  1. Thanks for the input and correction. The date came from Wikipedia and several other sources (but possibly all copied from Wikipedia): https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Led_Zeppelin_North_American_Tour_Summer_1970 Based on your argument I agree there probably was no 9/7 show.
  2. Curious if anyone has any info on this show - it's 9/7/1970, not 4/7/1970. Browsing the tour dates, Zeppelin played Honolulu on 9/6 and then Raleigh, NC the very next night??? That's like a 10 hour flight plus you lose 5 hours. If they finished their show in Hawaii at 1 am, they wouldn't have gotten to NC until 4 pm the next day at the earliest. Absolutely insane, they should have killed Peter Grant (or whoever) for scheduling it this way. I've tried to do some internet sleuthing and cannot find a single mention of the Raleigh show. Not a recording, not an article, not a review, nothing.
  3. Just wondering if there are any Robert Cray fans here. Heard an amazing song off of his Strong Persuader album called "I Wonder" and I was wondering if there exist any live versions of it. None of the shows I'm seeing from that era have that song on the setlist. Did he specifically never play that song live? Thanks to anyone with info on this.
  4. That's great stuff, thank you. I'll have to look out for that one.
  5. So I just stumbled across an article which talked about how Derek and the Dominos were working on a new album just before they split up. Is it known how far they were on this? I know at least "Got to Get Better in a Little While" was already cut and appeared on some later Eric Clapton cd. Have any more of these songs been released, either on bootleg studio tracks, or officially?
  6. I couldn't figure out how to listen to the single, but I did hear some of his album...that stuff is great, thanks!
  7. Haha, well not metal as in today's standards, but I don't know how else to describe that typical 80's sound with the loud bass drum and heavy guitar riffs.
  8. What happened to the J. Geils band during the 80s?? My entire life I've completely written them off after hearing "Centerfold" and "Love Stinks"; I thought they were just another crappy 80's metal band. But after hearing some of their early 70's stuff, "Whammer Jammer," "Hard Driving Man," etc., and even a lot of blues stuff, it seems like they were a great band back in the day. What happened to them? Why did they decide to completely change their sound to sound like every other 80's band? Did their lineup change or anything? Or was it just the changing times?
  9. I've been out of the Zeppelin loop for a bit now, and I just popped in to listen/watch some of the videos on the site. I ended up stumbling across this 8mm footage of the boys live on their first American tour at the Filmore?? When did this footage come out? This is golden, groundbreaking! Why would anyone be taping some random band who happened to be opening for Iron Butterfly?
  10. Haha wow, thanks for the eye-opener. Sounds like there's a whole world out there I was not aware of. Comes out to about $250 a show...guess I'll stick with the electronic way. Also, in response to the earlier comment, I don't really see anything wrong with buying bootleg vinyl records at this point. I could see back in the '70s, if the bootleg companies were trying to rip everyone off and get wealthy illegally off of Zeppelin's fame. But now that the bootleg companies are no longer making records, it's only the record store owners who are making a profit, and you would have to think tha
  11. I would think it would decrease the value, since it's so easy to hear the actual music. But I guess you, Evster, and reswati are correct. The only people who would actually buy the vinyl bootlegs nowadays are collectors, and so this allows the bootleg companies to see the discs as "collectors items," and thus charge ridiculous amounts. Actually, after reading your guys' replies, the investor in me wonders if their value will skyrocket in the coming years, now that less and less actual bootlegs vinyls actually remain in circulation. But I don't think I'd feel too good about making money o
  12. After a long search, I finally found a record shop that is shady enough to sell underground material; namely bootleg concerts and studio outtakes. I was so excited to finally get my hands on one of these bootleg vinyls, but then I saw the price. These records are going for upwards of $45! And I'm no expert on bootleg companies, or anything related to the business, but these were extremely partial recordings; I think the most complete show was about half of the "Bonzo's Birthday" (May 31, 1973) release. Are these releases really worth between $45-$200 to people? And are they this expensive
  13. Yeah thanks, I definitely need to get my hands on a few of those later albums. I always thought the pinnacle of Muddy's career was between the late 40s-mid 50s, but I'm now discovering that his later albums with Johnny Winter are actually just as good, or better.
  14. Oh yes, thank you...that is by far one of my favorite live albums ever released. That version of Got My Mojo Working is definitely the highlight, and it is just perfect. Thanks for that clip too, I love how he starts tapdancing towards the end there
  15. On Miley Cyrus: "She’s had an album released as both herself and Hanna Montana, and unlike Carter, both albums debuted at number one on the Billboard 100! In America, that gives her an honor held by Michael Jackson, Metallica, The Beatles, and even Pink Floyd!" Haha, this is so true. I always just thought of the pop sensations as culturally irrelevant to anyone over the age of 11. I've never put it into a perspective like that. And after I read this, I can't help but agree with him: "How could allow that to happen?" Although, to be honest, I'd have to say the same about Michael Jac
  16. Oh wow, thanks for that, I can't believe I haven't come across that yet. How would you compare it to Breakin it Up & Breakin it Down? Is it as good?
  17. I came across the 1977 (I think) cd "Breakin' it up, Breakin' it Down" a few years ago, which is a concert from Muddy Waters' new-look 1977 band (with Johnny Winter, James Cotton, Pinetop Perkins, etc.) Ever since then, I have been looking for more live material from this band. Does anyone know if any other live audio or video recordings of this band exist, bootleg or official? On a different note, I strongly encourage any blues fan to buy this CD immediately. It merges delta-style blues, chicago-style blues, and Johnny Winter electric-style blues into a sound that is just unbelievable.
  18. Good to hear, I'm really excited now. So from what you're saying, I'm guessing he does play some electric...not all acoustic. Should be interesting to see what happens...
  19. I just found out the one and only J.W. is playing at a club near me on his American tour this summer...but it happens to be an acoustic club. If anyone has seen him, what does he sound like now? I know he has gotten away from doing straight rock and roll, and moved towards the blues, but I had hoped he would still at least plug in. Don't get me wrong, I would definitely be up for a night of "Dallas" and "Broke Down Engine," but to hear some of his electric blues, to me, would make it a better show.
  20. Has anyone ever heard "Mean Mistreatin' Mama" by Elmore James? I just caught it on a blues compilation disc, and I thought it was cool to hear: Can you remember baby, when I knocked upon your door Can you remember baby, when I knocked upon your door You had the nerve to tell me that you didn't want me no more. It's funny how when you start listening to the older blues stuff, you hear those lyrics pop up all over the place. The lyrics "happy home" and "mistreat" seem to be in every blues song. I was also surprised, after I listened to B.B. King's "Rock Me Baby", that the line from th
  21. I don't understand why people defend Robert doing whatever he wants because it "makes him happy," and then bash Jones and Page for doing the same thing. If it's not about the fans, it's not about the fans. They have every right to do whatever they want, without people judging what they're doing. They created the band; it's not like they're ruining someone else's legacy.
  22. Well...this is the "other bands" forum. I don't really see a problem with posting about the ABB here. As for the question, Warren Haynes is currently a member of the Allman Brothers. I think there is probably plenty of footage...although I haven't heard of them playing Hoochie Coochie Man recently.
  23. I've been wanting to get into jazz for a while, but I just had absolutely no clue where to start. I finally started to research a little, and got some Dave Brubeck, Miles Davis, and George Benson, all of which are absolutely amazing. I was just wondering, I know jazz is such a diverse genre, but does anyone have suggestions as to where I should go from here?
  24. Probably the worst I've ever heard. I wish there were a show from that era that had listenable quality.
  25. Haha, well I don't want to get into an indictment of society, but we live in a capitalistic economy where if you have an idea, you have the ability to make money off of it. No matter how much talent it takes to create the idea. The alternative is Stalin or Mao Zedong, where everyone contributes to the "greater good", and we all know how that system turned out. If you start trying to draw the line at which ideas you are allowed to make money off of, and which you are not, it can get a little hazy. Either way, Jimmy Page took the Lemon Song riff right off of Howlin' Wolf. If I sound angry
