  1. Hoping to hear mention of Jimmy, or better yet, a few seconds of video showing him at work, on tomorrow night's episode. (hopefully it will be better than this stupid teaser): http://www.pbs.org/opb/historydetectives/video/8_behind_scenes.html
  2. CAN'T leave out the opening of When the Levee Breaks. The middle isn't too shabby either, except I wished Robert didn't fade out the way he does while Jimmy keeps playing. I guess Robert needed to catch his breath before the next verse.
  3. From what I remember, Frampton Comes Alive was hot.. From Wikipedia: "The album reached number one on the Billboard 200 the week ending April 10, 1976 and was in the top spot for a total of 10 weeks. It was the best-selling album of 1976, selling over 6 million copies in the U.S. and became the best-selling live album of all time. Frampton Comes Alive! was voted "Album of the year" in the 1976 Rolling Stone readers poll." Just the other day, for the first time in years, I heard "Do You Feel Like We Do" in the car. Got home and listened to it in the driveway to hear the whole thing. Certainly not Zeppelin, but what a fun song.
  4. Now that I'm on Christmas vacation and it's snowing out, I have some time on my hands. I want to Rip my Zeppelin DVD, SRTS, and Page/Plant Unledded DVD's to audio tracks. I'd like them have them in AAC (ipod), WMA (phone), and MP3 (gps) formats. What software do you prefer using, and why? Thanks!
  5. [iIRC]... A few months back, the documentary "The House that Ahmet built" was shown on PBS. During the Zeppelin-era of the program, Robert and Ahmet are talking while they are watching clips of ALS at Knebworth (really intense segments of the song). Robert mentions to Ahmet that a girlfriend was watching the concert on TV when he got up to leave for a minute. She stopped him saying, "Don't you leave me alone with that music!". Smiling, Robert nudges Ahmet and says "What a really great line, huh?". [/iIRC] She knew there was something visceral/primal about that recording.
  6. btdt.. Page/Plant. At least Percy got the courtesy of an invite (this time around), which is more than I can say for Jonesy (last time around).
  7. And its been "In Through the Out Door"ed, too.
  8. Can't say enough about "Babe". Especially the first time he sings the chorus. Starting at about ~2:08... Jimmy is soflty plucking on the acoustic, while a single background note slowly builds/ascends, then at ~2:22, Robert belts out the chorus' first "Baaabe", where the end of the word has this sharp upward hook that is so strong and in control - he just plain nails it!! I don't want to spoil the mood, but I understand Robert looked up to Elvis quite a bit, and this upward hook-thing, just reminds me of the control he (Elvis) had with his voice. I wonder if Robert had any sort of emulation in mind when he hit that word?
  9. I've always been curious why the back cover photo on LZ III shows Robert in a "tinted" color, whereas the other mates are black and white (see photo below). What is the significance of the norse-style cross that he is wearing (as it's tinted a different color than everything else in the photo)? I presume it has something to do with the Viking imagery of the Immigrant Song. (Hopefully you won't blast me, but yes, I did do a search both here and Wikipedia before posting these questions). Thanks.
  10. and some solo stuff too.. .. it could happen ..
  11. "Down by the seaside. See the boats go sailin' " "Carry me down to the sea Carry me down where they're waiting for me That's where I want to be That's where it all comes around Watching the ships pass by me Friendships and small ships and hardships and dreams That's where I want to be Here where it all comes around"
  12. Unlike those songs that mezmerize you, what songs, chorus, or even a single line, do find yourself singing along with every time you hear Robert sing? Here's a few of mine (actual lyrics are optional): - Your Time is Gonna Come ("Made up mind, breakin this time won't be so fine, it's my turn to cry.."). - Out on the tiles ("All I need from you, is all your love, all you gotta give to me, is all your love"). - Kashmir ("Tryin' to find, the way I feeeeeeeelllllll"). - Misty Mountain Hop ("So I'm packin' my bags for the Misty Mountains, over the hills where the spirits fly... OOO OOO OOO OOO, OOO OOO OOO OOO OOO OOO OOO... I really don't know, oh, oh..". You get the idea..
  13. Tangerine is another that brings up these feelings, but IGC has a different, solemn tone. I don't know how much of that is because I know it's the last song on the last album (LSOTLA). Tea for One is another that just fits as an ending song. I have always like IGC - it's got so much class.
  14. (A bit OT). The boys left many a flub on their studio albums... I love it, they're human. Here's a few that come to mind.. - Robert catching his breath at the beginning of GTC. - Cough at the end of IMTOD. - Airplane at the beginning of Black Country Woman. - Phone ringing on The Ocean (1:35 to 1:45 range). - Little mis-cue at the beginning of Tangerine. - (This one sounds like a flub but isn't).. during the guitar solo on ITE, at 4:00, it sounds like the wheels are gonna come off, then Jimmy pulls it through (reminds me of O2 D&C). I guess "flub" is a poor choice of words, because some are just a little extra leading/trailing tape that made it onto the albums (i.e. the counting at the beginning of Hotdog).
