    Los Angeles Photos - Zep and Others

    The images below are from someone who was a teenage in LA during the 1970s. He went to a lot of great shows and brought his camera. He got as close as possible to the stage, often making it to the front row, and snapped close up shots of the bands. Luckily for us, he saw Zep a number of times and published his photos for all of us to see. Here are some samples. If you want to see the rest, here's the link: https://www.instagram.com/frommyseat/. He also sells some of the images at https://stratfordrockphotos.com/gallery.php?band=Led_Zeppelin (FYI, I'm not affiliated with him, just thought some folks here would like his work.)
  2. Hello all. I was wondering if anyone had specific I.D. information about the Eddie Edwards source which was originally combined with mike millard's tapes. the most information i've been able to garner about it is the following: ""Eddie Edwards "Trampled Underfoot" 1st Gen cassette of vinyl transfer"". Now, granted, I have yet to scour the earth for it, but I have put quite a spot of time into my search now and so far as I can tell, either this source completely no longer exists, or I'm doing a really bad job of dissecting the semantics of that sentence, which came from a description in the Winston Remasters. I have also found evidence that there was a release of... trying to remember... i think it may have even just been "For BadgeHolders Only", but was released on a label called Balboa, and is apparently the only non-Millard complete source without unforgivable issues such as single-channel dropouts, etc. I thought perhaps this could possibly be the "vinyl transfer" mentioned in the Winston Remasters, but have not found a way to confirm that, nor have I been able to find this Balboa release in the first place. Bottom Line: Does anyone have any information about that vinyl transfer mentioned in the Winston Remasters, or even just have any knowledge to add concerning lowest-gen-as-possible Eddie Edwards source? Because this is literally everything I got, and it ain't much. The winston remaster wasn't done that long ago, right? So it's unlikely we're talking about something that time has swallowed forever, one would think. Anyway thank you in advance; I figured if I was going to ask the question anywhere, it should be here.
  3. First impressions from the concert last night... The sound quality and my view of the stage was not as good as the Houston show. The Shrine is a deceptively larger and more cavernous venue than its seating capacity (between 4,000-5,000) would suggest, and there were times when I felt the sound should have been louder...particularly Robert's vocals, which got buried in the mix on a couple occasions. The sound balance between the instruments was also off at times. So, sound quality-wise, Houston was better. Performance was still good, though...although again I think Houston was a notch above. The setlist was exactly the same as Houston with one exception...instead of "Angel Dance" they played "Another Tribe". A quick check of the internet shows that it's the same set they played at Austin, June 23. Whether this portends a permanent change in regards to Angel Dance being booted in favour of Another Tribe, time will tell. The crowd atmosphere was great...lots of freaky people getting their freak on amid the crowd. I think there was a sizable contingent of former consorts of the days of the Riot House and Rodney's English Disco. The crowd went apeshit over "Going to California" of course. But I think the Houston crowd sang along more and louder than the LA crowd. The opening act, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals made a good impression...she's got a great presence and rocked the shit out of her Flying V. Her drummer was good, too, and later they did one of the coolest drum solos I've ever seen and heard when the whole band joined the drummer on his kit. Everyone picked a part of the kit and started banging away. So I thought the opening band in LA was better than in Houston. But Denver has the best opening band of the entire tour: The Black Angels. If you're going to the Denver show, make sure you get there early. Sound problems aside, Robert was in great voice again, bringing out his "rock and roll voice" many times and treating the audience to some vintage, epic moans and howls and wails of yore. It appeared he was wearing similar, if not the same, clothes he wore at Houston. The highlights for me remained the same as from the Houston show: "Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You" getting the crowd into it immediately..."Tin Pan Valley" and the excellently psychedelic "Enchanter" showing the skill and chemistry between Skin and Justin...the trio of acoustic Zep gems, "Going to California", "Friends", and "Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp"...the "Whole Lotta Love/Who Do You Love" closer, proving that that WLL riff is eternal. It's just such a Juggernaut of a riff...it will not be denied. You cannot resist banging your head and stomping your feet to that riff. Actually, I enjoyed the whole set..."Please Read the Letter" is really growing on me; it's much better in concert than on the studio album. "Spoonful" and "Fixing to Die" are great blues reworkings. And "In the Mood" is just a good upbeat tune and groove...it fits perfectly coming immediately after the opening "Babe...". I'll expand on these thoughts and more another time. It's back to work and the daily grind for me now. I'll leave you with a photo that I took so you can see the difference between my vantage points in LA and Houston.
