  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. 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"
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Yeah, we do need a Japan 1971 SB release, and most likely it will be 9.28.71- the bonus teaser track on "Rock Carnival" is from the 28th Sept., the first night in Osaka. I really hope it will be released in 2017. And for 9.29.71: Maybe there is also a real SB with same quality as the Black Dog teaser from the 28th. I know a lot of people looking forward to the 3.21.75 release in June, so do I, but I think after the long string of 1975 SBs it is about time for for Japan 1971, or anything from 70-72.
  11. Hi ZepHead315 May I ask which releases you prefer of 10/2 Tokyo & 10/10 Kyoto? EVs "Led Zeppelin Is My Brother" is the best I have heard so far for Tokyo. Do you know Taranturas "Evil Spirits In Kyoto"? One of the three sources sounds really amazing( I`ve listened to samples on Black Beauty), although Bootledz report that the sources are unnecessarily mixed- or do you like the EV or Wendy versions better? Many thanks in advance!
  12. Ah, another EV "Nice Price" release, that`s what I call "Sick Again" Deus Ex Machina - Led Zeppelin - 3/21/75 Seattle, WA - Previously Unreleased Soundboard - Empress Valley Label.

  13. Yes, indeed- it is taken from Vinyl sources, all speed corrected, the transitions are smooth. A very enjoyable remaster. But I think the Winston Remaster is only the second best solution to my ears. "Live in Japan 929" by Wendy with its wonderful clarity and impressing dynamics is second to none.
  14. Hi Bozoso73 Thank you very much for the hints, the samples on the Black Beauty web page are very helpful- a great supplement to Argenteum Astrum, Collectors Music Reviews and BootLedZ.com. I am happy to report that my research was successful: I will hunt for the silvers of EVSDs - "Led Zeppelin is my brother" 2.Oct & Wendys "Stand by me" 9.Oct. Japan 1972 seems not to be in the centre of attention on the forum, since your post is the only reply yet. But maybe I`ll get some opinions on Tokyo 3.Oct, Osaka 4.Oct & the Nagoya & Kyoto boots. Thanks again
  15. Hi, I need your assistance, please. I`ve decided to renew/expand my Japan-1972-Boots. The boots I have are about 20 years old, only Oct. 2. Tokyo & Oct. 9. Osaka. A friend of mine got "Far East Side Story" for Oct. 2. & "Stand By Me" for Oct. 9., both Wendy releases and both far better than my old boots. But are they the best available? Please let me know about your choices about the best boots for each/one of the six Japan Concerts. Many thanks in advance!
  16. Haha, of course he could surprise us at any time, as he did: In his last newsletter, just a few days ago, he announced that his business will be closed soon, because he will leave Japan for vacation (to attend concerts abroad). And what a fortunate coincedence it will be, the day he is back in business Deus Ex Machina will be released! Don`t you worry, just a little more patience...... By the way. Empress Valley & our Gentleman in Tokyo should finally release the complete SB of Osaka 9.28.1971 which is long overdue. This will be a Big one- I have been waiting for 20 years.............
  17. And what about the sound of this marbled vinyl? I have the Black Crowes "Wiser For The Time" 4LP-Set on marbled vinyl & it sounds really awful.
  18. EV has just released their newest version. Live On Blueberry Hill 6 CDs Box Set CDs 1 & 2 Mono Master EVSD 530 & 531 CDs 3 & 4 Stereo Master EVSD 532 & 533 CDs 5 & 6 The Nobs, Copenhagen 28.Feb 1970- very strange, heaven knows why they add The Nobs as a bonus. I will keep calm until a reliable source confirms this release as definitive or better than the Eat A Peach release.
  19. Yeah, you must be joking! I agree to 100% that "What happened to your voice in 72, Robert?" is on the very top of the list. But sadly only in theory. I bet that his ego would NEVER EVER allow this question. Past, present or future: He would book this question as "Injury to his Majesty, Robert Anthony 1." Honestly, he turns 69 this year & still thinks he has the veto right to put down the cronological live album, a hearfelt wish of Jimmy since the 70ies! Jimmy, the man he owes more to than anyone else!!!- and he doesn`t give a shit. He had the guts to strut the stage 73 to 75, doing his Golden God thing, head full of snow, groupies and all that jazz, while his voice was shot at 75% of the shows. Why is he acting like a miffed old maid? We all know, that Jimmy would surely pick great shows with Robert in marvelous voice, why worry? What happened to his voice in 72? Alcohol, cocaine (of course C. can damage a voice by damaging the nose & the paranasal sinuses causing a gridlocked nose), too many late nights & his unnecessarily shrieking in the early days due to his insecurity & too much cigarettes........ He did not only lose his high range by Oct. 72, the warmth tone of his low range was gone, adding the sound of a locked nose on top of that. His natural voice was a God-given gift, he treated so thoughtlessly. What a shame.
  20. About Sonic Boom: The stereo mix has the odd separation, Mr. Jones on the left channel while the other members have to share the right channel- not very satisfying listening experience..... And now on to the good news: The mono mix has a good balance & you can crank it up to 11. Compared to EVs Florida Sunshine it is slightly less clear in the top range, particularly the voice, cymbals & keyboard. The only drawback is that the voice is a little overloaded (not distorted), means whenever Robert turns up there is a low sizzling noise, but not disturbing to my ears. All in all the mono mix is very enjoyable.
  21. Hi As we all know nothing yet, except THE gentleman in Tokyo, I notice, that most of you seem to favour or assume a 75 or 77 SB release. I don`t think the term Deus Ex Machina is a clue for the release of an so far uncirculated concert, maybe it is a SB of a concert we only know from AUD sources, or even possibly an adorable AUD source released from some tape hoarder.........could be anything........ Personally, I`d like to go back to the very beginning of this thread: Let it be the SB of 9/28/1971- Osaka first night, I will donate 28 candles in a church nearby, will spend 2 weeks prior to the release in a mental home (just to be prepared) & dig out those cigarette papers (most likely in reverse order)
  22. Hi Got my 2LP-set "Berkely Daze 2nd Night" 9/14/71 last week. It`s 180 gram, yellow vinyl, a fine gatefold cover & ltd to 400. It was sold as a new Eat A Peach release, shipped directly from Trieste, Italy- but Eat A Peach is nowhere mentioned on the cover. Instead it is stated as a Casino Records Ent. release, distributed by The Family Affair Company, LA, USA. Very confusing- zepster1979, who also got it, think it is released by the Godfather folks. Anyway, it sounds way better than my old CD Going To California by Electric Junk. Unfortunately, I am not in the lucky position to be able to compare it to the original TMQ vinyl...
  23. nt Hi zepster1979! I have received my copy of Berkely 2nd Daze last week & noticed a strange thing: My man in the USA sold me the 2LP set as a new (jan.2017) Eat a peach release, for lower shipping cost it was send directly from the producers, Trieste Italy. So far so good, but Eat a Peach is not mentioned anywhere on the cover, instead it is stated as a 2015 Casino Records Entertainment release, distributed by The Family Affair Company from LA USA. What do you think about that? Anyway, it is my first vinyl of this great show & I lke the sound.
  24. Hi Duckman Yes, you are perfectly right. I am very sorry, my memory got messed up a little bit. Today I have listened to the vinyl for the first time in twenty years & have identified it as the January 15th Trentham Gardens, Stoke show. Wow, so I was completely off topic even though I was stone cold sober. I have to apologise again, but please believe me, hearing that record again was really hard punishment. Never too old to make an idiot of myself........
  25. About twenty years ago I have spent some days in London. I browsed many record stores in search of L.Z. vinyl boots & luckily I finally found a "Going To California" by TMOQ (the one with beige cover and red writing). Cover and vinyls (red) seemed to be in great (NM) condition, the price was moderate, I felt like I had found an ancient treasure. One of the first things I did back home in Vienna was to listen to this record. Only a few seconds into the recording I started to get confused and worried: Why is Rock & Roll the first song? And as Robert joins with a completely shot voice I surely did pass out. They sold me a Going to California cover and vinyls from the Southampton gig on 22. Jan. 1973! Maybe you can imagine that I wasn`t sure, if I should throw the record out of the window or jump myself.....................
