    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.

  10. 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.


  12. 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.

    Lamb Rogan Josh - hot and spicy. Naan breads to mop up the curry

    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.

    Why? It's true that Jon Lord has said that 'Come Taste The Band' is a fantastic album, but not by Deep Purple. He also said he should have left the band with Ritchie in '75. Why is this out of context?

    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.

    He was inducted into the RARHOF, simply didn't attend the ceremony.

    Ritchie's pre-ceremony message:

    Ritchie was honored by the offer of induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He was discussing the possibility of attending, until we received correspondence from the President of the Rock Hall of Fame, who said that Bruce Payne, management for the current Deep Purple Touring Band, had said "No"..........!!!!!"
    Therefore Ritchie will not be attending the ceremony. He sincerely thanks all the fans that voted for him for their support.

    I also leave the words of David Coverdale that I posted before:

    "It was really ugly what happened.

    I heard how the manager did everything he could to stop Glenn Hughes and me from giving a speech. Jon Lord's daughter wasn't there, which surprised us. But she refused to go when it was announced that Ritchie Blackmore was not allowed to attend, it was a mockery... None of them would be there if it wasn't for Ritchie".

    All the members of the MKI, MKII, and MKIII formations were inducted, except Nick Simper, without explanation, an embarrassment, I can't understand.

    Joe Lynn Turner should be inducted as well. And although I don't consider MKIV to be a Deep Purple formation (said by Jon Lord himself), I'd have liked Tommy Bolin to be inducted, but these are personal appreciations.


    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.

    Well I don’t know... the description doesn’t match my compilation. I have way more than just Black Dog from the 28th, and Moby Dick is the complete Ledsox merge. 

    If they did use mine, joke’s on them, because I’m already working on some updates and may have a v1.2 released soon. 

    Anyway, I hope V1,2 comes out well.

    If anyone else wants the download link, send me a PM. 

    Specify MP3 or FLAC when you do.

    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.750081986_lz929sbmerge.thumb.jpg.b87fab825cea7c60cdb3940d5578c971.jpg

    Still can't believe I was this close to seeing them at MSG that year then my parents brought the hammer down and decided I was too young at 15 to go to "The City" with my older brother and his friends for a rock concert.  So I  had  to  two more years to see them.  I wonder what my impressions of 1977 would have been if I had seen them in 1975.

    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.
