  2. 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?
  4. 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.
  5. Never stopped him from working with David Coverdale, did it?
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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).
  10. 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.
  11. This show was the impetus for me starting the underappreciated shows thread
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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).
  15. You hear that, Grant Burgess? You've got your task for the next ZepFest. Get moving!
  16. It's been done before. It was called Outrider.
  17. First I heard/taped: BBC sessions from '69 and '71 from a radio station. Still have that tape. First (of many) I bought: Coming Back On The Murder Stage - 4/27/77 in Cleveland.
  18. That site is completely wrong. First off, the soundcheck with the 50s songs has never been firmed up as to its exact date. However, I've never heard Atlanta mentioned. It's either been from Chicago '73 or Minneapolis '75. The Another Trip booklet lists it as Chicago 7/6/73. The NYC stuff, according to my Another Trip booklet, is from the July 29, 1973 show at Madison Square Garden. Essentially, it's the raw version of what ended up on The Song Remains The Same. For my money, the 70-72 disc would have been a better get. It mostly has a bunch of stuff from one of the best boots of that era - the legendary Blueberry Hill show of 9/4/70 in LA - with Friends from Osaka and Moby Dick from the Toronto board, along with the no vocals outtake of No Quarter and the acoustic outtake of The Rover. The '79-80 one is really good as well, with a great mix of stuff - Hot Dog from the first Knebworth show, then the rest from the 80 soundboards, ending with the last song they played - Whole Lotta Love from 7/7/80 in Berlin. Just a great box set that was executed in the manner which Page had always talked about doing himself.
  19. Weren't people at another site kicking around the possible existence of the Pittsburgh '75 show existing, potentially even as a sbd? Was that pure BS or is that a legit rumor?
  20. It doesn't. Completely different reference all together - Slater making the bong in shop class says: "Man, I ain't belivin' that shit about Bonham's 1-hour drum solo...I mean, 1 hour on drums...you couldn't handle that shit on strong acid, man."
  21. Orlando's very good, but LA '73 is hands down the best. Here's hoping a board tape of that show somehow pops up in the next few years, because that entire show is orgasmic...culminating in a stratospheric Thank You.
  22. Pardon the accidental double post. Mods, please delete.
