    Houses of the Holy (1973) and Zep IV (1971)...I guess these are the exceptions though. What intrigues me though, is if Bonham's kit was mic'ed the same way every time (3-4 mics) how come those two albums sound a thousand times better than the first two?

    The difference in Zep drums from album to album, if the micing was indeed the same, might have to do with the rooms. Wasn't IV done in some rented mansion with the kit in the front hallway? I dunno, I been off of Zeppelin for some time, so I'm not the obsessive to ask about this.

    As for the mid 70's thing, isn't that when we lost an octave and some bass bump to 30 ips? I like my bass. Maybe if you like the Eageles, but then we're talking better off dead . . .
