  1. The song is credited as a medley on HTWWW: half Zep original (written by Page/Plant/Jones/Bonham), half Willie Dixon cover. I wonder if that royalty arrangement is still in place?
  2. Why would you not include Coda, or any of the other studio recordings released after 1979? By my count there were 93 studio songs, not including alternate mixes.
  3. On the original, the vocals start at 0:38. On the remastered version, the vocals start at 0:50. Other than that, they are the same.
  4. That's Geoff Stephens. Prolific songwriter.
  5. It's a demo from Page's days at Immediate Records, 1965. Jimmy played guitar and produced it but he didn't sing on it. The same song was later recorded by a guy named Russ Loader.
  6. Bootleg companies intentionally misspelled things so that the major record labels would think they were homemade records and not professional fakes.
  7. It's a remake of a song that Rod recorded with a group called Python Lee Jackson in 1972:
  8. So....it's a guitar that Jimmy may have played one time in 1991?
  9. The tracklist is showing several songs that were not part of the original radio broadcast. Hmmm.
  10. "Cry Me A River" is relevant because it's a good illustration of what can't be copyrighted. Chord arpeggios -- the act of playing each note in a chord -- cannot be copyrighted. Davy Graham knew this, which is why he did not attempt to copyright his original interpretation of "Cry Me A River". I think Randy California knew this as well, which is why he never sued or even threatened to sue. Randy California did not invent the A-minor chord. 😄 The first jury understood this basic legal concept, and the second jury (if the case even goes to trial) will likely conclude the same thing.
  11. No such song exists. Closest thing I can think of is the early demo of "No Quarter" which has a bit of a waltz feel to it. The only pre-Zep recordings with Plant are by P.J. Proby, but Plant didn't do any vocals. He only played tambourine and harmonica.
  12. No, that's not how the trial will work. The jury will ONLY be permitted to hear Spirit's studio recording of "Taurus" as part of the process of determining if P&P had access to the song. The jury will NOT be permitted to hear "Taurus" to determine if the two songs are similar. The appeals court ruling was very clear on that subject. The 2nd trial -- if it happens -- will still be all about the sheet music. IF the jury decides that the sheet music is substantially similar to "Stairway", THEN the audio recording of "Taurus" will come into play. No, I'm not suggesting that P&P can commit perjury. What I'm suggesting is that the publicity from the previous trial could have brought forth some previously-unknown witnesses who could corroborate Plant's testimony (that he did not attend a Spirit concert in 1970) or Page's testimony (that he did not purchase the "Spirit" album which was discovered in his home). There will be no need for Page or Plant to commit perjury.
