  1. Yes, the band knew the proper sequence for this album. But what if you had control as to the sequence of Presence's songs? Here's my take: SIDE ONE: Nobody's Fault But Mine (seems to be a crowd pleaser) For Your Life (builds on the drug-dependence theme of the opener) Achilles Last Stand (better here that highlights the majesty of Led Zeppelin than at the Album's beginning slot which was Way Too Much, Too Soon) SIDE TWO: Candy Store Rock (lightens up the intensity of Side One) Tea For One (highlights the blues history of the band, rather than a toss-off as a skipped-over last track) Royal Orleans (the prerequisite Zep "funny song") 10 Ribs & All/Carrot Pod Pod (Pod) EDITED DOWN TO APPROX. 3-and-one-half-minutes (just a relaxer) Hots On For Nowhere (highlights the lyrics better. Snowman melted away referring discovering yer coke's all gone; And if you ask my advice, take it slower, let your story be your finest reward is just nice advice for life. And a hard stop to the song is a nice close for a hard album by The Four Lads) All the best to you...
  2. Mid-section of their epic "Echoes." Can argue a lot of their "Animals" songs were a little Zep-like. BUT THAT'S A GOOD THING! p.s.: I love the Floyd's music
  3. Those midnight showings were the best. That and Floyd's "Live at Pompeii," -- albeit, a different mood. As for one of the TSRTS showings, a buddy's girlfriend fell asleep during Dazed & Confused, only to wake up near the end of the song to say to us seriously, "Didn't they play this song already?" Beer bottles rolling down the aisles. Beer cans being popped open. A near-contact high from all the legal and illegal things being smoked. People screaming at the very beginning to "Turn it up! Turn It Up!! TURN IT UP!!!!" (One night the projectionist did that for just a little bit, and Peter Grant's gangster car driving by made everyone's seat rumble it was so loud!!) It eventually got so bad that for future midnight showings, police were checking theatre goers before they bought tickets.

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

    MOST UNFORTUNATE, musically. Glad I still have my 1976 vinyl and their first CD issue (late 1980s?) of TSRTS containing the far superior "Celebration Day" version with the great guitar solo -- which hasn't seen the light of day since anywhere I know, not even YouTube. I had made my own "No Quarter" using parts from that same original CD and the 2007 re-master. If a dolt like myself can do that, I sure Mr. Page is more than capable to do the same -- but maybe it's a copyright thing with the film studio?
  5. That's an Interesting Observation! ...And "In Through the Out Door" became somewhat like that!: In the Evening has a droning intro like Nobody's Fault But Mine, both that start an album side Southbound Suarez is a fun , light little tune like Candy Store Rock, both second tracks Achilles Last Stand opening Side Two is akin to Carouselambra opening Side Two, both big, sprawling epics (just my opinion, maaaan.) Silly--albeit enjoyable--tunes like Hot Dog and Royal Orleans closes a side A slow, bluesy number closes out opposite side: Tea for One and I'm Gonna Crawl Back to topic, I used to hate Custard Pie as an opener, but I later "saw the light" after hearing the Black Crowes/Jimmy version.
  6. Yes, I've seen that. Definitely will check that out. Thank you!!
  7. Thanks! I'll check that out!
  8. I did that with a Gibson Les Paul and the legendary status as a guitarist never panned out...
  9. Hi, I was just wondering if there was ever available an audio file of "Autumn Lake," the hurdy-gurdy thing Jimmy Page plays near the beginning of their film, "The Song Remains the Same."? And if so, where could I get it? Always dug that... Thanks.
  10. Yes, I have the 2003 Blu-Ray, and it did the same thing with a still photo that changes once the next song begins. I'll have to order a copy seeing everyone here is digging the new sound!

    LZ songs just you don't like...

    oops, I posted already on page #12
  12. Apologies for the grammar...
  13. Back in the day, this was the original (1976) version of the "Celebration Day" song that appeared on The Song Remains The Same soundtrack, the difference from current version happens around 2:25, a version I find more appealing -- but was probably scrapped due to video restrictions.

    Any time now.....

    Sadly, Polka Music must be heard live. The best "rock polka" band out there? Brave Combo. Yeah, this one isn't necessarily polka, but along with hard rock, they can do various musical stylings:
  15. Other than maybe a missed note here or there, I would guess they are pretty much untouched. Maybe a punch-up in sound/mixing. The one song, though, that really makes me wonder (ahem), would be "Boogie with Stu": The percussion sounds way too modern for a recording in 1970. I've read a couple of explanations that it is either an effect by Jimmy slapping his guitar or some box contraption Bonzo played. Ultimately, I guess the studio bootlegs might provide your true answer for each song. "The song remains the same. It's f--king true, ain't it?" -- Peter Grant
