  1. The point that I was making is that it is my understanding that there were no multi-track recordings made of the Japanese tour made because Jimmy's then manager didn't allow it. If that is correct then there are no multi-track tapes in existence from which to pull live recordings to include on any future set. Maybe some soundboard tapes were made but that obviously wouldn't be the same quality level.
  2. I remember reading somewhere Coverdale said that Page's manager at the time refused to allow any official recording of the Coverdale/Page tour of Japan.
  3. Glad to be of help. I find it crazy that 3 out of the 4 members of Led Zeppelin had singles before the band.
  4. I think it's part jealousy and part attention seeking. Every time he bashes someone else it makes headlines and gets him and by extension The Who big publicity.
  5. I will buy the package day one. It is my favorite post-Zeppelin Jimmy Page project.
  6. John Paul Jones had another solo song called "Baja" but I don't think it meets your description as well but worth checking out as a possibility if it isn't "A Foggy Day In Vietnam."
  7. John Paul Jones had a pre-Led Zeppelin single called "A Foggy Day In Vietnam." Have you heard that? Is that it possibly? It kind of meets your description.
  8. Wow, That's a lot of great information. So do you feel that the slightly muddy or murky sound on many Led Zeppelin recordings is a creative choice and not a limitation of the recording technology?
  9. Is this the first master that had too much dynamic range for the turntables of the day and caused some needles to jump out of the groove?
  10. Some of this is correct but it's too much of a simplification. Firstly; and most importantly many times Jimmy Page has 4 or 5 layers of guitars playing the same part to give it that thick and heavy sound. For an example if you listen very closely to Black Dog it has one guitar part but that one part is made up of multiple layers of different performances of that one guitar part (probably 5 layers.) You can hear this same approach but with less guitars on "In My Time of Dying" where two different guitars play the same part. One has a fuzzier tone and one has a cleaner tone. Listen to it o
  11. Keep in mind that with analog tape every time you overdub something you get an additional layer of tape hiss. Since many times Jimmy Page had multiple layers of the same guitar part or multiple guitar parts at the same time the overall background noise of nearly song that they recorded in the studio was going to be higher. To my ears the worst offender is "Celebration Day" which sounds pretty murky and muddy, luckily it suits the song in a cool way because it adds a touch of mystery. Another potential issue is that many of the albums were recorded with mobile studios in unconventional
  12. Does anyone else think that this case might have been holding up 50th Anniversary or live album plans and things will start moving again?
  13. Is there any information on how much footage of the Zeppelin performance at the Texas International Pop Festival exists? What is the source? Is the available clip complete or is there more and it is just a sample?
  14. Being a member of the Rolling Stones would have been a complete waste of Jimmy Page's talent.
