  1. I had mentioned the 'minus' piano issue as well when I started my topic as to this mix's early digital release back in September.

    Yes - piano is slightly less prominent - but obviously still there.

    I think the vocal mix is far better than the original, insofar as being louder and more prominent. The guitar mix is definitely different, especially at the song's close - but I really love that the mellotron levels are raised - especially during the 'It is the summer of my smiles' verse.

    Anyone notice the working title for the song in the Super Deluxe edition's book??? And no - 'Slush' wasn't indicated...


  2. The Rain Song isn't quite my favorite song, but throughout all the different live performances and now an alternate studio version it is my second favorite song. I would definitely say this is one of the songs on the companion discs that is better than the original. Plants vocals are amazing here as is Bonzo. Can't wait to hear the remastered original.

    Agreed!

    Plant considers his vocals on TRS his best...


  3. If you preordered the SD Edition of Houses for iTunes like me - it's already in your iTunes library NOW if you've enabled Automatic Downloads, having received the notification/email of release to my iPhone at 2:08 AM EST, Tuesday, 9/30.

    And if The Rain Song is your favorite Zeppelin song like it is for me - you're in Heaven!!!

    Still hearing what I think is piano in places though... But the guitars are brought out more, the separation of sound seems more partitioned - and drums and vocals are crisper, IMO. Magnificent...

    Here's the alternate version & Jimmy's take on it... http://pitchfork.com/news/56883-led-zeppelin-share-alternate-mix-of-the-rain-song/

    (Sorry for the Title Typo)...


  4. Wasn't the band added to censor the kids on the cover?

    Yes, and to simultaneously let people know the name of the band (at the behest of Atlantic)...

    Like the 4th album - it was the band's intention to omit the band's identity from the front and back covers.


  5. Another beautiful tribute to Karac.

    Losing a child must be the worst pain a parent can experience.

    The date of his passing, July 26th is the Birthdate of my youngest Daughter.

    Love and respect to the Plant's

    Happy belated Birthday to your daughter.

    Thank you for the comment.


  6. Another day is ending

    I remember when my world, came falling down

    Out there the stars stop dancing

    Lost in my darkness now, the rain keeps falling down

    Light of my life, where have you gone

    Love's true flame dies, without the warmth of your sun

    Here comes the blue train rollin'

    Across my heart it crawls, the rain still pouring down

    Another day escapes me

    A little later maybe, love will roll around

    Light of my life, where have you gone

    Love's true flame dies, without the warmth of your sun

    I've been waiting on a corner

    Yeah, I've been waiting for a sign now

    Oh, I've been waiting on the corner

    I've been waiting for a sign now, oh, now

    Light of my life, where have you gone

    Love's true flame dies, without the warmth of your sun

    Whistle blowin', blue train rollin', carry my heart, my soul, oh

    Hey Whistle blowin', blue train rollin', carry my darling son

    hey, hey Whistle blowin', blue train rollin', carry my heart

    I've been waiting on a corner

    I've been waiting for a sign now

    Oh, I've been waiting on the corner

    I've been waiting for a sign, now, oh, ooh

    Whistle blowin', blue train rollin'

    Come and carry my, my, my heart now, oh, oh yeah

    I've been standing on a corner

    I've been waiting for a sign now

    Hear the blue train, hear the blue train, oh

    It's the blue train rolling


  7. If the Pittsburgh Steelers get to the Superbowl ... and win it ... it will mean 7 Superbowl wins for the Steelers, which I think is the most any team in the nfl has won.

    they're calling it "stairway to seven"

    and here's my contribution ...

    Cool...

    I'd greyscale the Steelers logo and remove the word Steelers for continuity - and you're there.


  8. There is a new Led Zeppelin app out for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

    This Day in Led Zeppelin lists every gig the band ever played, has a Zeppelin quiz with hundreds of interactive quiz questions, scored out of 10, (the quiz is great fun!), and a whole Zeppelin trivia section.

    It also has a section called Song Notes where it tell's the story behind every Zeppelin studio recording, and the cleaver bit is, it can play your own Zeppelin songs from your iTunes while you read the song notes.

    It also has links to everything Zeppelin.

    Here is the iTunes link:

    Got it - thanks!
