  1. Well so far they've already unearthed one of the MSG '75 gigs (a big show), one from MSG '77 (a big show), Seattle '75 (big show), the complete Landover '77 run. You don't class those as "good stuff"? Jeez...years ago all we has was the 'Destroyer' soundboard. I'm quite sure that eventually Pontiac will turn up (assuming the tape still exists), together with some or all of that LA Forum '77 run & the other Seattle'75.
  2. Well all these people who enjoy dissing boot companies better think on. If it wasn't for EVSD stumping up to release these things, they would likely never see the light of day. I'm looking forward to seeing what they come up with after the Landover releases.
  3. Well seeing as these '77 boards have now started to pop out of the woodwork again, I wouldn't discount anything.
  4. Hmm...one of the few Godfather releases I haven't picked up. Might have to look into that. The second half of the show is still rather crummy though!
  5. Well...as the venerable Knebby is fond of saying, "There is a space to be watched, so watch it". Full catalogue reissue programme beginning in 2013, mark my words.
  6. We'll see the Zeppelin catalogue remastered & reissued first before any 'beat the boots' type projects.
  7. Slightly off-topic perhaps, but I would strongly advise you to seek out the title called 'The Maximum Destroyer' (EVSD)for the Cleveland soundboard. 'The Supreme Destroyer' is just nowhere near as good, in terms of the sound quality. In fact, it's night & day.
  8. The second night from MSG 77 (8th June) is horrible. In fact there are some parts in which it's very difficult to make out the band at all. Hampton 70 is also a tough listen.
  9. 25 pages is a lot to wade through! My twopenneth - it's a tribute band. A tribute band made more special by the inclusion of Bonham Jnr. From what I've seen so far on clips and so on, it looks & sounds great. If this show was to make it over the pond to Europe, I would happily go along & enjoy every bloody minute of it. I guess the bottom line is that if hurts you to see Jason & band playing tribute to his father & his band, then stop moaning or don't go. Simples!
  10. Hey there! :-)

    Us Capricorns need to stick together. Hope you're having a good weekend.

  11. Thanks Knebby (& others). Really enjoying this thread!
  12. Ah, I really miss the Mayfair. A wonderful venue - I'm sure a pair of my shoes were still stuck to the floor when it was closed.
  13. It appears that Godfather Records are talking to the Japanese too, so I'll be curious to see what comes out of that. Great label!
  14. Personally I'm a big fan of May 14th 1973 (New Orleans). A definite underrated cracker!
  15. OK, well I'll see your Billy Joel and raise you a Celine Dion. Stitch that, mofos!
  16. Ah come on, lay off Billy! He might be middle of the road/whatever but he's penned some cracking tracks. It doesn't help his cause that he's constantly referred to as "The American Elton John", which is enough to make anyone hurl themselves off a tall building. He's way better than that. Oh, and he's an ugly shortarse who managed to shag Christie Brinkley. At least give him a bit of credit for that!
  17. It's funny this thread cropped up now - I was only playing a Rainbow compilation in the car today. Although my favourite line-ups included RJD & Cozy, I was very pleasantly suprised at how good some of the stuff with Joe Lynn Turner was. "Stone Cold" (as mentioned earlier) stood out as a highlight. I'm a bit gutted I never got to see Rainbow (in any incarnation), even though I was fortunate to catch the classic Mk II line-up of Purple at Knebworth & later at Birmingham NEC. Never did get Blackmore's Night, although that's obviously another side of the man in black's playing...
  18. That's it - thanks for assisting my addled old memory!
  19. Incidentally, wasn't there supposed to have been some sort of loose Page/Martin collaboration at some point, even if it was a loose studio jam? I'm sure I read that somewhere, unless it was some sort of weird Zepcentric dream I had!
  20. ^ I was just thinking the same, and if that is 1978 Page looks awfully well! Incidentally, the bloke in the photograph wearing the white suit - Lionel Bart?
  21. You are Lord Jagged/Dark Star and I claim my £10!

    Still hoping to make the London knees-up if the date coincides with me being in the smoke.

    When is it again?

    Cheers

    Chris
