  1. I'd say 1979-07-24 is a pretty good choice, good recording with the band on fire with one of the best setlists they ever played, probably the best TYG ever and a brilliant ALS Another one would be Montreux 1970 as mentioned before I want to give the MSG shows in 1973 some praise too, the best Roberts voice was the whole year and good soundboards
  2. Live Aid gets undeserved shit, I mean yeah they shouldn't have played in the state they were in, needed way more rehearsing but what we got isn't that bad, Jimmy's gear is horribly tuned and the audio levels are all over the place but if you actually listen to what he's playing he's doing a pretty good job! Better than some 77 shows
  3. Seattle is one of the shows I just can't listen to because the sound quality is so horrendous, I love the idea of the near 3 hour show as early as 72 but man.... The sound is really rough, to the point that you can barely tell which song you're listening to
  4. One band has toured with better songs and it's Zeppelin in '79, Copenhagen to be exact
  5. He's even better there than he was in pretty much all of '73 and march of '75, if he hadn't caught that damn thing '75 would have probably been the best tour they ever played, even with his voice it's one of my favorite tours And damn Percy rips the harmonica up PS. I could have totally seen IMToD be switched with WtLB, like go between them on different nights, would have been really cool
  6. For me it's either late summer of 72 or Copenhagen/Knebworth followed by 19/9/1970(it's gotta be in there too) Oh and I really like Japan 71, especially 29/9
  7. Januari was obviously a rough month with Jimmys finger and Percys flu but man, Wanton Song and WTLB are without a doubt the highlight of those shows, does anybody here know why they were dropped so quickly?
  8. It's a shame there's no soundboard for any of the january gigs, I want a good quality version of Wanton Song and WtLB
  9. If I could change one filming decision in Zeps career it'd be to have them record the evening MSG show 1970-09-19 instead of RAH, that show is still my #1, it's perfect
  10. I love that Stairway, pretty crazy that the longest solo is on the last performance too, it's without a doubt an interesting last concert
  11. I don't think you can pin it on one year really, I mean the early part of 75 was bad but march and onward is fine I think, parts of 73 and 77 is worse if you ask me, hell late 72 was pretty rough, the worst month of Roberts voice might be January of 1975 though
  12. I knew it was from the song but I've never heard the original, Zeppelin were pretty damn amazing at incorporating other song into their own
  13. I'd add Trampled Underfoot to consistently well played songs, not quite at the level of IMTOD but TUF was for the most part very well executed
  14. I'll put another vote for both 24/5/75 and 25/5/75, they're both brilliant, love the raspy power that Percy gets out for these songs, his 75-voice fits pretty well with it
  15. Well we all know how Jimmy is, perfectionist to the nth degree, I think Zep shows should be enjoyed in full, there's a reason it was "A night with Led Zeppelin" instead of just Zeppelin in concert, I want the whole thing, the atmosphere means more to me than not hearing a bum note or two, I want it, warts and all!
  16. The beginning third really is the best part of the show but I agree, it's certainly not as bad as people say, anything with Zeppelin recorded on video is a plus in my book, put on the video with the godfather cds in the background and it's really quite enjoyable
  17. The recording really is good, being recorded in a theatre probably helped a tonne, I think the capacity is about 2 000 too and that's really the perfect amount for a recording. I probably listen to this show once a week it feels like, second most played show after 1970-09-19. Oh and I rewatched the Knebworth show(8/4, not touching 8/11 for a while again) and is it me or is WLL pretty fucking fantastic? I love how Percy really belts out the whole song, singing from his damn toes!
  18. The Ipswich show on the 16th is brilliant aswell, I'd say the uk winter tour in 1971 is Robert at his peak for me at least
  19. I agree on Moby dick being more interesting overall but man.... The intro to MD is some of the best guitar work Jimmy ever did, the whole tone on LZ II is perfect, so raw and rugged
  20. Interesting thought, I mean it was all very low key compared to the earlier tours, maybe he held back for the sake of the shows and Jimmy's state? Pure speculation of course
  21. That's true, TYG from Knebworth is amazingly emotional, the one from 7/24 has one of the best solos though
  22. I love (the first) Knebworth show because it's a solid show that's beautifully recorded, soundwise it's pretty good too if you get the release with matrix audio but the second night in Copenhagen blows it away, I've said it before and I'll say it again, I think it blows EVERY show after 1972 away, the '73 european tour, MSG in '73, Earls court and seattle/forum in 1975 and the forum gigs in 1977. I mean there's really nothing to complain about, no 40 minute moby dick(I usually like them but when they play more songs instead of a long solo I'm all for it), a 20 song long setlist, one of their strongest set lists ever if you ask me, Jimmy is on freaking fire, Robert has his nice consistent post-1977 voice.... It's brilliant really, a MUST have for anyone who enjoys Zeppelin live If only they played like that on both Knebworth gigs, it would be the greatest concert DVD of all time
  23. I don't know what order I'd want them so instead I'm gonna list what songs from the albums I want them to perform LZ I: Good Times Bad Times/Communication Breakdown(probably open with that, maybe just the intro to GTBT and then CB) How Many More Times(preferably some medleys in it if they still got it in them, no longer than 15 minutes or so though(Oh and probably put it towards the end)) Black Mountainside(Part of the oh so critical acoustic set) And if there's room I'd love to hear Babe I'm Gonna Leave You live again LZ II: What Is And What Should Never Be(really the essence of all good that Zeppelin was, the whole light and shade dynamic, also a bitchin' song) Whole Lotta Love(as a short encore or something or maybe replace the HMMT-medley if that doesn't fit in) Bring It On Home(love some harmonica in my Zep) Maybe Heartbreaker(Again, if it fits, I've heard it so many times live though so it's not too critical) LZ III: Since I've Been Loving You(one of the highlights of the O2 gig) That's the Way/Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp/Tangerine/Friends(Acoustic set) Out On the Tiles(just love the songs) LZ IV: Rock and Roll or Black Dog(again, encore or something) When the Leeve Breaks(didn't get enough of a shot in '75) Battle for Evermore/Going to California(acoustic set again) HotH: No Quarter(9 or so minutes like the reunion, Jimmy NAILED the tone on the solo, it was perfect) The Song Remains the Same(another great one from the reunion that I'd love to see more of) Damn I'm getting short of room! PG: The Rover(sounded great even with Percy's flu voice and Jimmy's broken finger and again deserves more plays) Down by the Seaside(One of my favorite Zep songs and it would probably go pretty well together with Tangerine or TYG) Trampled Underfoot, Ten Years Gone, Kashmir and IMToD(for obvious reasons) In the Light(I want it live!!!!) Maybe Wanton Song too P: Achilles Last Stand and Tea For One/Nobody's Fault But Mine ITtOD:In the Evening(just love it) Fool in the Rain or All My Love(ITTOD needs some love) So that's my(way to extensive) list, there's obviously room to cut some songs and maybe add something(Stairway due to popular demand) As I said in the beginning, the order isn't set in any way
  24. Percy's voice in '71 was just perfect
