It doesn't look that way, not even on DVD. I checked Amazon.de and they don't have it....

I wish, not that I know of. 480p ain't too bad........ I used zoom and faces ain't all balloned out and picture is ok for a freebie.

Face it, lot's of good stuff just don't make SD or BD so you are left to 'other' sources......

I hate saying this as I LOVE the band like many of us do, but not impressed. Hope the full show changes my mind. Having said that, it could be worse........anyone see Jerry Garcia with either the Dead or his own band in 94/95............ eek.gif Some of these shows I saw during these years you felt like you were watching Jerry die slowly in front of you. frown.gif

Have yet to check out the BD, but do have the album via iTunes. Yes, they did tune down a whole step for several tunes (Stairway is now in the key of G as opposed to A, for example), but others are at their "normal" pitch - Kashmir, for example, although being a DADGAD guitar tuning, was already in a lower register, so no need to alter it. Plant still pulls off a nice high note during Since I've Been Loving You, however. And overall the band sounds pretty great. Page was always sloppy, but in a good way. Still is. ANd still nice to hear him with a Les Paul thru a loud old Marshall or 3.

JPJ definitely survived the life of an LZ member the best, at least outwardly......and the old story that he was the only LZ member who did not "sell his soul" via some silly Page black magic related deal with the Devil does seem to be playing out in 2012 (or 2007, if going off what is seen/heard in Celebration Day). He certainly had no issue keeping up with relative youngsters Josh Homme & Dave Grohl in Them Crooked Vultures.

HBO is showing the new documentary about the Stones called "Crossfire Hurricane."

Don't bother.
Basically, it is a video montage, with 2 second cuts, and the band members narrating.rolleyes.gif
Pure money grab schlock....

For this set he's actually playing through ORANGE amps. It caught my eye several times as he has for whatever reason covered up the A & N on the amps and you read ORGE.
I saw this in the theaters a few weeks back and it absolutely kicked ass. Yeah, Plant's voice isn't what is was but it wasn't 25 years ago when I first caught him solo either. That being said he still sings great. Once they get a song or two into it you can see they are really having fun. Bonham does an incredible job on drums which really should come as no surprise. The crowd in the theater was hooting and hollering through out. And there was a loud applause at the end. This blu-ray and cd will be a day one purchase for me without a doubt.

So it is unpublished?

That is so cool. Shared it with a couple of friend who are Hendrix devotees and they were impressed.
Thanks for sharing

Yes. It's just a pic a friend found recently going through slides and scanning them.

Hi, this is my first post on the forum, which I have joined only recently.
As for Celebration day, picture and sound quality on BD is excellent, although I miss the feeling of a concert, so pure and not much space, at least with my setup (probably speakers need upgrading). With Yamaha DSP Concert Video I could feel it though, excellent impression.
I agree that JPJ is in the best shape of them three, and keeps the rhythm. If it wasn't for him and young Bonham, Jimmy would loose his tunes, sometimes having to catch up with the band. But it was sweet, his fingers mingling, but his smile showing that nothing serious happened. And solos are different than on studio albums, which is great too, as it should be.
I am really impressed by Jason. His excitation was incredible, he was so happy to have played with the band. Congratulations.
And I bought BD with CDs, my daughter has a small setup upstairs, and she can play CDs on it, unlike BD. So it can be useful. Price for BD with CDs was relatively low in Poland, the same as for a BD alone.

It's hard to know what's been posted already .... Check this out



Yowza. This isn't a concert per sey - the description is
Quote:
"From The Basement" is a new series, showing on IFC in the US, which has a simple premise: "put the music first". There is no audience, no big production, no small talk with a host. The acts go into the studio, set up and play their hearts out in front of the cameras. The mix of artists is eclectic but with an overriding common factor - they really know how to deliver a performance. This DVD brings together some of the best performances from the series so far with many hugely successful bands, including Radiohead, White Stripes, Beck & more.

The camera work is very very good. It's only 4:3 video but it doesn't need to be anything else. The recording quality of the sound is incredible. Each performer is mic'd up how they sound best. It has a 5.1 and DTS but I prefer the digital stereo setting played through my 7 channel stereo setting. You feel like you are in the venue. Each band plays only 1-3 songs but the performance are great.

The White Stripes performance - wow. The dynamics on this are amazing and will give your amps a challenge. There is no too loud. Other tracks go really really low and will show you what your subs are capable of.

Laura Marling and PJ Harvey each have great performances and their voices are crystal clear and beautiful.

If this sounds like it might be a great demo DVD to take when testing audio systems - you're right. It has the diversity you would want to really exercise a system.

Page owns Zep - he's either on or off, that night he was on.......... Page is known as one of the greatest guitar players of all time. lsol

Bonham worked for Mick Jones for a spell.......


Live Yardbirds: Featuring Jimmy Page


Live Yardbirds: Featuring Jimmy Page is a live album released by English blues rock band The Yardbirds in 1971. It features songs recorded at a Yardbirds performance at the Anderson Theatre in New York City on 30 March 1968. The album is notable for its inclusion of the song "I'm Confused," which would become a "classic rock" standard upon Yardbirds guitarist Jimmy Page re-recording it, with modified lyrics, as "Dazed and Confused" with his post-Yardbirds band Led Zeppelin later in 1968.

I had to check what "for a spell" means wink.gif. Always learning...(I am from Poland)
I never considered Page a guitar virtuoso. Yes he has excellent instincts, good riffs and compositions, something classic about him, but not among my favourite ones. Anyway, it is a matter of preferences, nothing personal.
Yesterday I changed settings in my BD player and instead of Dolby I set for PCM. I do not know if it is a placebo effect, but everything sounded so much better, a more live sound. Excellent performace altogether.
And I am looking forward to this Metallica concert. Three hours of performace, what a piece of work.

I was a little disappointed with the Celebration Day blur ray.

1. The editing was annoying what is with those low-res grainy shots, is that supposed to be artistic if so it sucked.

2. The song list was a little bit of a letdown for me. I know there many great Led songs, but many of my favorites where left out, this is just a personal miss for me.

3. The Audio was not all that good , I own over 100 of concert DVDs so I know a good 5.1 mix and this was not one of them. Its sounded thin in the middle, there was plenty of low end and high end maybe too much high end. Also Plants vocals were kind of low in the mix every once and awhile. You would think with all the planning and money thrown at this event they would of had the audio nailed.

I didn't know that, even more of a reason not to mess up the editing using them, they look awful on a big screen HDTV.
