Led Zeppelin – How The East Was Won ( Eeelgrass ) now in Stock

Led Zeppelin – How The East Was Won (Eelgrass EGL20272/273)

This blog is going with a decidedly ( exclusive even 🙂 Led Zeppelin flavour and for that we make no apologies . Eelgrass’s How The East Was Won is with us now .
We mentioned in our last blog  HERE that we had a few copies of Eeelgrass’s ‘West Was Won’ incoming and they shouldn’t be too far now . As good as the Empress Valley release is and it’s a barnstormer in every way ( possibly bar price ) we said that the only way to have as complete ‘source’ as possible was to go for this version .

A stunning performance and certainly one of the most important recordings to surface in quite some time…you need this what else is left to say !!!

The guys over at Collector’s Music Review as always do a sterling job see their review HERE :

Welcome to our 3rd Blog post we hope you are all well . We have had a slow and steady start sales wise and encouragingly plenty of visitors to our pages we would like to thank you all .

We take this opportunity to talk about some of the new releases from the last few weeks out of Japan and Europe we hope you enjoy reading this blog .

To pre order any of the Golden Eggs or Magic Bus Kiss box and a price email us at :

Led Zeppelin’s ‘How The East Was Won’ on Empress Valley and Eelgrass

So it’s been around 2 weeks now and the the most anticipated release by Empress Valley from their soundboard revolution series this year, ‘How The East Was Won’ landed in the market .
It’s a soundboard recording from the bands gig at the Osaka festival hall on the 29th of September, 1971.

EV had already promoted this release with 2 sample ‘singles’and they kept us all hanging in for a long time , actually felt like forever .
For some inexplicable reason EV did not include these single releases no doubt wanting to extract every £/$ they could from these .

Kind of nuts in our opinion to split out the show ( albeit incomplete ) over 4 Discs . If you want the full concert, ‘The Immigrant Song’ and ‘Friends / Stairway To Heaven’ singles, if they’re not already sold out, are the way to go. OR you can go for the Eelgrass release ( see below )

How The East Was Won - Empress Valley - CD

We haven’t plunged for the EV set yet as it is proving expensive even at wholesale and is fairly hard to track down BUT fear not we have a handful of the Eeelgrass release coming in soon it’s more affordable anyway and you get the same quality soundwise 🙂


Four new titles coming from Golden Eggs! preorders being taken for 50% deposit .

Pink Floyd – Moon Over Ocean (EGG 55/56) is a 2CD set from Sportatorium, Hollywood, FL on April 15, 1972 which the label is calling a “Definitive upgraded version, excellent audience”.

Pink-Floyd-Moon-Over-Ocean - Golden Eggs - CD

David Bowie – Standing On My Own (EGG 57) is a single disc with an assortment of tracks recorded between 1966 and 1971.

Some notes for this release: “When the, quickly sold out, LP of Standing On My Own was released there seemed to be a great demand for a cd version as well. The early career of David Bowie and his way to stardom has always been of interest to collectors and fans. So to satisfy the need the Eggs present Standing On My Own on CD with 5 extra bonus tracks compared to the lp version. From some early demos in the sixties up to 1971 when he visited the USA for the first time which became the start of his worldwide fame”.

Led Zeppelin – A Sweeter Blueberry (EGG 58/59) is a 2CD set featuring the famous “Blueberry Hill” concert from the Great Western Forum, Inglewood, Los Angeles, CA on September 4th, 1970 which promises “The definitive Blueberry show stereo version”. This comes with an 8 page booklet.

The Rolling Stones – Show Me Your Workings: Outtakes And Unreleased Tracks 1977/1983 (EGG 60/61) is a “Newly discovered and upgraded outtakes collection” on 2CDs. Notes included with the announcement state: “From the Outsider Bird vaults, we bring you this leak of tracks from the Stones ‘middle years’ period. At lot of this work is new even to the most diehard of collectors and is presented here lightly remastered for your listening pleasure”.

Kiss – You Are The Best – Because I Say So! (The Godfather Box G.R. BOX 26)

With a theme that is a homage to The Dutch KISS Army, an organization of hard core KISS fans who organized the first fan club for the band outside of the United States back in 1976. This is an absolute stunner of a box from Godfather .

The 24 page booklet that gives an excellent historical overview of TDKA. , and certainly confirms their passion for this band and their music.

There are six discs presneted in three gatefold sleeves all adorned with period correct photographs. The booklet also features lots of old newspaper clippings, handbills and the like.

We get five concerts that we at Live Rock And Metal  have never heard before and a bonus in the form of extras on Disc D . This set is one of our favourites with top notch performances
with the mastering of the tapes being excellent even though the sources are good at best .
