  1. 1980 Tour Over Europe Multi Tracks

    I've mentioned it before, but, IMO the key is not the kick mics but the overheads. Big condenser mics, that's how Jimmy rolls when recording. Like in this photo from Earls Court. I think the two mics on the kick in '80 was just for better sound out front, much like they do in the studio, one for the attack the other for the ambient boom. I don't think there are any multis from the '80 tour myself
  2. Best Stairway

    Just wondering what some of your favorite versions of Stairway to Heaven might be. Currently listening to Mobile, Alabama '73, it's a good one...Toronto '71 is another one I like..
  3. The Song Remains the Same - Upcoming screenings

    Heavy Metal! Yeah, all those Ralph Bakshi movies, Fritz the Cat, and stuff, I'd always go to the triple-bill Hendrix night with Rainbow Bridge, Jimi Plays Berkeley and the WB documentary. Never cared for Rocky Horror much, but it fit right in with Flesh Gordon and flicks like that. The Rialto in South Pas was the place, Big comfy chairs in back, saw TSRTS a million times there....

    great interview, Cookie, thanks for that

  13. Parents Comments About Zeppelin

    Well, not Zep really, but I'll always remember a good line from my mom - I just got back from a concert, and she asked me who I saw. "Jethro Tull" I said. "How was he?" she asks

    Happy anniversary to LZ .com. You do a great job Sam, keep up the good work!
  15. I remember what a big deal it was when Page / Plant did it on a Japanese TV show back in '95 or so, it was like the first time they did it since Zep.

  22. Zeppelin Mysteries Hosted by Steve A. Jones

    CD 15 of "Studio Magik" contains some fishy stuff. That's not really 5 takes of Ten Years Gone, for example, they drop the needle on the first half of the record and call it "take one", play the end of the record ("take two") and play some of the middle ("take three") etc... Typical bootlegger nonsense. Sorry to stray, but it came up and I just sampled that disc the other night, so it was an opportunity to vent. Carry on...
  23. Zeppelin Mysteries Hosted by Steve A. Jones
