  1. I have a partial page of this spread from Buddy magazine:
  2. As mentioned earlier in this thread, these two photos were also @ Mother Blues. Probably the same night as the Bonzo jam, April 1977.
  3. I posted this jam recently, one that many fans were unaware of: (April 1977, Dallas)
  4. I've posted a couple of new photos from the night at Slip Disc in Bombay 1972: Richard Cole and Robert Plant: A better quality and more complete full frame image of Richard Cole, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant (partially obscured): https://www.ledzeppelin.com/event/october-16-1972
  5. It's a bootleg - even says in the auction that it's an "unofficial pressing".
  6. This is the original image I had for the homepage animation: It's also available on Getty if you need better quality. https://www.gettyimages.ca/detail/news-photo/zeppelin-lz-126-ascending-in-fog-c1924-1933-lz126-was-built-news-photo/463982681
  7. NAMM 2020: John Bonham signature drumsticks debuting at Winter NAMM By MusicRadar Exact spec of Bonzo's original '70s "trees" promised NAMM 2020: In 1964, a then little-known company in Yorkshire, England began producing drumsticks. The Professional Music Company, latterly known as Promuco, initially struggled to break the lucrative US market, until a certain Buddy Rich adopted their sticks. John Bonham was one of the many drummers who then took up Promuco sticks, and quickly had his own specification commissioned. Original Bonham Promuco sticks are still highly sought after, and now you'll be able to get your hands on faithful reproductions of what Bonzo allegedly referred to as his "trees". Initially available from February in the UK thanks to Barnes & Mullins, and then globally through 2020, the sticks will officially debut at NAMM 2020 on 16 January. They're premium hickory sticks made to that exact original specification, down to the legendary ‘acorn’ tip and feature Bonzo's signature logo. You can learn more at the Promuco site here: John Bonham Signature Price: £12.00 Product Code: 19015JB Throughout the 1970s John clung to his Promuco ‘Trees’ and together they created some of the most iconic and celebrated rhythms in rock history. Now, you can own and play these legendary sticks. Crafted from premium Hickory, they’re made to Bonzo’s original dimensions and weight and feature his original signature logo too. Diameter:1.5cm General: Premium Hickory Length:41cm Tip:Wooden

  11. I'm seeing the same glitch. Thanks for letting me know. Will have a tech look into that. Happy New Year!
  12. Resurrecting an old thread.... I do have this on cassette. This album definitely needs a proper re-release.
  13. Robert Plant and Saving Grace, Colne Muni By John Anson @LT_Features Features Editor TO say this was a much anticipated gig would be something of an understatement. Robert Plant, yes, the Robert Plant in the unlikely surroundings of Colne Muni with his new band - who could fail not to be impressed? Certainly not a single member of the sold out audience who witnessed something truly special. Saving Grace are the latest in a series of musical projects into which the former Led Zeppelin singer thrown himself wholeheartedly into in recent years following on from The Band of Joy and the Sensational Shapeshifters. Anyone expecting raucous versions of Whole Lotta Love or Black Dog were in for a disappointment. The wonder of Wolverhampton has moved on and he's making the music he wants to - and every credit to him for that. As ever he has surrounded himself with a musical collective of the highest order - singer Suzy Dian, Tony Kelsey on guitar and mandolin, Matt Worley on banjo and guitar and percussionist Oli Jefferson. Together they created something truly magical at the Muni. With a stage set up almost like a recording studio - Persian rug on the floor, a multitude of instruments lying within easy reach - this was an intimate evening of the highest order. This was a night of genuine roots music - early blues, Appalachian mountain music, folk-inspired traditional songs, tunes captured in the early field sound recordings. What was great was the sheer enjoyment Robert Plant got from performing the songs and from the playing of his musical partners. For someone who, let's face it is a musical legend, he was just so humble, often contenting himself with playing the role of backing singer, maraca shaker or simply spectator as his ensemble wove their sonic tapestry around us. But when he did put himself centre stage it was a treat to behold. That voice is still as distinctive as ever and his harmonies with Suzy Dian were just perfect. From the traditional Cindy I'll Marry You to a cover of Moby Grape's It's a Beautiful Day Today, the setlist spanned the decades and for the audience it was like being given the opportunity to open the most perfect advent calendar with a real treat behind every window. Highlights, of which there were many, included the complete silence from the audience which greeted many of the songs, so spellbound were they by what we on offer; the hauntingly beautiful four-part harmonies and Robert Plant's easy grace. He was clearly having a ball - and so were we. "Well it beats staying in," he quipped at one stage. It certainly did! https://www.thelancasterandmorecambecitizen.co.uk/news/18107099.robert-plant-saving-grace-colne-muni/
  14. John Paul Jones is going to be performing a solo concert as part of Big Ears Festival (as well as the already announced performance with Anssi Karttunen as Sons of Chipotle). John will present a set of grand piano, mandolin and electronics, in an improvised solo performance responding only to the sounds and textures that emerge.

  15. About eight or so years ago, I had the videos streaming locally on his site. Back then, YouTube wasn't anything like it is is now. On the newer site, a bit afterwards, we just uploaded those old video files for the new official RP YouTube channel. You can get the promo videos on the bonus DVD in the Nine Lives box set. They're DVD quality, though not yet available in HD resolution.
  16. I remember seeing this photo. It was posted on the forum in 2012 in this thread: Originally black & white, the artificial colorization makes it look fake. It's from the European tour, March 1973.
  17. I heard an old audience recording of that show. Is that when they played 'Back In the USSR'? Hard to tell who is onstage on the tape.
