Mr_K Posted August 26, 2017 Share Posted August 26, 2017 Thanks to this forum for letting me know of the new Soundboard. Wow and good. Been listening to it yesterday and today. Love it. Rank it as one of the top shows of 75. The band was relaxed and tight. At ease working together, and Plant speaking to the audience is enjoyable. Tight in that they were really playing well together. I can I finally hear thr JPJ bass up in the mix! So far to what I've heard, the whole band sounds good. For example, OTHAFA - it's a fine loose groove, the band in sync, and an excellent confident solo from JP. It is excellent. Almost a reminder of the energy of 1973. But I don't think it's the best of 75. Solid, masteful, but not a heavy fire. If I were asked to pick just 1 show of 75 to say how good that they could be, I'd still pick 02/12. It still seemed like they had the fire of 73 just 6 weeks before in New York. Even the Plantations were top. The band was playing like they still had to prove their material, to conquer America with their new album. I'm not knocking Seattle of March 21, just saying that their total energy of the early years was not there. The frenzy had mellowed. Second night in Seattle. The album was out and maybe this was a great victory lap. In fact, this was one of the last times the band would be playing so well together for an entire show. Let me know what everyone thinks. Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
