    New EVSD soundboard?

    I'm hoping it's one of the early 75 shows, maybe Bloomington Minnesota or Chicago. I like to hear that's adlist in soundboard quality and I have a feeling that's been in the works.

    The Jazz Thread

    Pedro Martinez is a BEAST!!! Check out his Tiny Desk concert on YouTube. Insane level of rhythmic virtuosity.
  3. The People's Front Of Zeppelin is a new YouTube channel devoted to playing covers of Zep's music, instrumentally (for now, until we find a great singer). Most of our cover videos are inspired by Zep's live style performances, but will also be posting studio versions as well. Please subscribe to our channel and follow us on Instagram and Facebook. Oh...and we are NOT the Zeppelin People's Front! 😏 Here is a link.... Hope you dig what we are about! If so, please spread the word!

    New Zep YouTube channel - PFoZ!!

    We thought about that for some of the bluesy tunes, like ICQYB, HMMT , even Dazed. Maybe a slide guitar to approximate the vocal inflections. Another idea is to do live shows instrumentally and have the audience sing along. Who knows, could be a fun interactive type experience. Depends on the songs though. Achilles would be ridiculous as a sing along. 😂

    Thanks! I also wonder if there is enough instrumentally to be of interest to a wider audience. I kind of doubt it, but for serious fans , I think it is interesting because you can really focus on all the parts better without the distraction of a vocalist.

    Our 77 style combo of TSRTS / Sick Again just dropped on our YouTube channel. Spread the word....PFoZ isn't fooling around. If we can find a great singer, it will be unrivalled. IMHO, of course. 😏

    Backing Vocals on Thank You

    It's hard to believe they weren't approached by the producers of Classic Albums at some point. If not, surely Jimmy is aware of the series. I haven't checked but I think the series may not be in production any longer but, an in depth analysis of even one iconic album would be huge, if it were BY THEM. Then we could actually hear the solo backing vocal track on Thank You for example. I recently started to watch a Physical Grafitti special because someone told me it was a " Classic Album" video, and I was sure it wasn't, but anyway....it was a disappointing program. The usual pablum. This is something that should've been worked up for the 50th ... especially with Glynn Johns, Eddie Kramer or George Chkiantz. Maybe they just want to keep things mystical and mysterious.

    Backing Vocals on Thank You

    I've been enjoying revisiting the Classic Albums documentary series and it sucks that one was never done... on Zep 2 or 4... or whatever. Having all the band members with sound engineers commenting on the making of an album would be a treasure. We might get answers to questions like this from the source. Such a shame they didn't do one. It's not too late though.

    Thank you!! Prob will be a while before we get to that one. With all the permission and keys, that's going to be a more complex one!

    Thank you, appreciate the shares! We would love to have a great singer on board , but we are still waiting. The instrumental aspect is nice though. I think it helps focus on parts that may be obscured by the vocals.

    Thanks Sean, will give it a listen.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'll check them out. I like Tedeschi Trucks...they have soul and that's what a lot of bands miss, but Zep had in spades .

    Grande Ballroom Detroit '69

    These photos were graciously shared by a friend named Tom Gaston, who took them on May 16 1969 at the Grande Ballroom in Detroit. He has never publicly shared them before. He gave me the go ahead to share them with the fan community so here they are. I checked this gig on the timeline here and there are no other known photos from this gig so this is a nice find.

    Grande Ballroom Detroit '69

    Haha, must have been very wasted. Pagey precariously close to the edge of the stage! Looks like they're in the middle of Dazed....the ahahahahahhhh part with Page bending the string on the nut , and Plant imitating. Helluva thing to sleep through....just like a lullaby.

    Greta Van Fleet

    I just listened to Rush's debut album for the first time in years and one thing that stood out to me was how for a blues riff based rock band debut, with super high range vocals, they just utterly destroy GVF. Is there such a dearth of current bands that play that style and can actually play their instruments well that results in GVF holding the title now? I'm out of touch with who are really worth hearing so can someone recommend maybe 5 bands that are better than GVF? Because I find them to be very mediocre, and riding a lucky wave of popularity because of all the comparisons to Zep, which sounds shallow to me. Plus the singer has very little of the raw bluesy power, and vocal character that Plant had. He sounds much more like a poor man's Geddy Lee or Rik Emmett.

    The Crunge - Best Live Version

    Surely you jest...they didn't play the Crunge in TSRTS, or at all in 73 US tour. 😕

    The Crunge - Best Live Version

    I can't find a version from 75 that isn't fucked up to some degree with missed cues. LOL. Frankly , this song kinda sucked live in 75. It always sounded sloppy and Plants voice was straining by the end of the show, not to mention those ahhhhh moans are annoying. I'd rather hear the Instrumental versions from 72.
