    Led Zeppelin to do a Live streaming service

    Maybe they should follow DGM's (King Crimson) model? Just about every recording they have gotten their hands on along with most of their recordings for sale as download in flac or mp3. I think the streaming thing is a way to keep people coming back to the site for repeat listening. that keeps the band current and also has some other advertising angle to generate cash.

    Say what you want. A 320 mp3 of official material won't sound too much different but when you mp3 bootlegs the effect thins out the recording makes the cymbals sound swishy and removes the deepest of the bottom end sometimes the only discernable bass too begin with. If you're happy with mp3 more powa to ya. I'll stick with lossless.

    That's the way of the world. Spend time to pretty something up then broadcast it in a lossy format kinda defeats the purpose; to me anyway.

    If the stream is lossy then it's lossy. 320 is the best you can do with mp3 but they'll probably go with 128. Even if it's 256 K It won't matter what kind of matrix they do its lossy and will sound like shit. If you want to pay for low quality music then be my guest but don't try and shame me because I want it lossless.

    Yeah and then they steam it lossy and ruin it anyway.

    PROOF THAT ANOTHER 1977 PRO-SHOT VIDEO EXISTS

    You made the claim that you know exactly what is causing the effect in the pic, not me.

    Song Remains the Same Re-Issue - No Quarter

    I think what everybody forgets is that the attitude of those involved in the product won't always be the same attitude as those who listen to the product. For anyone here to think that JPJ is cringing over the cuts is way out of bounds. He may feel that way but We/You cannot simply say that you know how he feels about it because of how you feel. Most times if you allow a musician to listen back to what they've played they will have a totally different take on what is heard then you do. The mistakes they hear as compared to the ones you perceive could be totally different and they may feel that what they played wasn't even what they wanted to accomplish at the time. Just because you love it doesn't mean they do. The fact that Jimmy made cuts to something we all love doesn't mean he sees it anywhere near as dreadful as we do.

    so you can't figure out how to use the add other media option but I should simply take your word that what I am seeing in that photo is due to dry ice and not what looks like video tracking issues. Riiiiiiiiighht

    PROOF THAT ANOTHER 1977 PRO-SHOT VIDEO EXISTS

    Tell you what, I have seen Jimmy's Laser Show with the firm and his solo act and I have ever seen any of those effects to the naked eye. I have the vids and I don't even remember seeing anything like that in those vids. But I have seen enough distortions in VHS tapes to say it certainly looks like the same thing. I'm not saying it is but can you show any other photos that show this effect or not?

    There should be a lot of picture evidence to back up your claim. I'm not aware of any pics where that effect is evident. Do you have any other examples? .

    Thefts of recordings from Jimmy Page's home...

    I can see why it was left off the album. It has the lame 80's sound.

    The Last Adieu // Empress Valley // A lot to do about nothing

    I love Bootlegs, If I had the disposable cash I would buy them all.
  16. Frankly, I think the beginning of each show was as exciting as you can get.

    Jimmy Page Vs Robbie Williams

    Stop whining you say? The house we own is well over 100 years old and has a stone foundation. Over the last 30 years, the town we live in has allowed developers to literally insert 2 whole new neighborhoods of 35 to 40 homes to be built right on top of the old. Construction started at the furthest corner from my house and over the years it got closer and closer as they put in more homes. Every day for 15 years straight my house shook all day every day until it started to affect the foundation of my house and forget the noise. Now there are cracks in my walls and not too mention the sheer madness of being shaken all day long for years on end. The money needed to shore up the foundation and repair the damage inside was huge forcing us to take another mortgage. Unless you've lived right in amongst new developments one should not cast stones.

    Led zep film- TSRTS

    All concert footage should be shot from about 6 rows back dead center. The only time close ups should be used is when they are relevant like when Jimmy is soloing or plant is singing a deep part of the song. Too many angles ruin the feel of it, you're no longer getting the vibe of what it was like to be there but instead seeing a montage of poorly edited moments that never really do justice to what's really going on on stage.

    Just in case Jimmy needs some more vinyl...

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

    DAMN, I may just have to break down and shell out the dough for this. I mean why not, This album had a huge impact on my life. I spent so many hours listening to this that makes sense to buy. It's how I got hooked on live Zep and caused me to seek out Bootlegs.

    Dee Snider Of Twisted Sister Puts Down Zep

    Agreed, all those hair metal bands were just punks who went glam instead. It's all garbage. Where are all those bands like RAT, WASP, KIX, CINDERELLA, POISON and the rest today? On the trash heap. Too me the only decent Band was Tesla.

    Dee Snider Of Twisted Sister Puts Down Zep

    I didn't say he was a jazz drummer so let me clarify things for you. Bonham was a rock drummer plain and simple but he used his influences to create a new kind of Rock Drumming that was all his own. He was influenced by jazz, big band, swing and other more eccentric styles that made their way into his playing in very simple and subtle ways. They show in his timing, his bass foot, his snare and his use of the high hat so with all due respect (and this isn't direct towards any one person but folks in general) if you cannot hear the influences in his playing then I don't feel you understand him as a musician at all. other notable songs where his influences are evident. IMTOD, SIBLY, ( love that squeak!) Poor Tom, Carouselambra, I'm Gonna Crawl. Ps. I just listened to I'm Gonna Crawl, first time in a long while as I have been wrapped in live1975 for ages. What a fucking Awesome track!!!! I knew it was one of my favs for a reason! Bonham's drumming swings so effortlessly it makes me sick and then just to remind you that he's a rock drummer he gets louder and bashes you with Rock Drumming at just the right times. I'm always blown away by Zeppelin's music.

    Dee Snider Of Twisted Sister Puts Down Zep

    I'm sorry but I have to disagree with you. If you think John had no chops you're wrong. just watch the RAH Moby Dick. He shows incredible finesse. Watch his crossovers and triplets on the toms he is very smooth. John also has a great onehanded roll. If you listen very hard to what he's doing you'll notice the snare never really stops ringing because he is always making it talk. IMHO Ginger was simply jealous of Johns power and talent and his comments bear that out. Most musicians will be humble and say good things about other musicians, not Baker he, as Dave Chapelle would say is always keeping it real and by real I mean shit talking other musicians because they had the light he wanted but never really got.
