thanks for sharing it. For 1975 NQ, I am partial to 3/17 for soundboards, but so many of them are so good. If I had to choose one overall including audience it would be 3/25 or 3/27. When I try to compare versions of NQ I think about the 3 basic sections of the jam: 1) solo keyboard, 2) keyboard and drums, 3) with Jimmy. I find 2/28 fascinating from a historical perspective because it is the first one with real piano, and it is intriguing to hear them adjusting to that and working it out as they go.

    Hard to believe it has been over 10 years since this great album was released.
  18. Sick Again from 4-27-77 remastered. The band is so locked in and the sound is fantastic. Plant is strong and up in the mix. So all the elements are there. "Destroyer Re-Mastered" Bad Girl Songs
