  1. Well, compare the "Stairway" mix we got on the companion disc to the album--not worlds different, sure, but quite a bit rougher and with those extra guitar flourishes that were mixed out on the album but that Page would play live.
  2. Hard to say if "Rock and Roll" will be a "snoozefest." I think it might be more interesting than the previously released mix, just because I think that one must date to sometime around the final album mixing sessions in London (since it sounds so close to the album) whereas a Sunset mix might be vastly different. And come on, that backing track of "Friends" was amazing.
  3. The stellar remastering work was the reason to buy the sets. The companion music was just gravy--and some of it was the best gravy I've ever heard. We could have had a hell of a lot more if Page hadn't been concerned with only giving us mixes from the period itself.
  4. Hey--that was my point! It's not worth it to me because I'm losing out. I might change my tune once I hear it, but we'll see. I would have gone in for the whole shebang, too...but not now. Re: Winston's...no offence, but if it's done well, it should blow his effort--taking 5.1 audio tracks and remixing/EQing--out of the water.
  5. "Never" is a bad bet. Sales numbers are down markedly from what they were a decade ago.
  6. Working now. This isn't a fair assessment. The 2003 release was brick-walled and the drums clipped--maybe that's been attenuated on this release. I'd hope so. But that is not enough of an incentive for me (and others) to buy something that is musically inferior to what came before.
  7. If you don't think the previous round of remasters were worth it, that's on you.
  8. This actually has me angered. I want to give the lads my money, but not for something that is musically inferior than what we already have. Also, Sam, I don't think the links are working--they all opened iTunes.
  9. Steve, you're a very, very sad human being. Keep your racism and sexism to yourself.
  10. I know someone who could personally refute that claim, at least somewhat. They might not have been into the drug scene, but they had fun if you catch my drift.
  11. Old news -- completely unsubstantiated...not saying we won't get them at some point, but they're a ways off yet. I personally think the BRs are fine, barring a few abysmal edits...clean them up, get rid of the stupid additions -- extra rocks, "No..." -- and I can live with Han shooting simultaneously with Greedo. In other SW news: The new Battlefront game is gorgeous and awesome.
  12. I think the only film that would ever "work" -- and that would meet with the approval of the band, if possible -- would be one that told their story through the music. An album-by-album, song-by-song exploration. Page's best interviews are the ones where people actually ask him about the music -- he lights up and, most importantly, opens up.
  13. I'd be interested in any of the very early LPs...but most of them have only been bettered by later releases/fans who were able to get their hands on the tapes (or close enough).
  14. I think a lot of people have forgotten how good 1977 was in general.
  15. Assuming they were of the quality of the Landover boards, I'd disagree heavily.
  16. That's assuming they have a "choice" in which shows they're sold...and, honestly, they wouldn't want to run out of potential sales too soon/would want to capitalize on sales of iconic shows if they can (e.g., L.A. 75, L.A. 77). At this point it seems the well has dried up...at least for now. The fact that nothing of any substance was released in the past year (during all the hype for the remasters) seems to be rather suggestive.
  17. Was listening to snippet from the 1971.09.24 show earlier. Forty-three years gone...wowza.
  18. Just realized I have something pretty cool in my shared (with my dad) Zeppelin vinyl collection: An early (1971 or 1973) "Porky / Pecko Duck" pressing of IV! I'd never noticed the etchings before, but when I looked at it yesterday...there they were! We can't have spent more than $5 on it at a flea market, and there's only dust on it, so I'm very happy.
