Now that takes me back... I discovered Roy Harper through Page, Gilmour and lots of other famous fans, and later on went to some lovely small club gigs, I guess in the mid to late 80s. "Whatever happened to Jugula" was an album of my formative years that I have never really been back to, but helped me to understand how to serve a song rather than my own guitar playing interests. Thinking back over the timing, it must have been cathartic for Page to get back to his roots after one of the foundations of his adult life and career had been ripped out from under him. I loved what they did over the years, and never knew they revisited it.

I still remember after the "interval" at one gig (Harper didn't have support acts that I remember), wanders back onto stage and says, "I'm not saying that was good, but if I die tonight, roll me up and smoke me." It was a different time, seems like it could have been hundreds of years ago, and is maybe a cliche, but fond memories!

Thanks for sharing!

Liam

Does Jimmy Page still believe that I Can't Quit You, Babe from CODA is still from a sound check?

Actually i did read a bit on that subject in this book......... He used some new recording gear he purchased to add more guitar parts and other tricks to a live performance that was recorded and used for Coda...... i can't recall the exact performance or the device he used.... though he has detailed time and dates for many of his recording, as well as what he used and how he used it.

Thank you for sharing! I put it on my Amazon wish list-maybe Santa Claus will get it for me :)

Here some of the amps that are detailed in the book.... that's just later Zep live gear..... there are a great deal more on the recording rigs he used.... some aren't even guitar amps though that is what he used them for. Need to get the book amigo!

The pics here doesn't even put a dent in the info here....

....while this book is not a text book on how to replicate Jimmy’s recordings or live sound it does provide some insight on what he used to get there.

You mean the Vox AC30?

If so .... then Yes.

There is a enormous guitar and equipment glossary in the back that makes it easy to find stuff.
