  1. He did look horrid...also there seemed to be no *joy* onstage...contrast the Seattle '77 vid with one of the Earls Court vids or one from before...HUGE difference... Also, Dazed live was good but by '75 it was not a "jam" anymore, but a tightly structured piece played note-for-note night in and night out...it was retired just in time...
  2. I should have said STUDIO albums...the newer releases (BBC, HTWWW) certainly do...
  3. Agreed, I don't have any LZ CDs that credit WLL w/Willie Dixon...
  4. No, unfortunately there is not...
  5. Yeah that is a fucking great show! I also love the Baton Rouge show 2/28/75...
  6. I didn't say Seattle '73 was unknown, just that it's usually not mentioned as a classic '73 show (the way Kezar, the two LA shows, of the MSG ones are)... I also dig Mobile, New Orleans, and Ft Worth on '73... and the second night in Cleveland '77 is fantastic but most people only go for the first night because of the SBD...
  7. I've always loved the Seattle show on 7/17/73...a really good show that seems to fly under the radar from that tour...
  8. Well frig, I stand corrected again, although I'm skeptical as to how the technology of 1970 would have handled such a screen...
  9. I was too young to have known him personally or have ever met him but I do recall hearing the name (I'm from southern NH and spent a lot of time in Boston, still do)... That'd be something if it did exist, but who knows?
  10. ^I highly doubt Bath '70 had video screens...if it was indeed even taped it was most likely for broadcast purposes but who knows if that's even true... I wonder if all 4 Landover shows were taped, or even if 1 was...we do know for sure from photographic evidence that Pontiac was, though... Surprised the first 3 nights at Earls Court haven't surfaced on video...
  11. We have people here who were at the Houston gig who say it was not taped, and no pictures to prove otherwise, so safe to say it was not. We *do* have photographic proof that Pontiac and Landover were, though...
  12. A Silverdome show would be awesome. I have The Who's record-breaking (until LZ 2 years later) show from the Silverdome in 1975 on video and it's super cool...
  13. ^I was talking about the audio boot set...
  14. The Garden Tapes boot (all 3 nights complete or as complete as possible) is all I listen to from these shows...
  15. I'm going to see a favorite band of mine, ...And You Will Knows Us By the Trail Of Dead on March 1 in Boston...can't wait. They're newest album, which came out this past Tuesday, is fucking EPIC!
  16. I hope someday all of his Zep and Who shows see the light of day. He's like the Mike Millard of Louisiana!
  17. Yep. A really great atmosphere on the recording as well...Mid-Feb through the end of the US tour was really good in 1975...I know a lot of people slag '75 but I quite like it!
  18. I hope someday the '77 BR show sees the light of day...they were rounding into form by that stage of the tour (just prior to Houston and the Landover run) so it's probably a pretty damn good show!
  19. I can see this...even by 1980 Jimmy hadn't cleaned up his act...the tour happened to be short enough that there weren't as many low-points overall as there were in 1977 as far as his erratic performances. However I am always shocked when I've read more recent interviews where he states he's proud of his work from that period and thinks the drugs didn't affect him at all...I'm always like "really?"
  20. Fantastic analysis and I have to say I agree with you. Plant couldn't have cared less about Zeppelin after 1977 and so in a way it's good the band ended when it did, although not HOW it did. Also given Page's sharp decline, this was a good thing...was he *really* in shape for another massive US Tour in 1980/81? I liken Page to a star athlete who was great as a rookie (1968-1971), hit his peak/prime (1972-1973), had an excellent plateau period (1975), and then hit a sharp decline/major injury where he could still have flashes of the old glory (1977) to the over-the-hill athlete with one or two really good performances mixed in with a whole slew of mediocrity/downright awfulness (1979-1980)...
  21. Wow, really? You're the first person I know who's said that! Have you heard the VFABP tracks?
  22. The real shame is that except for SF 12/13/71 and Young Vic in April '71, it's a year that was AMAZING for The Who but has loads of rubbish recordings, sound-wise. Same with 1972 and 1973 (which is a crime...Quad is my favorite Who album!)
  23. I've been a Pumpkins fan since the beginning...Gish. Love them.
  24. That Amsterdam show is a killer...there a few goofs during Tommy but overall it's awesome. Little bit of trivia...when running up the stairs to go onstage at the beginning of the show, Moon tripped and fell and bloodied himself pretty badly...still played the entire show. This is a guy who played some gigs in 1969 with a BROKEN FOOT...just downed a LOAD of pills and played. The guy was a nut, but one of the best drummers ever!
