  1. Its simply stunning given the historic context. I have imagined the early meeting between the Zep and Atlantic camps in my mind's eye countless times. But never dared to imagine that such a moment would have actually been captured and preserved. What's just as interesting is that such a significant photo would be unknown and unseen ( to my knowledge) until a few days ago. Had this been available two years ago,I'm certain it would have and should have been included in Jimmy's photo book.
  2. It would be nice to have an informal Zep Summit Roundtable where all the experts and sources could research, exchange info and debate the merits of rumored shows. Sort of a convention but like a social symposium as well. Of course,we all know how the last planned convention went over. But it would be brilliant to gather all the folks with information and all sit around a table to see what could be determined in terms of Zep footage. Sort of like a Cold Case investigation.

  4. Wow. Thanks Riot! You've made my day. Is just it me or is this a monumental and historic photo? I mean,JP and PG at the actual signing of the band to Atlantic? This should have been in JP's book for sure. It amazes me what pops up after 40 years...never having seen the light of day prior to this.
  5. I think there's a market out there for intelligent TV. It seems as if the future of television is going to hillbillies,gators and Snooki. As much as these shows are profitable,I'm certain the large majority of the viewing public would tune in to shows with some actual content. Eventually,there will be a backlash against all of the trash on TV and the pendelum will swing the other way. Or so I hope. It doesn't have to be educational PBS style programming. Just something a little elevated from the catfish catchin' culture of today. And as long as I'm ranting about TV,why are there NO televisions or ANY electronics made in America anymore? It was all invented here! If a customer walked in to any electronics store throughout the US with $10,000 cash in their hands and said " I will buy the biggest,most advanced television in the store. But it has to be made in America",the salesman would look at them like they're crazy. Today the choices are Japan,Korea or another Asian country. Its not even as if there's a choice...say 50% Asian and 50% USA or European. Why are there zero electronics made here?...where the US was once dominant in this industry. I understand WHY its done overseas.....being cheaper. But how much of a savings is it if all the tens of thousands of electronics manufacturing jobs are lost? There should be an entrepreneur like Bill Gates,Ted Turner or the late Steve Jobs who starts an American electronics brand from the ground up. It would sell like hot cakes. I'm not much for conspiracies but damn! Who had a meeting and decided to pull the plug and sneek out in the middle of the night? And why are no politicians addressing this issue in time when unemployment is crippling this country?
  6. I may be mistaken.But I'm almost certain that I read that this performance would be recorded by the BBC.
  7. 1) I used to make prank calls to CNN for Howard Stern 2) I named the local AHL hockey team 3) I hold a U.S. patent
  8. Why is The History Channel ( Now just "History") such garbage? There used to actually be history on The History Channel....documentaries and interesting topics that were actually about something.Now its all about rednecks,gators and anything that can be filmed in a swamp. WTF? It's really an indicator of the dumbing down of America. This is similar to MTV's not actually playing any music for the past 10 years or so. Now its Jersey Shore or whatever trash is trendy today. It's mind numbing! I understand the economics behind producing "reality" shows versus documentaries or scripted shows. But where's the actual content with any depth?
  9. I hope someone is able to capture this event for us all to hear. http://hangout.altsounds.com/news/142675-kt-tunstall-john-paul-jones-play-floating.html
  10. Steve, Would you have any info on this photo? Thanks
  11. You're welcome Tanya. I thought you'd like that one....;-)
  12. Dave Lewis mentions them in his book. IIRC,the tone of his comment regarding the songs are that they exist. I seem to recall a remark about Jones on vocals on Lost In Space.
  13. There are a few things they didn't do that I wish they had: Played Four Sticks live more than once. Played In The Light and Houses of the Holy live Toured places like South America, Malaysia,Spain,Egypt and other "exotic" locales from which to draw inspiration. Released the two extra tracks ( "St Tristan's Sword" and "Lost in Space") from the fourth album. Released any multi track recordings from the Japan 71 tour. Released the jam session recorded around the time they were recording Physical Graffiti. Continued and released the 1970 documentary....
  14. So the question still stands. What was the purpose of the double mics? IF they were to multi track,that would mean there's at least one multi-tracked concert if you see the photo above. Then that raises the question of which show the photos are from. And why are the known 2 microphone photos from 1970? Just now read Jahfin's post regarding the Grateful Dead. So did they use the second mic for noise canceling at every concert? ( I find it interesting that the photo of Gerry was from a filmed performance). DId microphone technology improve so much after 1970 that a second mic wasn't needed? If that were true,then every photo of Zep prior to 1970 would show Robert holding two mics...assuming the band needed the noise canceling at every concert. Puzzling,innit?
