New Led Zeppelin, Empress Valley releases.

Two new Led Zeppelin releases have arrived from the doors of Empress Valley.


The first is a reissue of the classic ‘No Quarter’ release, renamed ‘Black Dragon With Blue Axe’. A 6 CD boxed set.

Recorded at the Earls Court arena on the 18th of May, 1975, this new version features a new Empress Valley remaster of the show on 3CDs, the next 3 CDs are from a new and unreleased source.


The second is, unusually, titled, ‘No Quarter’. This is a new release of the ‘Red Devil’ tape also from the from the 18th of May, 1975.
A 5 CD boxed set, the original ‘Red Devil’ LP source is featured on the first two CDs, the other 3 CDs are from another new and unheard source.
As the rumour is that the masters for ‘Red Devil’ were destroyed in a fire, only the acetate to this release still existed. This tapes appearance is a very welcome find.



If you liked this review, buy me a cup of joe. (Suggested: $3 a shot or $7.5 for a double)

  1. I’m hearing of a new Zeppelin Earl’s Court ’75 boxset from Tarantura. Get your wallets out…

    • I heard that as well, any idea when it will be released?
      Thanks, Mitch

      • No sign of this one yet. There is also something brewing at Empress Valley. Apparently there is a “massive” new soundboard release coming!

        • Good to hear, Eat a Peach label is about to release a new remaster of the MSG 1970 show for both afternoon and evening sets, from the tape/master source. Things are heating up on Zeppelin front. You must have a finger or two on the japan label pulse. Thanks.

          • Nice update mirrgang! I’m interested to hear what the sound quality is like on that upcoming MSG ’70 release.

  2. I agree. Beautiful laminated boxes with all the little trinkets that we expect of an experienced bootlegger. The last box i Picked up – The McCartney 2005 tour set was lovely. I guess that’s why we collect. You can’t hold a download in your hands.

  3. Those new Zeppelin releases look beautiful.

    • I purchased my first bootleg CDs in April 1989, they were Hari’s On Tour(GM), and the Condor titles Hold Me Tight and Not Guilty. I love collecting the music of my favorite artists today as much as I did 26 years ago. I truly appreciate the efforts of all the labels like HMC that continue to provide silver pressed discs in beautiful packages.
