  1. 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?

  7. 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.
