    Led Zeppelin - 1977 Soundboard Compilation

    Thank you Zephead for the dedication you put in gathering all different sources! 1977 belongs to Zep live history. You can say whatever you want about it, there's still irresistible musical moments all through the tour. Great!
  2. Not so sure about that. Jimmy has recently said there will be all kind of LZ official releases over a period of ten years time. And I tend to think it's true. Why ? Because like all of us he's not eternal, and I guess he very probably prefers to be able to oversee and control these releases while he's still alive and has the power to do so. Sense of duty in view of Led Zeppelin's recorded body of work.

    Can you list your top 10 LZ songs, in no particular order?

    Whats up with Keith Richards on LZ?

    Yep. This fact is also reported in the pages of Barney Hoskyns book. This is Keith Richards who is responsible for having turned Jimmy into an heroin addict. Pure felony. Richards the bastard.

    Jimmy Page confirms 2018 release(s)

    Or perhaps it would be better if Jimmy Page said plainly his truth, namely he doesn't want another singer on his new or past material. That's the main reason why ten years ago they didn't carry on after the 02 show, after all. They were right. But by saying so Jimmy would transfer considerable pressure upon Robert's shoulders (it's already there). So it's obvious in my mind Jimmy doesn't want to alienate his relationship to Robert. Preferring keeping it to himself. At his own risk of looking like someone who is not reliable. Which is simply not the case. There's a sacrificial aspect to that in my eyes. And the proof of an enlightened wisdom.

    Jimmy Page confirms 2018 release(s)

    Tired of reading those kind of ever-present comments. Completely lacks of sensibility imho. Percy can always declare in the press he's not his brother's keeper, I think it's quite clear in Jimmy's mind and for everyone lucid enough nothing equals Robert's voice and presence alongside Jimmy's guitar. Jimmy wants the best for his music and the best IS Robert Plant. Period. So better nothing than anything else. The equation is quite simple. For lack of being blissful. We're not in the eighties or in the nineties anymore. The tribulations can't be the same.

    New Bath '70 Video?

    There's an online paper about the Bath 1970 unearthed film here: http://teamrock.com/feature/2017-07-19/getting-the-inside-story-behind-led-zeppelins-lost-film Unseen film of Led Zeppelin playing at the 1970 Bath Festival – thrown away nearly 50 years ago, and widely thought to be lost – has been unearthed in a British university film archive. Experts are now hoping to digitally restore the footage, and it’s hoped that it will be released to mark the 50th anniversary of what is widely considered to be one of the most important performances of the band’s career. The 1970 Bath Festival Of Blues And Progressive Music (which took place not in Bath, but close by in Shepton Mallet) was a two-day event featuring Zeppelin, who headlined the Saturday, Pink Floyd, The Byrds, Santana, Johnny Winter, Canned Heat and many more. Does anyone has access to the remaining article, please?

    Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience (Tour)

    There's a new Black Country Communion album to be recorded and released in the near future. So Jason will be involved in composing new music soon. He has expressed the need to go back to writing's work.

    Jimmy Page Responds to Keith Richards

    Not so sure about the healthy aspect : according to what's reported in Barney Hoskyns's book, Trampled Underfooot, this is Keith Richards who introduced Jimmy Page to the use of heroin. I can't stand KR, personally. For some reason, I think he played a pivotal role in the demise of Led Zeppelin.

    Jimmy Page Responds to Keith Richards

    I'm with you. Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd were ahead of their time, there is a visionary dimension in their work. Not the case with the Rolling Stones which were a byproduct of their era.

    Companion discs are rubbish

    And now Ladies and Gentlemen, the question that kills : if Plant hadn't vetoed the post O2 project (new album and tour), do you still think Page would have considered relevant to immerse himself in this extended campaign ? I don't think so. They'd have known better things to do. For me, Page has lost his beautiful focus on action along the way with this project coming to reality. But I don't blame him at all. Because what he had in mind for his band in 2008 and so on was a total different beast that what we have now. So by deciding to remaster all the studio catalogue one more time, Page has made a choice by default. That's a problem when you try to think in terms of idealistic art direction.

    Which shows do we know were multitracked?

    What about the five Montreux shows from 1970, 1971 and 1972 ?
