  1. Sounds intriguing. I'll watch this space. Can you let us know any more about the golden oriental vocal mix?
  2. Amazon for all previous box sets for me has arrived about 10 days after release date. For the last three I went with inportcds and they arrived on the release date. This was posting to Australia. Price was much cheaper, no complaints at all from me.

    Earl's Court official release ?

    If they were to do this, I hope they'd go all in. video, audio, everything. Is it safe to assume that much of the groundwork (baking tapes and transferring) would have been done for the 2003 release, or did Page specifically target only the reels from the particular performance on the particular night? Not underestimating the work involved but I wouldn't think they'd be starting from scratch. Couldn't Page also outsource the work and take more of a supervisory hands off/QA role. This and Knebworth would be crowning achievements in their catalogue.
  4. $310 USD I don't know the exact AUD amount, but literally minutes later I got a call from BankWest asking if I'd just made a transaction as it looked dodgy.
  5. Thanks for this. I ordered all 3 with international shipping to Australia for just over $310, compared to Amazon's (current) $475. I don't think Amazon reduced their price by too much for the last one, maybe around 119 per set (ex delivery), which still worked out to be more. Haven't used ImportCDs before so hopefully things are nicely packaged and arrive safely

    The Tea Party

    Also from their facebook page.... TLDR: tour, remastered album, 2nd disk of EOT outtakes, live, radio sessions (presumably the Bruce Dickinson ones), 180g vinyl x2 and double cd, and some kind of pledge music campaign... JUST ANNOUNCED: THE TEA PARTY CELEBRATE 20th ANNIVERSARY OF EDGES OF TWILIGHT WITH CANADIAN TOUR AND SPECIAL REMASTERED VERSION To commemorate the 20th anniversary of The Edges of Twilight, The Tea Party have announced the release of a deluxe remastered CD, remastered LP, and a North American tour. It has been 20 years since the group released the iconic album featuring such singles as Sister Awake and The Bazaar. The band will kick off the tour in Windsor, ON, on September 4th for two HOMETOWN SHOWS at the Olde Walkerville Theatre. The tour will stop all across Canada, and fans can look forward to seeing the band perform the album in its entirety. Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 26th and the remastered album will be released on September 4th with Universal Music Canada, the countrys leading music company. VIP packages for the tour will be available through MapleMusic beginning this Friday at 10am EST at http://www.ticketbreak.com/theteaparty. The band will also launch a PledgeMusic campaign on Friday, which will include a chance to purchase memorabilia, ticket bundles and so much more. All of the details for pre-order bundles will be found at www.pledgemusic.com/projects/tea-party-eot20 on Friday at 10 AM EST. General ticket sales begin on Friday, details will be made available on the bands website at www.teaparty.com. The Edges of Twilight, originally released on March 28, 1995, hit double platinum and was nominated for two Junos. The title of the album was taken from a chapter of the book Fire in the Head, by American author Tom Cowan, which also inspired the name of the first track on the album. Universal Music Canada will release both a deluxe edition CD of the album and a 2LP 180 Gram Heavyweight Vinyl edition of the original release. The 2-CD Deluxe, Digital Deluxe, Mfit & Vinyl Editions will include newly remastered audio. The deluxe CD and digital deluxe will also include a second bonus disc that will consist of alternate, live, radio sessions and bonus audio and the booklet will feature the story of the album with new band interviews and previously unseen photos. The Vinyl edition will include the newly remastered audio across 2 x 180 gram heavyweight vinyl that will be housed in a gatefold sleeve.
  7. We're gonna groove might actually be a 69 studio version and not the rah one?
  8. Presence looks very intriguing indeed. ITTOD looks like potentially just another companion disk, in the vein of LZ4 (minimal variation), and Coda looks absolutely superb! A brilliant conclusion. Jimmy is obviously keeping As Long As I Have You studio version for the next round of remasters

    acoustic instrumental favorites

    Do you use tabs? They are exceptionally useful. There's plenty of them around and they can help to iron out the kinks. some more great acoustic tracks (most with words, although I know you said instrumental in the title): Coil by opeth brother by alice in chains With twilight as my guide by the mars volta Cannonball by damien rice The foundry by gravenhurst Is there anybody out there by pink floyd Road tripping by the red hot chili peppers End of a holiday by fairport convention

    Winter solstice and the badger by the tea party are excellent pieces to learn. Quite challenging but rewarding
  11. I'd be happy with a release date too. I haven't listened to any of the albums since the announcement of the first box sets. Itching to hear them again. Anyone think that there is a "delay" and if so what might be causing it (targeting specific time of year like xmas, re jigging content to make coda epic after some disappointment with companion disks, etc)
  12. Maybe try discogs.com Depending on your location postage could be expensive. It's about to be rereleased later this year. If you can phob your dad off for another year with something else there'll be copies in abundance for cheap next year
  13. ^ snap. For three of my least favourite zep albums I'm getting tremendously impatient not being able to listen to them!

    Their worst cover art

    ^ but LZIII had a rotating wheel. That's pretty great I'd agree with LZII as well. Always baffled by the inside picture of the Zeppelin and the spotlights. And that colour brown....pretty mediocre Presence was always quite intriguing for me as an album cover, and I'd love to get an obelisk.

    I believe it was their rehearsal space for the 1973 tour, which was in old street in London.
