  1. Anyone else find they mostly listen to the Zeppelin boots? I love Zeppelin live so much that the studio albums sound so staid to me. I have box sets, remasters, the deluxe editions but listening to 04/27/1969, 09/04/1970 (obviously!), 09/29/1971 - Jeez I could go on and on, is a treat beyond what the studio albums can give. Plus knowing that what you hear is what they actually played is so much better than Jimmy's hack and slash of the official live recordings - poor old Robert gets about 30 seconds of Plantations and that's it. Just find that, like Jimmy once said, they are at their best live. Of the official concert releases there's nothing after 1973 of course. Just wish Jimmy would delegate a little bit if he finds editing concerts to be a real pain. Nothing from '75, '77, '79 or '80 is a real disappointment but at least people like Winston, weedwacker, Steve, JEMS, dadgad, Liquid Led and other great remasterers/remixers are giving us some of the finest post 1973 releases that I don't really miss official releases. Having the unofficial concert DVDs is great too. You develop bootleg eyes as well as bootleg ears so one you just open yourself to them they look and sound great. Well I've rambled on there (really, no pun intended!) so I hope some of what I've said strikes a chord. There are just some magic people giving so much wonde5rful music and for free! Total respect and thanks.
  2. Have to say that of all the versions of 9/04 I have, the one I keep returning to is 'Another Master', no label. I downloaded it about a year ago and it's still my favorite version. Replying to your post Steve because I know people love collecting different versions of 9/04 so this is definitely worth checking out.
  3. Thanks Steve. It's good to know that you're pressing on with remastering and remixing. No good waiting on Jimmy! Reading the articles on the Garden Tapes site they show just how meticulous and nit-picking Jimmy is when he remasters live releases (all four of them, wow! - Royal Albert Hall and Paris included). Probably take him about 5 years to do 1975-05-24 or 25 so they're not going to happen unless he finally decides he can delegate. 1971-09-29 and 1977-06-07 are fantastic releases by you so knowing there's probably some more to come cheers me up no end when releases have generally dried up so much. Great work man and really appreciated.
  4. Will definitely have a listen. Just 'Followed' your podcast on Spotify. Looks like you've some really interesting episodes to listen to.
  5. Mainly a question for SteveZ98 but others here may have an idea. With the new mixes and remasters done by Steve, Nite Owl and others, whereby the technology is here which can make old boots sound so much better, do you think the technology and tools are advanced enough so that something like the Bath recordings could be significantly improved and, if so, is it something that would be practical to do? We only have quite poor versions of Bath so it would be fantastic to have a decent quality mix and remaster of that date.
  6. Steve's phenomenal stereo remaster of 1971-09-29. As good as an official release and unscrewed around by Jimmy. 😄 A wonderful listen
  7. Discovered I don't have that many 1971 shows but a couple I would add is 1971-11-25, Leicester, 'Best For Hard 'n' Heavy' [EVSD] and 1971-09-09 - Hampton, 'High Heeled Sneakers [Godfather]. These are a couple of the releases I have and both are pretty good to say the least.
  8. Hi Steve, can I get a link please? Hell, I've got 11 versions of 01/22 so one more will be just fine. Thanks! Hi Steve, got the link. Thanks so much mate. 👍
  9. Steve's version of New York 77-06-07 - The Past Is In Our Souls. What a fine effort. A wonderful listen.
  10. Just listening to this again Steve. Love it. I was disappointed that their last New York run had no decent releases, until now. It's great Steve and just want to thank your for creating such a great version.
  11. What you've done with these releases is amazing and, to my mind, makes the lack of new soundboard releases not so painful. Being able to generate new life to average recordings opens up Zeppelin's live music like never before. Please send me a link too. Much appreciated Steve.
  12. I'm going to add these details from the Fanedit(or). If they should not be here then apologies, I will remove them. They detail just what the edits are and what changes were made. Like I said, it's a long way from perfect but is a decent stab at making a 'real' concert video. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Brief Synopsis: Despite some great live music captured in the movie, the concert is constantly interrupted by something either fairly uninteresting (dull documentary footage that seems staged) or seriously drowned in vanity (the band home movies, or fantasy sequences). This edit shows one complete uninterrupted concert out of all official footage available. Intention: The official soundtrack LP is a must-have live album, and I always wondered how the movie would look like if it followed the LP more closely. Previous attempts made by others are available, but they felt a bit crude so I decided to try doing the assembly myself. Additional Notes: Be aware that this movie is infamous for having been badly edited at the time. Especially regarding the sound/visual synchro. When preparing the restored DVD/Blu-Ray in 2007, Jimmy Page was not allowed to modify any footage of the film due to copyrights issues, but he did modify the soundtrack heavily to make it more in sync with the visuals. While being a huge improvement, many out-of-sync moment remains. Other Sources: -The 2007 double DVD bonus disc: Celebration Day (Cutting Copy), Over The Hills and Far Away, The Ocean, Misty Mountain Hop -The Led Zeppelin 2003 double DVD: Black Dog, Since I've Been Loving You, various crowd shots and backstage footage (from menu) -8mm footage from the concerts released by the band on Youtube: dialogues, performance gap in Dazed and Confused -An old VHS called "The First Cuts": alternative live concert shots for Rain Song and The Song Remains The Same -The remixed soundtrack from 2007 (double CD): Heartbreaker, dialogues, crowd -The official soundtrack from 1976 (Cd from the nineties): dialogues Special Thanks: Alain Le Roux, for whom this edit is dedicated, Paul Currie, from Yeeshkul!, for his kindness in providing rare footage across the Atlantic free-of-charge, Eddie Edwards, author of The Garden Tapes, for his deep research into this concert recording, Neglify, from the FanEdit forum, for being patient while guiding me through the approval process, TM2YC, from the FanEdit forum, for the absolutly fabulous artwork, And of course the guys from the Led Zeppelin forum. Keep on rocking! CHANGES Editing Details: -Jimmy Page used voluntarily 8mm and VHS footage for the LZ DVD 2003 footage. And for great artistic effect. I used the same technique: additive transitions, aspect ratio preserved, color correction, and syncing with the soundtrack. -The soundtrack is entirely made of the Kevin Shirley fantastic stereo mix. That is the glue that holds the movie together: while the visuals can be rough sometimes, the soundtrack quality kicks ass. Cuts and Additions: ADDITIONS: -4 new songs included: Celebration Day, Over The Hills and Far Away, The Ocean, and Misty Mountain Hop. -Added a few dialogues between songs using a combination of 8mm footage and the album sountrack. -Heartbreaker is included! Fully! This was made possible by using every backstage footage cut from the movie, and the 2007 CD, to create a brand new documentary/fantasy sequence,. -Black Dog is now complete, thanks to the alternate edit from LZ DVD 2003. ALTERATIONS: -The concert plays with the songs in their original playing order, and the music plays without any interruption. -The credits are now at the end of the movie. -Since I've Been Loving You use an alternate edit made for the Led Zeppelin 2003 DVD for the sole reason of being much more in sync then it's original counterpart. -A random backstage shot inserted in Dazed and Confused is now replaced by real concert footage. -The Song Remains The Same and Rain Song are entirely re-edited to include more actual performance footage, and less of Robert Plant fantasy sequence. DELETIONS: -Backstage dialogues are gone. -Documentary parts are also gone. -The robbery sequence is cut. Any allusions to it is gone. -The band "home movies" introduction is cut, as well as Peter Grant and Richard Cole fantasy sequence. The concert starts right away. TECHNICAL FIXES: -LZ 2003 DVD footage have their original aspect ratio corrected (using frames from the movie as reference), and level-adjusted (the blacks were crushed). -"First Cuts" footage have been corrected in many aspects: colors, speed, sync and aspect ratio (using frames from the movie as reference). -Black levels and contrats should remian consistent through the movie despite the varying footage quality.
  13. Very nice! Looking forward to hearing the complete version as well as more of your Stereo Project releases, Steve.
  14. "How happy would all Zep fans be if they had the fantasy sequence footage replaced with the actual playing," <cough!> In For A Quick Garden <cough!> A long way from perfect but a decent attempt.
  15. Holy......whatever!!! Four hours of 1977 LA Forum video? I must be dreaming. SOB!! 😨
