  1. Hmmm, didn't know there was that possibility...interesting...
  2. Custard Pie would have been awesome...they could have jammed out at the end with Jones and Bonham breaking into some killer grooves while Jimmy wailed over it...
  3. It's certainly better than the chintz studio version...
  4. ^Dude I agree with you except they didn't play Dazed *at all* in '77...maybe you were thinking of Jimmy's wanking guitar/noise solo? I agree though and have said before, the overall vibe of the tour, the feel, even coming through the recordings, is not good. There are some excellent shows (Dallas was certainly not one of them...the beginning of the tour was awful with the band severely underrehearsed), but the Cleveland, Pontiac, Maryland, NYC, and LA shows were all very good, some even great. One other thing no one mentions is that Robert was taking loads of painkillers because of th
  5. ^Really Jimmy was the weak link in 1977...Plant was way better than he was in '75 and Bonzo and Jones were on, but Jimmy was so inconsistent...from genius to crap in the same song, nevermind gig to gig...
  6. Southampton '73 has a killer Thank You, too...
  7. ^Yes but never on the double neck...
  8. I haven't listened to the Toronto '71 board in a while...I need to dig it out...
  9. If I remember correctly the Toronto SBD sounds good, although it's not one of the better shows on the tour...still good, though...
  10. Was this guy just like "oh hold on, I have my KEYBOARD right here?" and pulled it out of his pocket? I mean, a Casio that fits under your arm didn't exactly exist in 1971...
  11. I'm listening to the 3 nights in LA from '75...the Millard tapes (also his Long Beach ones from this same tour) are fantastic...
  12. ^I agree...by '75 Dazed was rigidly structured and in '77 there was hardly no improv...I *do* think the NQ's from '75 and '77 were fantastic improvs (for the most part) however...
  13. Yale isn't that good, and the Toronto '71 show is a decent enough SBD but the show isn't the best '71 show...if you want good '71, check out the LA Forum gigs (sound is decent), the Berkeley gigs (ditto) and the Orlando SBD/AUD mix...
  14. Any show from the first of the tour (Dortmund) to Frankfurt are very good, although Zurich is the best. After that it seems they got tired...
  15. I have collected every show the band ever did at the LA Forum (these span 1970 to 1977) and would love to have them ALL in SBD quality (except the Millard tapes, obviously). Right now I am listening to 6/3/73 which is incredible, but to have it in a SBD would be heaven...
  16. ^Not really...they played "Killing Floor" which it (bascially rips off) is based on, but that was well before LZII came out (see the 4/27/69 show) but otherwise they never played it as a stand-alone track after LZII came out...
  17. ^I can agree with Tea For One replacing SIBLY...especially hearing that kick-ass (and too short) intro riff live!
  18. Last Moby Dick was in Seattle '77, yes?
  19. I've always dug this show...not the best but not the worst by any stretch, and the long and new version of WLL to end it is pretty cool...
  20. A Bath SBD would be fucking EPIC...
  21. Yes. The WR is incredible...I had the same copy of this show for years before picking up the WR some months back and my jaw just dropped... It's definitely worth it man, get it!
  22. ^I was talking about the audio boot set...
  23. The 1980 US Tour was to start in late October 1980. From everything I've read over the years, Plant had flat out said NO to going back to the USA, but he agreed to the 1980 Euro tour. When that tour ended (early July 1980) Grant was able to convince Plant to do it, and THEN began planning the tour, getting tickets printed, t-shirts, etc...Bonzo didn't die until the end of Sept 1980...
  24. The Garden Tapes boot (all 3 nights complete or as complete as possible) is all I listen to from these shows...
  25. 1980 was a short jaunt compared to the sheer length of 1977...and the (deliberately) scaled-down set gave it more the feeling (at least to me) of a warm-up for the impending 1980 US Tour Peter Grant had been planning all along (but not telling Robert about until after)...
