The Guardian Exclusive:
Led Zeppelin Reissue Preview:

In The Evening (Rough Mix) 6.54
Alternate effects on the drone intro which recalls the live Knebworth arrangement – a more Eastern in feel. A much cleaner vocal track with less echo – this really adds a new majesty to the piece. The guitar is also mixed higher. On the slowed up refrain with Jimmy’s guitar effects, this mix allows you to clearly hear JPJ playing that beautiful keyboard sequence that could be heard on the live versions.

His bass playing is also exemplary. That whole sequence from 4 mins 25 through to 5.00 is another wonderful revelation. Moving into the finale the outro sounds very live and pure – all in all, this rough mix is a total joy.

Summary: The opening statement with added clarity and intent.…magnificent…

Robert Plant – on stage at Ludlow Fringe Festival:

Robert was back on stage last week for an appearance at the Ludlow Fringe Festival.

Reported as follows:

Robert Plant’s presence at the Folk at the Castle night, part of two days of music at Ludlow Castle which capped off the three-week arts festival, was kept strictly under wraps right up to the day of the show.

The former frontman of 70s rock superstars Led Zeppelin performed four traditional folk songs with Shropshire area musicians Grey Wolf (Jim Allen, Martin Thomas and Ben Walsh) and singer Deborah Rose.

His appearance was only officially announced on the festival’s Twitter feed on Saturday, hours ahead of the gig.

Festival director Anita Bigsby said: “I’d known for a week that he might be performing and wanted to, and was rehearsing with Grey Wolf. But he didn’t want any publicity for it at all. It was only on the the day we got the go ahead to start shouting it out.”

She said the following night at the castle, which saw a mix of vintage swing and modern electro beats with the Electro Swing Circus also went down a storm.

“It was really vibrant and upbeat,” she said.

Robert Plant’s performance follows another surprise appearance at Tenbury Music Festival two weeks ago.

Fleetwood Mac references Robert…

This one from TBL contributor Hiroshi:

Just come back from Mac’s third and final Birmingham show at the Genting Arena that was postponed from 9th of June, its original date, because of a member’s illness. A stellar two and half hours’ performance.
Lindsey Buckingham dedicated Big Love, a solo acoustic performance, to Robert Plant who was present at the venue according to his comment.
And then Stevie Nicks joined him, saying “I also dedicate this song to Robert”, and together they performed Landslide.
“Thank you, Robert Plant”, Stevie commented as they finished it.

……………………..

Jerry Weintraub 1937 – 2015:

Sad to hear the passing of promoter/producer Jerry Weintraub – who worked with a string of high profile acts including Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and Led Zeppelin. He promoted Zep on their latter era US tours. I remember a Melody Maker interview with him back in the mid 70s – describing his promoting negotiating skills Jerry said ”I play the telephone like Jimmy Page plays the guitar…” RIP.

UK Vinyl Sales So far:
Good to see Zep well represented…
FEB 26 FOUR

 The Official Top 40 Biggest Selling Vinyl Albums of 2015 so far – Noel Gallagher and Led Zeppelin leads the way for vinyl sales as we reach 2015’s halfway mark: According to the BPI, demand for LPs has risen again this year by 56.3%; and at its current rate of growth, could reach 2 million sales by the end of 2015.

In our rundown of vinyl album sales so far this year, British bands dominate, with room for only one non-UK act in the Top 10.

It’s a double celebration for Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, claiming both the biggest selling vinyl album AND single of the year to date.

Chasing Yesterday, Noel’s second collection of material since Oasis disbanded, tops the vinyl albums countdown.

Chasing Yesterday was the first ever Number 1 on the Official Vinyl Albums Chart, launched in April 2015, and was the fastest-selling album of the year upon its release in March.

Led Zeppelin’s enduring appeal affords them two entries in our Top 10 with 2014’s reissues of 1975’s Physical Graffiti and 1971’s Four Symbols landing at 2 and 8 respectively.

Winners of Best British Group at the 2015 BRIT Awards, Royal Blood, see their debut pitch up in fourth. On original release in 2014, the self-titled release was the fastest-selling British rock debut album in three years in the UK.

Blur’s first studio album in 12 years, The Magic Whip, is already the fifth best-selling vinyl album of the year after just two months on sale.

Led Zeppelin Over Europe 1980 – 35 years Gone

This summer marks the 35th anniversary of the final Led Zeppelin tour – a low key 14 date trek taking in Germany, Belgium, Holland, Austria and Switzerland. To begin a month long celebration of that final tour, I have reduced the price of the Feather In the Wind book for a limited period to just £8 including postage and packing.

This is a fantastic opportunity to invest in the definitive account of the tour at a bargain price – yet more Led Zep summer 2015 reading.

For those who have yet to indulge, to give you a flavour of the contents – this is an extract from chapter three of the book. Rejuvenation Over Europe: Up Close and Personal.

This is my overview of the gigs that I caught – this extract picks the tour up in Mannheim…

Mannheim, July 2nd, 1980. Hello July, hello Mannheim. It’s dull and raining. Zeppelin are due to play two gigs here. There are just about two main attractions in this town as far as I see it. One is the McDonalds hamburger joint in the centre of the town, the other, a picturesque water fountain near the hotel the entourage book in at.

The concerts are held at an extraordinary place called the Eisstadion. Normally an ice hockey arena, its roofing is partly canvas. The audience assembled tonight is every bit as crazy as in Frankfurt. A strong American showing, mixed in with the German fanatics and a few English representatives. The group are set for an early start but the proposed 7.30pm kick off passes. Jimmy hasn’t even arrived yet. However, I spot Bonzo backstage nervous but itching to play. Before 8.00 though, everyone is in and ready. Lights low and out of the backstage darkness comes the crew, headed by Peter Grant ushering his boys on to the stage once again. They walk into the glare of light… the audience crumble. This is getting to be a familiar ritual.

CR-4

Tonight is hot and sticky. The group play as ever, like their very existence depended on it. In the Evening is a standout. It’s such a titanic arrangement. Jimmy swinging that tremolo arm like he’s some demented version of Hank Marvin. Robert strutting through the chorus, “Oh I need your love… I’ve gotta have… ” And, of course, that delicately slowed passage with Jonesy’s lilting additions. One other slight alteration comes when Robert gets to the line “One day soon it’s got to stop, gotta stop! Gotta stop!” and as he repeats the line, Bonzo emphasises the statement with a couple of bass drum hammerings. Powerful. I notice during All My Love that Robert has altered one of the lines slightly. He sings “Ours is the love of all the warmth we can find” instead of “ours is the fire.” That number too, is outstanding.

Jimmy is again moving around like some madman enthused by the wall of sound surrounding him. In Kashmir, Robert gets so carried away he almost sings one verse twice. Not that it detracts from the performance. That’s another aspect I haven’t touched on yet. As much as this set is together, it’s not flawless. Cues are sometimes missed, Jimmy drops his pick – I mean it ain’t perfect always, but then rock ‘n’ roll wasn’t meant to be note perfect and stereotyped. The rawness is there (and the mellowness too, if you look for it). Their playing is so adventurous; at times it walks a tightrope. One false step out of line and it will crumble. With the chemistry of the four blending together and peaking so often, it rarely fails.

Trampled Underfoot is an example of that tonight. Jimmy pushes everyone to the limit with a blistering run… and Robert… Robert just smiles. He knows…

Robert tells the people about his latest sketch.

“Just take yer hand, imagine you’ve a false nose and pull it back and forth, now say, ‘Aye thank yew.’ Let me tell you, it soon caught on!

During Stairway Robert puts in another ad-lib. After the words “I hope so” he sings repeatedly, “I keep on choppin’ and changin’. Choppin’ and changin’, choppin’ and changin’.” I spot another magic moment here too. Just as Robert is about to throw away his tambourine after the solo, he glances over to the side of the stage. Spotting Peter Grant in the wings, Robert bows to him and Peter nods back his approval. A sensitive touch.

Two encores – Rock And Roll has Jimmy duck-walking the stage while on Whole Lotta Love he sings the chorus with Robert and later, during the Let That Boy Boogie finale, the old lemon squeeze kid throws in some lines from Elvis Presley’s (Marie’s the Name) His Latest Flame.

“Mannheim – Thank you and good night.”

DL Diary Update:

An intense week here managing the distribution of TBL 39. The magazines arrived on Monday – I’d forgotten what a mammoth task it is preparing the envelopes, stamps and then stuffing the mags into envelopes. With the help of the good lady Janet and Adam, we are now well on the way. This workload will go into next week with the aim to get every copy in transit and on the way to their destination as soon as possible.

margarets party

In between all that, there was a Lewis clan night out : Last Saturday the four of us  -Janet, myself Sam and Adam, attended the 50th birthday party of the good lady Janet’s cousin Margaret. A top night was had – the band hired M.C.E were excellent – aside from a mix of old and new covers, Michael Jackson, Luther Vandross, Daft Punk etc, they did a very funky Whole Lotta Love – we were out on the floor – my knees were a bit sore on Sunday!

On the player: Led Zep How The West Won Tapes Revisited – San Bernardino/ LA Forum/ Long Beach 1972, Berlin 1980 (35 years gone), Wings Venus And Mars (always a summer fave), Cat Stevens Greatest Hits, Burt Bacharach Hitmaker, John Coltrane A Love Supreme and the original Ginger Baker’s Air Force double album on Polydor and the Blind Faith album.

The latter pair was prompted by viewing the Ginger Baker documentary Beware Mr Baker screened by BBC 1 on Tuesday in the Imagine series. In amongst some quite barking mad revelations and reactions from the eccentric percussionist, there was some great early footage of Baker with The Graham Bond Organisation, Cream, Blind Faith and Airforce. After Dave Clark and before I’d heard John Bonham, Ginger Baker was my favourite drummer for a few weeks in 1969. I still love hearing him clattering around the kit – he certainly lacked the finesse of Bonzo but that engaging style lit up the likes of White Room, Sunshine of Your Love , Can’t Find My Way Home, Sweet Wine Man Of Constant Sorrow etc.

I was trying to sort out attending the Robert Plant Festival Live gig at Cannock on Saturday but a few logistical problems have not made this possible and to be honest, I’m completely exhausted and would find it hard to get into the right zone for it all at the moment. The current focus is on getting TBL 39 out there.

In my mind, I may be an eternal 25 year old but physically, all of my 58 years and ten months have caught up with me recently. There’s no real let up with the TBL mail out a priority but that’s the way it is ….I can say the positive reaction to the Five Glorious Nights book and initial reaction to TBL 39  has made, and does make all the hard work absolutely worth it…and a privilege. Thanks again for all your support and inspiring feedback.

Those that are making it to the Robert Plant Forest Live gigs on Friday and Saturday – have a great one…

Dave Lewis, July 9, 2015.

Until next time…

Have a great weekend

Keep listening, keep reading…

    Dave,when I arrived home yesterday afternoon from work TBL 39 was sitting outside my door. Needless to say any previous plans for the evening were pushed back and that included dinner. Thank you so much for all the hard work and time and passion you put into this! It really brings so much joy for so many. Wonderful sit down with Mr. Page and yes, it did feel as if it was just a chat/conversation between pals. Thank you for sharing some great insight. Additionally, due to Scott’s section, I had to revisit the simply wonderful, raw and energetic evening of January 5th, 1969 while reading. Keep up the great work!
    Thank you again!

    The new TBL is superb…have only gotten a little ways in but I can already tell that it’s a great one. The Jimmy interview was wonderful, kudos again Dave, that’s just phenomenal work getting an audience with him not once but twice. Thanks for the question about Swan Song, and I was pleased to hear his comments about that. It wasn’t worked on and developed further, but what little there is of it is one of the truly great outtakes. And of course Jimmy referred back to it years later and fleshed it out very nicely at a time where he needed some material.

    Richard Grubb’s analyses of the reissues are really excellent and thought-provoking. Houses was the moment where I realized CDs were a bit of a lie. I was listening to the original CD issued in the late 80s, and one day when Over The Hills was playing, I realized that I wasn’t feeling Jones and Bonzo on that track, and I thought “wait a minute”…I pulled out the vinyl which I hadn’t played in a while, and it absolutely blew the CD straight out of the water…since then I’ve always been aware of the compromise (they DON’T sound “better than vinyl”), but I’ve indulged CD out of convenience. I might have to rectify that one day…

    Jimmy’s done a fantastic job with these reissues despite whatever whining has taken place (some of it from yours truly as well)…I really think he’s given us most/all of the previously buried treasure, I know he takes all of this very seriously, he wants to give the fans something that will be worth their while.

    And it bears remembering that Jimmy and Jonesy came from the world of sessions work…studio time is expensive, there was no waffling there, they didn’t lounge around in the studio and wait for some “inspiration” to miraculously strike. They had to get in there and get on with it, or the producers would find someone else who would. They undoubtedly carried that ethos forward into Zeppelin, and as Jimmy puts it “routined” the material before they ever set foot in a studio, and once there it was down to business. In that context, it’s no surprise that there isn’t a vault full of unreleased songs.

    That said (and I’ve only heard so far the officially leaked previews of the companion material for the final 3), there’s a lot of great stuff here overall. Granted, a few tracks are very similar to what’s on the original LP, but there’s also some real gems. Bathroom Sound is one of my favorites, it’s just the three instrumentalists locked in and letting it rip as only they could. That’s a great one for blasting in the car while rolling down the highway!

    On the subject of drummers, Bruce Rowland, succumbed to cancer on 29 June 2015. Bruce played with Joe Cocker at Woodstock; while his stint with Fairport Convention included the fine albums Rising for the Moon and Bonny Bunch of Roses, together with manning the stool as part of the first act of Knebworth 1 in 1979. RIP

  • Dave M said:

    Always a nice feeling to step in from work and find the TBL brown envelope has dropped through the letter box.

    Will get stuck into it this weekend – probably with a glass or two of pinot grigio along the way!

    Enjoyed your chat/interview with Jimmy. You ask the questions the diehards would ask.

    Keep up the good work.

  • Byron said:

    TBL 39 arrived this morning, this looks rammed with info, have you reduced the font size to cram more in, cos it looks like it’s gonna take a while to wade through. Will have to make sure the fridge is well stocked for a quality feet up weekend.
    Thanks Dave.
