    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

    Give us a chance, what exact second/time mark? Your link provides the whole show.

    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.

  10. 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.

    Which ones? I've always found their masters to be pretty flat on the EQ.

    The Great Beast 666 (Montreux 70), the  Geisha Box (929 SB) & Deus Ex Machina (Seattle 75 SB) comes to mind. These releases are "blessed" with an exceptionally strong bass, especially the very low frequencies. Got to take care with the volume, as these boots are certainly not neighbor-friendly. The bass level of the Bath T2K is nowhere near to the level of the EV boots mentioned.

    I see you've decided to switch accounts again to defend your beloved T2K (or rather, your income stream).

    Switch accounts, income stream??? What are you talking about?

    I am not the "defender" or spokesman of any bootleg label, nor a bootleg trader. 

    I was just responding to pluribus` opinion about the bass level, as I have not any trouble listening to this CD without altered, equalized signal.

    Got it?

    It wasn’t the master. That’s a fact, proven by spectral analysis matching it to the 2nd gen that came out in 2009, just with the bass frequencies ridiculously cranked up.

    I doubt that it will be any good. I had hopes that they had changed their ways with releasing legitimate releases, but the Bath 1970 boxset turned out to not really be from the master tape after all. And the “Enigma” mastering sounded like they just turned the bass up as high as it would go. The low gen Bath source sounds much better.

    I am happy with the T2K Bath boxset, it has far better sound quality compared to older/different titles I know. Sorry, I am not able to relate to your critic about the "ridiculousy cranked up" bass frequencies. Hearing this release on my stereo system I simply can´t detect any trouble with the level of the low end. Funny, as to my ears the main sound problem are the guitar and the voice, sometimes suffering heavy distortion and overdriven sound. But this is not due to bad mastering, or the fault of any bootleg label, this is just he nature of the original tapes. The band must had advised their soundman to crank it up to eleven, no matter how the soundquality suffered. By the way, I do have boots with a critically high bass level, these are Empress Valley releases.

    It’s fine. Not as clean as the original source, but it’s great to finally get the complete show.

    And now Empress Valley, Lighthouse, and Graf Zeppelin have more material to crank out new releases.

    Don´t miss to check the upcoming Tarantura2K "The Band That Beat The Beatles" box. It contains both original and new source, mastered by their new audio wizard (ENIGMA).

    Graf Zeppelin´s "Detroit Rock City" was a miss due to the shrill sound.

    Has there been an upgrade for this show since it was last discussed?

    Not that I know of. I still have to get rid of my Sonic Boom EV box, what a crap!

    I ordered "The Starship" box!!  😄🤘

    Yes, there´s no time to lose. Unfortunately, I have to be patient as my source for Tarantura boots orders from Japan and there is currently no EMS available.

    I prefer the "Starship" cover over the other version, too. IMO version "A" shows rather a barrage balloon than a Zeppelin.

    I wonder how long it will take til you receive your box- fingers crossed.

    On "CD Museum Pb" Twitter: a new Led Zeppelin box by the end of April. Knowing CdMuseum sells Tarantura (and related) stuff, this is probably a new Tarantura2000 box. Mastered by the mysterious "Enigma" ??

    And what concert it will be?

    I believe Its a new remaster of Detroit 1973, the first night, w/ two separate sources, 6cd

    Really looking forward, but it might take a little time as EMS & airmail shipping from Japan is currently suspended.

    So this picture sleeve has been around a long while but I guess shows the lighting from this show was typical for the time? Don't think the photo's from the same show.

    Led Zeppelin Black Dog 7" vinyl single (7 inch record) Japanese ZEP07BL45352

    This sleeve is from the Black Dog 928 SB release in 2016. It was the first song available of a 71 Japan SB and was a bonus CD of the Rock Carnival EV box set, which contained the 7th & 5th (the best) Aud sources for 923. The picture shows the band onstage Osaka Festival Hall, 28th Sept. 1971.

    Jimmy was a mess but in retrospect and with more info about Page's addictions in general, I doubt he would have died from an OD unless his habits became worse. Jimmy snorted H, he did not shoot it and I believe Jimmy's poor playing at some shows was more due to alcohol than H but again, not sure.

    The mix of heroin & alcohol is very dangerous, the narcotic effects on the central nervous system are boosted and can  easily lead to fatal respiratory paralysis, no matter H is snorted or shooted.

    A miracle that Page and Bonham had survived the 1977 US tour, beside a few cases of "food poisoning" (ODs) here and there.

  20. Zeppelin


    Stones 64-74

    I choose the Stones over Pink Floyd (Piper - Meddle) and The Doors (the first three LPs only).

    If Deep Purple (68-76) were on the list, I would kick out the Stones.

    It’s funny you mention that. The Hiroshima show is just as long (if not longer) than the 1st night in Tokyo. 

    Yes, you are right about the length. There is a gap in my memory, as I listen to this show about every two years, whereas 923, 928 & 929 are on constant rotation. On rare occasions (due to the bad soundquality of the existing Aud sources) I give 924 a spin, nevertheless I think it is one of the best of this fab tour.
