    Favorite Plantations

    I'm sure this topic has already been discussed before, but it's not on the first page from what I can see. That's good enough for me. What are your favorite Plant lines between or during songs? From New York of 1975 "We ended up in a lot of strange places places in the world with a lot of strange people. Some good strange, some weird strange. But in the end we found, to cut a long, long story short. That there's a guy selling t-shirts there... that the Song Remains the Same."
  2. Posted this on another thread but I think it deserves it's own thread. Some of these ended up being played by the members of the band after they separated. Zeppelin I Your Time is Gonna Come is the only one. Good Times was rarely played but usually as a medley with Communication Breakdown. It usually wasn't played in full. YTIGC was played in a WLL medley in 72 but not in full. Zeppelin II Livin Loving Maid-it was kind of teased once. Full version of Ramble On. Ramble On has been played by Robert Plant and it was played with Page and Plant in the 90s. Never a full version by Zeppelin though just parts of it and they did this several times. Zeppelin III Hats off to Roy Harper is the only one. Friends was only played one time that I know of. Rumor is that they had to add a song because Bonham fainted back stage after drinking. This was in Japan in 71. Out on the Tiles was played several times in 1970. Every song off IV was played live. Four Sticks was only played a couple of times. When the Levee Breaks was played 3 times. Brussels, and two times in the Chicago shows in 1975. HOH D'yer M'Aker is really the only one. And parts of it were played twice that I know of. The Crunge was played live in WLL medley's in 75 several times. Basically in a full capacity. Sometimes it left off a verse or a line or two. PG The Rover was never played in full. There is one from a rehearsal in the 70's(I want to say 73 but it could be 75) Custard Pie was played by Plant sometimes in his solo tours. Never played by Zeppelin. Houses of the Holy was never played live by Zeppelin In The Light was never played live because the instrument JPJ used was so fragile they couldn't tour with it. Down by the Seaside, Night Flight, and Boogie with Stu Black Country was never really played in full. Presence For Your Life Royal Orleans Candy Rock Store Hots on for Nowhere Tea For One In Through the Out Door South Bend Suarez Fool in the Rain Carousalumbra I'm Gonna Crawl Coda Poor Tom Walter's Walk(it was sometimes teased in D&C) Ozone Baby Darlene Bonzo's Montreux Wearing and Tearing Other Songs Traveling Riverside Blues Baby Please Come Home Hey Hey What Can I Do

    Cool Soundcheck from 1973?

    Half of PG was already recorded or written previously. They played Bron-Yr-Aur in some 1970 shows. Black Country Woman and Houses of the Holy were also recording in 1972. Didn't they play Black Country Woman in 72?

    Cool Soundcheck from 1973?

    I bet this soundcheck or part of it is released with either Houses of the Holy or Physical Graffiti re-release. Along with the Chicago 07-06 soundcheck.

    Led Zeppelin's best live performance

    I might be able to get it down to about 100 I really like. Don't think I can pick a few above that.

    Best Kashmir live version

    It doesn't matter what you or any of the fans think. The members of the band called it Led Zeppelin and preformed to their best abilities. It was about as awesome a moment and we'll get. Back to the topic. O2 version is up there. Probably my favorite overall considering the circumstances. Vancouver March 19th 1975 is also a favorite of mine. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDpbLdc1U8M

    They won their first grammy!

    It's not completely satirical. Haggard didn't particularly like those that protested the vietnam war the way they did. There was a little bit of that in the song. He was very much for the troops. He wrote other songs more blatantly pro troops in that period as well. "Fighting Side of Me" being the most notable. But a lot of the song was more based on his dad being the ultra conservative type. In interviews I've read on Merle he seems very libertarian in his views talking about civil rights and that we should be on the gold standard. This should really all be in a different thread. Don't know how we got into Merle Haggard's politics in a thread about Zeppelin's grammy. The Grammy's are not about awards anymore. Which is probably the only thing making it watchable in some sense. It's basically a big concert show now. Glad Zeppelin got recognized but their legendary status was pretty much put in place without the help of the Grammys.

    He's more of a libertarian actually. Okie from Muskogee was actually and ironic song referring to his father. Merle was a big pot head during that time. Zeppelin deserved grammys in the 70s. This one just shows how weak music is today.

    Robert Plant Song of the Day

    Appropriate song for this time of the year.

    Jimmy Page on Hendrix

    I think Jimmy doesn't like using labels like that for anyone but himself. And possibly John Bonham.

    Pre-Led Zeppelin Jimmy Page Songs

    There are probably hundreds of songs Page played in and some we may never know for sure because we don't know which final mixes were used for some songs. Page supposedly played in Patula Clark's "Downtown", Marianne Faithfull's "As Tears Go By" Rolling Stone's "Heart of Stone", and possibly others like It's Not Unusual by Tom Jones, several Kinks songs. A few Yardbird songs.

    LED ZEPPELIN - CELEBRATION DAY (official announcement)

    That will probably be announced when it's annonced what formats it will be released in. I'm not sure there will be a ton of extras to release with the length being basically the length of the show(2 hours and 4 minutes)

    New "FIVE" graphic on Official fb page

    There will be edits between the songs I just hope that all the full songs from the concert are released. I don't really care if they edit out the plantations and waits in between songs. There will also be overdubs and sound fixes here and there. Again no big deal to me. The sound of every live thing Zepp has released has been amazing.

    New "FIVE" graphic on Official fb page

    In 07 it was 100 times bigger. Sites like this were getting so much traffic that the servers couldn't handle it.

    What is the best bootleg?

    There's probablyi around 50 or more really good ones that just about anyone can listen to. Honestly the list is too long to go through.
  16. When you realize that Rush one of the most influencial progressive hard rock bands still isn't in the R&RHOF after about 12 or 13 years of being eligible, that thing lost credibility a long time ago.

    No newly circulated live shows in 2011

    There were at least 2 new releases last year 75 Seattle SBD and O2 rehearsals and there were 2 versions of that. One that was fragmented and one that was complete.

    Songs played at every show since inception

    Forgot about Tampa but NFBM was played at that gig so it seems that the only answer is still that one.
  19. NickZepp

    Songs played at every show since inception

    I think there could only be one song played every show after inception because of the shortened shows of Milan, Chicago, and Nuremberg in 71, 77, and 80. Nobody's Fault But Mine.

    Tempe '77

    77 was just so damned inconsistent all year round for the band. Even though Robert's voice was much better than in 75 or 73. Plant's voice in 73 started to crack a bunch, in fact at times in 73 it was much worse than at any time in 75 which says a lot because early in 75 or Plant was rough. But there's some shows in early 73 or maybe it was late 72 where he can't even sing at all in some of the songs. But what makes up for his voice being bad at times during this period was that the rest of the band was so well practiced that it didn't matter. 75 is my favorite year because even on a bad night the band sounded amazing. But 77 was just so inconsistent all year. There's some real quality shows all year but then there's some real bad ones. The recording quality probably makes Tempe worse than it is, but I don't know if a great quality show makes it any good. Best shows from 77 IMO 04-28 Cleveland(much better than the SB from the previous night IMO) 05-21 Houston, 05-22 Ft Worth, anything from LA, and if you want July 77 it's 07-23 Oakland IMO. Even some of the SBs and more quality recordings(Millard recording from 06-19 for example) show how bad they played those nights more than anything. The NY shows aren't bad even though the quality of them that's out there isn't that great.

    Was SIBLY played at The Royal Albert Hall 1/9/70

    I would think if there were at least fragments of audio from this song at this show it would be out there. You would think SIBLY would show up if it were out there. So I'm leaning to no.

    Led Zeppelin Bootlegs

    guitars101 posts end up getting deleted. I've had that experience over and over again. If you have a boot you can post don't post it there. It'll get deleted. There are some good torrent sites. I know of a couple good sites somewhere on the blog world...that I kinda neglected lately because of that stupid thing called life. But making sure the the best live band of all time is well documented is a good thing.

    what the most longest Led Zeppelin concert?

    Last year I went to a concert with Billy Joel and Elton John that was about 3 hours with no intermission, but that was cheating because it was Billy and Elton for about 3 or 4 songs, Elton for his set, Joel for his set, then Joel & Elton again for about 5 songs. But then again Zeppelin actually did have intermissions for the bands at times. Bonzo's solos didn't involve the rest of the band for the most part. JPJ solos went on for 10-15 minutes without the band. Jimmy Page solos went on for 30+ minutes sometimes. Acoustic sets gave Bonzo a complete rest for 10 or 12 minutes or so. Zeppelin didn't have intermissions for the audience I guess, they did have some for the band.
