Day 2 of the tour June 18, 1980 Cologne performance recorded on the sound board.
■ Completely recorded missing parts complemented by the same day audience sound source.
Although Led Zeppelin made his debut in 1968, Jimmy Page was initially formed, he said he was lost as to whether to pursue acoustic as a direction of the band or to go on a hardrock route. And finally choosing hard rock seems to be due to the existence of Bonzo. Bonzo ‘s drumming is unique as it makes it decisive, it was an unparalleled thing that makes a difference from the other drummers. It can be said that Bonzo is also a Jimihenian-like existence in drums, as Jimi Hen did not permit similar existence either later or earlier. John Paul Jones says as the first impression of a group of four people in a small studio, “I was convinced that this band will be great by listening to the performance of John Bonham.” It can be said that the existence of bonzo has greatly influenced the determination of Zeppelin’s musicality.
Led Zeppelin who crawled through the 70’s in a stroke was a symbol of “the decade” that formed the era. However, unlike musical instruments, plants that have to show their own vocalizations are overturned by the throat from the early stages of the band, after the tour in 1973, they will take the injured throat surgery. Therefore, the tour which was held every year since the debut has not been done only in 1974. Then waiting for recovery after surgery again in 1975 a large national tour, more legendary London took Earls Court continuous performances. After a year’s blank again Zeppelin started. However, the unhappiness that strikes the band one after another will result in greatly limiting the activities after that. First of all, in 1975, the plant fractured his legs in a car accident, the tour was canceled, and he was devoted to treatment again. As a result, no tour was done in 1974, following 1974. “Presence” recorded during this time is told that the plant sang with a wheelchair singing.
In 1977 the band will start again. Plant changed the singing law, with the help of equipment again, great Red Led Zeppelin again, a large nationwide tour that has never been done. This 1977 tour is a prestigious collection, coupled with the completion of the new album ‘Presence’ at that time, it is a very popular tour among fans. In particular, continuous performances at MSG and LA are positioned as important concerts remaining in Zeppelin history. However, during the second half of the tour, the misfortune comes when the eldest son of the plant Kallak dies of viral infection. With the plant shocked by his son’s death, the band will be forced to stop its indefinite activity.
Since its debut, it was Red Zeppelin, a large-scale tour that involved large and small tours, but in 1974, following 1976, it was not in the state to do any tour in 1978. After that, she appeared in Nebworth Festival in 1979 and performed 2 performances in Copenhagen as its warming up gig and performed a total of 4 performances this year, but it is far from the bands before that I can not deny the feeling. It might be influenced by the blank of the band and the condition of the plant, but is not the biggest reason why Zeppelin’s musicality was a little out of harmony with the times?
In the late 1970s, punk was at its peak in the times. Punk as a total living style has been greatly accepted by young people, from singing extreme lyrics of dissidents to simple fun and challenging while playing style, and not only music but also fashion, and Led Zeppelin etc It was regarded as an old existence like a dinosaur which became too big to be immobilized. The time had to change from moment to moment, and it was time to be conscious of it also Zeppelin.
The album “In Through The Outdoor” was recorded in November 1978 and was released in 1979. It was always Jimmy Paige who had the leadership of the band until then, but this album reflected his color strongly as if he had transferred its initiative to John Paul Jones ing. In contrast to the previous album “Presence” was a keyboardless album, in this album the keyboard was pushed out to the front, credits are being made with the number of songs exceeding Jimmy even in composition. And with this announcement of the album, the European tour was announced in 1980. The tour for the first time in 3 years entitled TOUR OVER EUROPE was a small scale with all 14 performances that would have been like the pre-scheduled national tour scheduled later, and the mass communication is dry in the UK It was announced to avoid Europe and to go around Europe with West Germany as the center.
【1980 TOUR OVER EUROPE】
The European tour of 1980 was a mysterious tour in real time, unlike the present where soundboard sound sources are widely distributed so far. The state of the stage that can be seen in the picture is a rough style plant called T-shirt in jeans, John Paul Jones who trimmed her hair shortly, wiped out the atmosphere of the past 70’s, strongly touched the 80’s that will come It is conscious. And in the stage, Jimmy Page is surprisingly speaking MC, it is a sight that was not seen before. It might be that Zeppelin himself searched for a style of a new era. On the other hand, however, not to make the times but to comply with the times, so to speak, the so-called comprehensive attitude, was also able to predict the conservation and the end of the band.
The concert is unexpected and starts with the same yard birds ‘”Train Kept A Rollin'” as in 1969. It may be a sign of consciousness to return to the origin when opening a long blank. From the new album “IN THROUGH THE OUTDOOR” it remained in three songs “In The Evening”, “Hot Dog” and “All My Love”, and all others are replays of past songs. In addition, the overall compact configuration, the show fits within about 2 hours in total. Long “dazzled”, “no quarter”, “Moby Dick” etc. are all omitted, it is a very simple stage. Although the main part of the concert is common to each performance, the encore is almost a daily set list.
【COLOGNE Show on 18th June 1980】
Germany where the cathedral stands is a concert in Cologne. This day is the second day of the tour following Dortmund. The encore of this day is “communication breakdown”. Although it is a performance with few pre-launch boards, it is an excellent title recorded with a high-quality sound board. This soundboard is perfect sound quality, but there are cuts in 3 songs. First of all, about two minutes in the songs of “ACHILLES LAST STAND” and “STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN” for about 30 seconds of the ending of “THE RAIN SONG” respectively. In this work, I complete the concert by complementing them with the first appearance audience sound source. Although it is a key audience sound source, it is a very excellent time with the era of 1980 years, it is not inferior to the main sound board sound source, and rather it is better to think that this is better. High sound quality It is something. It is surprising that there is not much sense of incongruity when listening to editing places.
Also the pitch adjustment is perfectly matched as Wendy’s label always does. The sound board sound source used as the main work of this work is a first generation generation, but it is probably a marking at the time of dropping from the master, a pitch change is seen in a halfway place such as the beginning of a song It was. The early stage was limited to the pitch adjustment that was not done strictly so far, but in this work it is an appeal point that the pitch is corrected finely and it is becoming Pramai zero.
And as a bonus track, we recorded the three songs mentioned above, which were required to be supplemented by the audience sound source, as an audience tone generator. The main part was a form supplementing it with the main sound board, but with the intention of recording in the state without cutting in the song, here is an audience sound source of three songs recorded as an uncut version.
【TOUR OVER COLOGNE 1980】
This work is recorded on June 18, 1980 Cologne performance on the second day of the tour on the sound board. The missing part is supplemented with the first appearance audience sound source and it is a complete recording. Both use the source of First Generation, which is what sounds like it can not hope any more. Adjustment of pitch has also been perfectly adjusted. In addition, in this volume as a bonus track it contains an unedited version of only three songs of AUD that were supplemented with SBD + AUD. This is the best title for both sound quality and content. As a concert with fewer already-released boards, it seems that there are many fans who will hear for the first time in this work.
