    PLANT OFFERED A ROLE IN GAME OF THRONES?

    🤔
  2. The problem is the assumption all of that still exists. And for whatever reason, Page doesn't seem interested in creating new mixes.
  3. Well, compare the "Stairway" mix we got on the companion disc to the album--not worlds different, sure, but quite a bit rougher and with those extra guitar flourishes that were mixed out on the album but that Page would play live.
  4. Hard to say if "Rock and Roll" will be a "snoozefest." I think it might be more interesting than the previously released mix, just because I think that one must date to sometime around the final album mixing sessions in London (since it sounds so close to the album) whereas a Sunset mix might be vastly different. And come on, that backing track of "Friends" was amazing.

    Companion discs are rubbish

    The stellar remastering work was the reason to buy the sets. The companion music was just gravy--and some of it was the best gravy I've ever heard. We could have had a hell of a lot more if Page hadn't been concerned with only giving us mixes from the period itself.
  6. Hey--that was my point! It's not worth it to me because I'm losing out. I might change my tune once I hear it, but we'll see. I would have gone in for the whole shebang, too...but not now. Re: Winston's...no offence, but if it's done well, it should blow his effort--taking 5.1 audio tracks and remixing/EQing--out of the water.

    BBC Not quite complete sessions

    "Never" is a bad bet. Sales numbers are down markedly from what they were a decade ago.
  8. Working now. This isn't a fair assessment. The 2003 release was brick-walled and the drums clipped--maybe that's been attenuated on this release. I'd hope so. But that is not enough of an incentive for me (and others) to buy something that is musically inferior to what came before.
  9. If you don't think the previous round of remasters were worth it, that's on you.
  10. This actually has me angered. I want to give the lads my money, but not for something that is musically inferior than what we already have. Also, Sam, I don't think the links are working--they all opened iTunes.

    the Star Wars thread...

    Steve, you're a very, very sad human being. Keep your racism and sexism to yourself.
  12. I don't have a superiority complex; I'll admit that I am annoyed at the complaining people have done about these releases, but that's their loss/waste of time, not mine...

    Warner Bros. Aborted Led Zeppelin Movie Project

    I know someone who could personally refute that claim, at least somewhat. They might not have been into the drug scene, but they had fun if you catch my drift.

    Knebworth DVD's

    I got excited at the fidelity of the snippets and thought that there might be something more -- alas, comparison with the boot sources showed me they were one and the same, just from the master as opposed to traded copies (and hence that much better). There were some things mixed for DVD that were left off, though, including "Long Tall Sally" and an alternate intro to "Since I've Been Loving You."
