    Led Zeppelin live DVD's

    That sounds pretty neat, Ev!

    DVD O2 news?

    Would those 4-5 years he spent playing almost exclusively Zeppelin material with Page qualify as "dabbling" per chance?

    Sunshine Woman

    As far as I can recall, the master tapes for this BBC session were lost. Someone salvaged what we have from the acetate. Someone can confirm this, I'm sure.

    A Zep guitar hero

    Never stopped him from working with David Coverdale, did it?

    When did Led Zep Jump the Shark?

    Honestly, I'd tend to agree with both of those answers. A case could be made for both the Live Aid and Atlantic Records 40th reunions as well. But even ITTOD has moments of sheer musical brilliance that stand out now more than when the album came out and was critically dismissed.

    Long Beach '75 soundboard

    Oh yes, it sounds very VERY good...feels like an almost a frenetic pace compared to the millard recording from the MP3s I'm listening to now.

    The Song Remains the Same

    EDIT already covered
  9. Awesome one in an episode of WKRP In Cincinnati that has all of the albums up to In Through The Out Door on the door to the DJ booth. I think there also was a poster in the hallway of the famous Knebworth group shot in the field.

    Long Beach '75 soundboard

    I loved when Robert sang about these: (It's actually The Wanton Song) But I do agree, a SB of one of those Chicago shows, maybe even Cleveland, would be an AWESOME find. Sadly, Indianapolis in late January to the end of Februrary is pretty rough with Plant's voice (as evidenced by most of the boards that exist between then).

    Best of Led Zeppelin Live

    I have Another Trip, which is similar and was released around the same time, but those two really predates much of the great quality recordings which have come out in the last 15 years. Still, a great concept and excellent execution. The booklet inside Another Trip is well done, as is the box itself. I keep all my CDs together, but I use this box to hold onto all the receipts ... to show myself how much cash I've blown through the years.

    Salt Lake City '73

    This show was the impetus for me starting the underappreciated shows thread

    No Quarter

    Again, if you haven't heard Vancouver 75, I highly recommend you check out Youtube. Kicks in to the craziness around the 4:45 mark.

    Credits from DVD

    No, those in-the-dressing room shots were from Baltimore, not Pittsburgh. However, the scenes of arriving at the airport and driving away with the police escort are all from Pittsburgh ... up until the time when they hit (I believe) the Holland Tunnel and end up in NYC. Also, a lot of Pittsburgh tape ended up in the Travelling Riverside Blues video as well.

    just got my first bootleg CD

    Yes, Robert's vocal condition at the outset of the second leg of the '73 tour -- especially compared to how the first leg finished a month earlier -- was pretty rough. It wasn't great for that entire second leg and had a lot more signs of wearing and tearing in the NYC shows than he did at the end of May and early June from Denver-Salt Lake-San Diego-LA-SF-LA. However, almost all of the stuff on that soundcheck is in a much lower register than the stuff he sang in concert in the 73 shows. Also, he sounds pretty crackly when they do the run-throughs of Wanton Song and Night Flight. It's plausible that it is Chicago. Also, it's possible it's from Minneapolis '75 from the drastic change in weather the band faced in January (poor booking, IMHO).
