  1. 9.14.71 has always been my favorite. Robert is so on form, and Jimmy's solo is superb. Love the TSRTS version too.
  2. Would love the link if you are still sending it. Thanks in advance!:)
  3. Bit of a long shot maybe but just wondering if anyone has a recording of the 3.20.88 show at the Birmingham Powerhouse, UK? I know that a decent AUD exists somewhere cos I picked it up on cassette at a record fair in '88 but later let it go. I was at this show aged 17 and would love to here it again. It was a magic evening and a fine performance. Scoured the interweb for it but no luck so far. Hope this request is ok and thanks in advance for any responses.
  4. Thanks so much for your quick response. Looking forward to giving this one a proper listen over the next few days!
  5. Thanks for replying. This turned up some links but all of them dead unfortunately.
  6. I'm am little late to the party but would really appreciate the links if you're still sending them. The sample sounds really special! Thank you.
  7. Got hold of the 10.1.98 Lakefront Arena, New Orleans show recently. This show has unbelievable energy and incredible performances by both P and P, and the whole band. Just wondering if anyone has FLACs for this and might be kind enough to share? I have a Youtube rip right now and would love an upgrade though can't find one anywhere online. Even MP3s at 320 kbps would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  8. They nail it very nicely in the HTWWW DAC. Seattle '75 has a good one too.
  9. Agreed, can't understand why there isn't more of a buzz about this. An incredible show in quality I never thought was possible for a boot. The whole band are killing it here. This will be my 'go-to' '75 show for a long time to come.
  10. Uniondale 2/14/75. Great versions of TUF, NQ and STH. Nice solid show. SBD has clear and prominent bass. Can happily listen to JPJ for 3 hours!
  11. The day of Live Aid stands large in my memory. It happened to be my 15th birthday and a beautiful sunny day in England where I grew up. Main memories where an incredibly good feeling all day; everyone talking about it, watching it, being part of it, and hearing it playing everywhere. The music? Well, as we all know Queen absolutely killed it in their early evening set. Still the perhaps the most audacious and charismatic 20 mins of live music ever. That day was the first time i saw the members of Led Zeppelin playing. Despite the ragged performance I instantly felt there was something very special about these people and remember being very dismayed when a friend told me their drummer had died 5 years earlier and that this band were no more. Got hold of a copy of ZepII quite soon after and have been hooked for the last 32 years.
  12. Thank you Strider. Not since poring over Dave Lewis's books in my youth have I felt any piece of writing take me so far inside the experience of seeing Led Zeppelin live.
  13. And Jimmy was planning to record some of these shows!
  14. Totally agree about preferring the mellower '73 Plant. His vocals on HTWWW are often a tough listen. '77 is my favourite year for him, so much power and command. Interesting point about the visuals. True, when I hear the TSRTS version of Stairway I do automatically think of the mirrorball, the double-neck, the yellow spotlights etc, and it does enhance the music. Got me wondering how our perception of the HTWWW shows might be different if we had pro-footage to go with them.
  15. Thank you for this technical info. I would be interested to hear your view on the actual result of Caveman's work. To my ears, like I said, HTTTW sounds over-processed and unnatural. Bonzo's drums, for example, sound super-charged in a way that falsifies his actual sound rather than enhances it. For me, I want to hear what Bonzo actually played on those nights as he was a master at getting the sound that he wanted from his kit, rather than a sound-engineer's adjustments decades later, but perhaps I am ignorant of the process of making good live records. Having said that, I actually really like the 2007 TSRTS (apart from the edits of course) as it still sounds natural.
