  1. My first question would be, how are you planning to listen? For example, if you’ll mainly be using Bluetooth headphones, there’s little point in paying for hi-res streaming. If you’re directing the stream losslessly through a decent hi-if system or wired headphones, then yes it’s worth it.
  2. I believe D'yer M'ker was never performed live. There are quite a few other songs in that bucket spread across the albums. There are good recordings of fairly complete versions of some songs that were rehearsed in sound checks but never played in concerts – examples include The Rover and Night Flight.
  3. It’s very easy to extract the audio from the DVD at 16 bit/44.1kHz using software like DVD Audio Extractor to create your own CD-quality soundtrack of the RAH show. You can also add the partial tracks included in the DVD menu sections. I did this about 15 years ago and have been listening to it regularly ever since...
  4. Thought it worth registering on this forum that Peter Whitehead, who filmed the band at Royal Albert Hall in 1970, has sadly died. Not sure what implications this has for remaining archive material (if any): https://www.theguardian.com/film/2019/jun/13/peter-whitehead-obituary
  5. I used DVD Audio Extractor to create an audio file of Autumn Lake, and added a fade-in and fade-out using Audacity
  6. It took me about 60s using Audacity to create Hello Mary Lou as a stand-alone 2min 16sec track using the old 2003 disc, with fade in and fade out etc. I then added it to the end of the 2018 edition of HTWWW as a ‘bonus track’ in my lossless playlist in iTunes. Problem solved...
  7. Always been curious as to how many LZ gigs didn’t involve Robert playing the harmonica at least once? i assume it happened at most - if not all - gigs from ‘68 to ‘72 when they usually played at least one of Train Kept A Rollin’, You Shook Me and/or Bring It On Home. Then it was completely absent for ‘73? Early ‘75 may have seen it appear a couple of times for the elusive performances of When The Levee Breaks, before disappearing again. Then I think harmonica was played during Nobody’s Fault But Mine at every gig from ‘77 onwards? So in summary there was harmonica played at every gig apart from ‘73 and most of ‘75?
  8. You can take things to extremes by also extracting the audio from the DVD menu items for 'bonus tracks', plus the 2003 DVD has the full-length version of BD to add as a bonus track for TSRTS
  9. To me the fun part is extracting and editing (i.e. adding fades etc) the audio myself, but maybe I'm not normal
  10. The booklet notes for Box Set 2 describe the collection as "not simply the 'best of the rest', but rather the 'rest of the best'." I think that is where the terminology comes from.
  11. Just thought it worth flagging up in the Main Forum that Eddie Edwards has updated his excellent The Garden Tapes website to include a dissection of the recent Complete BBC Sessions release: http://www.thegardentapes.co.uk/bbc.html Although it reflects most of what was already being discussed with regards to the various edits on CBBCS, it's nice to see it get the 'official' Eddie Edwards review in his own inimitable style. Enjoy!
  12. Logan says he eventually got to see Led Zeppelin play live "at the 2012 reunion". Did he get confused and simply watch the DVD, not realising that the gig took place five years earlier?
  13. The Wikipedia entry for BBC Sessions is now displaying the alleged track times for the third disc, and it has White Summer at 8:22 rather than the previous official version which was 8:01. The Garden Tapes site says there was previously a 15 second cut at 5:06, so it looks like this track may now be about to appear in unedited form.
  14. I am struggling to hear any audible glitch at 0:55 on the official version of Sunshine Woman uploaded to Spotify, although it does have the early fade.
  15. I forgot to mention that the 1990 box also sliced at least 20s from You're Time Is Gonna Come, for reasons unknown (another 20s could have been left in without reaching the fade into Black Mountain Side used on LZ1). But we digress...
