There's some great looking PINK FLOYD titles that were just announced today from Sigma..."Dying Of Boredom" 2CD is the 8th release from the label and documents the bands' February 28, 1970 show at the Refectory at Leeds University with what is hinted as an upgraded audience source to what has circulated previously...the ninth release on the Sigma label is called "Acute Danger" 2CD and also indicates a promising upgrade to the Emerson Gym audience recording from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio on November 6, 1971...then, arriving via a generic label Euro DVD is the compilation, "Pro Shot In Europe 1969-1972" which promises "super quality"actually looks to be worth checking out, here's the tracklisting for the 77 minute color DVD:

...the next new release slated from the Tarantura label is that 1981  RAINBOW set  recorded in Nagoya we mentioned on the ticker this other details on the actual CD title just the meantime, Tarantura issued their 2nd Edition of LED ZEPPELIN "For Your Life - Legendary Legend" with an alternate cover, the same approach was taken with the 2nd Edition of their October 10, 1969 disc released on the Black Dog Records Label only this one is titled "French MC Version" which is unedited with announcer voice-overs intact vs. their original issue that sold out in hours which had the French announcer snipets edited out, missing some of the live recording behind them...we should also point out that there is another version of the ZEP reunion show just issued on a generic silver disc production called "It's Been A Long Time" 2CD and utilizes a different tape source...In other ZEPPELIN boot news Empress Valley has re-issued a 2CD version of "Live On Blueberry Hill" which leverages the TMOQ source tape...Wendy Records next title for this Winter of 2008 will be "Tulsa Symphony: Ode To Joy" 2CD bringing what is hopefully a nice, clean presentation of the August 21, 1970 Tulsa audience tape that is really quite nice...

JIMMY PAGE is in Tokyo this week to promote the Mothership collection in Japan, again visiting the "specialty" record shops in the Shinjuku section of Tokyo. After selecting CDs, he started to watch the LED ZEPPELIN show at the O2 Arena on DVD.  In the photo below he is watching “In My Time Of Dying” and he watched it very intently.  Afterwards he was satisfied and gave a big smile. He seemed very impressed with the DVD and requested several copies...
