  1. Very nice photo, with regard to Robert Plant´s blouse, a joyful variety to the blue short blouse (MSG & 95% of the US tour), this is the legendary Bonzo´s Birthday party, LA Forum 31.May 1973, right? Here is another one:
  2. Indeed, such a great concert, IMO the very best of their 9th US tour. I strongly recommend V1/2 on the Graf Zeppelin label, the sound quality is much better than on the Winston Remaster.
  3. Really looking forward for this release on 7. June: remastered for vinyl, 3 LP set- love those songs!
  4. To continue the January 73 UK tour & the January 75 US tour with his severly damaged voice was Robert´s Kamikaze trip into serious voice problems. I still can´t believe that he didn´t pull the emergency brake- to postpone the concerts & heal the vocal chords would have been a proper formula. And where was their far-sighted, coked-up MANAGER, Mr. Peter Grant? It would have been his duty to stop this madness. But maybe he was too busy making poster seller lifes miserable, or doing similar highly important things. Grant was an eyewitness, every night, but he didn´t act. Failure, what a shame!
  5. Zepster1979 is talking about the 9 CD AUD set, which is mainly consisting of the Millard tapes. These tapes have been remastered & are from the lowest source generations, same treatment here as with the previously released Japan 1972 Box.
  6. There are some bizarre, peculiar & sometimes quite embarrassing Brits-Nazi- incidents, but don´t let them fool you, I don´t think there is any sympathy for Nazi ideology involved. Wheter it is our skinny hero in partial SS costume, fueled with cocaine, smack and visions of Charlotte R., or Kula Shaker, with the weird act of burning huge swastikas onstage during their 1999 tour. And don´t forget the late Lemmy Kilmister, the man had an extraordinary big collection of Nazi devotional objects. The Eisernes Kreuz around his neck was an original, I´ll bet you. Last AND least: the bunch of bright looking young men of the Hells Angels party organisation, most of them wearing Wehrmacht or SS helmets, as seen on the 1969 Brian Jones Hyde Park memorial concert. By the way, stormtroopers isn´t a correct & fitting translation for SS, Schutz-Staffel = Shield Squadron
  7. I have Graf Zeppelin´s No Longer Down Under, it is a mix of all the 4 sources & and I am quite happy with it.
  8. Maybe the dress-cover was controversial back in 1971, at least irritating for some "open minded" folks. LOL! But it is not the dress cover that makes this LP sought-after. It is simply because it is a first UK pressing. First pressings should have the possible best sound. Different pressing plants had/have different pressing quality (=sound quality) Take a look at the first UK pressings of Led Zeppelin LPs (I - IV), the ones with the plum label, you will be surprised by the extraordinary prices.
  9. I have both, and yes, they are both excellent. I prefer the The Great Beast, but that is just my personal taste.
  10. As usual the patience of a saint ist required. I guess there will be another 75 SB next, then hopefully some signs of live of the 928 SB. I really don´t think that EV will release the complete 929 SB before the 50th anniversary in 2021.
  11. The european pressings are manufactured by OPTIMAL/Germany, a pressing plant with a stellar reputation. The US pressings are manufactured by PALLAS/USA. This can explain possible differences in sound quality.
  12. The Doors / The Doors Locomotive / We Are Everything You See The 13th Floor Elevators / The Psychedelic Sounds Of The 13th Floor Elevators Tommy Bolin / Teaser Jimi Hendrix Experience / Are You Experienced Tom Waits / Closing Time
  13. Alarm! It´s getting serious, at last. Just saw this one: Coming April 2019 pre-order your copy today! Orders with both pre-order and in stock items will have all in stock items shipped immediately! Live Recordings On Vinyl LP! The April 24th, Fillmore West concert was the debut date of the Zeppelin's second US tour when the British band definitely conquered the American audience with their powerful and yet sensual Rock-Blues sound. The tour was a massive success thanks to the band's top form and inspiration and an extremely reactive audience. That palpable energy you can easily get through these historical recordings. Features: • Vinyl LP Selections: Side A: 1. White Summer 2. Babe I’m Gonna Leave You 3. Killing Floor Side B: 1. As Long As I Have You
  14. 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.
  15. 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...........
  16. 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:
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. Good Lord! No matter what you will nitpick after this precious 1980 tour, things can only get better. Enjoy yourself! Lol
  20. 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.
  21. HOTH March 73, PG February 75
  22. 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.
  23. 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"
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
