  1. It's worth messing with it a bit! I got decent results out of a free compressor plugin called RoughRider2, you can download and install it into Audacity. But thanks! I'm doing both a film and album version for this one so it's taking a while, hoping the end result will be worth it. That said I absolutely agree, the show deserves its own individual release. As an audio only release it's possible we could get Thank You from the show, unless the organ track didn't record on that either (like SIBLY). I'd give a helluva lot to hear that one!
  2. I agree, the true vinyl versions are much better. I think I had come across your rip, it was very nice! I'm not a huge fan of what Wendy did to it, their EQ work is odd. But Liquid Led did some awesome work with it, I still haven't heard a better version. A while back I was playing around with the vinyl version and was able to boost the guitar a fair bit with a compression VST in Audacity; I'll have to look back at some point here and get that finished up. Currently working on a RAH '70 project!
  3. Absolutely! The Liquid Led one in particular was great, it's my go to version for that show.
  4. Yep, wasn't all that much to be done for that. I would look for the vinyl versions because they're far clearer than the "tape," which I think were recorded from the original vinyls anyways. Graf Zeppelin and Liquid Led seem to have the best of the bunch. The pernod remaster is also really good.
  5. Might wanna look for the recent Graf Zeppelin release, it's awesome. Other than that I'd say get the Liquid Led one.
  6. Interesting finds! I really wonder what happened to the rest of the Hampton show honestly. I'm curious what that Whole Lotta Love would've been like because the show's mood is so different and relaxed.
  7. I wouldn't be mad! If there's any possibility that we would get parts that we didn't have before, or even a different mix or something, I'd be interested. Wouldn't come close to getting the complete unadulterated soundboards from EV, but it'd be interesting to see what Page would do with a release like this.
  8. Pretty much any '71 Celebration Day, the man went wild on these!
  9. I love Sick Again! I think it fits very well with the overall vibe of the '75 shows, not necessarily as much in '77. However I do think Custard Pie also would've worked in that slot, it's another awesome song that I wish they had played live. As for The Rover, it's a great song, but by '75 I don't think Robert would've been able to sing it satisfactorily. So really the best choice for the second song is Sick Again or Custard Pie.
  10. Gotcha, I really wondered about it since the quality so great; I'm curious about your opinion on the 928 board tape too. The quality is still great but not superb like the 929 tape, and I doubt the botch job noise reduction was something that any decent sound engineer would do to the tape. Do you think that was leaked too and EV just messed around with it more than 929?
  11. Do you think the 929 board was leaked from an official source? Maybe some attempt at a reference mix of the board tapes they had on hand for the potential release?
  12. This is so cool! I hadn't heard of this before now either. Would've loved to hear BIGLY in '77, it would've been great to have that back in the set. Also would far rather have a reworked TTW in place of Battle of Evermore. Speaking of additions to the set, I think Ramble On would also have been an awesome addition for this tour. It's a shame they didn't look to try to completely revamp the setlist with more songs they hadn't attempted previously.
  13. I'd consider the Supro Blues King series: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/BluesKing12--supro-blues-king-12-15-watt-1x12-inch-tube-combo You can get that vintage tube drive from this. I'd also look into getting one of the tonebender fuzz pedals if you're going for the full authentic setup and playing a Telecaster.
  14. Zep first obviously, then The Who and Pink Floyd for me.
  15. Where would you personally put the 3/21 Seattle version? That one stands out to me the most for that incredible, frenetic grooving solo. Such a different take from the usual.
  16. Sick! Good stuff man. I have my grandpa's old Dahlquist DQ-10s that I restored last summer running through a Luxman amp. Even with a budget Polk sub the system sounds great, I'll have to put up some pictures soon here.
  17. I know he used the Telecaster pretty extensively on In Through The Out Door as well.
  18. Impressed with Cleveland's moves in free agency. Love the Conklin and Hooper signings especially, should shore up the offensive line and give Mayfield a truly reliable tight end, Njoku is just subpar at best. That said, I've been down the hopeful path with them too many times before. Gotta see it before I believe it 🙄
  19. What was the deal here? Did the author explain the motives behind the pilot doing all this?
  20. I honestly wish I had been around at the time to experience this all chronologically. There's so many great recordings available today, and hindsight is 20/20, but I just can't begin to imagine what an exciting time it had to have been. But I gotta ask here, do you remember your reaction to the Stairway solo?
  21. You know, I never actually thought of it like this, in all the years since I first heard the album until now. I always was strongly of the opinion that HHWCID would've been the absolute perfect closer, but with some more thought, yeah. This is honestly the most Zeppelin kind of thing to do. Maybe a veiled proverbial middle finger to the press at the time? With such a radical shift in their sound and the scathing reviews the band probably anticipated, I wonder if ending the album so radically was a sort of "in for a penny, in for a pound" kind of deal.
  22. Exactly! I knew I couldn't be the only one thinking this. I had the album on with my brother yesterday, and HE even said the album would've been far better closed with HHWCID instead of Hats Off. And considering their penchant for ending albums with some seriously awesome songs (How Many More Times, Bring it on Home, Levee, The Ocean), Hats Off is just a weak end to such an amazing album. HHWCID would send it off into the sunset the right way.
  23. Funny in hindsight that Page wasn't a fan of the artwork or the spinning wheel jacket idea at the time, isn't it? I thought it was brilliant, it's one of my favorite rock album covers. Interesting choices for the extra tracks! I'm curious why the Berkeley '71 That's the Way instead of the Blueberry Hill one?
