  1. 1971, no doubt among the very best performances of their entire career. The 1972 concerts are a kind of try-out for the new setlist, sometimes the band sounds tired & under-rehearsed. Still, there are some great moments. Luis Rey stigmatised the whole 72 tour as a "great disappointment", which is neither true nor fair, as he simply compared it to the 71 tour, comparing apples & oranges.......
  2. Nope, no surprises. I guess Record Collector does a good job when the subject is LZ first vinyl pressings.
  3. There is an article "Led Zeppelin- their 50 greatest gigs" in the September issue, nothing special. Just ran over the pages, haven´t noticed a LZ essential boot section. I am afraid, it wouldn´t be breathtaking either.
  4. Graveyard, tomorrow at ARENA, Vienna This will be the fourth time, they are getting better every time, especially since the lead guitarist has switched to a Les Paul and discovered the wah pedal.
  5. Thank you very much, sometimes I think my "technical understanding" is that of a man born 100 years ago. But that sounds manageable- Mr.Page, please start this streaming service NOW!
  6. I don´t think the Winston Remaster is among the best versions of this show, whereas the Eat A Peach is truly a good one. But I´d recommend the recently released Wendy Box, which contains 4 different complete sources plus the partial Rubber Dubber source. Two of the Wendy sources surpass the Eat A Peach version easily, at least to my ears. But maybe there is another nominee for the gold medal, as the Graf Zeppelin Label has released their version of Blueberry Hill just a few days ago. Usually 9/10 Graf Zeppelin relases are blessed with awesome sound.........
  7. Same here, i.e. the Black Crowes offer SB-recordings on CD or flac/mp3 downloads for reasonable price. Anyway, the NON downloadable idea will fail immediately. I guess bootleg companies will sell the shows on silver about 14 days after the their initial streaming.
  8. Many thanks to Chillumpuffer & Chef Free for bringing some light into the dark, sounds good to me.
  9. Haha, live taping right in the living room, with one big advantage: we know when to flip the tape. Goddamn, need to connect the laptop with my amplifier somehow......... The Stones have their live archive releases, why can´t LZ do a proper job as well?
  10. I guess this will make a lot of fans happy. On the other hand, does this mean there will be no physical releases (CD & Vinyl)??? For me this would be a HUGE letdown. I simply can`t enjoy music via my laptop and those shitty sounding speakers. Also, I can´t connect my laptop with my hifi system, which may be a little old but very good, no optical or digital input available. God, I hope they will release CDs & vinyl sets. If not, there is hope that the live-stream will be bootlegged. NON DOWNLOADABLE- I don´t think they get away with that nowadays......
  11. www.oldbuckeye.com/prox/ That was a great fanzine, I have got a few issues.
  12. Wait, let me see: European artists and their performances in Europe, or their perfomances anywhere in the world? Or, e.g. would a hoarder be able to sell a LZ tape of an 69 US concert to an european label? Where is the champagne!?
  13. Don`t panic- one of the best known LZ silver traders, situated in Tokyo, has announced following on 31.8.: "New Mystery Title Coming Soon" Everything is going to be alright.
  14. “There’ll be Led Zeppelin product coming out, for sure, that people haven’t heard,” Page said, “because I’m working on that. Next year will be the fiftieth year so there’s all manner of surprises coming out.” Haha, it took me 10 months to realise this is nothing but a bloody joke! Not to forget "that there will be a number of releases within the next 10 (!!!!!!!) years" For sure, haha.................
  15. Great post! Thanks for your detective work. Maybe I can contribute a little hint about the running time of the first 929 reel: Unfortunately, there is no cut after Black Dog from the 928 SB snippet, the tape runs without a cut while RP is introducing D&C, the fade out starts with the very first notes of D&C. So most likely the first reel ends during D&C. But let us hope the best- man, I am on the verge of a nervous breakdown! Finally, you are damn right, 929 will be the best 50th anniversary release by far.
  16. Haha, great! Just in case they are selling 929 & 928 combined in one deluxe set, I think I´d have to sell some things immediately. My Rickenbacker bass which I haven´t touched once in the last ten years, my RP Dreamland on vinyl (played once)................
  17. Hi, not too long, I think it took them just 3-4 weeks to release their version of Deus Ex Machina. Again, 3 weeks later EV released their "budget" version. Since I am not the biggest fan of their 75 concerts in general, it was no problem to wait 8 weeks, and $ 100 for the EV jewel case is ok. But of course, the upcoming 929 release is something completely different. I don´t think I can wait a single day, can you?
  18. Finished season 1 a few months ago, a brilliant series, there will be a sequel. If you are interested in the subject, I highly recommend the netflix series The Alienist. More or less about the very beginning of criminal analytic psychology, story is situated in the late 19th century in New York.
  19. R. Cole was their tour manager right from the start, he managed all the tours, the 77 US tour was his last tour with the band.
  20. Just back from vacation- man, I have been waiting to read this announcement for more than 20 years! It depends on your patience, I have bought the EV jewel case release of the 75 Seattle show, about three weeks after the Eelgrass release, for $ 100,-. Agreed, come to think of it, 929 would be the one to take to the island.
  21. I have the small box, which contains the 7/28 and 7/29 Soundboards. IMHO I am not quite convinced, I think there are better sounding 73 SBs, but that is a matter of individual taste.
  22. 1. August - Tommy Bolins´ Birthday! Took a 6 hour musical journey to celebrate this great man: Zephyr, James Gang, Ebbets Field 74 & 76, some Spectrum & Mind Transplant, finally Come Taste The Band & various Deep Purple Mk4 live recordings. Page & Bolin, nuff said.
  23. LA Forum, 31. May 73, Bonzo´s Birthday Party, audience recording: During the guitar intro of OTHAFA, about 30 to 40 seconds into the song, the taper or a guy next to the recorders mic yells "MY BOOT!!!" for whatever reason.
  24. Thank You was only played on the last night, so Jimmy wasn´t able to choose the best out of 3, or "frankenstein" the best pieces of three nights to create one super version. I am afraid, he simply wasn´t satisfied with the version of the 29th. And YES, I think he should release it, as he should release the original, intact NQ!
  25. Had the same problem with the envelope, I guess no one is able to get the photographs out without damaging it. The flyer is really beautiful, I wish they had more stuff like that with their boxes. I have managed to listen to the 2.,3.,4. & 5. October so far, as you said, it is worth every penny.
