    Vocals are the toughest instrument of all.  Anyone else can have a bad night and it isn't so noticeable ... at least not as noticeable as a shot voice.  Stinking cold.  Bronchitis.  The flu.  Unless it's at the passing-out point, anyone but the singer can usually tough it out for a show.  Even at Jimmy's worst, he could usually grind out a performance.  On top of this, a singer, when on a long tour, has to protect the vocals chords, knowing there about 30 shows ahead of him.  You might feel great one night, get a little too enthusiastic, and find out the next morning when you wake up that your voice is shot and needs 3 days to get back in shape.  Too bad, you've got a big show before then and to cancel it will piss of the fans and cost a fortune in refunds.   

    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!

    it’s not a remaster of the Millard tapes. They clearly state it is a sbd. As you know full wel

    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.


  3. 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

    Question about Bowie's 1971 release - The Man Who Sold The World.

    I'm a regular visitor and member of Discogs and saw that a UK version of this LP sold in March 2019 for $1,493.

    The notes for this release say "The album's original UK version, which arrived in British stores five months after the American release. Features the controversial dress cover." 

    What’s the controversy? He wore a dress? I know there are a couple of different covers for this release. Is the dress cover really worth a months rent/mortgage?

    I like Bowie, but am not a superfan. Hopefully someone can educate me on the rarity of this release.   Thanks!

    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.

    So are they really not gonna release the rest of it?

    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.

    The sound quality might indeed bet better on the EU version, but both the EU and North American versions are 180 gram.

    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. 


  7. Alarm!

    It´s getting serious, at last. Just saw this one:

    Led Zeppelin Live at Fillmore West in San Francisco 24th of April 1969 LP

    Coming April 2019 pre-order your copy today! Orders with both pre-order and in stock items will have all in stock items shipped immediately! 

    Live Recordings On Vinyl LP!

    The April 24th, Fillmore West concert was the debut date of the Zeppelin's second US tour when the British band definitely conquered the American audience with their powerful and yet sensual Rock-Blues sound. The tour was a massive success thanks to the band's top form and inspiration and an extremely reactive audience. That palpable energy you can easily get through these historical recordings. 

    Features:
    • Vinyl LP

    Selections:
    Side A: 

    1. White Summer
    2. Babe I’m Gonna Leave You
    3. Killing Floor 
    Side B: 
    1. As Long As I Have You

    I think that if there were actual issues between band members, it was dealt with on an intermediary basis via Grant, with the best known example in the early days where Jimmy got Bonzo to not play so loud.

    If I remember correctly Bonzo´s loudness wasn´t the problem. Young John Henry showed some nerves and simply overplayed everything, too many fills, breaks & rolls- simply too much.

    Are they going to dribble the songs out like they did with 9/29/71?

    Oh no, if it is going to be a January 75 SB,  things will be completely different.

    Due to Mr. Plant´s outstanding vocal artistry the new SB will not only sell for just half of the usual price, furthermore,  buyers will be rewarded with an additional SB (of their choice) for free.

    Those lucky devils who are able to send in their original ticket stub of any January 75 date, will be provided with 3 additional SBs- a kind of late compensation...........

    in pick 1 was that the average amp set up for them onstage. If so how on earth did they get the massive sound.

    You can´t see any amp or speaker cabinet in this picture, but they got plenty of them in 1973.

    I think you mean JPJ´s mellotron and the keys, clear to see in this picture:

    This would make a nice cover for a box set.

    Indeed, superdeluxe box treatment required.

    But I am afraid we have to wait for an EV box release, probably September 2021 to the 50th anniversary.


  12. From the companion book of the LZ II super deluxe box:

    Description of  the Thank You mastertape:  audio track nr. 6: backing vocals 1, audio track nr .7: lead vocals & audio track nr. 8: backing vocals 2

    This doesn´t necessarily mean that both Pagey & Bonzo did the backing vocals, most likely Robert did one of the backing vocals.

    To my ears it is Jimmy.

    Could have sworn it was later, twenty three months then. Rick is closer than me.. :hidinginwall:

    The last 2 weeks I have listened  from 12..-14 Feb. 75 (RP: our new record will be released next week) to the LA run 24.-27. March 75 (RP: Have you got your copy of PG yet?)

    Conclusion: I prefer the NY gigs by a mile & I badly need a overdose of some 70 - 71 boots.

    Live and Led Live ~ Flying Disc label

    New Orleans '73

    One of my favorites of the 73 US tour. I have played my Drag Queen Of New Orleans by Wendy last week. 

    No Quarter is great, though the main guitar riff is played without wahwah. The drumming on Dazed & Confused is remarkably hard & daring.

    Robert stated early last year that there was nothing left in the Zep vault. I'm starting to realize that he actually tells it like it is and Jimmy is just playing bullshit marketing games. 

    MOJO Nr. 301, December 2018, LZ 50th anniversary special, Robert "recalls":

                                               MOJO: Did listening back to the performances from the LA Forum and the Long Beach Arena on How The West Was Won bring back any fond memories?

                                               RP: It´s not the Bonzo´s Birthday party one, is it? When Keith Moon was playing with us?

    He couldn´t care less about past or possible future releases. I doubt he knows what is left in the LZ vault.

    The remaster series & all future releases are totally in the hands of Jimmy. If only he would take the multitrack & soundboard tapes to Abbey Road soon.

    I'm glad this knob isn't a thing in America. I'd rather have Justin Bieber.

    Hold on, Robbie Williams will entertain Las Vegas from March to July 2019.

    I think he should stay there, no Tower House to ruin & the mob knows how to handle such a sweety.
