  1. I'm here to refute it... 😄 Ok, this may blow your mind a little bit... mainly because it comes from a night that is not especially revered as being one of Robert Plant's best shows... far from it. It's actually the other first night in Tokyo: October 2, 1972. Here's the link to hear for yourself. This was brought to my attention in a member's-only thread of the Hotel sometime in the past year. If I remember correctly, the guy that pointed it out as being the last time Plant hit the "lady," created the mistaken impression amongst the readers that he was referring to the firs
  2. If I were a betting man, I'd wager this show is the first one (at 7pm)... and probably the only song that is missing from the tape is Bring It On Home. Add that song and the length of the show comes to about 90 minutes. There is a cut between Heartbreaker and Since I've Been Loving You, and in theory the acoustic set could have been in there, but the show was probably only 90 minutes long so there was enough time to change audiences for the late show at 10:30. I guess Dazed and Heartbreaker were switched because they weren't sure exactly which songs they were going to do, so they just pl
  3. And just when I thought there would be no 50th anniversary thread today... Strider saves the day!! September 4th is a sentimental day for me... not to mention arguably the most important date of my entire existence. To name a few milestones: 1987 - My parents met each other at a dancehall while in college. 1981 - George Strait (the first singer I called my favorite) released his first album. 1972 - The Price is Right (one of my favorite shows ever) premiered on CBS. And of course one of the most famous nights in Led Zeppelin history. But today didn't start of
  4. While I really hope HMMT was played at this show, all signs point to no. A newspaper review from that night specifically states that Moby Dick and the brief snippet of WLL were the only pre-LZ IV songs performed. I believe Plant also states on the next show that HMMT was being played for “the first time in a long time.” That same review states that the show was shorter than expected... which lead to a good amount of booing when the house lights came up. It is strange though that a second encore of Communication Breakdown didn’t happen, especially since many shows in January had it.
  5. Kashmir was performed very well at that show. No mess-ups and a solid rendition overall. In fact, I've always thought the whole show is very solid. It's not Page's best night ever, but certainly not his worst... and pretty much every song is performed really well. The Year of LZ blog even marks this one as a "Must Hear" and he didn't give those out willy-nilly. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that "The Destroyer" which is the audience recording from the following night, was the one released in 1977... and the "Destroyer" soundboard box set was released in the ea
  6. So I'm all alone this Saturday afternoon, and I've decided to have a Stones marathon. I'll be watching all the concert films from the '70s... Ladies and Gentlemen, L.A. Forum, and Some Girls. L&G is a classic and one of my first real exposures to the Stones. I've only seen the Forum once before, and Some Girls will get it's first viewing from me tonight. We'll see which one I like the best when it's all over, but L&G is gonna be tough to beat. Sean, I'm pretty sure you were at the 1973 Forum show, correct? Did you also see them at the Forum in 1975 and Anaheim in 1978? If so, whic
  7. I recently purchased a copy of Luis Rey's book. I've never read it before, but I knew how big of deal it is to many pre-internet fans and wanted it for historical reference. I found a copy for about $14 on eBay (1993 edition) which was good enough for me! I read the whole thing in just a couple of hours. Having been a hardcore fan only since 2015 myself, the Year of LZ blog has always been a big point of reference for me, and it was fascinating to basically be reading the prototype of that blog. In the write-up about the Copenhagen 1971 show, he mentions that Gallows Pole is played w
  8. Led Zeppelin Rarities posted this fabulous compilation today. Give it a listen... the sound is incredible!
  9. This show really does not have a definitive version out there (that I've heard at least). Which is a shame because it's one of the best of the tour. I think Nite Owl would be the man for the job. His matrixes are the best I've ever heard... everything he has touched so far turned to gold.
  10. Steve... since this thread is over 10 years old and a lot of information about this time period has been uncovered during that time, can you post a short timeline of events covering these two weeks? Just so you can bring us up to date on all the info that’s been posted in this thread... some of which has been disproven. Thanks!
  11. I wondered if he really did have the red one in that shot or if my eyes were fooling me. It's just barely visible. Since Robert said "Good Evening" right after that, I'd bet the pause to switch guitars was very brief. Maybe Raymond had seen the broken string ahead of time and had the red one ready to go. With all the new sources popping up, the 27th being one of them would be a real treat!
  12. Well I don’t know... the description doesn’t match my compilation. I have way more than just Black Dog from the 28th, and Moby Dick is the complete Ledsox merge. If they did use mine, joke’s on them, because I’m already working on some updates and may have a v1.2 released soon.
  13. I wonder what show that snipped of Dazed was from at the end of the video...
  14. If anyone else wants the download link, send me a PM. Specify MP3 or FLAC when you do.
