Led Zeppelin to release previously
unheard version of Stairway to Heaven

Daily Mail [UK], by Chris Pleasance

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/29/2014 6:30:48 PM

An unreleased version of one of the most celebrated songs in rock, Stairway To Heaven, is to come out later this year after sitting in the vaults for more than 40 years. An alternative take Stairway, one of Led Zeppelin’s most famous compositions, will be released on a new version of the band’s fourth album due out later this year. Guitarist Jimmy Page has sifted through vintage studio recordings to find different versions of each of the eight tracks from the Led Zeppelin IV album--which first came out in 1971--for a companion disc to accompany the reissue, part of a

Back in the olden days (springtime, 1975) some of my fellow classmates were working up plans for the Junior/Senior Prom. We immediately set to work on a theme. Numerous idea where tossed around, with most being rejected, until we whittled the list down to two:

1) Stairway to Heaven
2) Seasons in the Sun (remember that dreck?)

It came down to gender: the guys all wanted (1), while the ladies wanted (2). We guys lost, with threats of "There´s no way I´m going to any prom with you (fill in guy´s name here) if that is the theme!

Faced with the probability that it would be a guys-only prom, we caved. Yes, it still bothers me all this time. I really, really hated that song "Seasons in the Sun".

One of only a small handful of bands from that era that I still listen to. Have all of their albums as 1st releases on vinyl, can´t wait for this one. BTW, Jimmy Page is IMO one of the top 5 rock guitarists of all time.

#4 We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun. Other than a grand old time at the beach, didn´t have a clue as to why the song was written.

Led Zep´s Stairway to Heaven and the Moody Blues Knights in White Satin LPs were almost worn out from repeated playing. To hear the Moody´s in earlier recordings they certainly developed their sound in later years. Remember ´Go Now´?

"Seasons in the Sun" was taken, for the most part, from an insipid poem ("Le Moribond") by the insipid and unreadable "poet," Rod McKuen. Terry Jacks turned it into an insipid, melodramatic song, which was played a lot on the radio during 1973. As Snoopy sometimes said, "Blurgh."

As for Led Zeppelin, there are many of us old fans of the band who´d like to hear what the band recorded but never released. Jimmy Page, the band´s de facto producer, is doing a service (well remunerated, I´m sure) to fans by going through the vaults to find new material. You might remember the Beatles´ three 2-CD Anthology releases from the late-1990s. There was a veritable gold mine of unknown material (demos, outtakes, live performances) on the Anthologies; the same will be true with Zeppelin´s fazed cookies. Not for nothing were they the most popular band of the 1970s.

One other thing. Although no other band--with the possible exception of the Who--could rock harder, at least one-third of Led Zeppelin´s songs were soft and acoustic. Jimmy Page belongs with Hendrix and Clapton at the top of the guitar pantheon.

Although my favorite Zeppelin songs are "Trampled Under Foot" and "Kashmir", depending on my mood, STH still rocks and I´m really looking forward to the re-release.

Wasn´t "Seasons in the Sun" about someone who died? Why would anyone want that as a prom theme?

Article claims the opening riff came to Page in his sleep, when it actually came to him sitting backstage listening to Randy California play ´´Taurus.´´ One song that will have me diving for the radio´s channel button before the fourth note.

I have an admitted bias against Zep because that´s what everyone said was the epitome of music when I was younger. I will always maintain Deep Purple ran circles around them in talent and produced better, more original tunes. I´ve come to appreciate Zep for what they are and their musicianship, but they still don´t strike me as ´´all that.´´ Their first album was a masterpiece, and I really like Presence. The rest are hit and miss to me, and Bonham´s drumming got steadily more pedestrian as the years wore on.

#4, my class got stuck with ´´Come Sail Away´´ a few years later.

John Kerry seeks coalition
against Islamic State
BBC News [UK], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 9/10/2014 7:26:55 AM     Post Reply
US Secretary of State John Kerry has met the new Iraqi PM at the start of a Middle East tour to build support for action against Islamic State (IS). Haidar al-Abadi formed a unity government less than 48 hours ago. An inclusive government was a condition for greater US and Nato support in the fight against IS militants who have taken over large parts of the country. [Snip] He said on Tuesday that he had authority to widen military action against IS without the approval of Congress, but said he would still ask lawmakers to endorse the arming of Syrian opposition forces.

WASHINGTON--US President Barack Obama will tell the American people on Wednesday night that he plans to order strikes against Islamic State forces in both Syria and Iraq until the group is ultimately destroyed. The president´s plan includes additional support for opposition militias in Syria vetted by the United States, which will serve as a ground force complementing America´s air campaign. [Snip] The "comprehensive strategy," as described by one White House official, will involve "US military action and support for the forces combating ISIL [Islamic State] on the ground–both the opposition in Syria and a new, inclusive Iraqi government."

Israel on Wednesday hailed US efforts to form an alliance to fight jihadists in Syria and Iraq but raised concerns of a rapprochement between Washington and Israel´s arch-foe Iran. [Snip] His remarks came as US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Baghdad on an unannounced visit at the start of a Middle East tour aimed at building a regional coalition to combat the extremist Sunni militants who have taken over swathes of territory either side of the Syria-Iraq border. Liberman´s comments follow calls yesterday by Defense Minister Moshe Ya´alon for greater cooperation between global intelligence agencies to defeat IS.

Tonight, exactly one year after Barack Obama strode to a microphone in the East Room of the White House to make a prime-time televised address to the nation on "what to do about Syria", the US president is preparing once again to do…just that. Even by the tortured standards of Mr Obama, the 2013 address was a truly dismal affair in which the President could be heard arguing with himself over his own non-response to the Assad regime´s use of chemical weapons. [Snip] So a year on, where has that "diplomatic path" taken us? For a start, the killing in

New polling numbers paint a dismal picture of the Obama presidency as the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) gains influence in the Middle East and threatens to mount an attack on the U.S. homeland. Just 42 percent of Americans now see the president as a ´strong leader,´ according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released Tuesday--despite bullish talk from the White House that Obama will be able to carry out his strategy against ISIS without asking Congress.

Forget Scottish nationalism. This isn´t about historic national identity anymore (if it ever was): it´s about historic Labour ideology. [Snip] It will not require separate statehood to "protect" the Scottish health system from being denationalised by Whitehall, because Whitehall has no such power. The "Save Our NHS" slogan has nothing to do with Scottish independence. It is a trade union mantra.

[Snip] HRW, whose head Kenneth Roth directly condoned Hamas war crimes last month, accused Israeli authorities of having "denied them access to fair and efficient asylum procedures, and used the resulting insecure legal status as a pretext to unlawfully detain or threaten to detain them indefinitely, coercing thousands into leaving."

Syrian rebels strengthened their hold of the Syrian side of the Golan Heights on Tuesday morning, conquering the mountain Al-Mal in the Quneitra region where they have recently been capturing control from Syrian President Bashar Assad´s forces. In conquering the strategic point on Tuesday, rebel forces killed roughly ten Syrian soldiers according to Arab news sources cited by Walla!, with some reports assessing that all of Assad´s forces in the area were killed in the clash. The victory gives the rebels full control over the mountain located roughly ten kilometers (just over six miles) from the border with Israel.

The Obama administration will make a decision on executive action to prevent corporations from leaving the country in the "very near future," Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said Monday morning. Speaking at an event on business taxes at the Urban Institute in Washington, Lew placed the responsibility on Congress to address so-called tax inversions, but said that the administration was prepared to step in if lawmakers don´t move quickly enough. Inversions are tax maneuvers in which corporations buy firms in low-tax countries in order to place their headquarters in that country. Such deals have grown in number in recent months, with
