If you've heard John Paul Jones vocals on his solo Thunderthief album, you will understand why he may be reluctant to see these released.
 
2013-10-18 08:08:46 PM  
I'm curious.
 
2013-10-18 08:27:21 PM  
Didn't a fark article from a few weeks ago mention a newly found set of songs when they were the New Yardbirds, just prior to Zeppelin?  I can't find this material, and would like to.

Seconded.

If there is actually some unreleased material to be heard, and tracks with Jones on vocals to boot, I might just buy the remasters.  I'd go for a box set if it included the Seattle 1977 show on DVD.

I don't hate them anymore, but by 1977 the burnout had become apparent and Page's ego was out of control.

But those first three albums are still glorious.

Thirded.

I've maintained for years (and feel vindicated by the Page/Plant collaborations) JPJ is the unsung genius of Zep. His ear for arrangements and ability to play any instrument was the glue that band needed to be great.

...it is likely that the music will feature on the remastered releases of Led Zeppelin's back catalogue

Uh, what else really can they do to them?  Box Set 1, Box Set 2 (the leftovers), "Definitive Collection", individual CDs remastered, Mothership...I like Led Zep as much as the next guy, but I think I'm done buying the same songs again.

They'll end up with more "best of" and "anthology" albums than the had real albums. Who do they think they are, Joe Cocker?

Braun y r stomp is one of my favorite zep tracks. /can play a faithful version on guitar while playing kick drum, and singing. //got a great reception at a club gig doing it once

Interesting, though I'd be more interested / would kill for some more live material from their "classic" / "awesome era."

Same for Blue Öyster Cult.

And Rainbow.

And Split Enz.

And Big Country.

And Mike Bloomfield and Al Kooper.

And Catherine Wheel.

And the Stone Roses.

I had the pleasure of interviewing John Paul Jones many years back, he was an incredibly down to earth. Unfortunately I was on heavy deadline and had to finish up the interview while we were still having a wonderful conversation.

There is a great record store in Geneva, NY I used to go to in college.  They had a lot of bootleg live shows for bands.  I picked up a few Led Zeppelin and Tool tour shows there, weren't that bad sounding.  If you can find any live led zep, its the best.  Just like Jimi Hendrix....

It's about half Zeppelin, and then some Black Crows songs, plus a few other covers. I love their cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Oh well".

Old audio/video tape gets soft, and the only way to save it is to bake it slowly at a low temp.

Much more rare, but if you can get your hands on the Listen to this Eddie bootleg, you'll be very happy. Lots of their live boots are great, but 'Eddie' is superb.

FWIW, Plant said in an interview years ago that Jonesy had sung Black Dog.

Now, sing Black Dog with your teeth clenched together and you get a sense of what it may sound like...

"Heyay Mama shed za way youwoov..."

This. I saw him open for King Crimson about 10 years ago, and holy crap, he's a rock god all on his own.

John Paul Jones......


Brian Jones.........

both are "Jones" and both are the true un-sung geniuses that drove their bands.........

CaptainFatass/csb?

I would say so! Shame about the interruption. I've always liked him. Jimmy and Robert seemed to have such giant egos while JPJ just did his thing, quietly (so to speak), like a virtuoso. Seems bass players frequently get the shaft in bands in terms of fans and fame. If I were in their shoes, I'm not sure I'd mind too much, though.

fwiw and you may already know this.....
"baking" reel to reel audio tape refers to literally drying the tape out to remove moisture so they are playable. Still funny though....

"remastered releases of Led Zeppelin's back catalogue, which he is currently working on"

oh jeezuz..... again?! weren't they remastered in the past decade already?
how can they make it sound even better?
bastids, making the punters shell out money for stuff they already have...

/granted, the orig 80's cd of "IV" sounds like thin sh*t, while the late 90's version is louder, bassier, clearer, and better.
