  1. I listened to every available recording from this tour for the first time this year for the 50th anniversary and ranked the shows as I went along. Details in the podcast episode below (28 minutes long): Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/rock-talk-with-dr-cropper/id1518703647?i=1000492257690 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/episode/65cQNXisz9vNApJMpe1pWm?si=5WBOtvZbRDi4KmTwu6RHkg Google Podcasts: https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9mZWVkcy5idXp6c3Byb3V0LmNvbS8xMTE5MjU0LnJzcw/episode/QnV6enNwcm91dC01NTcwMTUy?sa=X&ved=0CAUQkfYCahcKEwiI5YPSoIDsAhUAAAAAHQAAAAAQCQ September 19 - New York (Evening) September 2 - Oakland September 4 - Los Angeles September 19 - New York (Afternoon) September 3 - San Diego August 21 - Tulsa September 6 - Honolulu (Early) -- Only the truncated setlist holds it back September 9 - Boston August 31 - Milwaukee -- Would be higher with a more complete tape August 10 - Hampton August 15 - New Haven August 28 - Detroit -- From what can be deciphered through the rough tape, would probably be higher if complete
  2. My podcast episode ranking the 1971 North American shows came out a few days ago if you still need help with this, OP: Apple: https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/rock-talk-with-dr-cropper/id1518703647?i=1000491553234 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/episode/5FUEwa4XKcNUuTpU8QxfJj?si=XnYUFy6OQI2GquIEUZuj-w Google: https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9mZWVkcy5idXp6c3Byb3V0LmNvbS8xMTE5MjU0LnJzcw/episode/QnV6enNwcm91dC01NDcwMjQz?sa=X&ved=0CAQQkfYCahcKEwiI5YPSoIDsAhUAAAAAHQAAAAAQBQ
  3. Yeah, 6/22 is my favourite '77 show. 6/22 6/21 6/13 6/26 6/23
  4. That's funny that you had to come around to it. It's always been my all-time favourite show actually. Agreed on the Plantations. I also think it's a strong contender for Jones' best show of their career, which is interesting because he's so consistent that it's unusual for any one show to stand out as being far above (or below) the rest for him. Also, I'm a fan of 2/12 and it's obviously one of the best recordings, but 3/21 is unquestionably better IMO. To answer your original question, my opinion of 6/23/77 has actually declined a bit as the years go on. It obviously has some incredibly high peaks, but is also bordering on too loose/relaxed/jovial at times for me. I agree with what others have said about the Copenhagen '79 shows. Yes, Page is playing with great technical proficiency, but it feels kind of hollow to me compared to pre-1979. I might be in the minority here, but I'd rather make my way through a few flubs on his part in a decent '75 show because it has more feeling behind it (to my ears at least).
  5. I ranked Zepp's studio albums, minus Coda, for this week's episode of my podcast if anyone is interested: Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/rock-talk-with-dr-cropper/id1518703647#episodeGuid=Buzzsprout-5387995 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/episode/6lkL1aALsNrXAu9icdFJUe?si=JBR0JVMmRRGkZ8_fArx0_g Google Podcasts: https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9mZWVkcy5idXp6c3Byb3V0LmNvbS8xMTE5MjU0LnJzcw/episode/QnV6enNwcm91dC01Mzg3OTk1?sa=X&ved=0CAgQkfYCahcKEwjAh5_YnuDrAhUAAAAAHQAAAAAQAQ
  6. For sure. I dare say as good of a four show run as there was for any song in their career.
  7. Yeah, it's one that you definitely have to play fortissimo the whole way through on the skins.
  8. Good call. It didn't even register with me because that's how I play it in order to get the effect lol.
  9. To be fair, we can't say with certainty that he doesn't play on his own time. Just because he hasn't played for the public in years doesn't mean that he doesn't noodle around at home. I don't go on Instagram Live every time I sit down at the drums... Speaking of Instagram, have any of you seen what the Doors have started doing with this "Learn To Play The Doors" series? I watched the video of Robbie teaching "Love Me Two Times" and it was pretty cool. Whether or not Jimmy would have any interest in doing something like that (or be any good at it) is a different story...
  10. Plant already has one called Digging Deep, not sure if you're aware...
  11. Lmao about the poetry 😂 I agree that he likely wouldn't give the sort of insights about the shows that most of us would crave. Look at how he approached the deluxe editions of the albums a few years ago -- the debut was the only one that had live stuff chosen as the accompaniment. For the others, he instead elected to regale us with alternate takes and mixes which are of greatly varying degrees of interest IMO. I think this gives a lot of insight into the sort of thing he finds most interesting: minutiae. 100%. Jonesy is a witty and incredibly insightful interview guest with far fewer, if any, "off-limits" topics than the other two. Sometimes when they're all together he can hardly get a word in edge-wise, which is too bad, but if he had his own long-form platform like this, it could be really cool. Have you listened to Plant's podcast, @hummingbird69? I just recently got myself caught up on all of them and quite enjoyed most of them. P.S. If you're looking for Zeppelin-related podcasts, I started one recently. I'm obviously no Page, Jones or Plant, but here it is regardless: https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/rock-talk-with-dr-cropper/id1518703647
  12. Jones' bass in "The Song Remains The Same" alone is worth the price of admission.
