SuperDave Posted June 7, 2014 Share Posted June 7, 2014 Starting this topic, I'm surprised no one has ever done this one. With the first three box sets now here and whatever format you have of these the production job Jimmy did on these was impeccable overall. He really didn't have a lot of material as far as outtakes to give us and he gave us, I think the best possible versions. Most impressive was Zep III. The debut album was the Paris 1969 concert and Zep II had mostly instrumental takes. I was quite impressed with WLL and La La. What a piece with the latter. I've shared that with many of my friends, who are not core Zep fans, but who like Zeppelin and were quite impressed with it! Anyway, with this and Jimmy's work as a producer with the post Zeppelin releases and during the bands' day, I think this would be a good thread to get everyone's....and I mean everyone's opinion of James Patrick Page as a producer for Zeppelin during their tenure, the post Zeppelin compilations and live material as well as his own material, solo projects, Page/Plant etc. To me he is about the best at this with his perfectionist approach. There have been some great producers in the rock world, but very few have been part of the band or a solo artist. Mick and Keith come to mind, but aren't Jimmy Page as a producer. There may be others, in bands that are great etc., so that's why I need your help and welcome your input on this. Certainly one of the absolute best was George Martin. The work he did for the Beatles and sound and mix he was able to get was unbelievable. Many others. I'm sure. Please provide as much details as you can, other great producers and as much info as you can. This could be a great topic. Checking out this site below, will certainly give you a great feel for Jimmy Page as such a great producer with the Live releases! http://www.thegardentapes.co.uk/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
