  1. When you look at the History of Zeppelin shows, a lot of times they played with lesser known bands in the Late 77’ tour in Oakland,  Judas Priest was new band and some say they blew Zeppelin off the stage. Then Knebworth line up was terrible, they did ask a young Dire straight band to play but declined for some reason. Probably because of the rumors of Zeppelin that swirled around the band. 

  2. Having just my eyes and scores of listening to bootlegs and seeing Page and Plant twice (walking to  clarksdale tour) I would say Jimmy was in top form at the O2 concert. Jason Bonham did ok, I personally think he isn’t that good of a drummer. Robert Plant did ok but was way better in the 98’ tour. JPJ was the key. Page & Plant tour didn’t have the right feel, the groove, it didn’t have Jones. 

  3. If I was to do a top 10 for the mighty Zeppelin it would go like this. *

    1. When the levee breaks 

    2. What is what should never be 

    3. Trampled underfoot 

    4. For your life

    5. Hot’s on for no where

    6. Bring it on home

    7. Kashmir

    8. How many more times

    10. In the evening. 

    * subject to change.

    3. Moby dick

    5. Darlen

    6. Living loving (she is just a woman)

    7. Out on the titles ( the ending drumming is amazing)

    8. Stairway to Heaven 

    9. Houses of the Holy -song

    10. Fool in the rain 

  4. When the news came around that Led Zep's 50th anniversary was coming up, I was expecting a little more than just a book and some online song list. I wasn't expecting a concert but I was hoping for a live album. Nothing. I will say I am not interested in paying for crappy bootlegs on some website when Youtube has ton of those already.  

  5. Led Zeppelin in the beginning was known as heavy blues rock band before Houses Of The Holy. 

    Some people thing Led Zeppelin 3 "Since Ive been loving you" is Zeppelins best or maybe a couple of tracks off Led Zeppelin 1. (you shook me, or How many more times) For me I believe Led Zeppelin hit their peak with the blues with one song that stands as the best Led Zeppelin blues song. That song would be : When The Levee Breaks: Off their fourth untitled album. The structure of that tune is simply amazing and the drum beat that started the industrial Revolution has been sampled by 100s of hip artiest. the last section at the 2:00 minute mark is the making of ROCK.    

  6. I bought all of the reissues accept Physical, & Led Zeppelin 1. Not that I don't like those albums I just haven't gotten around to getting them.

    The first batch I bought was In through....Presences, Houses Holy. I was not happy with the mono versions of All my love but didn't bother me much because the official version sounds amazing on my Sonos Player 1 speakers. Incredible intro with those keyboards by Jones. The surprise gold nugget was THE Epic. holy cow that jam deserve to be played on the radio! The keyboards are more in the back, Jimmy playing is more upfront as is BONZO. Presences is my favorite Zeppelin Album because it has no keyboards, or soft ballads. It is just pure balls out rock and roll with a hint of the disgust Plant was having with the drug scenes of the 1970s. Excellent recording, very happy to have it. I think en general I was very happy with the cystral clear sounds of the studio and was happy for the new lesser liked companion disk.   

  7. When I think about how Zeppelin could've toured after the 02 concert, and how upset I was with Plant not wanting to continue. Then it dawned on me. Why does Robert have to meet those expectations when he and the boys already were on top of it. There was no need to continue because there was nothing left to prove. The Music and what official  videos we have is probably going to be it. I am fine with it now, because when you look at it, its also 30= years of the Bonham family having to remember the days their father, husband, brother was still around. Led Zeppelin lives within the heart of the fans now. I would be happy with one kick ass Best of Led Zeppelin Live with best recording possible. Peace. 

  8. Best band to ever walk the Earth. I do not care what they did backstage even though it makes for good readings. The Music those 4 created will stand the test of time. Generations from now will pounder in their cubical mind machine getting blasted by Zeppelin. 


  9. Was digging through my archives of Led Zeppelin related stuff. Besides finding some Rolling Stones interviews. I found this, Proximity/ I bought this at a now defunct record store back in 1993. anyone else ever hear of this magazine ???



  10. Holy Crap this Version of Sick Again 77' Houston is beyond words. I am amazed how strong Zeppelin was live in 77' this is like a punch in the gut. In your face heavy rock. Yeah!! I know your name and no you don't look the same but sure did rock many moons ago!!!

    Here's a sample of the North_Bridge remaster of May 21, 1977. If you want the full show in lossless quality, send me a message.



    Holy Shit this is what I am talking. Excellent recording with rich bass and Pages guitar effects in full effect. Yeah I will be sending yeah a message! 

  12. Have a question to the mighty Led Zeppelin collectors that post some stellar Live Zeppelin shows on Youtube. 

    I  been listening to this 1975 live soundboard recording of different concerts played in America. The sound is incredible, (he does state he did some sound touch ups) than I listened to his 1977 recording compilation. and the sound is terrible. performance wise the shows selected are great, but the sound quality is (be Nice) not good. Can anyone refer me to some great sounding 1977 recordings, besides (Listen to this eddie)

    Forgot to give my buddy Ian (Melcore) credit for compiling this list, thanks bro! ;)


    and that's 6/29/69, not 29, lol. :blush:

    Dave Lewis says "All the 1977 concerts were filmed and recorded for the band. What happen to those shows who knows. Maybe when Kevin Sheerly looked through the vault said most shows were not good enough for release.  

  14. In response to you inquiry of me trashing the 77'.

    Robert Plant and Jone's both said on video or articles that the 1977 tour was a sham. Plant stated they "were show boating most of the tour" 

    Jones said he hated playing in huge stadiums because of the lost connection with the fans.

    Jimmy Page did state that "The demand was so huge we had no choice but to play stadiums"    

    I have The Destroyer, Dallas 1975, Berlin 1980, San Fransisco 1969* killer show.   

  15. Led Zeppelin by 1977 became what Bonzo feared most. {people coming to a concert just to see the band, not so much being interested in the music. Led Zeppelin still was a huge draw, though other bands took the mantle of hard rock. How could you enjoy sitting 300 level in the King Dome and enjoy the show. Echo in the dome was horrible, and the band wasn't playing at their best in majority of their shows.

  16. I have come to a conclusion that Led Zeppelin multitude of bootlegs circulating around the web and other venues that some if not most led Zepp collectors might agree on. Led Zeppelin has some pretty outstanding Audience recording of their concerts that are being remastered to even greater listening enjoyment. For example I would have to say two songs from the concert I posted below sounds some much better than any soundboard recordings of the era. Kashmir and Achil

    les Last Stand have always lack the rich power of Zeppelin live. I believe that some newer boots are improving the sounds.
