Led Zeppelin: 2013-01-04 Charlie Rose Interview

Here is a good interview of Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John  Paul Jones from 10 days ago.  I like this interview because they talk about things we (collectors) talk about.  And Charlie Rose actually asked great questions instead of those generic, water down, useless questions most media people interviewing them ask.  And they refer to "the bootlegs" too :-)

Enjoy...

Boston: 1979-02-06 Fort Worth, TX (FLAC_AUD_2 CD)

This is a super rare Boston show with very, very low circulation.  I got this is a trade about 15 years ago, and if memory serves me correctly (no guarantee it does), it came from the trader's master recording.  Either way, in all of my years of trading and collecting live and rare music, I've never once seen this anywhere.  I even did an internet search looking for this recording being mentioned anywhere today.  I found nothing on it.  I did find a number of sites referencing the show and date at the Tarrant County Convention Center.  But I couldn't find anything on this recording or any recording of this show.

The trader also sent me about 25 to 35 pictures from the concert.  I don't believe he took them however.  I'm sure he was busy recording the show.  I have looked high and low for where I have these pictures stored but have not found them yet.  I have a feeling (actually more than a feeling :-)) they are on an old 486 DX66V Gateway PC (pre-Pentium) or on an old external hard drive somewhere around the house.  If I can find them, I'll make another upload of them and add it to my website as a zipped WinRAR file and post the link.

Led Zeppelin: 1969-08-31 Lewisville, TX (FLAC_SB_Master Reel-To-Reel_1 CD)

This is an excellent CD of Led Zeppelin's show in Lewisville, Texas (just north of Dallas, Texas) at the Texas International Pop Festival in 1969.  This festival had many great artists including Janis Joplin too.  There is a documentary video of this event, with part of Led Zeppelin's performance, and it aired on PBSS (I believe) in the early, early 1970's (I think it was 1970).  It isn't the best quality due to the generations of the DVDs of it circulating nowadays.  But it is very interesting to see the footage and what was going on at the festival too.  I may upload it here some day.

I originally got this master reel-to-reel version of the show from the old QualityBootz site (no longer around).  It had been put there after the blog's owner downloaded it from Dime it appeared.  He'd left the files intact just as he had downloaded them at the time, and since everything has already been done to them (text file, md5 file, ffp file, etc) that I'd ordinarily do, I left everything intact too.

LINEAGE:
1/4" Track Master Reels > 7.5ips Reel To Reel (Saf. Copies) > DAT > Tascam CDRW-700s > COAX > CDr(3) > EAC > WAV > FLAC (work done by dadgad)

DETAILS:

Location: Lewisville, Texas
Venue: Dallas International Motor Speedway
Event: Texas International Pop Festival
Source: SB Master Reel-To-Reel

(1) 1969-08-31 Lewisville, TX (SB/Master Reel)

I'm adding a few Texas International Pop Festival mementos (and no, I wasn't there) to this posting that I've found through the years.  I think these came from The Hammer of the Gods website.  They'll be the images at the bottom of the page.

I've had a number of bootleg label silver CD's and other sources (even an audience source) of this show that I have collected through the years.  But in my opinion, this unaltered master reel-to-reel copy is the best.

I hope you enjoy the show...
