    @Robert, I'm afraid William is right,  that photo depicting Plant in blue open shirt and Bonzo shows them playing Friends, so 929 it is. 

    Haha, yes, of course William is right. I was much too focused on Jimmy´s clothes, couldn´t see the forest for the trees.

    Many thanks to pluribus, William Austin and sam webmaster for their contribution to solve the mystery.

    By the way, are we the only three punters here at the forum who acquired the Live 71-72 Japan book?

    Sure, what do you expect? New book: 3 to 5 folks. New boot: 3 to 10 folks.........an endangered species, indeed.

    DHL delivered the Live Tour in Japan 71-72 book today (ordered from amazon Jp, shipped on 30 sept.!!!!, economy air mail).

    What to say?..the 'usual suspects' are included. The Teriyaki and sushi meal, the band visiting Hiroshima, ceremony at town hall, press conference and rehearsal plus in concert stuff...all filed chronologically . Strangely enough the pub jam session is not included (and no 929 shots either:-( Thankfully there's a lot more to enjoy, however most concert pics from 71 are severely under exposed, blurred and not always sharp. A pleasant surprise are the 1972 pictures. Superior to most 71 pictures...and IMHO more appealing. The text? Japanese only but that was to be expected. Disappointed?  no, but be sure to set your expectations not too high. Kinda visual warts and all documentary. Not an award winning coffee table photo book.

    Hi Eric, got my copy last friday, thanks again for your guidance.

    Agreed, more pro shots would have been nice, but on the whole I really like this book. I have noticed there is no 924 concert photo either. I always have tried to distinguish the different 71 photos/dates via Jimmy´s clothes.

     No doubt about 923: Jimmy wears the dark T-shirt with the nice sun image (purchased in Montreux, I guess) and the brown suit jacket for the first songs.

    924: The dark blue T-shirt with the red lines at neck & sleeve ends. 

    927: Small stage, white shirt with small knitted pullunder (indeed very small, could have been a present for his 15th birthday).

    928: Revelation, thanks to this new book-   almost same clothes as in Hiroshima, but this time a white shirt with very thin blue lines. Teeny pullunder in action once again!

    929, still a mistery to me: I think most of the bootleg releases (including the recent 929 SB) got it wrong, presenting photos of the actual 924 Budokan gig, with Jimy wearing the blue T-shirt with red lines. Some boots have photos with Jimmy wearing a red shirt, but I think they are from Hampton or the Berkeley gigs. In my opinion he wore the brown suit trousers and a bright shirt with much thinner fabric than the shirts he wore 927 & 928. Also, I think Robert wears a sun image T-shirt, same as Jimmy on 923.

    What do you think?

    Was this a recent post?  A new master SBD of Bonzo's Bday?? Surely not from the second night at the Forum?? 

    Unfortunately not Bonzo´s Birthday nor the second night June 3, I misread that too- it is 1975, the new master SBD of LA Forum 1975 = The Night Stalker

    This flyer is enclosed to the Pareidolia Paradigm Box.

    Wishing for more, Lets hope EV releases the rest of Sept 28 to coincide with it as well . . . most likely next year on its anniversary if the rest does exist. 

    Fingers crossed, but I don´t think it will happen in 2019, normally there are prior announcements about two months before the release.

    Maybe next year, but dead certain in 2021 to the 50 anniversary. 

    Anyway, I am prepared for the complete 928 & the rest of 929. Who´s to say that there aren´t SBs for 923, 924 & 927 as well?

     


  5.  Let´s talk about this upcoming 929 Osaka AUD Master release.

    The best AUD version that I know so far is still medoicre compared to the best AUD sources of 923. The 929 AUD is distant, unbalanced & Robert´s voice suffers from heavy echo- even the master tape wouldn´t solve these problems.

    Maybe EV uses the so-called "Mr. Peach recording", which has been released by Tarantura 2K recently? (which I haven´t heard so far)

    Any thoughts?

    Landover 2/10/75

    Ft. Worth 3/3/75

    Houston 3/4/75

    Dallas 3/5/75

    Vancouver 3/20/75

    Okay, it's five shows. I know that Empress Valley has released all of these but for someone on a budget, they're not really affordable. 

     

    Deep Throat budget release from 2015:

    Memories; I was deaf for a week... Tommy was pretty wasted, but got off some good runs when he was able, Glenn Hughes was fine as was the rest of the band - good show, not great, and very Zeppelin-esque in that two great players (Page & Bolin) could make or break a show. Coverdale was strong as always.

    Opening act was Nazareth, who were coming off the Love hurts release, they played real well, very well in fact, but maybe 30 minutes, 35 tops.

    Traveled to radio city by car in a driving snowstorm, was a great night!! Any night hearing good bands play loud and live is a great night.

    Thanks for your reply. Did you attend a concert of the Tommy Bolin band in 1976? I know he played in NY in May/June and later in the fall of 1976.

    There is a new EV Paper Case re-release of the Snowblind 3/20/75 show for about $ 65.

    Landover 2/10/75 is available on the TCOLZ label for about $ 50. I know these prices are higher than the average Moonchild release, but maybe it helps.

    Also, EV is not second to none- check out the Graf Zeppelin and Eat A Peach/Golden Eggs releases, they have excellent sound quality for about $ 50 to $ 65.

    2nd row Deep Purple @Radio City(Tommy Bolin tour)

    Wow- any memories? Was it one of the few US gigs where Tommy & Glenn were ok an played fine?

    Jimmy Page & Tommy Bolin always have been my favourite guitarists.

     I won’t lie, Page had some moves in there that made me think some naughty things, most notably during IMTOD.

    Interesting, my ex-girlfriends and female friends mostly  were/are atrracted to Jimmy Page. They think the other members are handsome for sure, but Jimmy......

    By the way, I also have my special moments during IMTOD, every time Robert gets to the "Oh my Jesus" & "Please Lord" part, I think of leaving the room, mumbling " SHUT UP. Pleeeeeeeease"

    I was listening to Led Zeppelin 1 on vinyl and it seemed to me that the highs and lows were missing.  It sounded like it was all coming from a tiny closet.  What’s going on?

    Sudden hearing loss?


  12. There is also a cheapo version available; too bad that they chose the photos of the 923 Budokan gig.

    Yes. I also have Moonchild's Winston Remasters of Blueberry Hill, For Badgeholders Only, and others. I want my bootlegs in physical form...either vinyl or cds...as that is how I prefer to listen to them. I don't want or need a bunch of computer files taking up space and possibly spreading viruses.

    I am somewhat surprised by the variations in soundquality of these Moonchild Winston Remasters. Some of them are very good, like the above mentioned Good Night Vienna, For Badgeholders Only, LTTE.....

    Others, such as Seattle Supersonic 73, Berdu 72, Blueberry Hill and Let´s Get Together RAH70, are by no means of the best quality.

    Astounding.


  15. Brilliant idea, since this tour gets a lot of bashing. Luis Rey didn´t like it, usually fans are moaning about Robert´s voice going down, many consider this tour as a mere stepping stone to 1973.

    Check these:

    Rain Song 10/2 - beautiful version, Robert is doing fine, no major issues

    Whole Lotta Love 10/4 - a very strong rendition with a blistering medley, worth to compare with the 10/9 version

    Stairway To Heaven 10/10 - excellent!

    Dancing Days 10/4 - surprise, a disaster in 73, but not in Japan

    Stand By Me 10/9 - you got to take this on board

    Can´t help you with the rest, haven´t heard them recently. For the sources I´d recommend The Overture box by EV.

    Please let us know about the sound quality in the non soundboard discs as compared to previous releases of the Millard recordings.  They were advertised as a big upgrade.  Thanks.

    What’s the audience source like for the LA gigs? Is it an upgrade on previous releases? Very curious. Hope you’re enjoying it. 

    Have to admit I was sceptical when I first heard about the new EV box. Sceptical, for various reasons: I already have the Deep Throat box, I am not the biggest fan of their 1975 concerts & my interest in a new 75 SB is sub-zero. It took some emails with a trusty mate who should know, to change my mind. Received the beautiful box on Friday, haven´t heard all the discs yet, but I have to say: They are fantastic! Compared to Deep Throat they are a huge upgrade. The separation of the instruments is excellent, one is able to hear more details. Overall, this sound floors you, like you are in the tenth row, right there. EV did a marvellous job with these Millard 1st gen tapes.

    The new SB? Well, just another 75 SB with soundquality similar to Deus Ex Machina/Seattle March 21.- pale in comparison to the new AUD release.


  17. 17 hours ago, JohnOsbourne said:

    Is it certain that this SB disc is entirely from the 24th?  The version of TU appears on Deep Throat II (i.e. the 25th) on the CDs I have (unless they're mislabeled?).

    I think TU is from the 24th: Around 1:25 minutes into the song, after the fourth verse "Specialist tradition, Mama let me feast my eyes" there is a significant guitar flub. This flub is present on all versions I have: Deep Throat remastered, The Face On Mars of the new Pareidolia Paradigm Box & the new SB Night Stalker version.

    I was at Cal Jam. I was sixteen. I thought both Sabbath and Purple were great. That MK III lineup is my favorite. I left during ELP. 

    What a lucky man you were.

    7 hours ago, Stryder1978 said:

    Agree....the Cal Jam performance of "Burn" is one of the greatest rock moments of all time (IMHO).  And I'd take Deep Purple Mark III over any prog band any day!

    Any fan of the MK III lineup should get a copy of "Graz !975". It was one of their last concerts, April 1975, just before Mr. Blackmore left. You won´t find better versions of Burn & Stormbringer.

    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:
