duckman Posted April 11, 2011 Share Posted April 11, 2011 Now imagine this, It is October 1972 and The Atlantic executives are getting more and more nervous. Even more so after the delay in releasing Houses of the Holy, due to artwork issues. Zep's U.S 1972 jaunt had been a success, even if the tour was overshadowed by the Stones. We, at the board have the task to fill the gap between IV and the new album (which won't be releasd until Spring 1973) Zeppelin is in Japan for the second time and since Jimmy vetoed the release of the Japan 1971 live shows, but the two Summer California shows (Berdu was also taped, but was not not up to standards) , engineered by Eddie Kramer have been reviewed and deemed worthy for imminent release. No double live album extravaganza yet…Made in Japan or Yessongs haven not been released, but Live at the Apollo, Get yer Ya Ya's Out and Live at Leeds were immediate hits. So Goldberg suggests a single (budget) Live LP to promote the planned U.K Winter tour. Jimmy and Peter reluctantly give a green light from the Tokyo Hilton and "Led Zeppelin Live at the Forum" will be released on November 15th 1972. Now here's the Big What If… Question ? What would be your set list and do you have a title/ cover photograph in mind ? (I'm a fat, utterly conservative and the least creatively concious label boss and this is my set list, sanctioned by Jim and the lads, BTW ) Side one Immigrant Song Heartbreaker Black Dog Since I've been loving you Side two Stairway to Heaven Whole Lotta Love (edit version, no medley) Communication Breakdown Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
