  1. I guess this thread is as good as any to submit the following. As some of you may know, I have been going through my old magazines reading Led Zeppelin stories and interviews from back in the day. I came across this interview Lisa Robinson wrote for Hit Parader on the occasion of the New York Premiere of "The Song Remains the Same". Excerpted from the April 1977 issue of Hit Parader. I have bold-faced the most interesting parts. Great find! I have been approaching this fall with an open mind and cautious optimism. The Page and Plant quotes from the article you rediscovered provide me with some sound reassurance. Thanks for the post.
  2. I came across this info from a video of the listening party for the Zep studio album remasters in 2014 . Page was asked about the first album remaster bonus disc Paris Olympia 69' concert recording … at 35 seconds he answers that the band didn't multitrack live shows until RAH 1/70. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELpnLmDtXWg
  3. I agree it would be fantastic. I recently watched most of the film for the first time in a long time. It is a pleasure to see the band onstage in 73 despite the production limitations. I have the 2007 version. I'll stick with that for now.
  4. I would think if Page is regularly playing or semi regularly playing out next year then an invitation to Crossroads may be of one the wonderful options available to Page. Either Page and his next band playing some songs (similar to what Beck, Santana and others have done) or perhaps Page sitting in with Clapton and band for one song with Page as a guest(similar to what Keith Richards did). I think both men respect and appreciate each other's musicianship. Both have been down the long and winding road of a musician. I would think Clapton would love to have Page included.
  5. Sounds like you're approaching this with much care. It does sound like a monumental project . A labor of love I'm sure. I like the idea of capturing the spirit and energy of a continuous concert. For me I'm not out to knock TSRTS. I'm glad we have it. So you will be using stills? Best of luck I look forward to checking out your project.
  6. I wish you well with this project. I hope you can find as much footage as possible . Is the project about capturing the spirit and energy of a continuous live concert? I am curious how you will be handling situations where footage does not exist. Have you considered using still pictures as Zep did for the Royal Albert Hall show on the Zep dvd.? I think using still pictures could be part of the solution. I hope you do not go the route of the Immigrant song on the LZ dvd. It's great to see in all but for me it's too much moving around. I have little to no experience with editing but I wanted to share this thought when I heard of your idea.
  7. happy b-day... thanks for the memories, looking forward to what's next, be well
  8. I take it these photos are never before seen? If so, it always amazes me when new items surface. These pictures are remarkably clear.
  9. I think the The Grateful Dead music has alot to offer. I like the songwriting, improvisation, space jams, covers. I like the way they draw on the Americana songbook (blues, R&B, folk, jazz, bluegrass).
  10. great pic. It sounds so obvious but wow he looks young in this photo. Maybe in part because the picture is offstage and away from the hype. It looks like it could be in somebody's 70s wood paneled basement. To me Plant looks like almost any guy from the late 70s a little bit buzzed on a Saturday night.
  11. Brian seems like a natural radio host. Mostly non Zep stuff which I also find very enjoyable to hear about. I swelled with pride as a Zep fan hearing Plant's complimentary comment about JPJ's bass line for Ramble On. Cool to hear Plant talk about some of JB' cars. I didn't realize Plant only lived 5 miles away from JB in those days. I noticed it's available to listen to for the next seven days.
  12. maybe I purchase online or I still like rummaging through used CD stores...
