    The Crunge - Best Live Version

    The best is the '72 San Bernardino (no vocals) in my humble opinion, very tight . . . and loose!

    Best Version of Black Dog Ever Played

    Yes I agree. On par are also my favorites . . . the Adelaide Australia '72, Japan 28--sbd version that came out not too long ago--Page is in creative spirits, and finally '71 Leicester are particularly aggressive versions with great vocals by Plant!

    John Morello Drum Solo Analysis

    Just want to add, he played and copied that because it was a powerful groove, at the start of the 7:45 mark of the '73 MSG solo, it sounds very similar to me, which has always been my favorite Moby Dick segment/groove! Check it out

    John Morello Drum Solo Analysis

    Ahhhhh, that's good . . . having never heard that before I can easily see why Bonham was influenced by this guy, not to mention played this same groove during many 1973 Moby Dick solos. Thanks for the share.

    The Concert That Predicted The Rise Of Led Zeppelin

    That's good stuff, I have the Killing Floor release of this show and you definitely get the sense of how crazed the audience was, not to mention the electricity in the air! Great to hear from those in attendance. Thanks for the share!

    Best version of Detroit 7/12/73?

    I concur, I've only owned the Akashic version and Graf, but kept the Graf version due to the slight sound improvement. Good luck, its a great show.

    Still the greatest rock band!

    I agree with every thing you said except the exaggeration of referring to RS as "lightweights" in comparison, getting slightly carried away, ZZ kicked ass no doubt, but when you throw shade at another group, especially RS w/Mick Taylor, you are pulling the rug from under the case your trying to make, they had raw power too, no monopoly on that. I'll repeat the case for Peter Green and early Fleetwood Mac, one of the most under appreciated and least acknowledged hard driving blues bands/rock artists! Green was a force of nature on the guitar, he always seemed to hold back more than he should have . . . left you wanting more!

    Still the greatest rock band!

    I have to add, one of the most "left out" groups that absolutley are in the top ten is Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, for only 2 plus years they created some great songs and Greeny was a force on guitar! I believe Page has even mentioned them a few times early on (1970) and later as an influence, especially the song Oh Well, which has similar breaks/pacing to Black Dog.

    Still the greatest rock band!

    Rolling Stones must be 11? Goofy list . . . Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac would make #s 2-10 sound feeble . . . Oh Well . . .wink, wink

    Definitive Blueberry Hill

    I agree, after listening to the new sndbrd 9/29 release in conjunction w/the insertion of the 9/28 Black Dog board, the sound is outstanding and the performance is ferocious, Pagey is all out randy, especially at the end of it, can't wait to hear the rest if I can live long enough . . .

    Next EV Release

    No idea, but after recently listening to the killer Black Dog from the Osaka 28, 1971, I sure as hell hope that great recording & concert is released in full soon, X-mass is coming and EV usually has something in store for the holidays. Here's hoping for a Christmas miracle!

    Could Bonzo play with anyone?

    I think he would, and still have been considered exceptional . . . Jimi Hendrix reportedly wanted him for a drummer, he would have easily thrived for him too . . . what if? Glad it didn't happen though!

    09/29/1971 Osaka - Stairway To Heaven - EVSD SBD Single

    Thanks! I was so damn excited to hear the news a little over a week ago of the release of this concert, only to learn a few hours later as I tried to order it, that it was only half the concert--Oh man that pissed me off . . . again, piece-mealing this out over the months and years! After having a quick listen by use of your link, it is a joy to hear Rock n'Roll so clear w/ Plant's voice up front, but especially Bonham's pistons firing like clockwork! I guess I'm going through the five stages of grief, but getting better, almost ready to move to "acceptance" after listening to that . . .

    09/29/1971 Osaka - Stairway To Heaven - EVSD SBD Single

    I fold! Done chasing the carrot, I'll wait for the cheapest option tooor until the whole thing is released, I hope they stack up and gather dust in their warehouse until they loose their shirts on this BS gimmick they are peddaling. I'll be in my 60s by the time these clowns are done playing their games . . . yes I'm jaded, got excited only to be let down . . . all within a few hours!

    Best Sounboards by Year

    Good timing as the Seattle 75 board tape just came out a year ago and is outstanding quality and performance. There’s a bunch for the 75’ tour that are good (Ones from Feb MSG and Ragin Cajun forget date) but not on the same level as the Seattle show. Orlando 71’, Montreux Switzerland 1970, April 28 Fillmore 69, Mobile 73’, to name a few great ones and get you started. Good luck.
