    Recordings that have "that special something" for you

    Don`t get me wrong, I love audience recordings & usually prefer them to SBs, but I have a serious problem with that Detroit recording. It is only fair to call the sound quality VG - EX, but sadly not for my ears. Have you heard the Tarantura2K "Songs For Europe" yet? This should be very good, maybe from a lower generation tape.

    Recordings that have "that special something" for you

    19. Sept. 1970/MSG/evening show. This show is simply outstanding. It may took a little while to get used to the sound of the recording, but now I like it more than some "objective better" sounding audience recordings. IMO the best available is the Eat a Peach release. 13. Sept. 1971/Berkeley. Again, an incredible performance with a nice natural sound, sometimes easier for my ears than the legendary gig on the 14th. I am happy with the Graf Zeppelin version. At last, a recording with "that very special something" : 12. July 1973/Cobo Hall Detroit. Though this audience recording is described as very good to excellent, I can`t stand it. This sound is brutal torture, after two songs I am starting to feel unwell, God, how I hate this piece of trash.
  3. Yes please, I have enjoyed your 75 & 77 nitpicks, though I consider myself mainly as a 69-73 fan. On 24th April you said: " I'd really dread doing most 73 shows because at least with the 75 shows, I can find a good array of both good and bad. With 73, I'd just be boring people to death jerking off over Page." Well, don`t be afraid- there is plenty of light & shade in these 73 shows. Just one suggestion, please don`t isolate the shows of the european tour from the gigs of the US tour, this procedure might enable a clearer view on the pros & cons of any particular show- for example: Is Vienna really that good compared to Seattle? Is Essen on par with New Orleans?...........
  4. Totally agreed! For example just think of Vienna 73, such a rugged, horrible version- guitar slightly out of tune, Robert`s damaged voice didn`t help either- what a desaster! Given Robert`s weak voice at the time, they should have included No Quarter in the Europe 73 setlist instead.

    Can you list your top 10 LZ songs, in no particular order?

  6. Just stumbled across this letter for publication in the May edition of MOJO. I have no camera at hand, so I type this letter. ***For Years I have been reading about the "Scandinavian Tour" of Led Zeppelin booked as The New Yardbirds to fulfil contractual obligations. Jimmy Page also refers to it in Shape Of Things To Come (Mojo 289). However, I saw The New Yardbirds in a club called Piccadilly (previously Pferdestall) in Hagen, Germany, so the tour definitely stretched a bit further. I did not like what I heard, as I was a thorough Yardbirds fan & I was there to groove to I`m A Man, Shapes Of Things, Over Under Sideways Down etc., but I got heavy blues rock instead. My then-girlfriend, now wife, bought Led Zep`s first album soon afterwards- we still have it. I guess there were further german appearances, as a one-off in the provinces does not seem reasonable or economical to me, however Germany is on the place to cross if you are travelling north. Does anybody remember any more german dates? Hans-Jürgen Klitsch, Schortens*** It`s a pity that he has given us no specific date, but who is able to remember specific details of a small club concert after 50 years, anyway. To my ears his story sounds authentic, and he seems to have chosen the right wife......
  7. Sorry, what are you talking about??? Just to be sure I have listened to the HTWWW remaster, Burn Like A Candle & the Moonchild release. I didn´t hear any two guitar parts, neither any replaced or altered notes in the solo or any other part. I can hear generally no difference between the official and the bootlegs. Of course the multi tracks of HTWWW display a wider tonal range of the guitar, such as the coda-fun- part of The Ocean, you simply won`t hear some nuances or dominant tones of some chords on the bootleg versions, simply because they are bootlegs.
  8. Get the vinyl, you won`t regret it- the Page remasters sound awesome. The Super Deluxe boxes do contain a download card, I don`t know if the "normal" vinyl remasters have one.

    pick one

    Providence, a new & complete AUD source, with sound quality as good as the Seattle AUD tapes.

    Pink Floyd Topic

    Anyone with a turntable and love for the first LP should get their RSD- The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn- MONO release! The sound is mindblowing- you won`t touch your stereo copy ever again!

    OK. Teach me about bootlegs. Best audience recordings.

    Nitpicking Page (The quest for the best performance of 1975)

    Alltough I am not the biggest fan of 75, I really dig gibsonfan`s enjoyable & detailed analysis. Four Blocks In The Snow is one of the few 75 concerts I appreciate. Neither the SB nor the matrix will do me any good. Haha, I prefer the TCOLZ audience version, because it makes not only Page`s sound but the whole thing "demonstrably better".
  13. Autumn Moon

    What show or live song are you listening to now?

    What a show, I absolutely love it. Funny, I like the very good audience source, the flat SB leaves me cold. Anyway, certainly one of the best concerts of their ninth US tour.

    Next Soundboard Release

    Sorry that I was unclear on this point. Yes, I also expect a release around September. But they haven`t released a song of the last third of the show so far, nothing from Moby Dick to Rock And Roll yet. So it is not proven that EV is able to release the entire 185 minutes of the show. I will keep my fingers crossed...... Let`s not forget about 928, EV should release both Osaka shows simultaneous, there is only one 50th anniversary.

    Next Soundboard Release

    I am still waiting for my copy of Graf Zeppelin`s 924, so I have listened to Light & Shade (until the end of the acoustic set) in the meantime. Man, Heartbreaker & Dazed & Confused are absolutely great. And if memory serves me well, Whole Lotta Love is a killer version too. You nailed it. But do they have the entire show? If EV would only release a song of the 3/3, that would calm down my nerves........
