Led Zeppelin: The Complete British Broadcasting Corporation Radio Sessions (FLAC_SB/FM_4 CD)

This is a superb EVSD release of the BBC broadcasts of Led Zeppelin live between 1969 and 1971.  I'm not reorganizing the build of this upload because it was done right (or at least how I like it) by the original uploader.  In fact, other than the areas I fill in with my own information in this posting and a few spelling errors in the original text file I fixed (on my page only), I'm saving some times and doing a copy and paste of the setlist and details describing what is on each disc.  And I haven't changed a single thing in the file set.  It's just as I got it.  I did test for lossiness and SBE's and there were no issues at all with either of those potential problems.  So, it was already good to go (or upload).

I'm not exactly sure what the true sources of these shows are?  Are they off of the master tapes?  Are they recorded via FM radio broadcasts?  There is no information given regarding the sources.  But from the sound, I have a feeling they came from the BBC master tapes for the most part.  Like I said, I don't know?  But the sound is superb!

One last note here relating to the sources of these recordings is I'm not tagging/labeling these as FM BX (or FM broadcast) at the bottom of my posting where the labels are.  The reason for this is I don't think these are off-air recordings where somebody taped these from their home at the time of broadcast.  I've got versions of most of these shows where that is the case and you can tell by the audio's fidelity as well as the cuts and similar markings indicating that is the case.  Sure, there are some superb FM broadcast shows circulating amongst traders of all kinds of bands.  But the fact that each of these recordings bear no hint of being taped by someone at home, and with such superb sound quality, I really do not think they're "FM BX" or home recordings from off-air broadcasts at all.  If anyone knows more about the source of these recordings EVSD released in this box set, please leave a comment and let us know.

This is the best, complete source compilation for these Led Zeppelin BBC performances I've ever seen.  Even the radio broadcasts of these shows were usually incomplete reportedly back in the days they were broadcast.  For instance, the 1971 Paris Theatre (in London) show cut out the "Minnesota Blues" part in "Whole Lotta Love". These are all excellent recordings of excellent shows from 1969 through 1971 of Led Zeppelin's early radio years as well as the interviews that went along with the programming.  And there are a few extra gems in this 4 disc set too that I'll let you find for yourself :-)

I hope you enjoy this gem...and if you like Led Zeppelin, then I know you will enjoy it...
