  1. Though written rather simplistically, I thought the book was really interesting. I'd recommend it to anyone who's read Hammer of the Gods multiple times and is looking for another perspective. ... The Man Who Led Zeppelin... cheeky sub title to boot.
  2. "Four Rovers in Landover" Cap Center 1977-05-30. "Ten Years Gone" at the moment. There is something wrong with TSRTS... I think I'll try reconverting it... because the sound quality improves drastically as soon as Sick Again starts. Haven't had this on in ages. Pretty much all killer so far.
  3. Not sure what possessed me to stop by here for the first time in years, but hello, everyone. I couldn't help but be drawn into this thread. 1977-06-23 is the one I usually choose if someone insists on hearing a live version of this piece. Granted, there are plenty of holes in my collection. I see a couple of things I'll have to look for next time I'm on the hunt. This is normally not one of my favorite tunes to hear live, despite the album version (and album it's from) being one of my all time favorites. Slightly off topic, but this keeps popping up in the thread, my personal opinion about the 1980 tour is that the audience tapes sound better. The reverb of the hall, and mix from the front of house speakers are what they band intended the audience to hear. Interesting little tangent Jimmy takes at around 8min in the vid above, but I can't count that as my (the) fav. As has been stated, YouTube videos with still images could be anything, but "Tour Over Europe 1980" in my somewhat dated experience normally refers to Zurich, and I'll go out on a limb and say, that is what you have in the video above.
  4. "St. Paul Master" lz1973-07-09cas.dat.cdrN.eac.cep just hit the transition from Rock and Roll into Celebration Day (edit) HOLY No Quarter!!! only drawback, you need some "bootleg ears" and perhaps a nice EQ to really get into it. not suitable for top-down cruising, but at the risk of being repetitive, Holy No Quarter! (/edit) (edit) ... and the audience is surprisingly responsive to Moby Dick (/edit)
  5. "Last Stand" Berlin 1980-07-07trw1999 It's kind of a bummer too, but currently "Trampled Underfoot" is really hot "Push! Push!"
  6. is amazed his account still exists

  8. I think I'm going in for a make-over

  10. Here's how I spent my $50 itunes gift card given to me at Christmas by my aunt. I tried posting the images inline from my yahoo japan and flikr accounts, but the board won't accept 'dynamic links' in image tags. I think I've posted photos from geocities before, but I'm sick of dealing with it at the moment.

That's what I get for being slow. That's quite a big difference too! Darkly ironic too considering Fogelberg's recent passing. Two of my all-time favorite recordings. These are desert island discs for me. Enjoy.

Page's Badgeholders Club Band part 1 10 08/1/17 12:28 PM Dusk 5:55 Sachiko Kunado 2 08/1/17 12:22 PM Been experimenting with the shuffle feature. Right on, I've been dragging my feet on the new one. I had to pay premium to get the Collectors Edition DVD cause they were all sold out on pre-order. I'll pick it up next time I'm near HMV record store. It won't be going out of stock any time soon. :-) Great tune! My cousin lent me the Janis 3 disc box set for a while back in the 90s. Love this period and this song. Great song, no doubt. and the transition from Upon A Golden Horse is excellent. Great sig pic btw. the sunburst Plant. Nice! Someone else listening to Rusted Root. This is such a great way to start an album. Ahh... very good news. Their first CD "Cruel Sun", I think it's called, is really good too. They rerecorded a lot of songs from it for "When I Woke", but the originals are cool too. it's more mellow, I think. I think Jen Wurz and Liz Berlin are both with the band again. Liz took some time off to become a mother. I'm really looking forward to their new CD if it has the original line-up. I think, by the time When I Woke came out, they'd been doing the indies scene with that sound for several years, so when they broke it may have been a chance for Mike Gabliki to experiment with the sound a bit. A friend of mine lived downstair from Mike around the time of Remember. He said he and Mike used to have some informal jam sessions on electric guitar in each others' apartments and occasionally Mike would say something along the lines of, 'that was pretty good, do you mind if I use that?' That's what my friend said, at least. As you said, though, the member changes certainly had an effect. I don't think I've had a chance to see them perform since When I Woke came out. Too bad really. One of my favorite bands from the 90s. Definitely looking forward to their new recording. Yeah, one of my favorites too. So much power. Such a great support performance (lead, really) by the female singer. Yeah, I love this album. Isis, One more Cup of Coffee, Hurricane the list goes on, great tunes.
  12. Katsurei 割礼 and Sakana さかな tonight at Tokuzo, Nagoya Japan (hope that ASCAP guy doesn't read this) The Crowes are in NZ eh? Good on'em! And it's hard to imagine the words 'Adrian Belew' and 'Power' in the same sentence, but I'll tak e your word for it.
  13. Raga Madhuvanthi -> Raga Kalavati Carlos Guerra - Bansuri (bamboo flute) Tetsuya Kaneko - Pakhavaj (double sided drum with bread dough on one head) Mah-ha - Ghatam (bulbous clay pot with a narrow opening) Mrs. Guerra - Tamboura (4 string drone instrument plays only one open chord) live sound by Tonchin at Shimauma Book Store, Nagoya Japan No results. The guy must've thought I was gonna get his torrent pulled. He gave me no reply..... Those are the guys that did I Just Wanna Celebrate right? The new version or the old version of TSRTS? How is that BTW? Is that the one with American Pie? You said it. I find myself thinking the same thing. I'm gonna hold you to that statement! I'll second THAT! Perfect for toolin' around in the hot rod. She's crafty!.... and she's just my type! One of my favorite VH songs. Sometimes I just can't get this out of my head. Gets no respect, though. Nice post!
  14. We are way off topic, but the only advantage of the CD burning deck over the USB turntable, is that you can choose your turntable... Probably not such a big issue to burn some old well used records, though. My TT is nothing special, that's for sure. Thanks for the brew,
