If so, what tracks?
Because he almost always tracked the band live, and they almost always miked the drums in the "Glyn Johns" pattern (Over head mic 40-60" above drums, side mic equidistant from the snare) which would pick up far too much guitar, and he liked to not put the guitar in an iso booth or anything like that.The Heartbreaker unaccompanied solo is THE textbook LP into cranked Marshall sound, and one of the best ever captured - very high volume and room miked. Why he couldn't have used this tone and other cranked Marshall tones on more Zeppelin solos is a head scratcher.
The amps Page used for Physical Graffiti were Vox AC30'sI prefer his live tone in almost every instance. The one exception might be Since I've Been Loving You-anyone know what he was using there? Actually, his tones on Physical Grafitti were great. It's not that the studio sounds were bad, but, you know, Les Paul/Marshall is hard to beat.
No kidding. Everything about that version is near perfection. It's some of Bonham's finest drumming, the keys are magical, Plant is brilliant, and Page is just amazing.Yeah,.....that's more like it. Why the hell would the cut that out? Up there in the top ten coolest live parts ever recorded.
