The content of Uncut Ultimate Music Guide at #334 is heavily reliant on interviews which you may have copies of already, or are featured on this site - just warning anyone who buys it by post without seeing it first.

I've just finished reading the 'Led Zeppelin - Ultimate Music Guide' which has some great interviews. I'm intrigued by a comment Robert makes in a 1977 Interview (from Melody Maker 25/6/77 interview, on page 92). He says 'I play guitar on four tracks on our albums but I wouldn't dare play onstage'.

I'm intrigued to know what the four songs are? I think 'Going to California' is one of them, Does anybody know what the four songs are?

He's simply lying.

He's simply lying.

Not so.

He played "occasional" bass on the first Led Zeppelin album.

Who are you to call him or anyone else a liar, you gibberer!?

I'm not calling him a liar. He's my favorite vocalist. I just assumed that he lied in that interview.

Taro, would you really think Plant is lying about playing other instruments on the albums? He's not JUST the vocalist.

He was quite specific as well in saying 'four' rather than just 'a few' or something like that.

I've found more information in the credits in the mag ;

LZ1 - credit for 'Occasional Bass'

PG - credit for Acoustic Guitar on 'Boogie With Stu'

I can't see any other credits for Guitar though. Wikipedia (if you believe it) suggests he plays Guitar on 'Going to California'.

Boot Poisoning is essentially a monthly fanzine that reviews all the latest Japanese Led Zeppelin bootleg cd releases for the band's Tokyo fans. Find copies online by searching "Boot Poisoning Led Zeppelin". The reviews are printed in Japanese (although the titles of the releases are printed in English). Each issue is about 22 pages. I actually discovered Boot Poisoning today when I purchased a total of 87 assorted back issues (#30s-#140s) from a merchant downtown. I had no idea how many issues had been published in the series and was shocked to learn it's still a going concern. If anyone out there has additional back issues for sale please contact me.

I just picked this up & it's great because as an American I never got to read those NME & Melody Maker interviews in full unlike the Creem articles of the 70's. Reading those articles in this Uncut compilation made me realize what a lazy writer Stephen Davis is in "Hammer Of The Gods", not for his quoting of things the band members said in the original articles but for actually lifting the authors of those articles choice of words in their observations & essentially passing them off as his own.

Love to have this but at $14 at the local B & N, that's a bit steep.

I'm sure. I may well end up with it eventually, I just had a case of sticker shock.
