  1. Remember, they released the Heartbreaker-teaser a few months before they finally released the 3/21/75 Seattle concert. That was a similar rip-off: $50 for Hearbreaker, the rest just various 75-SB-revolution album fillers. But let us enjoy the sunny side of the news: There is an intact SB of 929!!! I have dreamed of that for 25 years. This Immigrant Song with its wahwah-solo is simply out of this world. $65 for one single track is ridiculous, but I know myself.......... If EV will release 928 & 929 to celebrate the anniversary, I wonder how Jimmy Page could top this.
  2. Robert Plant gave the answer to how long they stayed in Japan right at their 71 gigs. If I remember correctly, he basically said: First gig, 23. Sept. Budokan Tokyo. in the short break between Immigrant Song & Heartbreaker, due to Jimmy`s broken string: " .......and we spent two (sic) weeks in glorious Japan, which was simply wonderful, and we haven`t even played a gig yet......." Last gig, 29. Sept. Osaka- I think in the last third of the gig: "..... and tomorrow we should be back home in England, oh dear" (with approving mumble of Bonzo in the background) So I think they flew directly from Hawai to Japan and had a week off to relax, before the tour started on the 23. Sept., and the left on the 30. Sept., RP, JB & JPJ to England & Jimmy to conquer Asia.
  3. Thanks for your funny comment, made me smile. Otherwise, this thread is pretty pointless. Just Keith`s opinion, so what? I really like the Stones until Mick Taylor left & I love Led Zeppelin- to compare them would be without rhyme or reason. Who sold more tickets, made more money or played to the biggest crowd????? pointless.........
  4. Cearly Sept. 1971, during their first visit to Japan. Easily to identify by Jones` haircut & Bonham`s Jeans-outfit. This photo and about 10 others from Japan 71 were printed in the "HM Photobook". The book features pictures of various rockbands. on & offstage in Japan during the seventies and early eighties. I bought it about 30 years ago, solely because of the few LZ and Deep Purple pictures, the rest is Scorpions & other clowns.
  5. It`s all very well to say that, he has been playing rythm guitar most of the time, anyway.
  6. Yes, Graf Zeppelin- the best sounding version of Burn Like A Candle, at least to my ears. And what a beautiful Since I`ve Been Loving You this is, the guitar intro before the first verse is very emotional & unique. I don`t understand why Jimmy Page used the version of Long Beach for the HTWWW release.
  7. Bravo, I like your theory. First a fine remaster of HTWWW in March, then in August I`ll get me the Super Deluxe HTEWW 8- (at least)- vinyl-set. And ok, I don`t mind a EC box by christmas. Let`s hope so!
  8. Since I love vinyl & I haven`t got a original copy of the original TMOQ yet, I was looking forward to receive the Open Mind "Blueberry Hill" release. I got it last Friday & what a surprise, THIS IS NOTHING but an awful disappointment!!! Just a clarification first: I have a fine turntable & stereo, and yes, I have bootleg ears (really enjoy the MSG 9/19/70 evening show). But this release is bad sounding, I can`t stand it. The rythm section is totally burried for the most part, guitar & vocals at the forefront, both terribly sounding. Especially Robert`s voice is unbearable: it is that shrill that I`d rather prefer the sounds in a dentist`s surgery! I have Blueberry Hill on Sanctuary & the Winston remaster, both of them sound lightyears better than this new vinyl release. The only good thing is the cover artwork with nice pics of the actual gig & some of NA 1970 shows. Please avoid this release, it is just a beggar in nobleman`s clothing. PS: I will never listen to this LP again & I hope I can get rid of it at the next vinyl market.
  9. Well, don`t you worry about that, Plant used that excessive reverb effect for Black Dog only (plus in the Whole Lotta Love freak part), every other song will be fine. I am a little bit worried about the heavy noise reduction. EV should not cut the heights that strong- the recording would surely benefit from more cymbals, a biting guitarsound & an overall more lively sound. If they are only halfway smart, they will release 928 in the summer of the 50 anniversary, that would be a worthy celebration. With some great officially anniversary releases on the horizon, EV needs a heavy caliber like 928 as counterweight, precious few would dig just another of these 75 boards.......
  10. I´d love to see a kind of Stones` "Live from the vaults" series or some unreleased live video. What ever it will be, I`ll take it. Allright Mr. Page, show the world that Deep Purples Made in Japan is not alone on the very top of the Fuji!!!
  11. Haven`t got my vinyl yet, but yes, you are damn right! Even more, I`d say that Mr You`re a Better Man Than I, the following bridge & Heart Full Of Stone are their finest moments. Jimmy`s guitar tone is out of this world, terrific!
  12. Haha, tbh I have never heard of Messrs Departee & Neckey, did they record the audience tapes? According to Argenteum Astrum & Bootledz, Graf Zeppelin is the only label which uses the second aud source (the longer one) as their primary source. As I love this Seattle gig, especially the wonderful version of No Quarter, I`d love to get me a TMOQ vinyl. But since these gutless fools at discogs have banned bootlegs, this will be a nearly impossible task.
  13. I have both the Graf Zeppelin & the Eat A Peach release of V1/2. EAP is a mix of two audience sources on 3 Cds, the GZ-set has 3Cds audience & the SB on 2 Cds. I prefer the GZ over the EAP release, as it is a touch clearer and more dynamic, at least to my ears.
  14. Has anyone heard the new Wendy release "Burn Like A Candle" 3 CD Ltd Edition Paper Case yet? While I am more than happy with the Graf Zeppelin version, every new release of this fabulous show seems to be a tantalising temptation. Back to topic: Until there is a remastered, raw & complete HTWWW on vinyl, it`s BLAC all the way.
  15. Reading my comment again after six months, I`d like to admit, that my concluding sentence (God given gift.........) was a little over the top & clumsy. Well, it wasn`t my intention to judge Robert`s offstage activities with a wagging finger, I am anything but a moralist and have NOT lived a life of a saint myself. Actually, I wanted to explain my thoughts about the loss/change of his voice in 72, after reading some strange comments like: "Cocaine does not harm a singers voice" & "only the failed vocal-cords surgery is to blame".....So, he did what he did, for good or bad- I do not condemn or glorify his antics. PS: I think you are terribly wrong: of course he liked to be tucked up in bed with a cup of lemon/honey and a couple of lemon squeezing ladies, didn`t he?
  16. No, I like the Winston remaster 929 Arigatou Osaka, but I was referring to Wendy`s "Live In Japan 1971 929", which I think is second to none. I have read your criticism about the sound of the Winston remaster & recommend the Wendy release, IMO a really considerable improvement. Try it, you won`t be disappointed.
  17. Thanks for your information about the Thank You mistery (a mystery, at least for me). And yes, an excellent audience source for 9/29 would be perfectly wonderful. Have you heard Wendy`s 2016 release "Live In Japan !971 929" yet? IMO the best SB so far plus a decent audience source. And this SB release is anything but flat, if we refer "flat" to horrible sounding 1973 SBs.
  18. Twenty years ago I got my first Japan 71 bootlegs: Reflections From A Dream remastered (9/23) on TDOLZ & Smoke Gets In Your Eyes (9/29) on Mud Dogs. I was totally blown away by these superb performances & I am obsessed with the tour of Japan 71 ever since. For 9/23 I`ve got the the above mentioned Reflections..., Tokyo Tapes on EV, First Attack of the Rising...on EV, Rock Carnival Not on Label & Rock Carnival on EV. I agree with you that the first third of the 7th source is incredible & sadly the sound declines afterwards. Also, the sound of sources 2,4, & 5 seem to weaken after the acoustic set. To my ears all the CDs that I know are heavily equalized, noise reduced and polished. For sound improvement the sky is the limit: I`d really love to hear Eat A Peach & Graf Zeppelin releases of 9/23- 9/29, as both of them are known for excellent & natural sounding releases!!! By the way, according to Louis Rey`s fantastic book "Live" the last song of 9/23 was Thank You, can anyone confirm this?
  19. Any title of the mentioned bootleg comp. has following mark: This release has been blocked from sale in the marketplace. It is not permitted to sell this item on Discogs. You can`t sell/buy these titles anymore, also the statistics and the sales history has been removed. I`m located in Vienna/Austria, maybe only european users are affected?
  20. Casual air raid few weeks ago? Do the EU-clowns want to crucify all bootleg companies again? I thought they should have to deal with bigger issues......... Every single release of Godfather, Godfatherbox, Eat A Peach, EV & and Tarantura has been blocked. So not only the european bootleg companies....... Wendy & Graf Zeppelin are not affected yet.
  21. OK, granted that you are right, may I take the liberty to ask: 1.) How many of the 25+ yet unreleased SBs are from 69-73? 2.) How dou you explain that EV exclusively released "666 The Great Beast" only a few months after the discovery of the 4 unknown SB-tracks of Montreux 70? 3.) Do they (EV) already own the complete 9/28/1971 tapes?
  22. Excellent choices has been made already, beloved 929 mentioned several times.........So, I vote for 9/23/1971 Budokan, Tokyo. To warrant a great release, it has to be the antithesis of HTWWW: Presented in a lavish 3 CD and 4 LP package, using only actual pictures of 9/23. No editing! No idiotic sound-polishing! Of course including the coversongs, royalties has to be paid this time! (Dear Mr. Page, you can`t eat money & the very last shirt has no pockets) Recommended title: "Many, Many Moons Ago"
  23. I have all official releases on Vinyl. The sound of Vinyl & the coverartwork in LP-size- simply perfect. Seven Vinyl boots excluded, all my boots are on CD. No downloads.
  24. Indeed, so many confusing details about 9/29 Jimmy Page declared the Japan recordings not suitable for an official release- do we have to trust in his rating? Anyway, he would butcher/polish the tapes like he did with HTWWW, cut out the banter and the awesome covers- we can only wait for a bootleg-release. By the way, the members of Deep Purple were worried when their record company recorded their Aug. 1972 gigs with dated equipment- the results can be heard on "Made in Japan". And yes, I reallly think that all the hitherto existing 9/29 "SB" boots are merely from the SB-split recording.
  25. To my understanding the "so called" SB of 9/29 was a soundboard/split, a recording someone made without permission of the band or the people who were in charge of recording the show- that is why the recording is so unbalanced. I think this theory is confirmed with the recently released Black Dog teaser of 9/28, which has superb balanced sound. Think, why should the real SB of 9/29 sound worse than the recording of the previous day? Same venue, same gear- no need to alter anything.
