We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

300th compilation at Baistophe! When we started this little blog, almost two years ago, we didn't think it'd go that far and, most of all, that we'd still have the energy and passion to keep it running.
Thankfully, we've had people coming and going, giving us their work and, thus, helping us grow. Let them be thanked. Thanks also go to the many people who visited and commented on our compilations, having their support obviously is one of the reasons we dedicated ourselves to the impossible task at hand: offering to the world, in all modesty, our vision of every artist here covered.
And so ABO#300... Just like with #100 (Frank Zappa) & #200 (Deep Purple), we felt we had to "baistophe" a big name which was still missing in our collection. Led Zeppelin was the logical choice though many others may have been chosen (watch out for ABO#400, 500, 600, etc.).
We don't think we have to introduce the oh so influencial band Led Zeppelin is, the internet litterally crawls under the sum of information on them. So, here's a 5 Cds boxset including a double studio Cd and a triple live, including top notch bootleg recordings, covering the career of what might very well be the greatest hard rock band of all time. Enjoy.

1 - III (1970)
2 - IV (1971)
3 - I (1969)
4 - Physical Graffiti (1975)
5 - II (1969)

6 - Houses of the Holy (1973)
7 - In Through the Out Door (1979)

8 - CODA (1982)
9 - Presence (1976)

Hello, Regarding the Live Zep...The last 2 cuts are only hearable in the left speaker, Whole Lotta Love and How Many More Times???? davek

Ayah Gagöhn said...

Hey ! you're right !

I think this is the encoding from wav to mp3 that has gone wrong.

I fix it as soon as possible.

Rochacrimson said...

The Live set will be post with a new correct link ayah?

kingpossum said...

I've heard of this band.

Ayah Gagöhn said...

@Rochacrimson : Yes, but not yet. Just watch the "last updates" window on the right of this blog to be warned of this reup.

Congrats on 300!!!
And wow, one hell of a 300th to boot.

Clap, clap, clap......

Vaughn said...

Hey Ayah,
Thanks for this mammoth undertaking!
When you repost those two defective songs could you do a post with just those please? That was a gigantic file that took awhile to download.

Ayah Gagöhn said...

Ah la vache Stefan, je n'avais pas vu ton classement ! rien à voir avec le mien ! :

1- II (1969)
2- I (1968)
3- IV (1971)
4- Houses Of The Holy (1973)
5- III (1970)
6- Presence (1976)
7- Coda (1978)
8- Physical Graffiti (1974)
9- In Through The Out Door (1979)

quoique le I et le IV je l'es inverserais bien ...

S.F.P. said...

Franchement, à part ton classement extrêmement étrange de "Physical Graffiti", et considérant que les 6 premiers de ma liste se tiennent en un mouchoir de poche, nos listes ne sont pas si dissemblables que ça...
J'aimerais bien avoir ton "code couleur" cependant et aussi la raison pour laquelle tu classes "Presence" si haut alors que c'est, pour moi, l'album le plus terne et le moins remarquable de Led Zeppelin.
Ca mériterait preque qu'on ouvre un 'appreciation thread' sur Progressia, tiens... ^^

Ayah Gagöhn said...

alors 1-3 vert foncé
4-7 vert clair
8 jaune
9 orange

première explication :
Physical Graffiti est un recueil d'inédits datant de 1970 à 1975. Certains sont dispensable et d'autres sont, en effet, de réelles poutres. Cependant je trouve cet album un peu triste. Un peu moins en version vinyl cependant.

deuxième explication :
In trough the out door me fait chier comme un rat mort et aucun titre ne me fait kiffer. Carouselambra est chiant, surtout avec ses 10'28. Seul titre que j'aurais sauvé : I'm Gonna Crawl.

troisième explication :
Presence a beau avoir cet effet de platitude à cause de certains titres mais - merde ! - Ten Years Gone, Achille's Last Stand et Nobody's Fault But Mine, ça fait plus de la moitié de l'album et, donc, ça ne peut pas faire une daube infâme.

S.F.P. said...

J'ai découvert Led Zep avec Physical Graffiti... En fait avec le I mais c'est Physical, écouté en second, qui m'a "mis dedans", ce qui explique mon attachement à cet album.

In Through est le dernier que j'ai découvert après l'avoir longtemps évité à cause de sa funeste réputation or, j'y ai découvert un Led Zep en pleine forme, essayant de nouvelles choses ce qui ne me fait que regretter la séparation du groupe.

Presence, j'ai jamais pu... A part les deux que j'ai ressorties et ce malgré leurs longueurs (d'ailleurs j'ai édité une intro). Ce n'est pas un mauvais album mais il me fait l'effet d'un monolithe dans lequel j'ai le plus grand mal à rentrer.

Et donc, à part ces deux albums, nous sommes assez d'accord je trouve.

Ayah Gagöhn said...

OK, finalement nos différence se font sur des appréciations plus personnelles qu'artistique. Pour le côté monolithique de Presence, ça peut s'expliquer par l'objet représenté dans différentes scènes sur la pochette ^^

kingpossum said...

Of course it was a joke when I posted my comment, and it was meant as the highest compliment to the Baistophe crew. What a brave undertaking indeed!

And well pulled off. I'm likely in the minority for claiming Presence as my personal favorite--and in my opinion the quintessential Zeppelin record--and that's fine. That's what the Baistophe is all about.

It's about simply enjoying the essence of the artist whatever our individual preferences may be (and I have been enlightened about certain artists and re-examined my thoughts on the artist based on the Baistophe postings, which is great).

Many thanks, as always.

S.F.P. said...

I got the joke 'Possum. I didn't think someone as cultured as you had just "heard" of Led Zeppelin.
As for Presence, an album I don't dislike but still think to be the Zeps' worst, each to his own I guess... ;)
