  1. I'm of the belief that "Mothership" is good but not perfect. I'm sure it works well for casual Zeppelin fans, but mine would look a little different. Here is what I have compiled over the course of eight album sides. Feel free to join in on the fun! LED ZEPPELIN - MOTHERSHIP SIDE ONE Good Times, Bad Times We're Gonna Groove Babe I'm Gonna Leave You Your Time Is Gonna Come I Can't Quit You Baby (Royal Albert Hall) SIDE TWO Whole Lotta Love Thank You What Is And What Should Never Be Ramble On SIDE THREE Immigrant Song Hey Hey What Can I Do Since I've Been Loving You That's The Way SIDE FOUR Celebration Day Rock And Roll Going To California Stairway To Heaven SIDE FIVE Black Dog The Song Remains The Same The Rain Song SIDE SIX Over The Hills And Far Away The Rover Ten Years Gone SIDE SEVEN Kashmir Achilles Last Stand SIDE EIGHT Hot Dog Fool In The Rain I'm Gonna Crawl All My Love
  2. It dawns on me I could have made this a triple! I had to leave out the likes of "Two Ones Are Won", "Bring It On Home (Rough Mix)", "La La", etc.
  3. Assume that Page emptied the vaults not in 1990 and 2014 but sometime after the original Coda was released. Taking outtakes of studio songs into account, there surely would have been enough quality material for a double (or more). What would your "Coda II" double album have looked like? This is what I came up with... CODA II The Song Remains The Same (Guitar Reference Mix) Ramble On (Rough Mix) Thank You (Backing Track) Southbound Piano (Rough Mix) Travelling Riverside Blues (BBC) Hot Dog (Rough Mix) Sick Again (Early Version) Since I've Been Loving You (Rough Mix Of First Recording) Hey Hey What Can I Do (B side) The Rain Song (Mix Minus Piano) That's The Way Going To California (Guitar/Mandolin Mix) 10 Ribs & All / Carrot Pod Pod (Rough Mix) Everybody Makes It Through (In The Light) (Rough Mix) Blot (I'm Gonna Crawl) (2015 Mono Mix)
  4. Here’s your chance to compile a companion disc for each album tailored to your preferred tastes. The only rules are 1) You must use officially released tracks/companion tracks from the remasters (no bootleg versions), 2) Coda will not be used since we will use the album’s tracks/companion tracks for the actual studio albums, 3) You are not obligated to keep the companion tracks with the album’s session (the idea is to put the companion tracks on the album where they sound most “at home”). You can also “fill out” the companion discs with actual remastered versions of the album’s songs, if you wish, just as long as a bulk of it is comprised of companion tracks. 4) You should keep the flow of the album’s original sides, more or less (as Page did for the real companion discs) but you can insert the non-album tracks anywhere you wish. Have fun sequencing! This is what I came up for mine. I have actually made discs for these. Consider them companions to the companion discs…LOL LED ZEPPELIN SIDE ONE Good Times, Bad Times (2014 Remaster) Babe I’m Gonna Leave You (2014 Remaster) Sugar Mama (Unreleased Mix) Your Time Is Gonna Come (2014 Remaster) Black Mountain Side (2014 Remaster) SIDE TWO We’re Gonna Groove (Alternate Mix) I Can’t Quit You Baby (2015 Coda Remaster - Royal Albert Hall) Travelling Riverside Blues (2015 Coda Remaster - BBC) How Many More Times (2014 Remaster) LED ZEPPELIN II SIDE ONE Whole Lotta Love (Rough Mix With Vocal) What Is And What Should Never Be (Rough Mix With Vocal) Thank You (Backing Track) Heartbreaker (Rough Mix With Vocal) SIDE TWO Ramble On (Rough Mix With Vocal) Moby Dick (2014 Remaster) Bring It On Home (Rough Mix) La La (Intro/Outro Rough Mix) LED ZEPPELIN III SIDE ONE Immigrant Song (Alternate Mix) Hey Hey What Can I Do (2015 Coda Remaster) Celebration Day (Alternate Mix) Since I’ve Been Loving You (Rough Mix Of First Recording) Bron-yr-aur (2015 Physical Graffiti Remaster) SIDE TWO Tangerine (2014 Remaster) That’s The Way (Rough Mix With Dulcimer & Backwards Echo) Key To The Highway / Trouble In Mind (Rough Mix) Bron-y-aur Stomp (2014 Remaster) Hats Off To (Roy) Harper (2014 Remaster) LED ZEPPELIN IV SIDE ONE Black Dog (2014 Remaster) Rock And Roll (Alternate Mix) The Battle Of Evermore (Mandolin/Guitar Mix From Headley Grange) Stairway To Heaven (Sunset Sound Mix) SIDE TWO If It Keeps On Raining (Rough Mix) Four Sticks (Alternate Mix) Going To California (Mandolin/Guitar Mix) When The Levee Breaks (Alternate UK Mix) HOUSES OF THE HOLY SIDE ONE The Song Remains The Same (Guitar Reference Mix) The Rain Song (Mix Minus Piano) Over The Hills And Far Away (2014 Remaster) D’yer Mak’er (2014 Remaster) SIDE TWO St. Tristan’s Sword (Rough Mix) No Quarter (Rough Mix With JPJ Keyboards Overdubs) The Ocean (Working Mix) PHYSICAL GRAFFITI SIDE ONE Custard Pie (2015 Remaster) The Rover (2015 Remaster) Driving Through Kashmir (Rough Orchestra Mix) SIDE TWO Everybody Makes It Through (Rough Mix) Ten Years Gone (2015 Remaster) Desire (Rough Mix) Sick Again (Early Version) PRESENCE SIDE ONE Two Ones Are Won (Rough Mix) Royal Orleans (2015 Remaster) Nobody’s Fault But Mine (2015 Remaster) Candy Store Rock (2015 Remaster) Poor Tom (2015 Coda Remaster) Bonzo’s Montreaux (Mix In Progress) Hots On For Nowhere (Rough Mix) IN THROUGH THE OUT DOOR SIDE ONE Southbound Piano (Rough Mix) Fool In The Rain (2015 Remaster) Hot Dog (Rough Mix) 10 Ribs & All / Carrot Pod Pod (Rough Mix) SIDE TWO The Epic - Carouselambra (Rough Mix) All My Love (2015 Remaster) I’m Gonna Crawl (2015 Remaster) Notes: “Poor Tom”, to be honest, doesn’t really fit the mood of Presence yet I do think it fits well where I sequenced it, so I left it in. “10 Ribs & All / Carrot Pod Pod” is one of my favorites from the new remasters but it strikes me as more at home on In Through The Out Door than on Presence. Thus I added it to the former album’s companion tracks. Some of the new companion tracks are worthy and interesting but I just couldn’t squeeze them in anywhere in a satisfactory way. This includes the likes of Houses of the Holy (Rough Mix), Gallows Pole (Rough Mix) and the excellent rough mix of In The Evening. I guess I’ll just have to pull out the real companion discs when I want to hear those.
  5. Thanks! No, I wasn't offended at all. I'll try and gather up the original notes I made when I was making the edits and post them sometime.
  6. Good point on Going To California. I, too, love the new companion disc where you can really hear the beauty of the song's melody. I suppose Bonzo does get credit for Kashmir but, myself, I still think of it as a "Plant song" first. The lyrics are just so memorable and really describe the setting. Then there's Jones as well, who might contribute most to the actual atmosphere of the song. I guess it's one of those songs where each member can truly lay claim to playing an integral role.
  7. The band's very name represents both - Led (Hard) Zeppelin (Soft). Many of Zeppelin's songs exhibit both within the same tune! Still, sequence a double album where the first record is made up of your favorite hard songs and the second record your favorite softer tracks. Mine would look like... SIDE ONE Black Dog The Song Remains The Same Achilles Last Stand SIDE TWO The Rover Celebration Day Rock And Roll When The Levee Breaks SIDE THREE Thank You The Rain Song White Summer / Black Mountain Side SIDE FOUR Hey Hey What Can I Do Ten Years Gone Going To California I'm Gonna Crawl
  8. I wasn't really looking to do away with Jimmy's official versions of these classic live albums. Just curious if anyone else has fun making their own. I could give the precise details of where the cuts and changes occur on my "Orange Sunset Mixes" but, then again, I just did the edits for my own personal enjoyment. I don't know if anyone else would enjoy it.
  9. I'll never understand how this album can be thought of as anything short of great if one understands what made Zeppelin so special. I've always felt it was their crowning achievement stylistically. There is so much wonderful variety on the album. It is often said that Page is absent on this record, for reasons I don't understand, for some of his finest moments are on this record. The explosive solo that launches the mid section of "In The Evening". The gorgeous tone of his melodic solo on "South Bound Suarez". "Hot Dog" is amazing due to his guitar licks and "I'm Gonna Crawl" features his finest and most elegant solo that he ever put on record. Robert's finest moments as a lyricist are on this album (Fool In The Rain, All My Love, I'm Gonna Crawl). The melancholy on this album is so sweet that it drips for longing. I always felt that the songs flow with an emotional concept, shifting from one mood to another. You have the sheer joy of South Bound Suarez, the bittersweet love of Fool In The Rain, a moment of humor with Hot Dog (which is always essential), you have the seeds of adventure and journey with Carouselambra, sorrow and the hope of future in All My Love and the after hours blues of I'm Gonna Crawl that brings everything back home again. So there is more to In Through The Out Door than what meets the eye. Add to all of this the aesthetic joy of the packaging and various album covers and you have Zeppelin saving their best for last. This album sounds better and better with time. The detractors are free to dislike it but the album itself endures. As does all the work of this amazing band.
  10. I'm actually one of the few, apparently, that doesn't find Graffiti to be a perfect album. Sure, it's a four star effort and I love it, but I always felt some of the songs sounded a bit out of place sequencing-wise. I would have showcased Kashmir more by using it as a side OPENER rather than a closer. Page did this to open disc three on the 1990 box set and I always felt it worked much better. The opening lyric benefits from being the first thing you hear lyrically and the atmosphere of the song really sweeps away the listener and announces to them that this album/side is going to take you on a wondrous journey. Somehow, tucking it way back as a side closer makes it sound a bit anti-climatic to my ears. Page is indeed a master at sequencing, for the most part. But I always thought a few of the tracks on Graffiti could have been re-shuffled. I'd say Led Zeppelin IV is the finest sequencing-wise. There isn't a single track I would shift on that one. I also feel the opening to Houses Of The Holy is sheer brilliance with The Song Remains The Same fading into The Rain Song. Led Zeppelin III is also near perfect.
  11. Oh yes, you're right. My mistake. I need to do a better job of checking the liner notes!
  12. Now having unreleased songs at our disposal via the 2007 The Song Remains The Same remaster, and using tracks from "How The West Was Won", make a double lp that highlights your favorites from Zeppelin's officially released 1973 live shows. I purposely decided to narrow it down to just a double because it forces you to truly pick the elite of the elite. For my double, I wanted to see if I could come up with a live album that, for a change of pace, doesn't include Stairway To Heaven or Dazed And Confused. Here is what I came up with... THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME - The Orange Sunset Mix SIDE ONE Rock And Roll (Orange Sunset Mix)* Black Dog (Orange Sunset Mix)* Since I've Been Loving You (2007 The Song Remains The Same Remaster) The Ocean (How The West Was Won) SIDE TWO Going To California (How The West Was Won) The Song Remains The Same (Orange Sunset Mix)* The Rain Song (Orange Sunset Mix)* SIDE THREE Over The Hills And Far Away (Orange Sunset Mix)* Moby Dick (Orange Sunset Mix)* SIDE FOUR Heartbreaker (2007 The Song Remains The Same Remaster) Whole Lotta Love (Orange Sunset Mix)* * The Orange Sunset Mixes are custom-edited versions I made that piece together the best passages from either the original 1976 The Song Remains The Same, the 2007 Remaster or How The West Was Won. The term orange sunset is a nod to the orange cover for Houses of the Holy, which was the album the band was touring on during these 1973 performances.
  13. Since Physical Graffiti already used unused songs from prior sessions, I thought it might be fun to re-do the double album making available ALL unreleased songs that have been officially released. In other words, create a double album that includes your favorite tracks from the actual album and/or tracks from Coda and the 1990 box set. Unreleased tracks from the recent companion discs are also eligible for use. For example, mine would look like... PHYSICAL GRAFFITI - RE-MODELED SIDE ONE Kashmir The Rover White Summer / Black Mountain Side SIDE TWO Travelling Riverside Blues Trampled Underfoot In The Light SIDE THREE Custard Pie Down By The Seaside Hey Hey What Can I Do Ten Years Gone SIDE FOUR Houses Of The Holy Poor Tom Bron-yr-aur The Wanton Song Key To The Highway / Trouble In Mind
  14. I love The Lemon Song but between the likes of The Rain Song and In The Light, there just wasn't enough room.
  15. Good mention of Kashmir for Robert! I went back and forth on whether to include that one or Stairway. You're right that the opening lyrics are especially memorable. "Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dreams..." might be my favorite individual lyric in a Zeppelin song.
