  1. Jones and Grohl made a very nice rhythm section indeed. I was at the foot of the stage directly in front of Jones at their DC show at the 9:30 Club. I’ve been going to concerts for 45 years. TCV is one of the very best shows I’ve ever seen. Would love to see them again.
  2. Charlotte 6/9/72 is a good one that has always kind of flown under the radar imo.
  3. I’ve always loved Winterland 4/26/69. One of the great gigs ever imo
  4. Those Copenhagen 79 pics are really cool...on their way to their best post-73 gig...a very nice find!
  5. Always loved Four Sticks, and completely agree with the nods to the Page Plant versions. The Egyptian orchestra was a revelation on that, along of course with the late great Michael Lee. And iirc there’s a nice moment in the “No Quarter” material where Robert mentions the guy who originally wielded the four sticks...
  6. I suspect that if it were just up to Jimmy, a lot of things that haven’t happened would indeed have happened over the years. iirc I’ve read that any potential Zep releases have to be signed off on by all 4 of the respective camps, including of course the R. Plant camp. The RAH show, with of course a couple of glaring omissions, is at least out there in bootleg/download land in excellent sound quality. And that might be all we ever get.
  7. RIP-IT-UP nailed it way back in the beginning of this thread. The Live In Peace solo from the Firm show at Hammersmith way back in 1984 is one of the most exciting solos he ever played. He certainly didn’t splice that together. Whatever he did in the studio with Zep worked in spades to say the least. Personally I don’t worry about how he did it on whichever track. Those records are spectacular and have stood the test of time beyond all belief. Sometimes it’s better not to think too much about how the sausage gets made.
  8. LA 6/3/73 is also one of the best
  9. There’s a lot of magic on 5/24, NQ, Tangerine, a wonderful acoustic set and a fine Stairway. But the best thing about it is what’s for my money the greatest ever Trampled. Best overall 75 show imo is Seattle 321 followed closely by Long Beach 312. Couldn’t agree more with duckman, if we ever get multis from EC that will be epic to say the least. The dry boards from this era don’t do the band many favors. A properly mixed multi from Mr Page would silence any naysayers.
  10. Is there a non-Dime link to this cuztard pi version?
  11. imo one can't go wrong with the savage version from LA 6-25-72, expertly curated by James Page on How The West Was Won.
  12. This is a tough tour to nitpick all the way around the horn...Jimmy alternated between decent and train wreck, sometimes within the same minute, Plant's heart wasn't in it, undoubtedly Bonzo's most lackluster tour, and Jones' Alembic and keyboard sounds don't exude much warmth. It has its moments, but this is the tour that time forgot, unfortunately for good reason.
