  1. Past hour
  2. I listened to every available recording from this tour for the first time this year for the 50th anniversary and ranked the shows as I went along. Details in the podcast episode below (28 minutes long): Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/rock-talk-with-dr-cropper/id1518703647?i=1000492257690 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/episode/65cQNXisz9vNApJMpe1pWm?si=5WBOtvZbRDi4KmTwu6RHkg Google Podcasts: https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9mZWVkcy5idXp6c3Byb3V0LmNvbS8xMTE5MjU0LnJzcw/episode/QnV6enNwcm91dC01NTcwMTUy?sa=X&ved=0CAUQkfYCahcKEwiI5YPSoIDsAhUAAAAAHQAAAAAQCQ September 19 - New York (Evening) September 2 - Oakland September 4 - Los Angeles September 19 - New York (Afternoon) September 3 - San Diego August 21 - Tulsa September 6 - Honolulu (Early) -- Only the truncated setlist holds it back September 9 - Boston August 31 - Milwaukee -- Would be higher with a more complete tape August 10 - Hampton August 15 - New Haven August 28 - Detroit -- From what can be deciphered through the rough tape, would probably be higher if complete
  3. My podcast episode ranking the 1971 North American shows came out a few days ago if you still need help with this, OP: Apple: https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/rock-talk-with-dr-cropper/id1518703647?i=1000491553234 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/episode/5FUEwa4XKcNUuTpU8QxfJj?si=XnYUFy6OQI2GquIEUZuj-w Google: https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9mZWVkcy5idXp6c3Byb3V0LmNvbS8xMTE5MjU0LnJzcw/episode/QnV6enNwcm91dC01NDcwMjQz?sa=X&ved=0CAQQkfYCahcKEwiI5YPSoIDsAhUAAAAAHQAAAAAQBQ
  4. Today
  5. Yippee! Time to celebrate the anniversary of the epic Japan tour of 1971. Maybe Mr. Nightowl could use his talents to merge sources 2, 4, 5 & 7 for a perfect 923 matrix. Also, an SB of 923 would be gorgeous!!! Big time, and it starts like this:
  6. A couple of things crossed my mind upon hearing this news. One…I thought he had already died a while back. Two…I never got to see Gale Sayers play in person. The Chicago Bears were not on tv in L.A. often. It wasn't until "Brian's Song" that I really learned about Gale Sayers as a player. Rest In Peace, Gale Sayers. https://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/bears/ct-gale-sayers-chicago-bears-died-20200923-4lv2wfxcangajgbcaiyiwbcnna-story.html
  7. R.I.P. Gayle Sayers (77) (former Chicago Bears running back, NFL great and Hall Of Famer). R😎
  8. Not particularly. https://www.nj.com/entertainment/2020/09/thought-sopranos-movie-the-many-saints-of-newark-was-a-wrap-not-so-fast.html
  9. No one interested in The Many Saints of Newark?
  10. Badgeholder, I am afraid not. These shots were taken in one of 3 possible locations, within a year of you seeing them [between 1981-82], either in Louisville, Kentucky, or Cincinnati, Ohio. Lost a lot of important papers in that big move, so I no longer can pin it down, accurately, unfortunately. Hoping that someone else that attended the show will chime in with the actual date and venue From my research on the Internet, there is scant mention of them doing shows together. The focus seems to be on when they gathered to record together, a bit later, but very few live dates come up [but I will admit that a couple of evenings doing that research, isn't necessarily going to get me what I'm looking for. No newspaper mentions, from 5 regional publications, so I'm at a dead-end on that, for now]. Cheers!
  11. Steve's phenomenal stereo remaster of 1971-09-29. As good as an official release and unscrewed around by Jimmy. 😄 A wonderful listen
  12. I enjoy Montreal '75 for what its worth. But obviously wouldn't say no to an upgrade.
  13. Sure there are a few audience tapes which combined throughout the entire span of Zeppelin’s career might add up to a dozen decent audience tapes and they will always be nice to have. As you mentioned Chicago 1975, I’ll bet if we ever get soundboards of these shows 99.9% of collectors will never visit the audience tapes again. I’ll take even a rough soundboard over a craptastic audience tape recorded from 3 miles away under a seat covered with a shirt on a radio shack deck with built in mic
  14. I really want to hear When The Levee Breaks from the soundboard. The AUD recordings are listenable and you really get a feel for just how huge Bonham's sound really was. To hear that from the SB is a grail for me.
  15. Cool. He did a Free, Rory Gallagher and a Jethro Tull cover the other night. https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/joe-bonamassa/2020/ryman-auditorium-nashville-tn-5b852398.html R😎
  16. R.I.P. Tommy DeVito (92). He was in the Four Seasons with Frankie Valli. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tommy_DeVito_(musician) R😎
  17. Thanks so much for the compliment, Badgeholder!!! Sorry I didn't respond sooner, but the last couple of days were a whirlwind of activity for me, so I didn't have the time, before now, to thank you..... Nice ticket stub [with most of the name & details in place]! Wish I still had mine to share, but "went missing" during a major move [~ 30 years of stubs starting in the early 70's...]. Cheers!
  18. I don't give a fuck about Michael Jackson or his tomb. He has ruined Forest Lawn Glendale. I spend more time now at the Hollywood Forest Lawn...Buster Keaton is buried there. As is Ronnie James Dio.
  19. Or Freezer's, for that matter- I mean, his 2/28/75 audience tape sounds so good, who gives a flying fuck about the soundboard? IMO a good audience tape will beat a drier than stale melba toast soundboard tape ANY ol' day of the week...

    During the Nationals game last night they played the WLL guitar solo between pitches at one point.
  21. Yes, that is the Griffith Park Observatory.
  22. This is really good (covering Heart of the Sunrise and Starship Trooper): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYV1jAey720
