  1. http://www.ukrockfestivals.com/bannisters-bath.html It's already a couple of years old, so I don't know if there are still copies circulating. However when I inquired on the availability of Zeppelin audio on this set...BIG silence.🙄
  2. Yes there are new photo's on top of the familiar ones (e.g. the Hiroshima visit, the Japanese dinner, some concert pics). The additional 1971 concert photos are by no means masterpieces in the same league as Chuck Boyd, Neil Preston, Bob Gruen or Jorgen Angel. As I mentioned earlier the editors preferred a warts'n all approach -especially for September 71. Sharpness (or the lack of), excess grain, underexposure,... were no objections. Judging the overall lightning during the 71 performances , me thinks the stages were not lit as well as U.S or European shows. Especially since Japanese camera manufacturers such as Nikon were already in pole postion for producing high speed telephoto lenses such as the 180 and 300mm ones, the results are a bit frustrating. The 1972 pics are a pleasant surprise. Bottom line: It's a soft cover publication and has more the feel of a deluxe magazine than a coffee table book. I love Japan and am a huge Zeppelin Live in Japan aficionado ...so acquiring this book was a must.
  3. I bought the 'Loose Ends' LP yonks ago (1991?) during a Record Fair (I just had to have a live version of 'The Ocean'). Since I didn't have a turntable, I dubbed the album onto cassette at my brother in Law's house and eventually sold the LP to a fellow Zep-head. It also had a Firm track. Apart from that it was a nice way to have some of the live rarities. On Discogs they're stating this one is from 2010...it isn't, since I snapped it up around 1991 "Thank you it's complete" was originally a double CD on Discurios, one of those early nineties' German' loophole labels. Now that one was bloody awful. The source tape suffered from a distracting background noise (bleed through?) and hiss reduction. If the vinyl is a straight copy of the CD, I would avoid that one.
  4. 🤣 first 500 buyers will receive a free 'Noise Solo' 3CD compilation from the 77 tour
  5. I know Robert...I was referring to evolution=timing vol.4 (the one with the Bonham cover...to be confirmed 😉
  6. fingers crossed that will feature the best AUD snippets 😇
  7. That's Jimmy (or Jonesy?) noodling "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer"...certainly NOT Robert A christmas chestnut I'm Rudolph the Red-Nosed ReindeerI got a very shiny noseAnd if you ever saw itWould you would even say it glows - like a roseAll of the other reindeersUsed to laugh and call me names
  8. And...does it come with mini replica Alembic 8 string, Fender Jazz bass axes, and a wig ? 🤣
  9. Studio: Lemon Song Live: Heartbreaker (Berkeley 14 Sept.1971)
  10. You're welcome Walter. I forgot to mention that Andy Adams -in his 1990 'Lost & Found' article- 'predicted' the existence of the Long Beach 72 Moby Dick (along WIWSNB and Dancing Days) and the 100 minutes SB from Hampton 71, two years before their first actual outing on 'One More Daze''.
  11. I don't think so... Both magazine editors Hugh (Proximity) and Andy ( Early Days& Latter days) are going in to detail with this specific Box of 'found' Tapes from 1990. The house sitter is usually associated with the glut of 73, 80 SBs and some rehearsal tapes. The story depicted by Andy and Hugh is quite solid since their descriptions are so accurate (the handwriting on the 2" multi track reel boxes!!!! We mortals had to wait until the books incl. in the Super Deluxe boxes to verify it's existence). Both Andy's and Hugh's early 90's accounts have so much details, it never ceases to amaze me how thoroughly researched their stuff is. So, to answer your question ...the two Hampton 71 1/4" reels were part of a 7 (or 8?) tape collection consisting of 2" multi track and 1/4" reel to reel recordings. I've included the ED&LD and Proximity articles, courtesy of A.Adams and H.Jones.
  12. you lucky man, MD Ale! my evolution=timing vol.2 never arrived 😞

    Quarantine poll

    12...obvious 4... no brainer but then. 1, 8, 9 Can not make up my mind. Today I would say Pink Floyd, but tomorrow? (and Little Feat, The Temptations, Paul Simon, Stones, Zappa, Jimi Hendrix, ...tough 🤔)
  14. Sure, the regular edition will be released on september 8th and I believe the price will be around £40 on Amazon.uk https://www.amazon.co.uk/Jimmy-Page-Anthology/dp/1905662610/ref=sr_1_1?crid=YEL3SQLD7LFK&dchild=1&keywords=jimmy+page+anthology&qid=1586672463&s=books&sprefix=jimmy+page+%2Caps%2C147&sr=1-1 By the way, anyone on the forum , lucky enough to receive her/ his ltd.ed. yet?
