I listened to ZEPs 1st album and was aware of the fanfare

    before it came out. It was a great album, Led Zep II was good. But after that they became a 1 or two song per album band with filler. And somehow die hard Zep fans and the wanna bees like a lot of the filler too. Not me. In fact the majority of the live stuff is a bore to me.

    HOWEVER, I think this might be their best live performance. No drugs, no fanfare, no undeserved worship. It does what we call, ROCKS!

    ENJOY!

    Hi.

    Yeah, I've always enjoyed this.

    I just discovered this the other day (maybe here?). All four as backing musicians for PJ Proby in 1969. Plant is on harmonica.

    I’m a die hard fan of Led Zep... I and II.
    Guys from my generation only saw Page with a Les Paul and believed that was the legendary tone, when it was a tele.

    I wore out the grooves on the II record and have respect for the talents of all four of them.

    When Page got the bow out it gets too boring for me.

    When LZ I came out, me and my buddies in high school went nuts and hanged out together listening to it over and over. I bought long speaker cables and placed the stereo speakers out into the backyard, so that we could blast it over the neighborhood. Great times. It was the beginning of a new era in rock. Not saying it was better or worse, but definitely different.

    Yep. I used to prop my speakers on the window sill, while I cut my dad's grass...……. :cool:

    Two of the guys were born just along the road from me, along with bands like Black Sabbath...…. we got to see a lot of those bands before they discovered Humbuckers. ;)

    I had no idea that the majority of Led Zeppelin's material was filler... With 8 studio albums and only 1 or 2 good tracks on 6 of them, that is a lot of filler!

    Zeppelin 3 and physical graffiti were great albums too. I've never really got into their live stuff. I like a few songs they did live in the early days but their live versions of the studio stuff was pretty sloppy. I also miss the additional guitars that are missing in the live versions of the studio songs.

    Look guys, I said I am not the fan you are, I was there, lived it and Yawned. They were very good, but so were 20 other bands.Their stardom was largely undeserved when you compare them to other bands, just as good, who never got the fanfare. Hey, I still can't figure out why Brittany Spears is so popular. Glad to be your cup of Coffee and get your blood flowing. Lets just say, so you understand, I have JEFF BECK SYNDROME. It is terrible. Some like to call it the perspective disease.

    Yes, those were days so special. Me and 3 or 4 four other friends planned an evening around laying on our backs, lights out, great stereo system and that days release, THICK AS A BRICK. What a trip. Imagine that now, young folks listening to an album with undivided attention. I'd guess it is close to never. If they listened its just blasting in the back round and it is nothing specific. We cherished, waited, New Zep ALbum, Traffic, Tull, Humble Pie, the list goes on. It was what was called pleasure.

    I remember doing the exact same thing... entire album, no distractions. Good times.
