  1. At this stage... it's about their live PRESENCE, together again, under the LZ title, and making History, once again. Everyone more than realizes that time is marching on, and it's been nearly 40 years since the Beginning of Rock.

    They are each gifted enough to work around any limitations. I think the Moment will cloak any shortcomings, IF ANY.

    As Robert so aptly put it... THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME.


  2. Thursday, May 19, 1977, Baton Rouge.

    Got to LSU Assembly Center at 2:00 P.M. (I was a junior in high school at the time.)

    My friends went to party - I sat against the glass doors. My ticket was for the floor and there was no way I was going to forfeit a chance to be close to the stage... By 6:30, I was pressed against the doors, and people were pounding against the building. They let us in under heavy security, and I made it to the stage (separated by steel barricades).

    By 8:45 P.M., they had still not appeared, and by this time with all the pushing and shoving I was about 6 feet back from the stage. Turns out that the cavalcade was tied up in a serious Interstate traffic accident. But then Pagey's opening TSRTS note pierced the place around 9, and until about 12:30 A.M. they were relentless.

    Percy's greeting after Sick Again was 'Baton Rouge! --- Red Stick!!!'

    Later in the show during Going to California in the acoustic set, Plant had to ask the audience to stop hurling those phosphorescent night sticks around and onto the stage... He said something like, "It's rather hard to stand on a hill in a mountain of dreams with those green things flying at you"...

    My highlight was 'Ten Years Gone', my fave song at the time, and Jimmy's Danelectro playing was superb. Being a hardcore Zep fan from before then, I thought his playing was spot-on that night...

    I also remember Robert sitting atop a big Marshall stack and jumping down right after Jimmy's Black Mountain Side segued into Kasmir!!!

    The last song was Achilles Last Stand... I was deafened for the next day or so. The experience is forever burned into my soul!


  3. I was lucky enough to have the honour and pleasure to have done the restoration for this clip (and the extra robbery press conference clip). As a life long Zeppelin fan and devotee, it was an amazing piece of luck on my part to have got involved in the project - it's made my life really!

    The clip's entertaining and the responses Peter Grant and Percy fielded to some pretty stupid questions explains alot about how the band kept their integrity and credibility over the years.

    Long live the Zep!

    Awesome work...

    To be involved with Zep says a lot about your reputation...

    Congrats, and thanks for sharing.


  4. First off, im sorry to offend anyone with this. For the records though...too many people associate this and Page's occult stuff with Satanisim...which could not be further from the truth. Crowley was not a Satanist, it was occultic, and magick, and that stuff. First off, Crowley hated Christianity and took things like Satan in a more mythological sense. And as Plant & Page wrote in their song "Most High"..."David's seed talks through his paper crown" which belittle's Jesus if anything. I don't think they meant any offense towards Christianity either, i dont understand what people mix the occult with real religion. This "one verse" business is just the most clear part of the song, and people concentrate on just that. Listen to the song backwards with the lyrics i posted, you'll probably make out alot of what it is. As far as Robert Denying it...i know that does make for great hype. But Robert also said he'd never do a Zeppelin reunion and guess what...He also said after 1988 he would never sing Stairway, and he did, so....more reflections.

    I didn't mean Robert's denying it makes for great hype; I meant threads like these do (respectfully...).

    And there's a big difference between reneging and lying. I just think if there were real truth to this backwards-masking issue w/ Stairway, he'd man-up about it - at least to some extent, and not dismiss it so thoroughly. I believe he's got way more character and integrity than that.


  5. 47 :watchingyou:

    a led zeppelin collector since ... 15 years? I don't remember

    but a lz fan since 1973 ...

    not ready to die yet :bagoverhead:

    I'm 47 as well...

    Was 17 in '77 when I saw the Band at Baton Rouge's LSU Assembly Center on May 19, 1977...

    6 feet from center stage on the floor, I was literally deafened for 24 hours after the Show.

    One of the greatest experiences of my life.


  6. Can someone please clarify if there is any difference between the remastered (by Jimmy Page) songs on iTunes and the remastered (by Jimmy Page) songs which came out in the early 90s?

    I bought the 4 disc box set in 1990 and the two disc box set in 1993 and I was under the impression that these had been completely remastered. They certainly sound awesome.

    But I am now confused as I hear they have been re-re-mastered! So the question is, should I part with £59 to buy the back catalogue on iTunes?

    Yes.


  7. There's something about a new Zep release, even if it's a very-best-of. I dig seeing the 2007 copyright and it reminds me of my teen years back in the 70's when I was buying the vinyl.

    Not to mention I like the elevated sound.

    My "II" cents...
