    Why not just issue these recordings as CD releases and digital downloads? I'd rather have physical copies of these recordings anyway.

    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.

    Get an Arcam Digital to Analogue converter. I have one. Attach a USB cable from your laptop to this and cable it to your amp. I stream all my music and I also attach the TV to it and play it through my amp. Fantastic bit of kit

    If you buy a DAC (digital audio converter), you can hook up your computer (and all your other digital devices) to your hifi (and all your analog devices). 

    Many thanks to Chillumpuffer & Chef Free for bringing some light into the dark, sounds good to me.

    I may have to use a tape recorder 1980 style to record as it plays, lol

    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?


  4. 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......

    The reason is that after 50 years a performance goes into public domain in Europe if the record company does not issue anything before the 50 years are up.

    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?

    We could be in for a bonanza of unreleased Led Zeppelin shows finally seeing the light of day.

    Where is the champagne!?

    Right, that's TSRTS out of the way...

    *taps fingers on table

    “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.................

    Considering the show's generous 200 minutes length, the (optimistic) four reels scenario, the SB source can easily be transferred to three discs and whatever the end result, I'm ON September 29. Let's hope for some miracles, but in either way...929 SB will BE my LZ 50th anniversary cherry on the cake 😴

    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.

    I’m prepared to wait for the drop in price in the EV one. If I manage to get a torrent before I buy it, it won’t stop me buying it. I’ll put it to one side and the kids can get it for me for Christmas 

    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)................

    Hi mate. How long does it normally take the Eelgrass release to come out after EV release theirs?

    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?

    So, anyone watching Mindhunter yet???

    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.

    There's been talk on Royal Orleans regarding this tweet sent out three days ago:

    This is a translation (please forgive the poor English):

    I assume that this is a reliable account, no? If so, this is HUGE news!

     

    Just back from vacation- man, I have been waiting to read this announcement for more than 20 years!

    I think it's a certainty, the days of only releasing the new material as an option are over - it'll be paired with multiple sources to make it the usual 6CD/9CD/12CD etc multiple format boxes.    Like Seattle this is all about the maximum $ given it will be copied by cheaper labels and uploaded for the non-paying masses.    I can't see it being any cheaper than the lowest priced initial Seattle release - $350.     Happy to be wrong ☺️. 

    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,-.

    If true and the recording is mostly complete minus some tape changes, this could be in the top ten of all bootlegs (and official releases) for Zeppelin ever

    Agreed, come to think of it, 929 would be the one to take to the island.

    Anyone have any thoughts on why Page added Over the Hills, The Ocean, etc. but NOT Thank You from the last night in NY? Is he saving that for Record Store Day 2019 (sigh....)

    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!

    As a matter of fact, right now now I'm in the Festival Hall, Osaka and - so far - it's worth every yen I've spend. A bit disappointing though, I didn't manage to get the photographs out of the envelope without damaging it 😭 (the envelope, not the photo's) on the other hand, my supplier (you know who) did give me a copy of the flyer which was made for this box...👍

    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.

    I am on a Zep Facebook group, and its been stated that JPJ and Page did not attend Plant's son Karac's funeral  Does anyone know the reason why.  One poster said that Page was on vacation.  

    I find it hard to believe that JPJ and Page would not attend, unless there was some major reason not blocking them.  Even if Page was on Vacation.  He is rich enough to leave where he is from and attend and tun go back.

    I just find this hard to swallow.  Anyone care to shed light on this if possible.

    Sad but true, JPJ & JP did not attend the funeral. Don´t know Jones´ reasons, but Page was indeed on vacation, more precisely on a round trip, from H-ville via Smackland to Brownstone by the sea.

    He used to have a house in Primrose Hill though I think he primarily resides in the Midlands.

    Ah, I see- Primrose Hill isn´t really far away from Camden. I have noticed that over the past years he gave most of his interviews in cafes or kebab houses situated in Camden.

    Thanks for the info.

    That man bag is completely unacceptable.

    I've just burned all my Zeppelin albums.

    Agreed, this bag looks pretty shitty, but he did not carry it without a cause.

    On his way home from the Awards  he took a rest in a lovely park, opened his bag & took out the cigarette-papers and some.........

    And you know how it is.....

    BTW, do you know if he lives in the north of London, he mentions Camden Town quite often.

    I’m hoping you’re right. My understanding is that “Eelgrass” releases come out shortly after EV releases and are a cheaper version. Is this true? And are EV and Eelgrass one and the same companies....one offering a premium packaged product and the other a cheap and cheerful one? Or do Eelgrass just rip off EV releases?

    Responding to  the release of Deus Ex Machina by Eelgrass, EV released their budget jewel case shortly after, to the same price. The EV budget version came quite exactly 2 months after the initial releases of their limited box sets. My love for the 75 tour is manageable, so I thought buying the EV cheapo is a good idea.

    Wouldn't they produce much more fanfare to increase the 50th anniversary fever? For last year's 'Deus ex Machina' Seattle 75 SB they fired on all cylinders ...months before its release.

    Fingers crossed...hopefully the elusive 929 board will be released in september (and by the end of the year they throw in the SB/multitrack dub matrix😈 which is even more exciting, me thinks)

    Could be their classy strategy, keep silent, leave the spotlight on Jimmy´s announcements for official anniversary releases. The book in October, the re-remastered TSRTS in September- huh, breathtaking. Hopefully one interesting "Live from the Archives" for christmas, if at all. And then, out of the blue, EV´s  929 early September. No advertising or fanfare needed, this is a holy grail.

    Knowing the new IS version, the only thing that would benefit from a SB/multitrack matrix would be the guitar. Is it technical possible to bring in just the guitar? All the other instruments of the old (so called) SB version would spoil the sound of the new, real SB. If it´s possible, one should use the guitar of Wendy´s definite 929 release of 2016, it is raw & exiting like the official RAH 1970.

    And then 928, please.
