  1. Yowza!!! On fire!!!!!!!!!! Thank you!!!!!
  2. July 17, 1973 Seattle, WA US Seattle Center Coliseum Rock and Roll, Celebration Day, (Bring It On Home intro) Black Dog, Over the Hills and Far Away, Misty Mountain Hop, Since I've Been Loving You, No Quarter, The Song Remains the Same, Rain Song, Dazed and Confused (incl. San Francisco), Stairway to Heaven, Moby Dick, Heartbreaker, Whole Lotta Love (incl. Let That Boy Boogie), The Ocean Great, great performance!! Very solid for '73.
  3. Last concert from the U.S. '75 tour. And this is a MONSTER of a performance. Absolute MONSTER. Right up there with Seattle '75 and probably one of the top 3 performances from the entire U.S. '75 tour. Plant sounds pretty darn good for the grand finale and Page is on fire throughout. Bonham drums with ferocious power and Jones holds it all together with steady keyboards and bass. I don't think there was a superior live rock act in '75 that matched the power and intensity of this particular performance. For all you '75 naysayers, your loss! This gig rocks FOREVER!!!!!!!!!

  5. Man, just got finished cranking TU from March 19, '75 Vancouver! IT ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Crank this puppy UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My ears are shot but it was worth it.......
  6. Don't have a favorite No Quarter but almost any version from '75 suits me just fine. NQ is performed normally under the 20 minute mark and it's length is just perfect. Not too long (as in '77) and not too short (as in '73). 1975 is just right. Too bad Page can't find one multitrack from '75 to release commercially (in it's entirety). Heck, Earl's Court is the definitive '75 performance (next to LA and Seattle).
  7. The two biggest WARTS of the '77 tour were: The drum solo segment the "guitar solo" segment Now Jimi may have been smacked out at various times during the '77 tour but it was these ridiculous mind-numbing solos/segments that were utterly and entirely UNECESSARY! Zep had the chance to play NEW MATERIAL. And all they attempted was Ten Years Gone, NFBM, a folk song from the 2nd album and what else? The '77 tour would have really kicked ass if the band had bothered to try out tunes like, In your life and a few others from Presence. What about Wanton Song?? There are so many other cool riffs and tunes that Page composed and the band never bothered to try them live. It's just a shame. Bonham was no better a drummer in '77 than he was in '75 or prior to that. Page was no better a guitarist in '77 than in '75 (and in '77 he was hampered by a smack addiction). So we get the boring drum solo from Bonham and the obnoxious sounding guitar sound theatrics of Page (and in some audience tapes you can hear the crowd getting restless for more music and less guitar BS from Page). If the band had shelved both solos and instead added at least THREE new songs from either Presence or PG, '77 would have absolutely been a PRIMO year for live zep. Instead, what we really get is LA '77 (truly the best and most inspired of the entire tour, Cleveland, April 28 comes a close second) and the rest of the tour which is OK overall, but falls short because of those obnoxious solo segments and just not enouch new material performed. Sorry, it's the truth. My truth anyway. :-)
  8. HTWWW is superior to SRTS soundtrack. Page really butchered the latter, made way too many edits and it takes away from the enjoyment of the show, even with the improved sound quality. HTWWW also has edits but they aren't as damaging. Page is just too anal for his own good. And it's too bad for fans...
