    Cleveland 4/28/77 alternate source

    I guess my point is we all only love so long. Let the tapes out...jimmy please take note...you’re living history....getting to see your history play out while you’re still alive is infinite...not the other way around...

    Not a complaint brother, just saying it’s silly how someone would hoard something that is worse quality and pretty insignificant.

    I’ve been collecting since about 1983-85, yes it was the Red Box set “The Destroyer” with special thanks to “Cookie Crumb” and was out before any tape source was in trading circles that had Stairway with the “oh fuck” comment. Ive also taped shows since 1987 (Pink Floyd at MSG). The original source was taped up close in the sound field and has so much power. This new source no matter how the transfer was done sounds like it was taped much farther away. Funny anyone would ever hoard this recording. I’m not being snobby or anything. But facts dont lie - the original source is fantastic and the new source is average.

    I was at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs training and I would walk to various record stores near the facility in about 1985. I bought a Houses of the Holy jukebox ep at one store and they also had the original red box Destroyer set. I asked to hear a sample and the guy put on The Song Remains The Same and the quality floored me. I bought the set for $50. Super great power and ambience. I heard this new source and although it’s neat and less chopped up it is miles behind the original source. All this talk about it for years now and one listen and it’s meh.
  5. It’s going to be the 60th or 75th Anniversary before we get any new music.... 😳

    10/25/68 FIRST CONCERT AS LED ZEPPELIN

    50 years ago the Blimp went flying high and created some timeless wonderful music...
  7. That’s a nice way of saying...it’s most likely all BS.
  8. Where is Black Swan with his 1968 Live Zeppelin release?

    Seattle 1972 and Animal House

    It’s pretty amazing how many songs that Zeppelin performed at the best ever 6/19-72 Seattle show which are in the movie Animal House Louie Louie Lets Dance Money It’s almost like the person who chose the songs for Animal House saw that Seattle show.

    So awesome to her Plant flying high and singing Rock and Roll as it should be sung. All those mid to late 1970s versions pale compared to here...

    It’s interesting that a few years ago that article was written in a magazine with people who recorded the Zeppelin Japan shows for the band....now a few years later soundboards of the shows are turning up. Like the guys had these tapes all these years and now are letting copies loose.

    Just had to watch the Tokyo 1971 8mm film. Omg how exciting these Japan 1971 shows are!!

    Did they play it on 9/24? I need to revisit that show. I always like Tokyo 9/22 and Osaka 9/28 the best.

    The guy who ran the Lazers during the 1977 tour was given the Noise solo snippet by the band for cues. He gave that to Hotel to upload. So the band certainly must have all the LA 1977 soundboards.

    Is 9/23 the first break out of Bron-Y-Aur Stomp? I’m still holding out hope for an Official Japan 1971....preferably a huge box set with every night. Lmfao!

    All of this made me go back and listen to my favorite Japan 1971 show....Tokyo 9/23. They were on fire this mini tour!!

    Thank you, this is why people probably think only certain dates exist from the 1977 board rather than a source with a few shows or the opposite, a source with every show.

    It’s hard to believe that the guy(s) who sat there every night for various tour recording bands like Zeppelin and others has not come forward and talked about the good old days. The experiences must have been amazing.

    I’ve said it before, maybe Steve A Jones can help. If I’m remembering right there is a quote in the Peter Grant book where he mentions a block of 1975 board tapes that were never given to the band by ShowCo from the 1975 tour. I believe the quote said something like “...heads should have rolled...”

    Someone should add the acoustic set from the multitrack recording to the soundboard set. The acoustic set sounds pretty darn good on the multitrack and would fill out the soundboard source for a more complete feel of the show.

    Let’s stop guys. None of it is necessary. Back to the music....

    In the 1990s $1000 (plus several free copies) for an uncirculated Led Zeppelin tape was about as good as it gets. Fact. I imagine for a soundboard it would be more like $5000-$10000. But not any higher

    6/3/73 - Winston or JEMS?

    There it is. Damn, and the boot LP isn’t like that from what I remember. It’s such a nice recording too. I remember TSRTS, Rain Song and No Quater had issues but the intentional cut there sucks. Most of the show didn’t have a problem and it’s too bad for the flaw
