  1. "Trickier than a robbers dog" LOL." I usually go with the Collectors Review site but AA has proved reliable on inquiries. Passing on this one. Flagge is very hard to find but it is the definitive issue IMHO. Godfather is a let down but if adjust your EQ you can enjoy it.
  2. Thank you Sue. I really like your ear. Not in a Van Gogh way but you know what I mean. You should really "go for it". I can see your tapes being popular on a larger scale. TY
  3. Wow, I find the notion of doing my own Mixed or Masters intriguing but I can barely boot up. So , I ll just stick to listening to these and the others. I think they are great!! Would downloading them for personal listening be OK ?
  4. Just finished Texas 8/31/69. What a show. Jimmy is on fire!! Godfather is a great tape but I listen to The Nobs version more often. I m not sure on the sourcing but it sounds as good as Texas Blues and Texas International Pop by Liquid Led but less clicking. Whiskey A Go Go up next!! 1969 is short on material but Plants voice is just insane. And Jimmy is just so fluid and tight. JPJ s bass sound never sounded better. Did he use the Rickenbacher in 69 or maybe a fuzz effect? The lows on the bass tracks really sound incredible.
  5. Cashmere did a 24 bit remaster California Expedition , I prefer it over Godfather. I have the TMOQ Vinyl rip , Going to California and if it's any indication that Vinyl must sound good. These are two worthwhile Net Rips. Zeppelin was incredible in 71. Cashmere did 2 incredible releases and poof !?

  7. No ,I'm Jim always been. Fanbased projects can be absolutely great. I have so many obscure fan tapes that sound great. And are considered "Definitive" in my collection.Particularly some from 69-72. IMHO Winston and Liquid Led are in a league of their own. I have all of them ( I think ?). Downloaded with Art. Worth a million bucks to me. But they should always be free and appreciated To sell their product is scummy. Godfather is one of my favorite Labels . I am collecting the entire run. Some of their titles cannot be called " Definitive". But so many can. I just added " A

  9. I agree with EAPs Blueberry Hill being the definitive version of that show. Before that I listened to Winston's " The Great Love Affair" and before that TMOQs take on the show. EAP and Graf Zeppelin have been releasing some of the best boots I've heard . The later Godfather titles can also be included in that statement. Zepster was good enough to explain how these companies are focusing on quality and an authentic sound. As I stated in other posts I like to buy as many boots as I can for my collection . I recently purchased Graf's Fractured Ribs, it's a " raw " SBD of Texas 5/
  10. I'd love the Birmingham 77 Board to drop . I was hoping for the Philly 75 Board. But there is something to be said about being excited for "New Zep". Love it.
  11. Thank you. I was aware that Jimmy wrote SRS with the intention of it being an instrumental. They played it a lot in Japan and it seemed the band was unsure of a title for the song. To my knowledge it was never played live without a vocal....too bad, it would have been cool. I do remember reading (Steven Davis' Book ?) that when Plant heard the instrumental he quickly got lyrics together for the track. Lyrically it's not Plants best effort but I wouldn't call them bad. If I had to guess it would probably be the sped up vocal. Is anyone else able to shed light on this?
  12. I can't say I dislike any of the instrumentals. However, I have enjoyed the Song Remains The Same the most. IMO, I think it would have better as an instrumental prelude to Rain Song. The sped up vocal is a bit nasal sounding. I often play the instrumental in place of the album track. This is interesting. What was Plant's regret ? The lyric or the vocal, or both ? Personally, I feel the vocal leaves something to be desired. The sped up tape makes it sound a bit nasal. Lyrically the song is very good but I never got how SRS and Rain Song "fit" together.

  13. Thank you ! I just found Dusseldorf 1970 on the Reel Masters Label. I had a Source 2 copy of this show. The Reel Masters is Source 4 and a tremendous upgrade. I am going to try to locate this tape and purchase it, An under rated gem ! It's 133 minutes and my previous copy was missing Since I've Been Loving You. The pre album versions are great. Thank you, I believe this has to be the definitive tape.
  14. I like your list. It's not filled with the usual suspects. Despite Earls Court, Vancouver Montreux etc. being must haves I like to see that people are enjoying some of the great Audience Recordings. What would you say is the definitive version/ label for the Düsseldorf 70 show. I ripped one from the web that is Net Sourced (possibly but I forgot the origin. This was sampling a handful. My "boot ears" are pretty tolerant but Im wondering if there is something that would be more enjoyable and easier on the ears..
  15. Hi Sam, My name is Jim. I have a daughter who was diagnosed with Aspergers. From the time she was 2 years old I noticed she was not like my other children. At 17 she was finally diagnosed properly. It was so hard for us and a heavy price was paid by all. I was often traveling for my uncle, and for a time, 100% incommunicado during my time in captivity . I won't go in to my story. But my wife fought most of the battle and never gave up.My daughter Marissa or Rissi had been through hell. Loaded with uneccesary Meds for multiple diagnosis' , alienated by her siblings and peers even
