  1. The Hermit tarot card is just that - the Hermit tarot card. It's number 9. The Heirophant (5) is something different...
  2. There is always the "In For A Quick Garden" (Eckoes (sic) Fan Edition) DVD if you can find it out there. From the DVD notes -
  3. If you haven't seen it already, here's the Youtube video where Jimmy Page goes to see Jimmy S. play at a club in Tokyo. Jimmy (Page) is clearly having a great time... Jimmy Page goes to see Jimmy S. Really sorry that I don't know how to embed the video. If anyone can advise for future reference, please do!
  4. Methinks there is a whole stack of baggage that goes with an official release. 1. It could only happen with the consent of all members (or estate). 2. All members (or estate) would have to sign off on the material to be released. 3. Copyright and royalty issues, e.g. Beatles material in the Osaka shows. Unlikely to survive the cut! (just my opinion). 4. Manufacturing (in multiple formats?), marketing, distribution, promotional costs and time. 5. How large is the projected market? Will it make the costs back? If you go for a streaming model (the rumoured "Led Zeppe
  5. You can read a detailed review of the 3CD version over at Collectors Music Reviews. Worth a look!
  6. I have also been pondering over the previously escaped snippet of the 928 soundboard, Black Dog, which is in stereo. Why would the soundboard for 928 be in stereo and the soundboard for 929 be in mono given that they are consecutive nights using the same gear? What comes next is some amateur kite-flying so feel free to bring it crashing to earth. 😀 I *think* it was the Black Beauty BBS (in japanese translated into 'orrible english) where I read some time ago that back in the day the japanese record company had the idea of releasing a single (or singles) from the recorded Zeppelin concerts. Fou
  7. "special bonus disc featuring various rare live performances of Beatles songs from few different locations" Thinks... if that includes "Twist & Shout" from 929 and is from the unreleased soundboard portion (if it exists) then at least we know there is more to come. If not we continue to know what we don't know, or not know what we would like to!! It's late. Nurse, the screens...
  8. I saw a news item posted elsewhere which said cd1 runs 52 minutes. If true, this presumably means Dazed & Confused is not complete. I just checked the track lengths on "Arigatou Osaka" and got Immigrant Song (4:43), Heartbreaker (9:21), SIBLY (8:42), and D&C (32:10 for the complete track and a little of the subsequent chat) which comes to 54 mins 56 secs or thereabouts. This does not include any time for the introduction track preceding Immigrant Song which is included in EVSD's 52 minutes. Methinks those Pennies From Heaven will be staying up there a while longer.
  9. Just some idle speculation! ☺️ I want to know why no "Stairway..." on the 2 cds. There is plenty of room for it timewise. It cannot be because it has already been put out. If that was the case, "Immigrant Song" would be missing too. Perhaps EVSD haven't managed to shift their stock of "Stairway..." and so will not include it on a multi-cd production until they have all gone. Is it just down to greed/ £££s on EVSD's part? Could it be that Page is going to authorise something (official HTEWW) at some point which includes the missing tracks so EVSD have been told to leave them off? Whatever,
  10. Copyright in the sound recording of the performance might expire after 50 years, but what about publishing royalties? If someone banged out a tape as soon as the sound recording copyright expired, wouldn't they still be liable for publishing royalties?
  11. Anyone intending to pay a visit will need to take quite a few pocketfuls of gold. Take a look from 15:30 where he flips through some records already in the racks. I still don't know how to embed YouTube videos...
  12. Oh my goodness! Recent post too. Some place in Arizona is selling off a huge Zeppelin bootleg collection. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSfx5kzbGxk Apologies for not knowing how to embed YouTube videos. It's late, I'm tired, and I cannot find a forum help button!
  13. Many thanks sir! I have been hoping this would turn up.
  14. The banding is known as "microphony". To quote from Wikipedia - "The term may also be used to describe a video artifact common in older video cameras. Before the introduction of solid-state CCD sensors to produce the image, vacuum tubes performed this task. Loud noises in the studio, such as rock bands or gunshot effects would cause the tubes to vibrate, producing a characteristic undesirable horizontal banding in the image." I remember reading an article about the official Live Aid DVD compilation which mentioned how microphony caused the same kind of horizontal banding from time to time.
  15. Back in 2012 I started a thread about the morality of downloading bootlegs - Got some interesting responses at the time. I have a problem with people profiteering from the tapes stolen from Page's house because they were his personal property. In a way, downloading any bootleg is "immoral" because the royalties ain't getting paid, however JP gave an implied ok to fans trading recordings in his quote related to a court case some years ago. Runs for cover...
