  1. Presence hand built that site and took every precaution while updating it the very few times he did. I remember the last time he updated the forum, he was super nervous about it. ..I don't have high hopes.
  2. Not a mastering or production error, at least not one related to the recent reissues. The source tapes sound like they have deteriorated over the years. It may have been a mastering decision to mix them more mono to eliminate excessive dropouts or single channel damage, but that's just my thought. Half of Led Zeppelin II's companion tracks are nearly mono: Whole Lotta Love Thank You Living Loving Maid La La (parts of it)
  3. The Song Remains the Same. A close second would be No Quarter, followed by Jennings Farm Blues. The instrumental TSRTS is just incredible, possibly my favorite of all the companion tracks so far.
  4. You're saying that a live cd or dvd combo culled from the multiple nights at Earls Court, Led Zeppelin at the pinnacle of their popularity, firing on most ( ) cylinders wouldn't sell? Sure, How the West Was Won didn't move a ton of copies, it was also marketed horribly and released at the same time as DVD (which confused people because it was also released as a DVD-A). It's sales in no way represent the current state of Led Zeppelin marketability. The current remasters sales might be a better indicator, but there's not a lot of reporting on sales numbers.
  5. They operate out of Nashville. This has surely been beaten to death, as it is the only real clue we have regarding Pontiac video.
  6. Yeah, kinda took all the fun of anticipation out of that one
  7. I've noticed the rim on some of the vinyl is a bit steep and if I set the needle too close to it, it'll run down and skip into the song. Some of the discs also have a slight bit of a warp to them, but not so bad that it effects playing. I haven't bought an 8-track in a year or two, actually. My player died and I haven't picked up a new one yet. I'm now collecting Zep fanzines...those are accumulating quite quickly
  8. I've only received IV so far (will have Houses tomorrow) and I've got 29,753
  9. It is entirely ripped from the official LZ youtube page.
  10. I might. Dont think I've ever played a SNES.
  11. I only ever had the Sega growing up, until I saved enough for the PS1. Bought a NES a year ago, bought all the Mario and Zelda games too. Fun....but the nostalgia just isn't there
  12. Someone gave me a box full of Pogs, must have been towards the end of their popularity as I never knew anyone that had any
  13. Foam finger rubbing, teddy bear licking and wrecking ball riding aside....it's not a bad cover...could have been worse
  14. This guy? I'm pretty sure this is Roy Harper. If you watch the part right before this, the cameraman steps on Jimmys WAH pedal at 14:40. Jimmy walks over and turns it off at 14:48. I would assume Harper came on stage because the cameraman was getting close to the WAH again.
  15. This. According to Jones, he and Plant had such an influence on the album because they got to the studio early and wrote/worked out a couple of songs. Page and Bonzo jumped in to help flesh out Plant/Jone's songs when they got there. Not to say that Page was in great shape, but it's definitely exaggerated. For anyone who is unfamiliar with "Fire" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTXRP5tUpCk
  16. "Good Times Bad Times" is my second choice, and it's not because of the O2. GTBT is an amazing album opener, especially for the first album. A killer riff and groove, blistering solos, awesome bass runs, and let's not forget Bonzos bass drum (which still blows me away). Something totally different than what was happening in 1969. I chose "Whole Lotta Love", mostly because LZ II is my favorite album.
  17. I Love Lucy is another one that I can get lost in for hours. I bought season one on dvd a couple of months ago, looks much better than the crappy transfers they rerun on TV.
  18. I've spent entire days watching Beavis and Butthead, the Simpsons, or King of the Hill. NCIS marathons are hard to escape, especially with the way they start. Speaking of the Simpsons, there's a 12 day marathon on FXX right now...every Simpsons ever. They are on day 6 or 7 I think.
  19. He mumbles on the 27th (the date the vocals are from), on the 28th he clearly says "gentle", and on the 29th he mumbles again and says it a couple of times - sounding more like "gentle" to me. Gentle and devil sound similar, so it's pretty much what you want to hear rather than what he actually says. I've always sung it as "different"
  20. My absolute favorite part of the whole movie.
  21. Just to be clear, you're talking about this bit at 3:39? That's all guitar.
