  1. Happening this Saturday at the hallowed Royal Albert Hall - includes fantastic Page image by the superb Jill Furmanovsky from '75: http://www.theprintbank.com/ For a great cause too...
  2. Has anyone else had an issue with the sleeves from the Deluxe triple CD version? The first two discs both have the same sleeve (the one that features the image Apollo astronaut top right) - I assume this is a mistake and one of the discs should feature the other sleeve (with the body builder top right)?
  3. Does anyone else feel generally underwhelmed by these releases? I was going with it with 'I' (with the whole Paris gig on there) and certain parts of 'II' and 'III' were very interesting, but the fourth album and 'Houses of the Holy' seemed generally a bit redundant. The Sunset Sound mixes seem pointless to me - overall just not as good versions of the tracks we all know and love. On HOTH without listening to the originals plus the bonus ones back to back I found it hard to figure out what the difference was, and don't really care either. This sort of thing comes alive when we really get to he
  4. It's interesting with the trailer that they seem to have cropped the image to 2.35:1 ratio - they would have shot HD @ 16:9 and have apparently made the decision to go with a wider image (so in essence losing some of the original image top and bottom of frame to achieve this). They also seem to have utilised audience footage as per the 2003 DVD - the 4:3 grainy shots included look handheld. Anyone out there supply the band with their footage?
  5. 3'43" into 'I'm Gonna Crawl' - beautiful solo but there's some weird thump that goes on at this point

  7. I agree that the two Earls Court shows are the most enjoyable of what is out there officially or not, showing the band at their absolute height (before the fall). It's amazing to me that a band so notoriously camera/TV shy should be so well represented with official and unofficial footage - from Denmark 1968/pretty much a whole gig from 1970/1973 (TSRTS)/2+ entire gigs from 1975/1 from 1977/2 from 1979 + all the other endless clips and excerpts. The Earls Court footage would (as has been said) shot on 2" videotape (the standard of PAL video in the 1970's - giving way to 1" and then digital
  8. Personally (and this is complete conjecture) I reckon Jimmy has a musical project on the go and is getting this ready to release - he has said as much in more than one interview ('new music in 2010' etc). I think the delay in the book is to tie in with this release and make a big splash - the fact he has also launched an official website (albeit just a holding page at the moment) ties in with this also. Let's see what the next few weeks bring...
  9. I know it's a small and fairly irrelavant point, but why on this official site has the hyphen in the LED ZEPPELIN logo disappeared? It's been on this version of their logo since the release of HOTH in 1973 (and TSRTS in 1976). I'd like to officially start the campaign for the return of the hyphen...

  12. Point taken, I'll backtrack on this, although clearly Robert is the one who doesn't want to progress with the band any further - and I think he's right, much as it pains me to say. Steve A. Jones is correct when he says this is all nostalgia - it ended in 1980.
  13. Reply to allbettsareoff - I was very privileged to have been at the O2 that evening and had waited 27 years for them to do this. The evening and the experience was jaw-droppingly brilliant from start to end - my point is that Jimmy's playing in particular didn't reach the stellar perfection of their heyday and this may be a factor in not releasing it. Listen to SIBLY or Stairway and tell me the solos are as good? The band's quality bar is set very, very high (which is why we love them) and anything substandard won't cut it. That's why we'll probably never see official releases of Seattle '
  14. I can't think they'll put out the gig on DVD or Blu-ray - reasons being: 1. the performance was good, but not great - and, as we know, they're not a band to put anything out that is in any way substandard (which is one of the very many reasons I love them) 2. Page's playing is not great - much as I revere him. He's fine on the big riffs but when he is exposed (the solos on both 'Since I've Been Loving You' and 'Stairway' as examples) it's painfully clear he doesn't have the skills of 30 years ago, a shame to say this but it's true 3. Plant singing - obviously some controversy here regardi
