Re: Great mistake Glyn...

Again, I think the sarcasm emoticon should've been employed!!  I believe there 
were some other comments made by Glyn, or possibly Kramer that I think was them 
trying to take credit for shit Jimmy did. Next thing you know that whole 
distance micing thing was their brainstorm too.  "I was the one who hung the 
mic in the stairwell man"

 Frig even on my most archaic Boss Dr Rythm DR-550 you can set the panning for 
every little clink it can produce!

  Ha Nech! 

     I call BS on that! Any engineer worth their weight in salt back then 
would've know about the advent of stereo microphone techniques in use in the 
1950's by EMI and the Mid Side technique invented by Blumlein.

   As technically savvy as Jimmy was he should've or would've known that too. 
But don't for one second think anyone in the Zep camp back then would take 
credit for something which they didn't come up with

  on their own. Geez, what do these "left, right , center" switches do? And 
what's that thing called "Pan" Cheers! PH ;-)
