  1. No worries, mate, thanks for the info anyway!
  2. I hope I didn't offend anyone with my post, really (you weren't offended, but I don't know about the rest . I agree 100% about the total subjectivity of music I see your reasoning in disliking All My Love, although I'm rather fond of the tune. That's the beauty of Zep! There's something for everyone! P.S. Is there any way to change my username? As you can see, I typed the email in the space for the username when signing up I send a message to the admin last year, but no reply yet
  3. Don't shoot me, but I think Presence sounds tired as fuck. The history behind the making of the album is more interesting than the music in it. ALS and NFBM are certified classics, of course, while FYL is an underrated (albeit a tad repetitive) gem with a very nasty vibe to it, but the rest? Royal Orleans and Hots On For Nowhere are lightweight funk, not bad but certainly filler material, Candy Store Rock is one of the blandest, dullest rockers they ever recorded (and unlike the aforementioned two, its riff is really uninteresting and generic) and easily the weakest here, while the only use fo
  4. Good call about the Stones; as far as live albums go, Ya Ya's is pretty much a lesson on how to make one. Whatever they lacked in improvisation, they made up with a great ear for changing the sound, arrangements and melodic components of their songs. Too bad they're a pretty boring act nowadays (not that it diminishes in any way their glorious past ) I dunno about Santana; I saw the Tanglewood 1970 concert that's on youtube the other day and I didn't witness a lot of changes for the majority of songs (maybe I need to jog my memory, though, it's been several months )
  5. Now, I know "best" doesn't exist since music is all about taste, which is subjective. But I think most of us have more or less similar criteria when it comes to live shows, so here they are (ordered from the most important to the least): 1) Technical Skill - If you can't even strum properly, forget about connecting with your audience. Not only does every member need to perform his song parts, but they also need to be in sync with each other. This criteria seems obvious and unnecessary for the popular bands, but looking at the underground scene reveals a lot of bad playing. 2) Energy
  6. That would be great, man, I am interested 100% (let's do this through PM, I guess). I'll definitely get down to bootleg hunting myself to find what I'm looking for and If I do, I'll post it here for anyone interested
  7. It would be great if you could check, if it would be easy of course Yes, boards or multitracks since with an audience it will be more difficult, I fear
  8. Unless I'm having the wrong copies, no bootleg of which you suggested has the guitar on only one channel (although Southampton and especially BBC come close), unfortunately
  9. I have listened to this bootleg a few times, but, being an absolute dumbass, I didn't think of checking it Thanks a lot, Nick
  10. Hi, I was wondering whether exist bootlegs (from any year) where the guitar is only at one channel. I was spinning Live At Leeds the other day and it astounded me how good the separation is. On one channel you have the band without Pete and on the other the whole band minus some backing vocals (if I recall correctly). I ask this because it is great for going "full-geek" on the various details the rest of the band played without Jimmy's lead "getting in the way" lol. The official live releases sadly don't have this (unless I bought the wrong edition, which is unlikely), but what about bootlegs?
  11. It ain't easy, for sure, but most Zeppelin songs are intermediate (or more) level difficulty-wise. The difficulty of TSRTS is mainly its frenetic tempo -the techniques used are not that different from other LZ songs (apart from hybrid picking). Try slowing it down to a comfortable speed and practice the shit out of it
  12. Are we seriously debating Led Zeppelin's innovations? For starters, they simply invented heavy metal. Before you come with "Black Sabbath did it!!" remarks, take the time to re-listen to "Dazed And Confused" (the studio version) and try to put yourself in early 1969. Zep were not the first "heavy" band, or the first "hard rock" band, they were the first "demonic" band. Stolen or not (and it is indeed stolen), Dazed was unlike any other song before it. It was too dark, too menacing, too satanic, too eerie, too schizophrenic to be compared with any other hard rock song before it. There were heav
