GearSmith wrote:Thanks for the topo suggestions. Yeah, I just did an A/B comparison of yesshows and the studio album. I agree that it is a fairly good, intense rendition of ctte. Personally, I still prefer the studio cut. My main reason is the opening sequence with Steve's frenetic guitar playing. Although he approaches it on yesshows, he just seems so much more close to the ragged edge (no pun) on the studio track. The studio track always sounds more risky to me than any of the live ones. But when one has the benefit of several takes, perhaps that is to be expected.
OTOH, I hear some of Zeppelin's live material and Page's playing is often even more risky an brilliant live than in the studio. 'Course he has his share of trainwrecks and pedestrain playing too, but just about every live version of 'Since I've Been Loving You" I prefer to the studio version.

Looks like this concert IS being seeded on DIME, but I have not been able to get an account on DIME yet becuase it always says the system is full.
