    Hitting on the moonshine
  1. That Immigrant Song as well. Bonham and Page are very loose for this show.
  2. All I can picture is the car from National Lampoons Vacation.
  3. I've read the books and seen almost every photo, but I don't recall reading or seeing anything about how the band traveled in the early days. Did they have a bus? Are there pics of the bus or the band on it? Did they magically teleport from show to show? Can someone give a reference to something about their early touring that describes their road experience?
  4. My personal favorite, simply because there's no wah effect on the guitar. It sounds much more sinister.
  5. A Blueberry Hill SB would be a major event. Especially if complete.
  6. In the studio, Page was a known perfectionist. So I'd say what got recorded was what he intended, sloppiness or not. Live, Page was a top tier technician 69-73. Then, drugs. If you whittle down the possibilities of why he could be playing so badly, it simply sounds like he was high as a fucking kite. His brain was not in tune with his hands. There's no way a lack of practice for a couple years could affect a professional musician that badly. Especially after weeks of touring. Other than a few highlights in 77, he just never really got back on track due to his choice of drugs. Or that's my two cents anyway. The Houston 77 show is a good example of not just sloppiness, but forgetting where the strings on the guitar are. He's missing simple leads a beginner could play. Shame, too, because I love that bootleg.
  7. Thanks for that link! I thought they did more than four songs, guess not. Anyway, here they are.
  8. This show is one of my favorites! My favorite live versions of Black Dog, The Rain Song, No Quarter, and Moby Dick. No super long, dragged out extended versions. They kept the songs shorter and more solid. No Quarter is unique in that Page didn't use a wah pedal for the main riff. I haven't heard those other remixes, but I did my own a while back if you wanna check it out. I like my mixes a little bright, which some people don't.
  9. I'd gladly drop a hundred bucks for a complete SB of that show. Even though incomplete, it's in my top three favorites.
  10. A soundboard of Bath Festival 1970 would be interesting. First Immigrant Song and first That's The Way. Plus Johnny B Goode!
  11. My favorite encores and medleys are with the Eddie Cochran songs. I'd love to have a list of his songs they did and the dates. This would have been mostly between 69 and 72. I'm thinking about making a compilation video for youtube.
  12. Which show in particular? Berlin had the flute sound.
  13. I know he had a grand piano sound for No Quarter in the later days, but did he ever have that sound for Stairway?
  14. Stairway from Essen, Germany, 1973.
  15. i think this is what I was trying to say, but danced around. It's like they said "Make us sound like the other bands." I know there are those who like this, but I uess I'm not one. The reverb, the echo, it was just too overproduced in my opinion. Just give me the equivalent of a soundboard with a slight amount of room reverb, like Houses. I honestly tie Presence in with Page's Outrider album for some reason.
