  1. I'll have to say Coda, obviously...but if we're going solely on studio albums, as much as I love ITTOD, I love it least of all LZ albums...if Hot Dog and All My Love had been replaced by Ozone Baby, Darlene, Wearing and Tearing, and Fire, it would have been a totally kick ass album...
  2. Their last gigs in California were in 1977 and as far as I know since 1973 or so they used the Starship/Caesar's Chariot and were ferried around in limos...
  3. Well yeah, as much as I love Jimmy's playing, he's always been a bit sloppy. Still, in 1977 it was beyond sloppy, although when he was on he was still the man...
  4. 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...
  5. I understand what people are saying with '77...that being there it was awesome and the sound is super thin on the '77 SBDs (which I agree with)...but to complain that the SBDs expose all the mistakes (especially from Jimmy)? So the volume/lesser quality PA masked it in '77 if you were there, great, and that it sounded better, cool, but it cannot be denied that was not a good period (overall) for Jimmy...
  6. 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...
  7. It actually dates from the '73 versions of Dazed...
  8. That whole section was the genesis for them writing ALS...
  9. There were other mitigating reasons for Plant's cracking voice in '75...
  10. With all of the '75 and '77 SBDs that have seen the light of day the last few years, I think its safe to say we'll see more. Hell some of the '75 ones were of shows where there wasn't even an AUD source...
  11. I've been finding a lot of factual errors in there...it's not secret he thinks every other band other than Zeppelin sucks (at least that comes across very prominently in his writing) as he takes digs at the Who and Stones quite often. One huge factual error where he tries to take a swipe at the Stones is when he mentions Plant jabbing the Stones with "the vibes are better here than at Madison Square Garden" from one of the Nassau Coliseum, Long Island shows in mid-June. rey then says "the Rolling Stones were receiving huge press coverage at that venue at the same time"...which is dead-WRONG!
  12. Well frig, I stand corrected again, although I'm skeptical as to how the technology of 1970 would have handled such a screen...
  13. I liked TSRTS as an opener although Jimmy constantly banging on that opening chord before the band start the show, to me, killed the momentum. Had there been complete silence and then they just belted out the song, the effect would have been more stunning...
  14. '77 had by far the best, most varied setlist of Zep's career...another song or two from Presence (For Your Life!! Royal Orleans!) would have been awesome, as would a few more acoustic songs...
  15. 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?
  16. Never heard of even a hint of that existing...would be awesome if it did, though...
  17. ^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...
  18. 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...
  19. ^Yeah the Winston version of Southampton is fucking ace! Kezar is great, too!
  20. 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...
  21. ^They *did* do a full version of Out on the Tiles, LA 9/4/70...
  22. Yeah the Spokane one is the only one known to exist, but you never know...stranger things have happened!
  23. Well his voice, while weak in '74 (listen to the PG tracks from then!) and '75, was basically recovered in '77. He was losing his high range by late '72 anyway, although in '73 he was still pretty strong. But he got most of it back in mid '77 and especially in '80. I think it was nodes on the vocal chords, which as far as I know necessitate surgery...
  24. I agree, although there are some exceptions, for me the best shows of 1975 are from the middle of Feb (the last MSG and Nassau shows) to the end (LA Forum)
