Led Zeppelin/No Quarter bootleg

Question
Hi Sal. My question regards the bootleg,'No Quarter' recorded at Earls court '75. I am aware that this is a very rare record but can't seem to find any explaination why this is the case. Is there a story behind this release and to why so few copies exist? Best Regards, James

Answer
Hi James ,thanks for the question,No Quarter was a great rare lp that is known to have only 50 pressings distributed before the rest were confiscated and most likely destroyed by the authorities or the plant where they were made as put out of business by the authorities. It was also reappeared as "Live In England" and European Tour 75. Today it is selling for about $3000.00. Hope that answers your question.

Experience

I have been obsessed with Zeppelin since 1979 and have collected bootlegs in which I have almost complete tours of 1973,1975,1977,1979,1980 and earlier shows from 69-72.(I really did not care for earlier recordings as the quality was not all there,So I got alot of soundboard recordings).My older cousins saw them in the Singer Bowl in NY and others saw them every tour till 1977.My best friend also saw them in 75 and 77,I saw Plants first tour,2 ARMS concerts,2 Firm shows,I went to Live Aid,Page's Outrider tour,Plants 2nd tour,Page with the Black Crows at Roseland Ballroom in 1999,2 more shows with the crows in 2000,Them Crooked Vultures in 2009,Met Page at the Ritz,met roadies at Oakland 1977 who worked with Rick Derringer also the lawyer who represented Zeppelin for the Oakland debacle. I also have video footage of tours. I also played guitar and I am familiar with all of Page's equiptment,as well as Bonzos and Jones's . I also went to the Zep conventions in NJ in 1988 and the one in Cleveland in 1996. In closing I have a wealth of knowledge in this field and have access to lots of material in print and recordings and know every instrument that was used live and in recordings along with all the tabloid gossip stuff that most people relish but its all about the music.(and mudsharks and Lori Maddox)just kidding.
