  1. If you have done business with Niwa, you may write him at his e-mail address and make inquiries. I just ordered the ''Live Yardbirds'' reissue and the ''Maryland Moonshine" repackage from him.
  2. Listening to my Moonchild Records release of this show as I write this, it really *is* one of the best shows from the 1st half of the '75 U.S. Tour!
  3. Just recieved this Email this AM-- It is unclear if they're going to another website provider, or E-mail lists. I look forward to doing more business with them. "This is Air Raid. Thank you for supporting the site for 20 years. Due to the influence of Covid-19, the provider was closed. However, AirRaid's business continues. We are looking forward to your order. We will contact you by e-mail with information on new music in the future. I look forward to working with you. Thanks Niwa"
  4. They *are*? Why would they pirate their own material at 1/4 the price of their regular titles? It seems to *me* that EV is offering a budget line of lesser-priced sets to compete with Moonchild. The three ''Evolution Is Timing'' sets and the "Mike the Mike" double box set, for example, or ''Dark Side of Zingpan'' immediately come to mind.
  5. Anyone heard from Air Raid as to their new website or ordering instructions? I don't personally have so much of an issue with Moonchild. $11 for a factory-made 3 disc set is a fair price to me! Yeah, I could download it and burn it myself, but like several other people here, I got turned on this through bootleg buying 40 odd years ago. I like a physical copy of a recording. Something I can hold in my hand. I like showing a fellow fan a release they've never seen before. I've probably bought 30 Moonchild titles in the last year, Zeppelin and Beatles mostly, how could I not? Many of the home-
  6. Hard to say, I'm watching it on a 70-inch 4K Def TV, and noticing video artifacts I've not seen before, but it may be the set is showing me stuff that was always there. So-- not an upgrade.
  7. So I am to take it that this is the version included in the ''Evolution Is Timing 3'' DVD set?
  8. Watching the 5/24 Earl's Court DVD from the Evolution Is Timing 3 DVD Box Set!!!
  9. Crowley didn't create Thelema, he wasn't even the first Englishman to use it, that honor goes to Sir Francis Dashwood, founder of the Monks of Medmenham and the Order of St. Francis of Wycombe, better known today as "The Hell-Fire Club." America's Benjamin Franklin was a member, or at least an Honored Guest there in 1760 or so. Thelema comes from the 17th Century comedy "Gargantua and Pantagruel." Sir Francis' mausoleum is six-sided, and of shape and dimension described in the first book where Rabelais writes of the Abbey of Thélème, built by the giant Gargantua. Their motto, inscribed in sto
  10. Yes, that's the Lamen of the O.T.O. he's wearing in the picture. The other sigil you have up there is a modified symbol of Crowley's Magickal Order, the A.'.A.'. (whose name is *supposed* to be Argentum Astrum [silver Star] but may in fact stand for something else). Crowley founded the A.'.A.'. around 1909, if I recall correctly. Crowley did not found the O.T.O; he assumed its leadership in the 1920's, the Lamen predates this. The Lamen is a pretty common object, you can go over to Ebay and find Lamen pendants, rings, hats, T-shirts being sold by a number of individuals.
  11. Well, at the time he sold Boleskine, (this was over 20 years ago, mind you) I was given to understand that it had to do with liquidation of material assets considered "common property" in a Divorce Court. There was a lot of talk among Thelemites, but nobody actually stepped up with the 200,000 British Pounds he was asking for it back in 1990, and it was bought by ordinary people who turned it into a Bed & Breakfast.
  12. No he's not, he wasn't, he never has been an Initiate of any branch or linage of the O.T.O. Mr. Page is a personal friend of the Caliph, (the Head of the O.T.O.) Hymenaus Beta, who is a personal friend of mine. Mr. Page has several American friends in the Order, people that he's known for decades, but Jimmy's never been much of a "joiner." Likely he didn't want to associate himself with the strife between different groups claiming to be O.T.O. back in the 70's and 80's, certainly didn't want to be percieved as taking anyone's side.
  13. "Authentic" in that it is a Led Zeppelin bootleg? Yes, it's a vintage vinyl Led Zeppelin bootleg. The market generally bears $15-25 per record, depending on condition, unless you have something rare, like original Rubber Dubber pressings.
  14. Agreed. I bought a couple of Highland Pink Floyd CDs over a decade ago, and "treed" them to members of the Laughing Madcaps, and they're still being bit-torrented! I love that! 8 or 9 years ago I got the Beatles Anthology Director's Cut DVD within days of its release to the hands of the fellow willing to tree all 8 discs & all the artwork to the Beatlegs group, it's still in circulation! Besides, I like having silver discs; the CDs I traded 10-15 years ago are starting to go bad; the factory-pressed bootlegs I've purchased have not..
  15. Ilve been living with this since its day of release. I've listened and watched several time. Well, the Rehearsal Tapes that were bootlegged back 2-3 years ago were a better rehearsal performance than the fixed-camera video rehearsal performance included in this set. BUT it's new, and it's good. I didn't care for the whiplash editing, three to four seconds at most per shot... I'll leave it to the experts with the sound spectrum analyzers to tell us what we're hearing... As others have noted, if this is the last flight of the mighty Zeppelin, it's a helluva high-water mark to end your legac
