  1. At every show in 75 there were magical moments! The first few shows with The Wonton Song, and WTLB and HMMT Jesus these 75 performances are awesome! Jimmy playing with an injured finger and all! Feb 16 was an awesome end to the first leg and March 28th is a fucking amazing show to start the second. March 12th I believe is one of the best if not THE best of 75. Amungts my favorites are Seattle 21st. LA 25th. (All of them really) Vancouver 20th. Dallas 5th. Baton Rouge 28th. St Louis 16th. Msg 12th msg 10th. Phili 8th. And man those LA shows are extremely experimental is songs like dazed and NQ. Longest dazed ever performed on the 27th. Really cool. Can't ever forget Earls Court! All 5! The AUD tapes The first 3 shows actually sound good! Seattle's dazed has awesome solos and rythm moments like right b4 the San Fran part they hit this new jam for about 10 Seconds. And Robert sang for what its worth and I shot the sherif in place of San fran. Really awesome sound. And long Beach 12th dazed has another awesome part right b4 the bow solo man they go into this funky ass jam for another 10 seconds. Not to mention the playing at that show is just extremely fluid. They were truly in sync that night. Anyway I ramble, 75 is my all time fav year! Next comes 73 then 77 then 72.... The rest is random.
  2. I just noticed something. I joined this site on the 40th anniversary of the March 24th 1975 LA Forum show! Awesome! 

  3. I get a little confused with these rotterdam photos because he keeps changing. Like in some photos he's got, like, plain jeans on. Then in others he's got the star pants on. Idk I still love these early concerts cuz they did songs like WTLB and HMMT
  4. Been gone for a long time, 3 years. Well I'm back now! 

  5. Got it and it is an AMAZING show! Pretty damn awesome!!!
  6. I agree. I am happy with the LA Boots that are out. I love the audience recordings. It would be awesome to get an unheard 77 or 75 show! Like Houston 75, the full Tempe 77. That be cool! I would be so happy to hear that Houston 75 show!
  7. I think that the bootleg recordings are much better than the official HTWWW. I have heard Burn Like A Candle. But i Have the Welcome Back To How The West Was Won boxset and i have listened to this instead of HTWWW ever since i got it. I love the real live feel and how its not edited. Every song is there and you get to experience them in full on action un edited! I was thinking about making my own matrix remaster of the show using Burn Like A Candle, Welcome Back To HTWWW and the official HTWWW. But i never did. I think these concerts are amazingly powerful, Led Zeppelin very strong in 1972 and this is their peak 72 performances! I'm not sure what it is you're asking but thats my opinion
  8. 101. Rock And Roll 102. Sick Again 103. Over The Hills And Far Away 104. In My Time Of Dying 105. The Song Remains The Same 106. The Rain Song 107. Kashmir 201. No Quarter 202. Trampled Underfoot 203. Moby Dick 301. Dazed And Confused 302. Stairway To Heaven 303. Whole Lotta Love 304. Black Dog A loud pea whistle signals the beginning of Rock and Roll. Bonzo's thunderous pounding echoes off the walls of the arena as Page blazes through the guitar solos during Sick Again. As the song ends, Plant tells the crowd "hang onto your heads." In My Time of Dying is incredibly heavy. Bonzo hammers at his drums with unbelievable intensity during The Rain Song. No Quarter features Jones's first use of a grand piano. The instrumental section is absolutely fantastic. Page delivers an amazing guitar solo which ends in a series of violent outbursts with Bonzo. An outstanding performance, one of the best thus far. Page shreds through an erratic guitar solo during Trampled Underfoot. Plant introduces Moby Dick as "one of the most exciting events that you're likely to see in the next ten minutes." The arena quakes under the power of Bonzo's thunderous assault. An utterly devastating performance, one of the best thus far. Dazed and Confused features a brutally heavy San Francisco interlude, now transformed into a haunting rendition of Woodstock. Page's fingers get a bit sticky during the frantic guitar solo/workout section. The return to the main riff is a chaotic explosion of energy. As the song ends, Plant announces "Mr. Jimmy Page, guitar... Baton Rouge, a really good audience... and Led Zeppelin, just a fun-lovin' bunch of boys." Stairway to Heaven features an excellent, dynamic guitar solo from Page. Plant unleashes some spine-chilling squeals during the theramin freakout in Whole Lotta Love. Page's fingers become hopelessly entangled in the strings during Black Dog. Rock 'n' roll's heaviest metal magicians, Led Zeppelin, blended their past and present for a multi-sensational experience at last night's LSU Assembly Center concert. As lead singer Robert Plant told a packed audience early in the concert, it's "a cross-section of musical color we've managed to get together in the last six years . . . so hang on to your heads." "Hang on to your heads "was good advice as lead guitarist Jimmy Page sent wave after wave of hundred-decibel metallic sounds surging through a huge bank of amplifiers. With his guitar at crotch level and chest arched ceiling ward, Page seemingly has no bones — his body flows just as the music he orchestrates does. The three-hour concert, unmarred by intermissions and boring backup bands, predictably climaxed with the classic "Stairway to Heaven." The tall, wild-haired Plant stood spotlighted in gold as he temporarily tamed his screaming vocal cords to lead softly into the 1971 hit that remains their most requested song. But the tempo and intensity of "Stairway to Heaven" quickly climbed to a crescendo, only to soften, then build, then soften again. The concert itself was alternately but continually hard and soft, punctuated by smoke and swirling light. All of the group's six albums, including the recently released "Physical Graffiti," were touched upon. Led Zeppelin blended many of their songs together in long, somewhat new interpretations. "Over the Hills and Far Away" became "Misty Mountain Hop" and then "Over the Hills" again. "Dazed and Confused" drifted into a surprise rendering of "Woodstock." Bassist John Paul Jones was featured on the piano and organ in "No Quarter" amid rising blue and green smoke and swirling specks of green, yellow and red light. And drummer John Henry Bonham had the stage to himself for an extended (perhaps a little too long) drum solo of "Moby Dick." But throughout most of the show, it is Page and Plant who are front and center, setting the tempo, pace and mood. The Led Zeppelin show is a draining experience for both performers and audience. The pulsating, twanging, metallic rhythms, coupled with bursts of light and smoke, marked by screaming heights one minute, temporarily gentled tones the next, is an odyssey in itself. [By C. WEATHERSBY] My Opinion. I really like this show. Its a very good show all around! The playing is high energy from everyone and all of the long improvs and solos are really cool! The reason i posted this is because I have had the SBD of this show for the longest time! And i just recently came across the AUD recording! And I LOVE IT!!! I always grab the AUD recording of a show if its available. Like my collection of 1975 concerts is mostly SBD. And i love it when i find the AUD versions of them! Like the second Dallas show on the 5th, i found an AUD of that show and i love it! SBD's are definitely awesome and i tend to like them more! But a good AUD recording cannot be beat! The realness and ambiance and spaciness of it just makes the listening experience a lot more enjoyable, almost like you're there! I love to smoke a nice J and really zone out to a good audience recording! You really get taken places man! Zep was the best at taking you places! Their shows were so real, genuine. The setlist is perfect and its like a nice long trip into music. Like the Long Beach March 12th concert. That one really takes me away! Anyway i just wanted to share my opinion on both of these bootlegs. Now go find them and listen with me Long Live Led Zeppelin!!!!!
  9. I should not have said stupid. The drumming is just not to my taste for the song. I just don't think the song rocked as much on the 80s tour than the 77 tour. See, to my preferences, i would listen to ALS From Tempe 77 than any on the 80s tour lol. And cmon, I think Nutrocker said this in another thread, People have been changing their opinion, the Tempe show isnt really that bad! Most definitely the sloppiest, but not bad! Look i love led zeppelin, i am a DIE HARD, BLEED ZEPPELIN FAN!!! But for some reason i cant get into the 80s shows that much. At this point in my life and mindset, I'm more into the trippy 3 hour shows that take you elsewhere in the universe! Maybe even out of this universe!! I'm just grateful that there is a bootleg for almost every single concert they ever performed, give or take a few. I didn't live in the 70s but at least i have a time machine!!!!!! Thanks to the tapers! And whoever stole all these SBD's we have! (Sorry Jimmy!)
  10. OH SHIT LOL i never heard that hahaha Someone was an ass hole
  11. Ive researched this before, and i have always thought it was in new jersey. Well i know they did a show on August 16th 1969 in Asbury Park New Jersey
  12. I agree with some of this here.... I think the first Knebworth show was the LAST GOOD performance of the song. I really dont like any of the 80's versions. He doesnt play the drums the same at all! They sound stupid i think. I dont know how anyone can say an Achilles from the 80s tour was THE BEST or their fave. Any of them from 77 are better than the 80s tour, Even Tempe (which i tend to like, And i aint the only one ) But i agree with most on 6-23 being one of the best or my favorite, I really dont have a favorite, When it comes to having a fave or picking the best i really can't do that. I have heard and like way to many zep concerts to do that lol. Anyway I like most of the 77 versions. Fort Worth, I really like the Pontiac Silverdome version, I wish there was a SBD or a better AUD recording of it! Also Landover, there are a few good ones there between their 5 concerts there. And some at the Garden NY. I definitely like some from those nights. Anyway, i tend to like, LOVE Zeppelin a lot more than the average zephead.
  13. I know exactly what you're talking about!!!! This is great! I love hearing the tapers on the recordings sometimes. Like on that one during the LA shows "We've had the guitar lessons!!!" LOL!!!!
  14. This one is really awesome guys check it out!!! But in all reality its this one, Hands down May 24th 1975!
  15. Honestly lately, I've been more towards the audience recordings of 77. Most of the SBD's from 77 kind of sound really flat and lame. But the audience recordings always sound full and ambient and really open and spacious. Just my opinion But the best SBD i like listening to is between the Texas shows 5-21-77 and 5-22-77. And also the Landover shows as well. Other than that, like i said, I think the audience recordings are better and you will probably enjoy them much more!
  16. On another note, These are great pics people!!!! Thanks CALM DOWN!! LOL!
  17. Long Live Led Zeppelin

  18. Yeah but see, I dont think that really ANY of the 77 shows were bad at all, except Tempe and San Diego. I am an avid listener, I seriously love zep and i listen and listen and listen every day non stop almost and i really cant say that 77 was as bad as people say it is. 77 was AWESOME more than it was bad. I mean really it really was an awesome tour. It rivals 75 or even 72! But thats just the way I feel.in my own opinion from my own experience and listening of zep. Every single 77 show had great moments! Even Tempe and San Diego had great moments!IDK i guess i am such a huge fan that i just love everything LOL or maybe its the truth
  19. Yeah i know. He just passed away recently i heard. Yes thanks to Mike Millard, we got to hear some of the best zep concerts! Like the LA 77 shows! And yes i know about the last part of the 3-12 show, thats almost my most favorite show from 75! Dazed is really really awesome from that night! I am uploading that show next to my youtube page
  20. I know most people like SBD's. But really, the show from the next night is better. Even tho its an AUD recording. Its a really good one, some of the best. and this show is amazing! Really awesome version of dazed too!
  21. The huge zep fan that i am, I really cant say which is the best. I really dont think there is a best! But Earls court, the 18th or 23rd are really amazing. And the uniondale concerts 75. And LA 77. There is High points from each year.
