  1. Liriodendron's remix is hands-down the best version available and fit for official release.
  2. This night was an absolute scorcher, with Plant in possibly his best voice of the entire European 1973 tour. The Song Remains the Same is my favorite performance of the song ever. Where is that rumoured FM recording!?
  3. The only two I skip almost every time are Moby Dick and Guitar Solo. Some of the older tunes get skipped in later years, especially Rock and Roll and Communication Breakdown; although Black Dog and Heartbreaker get the boot fairly often as well. This is because, as a general rule, I have found that the newest material gets the most interesting and soulful renditions on any given tour. 1977...I usually start those shows at Nobody's Fault but Mine since during The Song Remains the Same and Sick Again you can usually tell the band is still warming up and there isn't much variety in the performa
  4. Is audio quality important? If not, then I recommend Since I've Been Loving You, No Quarter, Dazed and Confused and Stairway to Heaven from Providence on 21 July 1973. Sadly we don't have a soundboard but the audience source is decent! If you're looking for something with better audio than that, Fort Worth on 19 May is held in high regard.
  5. I don't know, but it's clear there is a world of difference between the performances on 11 August and 4 August. Plant even brings up the bad press on the second night, so I don't think it's a stretch to guess that it was the reason why. It takes courage to play in public again after being away for that long, especially to such a large crowd. Then the press says you blew it, so back to square one! Putting yourself through that process again could easily take ten months.
  6. The story goes like this. Zeppelin, remembering the shaky starts to their 1975 and 1977 tour, finally take the time to be truly well-rehearsed before going out in public again. They play two warm-up shows to small venues in Copenhagen, and the insatiable crowd drives them to remarkable performances. Led Zeppelin, understandably nervous to play to a crowd of two hundred thousand, deliver a few lackluster performances amongst an otherwise strong set at Knebworth on 4 August 1979. Definitive versions of Kashmir and Achille's Last Stand in particular. However, the press have constructed a narr
  7. I'm very skeptical about this...can we even be sure of what these are recording? Onstage would be an odd position to place a deck that is also hooked up to the soundboard.
  8. Interesting, never heard of these before. It was a long tour with only a few stops (six over the course of a month). Only two nights have AUD sources, but it is confirmed to be the tour where Immigrant Song premiered and Whole Lotta Love took How Many More Times place as medley/finale. Could be great shows for all we know, but I doubt it if Page has never said anything about them. Either that or the tape turned out badly/went missing.
  9. Mind-blowing, in my opinion, the ultimate version of No Quarter of all time. People complain about the crowd at this show, but the way they clap in the middle of the song is utterly perfect, driving the band above and beyond.
  10. Been giving a lot of thought to what we may yet see from Zeppelin, and it occurred to me that just about the strongest thing they could release is a compilation of Knebworth 1979. You often see the idea get floated around that the DVD segment of Knebworth was the "best bits" and, while I agree this is true to some extent, if you look at threads and comments about Knebworth, you realize there is still quite a bit of what many consider "the best" that is still left unreleased. In particular, the performances of Since I've Been Loving You and No Quarter on 8/11 are frequently mentioned as top 5
  11. I'm convinced that's the key to a great live album. All of the best ever (Cheap Trick at Baduken, Wings Over America, Frampton Comes Alive) kept the audience noise high in the mix.
  12. For that show, yeah, but my comment was referring to the rest of those master reels (like 28 April). Unless someone threw them out, they got to be out there somewhere.
  13. It's amazing what someone who knows what they are doing can do with a remaster. Liriodendron somehow made Frankfurt sound like a multi...I don't even know how that's possible. Nutrocker mentioned in another thread that the exceptional quality of the 27 April 1977 at Cleveland might be because the lineage is a rip directly from master soundboard reels. If anyone has their hands on those masters, it's gotta be either the label or one of the members. Take one of those and use the Millard to make a matrix...that's a show I'd like to hear.
  14. I always end up editing the track lists, (for example Abbey Road I cut both Maxwell's and Her Majesty) and yeah, I replace Crunge, Dancing Days and Dyer with House of the Holy. Tighter, better album.
  15. You gotta wonder, right? Well, I suppose you gotta be in their shoes. If your friend is digging this song and wants it on the album, at some point you're just be like "Alright." Good example of this is Maxwell's Silver Hammer...everybody hated that song except Paul, yet it's still on Abbey Road. When it comes to doing it live, though, you're not going to be like "Alright." you're gonna say "Hey, we already put the damn thing on the album, screw you man!"
