  1. I saw & downloaded this a week ago when it first went up, I also looked at this site to see if there was any mention of a Paris 69 Pre FM upgrade and there was none, I started to look each day since then and no mention was forthcoming I started to wonder if something was wrong, had all talk of it been banned or was it just something everyone knew about, so Yesterday I decided enough was enough and that I ought to mention it for the good of all just in case, now I'm glad I did because it appears there's lots of folk who knew nothing about it. Graham
  2. Thanks for that, I see it's in the Top 10 CD's section but has not yet made the 1969 listing page, it'll get there though and it's a really great boot. Graham
  3. Very true and I was quite surprised not to see mention of it anywhere, maybe someone should tell the guy's at Underground Uprising so they can do a review of it. Graham
  4. Not sure if this mentioned on here but I thought someone ought to, if you know where to look there's a CD of a TAPE of the Pre Broadcast reels available from the Olympia, 10th October 1969 in the CITY of Paris, so is an upgrade on that which has been previously available, so it's well worth checking out if you can find where to look for it.

    RAISING SAND 2

    I Just don't like all of it I find it boring, Just as I don't like all of his previous albums but think some are great, are you saying anyone that doesn't like every album Plant makes is selfish because that's a stupid argument, I may like the next album they do so anyone who likes that will be ok, but because they didn't like the first album they are still selfish, just the same as if someone likes Raising Sand but not the 2nd album have they gone from Ok to being selfish....I think not. End of this argument for me with you, for which I'm sure you'll come up with some kind of insulting comment about because that's all someone like you knows how to do.

    RAISING SAND 2

    Your reaction proves my point on on the anger issues, you're also unable to make a point without resorting to insults!!! I'll accept it's Americana which is a the minor point of my view I said it was bluegrass initially but never tried argue when it was suggested otherwise, I just make the point RS does nothing for me and hope the 2nd outing will be better that's all, It's nothing to get so stirred up about it's just a different opinion that's all.

    RAISING SAND 2

    It's an album that's been classed as Bluegrass by some charts in the US and Allison is a Bluegrass artist and a good one at that, but this collaboration just doesn't work for me. I know it came out in October 2007 but it's been gathering it's momentum over the last year or so. I guess I brought up the Fleetfoxes because both Raising Sand & their album have that earthy log cabin type of feel but one works & one doesn't. I'm not one of these who thinks Robert should be with Zep & not doing other things, it's only the fact for me Raising Sand doesn't work & both artists involved have done much better in the past for me, but maybe vol 2 will be better here's hoping as I don't dislike everything on RS there's a couple of good performances on it but I find I can't listen to it in one go as it bores me after the first 2 songs. We are all different & I'm glad Roberts had success with this, I just hope the 2nd outing will be better that's all. Graham

    RAISING SAND 2

    Raising Sand is one of the most overrated albums of the last Year, I love Blue Grass music and it's often thrilling and exciting music but this album is just plain boring. the version of "Fortune Teller" is terrible and a few times after hearing it I've Dug out The Who's "Live at Leeds" to clense my ears and hear the superb version they did. A much better buy over the last 12 months for me has been the Fleet Foxes album & EP, though not blue grass by any means it out classes the Raising Sand album. Graham
  10. Yes I think he's cutting his ties completely, although I think he should stick to the courage of his convivtions and stop performing the Zep songs in his solo shows like he did when he first went solo, as good as "mighty rearranger" & some other solo stuff was, methinks he won't take it that far as the Zep songs are the most popular part of his live shows. Graham
  11. Too Right, It's the Complete Zep Renion Gig we want & nothing less
  12. My First post in ages here. I have mixed feelings about this, I'm glad Plant has put out a statement & I'm also glad he's said no because his heart isn't in it, because it wouldn't be healthy for the band or the music if he did it for the wrong reasons. I obviously wish it were the opposite but he's made his decision and you have to respect the guy. I just hope he brings out some great solo music like he he did with "Strange Sensation", rather than the Bluegrass music he did with Allison Kraus because that did nothing for me, I really enjoy bluegrass music but that collaboration just never worked for me. I also really hope Pagey, JPJ & Jason continue to collaborate & get a really good vocalist, although not your typical hard rock stereoptype, someone good like Paul Rodgers, Terry Reid or maybe someone younger even, I know Rodgers will be out because of Queen but it needs someone of that calibre. One more thing I think it's time they released the O2 gig officially now there'll be no new music involving Plant & the other 3 guy's. Graham
  13. posted this on a similar thread, but I'll repeat it here just so everyone sees it...................... Watched the interview after my Mam rang to say someone from Led Zep is on TV, so turned it on & watched it. The interesting thing was when Plant was asked about Led Zep, he didn't rule anything further out. He said he'd enjoyed it, the press was great which surprised him and asked about the future for Zep, he talked about not being able to do it like the Stones or other bands who just keep on doing it as it becomes cheesy, what he said was "It's got be everything it was at the beginning, but at a different Stage in One's Life" Then asked to clarify whether or not it'll happen again he said "I Don't think I can think about that right now, I've got an American across the Atlantic poking me with a violin Bow saying c'mon tell em Robert" he then went on to say that with Zep everything was real, and whatever happens (Meaning in the future) it's got to be magic. So Unlike interviews before the Reunion he's not ruling it out, now that doesn't mean anything will happen but at least it wasn't a NO and he seemed willing to talk about it. Graham

  15. After having this new remastered version on both CD & DVD since it came out, and putting the awful editing to one side, I've come to the conclusion that The DVD leaves me as cold as it originally did and I'll probably hardly ever watch again if at all. But I am enjoying the remastered CD's much more than I ever did the original Vinyl release, the sound on it is vastly improved though that said it's definitely not one of the best performances at all. Graham
  16. I think it's a great DVD really well put together & fabulous performances, it was really refreshing especially after TSRTS which left me cold & still does even in it's remastered form. Back to DVD I watch it only occasionally usually about once a year, but I ripped the audio onto 4 CD's and I listen to that all the time, I always enjoy CD's more than DVD's.
  17. It sounds to me that you have a hybrid of 2 BBC concerts which used to do the rounds years ago, neither of which in your case are complete, though they can be found if you know where to look, what you have I guess are the first 2 tracks from the Playhouse Theatre, London 27th June 1969, with the remaing tracks from the Paris Cinema, London, 1st April 1971. Graham
  18. I've never been one for those long extended versions of songs such as Dazed & confused or Moby Dick, though I do enjoy WLL as it's basically lots of songs in one with less musical improv. All those 1975 SBD's I have which are 3 CD's I've edited down to fit onto 2 discs, I completely chop the drum solo from Moby so it's just the intro & outro music as I hate Drum solo's like that, & with "D & C" I chop out all the violin solo & much of the improv cutting it down to around 15 - 20 mins, which makes it more enjoyable & it fits 2 discs nicely which are great for storing in slimline double cases. Graham
  19. It's funny but I hear people knock these shows, but having attended the 2nd & now hearing both on CD in Sounboard quality I think they were fabulous performances, yes there were imperfections but nothing that detracted from them as great shows. The songs were trimmed down with no excessive solo's and the band were clearly enjoying it and these 2 shows were better than anything from either the 1977 or 1980 tours., but thats just my humble opinion. Graham
  20. I've only just seen this topic after posting in the who's seen Zep Thread, here's what I put there (sorry if you've already read this in the other thread)................ Not being one of the lucky few who got to attend the reunion this week, has had me thinking back to being a 14 year old and going to my first gig, which just happened to be at Knebworth on the 11th August 1979, I remember it being a lovely hot day (at least I think it was) & being excited at going to my first gig with a mate & his Dad, and yet at the same time being a little daunted as I'd never seen so many people in one place which made it kind of scary. I loved Southside Johnny, Todd Rundgren & even Chas & Dave (I know!!!!) Neither Commander Cody or the New Barbarians did anything for me, but it was just a great day all leading up to the main attraction and when Zep came on & played for 3 hours I was just blown away, I just enjoyed every second of it and it all just seemed to fly by. Thats 28 years ago now and I've got less hair which is also greying, but the memories are still nice, but whats more I can relive it by listening to the great sounboard recording & DVD's that are available. Graham

  22. I've got to say that in this world of wanna be's with no talent on shows like the X Factor, I'm impressed at the coverage & reviews I've seen in the UK, so all in all Great Coverage in their Homeland. Graham
  23. I'm with you there, I'll listen to the CD far more than I ever watch the film though I wish they'd included "Thank You" from the last night. I'm really surprised at Zep & solar may have a point about warners rushing it out for Xmas, but I just can't believe how poor this whole release is especially when you consider Page prides himself on quality output, and this certainly doesn't match that criteria either in content or packaging. Graham
  24. Having just today received my copy of the Joshua Tree Box set pictured earlier in the thread, I'm even more furious about the SRTS Collectors Box. The U2 Box is not only cheaper than the SRTS Box it also cheaper than the SRTS BOX & CD set combined, on top of that the Joshua Tree box is outstanding & will last a life time. Hope the Zep Boys enjoy the profits of a box which is to be honest a DISGRACE!!!!
