    Bolin did not get some bad smack in Indonesia. Or at least, that's not the reason he played shit. He had gotten high at the Tokyo hotel, and fell asleep on his arm for 8 hours. 

    Their show at the Budokan was attended by 14,000 people - a record breaking crowd. However, they did play a beautiful "Soldier Of Fortune". 

    Miami had an amazing setlist, and NZ was pretty good, considering it to be one of the first shows of the tour. But, as soon as they hit Australia it was clear the end was near....

    Wheter inferior smack or bad shot, his left arm was numb after that event in Indonesia, badly affecting his playing on the following Japan shows. His claim of falling asleep on his arm was just a lame excuse.

    What is the brief opening guitar song in the Song Remains the Same Movie?  The song that is playing when the concert hall is dark and the doves fly away?  I know Rock n Roll is the first song but this is before that....just guitar.

    Song: Bron-Yr-Aur

    Album: Physical Graffiti

    Artist: Led Zeppelin

    Get yourself a copy, you might like it

    Not sure who they asked in order to determine that Bustin' Out For Rosey is Bolin's 'most popular song'.

    Maybe the same clowns who are responsible  for the 2017 vinyl release of the Northern Lights recordings from Sept. 1976. This uneven, uninspired performance clearly shows the limited capacity of Johnny Bolin. I know it was a hard time for Tommy Bolin, the ugly breakup with longtime-love Karen, his increasing problems with booze and hard drugs, Narada Michael Walden had left and Bobby Berge wasn´t available either. But to put Johnny on the same stage with Haslip, Stein & Bell was truly a bad decision. Sorry to say that, but imho every high school band should have a far better drummer than Johnny was back in 1976. There are excellent shows from the first tour in April/May 76 and of course the mindblowing Ebbets Field shows from 1974 which would highly deserve a vinyl release.

    Anyway, I am excited about the upcoming LP.

    taking your closing comment I prefer to play lps and have a lot of zep boots . lps imho sound better . even older boot lps eg original eddie sound as good current eddie cds . but it is a very personal thing and each to there own . it is a pity I cant sit you down in my seat hand you a beer and then play lps against cds 

    Funny, when it´s about official releases I prefer vinyl, have collected a lot of first/early pressings and Mofi or Analogue Prod. releases- CDs for the car and boots. I had some LZ LP-boots in the early 90ies, sold them when I discovered better sounding CDs over the years. The recent "Going to Cal"- 9/14 LP on Casino Records is a really good sounding release, but I do prefer the excellent Graf Zeppelin CD.

    Anyway, enjoy your Final Option, that´s all that matters.

    And yes, it´s a pity......

    Are you sure that the white splash vinyl indicates that there is a Swingin´Pig release? Is it confirmed that the LPs of the original RSR release are black? I think I haven´t seen pictures of black LPs yet.

    Also, I haven´t seen a photo of a box with the Swingin`Pig logo either.

    There is the original release 148 x 70 lps and 2 x 72 lps . I am referring obviously to the Final Option . Now I have seen lots of pictures of this set . Then I read years ago that The Swinging Pig label issued a copy . Try as I might I have never seen a picture of the Swinging Pig issue . When I tried checking online the usual pictures of the original release appear . So my questions are  - 

    a ) did Swinging Pig release a copy of the original ?

    b ) anyone reading this do they have the Swinging Pig set and if so can they provide some pictures 

    c ) how do you tell the difference between the two sets ? 

    Never heard of a Swingin`Pig release.


    IMO the soundquality of the Final Option Box is outdated for a long time.

    Thank you so much for the information! Can´t wait to buy the vinyl.

    Btw, if you love the Private Eyes album on vinyl,  I really have to recommend the Speakers Corner Records release of the year 2017. Speakers Corner used the master tapes, remastered them in a gentle, brilliant way and kept the whole manufacturing process pure analogue. I have first pressings and a promo copy in NM, but the Speakers Corner version sounds second to none.

    The real kick in the balls would be Jerry Garcia greeting you at the pearly gates with a big grin and, "welcome my son, come on in, the Dead concert is about to begin. They made us the house band up here. Groovy baby"


    Well, if St.Peter provides some class A acid I´ll give it a try.

    But I think I am better off with the house band a few floors south, with Bonzo on the drums.....

    Was I seeing things or did Paul and Gene change their makeup slightly? Is that due to a copyright or licensing thing? 

    Neither! Haven´t you seen current pictures of Gene and Paul lately? Mr. $$ is getting fatter & poor Paul is getting older.

    Btw, I will never accept that the youngsters use the makeup designs of Peter and Ace. They were not able/allowed to create their own masks, so why don´t they use the makeup designs of Mr. Carr & Mr./Mrs. Vincent?

    For anyone still following this thread, thanks for all of the great advice. I used the opportunity to have a conversation with my wife about the Crosley she gave me. (It was fine.) Last week, after much research, I purchased a Pro Ject Debut Carbon Esprit TT (scores points for longest name), with an acrylic platter, auto speed control, and an Ortofon Red cartridge. (I may upgrade to Blue, but right now, the Red suits me.) I paired it with powered speakers from Klipsch, The Fives. The system sounds awesome to me and looks even better. You might be surprised to hear how much sound (rich, warm, full) these small speakers produce. I’ve decided to now search for the Classic Records reissues for all Zep titles. Man, they are expensive! I’m kicking myself for not doing this sooner, when what (I think) went for $30 now goes for $400 and greater! I’ll return with reports on sound quality, should anyone be interested. Thanks again. 

    Bravo, you made a good decision to purchase the Pro-Ject turntable!

    About the vinyl: I bought LZ I - Houses Of The Holy on Classic Records 200 gram round about 2002, the price was $ 45 each. The pressing quality is excellent & they sound incredible, no doubt. Also, I have the 2014 remasters and I think they sound quite good, too. Considering the extreme high prices for the Classic Records I would recommend you to try the 2014 remasters first, guess you won´t be unhappy with them.

    Not to badmouth Maradona, but wasn’t he a coke head, I heard?

    Yes, he ruined his health with coke & booze.

    Honestly, nothing to get excited about- just think of our beloved boys of Led Zeppelin & Black Sabbath. A lot of coke/heroin user & passionate booze hounds among them, eh?

  12. In consideration of the fact that Jimmy is turning 77 soon it is most unlikely he will tour again, and I am fine with that.

    Maybe he remembers his promise to release several  previously unreleased live concerts within the next 10 years. Ouch!!!- sorry, only 8 years left........how time flies, Mr. Page.


  13. 1. 29th Osaka

    2. 23rd Tokyo

    3. 28th Osaka & 24th Tokyo tied for third place

    5. 27th Hiroshima

    My wish list for the 50th anniversary: An official release (complete shows, best of Japan- whatever), finally. The complete 929 SB with Plantations by EV. Any hint for the existence of SBs of 923 & 924. A new uncirculated AUD source of 924 with superior soundquality.

    R.I.P Uriah Heep  keyboard player Ken Hensley. 

    So sad about this. From 1990 to 2005 I saw Uriah Heep about 10 times, all good shows. I was lucky to see just one Ken Hensley concert, this was the best "Uriah Heep gig" I ever saw, by a mile.
