This is due out this month from Mark Blake who wrote Pigs Might Fly about Pink Floyd and Pretend You're In A War which I have read and is excellent about The Who's early years.

Was When the Levee Breaks ever filmed live? I had a look a couple of years ago and couldn't find anything on YouTube aside from some bootleg audio, Page and Plant performing it in the '90s and a decent Zepparella cover.

Not that I'm aware of, they played it 3 or 4 times live at the start of the 1975 tour then dropped it for some reason. I have a bootleg from the Chicago gig with poor sound but you can hear the song sounds great so not sure why it was dropped although most likely to do with the singing (Plant's voice was never the same after an operation on his throat in late '72).

Cheers. That's a shame, it's one of my favourite songs. I did wonder if the heavy production on the original meant it was difficult to reproduce properly live as well.

Aye, that probably factored as well, there's a lot of studio guitar trickery going on towards the end of the song. I'm going to dig that bootleg out again over the weekend, 'not listened to it for years.

I take it it's this one, Mook?

 

 

Some interesting stuff in the blurb at the top- Plant had the 'flu, and Page had broken a finger. Sound's very rough like you said as well. The one from Brussels is a bit better-

Aye, that's the one.

 

I sometimes forget they're all on YouTube now. I'll have a listen to them both today. Cheers.

Got tickets through work to go and see Led Zeppelin Masters at the Philharmonic Hall last night, was originally a bit dubious about going to see a Zeppelin tribute band with basically a backing orchestra but have to be honest  I thought it was really really good.

Some songs worked better than others but it was worth the entrance fee alone to see Kashmir, No Quarter and The Rain Song played with an orchestra plus a brilliant drum solo on Moby Dick

They are from Australia, great musicians but the lead singer who's a bit iffy looks like Craig Johnson who's been on extra strength steroids .

This is from another gig

I thought about going when I got the Phil schedule some time back but couldn't bring myself to see a tribute band. Sounds like I made bad call.

 

Still have clear memories of seeing the real thing at the Empire way back in the mists of time.

That's kind of what put me off as I thought a tribute band isn't going to have the power of Zeppelin and it will just be naff but then with an orchestra and it being in the Phil with the acoustics I kind of thought it might sound different and to be fair it added depth that the four on their own would never have matched
