    Things You've Heard From The Audience?

    LA Forum, 31. May 73, Bonzo´s Birthday Party, audience recording: During the guitar intro of OTHAFA, about 30 to 40 seconds into the song, the taper or a guy next to the recorders mic yells "MY BOOT!!!" for whatever reason.
  2. Thank You was only played on the last night, so Jimmy wasn´t able to choose the best out of 3, or "frankenstein" the best pieces of three nights to create one super version. I am afraid, he simply wasn´t satisfied with the version of the 29th. And YES, I think he should release it, as he should release the original, intact NQ!

    Had the same problem with the envelope, I guess no one is able to get the photographs out without damaging it. The flyer is really beautiful, I wish they had more stuff like that with their boxes. I have managed to listen to the 2.,3.,4. & 5. October so far, as you said, it is worth every penny.

    Consoling Plant.

    Sad but true, JPJ & JP did not attend the funeral. Don´t know Jones´ reasons, but Page was indeed on vacation, more precisely on a round trip, from H-ville via Smackland to Brownstone by the sea.

    Robert Plant @ at Silver Clef Awards.

    Ah, I see- Primrose Hill isn´t really far away from Camden. I have noticed that over the past years he gave most of his interviews in cafes or kebab houses situated in Camden. Thanks for the info.

    Hadn't seen this one before. What's the origin?

    Recording overdubs for Whole Lotta Love, A&M Studio, Los Angeles, May 1969

    Robert Plant @ at Silver Clef Awards.

    Agreed, this bag looks pretty shitty, but he did not carry it without a cause. On his way home from the Awards he took a rest in a lovely park, opened his bag & took out the cigarette-papers and some......... And you know how it is..... BTW, do you know if he lives in the north of London, he mentions Camden Town quite often.

    Responding to the release of Deus Ex Machina by Eelgrass, EV released their budget jewel case shortly after, to the same price. The EV budget version came quite exactly 2 months after the initial releases of their limited box sets. My love for the 75 tour is manageable, so I thought buying the EV cheapo is a good idea.

    Could be their classy strategy, keep silent, leave the spotlight on Jimmy´s announcements for official anniversary releases. The book in October, the re-remastered TSRTS in September- huh, breathtaking. Hopefully one interesting "Live from the Archives" for christmas, if at all. And then, out of the blue, EV´s 929 early September. No advertising or fanfare needed, this is a holy grail. Knowing the new IS version, the only thing that would benefit from a SB/multitrack matrix would be the guitar. Is it technical possible to bring in just the guitar? All the other instruments of the old (so called) SB version would spoil the sound of the new, real SB. If it´s possible, one should use the guitar of Wendy´s definite 929 release of 2016, it is raw & exiting like the official RAH 1970. And then 928, please.

    Led Zeppelin II cover.

    Mook is right. The original photo shows members of JASTA 11, the famous fighter-pilot-squadron, led by Manfred Freiherr von Richthofen (Der rote Baron). This was WW1 and Pilots often wore individual overcoats. Anyway, similar designed coats were used by the navy also. If you search the net for a short coat with double-row-button bar, you should find something similar. Here is a link for an authentic german WW1 pilot jacket: https://www.amazon.de/Noble-House-Fliegerjacke-Lederjacke-Ledermantel/dp/B00UZCPN5A

    Thanks for your kind offer. It may sound weird, but I don´t even want to hear another single release, that would "spoil" my anticipation for the hopefully complete release. IMO there will be no more single releases, as I am totally convinced of EV releasing 929 about september. Imagine, that would be he definite 50th anniversary release.

    Hi, I´d like to apologize for offending you with some of my comments, for becoming personal. That wasn´t smart, wasn´t polite- sorry for that. Back on topic. About EV spat the dummy- Honestly, what kind of reaction did you expect from EV? I am not a fan of their Superdeluxe-Boxsets-policy either, but I can understand their point of view. About 929, I just have the IS-single & I am convinced with its sound quality. I think you know the new versions of IS and STH, Friends will be with the same superior sound, I suppose so. Finally, no, I don´t think it is a competition. I am happy with my bootleg collection, that´s it. If someone has 5 times as much, if someone has downloaded every boot ever released, congratulations! -what´s that to me?

    No 929 Friends yet? Man, the tears are tripping me. Sorry, don`t want to be disrespectful, but this is way too funny. Why all this EV & Co. bashing? Haven`t you ever thought about the bootleg business & its mechanisms? To get a boot released companies like EV have to track down the tape owners, convince them, negotiate the price & finally have to invest a lot (!) of money upfront. This is not managed by Father Christmas, and I haven`t heard about a crowdfunding project of torrent sites & downloaders yet. And then there are hopefully 200 fans who will buy the limited silvers, which are really expensive these days, due to a bigger number of fans who download & never pay a single $. Finally, I have been buying boots for 30 years, I am not a rich man & there were years I couldn`t afford to buy a single boot. So, let´s do what we do best: I keep buying silvers & you keep downloading, with our heads held high, no whining!

    What show or live song are you listening to now?

    Burn Like A Candle on Graf Zeppelin Full show, dimmed lights & smoking requisites at hand- by the time I reach Louie Louie, I will be pretty tall. That is what I call a remedy.

    Jimmy Page confirms 2018 release(s)

    This! & please both 928 & 929!!! Ha, this would be the first and only time that I would thank Mr. Plant for preventing a LZ live release.

    New "Song Remains The Same" 2CD/4LP/3DVD Deluxe Set

    Weird, on this forthcoming 4LP set the 29 minutes of Dazed & Confused will be squeezed onto one side. The 2007 version has it separated over two sides. 29 minutes on one side, I don`t think this will necessarily improve the sound quality. Remember the Stones` Aftermath, their decision to give us the full "Goin Home" treatment (the worst jam on vinyl ever, only topped by Loves` "Revelation" on Da Capo) deteriorated the sound noteworthy. Anyway, only will buy this if the 1976 version of No Quarter is on board.

    Jimmy Page confirms 2018 release(s)

    Just kidding? No? Man, this is a downer. I have got the 2007/2008 remasters on CD, DVD & the superb sounding 4LP-set, halfspeed remastered by Bob Ludwig. Don`t think this new release will surpass them in soundquality. Anyway, this will not serve the 50 anniversary well. I WANT VOL 1 OF AN OFFICIAL LIVE SERIES, AND I WANT IT NOW!!!

    Nitpicking Page 1973

    ^1+++, the thread "in search of the best 73 concerts" is another thing. Agreed, the four of them must have been in a state of shock from January onwards. Without any doubt a hard time til Plant`s voice finally stabilized (to some degree) on the 9th US tour. And this is exactly the point where things get a little complicated. "Taking Plant`s voice out of the equation" & "band firing on all cylinders (minus Plant)" will not necessarily lead to satisfying outcome. IMO one has to clearly distinguish: 1.) Page`s playing in 73, truly outstanding, his peak for many fans. 2.) The 1973 concerts, judged by THEIR actual performance. Whenever in poor shape, you can`t count Plant out, it was a four piece band and he was an equal integral part. For example their gig in Vienna, March 16th: I was born in Vienna November 1971, never got the chance to see them live myself. But I have known 3 lads (16, 17 and 20 years old in 1973) who attended this very concert. Of course, I drove them crazy with questions about their concert experience. To cut a long story short, some impressions they reported in conformity: Dazed & Confused was the absolute highlight of the show. Page & Bonham were equally praised, all three of them said, that they never have seen a better live performance by any guitarist or drummer, before and after. Plant`s damaged voice was evident, right from the start. One even said, that Plant sounded boozy. For some songs Plant used way too much reverb/delay effects to cover his weak voice, which wasn`t suitable with the acoustics of the huge Wiener Stadthalle. They all complained about lack of older songs & too much then unfamiliar HOTH songs. It was fucking loud, they had ringing ears for days, especially the youngest, who was seated tenth row, a little right of center.***

    Japan 1972

    Haha, I`ve noticed that you never seem to lose any time with your orders. I am not quite convinced yet. I guess you have older releases of the 72 Japan shows, so please let us know, if the new ones are the huge upgrades promised.

    Japan 1972

    The box is already on sale. Artwork is beautiful, I`d choose The Overture, I`ve always liked that weird image. Buy it or not- I guess I`ll wait for the first reviews. Has anyone ordered yet?

    Hats off to Ms. Yoyoka! Just 8 years old and such an incredible talent. So focused and yet apparently enjoying every second. Thanks for sharing!

    Sounds good, and for six shows the price is moderate.

    Japan 1972

    This 72 box set is only the Overture, the big one will be most likely 929 or/and 928 in September. So, Jimmy would bomb EVSDs business by releasing HTEWW (Sept.71) officially, but I don`t think he will.

    Hadn't seen this one before. What's the origin?

    This is either Amsterdam or Brussels, May 1972- the two warm-up gigs prior to their 72 US tour.
  25. It has to be No Quarter from the original 1976 soundtrack, with Jimmy`s mesmerizing solo intro intact. Soundwise. I`d prefer the 2007/2008 TSRTS remasters anytime, but sadly there is no solo intro- I`ll never understand JP`s decision!
