  1. 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.
  2. The Doors / The Doors Locomotive / We Are Everything You See The 13th Floor Elevators / The Psychedelic Sounds Of The 13th Floor Elevators Tommy Bolin / Teaser Jimi Hendrix Experience / Are You Experienced Tom Waits / Closing Time
  3. Alarm! It´s getting serious, at last. Just saw this one: 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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...........
  6. 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:
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Good Lord! No matter what you will nitpick after this precious 1980 tour, things can only get better. Enjoy yourself! Lol
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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"
  13. 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 Jimm
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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)
  19. 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..................
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. I have no idea. It is stereo, don´t know if only one source or different sources has been used.
  23. 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.
  24. 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!
