  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Not that I know of. I still have to get rid of my Sonic Boom EV box, what a crap!
  4. Ha, the official live albums Mr. Page had announced to be released within the next 8 years??? What a joke!!!! I wouldn´t bet a single penny. I trust in Empress Valley, Graf Zeppelin, Tarantura 2K,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
  5. 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.
  6. Really looking forward, but it might take a little time as EMS & airmail shipping from Japan is currently suspended.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Zeppelin Beatles 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Hiroshima is a stellar but compact concert, no doubt. Then again it is obvious why it is somehow overlooked- the other concerts are simply out of this world. I like Stairway To Heaven, the beautiful acoustic set and the wild Celebration Day. A remastered, lowgen, more natural sounding release of this AUD source would be nice. I am looking forward to the 50th anniversary releases, guess they will be gorgeous.
  12. Delicious, hard to top that one- Lamb Bhuna Gosht is also a favourite of mine. In order to guarantee a proper digestion I highly recommend a rolled help with ZeroZero or a Nepalese. Yes, indian cuisine demands big calibre.
  13. Never heard he said that "Come Taste The Band" wasn´t a DP album, why should he? They decided to carry on with Tommy Bolin and I remember a lot of flattering compliments from Jon for Tommy´s playing, his songwriting and for beeing the man he was. Not until things got out of hand and ugly during their US tour due to the increasing drug antics of both Bolin and Hughes, this is what Jon considered "not like Deep Purple anymore". I think their tours of the US and the UK in 76 had a similar output like the 77 US tour of Led Zeppelin, a few brilliant shows, a lot of average shows & a lot of mediocre gigs. And of course Glenn Hughes had his equal share for the rapide decline.
  14. All in all Deep Purple´s induction to the RARHOF was nothing but a train wreck, sad for Ritchie, sad for Jon Lord´s daughter, and the exclusion of Nick Simper didn´t help either. IMO the main guilty party are the authorities of the RARHOF. One should expect that they are able to choose AND invite ALL relevant musicians themselves. No need to even contact the current manager of the group, things can go terribly wrong with a motherfucker like Bruce Payne. Also, you are still a little confused about MK4: you don´t consider them to be a Deep Purple formation, your quotation of Jon Lord is completely out of context just to undermine your very personal point of view. And to keep things really funny, you would have liked Tommy Bolin to be inducted as a former member of Deep Purple????? Please stick to the facts: Deep Purple from 1968 - 1976, MK1 to MK4 is classical Deep Purple. Whether you like one, two or all of the formations is up to you. I wouldn´t have liked Tommy Bolin to be inducted just as a member of Deep Purple, he has every right to be inducted for HIS complete works & contribution to the world of music. Just my opinion.
  15. I have tried to order from Japan this week but failed. Due to the Corona crisis it is not possible to ship to certain European countries via EMS and airmail.
  16. If you are into late 60s UK-psychedelia, this scream will do: Jason Crest- Black Mass
  17. Anyway, I hope V1,2 comes out well.
  18. Hi William, I guess your work is now available on silvers. They have credited Winston, that ain´t right, is it? Not sure about the label, could be Tarantura.
  19. Thank you for these fantastic photos- you are a lucky man,
  20. Sorry, I am bursting with curiosity: Did your older brother managed to see them in 1977 as well? If so, what are his impressions of 1977 compared to the MSG show of 1975.
  21. I know just what you mean- it will remain unchanged til 923 & 924 pop up.
  22. This footage is absolutely mind-blowing, the audio is excellent, too. It´safe to say that it isn´t the 5th source (First Attack Of The Rising Sun) and I don´t think it is the 7th source (Rock Carnival) either. I hope the audio of the complete concert exists, it could be the best sounding source. This video pops up out of the blue, nearly 49 years after..........unbelievable.
  23. Yes, it is fantastic. Especially Down By The Riverside with great backing vocals by Bonzo. And most of all, for the first time you can hear Jimmy´s wonderful backing v. on the choruses of Tangerine in excellent sound quality. Really love both of them, just another 19 months for the 50th anniversary (complete) release. 924 is another sleeping giant, hope for a SB version one day. Not to forget 923, of course.
