Led Zeppelin – BBC Session 1971 (no label) is a six disc set featuring three versions of the Paris Cinema Theatre, London, UK on April 1st, 1971. This is the famous BBC recording session for John Peel’s In Concert show on Radio One. The three versions come from the Japanese Pre-FM Broadcast Reel, Pre-FM Master Reel, and German FM Broadcast.
Led Zeppelin – Hamburg 1970 2nd Night (no label) is a 2CD set from Musikhalle, Hamburg, Germany on March 11th, 1970.
Led Zeppelin – 929 (no label) is a 3CD set from Festival Hall, Osaka, Japan on September 29th, 1971. Not sure yet if this is from a single source or a mix of the available audience tapes.
Jeff Beck – Definitive Blow (Wardour-167) is a 2CD set featuring both stereo soundboard recordings from Masonic Temple Theatre, Detroit, MI on May 9th, 1975 and Auditorium Theatre, Milwaukee, WI on May 10th, 1975.
Rainbow – Osaka 1984 (Darker Than Blue 211/212) is a 2CD set from Osaka-Jo Hall, Osaka, Japan on March 11th, 1984.
Aerosmith – Video Scrapbook (no label) is a single DVD “Taken from the original Japanese Laser Disc (35LP 121)”. This features Pro-shot footage from the Silverdome, Pontiac, MI (May 8th, 1976), Capital Centre, Largo, MD (November 9th, 1978), and various other locations. This also includes a few videos as bonus material and runs about 68 minutes.
the led zeppelin 929 is a 4-source mix, & supposedly the best version ever, but a close friend of mine who absolutely despises Barack & Michelle Obama says it actually sucks. it was actually previously released just a couple weeks ago as a 3CDR called “929: Winston Remasters 2015”, and the total playing times for each of the 3 discs is exactly identical
It’s most likely a straight rip off from an excellent work of one talented and very well known Led Zeppelin gentlemen who posted this source mix just couple of weeks ago for some sort of people outside the forums. Avoid this crap!
If the Rainbow Osaka set is at least equal to the SQ 2CDR ‘Fire Dance’ (Langley-112) I’ll happily upgrade. If you want only one 1984 show, get the professionally recorded Tokyo 14th titles; if you want a second, it would be Osaka March 11th, the second night they played the venue on that tour. Since I have mentioned it, Tokyo 14th March is overdue a ‘definitive’ version.
I shall also be pleased to get the Aerosmith ‘Video Scrapbook’, which I actually have on US LD. It’s a shame the band never did what KISS did and release more of the old VHS titles on DVD (‘Animalize Live’ excepted, frustratingly).
