  1. "March 19 - Vancouver -- The 5/24/75 Dazed was my introduction to live Zepp, but I'm pretty sure this was the first full show I listened to. Other shows (like the two above it) might have slightly higher peaks, but this one is just rock-solid, good to great versions all the way through, including my all-time favourite version of "The Rain Song." One of the coolest, best, most concise (22 minutes and change) versions of "No Quarter" as well. It helps that it's probably THE best sounding soundboard of them all. ..." This one really grows on me. Maybe the best D and C of 75. Jimmy's guitar is consistently good throughout. And Jonsey's bass is so clear and prominent. What a fine player he was. For the band in this half hour plus - Not an off moment in the whole. Thanks for posting the topic so I could relisten to this great show.
  2. This forum. Great music. Great discussion. Call me a crazy Zep Head but I think they ran out of steam on March 21. At least compared to Vancouver. I'm listening to Ali Akbar Khan, the great sarodist. The Indian Jimmy Page. Maybe that will clear my head. Thanks.
  3. Hello again. I had a Zeppelin mind block, where you forget that a concert exists because you can't download it quickly. I just went to the topic, "SOUNDBOARD FORT WORTH 1975?" I saw my post from November 2015 - this show had a 6 hour download. So I didn't. And forgot it existed. Now my Zep head has been freed.
  4. I am double lucky tonight. First a cleaner version of March 12 and now this - a super version of March 3. It's like 2 lottery tickets coming in at the same time! I will have to download at least one tomorrow on Black Beauty. I have 5 hours of new Zeppelin to hear and don't know which to finish first! Thanks Strider!
  5. Wow! This is an improvement. I hope to find it on Black Beauty. Thanks.
  6. My number 1. March 20, Vancouver. Listening to it as I write. I vote this gig as the "best of" in terms of the band being very tight, and playing well together on every song. No rust here. And Robert's voice is strong from the start. And Jones' bass is up in the mix. My gosh, what a musician. Under-rated and often under-mixed. Tonight Zeppelin made it work. A real driving rock band. "February 12 - New York -- Another great Bonham show (see "Heartbreaker"). Definitely takes the cake for best sounding '75 show with the matrix." Agreed. And a great vibe. "March 21 - Seattle" - Number 1? - great peaks, but the band was just.... what is the phrase?.... a little off kilter. With the soundboard, I find it is a good yet an over-rated show. "March 3 - Ft. Worth -- One of the most energetic shows of the year....." I'm going to have to find this Texas killer! Interesting how opinions differ. I'm no fan of Long Beach but I still hope for a soundboard of March 12 to reconsider. I'm listening to Moby Dick, from March 20th, as I finish. I can't believe it. I like it! In reviewing these shows, it seems like the band has matured. 69 to 73 is great but wild. In 75, they no longer have to conquer America. They own America. And Canada too. Thanks for posting.
  7. June 21 1977. Millard. My favorite. Like a professional recording with happy warts!
  8. Cool! Yea, I noticed JPJ bass much clearer here. Wonder why JP didn't make it so at first release. Listening to DAC as I write. Much better. Thanks!
  9. Yes, this is good reading. Thanks for the suggestion. What I'm looking for is a more technical discussion of what the heck happened between the first release of HTWWW and the 2018 remaster. The 2018 remaster rocks - the original sounds to me - well, I don't want to put into print what I thought of it - but I do want to know what JP did to make this version much more "alive" than the original. How did JP achieve a richer sound this time? New sources, new technology, new ears? Thanks!
  10. Cool upload! How can we get the rest? Someone will have to a How Japan Was Won.
  11. This blows me away. Any thoughts on how they did it? I'm now a fan of HTWWW. Much clearer, cleaner, tighter sound. Thanks! PS. I'm actually listening to a download from a local public library. Good for them!
  12. Thanks Zep Heads JohnOsbourne and Gibsonfan159! Still listening to Mobile 73 as I write. I have not listened to the remaster HTWWW. Don't want to. I would like to hear Burn Like A Candle again if it was cleaned up. I don't have bootleg ears. I think JP should leave producing to younger ears. Someone like Giles Martin is better able to give us a fuller, more authentic sound of a concert. Especially after listening to a Mike Millard recording, it would be easy to replicate the magic of the band. Still can't believe that a guy in a wheel chair could hide equipment and make as good recordings as, well, Betty Cantor-Jackson for the Grateful Dead and Tom Dowd for the Allman Brothers Band. Wonder if any of the stage crew ever caught on to Millard's trick, watching him get out of the chair to adjust the tape? This DAC is excellent from 73. Thanks.
  13. Hello. I'm listening to Mobile 73 as I write. After 10 years, I'm still blown away by how crisp and well-balanced the sound is. It's as though I'm in the 5th row now watching the band to a perfect EQ through the PA system. And the Plantations - wonderful! The way a live concert should be released. 72 HTWWW. Start to finish a run through maybe twice since it's release. It's almost like high-tech engineers hired a great cover band for a digital studio day and audience noise was added. Good music but not the real Zeppelin at their peak. Any thoughts? Hoping to get the end of Mobile some day from the same source, with the encores, and without the over producing that makes HTWWW a "who is this?" experience. Enjoy the forum!

    Orlando overlooked

    6 threads on Japan 71/72 in the last 100 topics. True, there are more Far East shows to talk about. And Orlando is ranked highly. Just think, to requote Rodney Dangerfield, that this show don't get no respect. Thanks for writing.
