  1. I purposely came here to read a comment by Steve about this release...and your funny/whitty comment didn’t disappoint. Thx!!
  2. Would have loved to be about ten rows back with the volume up on 11, had they played this live. All the outtakes from ITTOD should have been on that album. It would have been an even more amazing album and would have shown 10 years later they still “had it!”
  3. The one story I dont believe about Mike was that he destroyed all his masters. I think that was just made up to keep folks from asking about getting copies from his family.
  4. The AKG 451s needed a 48v power supply. So yes he did need power supplies for his mics. I have wondered if he had different capsules that he used. The 451s could be bought in sets with the Cardioid, Hyper-cardioid and Omni patterns. These are the things I’d like to know the most of all. How are his mics configured. The body of the 451s also have a high pass filer. So I wonder if he experimented with this setting as well. Yes the deck was important but the entire mic set up was the most important factor.
  5. They should have mixed up the set lists from night to night. If not completely different from night to night maybe include some set list anchors to keep things a little consistent but swap out lots of songs especially when doing 2, 3, 4 and 5 night runs.
  6. Wish we knew exactly the mics and how he configured the mics and capsules. That the most important part. The NAK was important because us was above cheaper gear but the mic capsules are the reason for the type of sound. His LA ‘75 tapes sound quite different than his ‘77 tapes. His Long Beach 3/11/75 sounds more like the LA ‘77 recordings. I wish we knew. I wish there was more to his story too; like someone from his family coming forward.
  7. Maybe a new version could be purchased by “The Only Way To Fly” in this thread a new transfer could be made?
  8. That’s is the only difference. It’s not a huge deal with today being full of official companion discs and tons of bootleg out takes but 25 years ago to find an anomaly on ANY Zep record it was a thrill to hear it
  9. Atlantic sent out advance promotional copies of a 7” inch Advanced EP of Gallows Pole to radio stations and such prior to the release of the full album. A neat oddity is that a really cool guy who use to hang out at RO.com discovered long ago that an entirely different version of the song was on the EP. It had a longer version that was on the album and wasn’t known about until he discovered it. On the album version during the last couple minutes they chopped out about a 15 second portion which you can hear on the Advance Promo 33 & 1/3” EP.
  10. Ouch...pretty dickish comments...Jeff seems like a great guy.
  11. Funny to see the MSG 1971 photo doesn’t have the word FRAGILE stenciled onto the case but you see it added in the Melbourne 1972 photo. The case was used and worn and should have been retired ages ago but instead they just paint FRAGILE on it like that would help protect the guitar. 😜
  12. The thread about the man Jeff returning Jimmy’s guitar case made me read the reviews of the Nassau 1972 shows. Made me realize the 6/15/72 Nassau show must have had a long set of encores too similar to Seattle and Denver. The review says JPJ sat alone and played a medley of songs which included Amazing Grace. That clearly shows another monster medley similar to Seattle. It also says they did a rock medley containing Peggy Sue. So add the last hour of 6/15/72 to this list! 😜
  13. Here is Plant with his Nikon F in Japan 1971 and also at the 1974 Crosby, Stills and Nash & Young concert at Wembley Stadium.
  14. Sadly many tours are missing the openers. Or first few dates. The tour starts and as it progresses the hype builds and more individuals want to keep a record of it and we end up what we have now. More will turn up slowly. PS. I highly doubt Denver 1968 exists.
  15. Great choices. Denver has to be top 3. A May 1971 show with breakouts from the Zoso album. The other set from Central Park July 1969 would be sweet. Lots of other could be mentioned too!
  16. Wait, I dont really recall the “Band” officially saying anything about an official streaming service. There was a patent taken out or something like that and the rest was rampant speculation. Steve A Jones May know more...
  17. I agree. I grew up with my dad using those exact same Nikons every day so I have almost noticed the camera and 8mm cameras in the pictures. So cool to see. Plant may have use the same Nikon for the Wings concert he attended in 1974 in London. No doubt if black and white video exists it wouldn’t be the best quality. Much like the Fillmore East video of the Dead or Hendrix done by Bill Graham’s peolple.
  18. Grant at the Sydney 1972 concert with the same 8mm. At one point maybe during Whole Lotta Love someone is on the scaffolding behind the stage with what looks like an entirely different film camera.
  19. Here are the two 8mm film cameras seen in the Japan sight seeing photos. The one both Jimmy and Peter Grant are using looks to be the same camera and looks like a high quality camera. Grant can also be seen on stage at the Sydney 1972 concert with the same camera. The other camera was probably John Bonham’s and where the Sydney footage originates. Surely someone in the band’s outfit shot some concert footage of at least part of one of the Japan concerts with these 2, 8mm cameras. Lets hope the video machine was used too!!
