  1. I am sure this has made the rounds as well: Now, I like this a lot, too, but it sounds more like a straight up Whitesnake song (not a bad thing). I guess "Southern Comfort" is the 3rd outtake. Any more that you are aware of?
  2. WOW. That's better than about half of what was released on the album. Shame it wasn't released officially in the U.S.
  3. Thanks. I had heard about the "break in"/stolen items before, but didn't have the much detail. I was just curious how that went down. Also, appreciate the outtakes.
  4. Do you have a link to where you have written about this before, with more detail? Or can you elaborate? I assume this was a "Yoko Ono post-Lennon death" type deal where someone who worked for him took things?
  5. FANTASTIC! Exactly the kind of information I was looking for. Thank you so much.
  6. First time/long time. Zep fan since '85 when I saw them on MTV for Live Aid (not their best, I know, but a great "what is all the fuss about?" intro for a 13 year old). My aunt was a huge fan, turned me on to all the albums, took me to see the Outrider tour and Plant's "Now and Zen" tour (with Joan Jett opening!). Later, I saw Page/Plant at the Alamodome in San Antonio, and have seen Plant again since while he was a resident here in Austin. Anyway, getting back into Page era stuff post-Zep, pre-Page/Plant lately. Downloaded The Firm's first album from iTunes (used to have the tape) and pulled out my old Coverdale/Page CD. Some REALLY great tracks on those. I also think Coverdale/Page was his best STUDIO guitar playing since Zeppelin. I gave another listen to "Outrider"....not as good as the other stuff from '84-'94, but a couple nice pieces on there. Really sounds like another Firm album in places, which LED me to wonder the timeline of the compositions post-Zep. The Outrider Wiki states it would have been a double album had it not been for the home break in that transpired. Anybody have any more details on that break in, what kind of stuff (besides demos for Outrider, obviously) was taken, timeline of the compositions for ALL of the '84 - '94 work? I know he tends to write stuff and marinate on it for quite a bit. Looking forward to a new Page solo album in the (hopefully very near) future. Thanks for having me.
