    2019 NFL Thread

    I haven't been a regular around here since the old board. Not sure I'll be sticking around but for a little NFL chat why not. I'll just say it's funny seeing a Buffalo Bills guy talk so much about his team in this thread (and I admire that). Here's my simple take on Buffalo: You have a running quarterback and running quarterbacks ALWAYS eventually get hurt (no one seems to remember that FACT). The Bills haven't done anything other than start 5-2. They might be a wild card team unless New England folds due to injuries and bad luck and hands them the division which I do not see happening.
  2. I have the feeling that Tea For One wasn't played because SIBLY was so great in the movie which came out after Presence. Tea For One is mostly the same musically as SIBLY (both in C Aeolian Minor) so you wouldn't have needed both in the set. For a fresh new song I think it should have been given a chance in 1977. Maybe they felt it was a little too dark, too slow, too long. And let's face it - SIBLY is a classic song while Tea For One is not. As far as I'm Gonna Crawl goes - great song with an interesting chord progression throughout. I have no idea why they didn't at least attempt i
  3. 36-23-36 are a female's dimensions. 36 inch bust, 29 inch waist, 36 inch hips. Not an AGE!
  4. I haven't been on here in years and have been in hiding on Tatooine. But I felt a disturbance in the force... Everything you just said is WRONG. (1) Your knowledge of stage recording is wrong and (2) your ears can't tell the difference. So now here I am. I have played music for over 30 years including live shows on stages, have set up multitrack recording for a couple of live shows in a live setting, can play music by ear, and have been listening to TSRTS since 1986 (all before you were born). That likely makes me more qualified than you on both topics. Let's start with y

    "On-Line Dating"

    I tried online dating 10-11 years ago and met a few ladies, but not much came of them. My cousin did meet someone on a dating site and they did get married, so it does work for some people! Happy to say I've been with the same wonderful woman for over 8 years now - and I met her the old fashioned way, I approached her in person!
  6. I Gotta Move is cool. They got the date wrong on that YouTube clip, it's not from 1968. It's from March 1969. There's been specualtion as to whether it was recorded in Stockholm or Copenhagen. I have to check on that again.
  7. Gotta love It'll Be Me! I loved when they would play that.
  8. It sounds like you are talking about the 9/29/71 Osaka show tape that being with Bonham yelling "Testing Testing! Louder!" Then he launches them into Immigrant Song. It was such a shock to see all those board tapes surface in 1988-1989. Prior to that, there were zero soundboards from 1975 and 1980. Then those albums started coming out really fast for a while. My first Zep CD boot was Zurich 1980, which I believe might have been the very first Zep CD bootleg. It was weird seeing a bootleg on CD if you can believe it!

    Best Live CD

    My favorite live Zeppelin album is How The West Was Won, but I'm biased. Perhaps my all-time favorite concert was the 6/25/72 Los Angeles show and half of HTWWW is from that show. If I could have any live album of a Zep show, I probably would have wanted that one and I got it - so it's a no-brainer for me.

    Top 5 bootlegs

    Thanks, yeah. The old board here was so cool. But that was a long, long time ago!
  11. Probably, but thanks to the internet, we can get all those shows for free now. Then again, I'm sure there are still people out there who don't know that bootlegs exist and will still find them at record conventions and buy them.
  12. I heard Heartbreaker from Southampton 1973 the other day on XM. What a weird choice considering how the levels for the guitar and bass go up and down dramatically (someone was really messing around during the mixdown for this one).

    Top 5 bootlegs

    My favorite 5 in no order: Los Angeles 6/25/1972 Osaka 9/29/1971 New York 9/19/1970 (evening show) San Francisco 4/27/1969 Hamburg 3/21/1973 These have been pretty solid choices over the years. I've been listening to the Osaka and San Francisco shows for over 20 years now - still great stuff!
  14. One thing I would hope see surface someday is the complete 2 track multitrack mixdown of the Los Angeles (and Long Beach) shows from 1972. The 3 songs we've had since the early 90's from Long Beach are from this source. Certainly better than any audience or soundboard tape!
  15. You are correct. The original date for the Paris Studio show was March 25th, but was postponed due to problems with Robert's voice. The show was performed on April 1st, and an extremely edited broadcast of it was aired on the BBC April 4th. What a bummer that you had tickets to Zeppelin and they cancelled it! In 1971 no less, very cool!
  16. Nice, I'll have to grab that one.
  17. The Long Beach tape is not a soundboard tape. It's a (damn near perfect) 2 track mixdown from the multitracks. What's annoying is that the entire show probably exists in that quality and the world just got a taste of it. Since we got HTWWW, it kind of eases the pain a bit! It is interesting that we have nothing from the board from 1972 though. If any surfaced, I'd expect them to sound similar to the 1971 or 1973 board tapes. Do not expect Long Beach quality, like I said, it's not from the board.
  18. My first show that I bought were a few. It was May 1987, and I was at a record convention as we called them. There was a dealer who had boxes of Zeppelin bootleg LPs. I bought the 4/27/69 show which was in 2 box sets, and both set came with a T-shirt of the album cover! The big appeal to me was the amount of unknown song titles on it (they broke the As Long As I Have You medley into indivdual song titles as well as How Many More Times). I also bought the 4/27/77 Cleveland show, so my first two shows are pretty well known. The 1969 show is still a personal favorite of mine, but I kind of
  19. There could be a lot more out there than you know, but it's a lot of rumors. The Pontiac Silverdome show was shot on video for the big videoscreen above the stage, though I don't know if it's any more of a "production" than Seattle. Houston almost definitely was videotaped as well. Keep in mind many arenas did have in-house closed circuit TV systems (Richfield Coliseum, Landover Capital Center, Madison Square Garden, Houston Summit to name a handful) and it's possible (not for sure) that many of the shows performed at these venues were videotaped in one way or another. They did not hav
  20. I'm a big fan of the Bournemouth show from December 1971. I wish an unmastered source of the complete tape would surface.
  21. The 1975 board tapes do sound amazing, but they are not multitrack tapes (as has been said). They were recorded most likely to 1/4 inch reels at a much higher tape speed than a typical cassette tape deck (as Jimmy used on the 1977 tour - a Nakamichi deck) which will result in superior quality. In addition, it is widely speculated that these board tapes were recorded by Showco employees, possibly without the band's consent! The Southampton 1973 tape is simply a very crude, and quick 2 track mixdown from the multitrack tapes - it is not a soundboard tape and if mixed properly, would sound a
