    The space before the live decline

    I agree with pretty much all of this actually. I think there are a lot of serious fans who know the music well, who feel the same....and a lot who will give you grief over these statements. But I'm with you, the overall decline started in US '73, mainly Plant, somewhat Page , then it snowballed into more and more clams from Page and Plant, self indulgently long and meandering solos on OTHAFA, Dazed, NoQ, OOTT/MD, and uninspired rote performances, with flashes of brilliance here and there.

    Original Celebration Day on TSRTS Cassette

    Right. Wouldn't that just be a copy of the LP?

    The Cigar Wrappers "Illegal Immgrant Song"

    Yep, parodies are beyond reproach as I understand it...like Weird Al. I guess Zep can sue if they really want to.

    Is this a poem?

    Berkeley (Going to California)

    I dunno, but some people like to have the artwork, either that, or they don't know and don't want to bother learning how to download and transfer files , burn CDs etc. I can see paying for a bootleg if the company paid for the source and no one else has it...an exclusive. But it really doesn't make much sense to pay for stuff that's been around and easily available for years online. Having the vinyls in this case is nice and it still sounds as good or better than most CD releases. If you're into vinyl, GTC is best on LPs.

    That's probably the best option then, other than downloading it off some torrent site for free. Can't get much cheaper than Moonchild. Basically they just take torrented stuff and press some discs and put a little artwork in the tray. You could do that yourself if you have the know-how, and it doesn't take much. But if not then I suppose Moonchild is worthwhile.

    All CDs come from the original vinyl. If you have a turntable , that's the way to go. If not, Graf Zep's release will be fine, but there are many remasters out there. Godfather put out both 9/13 and 14 71, and it was a good , lower priced release . Depends on your preferences....more high, lows, natural, EQd. Etc.

    The Alyona Sings Zeppelin Thread

    Thank you. We will see if she's interested. Could be fun!

    The Alyona Sings Zeppelin Thread

    Would you know how to contact her? I'm part of a YouTube project called Virtual Zeppelin and we would love to invite her to sing on a video of ours. Right now we are looking for a singer but we have been posting instrumental versions in the meantime. It's a serious band, and top level players. No bullshit.

    Yes....but it fills some gaps, different perspective blah blah .

    Southampton '73 Multitrack

    I remember reading where Jones said something to the effect of...even on a bad or off night Zep was better than most and when they were on, they were unbeatable. That being said, I think Southampton is a rather pedestrian show by their capabilities. Plants voice was wrecked for that whole Winter UK/European 73 tour. Southampton is a good show but, Page and the band are insanely great on Offenburg, Berlin, Munich and Vienna.
