  1. I guess most mainstream fans would prefer that. But there are hundreds of bootlegs, many of which are EXCELLENT already, live and outtakes (from all era's). Personally I would prefer and proper 24bit remaster of the old catalog from the original multi-track tapes. Not just the 2 track first generation masters (but that would do), but a whole new, maybe even slightly tweaked on the re-mix, remaster.
  2. This makes NO mention of a new remastering. Other than the compressed, boosted like mad Mothership, there hasn't been a proper remastering since the 1990 George Marino/Jimmy Page remasters. Technology has improved immensly since then and they could make the old material sound BETTER THAN EVER, if they wanted to.
  3. And once again, DOWN, DOWN, DOWN, today down 679 pts., 7 days of plummeting in a row. Funny, when Wall St. thought the bill wasn't going to pass, the mkt. went up. After it's passed, it's dropped like a fucking boulder. BIG MISTAKE ! Let the free market reign, some winners some losers, the government should've stayed COMPLETELY out of it.
  4. Ok for Jimmy. But I've been trying to find a photo with ALL of them with beards. Seems March '71 would be the last time. I've looked now for about an hour !!!!! Dayum !!!!!!!!! John Bonham's beard March 28, 1970
  5. You mean a fag ? Who the hell is that playing the conga's? He's got a beard.
  6. Here's what I've got so far. They each had a beard on their May 3, 1971 show, except I couldn't find a pic of Bonzo. I DID find a pic of Bonzo from March 23, 1971 and I don't see a beard. So I'll keep going back.
  7. Thanks JRomero! Glad to know. Now I wonder when he last used used it from '69 to those dates in '80. Yeah, here's Jimmy on the 20th in Aussie... I didn't immediately find pics from the 25th or 27th..but he was beardless by the 29th. The others were free of beards too. I'll look back to '71 or '70 to try to find the last pic with them all bearded.
  8. I should have been more specific in asking about a last Led Zep performance that Jimmy used his Tele on. I don't know about the '80 tour and his usage of a Telecaster. Hmmm. Could be though. And I don't know specifically what guitars he used in the studio. I shouldn't be lazy and should research my own question. Here's a couple of excerpts from a '77 interview. Not saying exactly when he last used a tele onstage with Zep, but I'm now guessing it would have been early 1969. I know full well the first album was pretty much exclusively the Tele and early performances. I just don't know the last date for his live appearance with it. What kind of guitar were you suing on the first Led Zeppelin album? JP: A Telecaster. I used the Les Paul with the Yardbirds on about two numbers and a Fender for the rest. You see the Les Paul Custom had a central setting, a kind of out-of-phase pickup sound which Jeff couldn’t get on his Les Paul, so I used mine for that. Was the Telecaster the one Beck gave to you? JP: Yes. There was work done on it but only afterwards. I painted it; everyone painted their guitars in those days. And I had reflective plastic sheeting underneath the pick guard that gives rainbow colors. It sounds exactly like a Les Paul. JP: Yeah, well that’s the amp and everything. You see, I could get a lot of tones out of the guitar, which you normally couldn’t. This confusion goes back to those early sessions again with the Les Paul. Those might not sound like a Les Paul, but that’s what I used. It’s just different amps, mike placings, and all different things. Also, if you just crank it up to the distortion point so you can sustain notes, it’s bound to sound like a Les Paul. I was using the Supro amp for the first album and still do. The “Stairway To Heaven” solo was done when I pulled out the Telecaster, which I hadn’t used for a long time, plugged it into the Supro, and away it went again. That’s a different sound entirely from any of the rest of the first album. It was a good versatile setup. I’m using a Leslie on the solo on “Good Times Bad Times”. It was wired up for an organ thing. What concert by Zep was the last where they ALL had full beards ?
  9. Yeah, that one! Mr. Baritone, Doug Ingle spying on that lovely chick in the first row!!!!!!!!!!!!
  10. Do you mean download from the web? Surf, find, point, click, direct, organize, convert, burn....poof, you've got it! And yes, Sweet Baby IS Train kept a rollin' on your bootleg.
  11. The Japan shows in October of 1972, Robert hit some of the high notes (and some cracked ones) he acheived in the summer of that year. That was the last of that attempt. What was the last concert Jimmy Page used a Telecaster on any song?
  12. Another repackaging without a mention of any new Jimmy Page remastering. I don't like how they remastered Mothership, but a new meticulous remaster of the entire catalog is long overdue, and NOT with all the levels pushed to oblivion. Get with the program!!!
  13. Alright!! A new DVD of the FULL Who, before Mooney passed. As far as the '69 content, if they include all of Tommy and the other tunes mentioned, that's nearly a complete concert of it's own. I MUCH MORE look forward to that part. The Who at the Isle of Wight 1970 is great. The early years were easily the best.
  14. I'd rather see the Reverend Cleophus elected.
