  1. I can't believe the way you guys are recording history. It's fabulous and thank you for doing it. x
  2. I hope to get this as a Christmas present but is it good or bad? I want hi-res sound from Zep!
  3. Yeah, someone else who's a hi-fi buff told me that. I hope it includes artwork and precious stuff that's often forgotten. A 24bit, FLAC download option would be cool too...
  4. Yeah I have that as a download. But I didn't tell you that... ;-)
  5. All the original vinyl up to Houses of the Holy. CD versions of all up to Houses of the Holy. Remasters boxed set. And the best of all, the SHM-CD Japanese 2008 Definitive Collection with the mini LPs and album art. Plus 'How the West was Won'. 'Coda' and 'Presence' are new discoveries for me apart from certain tracks obviously. Even 'Houses' is getting better! :-)
  6. Are any Zep albums available in SACD? I have many others but never seen Zep available. The sound quality is so much better.
  7. Yeah true. I went to see Muse at the BBC - again with free tickets. Just 400 in the audience! Brilliant!
  8. III for me. Playing with it now on my mini LP Jap set. :-)
  9. In no particular order... Ten Years Gone Kashmir Black Country Woman - yes, really! Down by the Seaside In My Time of Dying Night Flight In The Light Trampled Underfoot Bron-Yr-Aur Boogie with Stu
  10. Back in the day - around 1971, I applied for tickets for the BBC 'In Concert' recordings. At that time you had no idea and were never told - until you turned up - who was gonna be playing live. So it was very much luck of the draw. Anyhow I got tickets so me and a mate went to the Paris Theatre in London and queued. Rumours were aplenty, but we'd heard all kinds of rumours about all sorts of things... Well we got in and settled to watch the band. It was The Kevin Ayers Band. They were okay - entertaining. But guess who was on the following week?! How cruel was that?
  11. Absolutely agreed. But each to their own opinions. Nice first post mate!
  12. Well it isn't true. I do like them a lot. From 1-4 I played them to death, but after there are some gaps. However I've given Houses of the Holy another couple of goes and the tracks rate from 2-5 stars in my iTunes collection now. You can't expect to like every single song from a band surely?
  13. Thank you sir. I'm sure we all have similar stories about a lot of bands but Zep were such a significant part of me growing up!
  14. Hey, if you read my initial post you'll have read that I had a period where I moved away from Zep and got into Yes. This happens to coincide with the release of Houses of the Holy so I'll be honest - this was my first play. As you will know there is very little that grabs you wholeheartedly from first listen (Led Zep 2 being a notable exception in my case) so it may grow on me. There's no need to be so aggressive. I understand your fervour and I get that your a fan. But so am I. I am renewing my listening pleasure with Led Zep and discovering the albums I missed first time round. Houses
  15. Now I know why i went off Zep! I've just listened to my 2008 Jap boxed set and the good tracks are few and far between. There are some gems but MAN they got weak. Houses of The Holy is bad. Wholly bad... Just on Presence... hoping for better.
  16. That's the one track on that album I really don't like. :-/
  17. I forgot to mention, I still have that original album, along with all the Led Zep vinyl I bought. I'll have to dig '2' out, scan the cover and use it as my avatar...
  18. Yeah, sorry about that. I guess like most forums, as new people join, similar or identical threads may crop up. It's always interesting hearing people's stories though... :-)
  19. Hi Guys, I'm a newb on this forum but a long-term Zep fan. Scouring this forum I just wondered what the demographic was like. So how and when did you get into Zep? This is my story... At the back end of 1969 I was a 14 year old schoolboy living in England. I hated school with a vengeance and I guess it was around the start of my rebellious period and also when i was getting into music in a big way. My parents weren't well off and we had no record player in the house as I was growing up. But my grandfather had left me an old reel-to-reel tape machine and I'd also rescued an old valv
