  1. Wont read anything that has anything to with Mic Wall. That guys book "When Giants walked the Earth" Was so full of opinionated crap it was a waste of money to buy. Led Zeppelin story has been told a million and 1 times, why do I need to hear how "stair way ...." was constructed when the singer himself trashes it every chance he gets.
  2. Well I went to see Plant recently and I do have to say his shows are not that entertaining. He has definitely left Rock & Roll behind.
  3. Songs Remain the Same is a 1973 concert in NYC. BBC shows are 1970-71 live recordings played in a theater. How the West Was Won was a 1972 concert in California. How come there is no official 1975 -1977 tours. Dave Lewis of Tight but Loose magazine states that all of 1975 & 1977 were recorded for the band, I think what it comes down to is the performance on most of the 1977 tour were poor and not something Jimmy would want to be heard. I think the whole idea of Japan 1972 or 71 release would be a waste, same set list as the 1973 tour.
  4. I think we Led Zeppelin fans know that the band is done. 2007 was the last time we will see the remaining members on stage as a unit. Robert Plant has moved so far from Zeppelin it is almost a thought in a dream to him. Furthermore I don't think I would want to see a bunch of grandpa's singing songs of my youth. I think there is no joy in Zeppelin for Robert. Losing a child, then a good friend it is probably not worth the pain. Led Zeppelin in physical form is gone, though the legend will remain the same.
  5. Who cares, what a bootleg company says or post. there is over 318 bootlegs circulating and most of them are crap. Led Zeppelin is not making money off these bootlegs, so why care what empress valley says.
  6. Someone invent a damn time machine, I have some Zeppelin concerts to go to!!
  7. I think it might be something from the 1977 shows. We already have 1973, 72', (HTWWW), 71' (BBC). I listen to the Japan 1972 1971 shows. We already have those on Bootlegs.
  8. Why? Because Jimmy holds the right to Led Zeppelin, and he is notorious on the quality when it comes to Zeppelin. Face it Zep Head, people who are fans of Zeppelin are tired of the cash grab.
  9. Zeppelin 3 was the first CD I bought when the new remastered's came out. I was Happy as one could be with the sound and the richness of the whole thing. I hope someday Page will consider putting Zeppelin 3 and Un Named Zeppelin (4) out in Blue Ray Audio. That would be great! By the way not to plug any speakers, but the Sonos Player 1 sounds great when listing to Gallows Poll, Friends, Tangerine, That's the way.
  10. As a Led Zeppelin fan and a male, I never looked at them as being "Sexy" I always thought they just had a cool stage presence. Maybe not so much in the 1977 with those glossy pants Plant wore during the Seattle Show. I just thought they had a way of not letting their appearance be the part of the show, they let the music do the talking. Now considering by 1977 the band was in terrible shape because of excessive drug use and alcohol consumption. So by then even Robert Plant admitted that the band was show boating a bit and it became less of the music and more of the scenery. I have talked to a lot of people who Saw Zeppelin in Seattle from their first tour to their last tour in America and a few of them said Zeppelin in 1977 Seattle was terrible, Jimmy was drunk, and the band just didn't have the same punch. So it wasn't so sexy. It was a slush.
  11. The first Led Zeppelin song I heard was Daze and Confused. I knew this to be the foundation of Heavy Metal. Then I heard Kashmir a couple of days later. I was only 15 years old. I've been hooked on Zeppelin ever since. Best band ever to walk the Earth. That is a fact.
  12. I just can't understand why Jimmy Page put's this out when only 12 years ago tsrts was released.
  13. I can only wonder Why? I already have the 2007, the original. This is a sad joke by Page.
  14. Around 1977 we all know the tragedy that befell R, Plant and his son. As the story goes, Plant was considering becoming a teacher of some sort. He was truly intending to leave Zeppelin behind. Well there is many videos and article stating that it was Bonham encouraging Plant to comeback. Well they end up making 1 more album, and then doing a small tour of Europe; before heading off to America. Well the last time Zeppelin was preparing for the American tour, John Bonham kinda freaks out while drunk saying "He doesn't want to do this anymore, I want to sing, I am not that good of a drummer now." (I am paraphrasing of course.) So this is my problem with this situation: What changed in Bonzo?, Was the drinking taking a serious effect on his mental health? If he didn't want to be a drummer anymore, why ask Robert to comeback? Was there an underling issue with Bonzo from the beginning? I have read to many stories of his rage against anyone. Was John Bonham bipolar ? I know the only people that could answer these questions would be the band members and family, though I think it raises a good question. https://www.loudersound.com/features/the-last-days-of-led-zeppelin-days-of-thunder
  15. Jimmy We don't need a photograph book. I just don't see the point? It is a slap in the face to the people who bought the Super Deluxe editions. Why not just open the bootleg vaults and re master the best of the best concerts.
  16. That is incredible. It just shows how timeless Led Zeppelin is.
  17. Do not read When Giants Walked the Earth. It was a horrible account on Led Zeppelin. I tossed it in the trash.
  18. Holy cow that is an Amazing version of NO QUARTER. WOW !!! I always thought NQ was kinda the bathroom break song for the 1977 tour. Because the Seattle 1973 is incredible. No disrespect to those that like the NQ 1977 versions, in my opinion they could have cut the length of NQ and play more tracks off Presence, imagine hearing "Hot's on for No where" "candy store Rock".
  19. My Gosh. My sister bought the soundtrack and listen to it once and put it away. That is terrible. JPJ did much better later on with other production work. I like what he did with Buttholesurfers, and REM.
  20. someone please tell me where this show is from ? Holy COW ZEPPELIN KILLED IT!!!
  21. I am sorry if this conversation has been written before. In saying that I shall begin. Not being the biggest fan of Live unofficial recordings (bootlegs) I had to try open my prospective on the issue. I know that the sound is not alway the best so I learned to listen to the performance, and in doing so I discovered that their is some hidden gems in these sometimes horrible recordings. One show that comes into mind is Kezar stadium show in 1973. Bonzo is a mad man on celebration day, and Page is the wizard I've only heard legends about. Than they explode into a mean version of Black Dog. Plant doing his best to hit those incredibly hard notes that would rip my lungs in two if I tried that scream at the end of B.D. The power Zeppelin had during their live shows has not been matched today by any band. I am very happy that Zeppelin collectors are sharing the magic of live LED ZEPPELIN. My Zepptology continues.
  22. I may not like the idea of Robert Plant always turning down a Zeppelin reunion, though this has been the case since 1982. Led Zeppelin is done, at least with Robert as a singer. Furthermore I have read in this forum that Jimmy Page might not be able to play guitar anymore because of his hands. I don't know if that is true or not but the question has to be asked? "how come Page always claims he has new music coming" I personally think Page is not able to write new tunes.
  23. I really Hope that Jimmy doesn't release these shows. The set-list for these shows are already on an official release. I hope that he has something from the 1977 tour, or 1980 tour over Europe. If anything why not anything from 1969 American tour?
  24. Here are the facts. Jimmy Page did go to court over these bootlegs being sold. he seizure of CDs and DVDs included counterfeit Led Zeppelin material valued at an estimated £11,500, a £220 set of recordings from a Led Zeppelin tour in Japan and a £40 set of a warm-up session in Denmark. It also included an estimated £1,790 BPI anti-piracy manager David Wood welcomed Langley's conviction. "Langley was notorious in the trade for the sale and distribution of bootlegs and is another of the major bootleggers to be convicted. He'd amassed a huge personal fortune by ripping off musicians, record labels, music publishers, and the state, but justice has finally caught up with him," he said. https://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/08/01/led_zep_piracy_conviction/
