  1. This is rather "things you have NOT heard from the audience": 10/10/72 Kyoto, last gig of their 72 Japan tour After a 19 minutes long Dazed & Confused a puzzled Robert Plant says "Man sleeping in the front row, will you please stand up"
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Happy Birthday Jimmy Page! Just saw the complete setlist of Royal Albert Hall 1970 on JimmyPage.com, including SIHBLY & TY. A vinyl release would be a gift from heaven.
  5. On CD I´d recommend Graf Zeppelin´s Going To California. It contains both nights in Berkeley, September 13 & 14 in excellent quality. On vinyl you can try the non label release Berkeley Daze 2nd Night from 2017. It is not that expensive & has awesome sound.
  6. Hi Neil, congrats in advance to your birthday-christmas present. Got my GZ BH yesterday, it is amazingly good. No doubt, to my ears the definite version of source 3 & BH in general. Instruments are perfectly balanced, voice & guitar never sounded that good. Also, drums and bass are much clearer, in fact the bass notes can be heard in detail like never before, and yes, it has an extraordinary punch in the lower frequencies. By the way, the 3rd CD with rubber dubber- source two is excellent too. So, when your family leaves home for visiting remote relatives, you know what to do.
  7. These photos were shot during their 7th US tour in August 1971, Hyatt House in LA. You can identify the era by their haircuts/lenght & beards/no beards and Bonzo`s weight(lol). Jimmy indeed looked very similar in August 71 and September 70. They even confused it on Jimmy Page.com & in the Jimmy Page book, by dating Forum 70 photos as Forum 71 photos. But they got it right on the LZ.com timeline. By August 71 JP´s hair and beard is a tad longer, JPJ´s hair is noticeable shorter, RP has no beard, and Bonzo has slightly(!) overweight.(compared to Sept. 70)
  8. 97 years old Much better, around my 100th birthday I will visit Japan from 23.Sept. to 29 Sept. 2071, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of their first Japan tour. After this I´ll join the macaque-snow-monkeys in their hot springs, for the rest of my days..................
  9. Led Zeppelin VS Deep Purple- comparisons like this are not my cup of tea. I love both of them, it is as simple as that. And yes, Made in Japan is brilliant, no overdubs & no frankenstein-studio-wizardry. Mr. Page, example given.
  10. No soundboards so far, but a lot of very good audience recordings. This has been discussed many times, try the search function using "best audience recordings 1972" (or similar) and you get to the old threads.
  11. I have no idea. It is stereo, don´t know if only one source or different sources has been used.
  12. I have ordered my copy of "A Sweeter Blueberry" on Golden Eggs (the current label name of the Godfather/Eat A Peach people) yesterday on ebay, just € 23 excl. shipping. You have to order them very quickly after the initial release date, shortly after the price is increasing rapidly + they are really hart to find.
  13. Yes, a stunning in depth analysis- Hats off to Eddie Edwards. Though I naturally dislike the concept of an edited, patched Live Album, I do understand Pages´ motivation for "creating" TSRTS due to Plant´s voice problems & the misery with fixing audio & video for the film. But HTEWW is a different pair of shoes: vvv As part of a Life Archive Series I would gladly take all four (23.,24., 28. & 29.9) in a second. A possible more realistic option would be just one release, with the "best" versions picked from the four nights. But of course without any editing or patching! Jesus, there is nothing to be ashamed of, just some of the greatest concerts they have played ever. But honestly, I doubt that there will be any official release. I pin my hopes entirely on the bootleg producers.
  14. No doubt about it, the Winston Remaster of 929 is a very good one. But maybe the Matrix-Wizards should try to fuse Wendy´s Live In Japan 929 (the 2016 version) with the new soundboard, this could lead to a far better matrix.
  15. Agreed, Bonzo´s little accident plus Robert losing power & pitch would exclude 929´s STH from an official release. No disaster, as Jimmy could choose from four fantastic concerts. But the very thought of Jimmy mixing parts of songs from different dates, editing WLL and create a Frankenstein HTEWW- that frightens me. BTW I love 929s Tangerine because of Jimmy´s vocal backing in the chorus. His voice is very low in the mix, but it is simply beautiful, never noticed him on any other Tangerine.
  16. Both shows are worth having, but imho both are overrated as well. Vienna: Page & Bonham deliver one of the best D&C ever. Jones is solid as ever (though plagued by a stomach colic). Plant´s voice is extreme weak, constantly breaking & squeaking- a piece of hard work. To make matters worse, Plant tries to hide his problems with a huge amount of vocal effects, which doesn´t help either. When I am in the mood for Europe 73, I prefer Offenburg anytime. I like Bonzo´s Birthday Party better than Vienna, though it isn´t in the top league with e.g Seattle, Providence & LA Forum June 3rd. Sound: For Vienna I´d recommend the Winston Remaster, with Graf Zeppelin´s Lead Poisoning just a tad behind. A Very Nice Night by EAP hasn´t conviced me. Graf Zeppelin´s version of Bonzo´s Birthday Party is the best I have heard so far.
  17. Don´t you worry about that. Please don´t get lost in irrelevant details, you got to concentrate on your "Nitpicking Page 77 mission". There is plenty of work: 4/27 Cleveland, Houston, Fort Worth, that whole lovely Landover run...................... Yesssssssss, it´s a&b and b&a!
  18. Did anyone visit JP.com on the 29 Sept.? In the diary section Jimmy looks back on 929 & the famous "Where is Bonzo?" episode and fails to remember it correctly. What we know: As the band delivers the maybe greatest acoustic set ever, poor John Henry relieves himself in a bathroom nearby. TTW, GTC followed by hilarious comments by the 3 members on stage, RP leads the audience to the first Bonham chant, on with Tangerine, second Bonham chant- and that is the point where Jimmy presents his alternative memory: Next on the setlist is the electric WIAWSNB, because Bonzo is still missing, they decide to retune the acoustic guitar & play Friends for the first and only time. Bonham still absent, RP sings the first 3 lines of Smoke gets in your eyes AND THEN Bonham finally returns. In fact a swearing and moaning Bonzo returned after Tangerine and the second Bonham chant, joined his mates and played the congas on Friends. Only Bonzo accompanied Robert on Smoke, they stopped because JP & JPJ didn´t join. Well, it is no crime to twist memory after 47 years. At least, he remembers that the concerts were recorded and that they did play exceptionally well.
  19. Immediately, I promise. Good one, I like that. Yes, that would be a fair price. Actually, this is not just wishful thinking; about 6 weeks after the initial sale of Deus Ex Machina I purchased EVs jewel case version for $100. As I buy just 1-2 high-priced EV box sets p.a., this is no big issue for me. Usually, I am happy with Graf Zeppelin & Eat A Peach & successor, they are $55 - $75 per 3 CD set and have exceptional sound quality.
  20. I have paid and ordered the Geisha box already, but haven´t got it yet.
  21. Ah, Jesus, how could I have been so blind! Thanks for enlightenment. I summarise: EV is a poorly managed business, they fail to negotiate a good price for the source tape, and of course their prices are ridiculous high, right? Let me ask you two things: What price you would consider to be fair for a complete 929 3 CD set? Please don´t say $20-$30, Mr Gibsonfan 159. Think, the tape owner has to be paid, and he knows what special tape he offers- we are not speaking of an uneven 77 performance, taped with the micro in someones arse. And once again: What is if EV couldn´t afford to buy & release any new material due to low sales, their fault alone? Who would provide us with new material, do you care about this?
  22. Well, even 20 years ago EV boots weren´t available for $20-$30. Trust me, I am not happy with the intangible high prices these days either, though I clearly understand why they have risen. Just take a look at the current posts regarding the uploading of the 929 SB. That is a completely mad situation- uploaded before regular orders have been shipped. To get anything fast & free (of course!), is that your understanding of the digital age? Do you think the realisation of any new boot is done by a fairy godmother? Anyway, if the sales are low and EV fails to release a complete 929, 928 or whatever there may be, do you think Guitar 101 or Mr. Jesusmahdi will provide us?
  23. No offense, but this is oversimplified. If 90 percent prefer free downloads, the rest has to buy "luxury" bootlegs, wheter they can afford or not. Boot prices could be a lot cheaper, if............. Jesusmahdi does not provide the fans with unheard live material, nor he is the new Robin Hood.
  24. 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.......
  25. Nope, no surprises. I guess Record Collector does a good job when the subject is LZ first vinyl pressings.
