The Balloon Boy’s Rock Carnival In Tokyo (EVSD-513/514/515) is the dumb name for Empress Valley’s latest Led Zeppelin release. This covers the September 24th, 1971 Budokan show utilizing the old TDOLZ Light And Shade audience recording.
Also released on EV today is The Lost Sessions Vol. 12: All Roads Lead To Headley Grange Vol. 3 (EVSD-511). This is another regurgitation of common material with “Kashmir,” “Trampled Underfoot,” “Swan Song” and “Custard Pie.”
Hopefully Empress Valley are preparing the March 21st, 1975 Seattle soundboard they have for release soon to give us something to talk about.If you liked this review, buy me a cup of joe. (Suggested: $3 a shot or $7.5 for a double)
