This is going to be the Page/Plant '98 CDR tree. The Zeppelin '69 tree will be run by Ron Del Ciello and will have a separate sign up. Signing up for one CDR tree will NOT get you onto the other. You gotta sign up for both (which I wholeheartedly recommend, BTW). The closing date for signups is January 31st. Hopefully, this will give everyone who is currently on vacation plenty of time to get caught up on their email and signed up. The P/P '98 CDR tree consists of 2 shows. The first is a newly surfaced SBD of P/P's recent show at the Great Woods on 7-14-98. This show is sure to be a classic as it is the first SBD of the recent US tour to see the light of day. The second is the infamous Molsen secret gig show preformed on 10-30-98 provided by John Quigley. Thanks John! Sign up matters below. Please provide all requested information!

VG to EX Quality. Setlist: Wanton Song/Bring it on home/Heartbreaker/Ramble on/Walking into Clarksdale/No Quarter/WTWWY/Going to California/Tangerine/Gallows Pole/Heart in Your Hand/Bigly/Hmmts w/ Boom Boom Encores: Misty Mountain Hop/Trampled Underfoot/Night Flight/Rock n Roll This gig was the result of a private party sponsered by Molsen Beer. 200 Lucky prize winners were flown in and joined by 25 UK prize winners. About 500 people were on hand to see the show, and the venue was described as a High School Gymnasium!!!! No intro music used tonight. A few bars into Wanton Song, it becomes apparant that Page and Plant arent too concerned with this gig!! I mean that in a good way, loose and uninhibited. Plant constantly tries new vocal arrangements and Page is so erratic, he gets lost at times (witness the solo in Heartbreaker) All this makes for a refreshing experience, given the static nature of the 98 tour. The recording provides great atmosphere, the drums can be heard acoustically booming through the small room. In fact, the whole vibe reminds me of the recordings from their Poole show back in 95 - another small venue. Plant adds some 32-20 blues references at the end of Going to California, and gets so fixated on it, he repeats it ad nauseum for the remainder of the show! BIGLY is a mess. Plant disappears for a complete verse (God only knows where he went!!) and even starts cracking up while singing the good to have you back section!! Hmmts is its usual show stopping self, highlighted by a stomping rendition of John Lee Hookers Boom Boom But what makes this show special are the encores. Misty Mountain Hop gets its second Page/Plant airing, and although it is far superior to versions Robert did with his solo band, the band sounds a little cautious. Trampled Underfoot follows, and it sure is good to hear this one again.. And adequate version, but again it is a tentative effort. The real surprise comes next, in the first ever live version of Night Flight. I really like what they have done to the intro - big chords, some soloing, and then theyre off. Plant does an admirable job w/ a tough song (He will do much better at Wembley) Rock n Roll brings proceedings to a close. Although not a note perfect show by any means, it is great fun nonetheless, and worth the price of admission for the encores alone. If playing the small venues inspires them to experiment and play so relaxed, maybe a Return to the Clubs 99 tour should be considered!!
