  1. One of all time favorites is from Whole Lotta . . . Japan 24, '71, sound isn't so great, but oh man is Plant's voice strong and they include some rarities as well!
  2. They are, coming in the next few weeks I've heard . . .basically upgrading the 12th show with the better sounding sources that aren't so bass heavy or boomy as used in Bootleg License.
  3. Is that in connection to the upcoming Bootleg License upgrade coming out soon maybe? Hmmm
  4. The '73 European run is the most intense series of concerts they played throughout their careers, AND Offenburg (in my opinion) is the best from those 5-6 shows. Page, Bonham, and Jonesy are just ferocious during that run, especially Page in the show you mention; and Plant sounds better too, compared to the previous nights. I don't know which bootleg you have, but there are some excellent sounding releases of this night. I've never heard of any soundboard for Offenburg, but many of the previous nights have partial soundboards---(give a listen to Vienna's Heartbreaker intro for a sample in-case you've missed it thus far) out there, so never say never.
  5. I could come up 10 easily, but they are all mentioned many times already above. I would only add that the '71 LA Forum shows are exceptional, outstanding, and in my opinion the best of the 1971 tour, minus a few from Japan, . . . oh how I wish another better sounding source would pop out of the ground soon. The singing, Page's playing, the medleys are first rate, and Bonham's drums sound absolutley thunderous in the sources we already have. That's all I have to say about that . . .
  6. You can do whatever you want, but unless you have a problem with science and the long history of human created vaccines/cures (small pox for instance) and the advance of medicine especially over the last 100 plus years, it seems a no brainier. If you trust engineers to build a plane that can take off, fly, then land safely, then you should have no trouble trusting the field of medicine. There are no guarantees in life, but hedge your bets and go with the option that gives you a little extra insurance.
  7. My favorite from the '73 tour is Kezar, SF, Bonham keeps a cool groove on his high-hat that I have yet to come across in any other version. . .
  8. Mick F. said something very similar in his book that came out in the early '90s, that their (he believed) success was on par with early Zeppelin and might have continued along the same trajectory. Jeremy Spencer was outstanding player in his own right too, his slide playing and signing Elmore James songs live was bombastic and top-notch! So strange how the guiratists all veered off on confused paths.
  9. A great run indeed, was it one or two nights of playing in Boston? During these recordings in Boston and of course others too, he was able to play so sweet and gentle, BUT when he decided to cut loose and dig in deep he was out of this world!!! Some of the most biting, raw powerful playing I've ever heard! He was good at leaving people wanting more, very selective and careful not to overdo it. Does anyone know during the live performance of Green Manalishi, is that Green playing bass before and after the long drum/congo section, or is that him on guitar playing the lower registers--sorry not sure if that's the correct way to describe it . . .?
  10. Hello Folks, Many probably know by now but Peter Green passed away a few days ago and would like to say what an amazing guitarist we lost. His influence was tremendous especially considering the short time he played. The rare live performances that were recorded for posterity are a true testament to his wizardry and interpretation of the blues and rock guitar! He was and is one of my favorite guitarists/song writers and singers! The shortage of live recordings as well as film of Green and Fleetwood Mac is a shame indeed, hopefully more will surface and give people a new look at one of the all time greats! B.B. King once said of Green “He has the sweetest tone I ever heard; he was the only one who gave me the cold sweats.” . . . In another memory I have about Green concerning the "Clapton is God" graffiti which was reportedly later amended after hearing Peter Green fill in for Eric in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers to "Green is better than God". If I'm remembering it wrong please let me know or share another tid-bit about Peter Green. RIP Peter
  11. Oh man, space coke, and this whole time I thought it was qualudes, thanks for setting me "straight"!
  12. Yes indeed, Bonzo's entrance into Song Remains The Same is nothing short of explosive, the entire concert he is a madman, how he maintains that speed and energy for almost four hours is unreal!
  13. Can you two please pull each other's hair somewhere else, good lord, enough already!
  14. I very much agree, impressive how dimensional it sounds to all other releases, especially the bass end. The same goes for Texas Pop, I didn't think that previous release could get much better . . . it was; and any day now I will get to hear the Vienna '73 matrix, that should be stellar as well!
  15. I believe Its a new remaster of Detroit 1973, the first night, w/ two separate sources, 6cd
  16. I have had the opinion that the Empress Valley Christmas Edition was still the best, but I quit collecting all the Eddie releases of this show for the last 5-8 years, but hard to believe anything would be significantly better than that one . . . but would like to know if I'm wrong.
  17. Ok, I change my mind now! Thanks man.
  18. Thanks for putting this out to us, I'm not a huge fan of the '75 tour, but agree on most, I think the Feb 14th Valentine's concert is easily in the top 5 though, one of the better ones for sure, other than the Seattle show, Long Beach 12 is without a doubt GREAT, but is hard to listen to from start to finish due to the overloading bass (unless I missed out on hearing about a newer/better source) aside from the Mike the Mike getting the last few songs. The Vancouver and LA shows just don't get me fired up though, although I know many love them, funny how the works from person to person. Cheers!
  19. Yes, I have thought about this too, probably more than I should have. My latest hunch is they will re-release the rest of 9/29 show on the 50 anniversary 9/29/2021 along with the rest of 9/28 in some mega expensive box set. They teased us w/ 9/29, by showing us they have bits scattered from all over the show, and then went the conservative route w/ 9/28 making us think "that's all folks". How long did they have just Black Dog out before this most recent release, was it 3 years or more? They are crafty bastards and I would'nt put it past them and their ability to wait it out a few more years. Who the hell knows . . .
  20. Ahh thanks buddy, love it, this is the song I am most looking forward to hearing from this release, and now I just heard it! Even though that temporary pause from Page was most likely a mistake, I liked hearing just the rhythm section there for that second, and then, SLAM! here comes Page again! Then ending is vicious too.
  21. Interesting, didn't know he's been around for so long. In the late 1980s through the early 1990s--(year I graduated HS) I used to have to go to many record shops in and around Minneapolis asking and begging for them to acquire these shows after accidently coming across the Smoking Pig label (2 sets of '69 shows in soundboard quality), after that I was hooked. Now a days I bounce back and forth from airraid, eric, and ebay. But never did those Tarantura shows ever turn up in those smoky record shops around 1990. Eric has received a bad rap sometimes Ive noticed on this site, but he's always been fair and friendly with me, do you know why? Thanks, just curious . . .
  22. Been mailing them (fishheads) out last few days, has already sent a batch a few days ago. Just has to cross ocean . . . it been a tough wait for those us with the "disease"!
  23. Good question, hard to pin-point, but I would go with what Plant said about California, "Great vibes" all the time. Tan blondes with open-minded attitudes, would also be my guess! But I have to disagree about 1971 being the "weakest". I would give my left and right testicle (already done with childrearing) to have a soundboard/excellent audience recording (or video for that matter) of those two nights in August!!! I would place very few, if any at all above those shows! Even his voice on the 21st was out of this world . . . just one man's opinion.
  24. Good luck to you on that, very encouraging stuff there, hope he's willing to work with you!
