    Nitpicking Page 1973

    I know I sent you this on Reddit already, but I'd like to see any of the following at some point: 1/15 Stoke 3/24 Offenburg 5/13 Mobile 6/3 Los Angeles 7/17 Seattle 7/21 Providence 7/23 Baltimore (if you can stomach the shitty sound ) No rush or anything though!

    What show or live song are you listening to now?

    Finally managed to take my two LA 77 compilations (Millard only and all six shows) and put them all into two different, full length (minus Stairway due to copyright) videos.

    What show or live song are you listening to now?

    Same. If I could attend a concert with multiple artists, I'd probably choose Woodstock. But if it had to be a single act, Led Zeppelin in Seattle on June 19th, 1972 would be my pick!

    Personally I've never been big on Kashmir from this show. I've seen some praise for it, but whenever I listen to it, all I can think about is how sluggish the band (Bonzo in particular) is. It sounds like it's being played in slow motion. That being said, I do agree with you in general that 77 gets more hate than it deserves. There's roughly half a dozen shows that are truly bad/awful. The rest range from okay to outstanding. The LA run alone makes this year worthy imho.

    Pretty good list. I'd say you're mostly spot on. Only changes I would make would be: putting Chicago 4/9 in the bad/weird category given how Page was unwell that night. I'd also put Landover 5/28 in that category as well. That might just be my least favorite Zeppelin performance ever. Page is awful and Bonzo's off and the whole thing drags at a snail's pace. I mean a 33 minute drum solo? Ugh! Not to mention the soundboard for that show is dreadful. Dry as a bone and sludgy as hell. I'm inclined to maybe add San Diego 6/19 to that category as well owing to Bonzo's performance, but you are right that the rest of the band is great. Other than that, I'd pretty much agree with this list.

    Zeppelin Mysteries Hosted by Steve A. Jones

    Hi Steve, I was on Wikipedia and I came across this interesting tidbit regarding the band's summer 1969 tour of the US: Is there any truth to this at all? Or is this just complete bullshit from Wikipedia?

    Nitpicking Page 2/8/75 Philadelphia ( The Spectrum)

    Your review inspired me to check out this show. Holy cow where did that performance come from?! Page is on freaking fire! Hell, even Plant sounds strong here. Even Dazed (which I expected to be like most 75 versions: long and meandering) was fiery and powerful. For those who haven't checked out this show, I can't recommend it enough. Sure the March shows may be more epic and the Earls Court shows may have a bigger vibe, but in terms of the band being tight and focused, it really doesn't get much better than this for '75. This is a truly underappreciated show.

    What happened to Plant's voice in 1972 ?

    Thanks. I knew he went for it at at least one of the Australasian shows but I couldn't remember which. Shame his voice declined so rapidly after that.
  9. I put together my very own Japan 1971 compilation using the shows that we know (or suspect) were multitracked: the 23rd, 24th, 28th, and 29th shows. I used what are considered to be the best or definitive versions of each show: September 23rd - My own compilation of EVSD's "First Attack of the Rising of the Sun", Watch Tower's "Rock Carnival" and TDOLZ's "Reflection From a Dream" September 24th - TDOLZ's "Light and Shade" (I thought about using Graf Zeppelin's recent "Super Stars" release, but the more I thought about it, the less I liked the distant sound on it) September 28th - Lighthouse's "Osaka 1971 1st Night" September 29th - Wendy's "Live in Japan 1971 929" Here is my track listing: 1. Introduction - 23rd 2. Immigrant Song - 24th 3. Heartbreaker - 24th 4. Since I've Been Loving You - 23rd 5. Black Dog - 24th 6. Dazed and Confused - 29th 7. Stairway to Heaven – 23rd 8. Please Please Me/From Me to You - 28th 9. Celebration Day - 29th 10. Bron-Y-Aur Stomp - 28th 11. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (instrumental snippet) - 29th 12. That's the Way - 29th 13. Going to California - 29th 14. We Shall Overcome - 28th 15. Tangerine - 29th 16. Down By the Riverside - 28th 17. Friends - 29th 18. Smoke Gets in Your Eyes (snippet) - 29th 19. What Is and What Should Never Be - 23rd 20. Moby Dick - 29th 21. Whole Lotta Love - 23rd 22. C'mon Everybody - 28th 23. High Heeled Sneakers - 28th 24. Communication Breakdown - 29th 25. Organ Solo - 29th 26. Thank You - 29th 27. Rock and Roll - 29th Here is a YouTube upload I did of it, made to sound like one giant "super concert" (NOTE: Stairway had to be removed due to copyright): And for those who want a download link, check out this Google Drive folder (which does include Stairway): https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1QuXvBhqnafdlTqe0RAl081-thPo7wX-T Hope you all enjoy it!

    So I'm assuming for this year you're going to be grading on a steeper curve given the level of Page's playing? So for example this OTHAFA is a B+ by 73 standards, yet would be an A or A+ by 75 or 77 standards, is that correct? I'm really looking forward to your breakdowns from this year and I'm particularly curious what you think of Chicago. Is it bad by 73 standards, or is it bad in general (if you take Plant's voice out of the equation cause let's be honest, he sounds like shit at that show)? Regardless, there's a ton of gems from throughout this year. The last year where the band (minus Plant) was firing on all cylinders at a consistent rate.

    My personal source mix/compilation of Tokyo 9/23/71

    Yeah it might just be that some of them aren't on silver disc. Or it could be they're duplicates. That thread is kind of out of date so who knows? Japan's always been more lax when it comes to bootlegging from what I understand. Like I said, I'm wondering if there's more out there from the other shows. We already had the "Super Stars" release of the 24th show which contained a new never before heard source. I wonder if there's an excellent audience recording out there for one of the other shows. I mean, what we have now isn't bad for the most part, but I'd LOVE for there to be an audience source out there for, say, the 29th, that is on par with Source 5 or Source 7 from this show.

    Not sure if anyone's messaged you regarding this, but there's only one audience recording from this show currently in circulation. It's distant, but the atmosphere is great. If you have bootleg ears, it's a pretty damn good performance. Here's a YouTube upload of it minus Stairway.

    Nitpicking Page 1977

    Another excellent review. I agree that this show is nowhere near the LA shows, but I don't think it's quite as bad as many make it out to be. Jimmy's erratic yes. Plant is hoarse yes. But Bonham's on fire and Jones (vocals notwithstanding) is solid as usual. And there are some good highlights like NQ, TYG, the acoustic set, and STH. I prefer the audience recordings for this cause they mask a lot of the flaws and the gig actually comes across as being pretty good. What do you plan on doing next? Tempe perhaps?
