  1. sometime ago , 7th October 2008 , plomerus , a regular contributor on matters floyd to the collectorsmusicreviews site , set out expertly a list of essential floyd concerts and relative bootlegs . he discussed reasons for selecting the concerts and identified at that time best sounding boots . he then went on to itemise concerts / boots that just failed to make the grade . it is a terrific article . written by someone highly knowledge of his subject and therefor commanding respect . there followed a number of interesting comments from floyd collectors discussing the pro and cons of concerts pl
  2. i appreciate I am straying somewhat , but anyway , following on from the last comment , has page / plant / jones ever publicly stated why they have not released soundboards ? I dont have any grateful dead output but thoroughly enjoy king crimson live releases . although i was somewhat concerned when tarantura released as a bootleg a copy of such a crimson release .
  3. good evening autumn moon I think matters would be resolved if someone were able to put side by side one vinyl form the original release and one from swinging pig .... or maybe not put simply swinging pig did release a copy but how do you tell them apart . suffice to say I got my set privately from an exemplary source who said it was one of the original sets ( no 77 ) and I believe I have the original but ... as I said doesnt really matter
  4. steve thank you for that . i have seen that picture . so the swinging pig outer case is more or less identical to the original . same labelling etc . and as far as i can make and out and unlike swinging pig titles there is no swinging pig label on the outer case . the splash coloured vinyl is not dissimilar to the original . I think I have now worked out which version I have . not that it really matters . the set is wonderful . a throw away comment on sound quality . purely personal of course . latest zep lp memory frozen forever / casino records . I have various cd versions of t
  5. thank you for taking the time to reply if you refer to the led zeppelin database and under the vinyl section look up the final option , the contributor refers to a swinging pig release in 2007 now that is a chap who knows his onions but try as I might and I have tried repeatedly I cannot find a reference anywhere to the swinging pig release so much so I am beginning to doubt that there was such a release taking your closing comment I prefer to play lps and have a lot of zep boots . lps imho sound better . even older boot lps eg original eddie sound as good current eddie
  6. There is the original release 148 x 70 lps and 2 x 72 lps . I am referring obviously to the Final Option . Now I have seen lots of pictures of this set . Then I read years ago that The Swinging Pig label issued a copy . Try as I might I have never seen a picture of the Swinging Pig issue . When I tried checking online the usual pictures of the original release appear . So my questions are - a ) did Swinging Pig release a copy of the original ? b ) anyone reading this do they have the Swinging Pig set and if so can they provide some pictures c ) how do you tell the difference
  7. i purchased a basic linn sondek lp 12 in 1982 basically starved myself slept on floors of friends flats thereby saved university grant money . I still have it and over the years invested in various of the upgrades . turntable is very important . rest of my hifi is pretty good kit . led zep 11 / rl is best sounding bar none . I have the classic records set . physical is unplayable . it is boomy . just terrible . page's latest reissue is better sounding . in fact i prefer to play page's latest reissues over the classic versions . obviously just my opinion . interestingly I still have my origin
  8. oooft line 5 should have read........ what I do not understand is why people etc
  9. everyone is entitled to their opinion . my first concert was purple / burn tour at glasgow apollo . I was a regular attender at apollo though 70s and early 80s . so I saw everybody and more than once ( except zep but did manage '07 ) . for live albums in my opinion following are all great who / leeds , purple / japan , acdc / if you want blood , zep / htwww ( and now 4 lp version of tsrts ) nugent / gonzo , priest / unleashed in east , elp / welcome , yes / yessongs , genesis / seconds , allmans / fillmore , stones / ya yas .... but there are some live albums by great groups that suck eg sabs
