  1. Today
  2. I admittedly haven't really dug into this tour at all. I've had 3/7 Montreux for several years, but then I don't usually listen to anything from '70 until the summer tour starts in August. I've listened to 3/21 Vancouver, and it's great, but short. Checked out 3/27 LA for the first time two months ago, and it was pretty good, but I didn't finish. Have heard great things about 4/17 Memphis, especially the epic HMMT.
  3. Houston 3/29/70. How Many More Times is just outstanding and has the crowd loving every minute Tampa 4/9/70 same comments as above! Memphis 4/17/70 same comments as above!
  4. The Blues will beat them in Boston. You will be sitting their looking stupid Your Bruins come off of a sweep of an upstart, young Carolina team, having dodged the Tampa Lightning by sheer luck, after Columbus did the real work for them. Columbus had them on the ropes. If that puck does not hit the post in game 5 Columbus would have been up 3-2 and likely won the series The Blues had to beat Bishop, a very daunting task in itself, beat San Jose, a team that really believed this was their year, and a team that was experienced and battle tested. These Blues are battle tested vs stiffer competition. Including a Winnipeg team some thought could win the Cup
  5. Too funny....that's our local morning show that's been on for many, many years. Russ, the head guy on the show, is a huge KISS fan. Back in '96 when they came to town on their reunion tour, we dressed up as KISS for the show and for a pre-party they - "The Monsters" - were hosting. I have a picture of us from that night somewhere... Anyway, Ace Frehley is going to play a show for "Monsterween" at City Walk/Universal Studios on October 27. That coincides with Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios.
  6. "Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You" - Led Zeppelin
  7. When this first came out I thought they wrote it. When I then heard the original I could not believe how different they were, but both are fantastic.
  8. If you like this type of stuff, the whole album is called Horizontal, by Moodswings. It is the third Moodswings album, out in 2002. Much spacier than their first 2 - Moodfood and Psychedelicatessen . Anyway, I can only find a few tracks from this double CD on YouTube to post. The real title of this one is Opium at 45 Degrees, a second version of the track Opium on the first disc. The other tracks on YouTube are the more conventional ones with vocals - the best ones are not on YouTube as far as I can find.
  9. I met Jimmy at his home in Windsor in 1988. He was very polite and nice and spoke to me for about 15 minutes and shook my hand.

  11. I've never seen this memorial - where's it at? Makes me wonder what memorials will be erected when the other members eventually pass on. Something on par with Strawberry Fields in NYC or even grander I imagine.
  12. what hockey team have you been watching? Bruins in 5
  13. I'm trying to gather shows from all tours and showcase them as a sort of "what if there were 4 to 6 concerts on each deluxe edition release." I'm having a bit of trouble picking a night for this tour. This would be attached to Led Zeppelin II. More info on my project here. Quality of the concert aside, what are your favorites from tour?
  14. I've finished my pick for UK/Scandinavia 1969. This is a showcase of the Danish shows March 15 – 17. I've ordered the setlist in a way that was typical to this tour. I was able to cheat a little bit since the Danmarks concert was already on the DVD, so this was a quickie. More info about which gig was used for each song, etc. is in the video description. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgSXPaRQHfY
  15. You did a great job. My new soundtrack this week !!!

  21. It is interesting to think back to those times in 1975-77. None of my close friends saw Zep until 1977. We knew some older friends who saw them in 1975. They just said they were blown away and it was the greatest concert ever - no comments about Plant's voice. I do recall wondering about the vocals on some of HOTH in 1973 thinking what is that? NQ - I get the atmospherics. But TSRTS vocals? Did not seem right to me. Still don't. But I digress. When PG came out it was just so overwhelming. I never really thought about the vocal change. Every Zep album was different so I just thought he is singing this way to fit the mood of the song. I loved the dark vibe to his voice in things like Kashmir, Trampled, Dying Time, Sick again, Custard Pie, Wanton Song. So much of that album had a dark and mysterious vibe to it. Same thing for Presence. Loved every bit of it and thought Plant was perfect for the songs. I was not thinking his voice changed or was shot - I was thinking these songs and lyrics and delivery are so great and so different. Then the movie and soundtrack came out in fall 1976 and again, none of us thought "oh his voice is shot". We just loved the music. One thing I really noticed was how much better I liked the vocals in TSRTS track compared to the album version. And the Rain Song - so much better vocals live on that soundtrack than on HOTH. Then I finally saw them in 1977 and was blown away by Plant's vocals, and of course all the rest of it. I did not hear my first bootleg til around 1979 - the BBC 1971 session. I guess I was so involved in digging the music and the newness of PG and Presence, I never really thought his voice changed. I thought he just changed his approach to fit the songs and lyrics. Looking back now and hearing so many live shows over the years it is all so obvious, but back in 75-76 I was not thinking about his voice may have changed, and none of my friends ever said anything about that - we just all loved every bit of Zeppelin. Maybe because I was 16 and it was all so overwhelming to get a double album like PG after waiting 2 years from HOTH. Or maybe because his voice could sound so different from album to album and track to track anyway across all the albums.
