    Page's Best Playing Post Zeppelin

    My vote is for September '95 through July 2000. By the second half of the '95 Page & Plant shows, Jimmy was in fine form. He continued that level of playing on the '98 tour, and was in top gear for the shows with the Black Crowes. The thing that period has in common with early Zep is he was playing live consistently. He seems to need a good bit of time on the road to get into match form, not so much with his rhythm playing, but for his leads. In the early Zep days he was on the road for over four years basically non-stop, and he was just amazing. In the last half of the '90s he also was on the road consistently, although he not quite as frequently as the early Zep days, and his playing was first rate throughout.

    Memories of 1977

    For those of you who weren't around at the time, here's a good video summary of what was happening in pop culture in the US during the year of Zep's last tour here. I was around back then and this brings back quite a few memories, although I wish one of them was having gotten to see Zep play. Sadly, I was a little too young at the time.

    Deluxe Editions: CDs vs HD files

    HDTracks has a 25% off sale for the purchase of two or more albums going until March 21, 2019 11:59 PM Eastern. Use code BIRTHDAY11 at checkout. If it matters, I don't have any business affiliation with them and I do not make any money if you use that code. Here is their Zep section: https://www.hdtracks.com/music/artist/view/id/4858/
  4. Thanks. I think the bass needs to be toned down a bit, although it's always hard striking the right balance between having it make an impact without being overwhelming. I think I fixed it last night. I'll the full show when it's done.
  5. I'm working on 5/25/77. Still some cleanup to do, but close to the final version:

    Backstage arguments?

    My assumption about their arguments is that they were along the lines of "Bonzo, can you stop riding your motorcycle down the hall after 2:00 AM so I can get some sleep?" or "Bonzo, if you're going to throw my TV out the window, can you wait until after after the Wolves match is over?" To the latter, I assume Bonzo replied "I'm doin' you a favor so you don't have to watch them lose again."

    New EVSD soundboard?

    Are they going to dribble the songs out like they did with 9/29/71?

    Bron-Yr-Aur Live

    This is one of my favorite Zep songs. I Iove the delicate beauty of it, but unfortunately that works against it in live recordings. Aside from the versions you mentioned, I also like the outtake of it that I first heard on the old Toasted Condor disc Hiawatha Express. I still prefer the version that got officially released, but it's cool to hear a different take on it and the sound is at least listenable.

    Five Metal Albums That Blew Your Mind

    Riot - "Fire Down Under". Yet another great album with a terrible cover. An American band who had the same vibe, sound, and energy as the better known NWOBHM bands. This came out in 1981 and deserved a wider audience than it got. Here's the title track: And something more recent, the debut by Graveyard. Hard to pick my favorite track as they're all stellar. This track, "Evil Ways", starts slow and builds until you think you're speakers might burst into flames.

    Five Metal Albums That Blew Your Mind

    1 - The Stooges self titled. Not sure if they're metal or punk or just The Stooges, but the song "1969" blew me away when I first hear it, and still does to this day. The rest of the album is great, too: 2 - Electric Food - Terrible name, great band. A precursor to the mighty Lucifer's Friend. Early '70s hard rock with keyboards. Gun - Self Titled. "Devil's Gun" is the best known song from this late '60's debut. Lots of good stuff on the rest of the album Dust - Self Titled. Just awful cover art, but a hard rockin' album. Starts with "Stone Woman" and picks up from there: Sir Lord Baltimore - "Kingdom Come". Similar to Budgie in that they cranked out chunks of molten rock that not enough people heard.
