The Hypothetical Concert


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know who put this together? It's a compilation of live rarities and jams from over the course of Zeppelin's career. The sound quality is all over the place due to the sheer amount of shows used, and the transitions are abrupt, but this is an excellent compilation imo.

Here are the original notes:

First, I have to admit that this project was a little bit too ambitious for me. I mean, collecting all those weird and rare Zep stuff (not found on original official albums or performed very rarely) is ok, but to imagine that one could arrange them in a logical order to make them sound like a normal Zep concert (with acoustic sets and all) - man, this is too much.

So I willingly admit my defeat. It's jut too damn hard for me to take 32 tracks from 1969 to 1980 and mix them together. The following is a chronology. A chronology depicting a hopeless struggle: man versus Led Zeppelin. At least I made the effort. Just listen, don't use any logical reasoning (like "How the hell could Jimmy switch
from electric to acoustic in two seconds?").The rest is history. Merry god damn christmas to all of You, folks. (Oh, and a big thanks to RO)
