Man, I would have loved to travel to Paris just to see this event. That would be amazing!!! I tried to listen to the live stream on my Ipad but the live-stream sucks up here. I did hear a little bit of the new remasters from Led Zep II and III. What I heard was extremely impressive! They definitely sounded different than the original Led Zep albums.
Not a lot of fans know this but Jimmy Page is a master in the studio. This is one of the things that he is so underrated at. He gets a lot of recognition for his guitar playing, of course but it’s his recording and producing that is overlooked the most. If you read Jimmy’s interviews in the past, the man took the studio very seriously. He knows exactly what sounds he wants out of Led Zeppelin music. He certainly didn’t fuck around for sure!!!
Without Jimmy Page’s masterful producing and recording skills, Led Zeppelin wouldn’t have become legends that they are now. Their records would have been shit if somebody else recorded them.
I think I’m definitely gonna get the remasters. People accused them of a “cash grab” with these remasters but after thinking about it a while… I disagree.
This is just Jimmy’s way of keeping Led Zep’s legacy alive. There’s a ton of new generation of music fans who probably never heard of Led Zeppelin and I think that’s the point of the remasters to help attract newer people to their music. Plus, the longtime fans of Led Zep can celebrate the music again with these new remasters. I’m definitely looking forward to them!
I’m sure the Paris live event will be all over youtube soon so I’ll get to watch it then.
