How about a best of Led Zeppelin live?

Recommended Posts

A good compilation would be the best of Led Zeppelin Live. From all years either a soundboard or great sounding audience.

I love the version of Ten Years Gone from 5/21/1977 Houston, TX

Not that there isn't room for another one but that's exactly what I was thinking. For years Page promised a live chronological Zeppelin album which is exactly what Led Zeppelin DVD is, only we get the added benefit of visuals.

Too bad that aside from the promos menu on disc 2 he basically ignores 1977.

Personally I'd like to see a live box set with at least one live version of every song they ever played in concert and a selection of live only songs that they played. That's just pointless optimism on my part though.

Isn't the bootleg "Led Zeppelin - Through the Years" basically a 5 disc compilation of one example of each song they performed live? There are some notables missing (like "When the Levee Breaks"), but it's fairly complete. But not the BEST version of each song ever recorded live.....

jimmy promised around 1977 to release such an album.

i guess there are more audio than video tapes in a good quality that he got .

it would be a great thing but i don´t know if he would choose my favorite versions.

he did it with the -in my time of dying.dvd release.

but i made my personal bootleg best of by now.therefore it is always intresting

to hear people in hear mentioning other versions that i don´t know so far.

Hi,

Why not make your own, easy enough and you could put what you want on it.

There are a few of these compilations round already, the 8CD Cabala one and there is another 5/6 CD one the name of which escapes me.

I would much rather have a complete show than another compilation.

Perhaps once the O2 show is out, they can take a step back from the type of releases they've been doing the past 20 years, and just start offering downloads of shows direct. Why not get these shows out to those who want them?

Even with those shows where Plant's voice is rough, or Page messes up on a solo, so what? It's not as if THAT many people would download and listen, or that it would tarnish their legacy in any way. There is a big difference between the Zeppelin that the mass public wants to hear and the Zeppelin live history that fans like us want to hear. The mass public still has the official releases, so why not make some money giving the fans what they want.

That would be really cool! I would probably rather they release whatever material they have (full concerts if possible). I love hearing how Plant interacts with the audience over the course of the evening.

Does anyone really know for fact that there are full concerts professionally filmed, or are they all just rumors?

You're going to have to be clearer than that in your post, James.

I mean, what do you mean by 'professionally filmed'?

We've already got the 1970 Royal Albert Hall concert and the 1973 Madison Square Gardens footage out on DVD. There is full video footage of the 5.24 and 5.25 Earls Court concerts of 1975 that have been released on bootleg DVDs, as well as the 7.17.77 Seattle and both 1979 Knebworth concerts.

For now lets just get some opinions on what songs and which performance should be on it.

It would be cool to have one that has the longest version of all the songs they did live (Dazed And Confused 45 minutes from LA '75, No Quarter 35-40 minutes from LA '77, Moby Dick 35 minutes from Landover '77, Stairway to Heaven 15 minutes from Berlin '80). That LA '75 show (the third one, Deep Throat bootleg) I believe has some other "longest versions": In My Time Of Dying 13:00, Over The Hills And Far Away 8:30, Trampled Under Foot 11+, Black Dog 6:30+ w/a great solo

I'm sure you mean well, but that would be dreadful. Length doesn't always equal quality.

Case in point, that 35 minute Moby Dick from Landover 77...surely the most boring solo Bonham ever performed. It's a quaalude lover's dream. That 45 minute Dazed and Confused from LA? Another soporific performance. Add in the Berlin 80 Stairway, and you're looking at a compilation that would be destined for the cutout bins.

People would listen once, possibly burn it, then take it back to the record store.

Personally, I think that each Led Zeppelin concert had its own specific personality and magic, that it's nigh impossible to do the band justice with a live anthology.
