    Just a quick hello to everyone from Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK. I hope everyone is well in these strange times. 

    My greatest love is The Beatles, but Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones and many others are right up there with them.

    I look forward to posting here.

    All the very best

    Sgt Pepper.

    Welcome Sgt Pepper! What a formidable guy this General Babington was.

    A few quick suggestions off the top of my head:










    No doubt. all good recommendations for 72 shows with VG - EX AUD recordings. Except one show: I haven´t found a decent sounding boot of the 6/22 San Bernardino show yet. I had the Winston Remaster and an EV release, both with terrible sound. I really don´t understand why this source is rated VG, the source for the 9/19/70 MSG evening show is rated Good to VG and the boots are so much better sounding than the Berdu boots. Am I missing something?

    Jimmy needs to get together with John, Jason and a singer of their liking, and record an album, they can call it whatever they like.

    The wonderful talents of Mr. Glenn Hughes would fit perfectly, and he even knows Jason Bonham so well. Although, I am not sure if I`d be happy with Jason on the drums. 

    Anyway- Wake up, it is over, nothing will happen.

  4. No way, Jimmy would only like to talk about live recordings which he gave his blessing for an official release. 

    If your name is Ross Halfin & you share private moments with Jimmy near the open fire, maybe then you listen to & discuss the Japan 1971 recordings........ 

    Agree with all of you, Jonesy would be the right man.

    I saw "Kashmir" performed nine times and every single damn time Plant switched the "Talk and song" and "Oh Father of the Four Winds" verses from the order it is on the studio version. I have listened to nearly every Led Zeppelin bootleg from 1975 to 1980 and every Kashmir has the same lyric switch.

    Not a major problem to me, I can live with that lyric switch. A huge disaster is the mutilation of the OTHAFA verses from 1973 onwards, that makes me mad.

    If there was a choice, I would much rather see an official  release of Japan 1971, not that a complete RAH wouldn't be nice.

    I hear you, Jimmy really should give these Japan tapes a "state of the art treatment" at Abbey Road studios. And yes, a complete RAH would be fantastic.  They were incredibly good in 70 & 71, unsurpassed.

    Seattle 1973. I'm "revisiting" this show after mostly  passing it by it for a couple decades. Fact is, when I got the "V 1/2" Dynamite Studios silvers back 25 years ago (at least), I found the soundboard to be so damn dry and dusty that  I wasn't getting any "vibes" from it, as Robert would say. And at the same time I was probably totally cranking "Three Days After" 73/06-03 L.A.from Silver Rarities which despite the significant tape damage was, and still is, one of my favorite '73 recordings. Anyway, the Winston Remaster  of Seattle '73 is my new go-to and it's great. I hear the Graf Zeppelin version is amazing too, so I hope to find it. Anyone have suggestions for other versions? Thanks.

    The Winston Remaster & the Eat A Peach are both fine, but the Graf Zeppelin version is the one you should get. Simply the best, by a mile.

    Jimmy was a brave man to wear those pants. And with those red-socks!!! 🤣 But in honesty, I must admit that I had bit similar pants back in 1996 😂 But I didn't look that cool...


    7 hours ago, JTM said:

    Red socks were de rigueur  back in 72, worn with bell bottom flares that were half way up yer ankle. Thank fk there are no photos, they must have looked ridiculous.

    Nothing wrong with these pants, he wore them (or similar) at the fantastic Montreux show in 1970. The pants he had for the Munich show one day later were excellent, too.

    But maybe you like his Dragon suits better? Or what about his tasteful 1980 outfits, they were beyond words.........

    To each his own.

    Don't forget, the Rolling Stones have finally officially released many good shows from the Mick Taylor era.

    There is "Get Yer Ya-Yas Out" of course...1969 Madison Square Garden. There is "Ladies & Gentlemen...the Rolling Stones" (Ft. Worth June 1972). "Live at the Marquee" (1971 Marquee Club), "Live at Leeds" (1971 Leeds University...same place the Who recorded their album the same year), and you can even get "Brussels Affair" from the Rolling Stones website.

    "Live At Leeds" is with Ron Wood from 1982. You could get "Brussels Affair" from the Stones website back in 2011. Nowadays you can get a NM copy from $300 (just Vinyl and CDs) up to $600 for a complete box on Discogs, Mick Jagger signed boxes  $1000 upwards.

    Keep in mind that the longer shows don't automatically = better shows. For some of the ones listed, like Seattle 7/17/77, Earls Court 5/23-25/75, and LA 3/27/75, 6/25/77, and 6/27/77...none of those would be considered their "Best" show of those tours. Oftentimes, what pushed the length of the show was something like Bonham going 10 minutes longer on his drum solo, or a few additional minutes from an extra bit of banter or a guitar solo that went a few bars longer. Or they played a single standard encore vs not playing any. It's not like Osaka 9/29/71 or Seattle 6/19/72, where the band played EVERY song longer, and did extra encores.  In the case of 7/17/77, that's not a good show by any stretch. Both 3/27/75 and 6/27/77 are so long because Page drew everything out, for the final nights at the venue those years, but to little actual effect.

    Stand-outs for the "long shows" are: 

    LA 6/22/77, 6/23/77

    Long Beach 3/12/75

    Seattle 3/21/75

    Memphis 4/17/70

    Osaka 9/28-29/71

    Seattle 6/19/72

    Bravo, excellent statement!

    I know no details beyond Freezer taping it. I have heard his '71 Allman Brothers recordings, which are pretty much the usual Freezer standard (as in excellent stereo sound etc), so if the '71 NOLA Zep show sounds anything like those...it's his '77 Baton Rouge recording that I'm holding out for- based on his other tapes from that era that fucking thing is probably on par with Millard's recordings.

    Thanks, Nutrocker. I hope these shows will see the light of day somehow, someday.

    opportunity to hear Freezer's Baton Rouge '77 and NOLA '71

    A hoarded tape of the New Orleans show on 8.29.1971? Do you know some details? AUD, SB, sound quality or length of the recording?

    Just imagine what Robert had to do to even be heard onstage, fighting Bonzo the loudest drummer of all time, Marshall stacks, all with basically non existent or primitive monitor systems.  You can only scream so much before your vocal chords will throw in the towel.

    Roberts early Zep era performances are truly Super Human, there’s no way it could last. He left his voice on the stage for sure. 

    Totally agreed. Just a personal remark: IMHO the problem was home-made to a certain degree, as Jimmy wanted the band playing that loud. Why did they have to play "10 times as loud as anybody else"??? A little volume reduction might have saved Robert´s chords, the audience would have had a far better sound, while still beeing as loud as contemporary bands.

    Taking this German squad to win the 930 am est match.  Huge for me.  Can win the streak contest if this damn team wins for me.  Cant pronounce it or spell it. They are playing some Berlin team

    Borussia Mönchengladbach vs Union Berlin?

    Congrats, Mönchengladbach won 4 :1

    I have 'Made In Japan: 25th anniversary', 'Live In Japan' (3CDs). But anyway, I'm looking forward to this:


    Current price, since every damn day the price increases: US$ 250 approx. :angry:


    Yes, I have this 3 CD box and also the 9 LP Box from 2014.

    Honestly, I can´t imagine Jimmy Page will release anything from Japan 1971, though I wish he would.

    Let us wait for the complete 929 SB for the 50 anniversary, and any sign(like the 928 Black Dog single) from EV that SBs of 923 & 924 do exist, would be a godsend.

  18. I would like to see something like Deep Purple´s Made In Japan, the best compiled from all recorded shows, but each song untouched and as it was played. I put my trust in Empress Valley, and yes, a single CD, released in the fall of 2020, with a song of 923 or 924 soundboard would be fantastic.
