F.A.Q.

Who?
I have a turntable and a nice record collection, mostly LP's from the 60's & early 70's.

What?
My aim is to make rare stuff (in glorious mono or sometimes stereo) publicly available again with the best possible sound quality.

Requests?
Generally, no. I select my projects very critically. Vinyl condition is everything. I tend not to work with records that are in less than pristine condition.

Donations?
Get outta here!

  1. Thanks for this! Never heard these versions; the raw energy is palpable indeed. Thrown out with the trash... can you imagine??

  2. Great - thanks for upgrading these. I have to point out though that Led Zeppelin were never actually called 'The New Yardbirds', they were called 'The Yardbirds', then 'Led Zeppelin'. The 'New' thing came from a gig poster where an over-zealous promoter added it to try and attract in the punters. They were billed as The Yardbirds at all the other pre-Zeppelin shows. This has long since been confirmed by researchers like Dave Lewis, but the myth endures....

  9. So are these the only things left from the sessions for the album? Or is this all that's been booted?

  11. Check this:

    This is pretty much the only worthwhile stuff from those sessions. Quite sure there's more in the archives, but Page opted to use only roughs from the last batch of remasters.

  12. Good to know. It's probably my favorite period for the band so I might just get those.

  13. The problem with those multi-disc "complete studio sessions" bootlegs is that a lot of the "sessions" are really just rehearsal cassettes recorded with a boombox and uncut demo "jam" sessions and so forth, so it becomes ponderous very quickly. Someone should isolate only the genuine studio outtakes. That is something I would pay attention to.
