  1. Just uploaded a re-edited DVD of the Earls Court shows on Guitars101. Just type "Led Zeppelin Best of Earls Court 75 DVD re-edit guitars101" into Google or PM me for a link. There's also an mp4 version if you prefer. Both DVD and mp4 versions now work great on VLC media player. All sync issues that cropped up in my first version when played on a computer should now be fixed. I've selected the best performance of each song from the 24th/25th May shows that circulate. Improvements include: - a better audio mix of the opening numbers that's more sympathetic to Plant's voice (which always took a few songs to warm up in 1975); - I've smoothed out the edits which make a complete Going to California and That's The Way; - you can finally hear the backing vocals in Tangerine which I've boosted using the night of the 18th; - no official footage from the Led Zeppelin DVD has been used - a few of the vocal flubs have been fixed so it's closer to what an official release could sound like. Enjoy!
  2. Look what I down loaded! Sounds GREAT too! I can't believe that there are no postings about this Cuztard Pi matrix remaster! (My apologies if there IS a thread about this remaster already going...) Here's what the txt file says: Led Zeppelin - Seattle Center Coliseum 1975-03-21 (SBD/AUD Matrix) Matrix/Remaster using independant SBD & AUD recordings to add life to the original SBD. Note: This is an edited/remastered/SBD-AUD Matrix version using both the original "Led Zeppelin 1975-03-21 Seattle - Deus Ex Machina SB (EVSD)" soundboard recording that was quickly withdrawn from Dime on 2017-08-02 and immediately replaced by a reseed care of jupiter2101 as below; plus an audience recording from Dime in 2008: "LZ1975-03-21 Seattle Mix CD" (no longer listed on Dime). ...............................

Notes: I guess we are all becoming (or are already) well spoiled by the various pieces of rare treasure that pop-up now & again on Dime; The SBD of this show that 1st appeared on Dime on 1st Aug 2017 was such a gift.. but then it was suddenly gone (i.e. withdrawn) just 1 day later! ... & then immediately back again as a "reseed". Wow! So it is free for all to listen to free of charge .. isn't Dime great! And what a great show it is! ... over 3 and a half hours of Zeppelin SBD from 1975 (just 2 months earlier than when I first saw them at Earls Court London; so a very welcome addition to my ever expanding collection). I thought someone might put up a SBD/AUD matrix of this show to try & add a bit of life to the great but just a bit dry SBD, there were several requests for such a matrix .. but so far it has not happened. So ... having put such a matrix together myself using an old AUD recording that I also got from Dime back in 2008, I thought I would post it on Dime for any who fancy it; a nice alternate to the original. Producing SBD/AUD matrix mixes using modern digital recordings is relatively easy .. but doing the same with old (i.e. '70's) analogue recordings (especially with 3+1/2 hours length!) is a bit more difficult .. bottom line, it has taken me well over a week to sync up the SBD & AUD recordings and produce the matrix. ... but it came out very nice & well worth sharing back via Dime .. so here it is. Check out the samples posted in the thread below to hear whether you want to grab this alternative version of this fine show or not. I think it sounds GREAT & I prefer it to the original SBD! For those interested - basic details of the mixing & mastering applied to the original 2 Dime sources (using Wavelab6 & HarBal) are as follows: A: Balance left & right channel volume & frequency response for the SBD source B: Apply balancing EQ to both SBD & AUD sources C: Mix 2 sources with adjustments to the stereo image D: Finalise matrix mix EQ plus apply light compression & limiting (~ -1dB max; -12.4dBrms average) E: Adjust final volume levels to balance out dynamics F: Add silent lead-in & -out plus fade ins & outs G: track split A note for any finicky audiophiles out there: Mixing & remastering of the original sources has been done with the aim of enhancing the listening experience. If you prefer virgin recordings, unspoiled by any such amateur 'dabbling' then do not join in on this one. Be warned now ... I don't want any whingeing! ;-). ... and don't forget that the original SBD is currently still available on Dime; see link above. But for the rest of you Dime'ers I recommend that you GO FOR THIS ONE ... you won't be disappointed! I score the sound quality as 9 out of 10 ( = A- ); but hey! ... don't flame me if you don't agree ... & at least keep it friendly ;-) If you have any comments, whether positive, negative or otherwise, I would love to read them ... don't be a lurker! .....................................................................

  3. 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.
  4. A new coffee table book Five Glorious Nights, compiled by Dave Lewis, is being published to commemorate the 1975 run of concerts at Earls Court: http://www.fivegloriousnights.co.uk/ Disclaimer: Not associated with the publisher Rufus Stone.
  5. Hello guys. My father pulled this shirt off a clothing rack in storage. He seems to think it's worth a bit of money now days. All I could find of the shirt's value online was a sold out store that sold it for $400. What do you guys think this would sell for? Clean white, no yellowing or stains. Thanks in advance!
  6. 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.)
  7. Considering I was so critical of Page's playing on 3/21, I only consider it fair to analyze his playing on a 75 show that I've previously thought was great, Montreal 2/6/75, just to see if I was correct in saying he did have some performances where he played like his old self or if he was truly subpar altogether in 75. Of course this is a B-grade audience recording, so it's a little hard to judge the sound accurately, but I think I can still hear a bum note nevertheless. WARNING: Over-sensitive folks who can't handle honest criticism of a rock band- stop right here and exit stage left. Again, this isn't me taking a crap on Page. I thought it would be fun to point out both the highlights and lowlights of an entire show. Listen along and take note of the examples I give and maybe give your own examples or input. Those who want a link to the version I have, send a PM. The Youtube version doesn't match up to mine. Rock And Roll- Very reminiscent of the version from TSRTS soundtrack. No problem with the solo at all as he flies right through it. Sick Again- A tight start. The first solo- A fluid stringent of pull-offs with no strained notes, rare for this song. Second solo- Nimble fingers here as he slides right through with no flubs. So far so good. OTHAFA- Absolutely perfect intro, again a rarity for this song. The solo- Page either breaks a string at the beginning or realizes he needs to swap guitars for some reason, but the first part is absent. Then he comes in at 3:02. He does his usual first run on the lower register, then moves up an octave at 3:12. 3:45-4:06 is some good phrasing. 4:14-4:23 is the type of speed and articulation that Page had in 73 that he seemed to lose as the 75 tour went on. Makes me realize that his injured finger didn't really hamper his playing, but rather the medications he took for pain. 4:40-5:05 is another good variation of phrasing. You'll notice he's not straining to do high speed triplet pulloffs and repetitive bends like he does later on for this song. It's as if his finger may be hurting, but his mind is still where it needs to be. A slight flub at 6:42. IMTOD- Great start, Plant is warmed up and sounding good. 3:27, Page drops his pick or something, but jumps back in. Solo 1- Not a great one, it's a little lackluster and doesn't flow well. Solo 2- A little more pep this time, but still not great. 7:22-7:32, he's hitting a little off key with the slide, but not too bad. 7:52, another bum note with the slide. Maybe he's out of tune? 8:48, yep, his guitar is out of tune as is apparent when he strums the open chord. 9:43, he notices the guitar is out of tune and stops the chord short to keep it from ringing out. All in all, one of the worst IMTOD's I've heard. Maybe not his fault though. TSRTS- The twelve string is coming through very twangy, so it's hard to judge from the start. 1:40 and on, they seem to be dragging a little, like they don't wanna be playing this. Solo 1- They pick up some and Page gets a good solid solo down. 3:13, damn Rob, what happened? Voice took a dive. 3:56, the tapers panning actually accents this a little lol. Solo 2- Page is playing fine, but it still sounds very uninspired. Plant sounding like shit at the end. The Rain Song- Plant's voice evens out a little. That damn out of tune mellotron. Page is flowing along nicely, but this is one of those numbers he rarely missed a note on. 4:45, Jones' foot hits the wrong note lol. 5:45, I've never really noticed how "Hendrix" his playing is on this part. Those chorded hammer-ons sound very Little Wing-ish. Kashmir- This is one version where the guitar mix outweighs the keys- perfect for nitpicking Pagey. It sounds a little thin, but still creates the mood nicely. 3:35, those arabic guitar bits sound amazing and should have been on the studio version. 7:15 and on, he's playing those ascending riffs perfectly but the leads are very erratic. 8:08, whatever that was, was fantastic. Not bad at all. No Quarter- Nitpicking Jones, he's creating a very nice mood with the keys. Jones is killing it with this groove. 7:12, the crowd joins in with perfect timing. Page comes in with elegance. 8:54-9:15 reminds me of Gilmour's solo on "Another Brick In The Wall" for some reason. Page's soloing is solid here, but certainly not 73 level. Outro solo- Page comes alive and shows some vigor. The phrasing and articulation is ok, but not above par for 75. Trampled Underfoot- Normal start. The solo- This was the new song that was really supposed to be a showcase for Page during the solo, but for most versions I've heard it sounds like he's just trying to cram as much improvised material as he can into the solo section. Here, he plays a good solo, but it sounds just exactly like that. There's no structure or buildup, just note cramming. Moby Dick- Yep, sounds like Moby Dick. Dazed And Confused- A very inspired start and the band sounds fresh. Reminds me a little of the Europe 73 versions. First solo section- Not bad, articulation is a little off but not much. San Francisco- Sounds pretty good with Page being very rhythmic with the wah pedal. Plant's voice is good again. Bow section- 8:15, I swear someone says "God hates fiddle." Some people might dismiss Page's bow playing as gimmick, but listening closely will reveal that he truly used this technique in a very artistsic manner, and this version is very haunting and ethereal. Bonham comes in and completes the otherworldy experience. 13:33- the second half, let's see where this goes. It's obvious this audience recording doesn't match up to something like TSRTS soundtrack, so I've gotta listen with that in mind. 16:14, No missed or strained notes so far, but nothing mind blowing either. 8:20, some decent fluidity. 19:22-19:32, again nice fluididty. 19:53, Mars-Bringer Of War section- disaster. I don't think Page was ready. He jumps back on track afterwards, but not sounding great. 21:16, Page jumps into the ending bar, but Jones and Bonzo don't follow til the next bar. Stairway To Heaven- Perfection through the beginning. All members are sounding great. The solo- Page starts off great, good flow and articulation. 8:13, there's some kind of accidental off notes that come through. 8:36-9:20, man, he's ripping this solo apart. One of the best I've heard. Phrasing and fluidity are there with no strained or forced notes. Absolutely beautiful. Plant's voice is rough again at the climax, but he pushes through. Whole Lotta Love (Partial)- Very rushed intro, as was common through 75. Black Dog- They're sounding lively for the end of the show. 1:00, a nimble fill that doesn't quite end right. Solo- 3:50-3:56, a little bit of turkey gobbling, but not bad. Those big bends aren't great, but not bad either. 4:28, he jumps into the Heartbreaker part. He keeps a steady flow through to the end. 5:26, some excellent articulation and speed to end it. Not a bad Black Dog solo at all for 75 (God knows he had some bummers). Heartbreaker- The solo- Starts off strong, although twangy. 2:37, sticky fingers on the ascending pull-offs. Afterwards it's the usual series of motifs he uses for this solo, but a little uninspired sounding. 5:08, finally comes alive with a flurry of notes. I'd say the show ends very mediocrely. My final assessment of Page for this show? I had previously thought this was the best Page of 75. I'm not so sure now after listening in detail. He definitely gets on a high level on certain parts, mainly the beginning, but drops back down in areas as well. He doesn't strain on Sick Again. OTHAFA has good articulation and phrasing. The Stairway solo is great. Does he have the overall musicality and ability of pre-75? I couldn't say he did, but he did great with an injured finger. And a fifth of Jack. I'd certainly rate his playing way above 3/21.
  8. I know people complain about the recording quality, but there are far worse sounding boots. Plant's voice isn't great, but it's as good as the MSG 73 shows. This show stands out to me as one of the few where Page is actually playing on his usual level with few flubs, and quite amazingly compared to most of the shows from 75. He must have ran out of whatever drugs he was taking for this show as his fingers are much more nimble. The "Sloppy" monicker can't be applied here when listening to his blistering Stairway solo. Of course an audience recording masks a lot of mistakes, so a soundboard might put it on a more level playing field. I actually like the string break on Over The Hills, which sends Jones and Bonham into a funk breakdown while Page switches guitars. Sick Again is played fluently without the "Fingers stuck in strings" sound Page usually has on this song. The tape clears up tremendously for Dazed and is played exceptionally.The encores are played with so much energy they almost sound like the show openers from 72/73, with Page again hitting every mark on the Black Dog solo just like his old self. The only thing that bugs me is the frequent panning. Not sure if that was done through the monitors (I've heard it in other shows} or if the tapers were doing it. I'll take this semi good audience recording over just about any of the soundboards from 75, with the exception of maybe Deus Ex Machina. But honestly, Page conjuring up his old self almost makes this more listenable in my opinion. What do you guys think?
  9. Being a drummer and a worshipper of EVERYTHING JOHN BONHAM, that Fort Worth show is probably still my go-to 75 show. Bonham was just so F'ing good that night it's incredible. Makes up for whatever faults Robert or Jimmy had. His playing is fast, ferocious, inventive (his fills in OTHAFA just leaving me shaking my head, maybe not as good as the next night, but 3:35 to 3:37 is pure GOLD), and incredibly accurate (Just listen to his bass drum on TSRTS-it's mind blowing). From start to finish the pace he keeps up is just staggering. And, to me anyway, his drums just sound magnificent... better than most of the 75 boards. I love the Seattle show, but this one is still my fav from 75.
  10. In the wake of the release of "Deus Ex Machina", I thought it might be fun to do a live compilation of the 1975 soundboards. 75 is personally one of my least favorite live years, but I think a killer compilation/live album could be assembled using these soundboard recordings. In terms of soundboards, this is the most documented Zeppelin tour of all, and the soundboards themselves sound amazing. Here's what my compilation would look like: Rock and Roll - 3/21 Sick Again - 3/21 OTHAFA - 3/4 IMTOD - 3/14 TSRTS - 3/20 The Rain Song - 2/12 Kashmir - 3/17 No Quarter - 2/28 SIBLY - 3/21 TUF - 3/21 Moby Dick - 2/28 D&C - 3/21 Stairway to Heaven - 3/21 Whole Lotta Love - 3/11 Black Dog - 3/21 Communication Breakdown - 3/21 Heartbreaker - 3/21 So what would your 75 soundboard compilation be?
  11. Just came across the Empress Valley Supreme Disk dual layer DVD image for "Demand Unprecedented In The History Of Rock Music" (around 7.6Gb). According to argentiumastrum, "Unlike Toasted Condor's "Heavy Metal Machine", this new effort from EV uses superb sounding stereo soundboard soundtrack to provide the most professional status." I still have two ears despite advancing age, but the sound on the DVD image sounds suspiciously like mono, albeit very high quality mono, to me. I would be very grateful if anyone with an original copy could let me know if the sound is "proper" stereo. Given the size of the DVD image I would have thought it is a straight copy. I am of course assuming that the original was on one dual layer disk. It is definitely the EVSD version because their watermark briefly appears bottom right from time to time,usually when a song starts. And so to bed...
  12. Help ,im looking for this WHOLE interview, ive seen a few more minits of it than whats left of it on youtube , but it disapeared ! ? , IT was really good , i mean REALLY GOOD ! I LOVE how confident & PROUD they were of LED ZEPPELIN , however never seen the whole thing!! he also says the same about JONSEY ! id like to find more of them two like this !
  13. Anyone else finding 1975 a new favorite year? I'm listening to Seattle 17 and enjoy the Dazed very much. Last year till O2 they played Dazed. First year for Kashmir. Almost always fresh. Trampled Underfoot and In My Time Of Dying. Great blues. If I had a "dream year" with nothing but soundboards, thiis would now be my choice. Even with the new soundboards recently it needs a new look. It's an under-rated year. Thanks.
  14. Please post all photos of the Earl's Court concerts you have. Here are the ones from led-zeppelin.org
  15. The biggest disappointment with the '75 tour of the U.S. was paucity of material from the first three albums. Plan said the band would offer some color from the entire 6.5 year career of Zep and yet we barely get any songs from the first three albums. The first eight songs of every concert begin with tunes starting from Led Zep 4, back into PG, then back in 3 and basically stays there until WLL and the very end where if we're lucky we get HB or CB. This isn't retrospective at all. We got essentially nothing from Zep 1,2 and 3. Oh yeah, toss in the MB from Zep 2 but that's a drum solo, less a song. Bummer.
  16. Would anyone be able to help me ID which show this poster is from? Any help is appreciated! (sorry, I am not sure why pix are turned sideways, they aren't on my computer. Ugh)
  17. Hey zeppelin fans. What do you think?. Is better Seattle of 1975 or Earl Court.? Seattle has a amazing version of Dazed And Confused with 43.00 minutes! Earl court has great acustic songs. Voice of Robert isn´t the best but i think that the rest of the band just were AWESOME
  18. hello everyone, I'm newbie in this forum, and I'm glad that finally I join this forum. and i wanna ask a question that has been in my mind since a few years ago: does anybody has bootleg from earls court 23 may 1975? I've couldn't find it anywhere. I'm crazy about that date, because I've heard the other earl courts concert and makes me wonder how was the band sound from that night. especially for no quarter because I think no quarter is the highlight of the setlist in any earls court night, it sound different every night, and still awesome!! if anybody know, please tell me where can I get the bootleg, or at least give me a review about the concert performance. thank you for anyone that respond my question..
