  1. I believe these were in late September 1985. The one in Spain aired on Sept. 24th, 1985. It's a shame the only available pro-shot footage of this tour is lip-syncd TV appearances.
  2. JOHN PAUL JONES SIGNATURE BASS UPDATE September 9, 2020 MANSON GUITAR WORKS, IN COLLABORATION WITH JOHN PAUL JONES, ARE DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE UPDATED SPECS FOR THE JOHN PAUL JONES SIGNATURE BASS, THE FLAGSHIP E-BASS MODEL. The biggest change in the 2021 edition is the adoption of USA Aguilar pickups and circuits. Featuring twin DCB humbuckers equipped with dual ceramic magnets and 42 gauge Formvar wire, the pickups feed into Aguilar’s legendary OPB-2 preamp (offering +/-18dB of boost and cut at 40Hz and +/- 16dB of treble boost and cut at 6.5 kHz) giving clean headroom, improved dynamics and a uniform magnetic field across the whole tonal spectrum. The combined effect of this upgrade now gives the John Paul Jones signature E-Bass all of the headroom and adjustability expected, together with additional harmonic balance and extra growl. As well as electronics upgrades, the John Paul Jones Signature E-Bass is now available with a ‘Luthiers Choice’ maple top option; a striking figured piece of wood that has more depth and intensity over the standard figuring.. A new Satin Black Transparent finish, producing not only boutique style looks but also a different feel from the neck and body compared to the gloss Vintage Sunburst finish, is also new to the line. President of Aguilar Pickups Dave Boonshoft commented on the winning combination. “Satisfying a legendary musician like John Paul Jones requires a bass that brings both the thunder and the character of a great musical instrument. Adrian and his crew at Manson are doing just that, and we’re super excited that MGW and John Paul Jones have chosen Aguilar pickups and preamps for their new line of basses.” Beyond the specs lives a bass ready for concert, session or studio work; the final word belongs to John Paul Jones, after months of in depth testing in all the above arenas; “I’m very happy with my new Aguilar pickups, they give me the power that I want and the definition and warmth that I need.” Order here: https://bit.ly/3jUPLdE https://www.johnpauljones.com/john-paul-jones-signature-bass-update/ JPJ_Tease_Vid.mp4
  3. It was definitely scheduled (there's an ad/flyer for this gig), but as nobody seems to remember it taking place, I'd say it most likely did not.
  4. These dates are real. They're in Greg Russo's book & also have ads. They began circulating a few weeks ago from the master reels and are certainly worth hearing. The 1967 show may have already been circulating in poorer quality. I think I had it on cassette a long time ago, when I used to do the Yardbirds official site... will try to find it to compare.
  5. New Jimmy Page Editions Now OnlinE Following on from the recent subscriber announcement of Jimmy Page: The Anthology Portfolio, we are delighted to confirm the addition of two new prints in the series. Personally selected by Jimmy Page from the images taken under his art direction for the sold out limited edition book, Jimmy Page: The Anthology, the stunning prints feature two of his most iconic guitars, 'Double Neck Army' and 'Black Beauty, 1960 & 2007'. Completing this set of five museum quality prints are: 'Latter Days Yardbirds, Early Days Led Zeppelin'; 'Dragon' Telecaster & Violin Bow' and 'Les Paul 'Number One'. Presented as large-format archival prints in editions of only 75 numbered copies, each print is signed by Jimmy Page. To select your choice of print, available with or without framing, click here.
  6. Looking forward to the full 3/24 SBD. I've been asked by some fans.... There were several other SBDs from the Minneapolis batch: 1) Knebworth 8-11-79 (near complete), 2) 1980 tour rehearsal (Victoria Theater) full set / typical set list, 3) 90min tape of Maryland 77 (date not specified), first part of show. The full Minneapolis SBD setlist from that source was listed as: Rock and Roll Sick Again Over the Hills & Far Away When the Levee Breaks The Song Remains the Same The Rain Song Kashmir Wanton Song (incomplete) No Quarter Trampled Underfoot Moby Dick In My Time of Dying Stairway to Heaven Black Dog (I'm guessing with WLL intro) --

THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME (Peter Clifton, Joe Massot, 1978 / 137 mins / PG) Filmed in 1973 over the course of a three-night stand at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, this concert film shows Led Zeppelin at the apogee of their hard-rocking glory. In addition to featuring such indelible hits as “Dazed and Confused,” “Whole Lotta Love” and “Stairway to Heaven,” the live footage is interspersed with elaborate fantasy sequences, backstage shenanigans and a glimpse of what the business side of such a large touring operation entails. https://riotheatretickets.ca Rio Theatre 1660 East Broadway Vancouver BC V5N 1W1
  14. This was the song list given for side 1 of the soundboard tape and had a pic of the cassette, a Maxell c-120 Rock and Roll Sick Again Over the Hills & Far Away When the Levee Breaks The Song Remains the Same The Rain Song Kashmir Wanton Song Apparently, this was about $
  15. Levee is intact. This is from info years ago about these tapes first being floated around. (I don't have them) Wanton was specified as cut about half-way, likely a tape flip as these were c-120 cassettes.
  16. Not the samples, I mean that source doesn't have a complete Wanton Song. It's about 2 hours but Wanton is incomplete. You're probably right about that bootleg.
  17. Wanton Song on that original soundboard source is incomplete, only about half.
