  1. I'm trying to gather shows from all tours and showcase them as a sort of "what if there were 4 to 6 concerts on each deluxe edition release." I'm having a bit of trouble picking a night for this tour. This would be attached to Led Zeppelin II. More info on my project here. Quality of the concert aside, what are your favorites from tour?
  2. I've finished my pick for UK/Scandinavia 1969. This is a showcase of the Danish shows March 15 – 17. I've ordered the setlist in a way that was typical to this tour. I was able to cheat a little bit since the Danmarks concert was already on the DVD, so this was a quickie. More info about which gig was used for each song, etc. is in the video description. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgSXPaRQHfY
  3. Thanks for the link. I'm just going to use the January dates, so I didn't want to include what was potentially a May date during a January gig.
  4. I'm trying to find ideas for conglomerating concerts (see my YouTube channel for two concerts I've already done.) After I do Knebworth '79, I'm thinking of doing the first Boston Tea Party run in January '69. There are 2 definitive dates to mix from, 1/23 and 1/26. The issue I'm running into concerns this concert: Is it January 25, 1969? OR May 27, 1969? When searching both dates, the same concert comes up. Led Zeppelin's official website seems to point to the January 25th, but other Zep Heads seem to suggest it is from May 27th. I'm not well versed in their early shows (I find myself listening to later Zeppelin more often than not,) so if I could get some opinions on this matter, it would be much appreciated!
  5. I've done a concert analysis, for anyone who cares: https://bit.ly/2UxLIqM
  6. Shows for Led Zeppelin I I've come down to 6 or 7 shows for the Zep I era: Scandinavia '68, UK '68: There are no known recordings for these two tours, though I feel these could even be considered "New Yardbirds" era tours (maybe October 25 for the UK tour purely for the fact it was their first show as "Led Zeppelin".) North America Winter '68-'69: December 30, 1968 – Spokane, WA (for the sole purpose of being the first known recording. If there is anything earlier on this tour, I'd place it here. If something from before this tour exists, I'd just remove this.) January 23-26, 1969 – Boston, MA UK/Scandinavia '69: March 15-17 – Danish shows (including Danmarks TV) North America Spring '69: April 24-27 – San Francisco, CA shows (including both Fillmore West and Winterland Ballroom. A sort of first "How the West Was Won," per se.) UK Summer '69: June 20 – Newcastle, UK (considering it's the only full length concert available to our ears for this tour, this is my pick. I would consider June 15th in Manchester since they played more songs than usual for this tour, but I would actually have to hear it first before making a judgement call) North America Summer '69: August 18 (evening) – Toronto, Canada (If I had to choose between Toronto and Texas Pop Festival, I think I'd choose this show, as it feels much more intimate of a show. I feel both this and the Texas concert are both deserving.) August 31 – Lewisville (Texas Pop Festival), TX I'm slowly going through each tour, trying to find that one show (or small group of shows within a small area [i.e. How the West Was Won]) per tour (not counting the '75, '77, '79 & '80 tours), and will keep posting for anyone interested. If anyone has any additional insight into my choices, I'd love to hear from you.
  7. I made a mix of "In the Light" and the two versions of "Everybody Makes it Through" on my YouTube channel. While clearly this mix was never meant to exist, I'm curious to know what others think. Does this union of two different versions work together? Do the harmonies work? Dare I ask, do the double lyrics work? The drone intro is a bit messy (due to how the tracks line up), but once the rest of the band picks up, it's more listenable
  8. So I've been inspired by the ongoing Metallica Deluxe Edition series (which features the original album, riff tapes, demo tapes, rough mixes, and about 3-6 concerts per album). This got me thinking: which concerts could go into a Led Zeppelin version of this? This is what I have so far (official albums or parts of album are in bold, projects I've done that would be included are underlined, general concerts that needs specification are in italics) Led Zeppelin: Gladsaxe '69, Paris '69, misc. BBC '69 Led Zeppelin II: RAH '70 Led Zeppelin III: Led Zeppelin IV: BBC '71, Japan '71, UK '71, Australasia '72?, LA '72 Houses of the Holy: Japan '72, UK '72/'73, Euro '73, NYC '73 Physical Graffiti: Chicago '75?, Baton Rouge '75, Seattle '75, Earl's Court '75 Presence: Landover '77, Seattle '77, In Through the Out Door: Knebworth '79, Berlin '80 I'm shooting for 5-7 concerts for LZ1, LZ2, LZ4, HotH; 2-3 for LZ3; 3-5 for P.G. Presence and ITtOD. Concerts can be conglomerated in multiple nights like How the West Was Won and The Song Remains the Same or like my Earls Court '75 and Landover '77 videos on my YouTube. Tour eras I'm shooting for: Led Zeppelin I: Scandinavia '68 to North America Summer '69 Led Zeppelin II: European Autumn '69 to N.A. Spring '70 Led Zeppelin III: Iceland, Bath, & German '70 & N.A. Summer '70 Led Zeppelin IV: UK Spring '71 to N.A. '72 Houses of the Holy: Japan '72 to N.A. '73 Physical Graffiti: N.A. '75 & Earl's Court '75 Presence: North America 1977 In Through the Out Door: Copenhagen 1979 to Europe 1980 (Coda: '85, '88, '95, & '07)
  9. Eventually I'll make a "www.thegardentapes.co.uk" explanation of the exact changes I've done, and I'll post it on the original post
  10. This isn't your typical conglomerate list. I took the time to take the 4 nights of Landover 1977 (May 25, 26, 28, and 30), and Frankenstein'ed them into a TSRTS/HWTWW style bootleg. Most songs feature parts from multiple nights, to provide a literal "best of" (IMO). What varies from somewhat lackluster to decent concerts, conglomerates into a super show of sorts. Any thoughts/critiques? Please don't hold back. If you hate parts of it, let me know. Curious as to how I did! (I also have an Earl's Court 1975 on my channel, but I eventually want to redo that)
