    Backstage arguments?

    Thats really interesting about Bonzo. Think of how beautiful the drumming is even as early on as How Many More Times when he is whispering through the middle break and other light touches in later tracks like Ten Years Gone - it seems he did have a good understanding of light and shade. Maybe very early nerves???

    New EVSD soundboard?

    That's the rub! As dry and lifeless as they are, remasters or matrix's with good aud sources are the go! And as others say, there are some brilliant '77 gigs not yet out there. Personally, I'll be happy either way. A great new live show you say??? YAY!

    Random Thoughts v.3

    I cannot imagine what its going to be like 30-40 years from now when I think of 30-40 years ago. So incredibly fundamentally different. Will be interesting to see where we head. Hopefully the world will have a bucket of cold water thrown on it and come to it's senses somewhat and progress to a better place than what we seem to be in. Where if you want to really know about something you seek answers from knowledgeable people like academics, scientists, or acknowledged experts in the field. Where opinions are discussed, but basic truth is not up for debate but accepted. (the world actually is round! who knew!!!) Where communication and interaction somewhat goes back to people directly talking with all the politeness, nuance, body language, and reasonableness that that interaction brings. You know, where there is so much more civility. Where everything is not about clicks and advertising revenues or marketing angles.

    lol. I wonder about the setlist for the coming US tour that never eventuated. Surely White Summer was gone.

    Long Live Led Zeppelin

    That's harsh JTM. When I first found this forum and started getting into boots his was the first and main treasure trove. Without it I was lost and scrambling for scraps. Now I know some enjoy the hunt for boots and get into that as a challenge or mission or whatever, I'd rather spend time listening than searching. So to me Hunter provided a window into live shows I had no idea was so vast. Can't thank him enough. So to each their own, but understand, I'm incredibly thankful for good reason. I never encountered hunter taking credit for anything. I'm fully aware he collects from sources. Not sure if you are implying he should be giving more credit where it's due? Maybe a tag on each boot crediting the work of those that remaster or provide certain shows/titles??? Maybe, dunno... I do agree 100% about MP3's. I've even suggested over time and where possible boots get updated to flacs but since I don't bother making the effort to host a site, it's just a friendly suggestion. I'm willing to (and do) share what I have freely with others as it's all about enjoying the shows. I think that's the crux of Hunters site. To share these great treasures. To make them available freely and easily.

    What Made You Un-Happy Today ?

    Kiwi, that might not be a bad idea. Allow a specific slot of time for yourself to wallow/chill/tune out/self absorb - then BOOM! Get a plan together and renew yourself. Self pity or reflection can be useful when done right. Once done, leave it behind. Good luck with it all.

    New Mystery Soundboard?

    Agree. As frustrating as it is between releases, at least we get releases!!!!! I have hopes like everyone else for specific releases, but how crap would it be without any?!?!

    Long Live Led Zeppelin

    I would encourage the good folk of this forum to share any new gems found/acquired with hunter so he can continue to provide for us die hard fans. it's so good that there is so much available. I don't think I'll ever get over live Zep. I want it to be the last thing I hear and played at my damn funeral.

    Backstage arguments?

    Wow, that's interesting. Must've been good gear as the Copenhagen warm ups were unreal. Enough to clear the mind and "heighten" without it being too strong??? Strange.

    What's the weather like where you are?

    Finally the rain has come. Front lawn has gone from dead brown dust bowl to half green with lots of new green shoots. so 2 days of pretty solid rain, and now humidity is off the charts - still high 20's without the sun.

    Well you're GONNA know. A hangover from a vodka drinking session. After the second one, I have not had more than a single vodka at a time - EVER. It literally feels like someone has embedded a large axe in my skull. I was wishing for death. It lasted for between 1-2 hours but felt like an eternity.

    New website/ live Zeppelin?

    agree. It will be interesting to see just what the streaming service actually is....
