  1. Hello, I'm a new member and this is my first time posting. I have been following the forum for quite some time and decided to finally join. Here recently I have been scavenging looking for any info on Jimmy Page's guitars. There is obviously info to go around about his Les Paul(s), Tele, Dano, etc. There is even a substantial amount of info on the Harmony Sovereign and the J-200 that he borrowed for Led Zeppelin I. It is known that Jimmy used a Fender XII for Stairway to Heaven in the Studio as well as When The Levee Breaks. However, there is hardly any info regarding his acoustic 12 string guitars. He didn't use them very much from what I can hear, but it is definitely safe to say he did. Led Zeppelin III's Tangerine, Gallows Pole, and even Hey Hey What Can I Do all have an acoustic 12 String. I have found info about a couple of 12 strings he used live for Tangerine (Giannini GWSCRA12-P Craviola and a EKO Ranger XII). So my question is: Does anyone have any info regarding Jimmy's use of acoustic 12 strings in the studio? ANY information (whether it be interviews or whatever) is welcome.
  2. Hello. It has often been stated by historians and fans alike that Mr. Page only used his famous "Dragon" 1959 Rosewood Neck Telecaster, aided along with Sola Sound MKII Tonebender (modified with three OC81Ds by the legendary Roger Mayer) and a 1690T Surpo Corando Amplifier (modded from a 2x12 to a 1x12 by a roadie) for the FIRST 2 LED ZEPPELIN STUDIO ALBUMS. My ears do not agree with such statements. Page acquired a 1958 Gibson Les Paul from Joe Walsh during late April of 1969, since his "Dragon" Telecaster supposedly malfunctioned. So naturally, we would assume here that: "Case closed: Page never owned or used a Telecaster after April of 1969, since he was always seen around this period with that 1958 Les Paul he bought from Joe Walsh." But then, again, many of those same sources state that Page recorded the famous "Stairway To Heaven" guitar solo with his "Dragon" Telecaster. The same one which was supposedly not in use after late April of 1969. So, maybe Page did use the Telecaster longer than we would all assume. Yes, that is very much so. At least my ears say so. When I hear: Immigrant Song, Celebration Day (In breif sections, like the lead guitar solo), Out On The Tiles (again, in brief sections, like on the closing riff), Rock and Roll (the lead guitar solo), Stairway to Heaven (The six string part and lead solo), When The Levee Breaks (the six string overdubs, and the regularly tuned slide parts), The Song Remains The Same (the six string lead guitar solos), The Rain Song (in breif sections, like the "heavy" section), Over The Hills and Far Away (the six string electric rhythm guitar, because the solo sounds awfully like a Les Paul), Dancing Days (most of it), D'yer M'aker, No Quarter (the rhythm part sounds like a fuzzed-up Tele, and the solo sounds like a Fender Stratocaster, but CAN be a potential Telecaster), The Ocean, Houses of The Holy, In The Light (Lead part), Down by The Seaside, Achilles Last Stand (in brief sections), Royal Orleans (in brief sections), Nobody's Fault But Mine (In brief lead parts), Candy Store Rock (in a lot of brief moments), Hots on Nowhere (in brief sections), Tea For One (in brief moments), and most of In Through The Outdoor, I tend to feel that the 1959 Telecaster>Surpo>Tonebender combo was being in use, instead of the much talked about Les Paul. Could anybody confrim these to be true?
  3. Anyone else finding that they don't listen to their Zeppelin studio albums anymore? I grew up on the studio work and even remember waiting for the release of a new one. Which turned out to be ITTO. Much as I loved them, I was never completely satisfied. I rarely listened to a whole "polished" album start to finish. And I probably won't again. Now with all the great live work, I think I know why. I can't wait each evening to listen to live performances, no matter the quality (almost). The only time I hear studio is on my car radio now. Maybe it's because we have over 500 hours of concerts and only 9 studio albums, include Coda. Maybe because I'm constantly being surprised at how fresh they could be in front of an audience. If that's not a call to release more official concerts, what is? As great as they are in the studio, as many albums as they've sold of the original 9, those discs are a smaller part of what makes them supreme - the stage. Consider this forum - most of the interest is concerts. Best performances. And best performances of chestnuts, like Stairway, or songs rarely or never appearing live. Anyone think of a reason to take the vinyl out of storage? Thanks.
  4. So the reissues project is over, along with the companion disc audio project (which I was very impressed with for the most part), and now all of us are scratching our heads wondering: "What now?" Jimmy leads us to believe that he will go on tour alone, with his own band (without a singer). I'm guessing this will sort of be like a Jeff Beck thing. If so, then that's definitely something to be excited about, but another question does cross my mind quite frequently. What's left in the vaults? Supposedly a lot of good material. Here is what Jimmy (obviously) has left in the vaults, for example: 1. The 1975 Earls Court Shows. (Video from supposedly all five nights, or multitrack so from all five nights) A) If this is indeed true (and quite possibly it is), then this is a very good opportunity for another live album, along with a DVD set. Just imagine: A complete Earls Court box set, with live audio, DVD footage, and liner notes and posters/goodies and what not! An Earls Court box set along with a Word Tour from Jimmy Page would be a huge success. I seriously think Jimmy is missing out here, and should really do something about these gigs. 2. The 1970 Royal Albert Hall Gig. (Live Audio) Yes, yes, I know. Jimmy already put out this concert in the Led Zeppelin DVD. An official live album, remastered, would be truly worth it though, along with songs that were never able to make it on the DVD (Since I've Been Loving You, Thank You, Long Tall Sally, etc.) Let me know what you guys think! 3. The 1973 Southhampton Gig (Live Audio) Jimmy might consider the performance to be bad, but to many fans, it is as equal to Earls Court. Anyways, what sort of person would deny the sheer energy of this show (How Many More Times, Black Dog, Communication Breakdown, The Song Remains The Same.) This show should definetely be released officially, and would make an excellent counterpart to How The West Was Won. Please speculate and let me know if there might be something I missed out on, and your opinions about these gigs, and if they should get an official release in full form.
  5. Have yet to see much about this song on here so decided to see what you all think. My personal favorite is HTWWW, if anyone knows of any other great performances of this song please list. Thanks!
