March 1st, 2017

    Two new titles have been announced by the Lighthouse people, and as expected, nothing new but just a reissues of the old stuff known from past titles.

    Destroyer II is a triple disc sourced from Cleveland on April 28th, 1977.

    Chicago 1973 2nd Night: Master Cassettes is a triple disc from Chicago on July 7th, 1973.

February 27th, 2017

    T2K has announced a reissue of their older title, When The Glass Was Thrown. This 2CD set contains a very good sounding audience tape recorded on Buffalo October 30th, 1969. A slightly diffrent artwork is the only improvement over the original version.

February 22nd, 2017

    Bonzo's Birthday Party is another reissue from the Lighthouse team. This triple disc covers a well known May 31st,1973 show that took place at The Forum, Los Angeles, California on John Bonham's 25th birhtday. It is not know from which sources exactly this title is made.

February 2nd, 2017

    Sonic Boom is a 4 CD limited edition deluxe box set by the Empress Valley and features mono and stereo soundboard for the Hampton Roads Coliseum, Hampton Beach, VA on September 9th, 1971. Announced as much more complete version, in fact this set debuts with restored audio in a stunning quality as stereo and monaural mixes. Each CD set is housed in special paper cases and is enclosed in an exquisite box set with obi.

    Live On Blueberry Hill is a 2CD set from The Forum, Inglewood, CA on September 4th, 1970 released by Lighthouse team. Again, this is a completely pointless title as it not only offers nothing new in terms of material used and quality, but also source transitions are done in a very amateurish way, placing this release far behind from recently released Eat A Peach set (which includes the most definitive version of this show so far).

January 25th, 2017

    A routine reissues are about to continue with next three releases from the Far East this week.

    The Performance Of Kells is 2CD set of audience tape recorded in National Boxing Stadium, Dublin on March 6th, 1971 and features mediocre quality recording released few times in the past.

    Hampton 1971 is the Lighthouse 2CD release of a soundboard tape from Hampton Roads Coliseum September 9th, 1971. It looks like this is label's answer to the EV announce of a much more complete version of this show due this year so again nothing new with this title.

    Alexandra Palace 1971 is another Lighthouse production. A 2CD set covers audience tape for their final 1971 performance that took place on December 23rd in London. Since both London gigs have been recently released by the Empress Valley on a deluxe Ally Pally Hard Rock Daze set, this is another set to avoid.

January 18th, 2017

    The latest Graf Zeppelin release is Fractured Ribs. Featuring tracks from the show at the Dallas Convention Center on the 18th May, 1973 it also includes tracks from the bands show at the Denver Coliseum on 25th May, 1973.

    Boston 1973 is a 2CD set from the Boston Garden on July 20th, 1973 made by Lighthouse team.

January 12th, 2017

    The Eat A Peach label has just announced the very first title of the year, Feel All Right - Live In Montreux. This is 4CD deluxe set, including legendary Montreux Casino performance on March 7th, 1970 and released just few months earlier by the EV folks, is combined from great sounding audience and newly surfaced soundboard tapes. Both sources have been treated carefully to preserve their original quality. This set, assembling four individual paper sleeves with discs in a cartoon envelope, features three individual contents:

    • The whole show is presented on the first two discs as audience / soundboard mix.
    • Two unique radio broadcasts are collected on the third disc.
    • The raw soundboard tape is included on the fourth disc, adding a short audience filler for the very start of How Many More Times.

    Madison Square Garden 1970 is a 4CD set by the Lighthouse people and again, it doesn't offer anything new but just reissuing afternoon and evening New York shows that took place on September 19th, 1970. Since these tapes have appeared already on Eat A Peach label last year as ultimate versions, this new set is dedicated only for completists and for those, who weren't able to purchase that title at the time, when it was issued.
