    One only has to ask; Are they turning a profit? If not, then they're a poorly managed business. If they're paying more for the sources than they can get out of them, then that's bad negotiating. There will always be leeches, but putting prices on physical copies so high that even the people interested in them can't afford them is plain stupid. You lose both sides that way. Putting a disclaimer that says "please stop" isn't gonna do shit.

    Well I see that everyone is bright and cheery today listening to their new boots. . bought or otherwise. .:) I have said that I own lots of silvers.  And I also have every show taken from the internet.  The music industry was in fact torn down because of music sharing no doubt.  This is a 20 year old argument that got Lars crucified back in the day.  Unfortunately music isnt what it was and it's all about that one big single and 15 producers on the tracks.  I can speak for the few that when priced fairly people do buy!  You come out the gates wanting someones whole check for a half a show, no Plantations, and single gorging ($60 a single) you are asking for trouble.  EV is not going about this in the right way. Make them affordable and people will buy! It's not like file sharing just started so why is EV having the problem now?  Bad management and strategy. . plain and simple.     

    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?

    That's a chicken or egg argument. If the boots were $20-$30, I'd buy the heck out of them. Who in their right mind is gonna drop $50 for 1 song? EVSD apparently haven't accepted the digital age.

    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?

    someone very cool to people who cant afford luxury bootlegs

    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.

  4. 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.......

    Too easy - find an RCA Cable that goes to 1/8th inch - plug the RCA cables  into your tape monitor input & your good to go! I have a mid-80's Harmon Kardon amp and this is how I run  Pandora (via my iPad) through my system.

    Just get a 2x rca - 3.5mm cable and connect it that way. It's how I connect my 30+ year old amp to my PC. 

    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!

    I appreciate that. Eat A Peach release is what I was listening to before I gave it to a co-worker. I always enjoy testing a copy of that one out.

    Until yesterday, I had never heard the Eat A Peach (formally Godfather?) release. Thank you, Strider.

    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.........

    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?

  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......

    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.
