  1. Hi. I'm new here but I wanted to join so I could share something. Am I allowed to share links for downloading it from my cloud storage or do I only offer them if people PM me? Long post - deep breath! Been working on it since the summer when it started to become apparent that Jimmy Page was not going to deliver the 50th Anniversary Live boxed set that we all hoped for. Well, if he wasn't going to do it, then I was certainly going to give it my best shot! My starting point was that for 1969-1973, we have near-complete live shows for each year: Paris Olympia from 1969 Royal Albert Hall from 1970 BBC Paris Theatre from 1971 How The West Was Won from 1972 Madison Square Garden from 1973 As the years 1975-1980 are only represented by the DVD's highlights from Earls Court '75 and Knebworth '79, I decided to concentrate purely on these years. Unfortunately, as much as I love Led Zep (they have been my favourite band for years) we all know that during the second half of their career their performances were sometimes inconsistent. Plant had vocal issues, Page had certain other issues and even Bonham could have a dodgy night. I knew that if I was to construct a live album for each of these years that was anywhere near definitive or near the standard required for an official release, it was going to involve a lot of editing. Plant's vocal squeaks and cracks needed sorting, Page's flubs needed to be addressed and a few band timing issues needed smoothing out. If I was to make an edit within a song and use a better performance from another night then I also wanted to match the EQ, reverb and stereo separation. Some soundboards varied so much in these areas! What I've ended up with is a 2cd or 3cd soundboard compilation from 1973, America and Earls Court 1975, America 1977, Knebworth 1979 and Europe 1980 to approximate a complete show from each of these tours/shows. I've also done the same for L.A. 1977, trying to use only Mike Millard's recordings wherever possible. I know they are audience recordings but they are so good and so legendary that even Page saw fit to use one for a menu on the official DVD set. I've sprinkled a few extras here and there just for kicks. As a bonus I've created an alternative version of The Song Remains The Same soundtrack. This one comes from my frustration at what we were officially given for the 50th Anniversary. The flawed 2007 version of The Song Remains The Same was reissued, despite Page having the opportunity to finally give the soundtrack the treatment it deserved - for example, by using the superior 1976 album versions of some of the songs and ditching the film versions with their awkward edits that sometimes even added or took away beats of the bar. A complete Black Dog would also have been nice! This is the version I wish had been issued. Many thanks to The Garden Tapes website which provided invaluable help. I've included a compilation (entitled 1973-1980) of songs which were some of my favourite performances but which didn't meet the standard I was looking for in terms of a near-perfect performance or sound quality. This compilation consists of 6 cds of honourable mentions, mostly soundboards but with a few top quality audience recordings that compete in terms of performance. Oh, and Volume 10 consists of 3 DVDs: the 1st is my version of what an official Earls Court compilation could look like, the 2nd my presentation of the Seattle gig with better sound + some extras and the 3rd is my version of what an official Knebworth compilation could look like. Note: If the edit I've made is just for a beat or two, or for a couple of seconds then I have not listed which show it has come from (there are many!) but if it is a large section of the song then I have detailed the source. Apologies for the few fixed tracks. Hope it's pretty self-explanatory for which track replaces which track. Finally, muchas gracias to the YouTuber Led Zeppelin Boots and the remaster wizard Liriodendron. I used a lot of their ideas in compiling the setlists and the 1977 sets and 1973 set especially contain a lot of their work.

there is no complete video of this song from the 24th). Audio sources: 24th - audience matrix audio (thanks rickm1964) for Rock And Roll/Sick Again because it took a few songs for Plant's voice to warm up on both nights as per the norm. The audio for the rest of the show is largely untouched except for a few vocal flubs here and there. 25th - King Jimmy and the West Bromwich Blues Band (Bluecongo audio matrix) synced to video. Video sources: 24th - In The Court Of King James (EV) up to Bron-Y Aur Stomp. This has a noticable improvment in picture quality, particularly for Tangerine. - Heavy Metal Kids (EV) from Trampled Underfoot to the end as there are no audio drop outs, and not much improvement in picture quality from King James, which has audio drop outs on its 2nd disc. - Return Of The Kings (WOW) for a tiny portion of That's The Way to make it as complete as possible. 25th - Demand Unprecedented In The History Of Rock Music (EV) DVD2 - Seattle 1977, Europe 1980 + Promos Seattle 1977 01-The Song Remains The Same (soundboard/audience audio matrix) 02-Sick Again (soundboard/audience audio matrix) 03-Nobody's Fault But Mine 04-Ten Years Gone 05-The Battle Of Evermore 06-Going To California 07-Black Country Woman 08-Bon-Y-Aur Stomp 09-White Summer-Black Mountain Side (soundboard/audience audio matrix) 10-Kashmir (soundboard/audience audio matrix) 11-Over The Top (soundboard/audience audio matrix) 12-Guitar Solo (soundboard/audience audio matrix) 13-Achilles Last Stand (soundboard/audience audio matrix) 14-Stairway To Heaven (soundboard/audience audio matrix) 15-Whole Lotta Love (soundboard/audience audio matrix) 16-Rock And Roll (soundboard/audience audio matrix) Europe 1980 01-Rotterdam 8mm with soundboard audio 02-Zurich 8mm with soundboard audio 03-Munich 8mm with audience audio Promos 01-No Quarter (complete version, MSG 1973) 02-Over The Hills And Far Away (L.A. 1975) 03-The Song Remains The Same - Sick Again (MSG 1977) 04-Sick Again (promo, L.A. 1977) 05-Achilles Last Stand (promo, L.A. 1977) 06-Whole Lotta Love - Rock And Roll (MSG 1977) 07-Ten Years Gone (VH1 promo, Knebworth 1979) 08-Hot Dog (promo, Knebworth 1979) 09-Kashmir (MTV promo, Knebworth 1979 - not the same as the 2003 DVD Knebowrth version of Kashmir!) NOTES + SOURCES: This disc requires quite a bit of explanation. I believe that Seattle 77's negative reputation comes from a) the dry video feed audio that is extremely unsympathetic to Plant's voice and Page's guitar and b) the fact that Over The Hills, Since I've Been Loving You and No Quarter are very underpar performances early on in the show. The rest of the concert, I think, is in some places spectacular. The acoustic set was always very enjoyable; even with the dry audio mix, Bonham's drumming is awesome throughout (is there a better Over The Top?) and Page performs one of his finest Stairway solos. All that is even more apparent with this audio matrix mix. Thank you to Sue Dounim for that wonderful piece of painstaking work. Audio sources: The Song Remains The Same-Sick Again - Sue Dounim audience/soundboard matrix synced with Video by Randy Butternubs II Nobody's Fault But Mine-Bron-Y-Aur Stomp - The Year Of The Dragon (EV) White Summer-Kashmir - audience/soundboard matrix (thanks, Randy B!) Over The Top to end - Sue Dounim audience/soundboard matrix synced with Video by Randy Butternubs II Video source: The Year Of The Dragon (EV) The Europe 1980 section comes from the fact that this is the only year in the box set for which there is no pro video. However, sounboards are in abundance. These 3 pieces of 8mm film represent the best of the 1980 footage and are from LedZeppelin.com. Munich is particularly enjoyable with Plant in fine voice. The Promos section consists of a) all the bits of broadcast film I could find that were used as official promos for songs on VH1 and MTV in the 80s and 90s which did not turn up on the 2003 DVD set, b) all the complete songs synced together from 8mm footage and bootleg recordings also found on Led Zeppelin.com and c) a wonderful fan-made edit (thank you, Rainson Zeppelin - yours is the superior version) of No Quarter that combines the superior Soundtrack album version with the film version and film footage in a very satisfying way! I felt I just had to include it as I probably enjoy watching it more than almost any other Led Zeppelin performance. This is the one!

Sources are: Knebworth 4-8-79 - Knebworth Masters (30th Anniversary Edition) - this uses the Winston soundboard/audience matrix for audio Knebworth 11-8-79 - Return Of The Dinosaurs (Genuine Masters) Both of these sources are still considered to be best by most fans. Once you have all 10 volumes (30 discs in total), I truly believe that you have all you need from 1973-1980 as a regular Zep fan. If this was released in a similar fashion to the Pink Floyd Early Years boxed set, it could be presented as the final word on this period of their live career. Or that was the idea, anyway! They barely made a false move from 1968-1972. Almost every concert is a winner. You should have them all as you lot probably know! It is definitely harder navigating through 1973-1980 and this 30 disc box set came from a desire of mine that all began when I heard my first Zep boots back in 1993: BBC '71, Destroyer '77 and Zurich '80. I hope it helps new fans wade through the tapes and provides old fans with a solution to the problem of there being no official 50th anniversary live box set from Jimmy Page. Enjoy!
  2. First off I'd like to say I am new to the forum and this is my first post, and this question was obviously asked before but, What is your favorite Led Zeppelin year? And why is it? Whether its album releases or live performances. - My favorite year is 1972. Not only Roberts vocals hitting his peak, but Jimmy's live tone was just magnificent. And the recorded audio is very clean. Their performances had many songs from my favorite album "Houses of the Holy". And not to mention it had some of Jimmy Page's beard in that year I believe.
  3. The images below are from someone who was a teenage in LA during the 1970s. He went to a lot of great shows and brought his camera. He got as close as possible to the stage, often making it to the front row, and snapped close up shots of the bands. Luckily for us, he saw Zep a number of times and published his photos for all of us to see. Here are some samples. If you want to see the rest, here's the link: https://www.instagram.com/frommyseat/. He also sells some of the images at https://stratfordrockphotos.com/gallery.php?band=Led_Zeppelin (FYI, I'm not affiliated with him, just thought some folks here would like his work.)
  4. Southampton 73- Why it's the best Zep bootleg So many people criticize this show because; 1- Plant wasn't in top shape. 2. Neither Page or Bonham matched the intensity of the European dates of 73. Plant was barely above medium shape, which I think added a sense of vulnerability to his vocals. He sang the songs differently, with almost a melancholy approach. He doesn't squeak and strain much (like in other shows) because he knows his limits. By the time he warms up around Dazed And Confused, he sounds pretty decent. Bonham and Page not matching the showoff performance of Vienna or Hamburg isn't necessarily a negative. Those performances, although impressive, were a bit on the extreme side. Any musician can go all out during a live performance, but it's the professional who knows how to stay in the pocket and not stray. Bonham's playing on the Hamburg show is almost overkill. Adding a fill every measure turns a song into a circus act. With that said, this performance isn't far off from the European shows. Page doesn't nail every lead 100%, but that adds to the realism of a band simply playing a show without realizing they're being recorded. And when he plays good, he's as good as he's ever been. Now, with those critiques aside, you have to give credit to one thing- sound quality. Holy shit does this recording sound good. Not good, simply amazing for a bootleg soundboard recording from 1973. No soundboard or audience recording from any other Zep show sounds this good, I don't care how many people tout Royal Albert Hall 1970 or Listen To This Eddie. This was a small venue and it really comes through that way. It's exactly like you're sitting in the fourth or fifth row, fifteen feet away from the band. No cheesy effects like the 77 shows, no lethargic playing like the 75 shows, no overprocessed EQ like the How The West Was Won album, no crap editing like the The Song Remains The Same album. This is up close and personal with a full setlist. How many people would say "How awesome it would be to see Zeppelin in their prime in a small club"? Well, this is it. How could you complain? I think people refuse to appreciate the candidness of this show. I like to imagine this show was professionally recorded like the Madison Square Garden shows, showing the opposite side of their live performance- the biggest band in the world playing a small stage, which is what the band always wanted to do anyway. It's the perfect "Moment in time" performance for this band. Performance vs setlist vs sound quality, this is bar none the best in my opinion.
  5. Southampton 1973/01/23 (folder says 23, but some cover artwork says 22, not sure) Soundboard called "The Great Lost Live Album" - Could be a live album for the absolutely outstanding quality of the recording. (And I only have MP3's!) SIBLY is simply incredible. It ranks among top 3 ever for me. Possibly their best. OTHAFA is not as adventurous as it will often get, but is incredibly beautiful as is The Rain Song. Slower than usual, but just stunning. TSRTS - I think it's one of their best for the quality of the soundboard and the delivery at this particular gig. As good as the official one in the movie of the same name IMHO. John Bonham is on fire throughout the entire show as they all are. Jimmy is a little reserved, but his playing is indicative of that period - excellent. A rarity on this, JPJ comes in early on intro on Stairway which made me smile. I thought JPJ never made mistakes! Overall, it does feel fairly stripped back in a way. Especially Jimmy. Like he was happy to play well within his usual exploratory self. The mad early skills and precision is there, but not so much the adventurous flair. Although SIBLY - wow - absolute pure emotion. In fact, i'd speculate this concert was approached and deliberately recorded in such good quality, with the guys all so "on" by design and was either a test run for what they could record live later that year, or was possibly going to be considered for release depending how they all felt about it. It really does seem like a great long lost live album. Great concert. As good to listen to as any official release. The quality! Did I mention that? Oh and one other thing that struck me as really cool. The crowd silence at softer parts, like the beginning and end of The Rain Song, intro to Stairway, other places where light turns to shade and you usually get a big response from the crowd. Like they were incredibly well behaved, or just in awe/really, really into it. When they do cheer it is loud and great, but the silence at certain moments contributes to the greatness of this particular boot. It's noticable and it's awesome. I'm assuming it was not removed or suppressed at times (doesn't feel like that). So, as I'm still discovering all these boots now residing on my drive, a question.... 1972/73/75 - How many concert boots are official release quality that are as good as, or better than this? Where the whole band is just on fire. a couple of songs at least that could be considered their best from that period (if not ever) - like this concert, or a concert that is just miles ahead of anything else. But where the quality of the board or matrix is at least on par with this one. AND - if Jimmy ever gets wrapped up in what past shows he can showcase (the live vaults!), THIS - surely would have to be among contenders for any possible future release.
  6. These are pics that I hold the negatives for from the Chicago Stadium shows on July 6 and 7 1973. I don't remember the name of the guy that gave them to me but he handed me an envelope with the developed prints and negatives sometime around 1983. He knew I was a Zep nut and he said " you can have these". I don't think he actually took them because he would have been too young at the time of the concert , as he was about my age. Maybe an older family member or friend of his took them. Lost in the mists of time. These shows were notorious for being wild, especially July 6 ( rowdy ass crowd) and Plant's voice was shot, due to a cold, (sick again! ). But the band play great , especially on July 7 IMO. I'm not sure which photos are from July 6 or 7. I have several more but these are the best/clearest of the bunch. Hard to believe only 10 years had passed from the concert date to when I received them. It felt like so long ago because I longed to see Zep live and my first opportunity was the Stadium shows planned for Nov 1980. Nowadays, 7 or ten years feels like nothing, time sure flies as you get older! Anyway, hope you all enjoy seeing some previously unseen photos.
  7. Could anyone help me with this part? From 1:58:33 to 1:59:02 Thanks in advance.
  8. As listed on LZ's website, this is the official setlist over the course of three nights: Rock and Roll, Celebration Day, (Bring It On Home intro) Black Dog, Over the Hills and Far Away, Misty Mountain Hop, Since I've Been Loving You, No Quarter, The Song Remains the Same, Rain Song, Dazed and Confused (incl. San Francisco), Stairway to Heaven, Moby Dick, Heartbreaker, Whole Lotta Love (incl. Let That Boy Boogie), The Ocean. When do the clips stop/end for the particular night? Meaning; July 27:1, 2, 3, 4, 5 / July 28: 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 / July 29: 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 in accurate order if what is listed isn't verbatim. -and- Is "The Ocean" really the last track? I was under the initial impression "Whole Lotta Love" was. However, after reviewing the 2007 Blu-Ray release extras, it seems to indeed cease with concluding bows and what not. After "WLL", Plant simply says, "New York, good night." and walks off nonchalantly. I'm under the dogma that Plant said that in the same clip as the Ocean, of which, only was decided to be used in the final cut of the film. What do you guys think? I do appreciate your opinions and contributions. ^A/S
  9. Yesterday I was in a shop cause I was looking for TSRTS. I found a Led Zeppelin DVD called "The Led Zeppelin in concert". I couldn't buy it because i spent my money for TSRTS, and the only thing I remember is that SIBLY was 12 minutes long and Heartbreaker was 2 minutes long. I think it was form '72-'73, but I'm not really sure. What can you tell me about that DVD? Is it rare? Have you ever seen it? What concert is that? Tell me EVERYTHING you know!
