  1. $3 large for a jersey? dang me. Gotta admit, the Blackhawk jersey is ICONIC, worth every cent.
  2. an official NHL hockey puck, early 70/'71 $4 and change, Mom, Dad, can I get an allowance raise? I remember getting a pair of Thom Mcan converse (remember those?) bc the regular cons were almost $15 !!!... ok, $14.99. Anyway, I'd take the Woodlawn station or the 241st/white plains rd. EL to manhattan from westchester co. Those were grrrrrreat times to be a kid. Everyone says that about their "time" growing up, but I MEAN IT... j/k Peace my man, thanks for the trip on the memory lane local. P.S. Clyde Puma's, still my fave style sneaker ever.
  3. as a NYC kid, going to Cosby's was almost like going to see Zep. It was one of the few shops where you could get AUTHENTIC Knicks/Rangers(that's the original Rangers Hockey club jersey w/ the zep tags) pro teams gear. Expensive as hell they were.
  4. agree 100%, the triple was clangy, ovation had depth.
  5. Not Jimmy, that's Buck Dharma hiding behind those shades.
  6. WINNER WINNER, Chicken dinner.
  7. the Offenberg show is the greatest live Rock guitar playing I've ever heard and I've seen many live shows including Allman's w/ Duane, Johnny Winter numerous times, Jeff and Clapton, Mahavishnu, Frampton, Buck Dharma, Jorma, Montrose, etc. Jimmy was so fast, clean, POWERFUL and tasteful on (at least) one night that it remains hardwired to my brain. Not saying Jimmy, or anyone is good, great, better, best overall, that would be impossible, but for one night... wow.
  8. Wonder what the Band remembers about this show(s), if anything(sarcasm). Anyway, wonderful capture of a great bygone era.
  9. Zep covers never did anything for me. Hearing TYG performed here makes me think/ask, has any Zep tune aged better than Ten Years Gone? What if TYG was on LZ4 instead of Stairway and vise versa?
  10. The Stones and Zep are nothing like each other. I've gone thru a major Stones stage and a major Zep stage and love them both. What's odd for me is knowing generally the Stones had a more rhythmic dance/boogie vibe, but NOW when I listen to PG specifically, that album makes me MOVE! Keith once said (paraphrasing) music has got to hit you in the nuts, Graffitti does just that.
  11. Bonham beat the hell out of those drums, obviously. Proof that the man makes the drums, not the other way around.
  12. Cocker opened for Zep at Asbury Park NJ then flew up to Woodstock.
  13. I can forgive an off song or even two, but Landover is a horror from start to finish. That night and the Cleveland show from the weird category I will never listen to again. My criteria for a bad show are First and foremost, Jimmy not being up to snuff on a particular night. 2nd: Plant is hoarse and Jimmy's playing is weak/average, and last would be Plant is barely audible/croaking throughout most of the show w/ Jimmy playing okay/acceptable. I can love most anything Zep or find something good in every other show other than the aforementioned.
  14. EPIC How many more times, but then again, HMMT was always epic.
  15. EXCEPT for that horrible Alembic shit aluminum sounding trash can bass JPJ's playing.
