(1) 1996-02-15 Osaka, Japan (AUD/Hoochie Coochie CD's 13-14)
This is another superb sounding show and a more heavy rocking one I think too. Jimmy Page is doing a lot of ad-lib guitar playing on the fly, just like in the old days, in the specific concert. And Robert Plant is singing a lot more Led Zeppelin sounding this night too.
For those who have been collecting the live shows and recordings of Led Zeppelin over the years, you'll hear what I am talking about in reference to it sounding more Led Zeppelin like on this night. You know how the songs were played through the years in Led Zeppelin and this night has a lot of the "old Zeppelin" styles of playing as well as some specific playing from years in the past. Even a song Page and Plant played a lot, like "Heartbreaker" or "What Is And What Should Never Be", sounds much more 1970's oriented in this show than like a normal night of Page and Plant playing it.
The previous show in Tokyo, the 1996-02-13 show, Page and Plant played a lot more mellow songs and in a more mellow style. But this first night in Osaka, they're rocking out a lot more and they still have the great mellow songs like "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" too. This is a superb sounding show as well as a superb performance from everyone involved in the concert.
The new song for this night is "Wonderful One" and I don't think it had been played in any of the Japan shows in the previous six days. Robert Plant introduces "Wonderful One" by simply saying "Here's a new song." And I'm really glad "Ten Years Gone" was put back in too. I've always loved that song. After all, in years past we were told that is was a song about "the first love, the one you never forget." And it really is even though it seems like it has been ten decades gone today!
The sample video below is from the 2 DVD LPCM audio Third Eye Productions remastered release a few years ago. It is NOT the audio from this Hoochie Coochie 2 disc recording being shared here. I'm just using it as a sample of the music I'm talking about as well as a glimpse into this night's show nineteen years ago.
Since nobody responded to my post when I mentioned I'd upload the DVD's for a show or two if anyone wanted them or asked for any of them, well, I'm not going through the work and time it takes to upload them then. You can still let me know and I'll be happy to upload whatever when I have time later on.
I'm having troubles embedding the same video I posted on YouTube into this post for some reason. So I'll just post the link to it on YouTube instead of wasting any more time. I added the extra text at the beginning of the video and it's not on the original video. Here's the YouTube link:.
