  1. Tour Programs: Visual Thing USA Summer 1969 1975 US Tour Earls Court 1977 US Tour Knebworth I'd love to find the 1970 Bath Fest., '71 and '72 Japan, and Australian '72 books, but they're all priced in the stratosphere by now. Post-Zep Tour Programs: 1985 & 86 Firm 1988 Outrider Coverdale/Page Japan Page/Plant 1995 and 1998 Jimmy & Black Crowes 2000 Robert Plant Japan 1984 and US 1985 and Dreamland 2002 Photo Books: The Photographer's Led Zeppelin Neal Pretson's Portraits Live Dreams Led Zeppelin Over Europe by Jean-Pierre Leloir Hexagonal Experiences by Christo
  2. +3. Best of the marathon versions of the tune. For the shorter versions, Providence '73 is one of the great ones. Jimmy did some very cool solos on the late 1998 Page/Plant versions. Worth checking out. The O2 is it's own thing. Very good, JPJ nailed the right sound for the piano, something Phil Andrews never came close to in '98.
  3. You're being a bit harsh, but I agree. Jimmy has plenty of money, and can do what he wants. Apparently, he doesn't want to do music at all, unless it's Zeppelin music, in front of huge, adoring crowds. Understandable to a certain degree, but a monumental waste of talent, if you ask me. Meanwhile, Robert's exploits have run the gamut in the last 10 years, from playing pubs with The Priory to opening for The Who to headlining theaters again with his own band, and now, the success of Raising Sand. I doubt that Robert really needs to work as much as he does, but even if he really needs the
  4. The one linking to the first complete recording making the rounds is already gone. Lasted about five minutes.
  5. I'd like to see them, but no stadiums, please. Also, no $400 tickets either. Make the top price $100, and leave it at that. They'll still make money on the shows. And another thing: no opening act! A Cream-type scenario would be cool, only with more gigs, perhaps 15-20, and they really should do a few in their home country. The UK only had Earl's Court and Knebworth after early '73. But if the O2 was really the last one, that's OK.
  6. Exactly. Even the best of the YouTube clips are all but unwatchable and unlistenable. The music is usually out of sync with the footage, and they sound like they were recorded underwater. The only reason anybody bothers with them is because it's the only way to get a sense of what happened almost immediately. The big record co.'s like Warners are utterly clueless. If they had any idea what's happening NOW, they'd understand that low-quality video and audio will only increase demand for a professionally released recording. After all, how many people prefer the old audience boots of the
  7. There's a huge difference between what Cream did and what The Police are doing. The Police are playing everywhere, and have been going nonstop since June, with just a couple short breaks in between. If you're a big Police fan, you had a good shot at seeing them close to home. Cream's seven shows in two cities over six months really didn't do much to address demand for a legendary band with its original lineup intact. They could have done much, much more. There's a third way of going about it: Dave Gilmour and Genesis both did relaxed tours, but many more gigs than Cream, and not as m
  8. First post here. Hello! Robert's never really stopped gigging since he left Page in '98. Unless he gets the flu, he'll be alright. Just don't expect him to sound like he did on "How The West Was Won." That high, keening wail Plant used to have has been gone for about 35 years. He's figured out how to get along without it. He's a better singer in many ways, but don't be surprised if some of the songs performed at the O2 gig are transposed to a lower key, even if it's just a half-step lower than the album versions. Robert will be 60 next year, after all. As far as Page's playing g
