  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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"
  4. There is also a cheapo version available; too bad that they chose the photos of the 923 Budokan gig. NEW LED ZEPPELIN-KUTABARE MOONCHILD ★ 929 OSAKA 1971 JEWEL CASE VERSION WINSTON REMASTERS MONCHILD LABEL NOT LIMITED ED September 29, 1971, Osaka Festival Hall complemented with the latest sound board sound source with a good audience sound source It is the ultimate 929. The sound quality is edited so that there is no big difference between the soundboard and the audience. Among the titles that have recorded this day completely, it is definitely the top sound quality.
  5. I guess you should know about this: NEW Led Zeppelin Kutabare Moonchild Collectors LTD Limited Edition Moonchild Records 3CD LIMITED WITH # September 29, 1971, Osaka Festival Hall complemented with the latest sound board sound source with a good audience sound source It is the ultimate 929. The sound quality is edited so that there is no big difference between the soundboard and the audience. Among the titles that have recorded this day completely, it is definitely the top sound quality.
  6. 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.
  7. I missed the longest song question, always thought Carouselambra takes ages.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. What a lucky man you were. 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.
  12. 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:
  13. 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.
  14. Really looking forward for this release on 7. June: remastered for vinyl, 3 LP set- love those songs!
  15. 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!
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. I have both, and yes, they are both excellent. I prefer the The Great Beast, but that is just my personal taste.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
