    Backstage arguments?

    If I remember correctly Bonzo´s loudness wasn´t the problem. Young John Henry showed some nerves and simply overplayed everything, too many fills, breaks & rolls- simply too much.

    New EVSD soundboard?

    Oh no, if it is going to be a January 75 SB, things will be completely different. Due to Mr. Plant´s outstanding vocal artistry the new SB will not only sell for just half of the usual price, furthermore, buyers will be rewarded with an additional SB (of their choice) for free. Those lucky devils who are able to send in their original ticket stub of any January 75 date, will be provided with 3 additional SBs- a kind of late compensation...........

    Underrated Band Photo

    You can´t see any amp or speaker cabinet in this picture, but they got plenty of them in 1973. I think you mean JPJ´s mellotron and the keys, clear to see in this picture:

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    Indeed, superdeluxe box treatment required. But I am afraid we have to wait for an EV box release, probably September 2021 to the 50th anniversary.

    Backing Vocals on Thank You

    From the companion book of the LZ II super deluxe box: Description of the Thank You mastertape: audio track nr. 6: backing vocals 1, audio track nr .7: lead vocals & audio track nr. 8: backing vocals 2 This doesn´t necessarily mean that both Pagey & Bonzo did the backing vocals, most likely Robert did one of the backing vocals. To my ears it is Jimmy.

    Nitpicking Page 1980

    Good Lord! No matter what you will nitpick after this precious 1980 tour, things can only get better. Enjoy yourself! Lol

    Jimi Hendrix

    The last 2 weeks I have listened from 12..-14 Feb. 75 (RP: our new record will be released next week) to the LA run 24.-27. March 75 (RP: Have you got your copy of PG yet?) Conclusion: I prefer the NY gigs by a mile & I badly need a overdose of some 70 - 71 boots.

    What show or live song are you listening to now?

    One of my favorites of the 73 US tour. I have played my Drag Queen Of New Orleans by Wendy last week. No Quarter is great, though the main guitar riff is played without wahwah. The drumming on Dazed & Confused is remarkably hard & daring.

    Things You've Heard From The Audience?

    This is rather "things you have NOT heard from the audience": 10/10/72 Kyoto, last gig of their 72 Japan tour After a 19 minutes long Dazed & Confused a puzzled Robert Plant says "Man sleeping in the front row, will you please stand up"
  11. MOJO Nr. 301, December 2018, LZ 50th anniversary special, Robert "recalls": MOJO: Did listening back to the performances from the LA Forum and the Long Beach Arena on How The West Was Won bring back any fond memories? RP: It´s not the Bonzo´s Birthday party one, is it? When Keith Moon was playing with us? He couldn´t care less about past or possible future releases. I doubt he knows what is left in the LZ vault. The remaster series & all future releases are totally in the hands of Jimmy. If only he would take the multitrack & soundboard tapes to Abbey Road soon.

    Jimmy Page Vs Robbie Williams

    Hold on, Robbie Williams will entertain Las Vegas from March to July 2019. I think he should stay there, no Tower House to ruin & the mob knows how to handle such a sweety.

    Celebrations To Jimmy Page - 2019.01.09

    Happy Birthday Jimmy Page! Just saw the complete setlist of Royal Albert Hall 1970 on JimmyPage.com, including SIHBLY & TY. A vinyl release would be a gift from heaven.

    Berkeley (Going to California)

    On CD I´d recommend Graf Zeppelin´s Going To California. It contains both nights in Berkeley, September 13 & 14 in excellent quality. On vinyl you can try the non label release Berkeley Daze 2nd Night from 2017. It is not that expensive & has awesome sound.

    Definitive Blueberry Hill

    Hi Neil, congrats in advance to your birthday-christmas present. Got my GZ BH yesterday, it is amazingly good. No doubt, to my ears the definite version of source 3 & BH in general. Instruments are perfectly balanced, voice & guitar never sounded that good. Also, drums and bass are much clearer, in fact the bass notes can be heard in detail like never before, and yes, it has an extraordinary punch in the lower frequencies. By the way, the 3rd CD with rubber dubber- source two is excellent too. So, when your family leaves home for visiting remote relatives, you know what to do.

    Anyone know other locations that the photo I uploaded lives at?

    These photos were shot during their 7th US tour in August 1971, Hyatt House in LA. You can identify the era by their haircuts/lenght & beards/no beards and Bonzo`s weight(lol). Jimmy indeed looked very similar in August 71 and September 70. They even confused it on Jimmy Page.com & in the Jimmy Page book, by dating Forum 70 photos as Forum 71 photos. But they got it right on the LZ.com timeline. By August 71 JP´s hair and beard is a tad longer, JPJ´s hair is noticeable shorter, RP has no beard, and Bonzo has slightly(!) overweight.(compared to Sept. 70)
  17. 97 years old Much better, around my 100th birthday I will visit Japan from 23.Sept. to 29 Sept. 2071, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of their first Japan tour. After this I´ll join the macaque-snow-monkeys in their hot springs, for the rest of my days..................

    Led Zeppelin vs Deep Purple

    Led Zeppelin VS Deep Purple- comparisons like this are not my cup of tea. I love both of them, it is as simple as that. And yes, Made in Japan is brilliant, no overdubs & no frankenstein-studio-wizardry. Mr. Page, example given.

    1972 soundboard recordings

    No soundboards so far, but a lot of very good audience recordings. This has been discussed many times, try the search function using "best audience recordings 1972" (or similar) and you get to the old threads.

    Definitive Blueberry Hill

    I have no idea. It is stereo, don´t know if only one source or different sources has been used.

    Definitive Blueberry Hill

    I have ordered my copy of "A Sweeter Blueberry" on Golden Eggs (the current label name of the Godfather/Eat A Peach people) yesterday on ebay, just € 23 excl. shipping. You have to order them very quickly after the initial release date, shortly after the price is increasing rapidly + they are really hart to find.

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

    Yes, a stunning in depth analysis- Hats off to Eddie Edwards. Though I naturally dislike the concept of an edited, patched Live Album, I do understand Pages´ motivation for "creating" TSRTS due to Plant´s voice problems & the misery with fixing audio & video for the film. But HTEWW is a different pair of shoes: vvv As part of a Life Archive Series I would gladly take all four (23.,24., 28. & 29.9) in a second. A possible more realistic option would be just one release, with the "best" versions picked from the four nights. But of course without any editing or patching! Jesus, there is nothing to be ashamed of, just some of the greatest concerts they have played ever. But honestly, I doubt that there will be any official release. I pin my hopes entirely on the bootleg producers.

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

    No doubt about it, the Winston Remaster of 929 is a very good one. But maybe the Matrix-Wizards should try to fuse Wendy´s Live In Japan 929 (the 2016 version) with the new soundboard, this could lead to a far better matrix.

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

    Agreed, Bonzo´s little accident plus Robert losing power & pitch would exclude 929´s STH from an official release. No disaster, as Jimmy could choose from four fantastic concerts. But the very thought of Jimmy mixing parts of songs from different dates, editing WLL and create a Frankenstein HTEWW- that frightens me. BTW I love 929s Tangerine because of Jimmy´s vocal backing in the chorus. His voice is very low in the mix, but it is simply beautiful, never noticed him on any other Tangerine.

    Vienna 73 and Bonzo’s Birthday Party

    Both shows are worth having, but imho both are overrated as well. Vienna: Page & Bonham deliver one of the best D&C ever. Jones is solid as ever (though plagued by a stomach colic). Plant´s voice is extreme weak, constantly breaking & squeaking- a piece of hard work. To make matters worse, Plant tries to hide his problems with a huge amount of vocal effects, which doesn´t help either. When I am in the mood for Europe 73, I prefer Offenburg anytime. I like Bonzo´s Birthday Party better than Vienna, though it isn´t in the top league with e.g Seattle, Providence & LA Forum June 3rd. Sound: For Vienna I´d recommend the Winston Remaster, with Graf Zeppelin´s Lead Poisoning just a tad behind. A Very Nice Night by EAP hasn´t conviced me. Graf Zeppelin´s version of Bonzo´s Birthday Party is the best I have heard so far.
