  1. I was under the impression that Baez version only said traditional and that's why Page listed his as traditional, arranged by Jimmy Page.
  2. For the same reason that Ann Bredon sued Page for Babe I'm Gonna Leave You but didn't sue Joan Baez and willie Dixon sued for Wole Lotta Love but didn't sue The Small Faces for You Need Loving. They didn't care about artist integrity if someone who wasn't making any money recorded it, they only cared when there was cash to be made of a successful act.
  3. Did he remaster them anew for the individual albums or did he just use the same remasters he did for the box sets?
  4. My favorite Zep song is from III, which is Since I've Been Loving You. However, favorite album is tough. It's between I and II. I always saw those as sister albums
  5. Presence is a mood album for me. I'm never gonna play just one track on it but rather play the album in it's entirety. That being said, If I could only keep one of the two I'd keep ITTOD because it has more variety.
  6. I never disliked it but I found the alternate mix on the Deluxe Zep IV far more enjoyable.
  7. PG in the states is certified 16 times platinum because it's a double album so that means it sold 8 million.
  8. My answer my not be about a little thing but just the way they take the most simple little original and reinvent it to the point that it's another level of artistry.
  9. Hot Dog and yes I'm serious. I think Plant and JPJ totally nail the boogie woogie piano and 50s Rockabilly style. The lyrics are a lot of fun and even Jimmy's playing, which has been called sloppy, I think sounds good that way, for what seems like a fun jam session.
  10. Hello, I haven't been on ere in a while and I have voiced a lot of my points on a general music forum I'm part of and should have thought to come here first, my bad for sure. Here's a copy and paste of my own comment on that forum after finding out the verdict. I'm not gonna lie.This win for Zeppelin was an emotional moment for me and so was this trial.I'm almost glad now that it went to court, because it vindicates them, and brings forth a lot of facts about each song, as well as musical composition in general, for the Zep opponents to consider.I don't believe everyone who sided with Spirit are Zep haters and these comments are not aimed at them.But there are many, who had Zep lost this case, would have then attempted to trash the entire song, and pay no mind to the details of the case that favored Zeppelin.I'm gonna be 46 in a couple of weeks.Had Zeppelin lost their official claim to Stairway To Heaven, even just the intro, I would have aged 10 years.I kept Googling "Stairway To Heaven" on my phone early in the day, knowing that I'm on the East Coast and I would have to consider West Coast time.At about 130 pm East Coast time, about 1030 am West Coast time, I glanced again at my phone while sitting at the drive thru at the bank.I saw on Google from a Billboard link "Led Zeppelin Wins 'Stairway To Heaven' Jury Trial"A huge sense of both joy and relief came over my body and I felt emotion in my face.No, I didn't cry, lol, but I swear, I probably could have made myself at that point.I felt like they were attempting to take away a huge part of our youth and a huge part of Rock and Roll history.I felt they had no right, over something so short and common, to go so hard after a song that means so much to so many, especially this many years later. Even though it was only about a short intro, that intro is so iconic, it would have still royally sucked had they lost
  11. If he's still receiving royalties for non studio albums then Mothership, the box sets and live stuff has probably helped him too.
  12. I haven't purchased any of the companion discs except for Zep I for the concert. I have downloaded all the deluxe material. The rough mixes are really cool. The reference mixes, not so much. I do enjoy the backing tracks too.
  13. Seems like most people who bash other artists are clearly envious of the massive success of the one they're bashing. Baker insulting Bonham and Moon, as well as the Stones in a different interview, by claiming they aren't very good musicians and that Charlie Watts was the best musician in the band. Then as discussed here before, we have Keith Richards insulting Zeppelin and Bonham in particular. Then Pete Townsend once said that he played a Beatles track without the lyrics and it was bloody awful. Note that the bands being insulted on these examples are Zeppelin The Stones and The Beatles. Basically the three biggest bands ever. So it's clear the insults come from people who wished they had been as big or don't like that someone was as big as them.
  14. It isn't the same band on that album but it still showcased their ability to venture into new territory. That's a damn good pop rock album and that's not meant as an insult.
  15. I like Out on the Tiles too, mainly because of the chorus. The lead up verses always seemed a tad cluttered or uneven to me. A little rough around the edges. But a good song nonetheless.
