Exclusive Preview: ‘Led Zeppelin Live’ Photo Book – Variety
They have their detractors, sure, but it’s hard to deny that Led Zeppelin were one of the greatest rock bands in history — and also one of the all-time greatest live acts, which doesn’t follow as naturally as it might seem.
Bruce Springsteen often says that a great band doesn’t necessarily need the best players but it absolutely needs “the right players” — and Zeppelin was that rare band that combines both. Each member was one of the all-time greatest at their roles, and on their night — as can be heard on recordings from 1969, 1970, 1971, 1972 and 1975, to name just a few — there were few bands that could touch them.
They were also an incredible band to watch, and Variety is pleased to present an exclusive preview of “Led Zeppelin Live,” a forthcoming book from ACC Editions that includes many rare and previously uncirculated photos of the band from its 1975 and 1977 tours taken by Terry O’Neill, Michael Brennan and Baron Wolman.

Collector Matt Slycord dropped this on Instagram today...
There it is, the beautiful Kroger Exclusive ’55 Gasser from the Hot Wheels 50th Favorites line. Found at…Publix.
This might happen, especially on a model that was supposed to be a Toys R Us exclusive, but for obvious reasons was moved last minute. I assume most will be at Kroger, but you never know.
Nonetheless it is out, so let the search begin. Thanks Matt for sharing.

0DAYROX ► Melodic Rock, AOR, Hard Rock, Prog, Classic Rock news: DEEP PURPLE - Fire In The Sky [Japan Edition 3-CD Career-Spanning remastered] (2018)
DEEP PURPLE stands alongside Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath as part of the Holy Trinity of British hard rock. The list of the band's classic songs is legion, and the influence it's had on successive generations of musicians is both enduring and remarkable.
To celebrate Deep Purple's 50th Anniversary and their upcoming Japanese tour in October, Warner Music Japan just released "Fire In The Sky", a career-spanning 3-CD box including the band's best, fully remastered.
Each CD includes a selection of songs chosen from the 19 Deep Purple studio albums the band recorded between 1968 and 2013. All are original versions, not edited as happened on many 'best of' releases.
This three-disc box dives deeper into Deep Purple's past with 40 songs and includes at least one track from every studio album through "Now What?!"

Here’s a couple of timely TBL Archive pieces…
48 years ago this week the Led Zeppelin III album was issued in the US, to be followed by a UK release later in the month. To mark the occasion here’s the first of a two part  TBL archive special focusing on what remains a pivotal part of the Led Zeppelin catalogue.   
Led Zeppelin III was  released in the US on October 5th. It entered the Billboard chart at number three and by the end of the month had toppled Santana’s Abraxas album to take the top spot. In the UK it was released issued on October 23rd -the distinctive circle wheel sleeve qualified it for Atlantic’s Deluxe series with an expensive price tag of £47 shillings and 6d . This did little to deter the record buying public of the day and it entered the UK chart at number one.

What an awesome special 50th Anniversary car from the Hot Wheels mainline set! But it's not just any ordinary 50th Anniversary car, that's right, it's a super! Too bad there's no Real Riders version of the 50th Anniversary rims, oh well. Still super cool nonetheless!

TBL Archive Special: If it’s September…it must be time for Live On Blueberry Hill…
Led Zeppelin Live On Blueberry Hill – the pioneering bootleg album …still a thrill…47 years gone…
48 years ago on September 4 1970, Led Zeppelin performed a memorable show at the Los Angles Forum – it was captured by more than one enterprising fan and subsequently released on a variety of bootlegs. It remains for me and countless others one of THE essential Led Zeppelin recordings.
To mark the 48th anniversary of what we know and love as Live On Blueberry Hill, here is an TBL archive special this is one of the chapters in the Celebration II – The Tight But Loose Files book published by Omnibus Press in 2003.
Bootlegs and Led Zeppelin have been synonymous for over three decades. Despite manager Peter Grant’s heavy-handedness when dealing with those he caught taping their shows, the band are the most bootlegged act of all time, outstripping even The Beatles, Dylan, Springsteen and the Stones. Their final seven shows in the UK alone (five at Earls Court and two at Knebworth) account for over 100 different releases between them. Just about every known amateur recording of the band’s live gigs has made it on to CD. Given the length of their stage shows, the CD format, with its 75-minute playing time, is tailor made for presenting Zeppelin in concert, but even before the flood of digital compact format titles that emerged in the early Nineties there was no shortage of vinyl Led Zeppelin bootlegs.

0DAYROX ► Melodic Rock, AOR, Hard Rock, Prog, Classic Rock news: NAZARETH - Loud & Proud! Anthology Box Set [3-CD remastered] (2018)
While NAZARETH are recording a new album, BMG just released "Loud & Proud! Anthology Box Set [3-CD remastered]" that celebrates 50 years as a band of those hard rocking Scots.
The set offers a snapshot journey through the band’s five-decade career with key tracks chosen from each of their studio albums.
Nazareth were formed in the late 60′s, from the ballroom cover band The Shaddettes, and the original line-up of vocalist Dan McCafferty, guitarist Manny Charlton, bassist Pete Agnew and drummer Darrell Sweet turned professional at the turn of the '70s, with their eponymous debut following shortly after.
The Nazareth sound was a hard bluesy rock with Dan’s whisky-soaked gravelly vocals. Their breakthrough, following a tour with Deep Purple, was the Roger Glover produced Razamanaz that spawned the hit singles 'Bad Bad Boy' and 'Broken Down Angel'.
Later covers of 'Love Hurts' and 'This Flight Tonight' would also be era defining.

Jimmy Page's website has shed new light on the early days of Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin News
Jimmy Page published a new “On This Day” entry on his official website on September 25 which mentioned the fiftieth anniversary of Led Zeppelin and showed some interesting information about the band’s first recordings.
Page’s website is updated every day with an entry that relates to that day in history, or a new announcement. The pages aren’t archived, and it’s rare for a new entry to be published.
Page’s new entry includes a worksheet from Rak Music Management in September 1968 which shows the dates and locations of Led Zeppelin’s early rehearsals and the first recording sessions for their debut album.
Here’s the text displayed on Page’s website:
“The inception of the epic Led Zeppelin I
So we’re in the 50th anniversary of Led Zeppelin, and on this day on 25th September 1968 heralds the inception of the epic Led Zeppelin I album: the moment whereby I would be able to manifest the sounds and layers I had heard in my head and also prove my status as a producer.
The group went to Studio No.1, Olympic Studios, 117 Church Road, Barnes, London, SW13, having extensively rehearsed the material for Led Zeppelin I at my house in Pangbourne and we had had the opportunity to perform a good percentage of that material during a few concerts in Scandinavia and the UK to experience our music in a live situation under the clandestine cloak of the Yardbirds. In those days, the studio time was scattered and limited over a few days in September and October, dictated by Olympic’s availability.
Thus, with the aid of my old friend Glyn John’s masterful engineering, at 11pm on Wednesday 25th September 1968, we began our recordings and embarked upon committing this eclectic powerhouse to tape.
Much has been speculated about the initial recordings, so I thought it would be useful to show the worksheet from RAK that gives the dates and times that we were scheduled initially to go in. It makes fascinating reading.”
And here are images of how the site appeared, and the worksheet...
