  1. Many thanks for posting this! ADK-Zeppelin
  2. Where can we find this matrix? ADK-Zeppy
  3. I agree. It was difficult to distinguish between all of your samples. Did you take notes of your own observations or was it difficult for you also? Between #2 and #4, I would still vote #4 and it's because upon multiple listening, I do think it has more presence......seems more “alive” ADK-Zeppy
  4. I'm very happy that I discovered this performance...keep wishing that AI technology will someday transform these videos in to today’s HD or 4K and bring some “real magic” to the screen. John M. “MAGIC is a word I use many times to describe Page's playing; even his “sloppy” efforts. I have yet to hear another player that can be as expressive and make the guitar such an integral part of a song. That's in the hands of a “sorcerer” in my book! ADK-Zeppy
  5. Plant and Page “When The World Was Young”. Not really Zeppelin, but quite the haunting melody, nevertheless. ADK-Zeppy
  6. Thank you for posting these files. I voted #4, but it's not too easy picking one out in particular. Did you manage to make notes as to what (if any) changes you made between each of the 6? ADK-Zeppy
  7. Chris, thank you for posting all of these to this thread. They all look very inviting and highly interesting to me as I've never been to Britain; although my ancestors came from Hampshire for the Plymouth Bay Colony in 1630 on the ship James. Your photos create a wonderful atmosphere of that area. ADK-Zeppo
  8. A question about this: I did receive the whole performance and am listening to it. It's remarkably good quality. What specifically do you do in the remastering to get it to sound so good? ADK-Zeppy
  9. This sounds good to me. Please forward me a link to the show? ADK-Zeppy
  10. Yes, I would agree that it would be a miracle, but even if Jimmy sat for a critique of that performance in 2007 would be (for me) interesting. He did do something like that when revealing some thoughts about a Stairway recording that's up on YouTube. ADK-Zeppy
  11. I missed the 12th anniversary night, but the video is on my tablet and tonight I will steep myself in that performance again. It would be instructive if a producer got Page and Plant and maybe JPJ to sit for an interview and critique from the three of them as they are watching the video of some selected songs from that actual performance; just to see what choice comments they all would opine about. Call it a reunion of the reunion of 2007. ADK-Zeppy
  12. Jimmy Page was the type of player who after getting his parts down on a studio session where mistakes can be done over then proceed to playing live on stage in Zeppelin where it is music on the fly, cannot be expected to hit every note exact; every performance. I'm thinking of Page in his solo on Immigrant Song in Sydney AU that has been memorialized on film. His playing at one point “outside” and some might think he's hit wrong notes. I think he was trying to get outside the harmony and realized in an instant that he'd better draw back to the song's key and finish his solo spot. That was the Page that was not afraid to try something new live, but not wish to put its own on tape. During Zeppelin's performance era (68/69 to 79/80) most of people living then had never seen Led Zeppelin and an untold number never knew what they name meant. Their collective “Zep” experience was through recordings played over the world's radio networks or actually having possession of their recordings. Experiencing LED Zeppelin via that medium is in stark contrast to actually attending a Zeppelin performance live. The live experience was more “spectical” such as seeing opera live; where the entire event and it's surroundings is a whole other experience than just recorded audio. I think examining Jimmy's playing live might be (for some) sometimes be a let down and other times just the opposite. For myself, I would accept it and then remember that I'm witnessing up close the musicians who actually recorded those earth-shaking tones and accept it for what it was. ADK-Zeppy
  13. “Immigrant Song”! I don't think that I initially liked that on first hearing. Over time, I consider it one of my “go to” songs for the essence of Zeppelin. Authors have quoted specs of the lyrics in their writings. TV and radio use snippets of the opening measures of it as”lead-ins” to programming segments. When Page goes into that guitar free form part of his solo, I hear elements of Jazz improvising which sometimes he accomplishes and not very well in other instances. For me, I hear this song on several levels. ADK-Zeppy
  14. Rock music and music in general today is in my opinion, just background for our busy lives. The world today in the 21st. century offers so many more diversions that music is now competing for attention from the masses. I wonder if a Zeppelin type organization could even get started today given the attention spans of the media, the music distribution apparatus, the absence of creativity, and the intense concentration on watching the bottom line in any business today. Whether 2019 produces a Zeppelin discovery or not, I'll continue to listen to and appreciate them. I read their biographies, listen to the bootlegs available and marvel at what Zeppelin accomplished; knowing that it probably won't be repeated anytime soon. The music I listen to from Zeppelin I regard as “historical documents” that are now part of the history of music which constantly evolves, like it or not. ADK-Zeppy
  15. Ringo never got too much credit for his drumming skills and even some downright bashing for it, but if you took him from the Beatles it would not be the Beatles any longer. Besides the attraction to Zep's iconic songs, many Zep followers were attracted to the on-stage interplay between Bonham's drumming and Page's playing; the bookend being Plant's voice playing off of Page's guitar.......with JPJ providing that huge floor underneath so that no one would fall through.
