  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAM!

    Sorry, I know you don't come here anymore, but I couldn't help it.

  2. I'm gonna miss you like hell Sam. I've always enjoyed your contributions to the various basement 'debates.' Your zeal for Zep, history, politics, etc. is matched by your staunch loyalty to your friends. No one could ask for more.

  3. Dear Sam,

    You are truly going to be missed. Your absence will be felt as your contirbutions and passion were what made the board a place to go. Love and hugs mate.

  4. Sam, my blues brother, the board is poorer for your absence. You're worth way more than 50 quid. We love and miss you.

  5. Oh Sam, where art thou?

    I'm also waiting for my 50 quid.

  6. solar

    A spot among the pantheon of martyrs is yours, kindly brave soul. Excelsior! Keep up your excellent work with street gangs and thuggery. Society needs more Magic Sams!

  7. Which would proclude him from receiving a writing credit from Atlantic for the length of the contract. Are you trying to claim it isn't germaine to the subject? Semantics it may be, but you said as A lyricist, not THE lyricist. If that's what you meant, why the hell did you get your knickers in a twist when I said it was highly dubious that it was his first lyrical contribution to the band? As far as stage ad libs not being writing Bong Man, would you say the same for the riffs Jimmy discovered ad libbing on stage? Whole Lotta Love was only one of those. There is more than one way to write, and on stage discoveries through improvisation definitely count.
  8. Quote from Wikipedia Robert Plant Entry: Plant and Page immediately hit it off with a shared musical passion and after Plant joined the band, they began their writing collaboration with reworkings of earlier blues songs, although Plant would receive no songwriting credits on the band's first album, allegedly because he was still under contract to CBS Records at the time.

  9. I'm not sure why I should, considering the disprespectful way you've treated me in this thread. But why not? You're on the losing end of this one. I'm well aware that a quote exists from Jimmy Page that 'Thank You' was the first song Robert wrote all the way through by himself. But that's not what you're trying to claim, you say that 'Thank You' was Robert's first attempt as a lyricist for Led Zeppelin, which would imply that Robert made no contribution to the lyrics of Led Zeppelin I. For what it's worth, the story about Robert being under contract to CBS is all over the web, including on Robert's Wikipedia entry. Substantiating it in a book will have to happen when I'm home from work. I don't know about the rest of you, but "It feels good to have you back again And I know that one day baby, it's really gonna grow, yes it is. We gonna go walkin' through the park every day." sure sounds pretty Robert to me.
  10. Plant received no songwriting credits on Led Zeppelin I because of contractual obligations to CBS, but to claim that he had no involvement in the lyrics prior to 'Thank You' is highly dubious at best.
  11. If someone earns a Hitler comparison, I say give it to them.
  12. Knebby: If you truly visit this forum, Zep members, get your asses to Wembley. Not so I can see the show. So I can see Levee swing naked from the gates of Buckingham Palace.
  13. I'm just glad to know it exists. As we now know from the release of the long rumored EC footage, f it exists, there's a good chance it will come out some day. In a way, I hope it comes out unofficially; because if "the editing remains the same", Jimmy will edit out every Beatles snippet, and "Where's Bonham?".
  14. Good to see you too, sir! You're probably right, highlights in a HTWWW type set does sound more like Jimmy. (HTEWW?) But from the sound of things, Jimmy would never release it. Morbidly, I think we might have to wait until Jimmy is no longer in charge of Zeppelin. UNLESS it's all a smokescreen and the tapes are excellent. Maybe the tapes weren't too bad to give to the Japanese subsidiary label, but too good. In my mind, there isn't much better live zep than Japan '71. I could see Jimmy wanting to keep "Live In Japan" in his holster for one more round of DVD/HTWWW style madness. But I think it's unlikely. I'm just happy the tape exists in some form. Any recording made with a six track is probably pretty good, I'm sure Jimmy thinks the new Paris 69 tape sucks too! This is a pet subject of mine because I think this confirmation from Dave Lewis hasn't gotten enough attention from bootleg fans. Certainly 9/29/71 is one of my favorite shows, and the idea of a potentially massive upgrade in sound quality is mind boggling. And if there's more than one show?
  15. Some of the Japanese shows were recorded at the insistence of Atlantic's Japanese Warner Pioneer Label. Grant recalls: "There was this six track transistorized board. Jimmy was a bit worried about this, so the deal I made was that they could record if we could have the tapes and take them back to England and approve it. So Jimmy listened to them and found them to be terrible. So he took the tapes back and wiped over them and used them again. So it was goodby 'Live in Japan'. Page did in fact rediscover some of these tapes when researching their tape archive in 1997, but they were not considered good enough to warrant official release when it came to sourcing material for the DVD and the live album in 2003. - From the 9/29/71 entry. "Some of these tapes"- does that mean some tapes of one show . . . or tapes of some shows? Can you imagine a multi show box set of Japan 71 shows, professionally recorded? Just because they don't come up to Mr. Page's very exacting audio standards doesn't mean they won't sound damn good to a bunch of bootleg fans like us.
