    Long Live Led Zeppelin

    Maybe I am being a little harsh. Hunter did after all mention "RO" as being one of his sources, trouble there is "RO" has a members only area with member exclusive content. In the past "RO" have asked that this exclusive content not be shared anywhere else for a number of reasons partly so that their sources will keep providing more unknown/unheard content. Going back ten years or so there was apoplectic uproar when somebody broke this request and shared samples meant to be "For Free Trade Only" that ended up on a Japanese boot.. The beauty of bootlegs used to be that they were hard to find, almost impossible if you were not in the know, that's what made them magic, there were so few what you got you listened to properly over and over because that's all there was. Nowdays it's download 'em and file 'em away because there are so many of them in the main most of 'em just get a cursory once or twice listen, less even maybe a quick scan review before moving on to the next one.

    I don't agree, all this guy is doing is gathering stuff from here there and everywhere and putting on his own site and trying to gain credit for other peoples work. It's not hard to do what he's doing oneself. Everything on his site is available elsewhere. Plus he has too much mp3 pollution. Personally, I would not thank him for anything.

    Your Turntable

    A digital scale is essential, they're cheap too. My amp has a phono stage so a pre amp is not needed. Get yourself a stylus brush, also for cleaning my stylus I use a small slice of "Magic Eraser" glued to a coin for some extra stylus cleaning (cheap and effective, check out a vid or two on YouTube). Have fun. Oh and don't neglect keeping your records clean.

    New EVSD soundboard?

    75/77 disappointing, (for me). Give me anything 69 to 73 over those years.

    Your Turntable

    Setting up is part of the fun, the tracking weight, the bias, cartridge alignment, the overhang etc, all what you do when you have a decent TT.

    The Final Option vs The Complete EC Tapes

    It's last week compared to 1973 when I bought my first bootleg. I was sort of taking the mickey out of your "Waaaaaaaaaay back" comment.

    The Final Option vs The Complete EC Tapes

    Waaaaaaaay back in 1984 !!! that's "like" last week. [and] fwwiw I use(d) the Zep Art site for my boot CD covers, I'd pick the ones I like(d) the most so for instance an EV might have a Wendy cover. I'm not very particular about matching my downloads to the correct art, this is of course if the download does not come with cover art but these days most do.

    The Final Option vs The Complete EC Tapes

    This is what bootlegs looked like when I was paying for them.

    The Final Option vs The Complete EC Tapes

    Just grab the Torrents to compare and keep your money in your pocket.
  14. You're kidding $100 dollars for an unofficial T-shirt, wow. It looks cheap and nasty, shrunken and misshapen, typical of the majority of unofficial T's of the day.
