  1. If it was up to Bonzo, Over the Hills would be played at every show.
  2. Silver Garden Supreme Dinner could come along and make more money, and market better.
  3. I'll never give a dime to these cheap bastards. From now on I'll be more than happy to get every EVSD release for free. The cost? I'll have to wait about 12 hours. To hell with the greedy bootleggers. Hoping someone better replaces EVSD's shoes. There are plenty who would. Hint hint.
  4. 6/21-6/27/77. Every night. Led Zeppelin Everest summit.
  5. Bonham. On the soundboards, for sure. He's usually yelling something here and there if you listen closely.
  6. Have you ever slapped a bitch? I mean, your bass. ?
  7. I've never enjoyed any instrument I've played more than a bass guitar. Gotta have a decent drummer to play with though. And THAT, my friends, is FUN. Or play drums. 😜 Just don't let them turn you down and play loud.
  8. I'm honestly the perfect example of "should I play bass or guitar". BASS. As someone who's done both, guitar gets old sometimes. Bass? It never gets old. And I've always had more fun playing a sweet bass line than going on a mountain climbing adventure trying to do some wild guitar solo, with hit or miss results. Play bass man. You could be an excellent guitarist, but in my opinion, you'll be HAPPY playing bass. And I think it is way funner. Plus, people are gonna want you. They'll NEED you.
  9. I've always thought that Jimmy was the songwriter, the magician if you will, Robert and Jonesy made Zeppelin sound unique, and sound tight, and Bonham gave Zeppelin their iconic sound. What's so cool about Zeppelin is that it wouldn't work without any of the members, unless in a perfectly ideal and luckily amazing reunion (with Bonzo's son). If the Concorde was still flying I could be there in 4-5 hours. Lol. So glad to see the man being honored and remembered. We wouldn't be here if it wasn't for him.
  10. Rain Song 3/19, agree, added to my list. Great balance of the instruments, and even thought many Rain Songs are good, Plant really goes above and beyond. 3/21 SIBLY, respectfully disagree, but I base this on the guitar solos only. Moby Dick, good call. Communication Breakdown, everyone says 2/13, but its not a best of Zeppelin 1975 anymore! Gimme Zeppelin! Is a must have, but not for a perfect '75 Zeppelin IMO. BUT... you're right about the full song, so... ok. Glad we share the same Over the Hills favorites. As we've done our listening, we know 3/5 is pretty damn cool an unique. 3/20 is also on my list, and it almost made my number one choice. Theres a part where Jonesy does a funky heavy metal groove and the rest play along. Love him on bass.
  11. I know what you mean and where you're coming from, and I'm usually in the same boat as you when it comes to other bands/new bands. Just think that if I can listen to GVF without turning it off immediately, they're not bad. I'm pretty picky, and I've listened to them and enjoyed a handful of times. But, they'll be history unless the songwriting gets better. The sound and style is just right though. They're not trying to be original, they happen to have a singer that sounds like Plant, so I think they made the right choice writing Zeppelin-inspired songs, otherwise we would never have heard of them.
  12. Ok here it is. Some I intentionally left blank, because after so much listening I couldn't come to an answer. For Dazed I'd say 3/21, and splice in the beginning of Dazed from 3/19 or 3/20 (since the sound quality and levels are the same) when Pagey's (slightly) out of tune. The Rain Song? Your guess... I'd listen more for the mellotron being in tune, but I didn't hear a bad one. They had that song pretty solid. Seems like 3/19 and 2/28 were good. Moby Dick, I can't tell, lets let a drummer decide on that one. Rock and Roll - 3/21 Sick Again - 3/21 Over the Hills and Far Away - 3/19 (or 3/20, 2/13 is good, not the best sound quality) In My Time of Dying - 3/21 (or 3/20, or 2/28, latter is HOT but feels rushed) Since I’ve Been Loving You - 2/14 (IMO, think this spot works better than after NQ, slows things down) The Song Remains the Same 3/3 The Rain Song - Kashmir - 3/21 (2/14 honorable mention and all instruments are evenly balanced, 2/28 runner up) No Quarter - 2/28 (use a latter ’75 NQ w/ faster solo for a bonus track) Trampled Under Foot - 2/12 (or 2/14. I found 3/5 to be a pretty cool, but sloppy, version FWIW.) Moby Dick - Dazed and Confused - Stairway to Heaven - 3/21 Whole Lotta Love - 3/21 Black Dog - 3/21 Communication Breakdown - 3/21 Heartbreaker - 3/21 *No Quarter (later ’75 version) - (bonus track) ? My list before 3/21's soundboard came out was good too, don't get me wrong. Hope I still have it. Hope you like!
  13. Done a great deal of listening to determine the best 1975 "show" using the best songs from each of the available soundboards, and I think you'll agree that its a pretty good list. I'll post it shortly when I get home!
  14. Why do you post that you care? Do you think we care? We don't. Tired of the internet being filled with people like you. Go bully or take your anger out on your wife or something.
  15. Such a shame Robert is in bad shape during this gig. To me its probably my favorite sounding Zeppelin bootleg. It sounds like a raw live studio set, from beginning to end. Love the sound of this and the Long Beach '72 raw multi's on Studio Dazed. I imagine they would sound similar to standing on stage with the band. And Bonhams drum sound on Studio Daze Long Beach '72 is nuts. Recordings do these a lot of good. There are high points of Southampton but for the most part, it reminds me of Robert's 7/17/77 performance. Jimmy not so much a problem.
  16. Its a good effort, but I think this project could use a version 2.0 from the maker of this matrix. IDK who made it, they came close, but I think they should run back through it, sync the audio a tiny bit more, maybe reduce the amount of audience recording 25%, and pan the soundboard slightly right and the audience recording a tiny bit more than that to the left. It does sound flangey, but all the good matrixes only have a touch of audience recording. They're nowhere near 50/50% sbd/aud. Not the good ones. Just hoping this guy gives it a little more time bc honestly it could come out REALLY good. I give it a 7/10 at the moment, only because the flanging sound. Just being honest, if I knew how to do these well I'd do them too... So basically, to whoever made this matrix, give it a couple months of work then release version 2.0. You might be surprised how popular that matrix could become. Just a little less audience tape. IMO.
  17. No 3/17 on the new release isn't an upgrade. Just get DADGAD's 3/17 soundboard version
  18. 2/28/75 gets one of my votes, but not my only vote. I get multiple votes.
  19. Whats left? Potentially everything from late 1970-1971 to 1977. Anything later is anyones guess.
  20. BS. They have at least all of 1975 and 1977. Its not what EVSD has, its what the person supplying EVSD has. The point is, setting these old legendary recordings is not something you can object to. Liberating a recording of such quality as 3/21/75 soundboard is NOT a sin. Idc who you are, it benefits everybody.
