  1. I’ve got the 2-13-96 Tokyo and 2-17-96 Nagoya matrix boots, but can’t for the life of me find the 2-15-96 Osaka matrix.  I’ve tried making my own from the SBD and AUD sources, but aligning the two sources is a lot harder than you’d think.  Anybody know where I can find the Osaka matrix?  It’s my favorite Page/Plant show ever, and I’ve heard a ton of them.

    I only have the original. Didn’t realise there was a second release with the Rain Song. Thanks for the info - I’ll have to check it out. Acoustic version I presume? The acoustic version from the Japan (95/96?) tour is brilliant 


    The red cover is how you tell it’s the 2004 expanded version.  And yes, “The Rain Song” is acoustic, and sounds fantastic.

    I definitely think Walking in to Clarksdale could use a serious remastering. It's good that it's honest sounding but Page's guitar tracks tend to sound a little too distant. Just my opinion of course

    Agreed - but it also needs to be remixed.  Robert Plant’s vocals are way too dry on WiC, if you ask me.  While it’s not the masterpiece everyone hoped for, there are some songs on it I really love, I’d love to see a re-release.

    But what we really need from the Page/Plant era is an official live release from the two tours.  I’d settle for a nice compilation from the ‘96 Japan shows.

  4. It wasn’t just expanded in 2004 - it was also remixed, and sounds much better.  Problem is the 2004 version leaves off “Thank You”, but on the plus side it has “The Rain Song”.  I consider the 2004 version far superior to the original.

    But I don’t listen to that version anymore - I ripped the 24bit files from the DVD and listen to it on my FLAC player, and it has all the songs, and in hi res, so that’s the way to go really if you know how to do it.
