  1. Me too, from 1974 I had the old Blimp/TMOQ version on a truncated reel to reel copy (Dazed was incomplete, encores missing etc...). It was my first live Zep encounter, but I was never overwhelmed by the sound of drums, guitar and Jonesy's Farfisa. When Cobla released the new stereo source, it was like someone's removed a blanket (I still don't dig the Farfisa though;-)
  2. Jimmy's Birthday is a cheap re issue from Empress Valley and offers all you need. Other affordable alternatives on Godfather and Moonchild are out of print. Montreux is the way to go for a truly excellent quality spring 70 show. Empress Valley's expensive The Great Beast' has the stunning AUD recording and the the final reel from the mixing desk (probably from Claude Nobs' vast archive). Eat a Peach released a nice mid price 4CD as well, but is also hard to find. Offenburg (No Label) and the recent stereo Matrix from Vienna (empress and No Label) are the best sounding European 1973 shows. Hamburg 73 is also exceptional but only 47 minutes are available from a fragmentary SB recording. The Hamburg AUD recording is OK. IF you are completely Euro 73 converted, then there is no reason to skip Munich, Essen, Berlin as well.
  3. Berkeley 9/14 ; I haven't heard the first night, but in the early 70's 'Going To California' was a perfect live album; Heartbreaker is one of the best renditions. Boston, really cooking and aggressive performance: Killing Floor and Communication Breakdown, stand out. Ft.Worth; another incomplete tape, but this another great performance, especially for Percy. Orlando; probably the best of the N.American soundboards. Only 110 minutes were captured from the mixing desk and there are some annoying gaps, but this is a perfect introduction. Copenhagen, May...Fantastic performance incl. rare live versions of Four Sticks and Gallows Pole. Ipswitch. One of the landmark British shows during the fall. OK That's only six shows, but I'm sure some Zep heads with better bootleg ears, will throw in some more for good measure.
  4. https://twitter.com/yuminori0616/status/1301123758816591879 fresh from twitter, after an appetizer previous year feat. the opening and encore section, EV releases the complete show
  5. May I add these two? ...my personal favorites. One from Bonzo's Birthday Party May 73 and another one -most likely- from one of the 75 warm ups (Brussels or Rotterdam) as that one showed up in Dutch magazine Copyright; Jeffrey Mayer ...one of the greatest!
  6. Don't think so. Moonchild never ever releases 'previously unreleased' material...only rehashes of their (Mother label?) Empress, sometimes Godfather and a lot of stuff from the internet (incl. Winston remasters). Most likely this is Winston's second effort on 929 incl. the available tracks from the SB. The strange thing is the price setting; regardless of them releasing 1, 2 or 3 CD sets, the fixed price setting is 1100 jPY. This however is priced at 33 USD. Packaging is a Plain Jane slimline jewel case, feat.common Japan 71 pics.
  7. https://twitter.com/yuminori0616/status/1298604042378084352/photo/1 I noticed this on twitter and on AirRaid and I'm starting to loose track on all these Osaka 929 mixes. Some additional information would be appreciated. Thanks
  8. I'm pretty sure the latest incarnation of BB Hill on Moonchild has the Nite Owl matrix.
  9. Although they played in FT Worth that day, I think you mixed up with the 'Hot August Night' performance from a year later (August 23, 1971). A great recording!
  10. Thanks for really liberating the Bloomington SB, ZepHead315
  11. Thanks Sam, still this must be a double case of Murphy's Law; 75 soundboard cassettes were flipped after Kashmir, but since Levee was replaced by (the lengthier)In My Time of Dying there should have been a couple of minutes left after Kashmir was finished. Just checked the average length on some of the familiar SB cd's and disc 1 usually varies between 51 and 56 minutes. Maybe Percy was in a very very 'plantative' mood at the Bloomington Met Center🙄
  12. https://........ Song remains the Same Rain Song Kashmir Wanton Song Wanton Song outtakes
  13. after a small teaser from this January U.S show, it seems somebody paid the right price http://www002.upp.so-net.ne.jp/airraid/sale/DSC02682.JPG can't wait to get my hands on this 😜
  14. Yes, imperfect as it is may be, the Heylin book at least features some other interesting stories. The advent of boot silvers to be specific(TSP, Great Dane, Scorpio, Silver Rarities,...). TMOQ is important, but their glory days were- like- from 69 to 73? 🥱
