1971.04.01 Led Zeppelin Paris Theatre London (Soundboard)

 Led Zeppelin
Paris Theatre London

Here is the link
Zep's final BBC performance was originally scheduled for 25th March but was postponed for a week to allow Robert's voice to recover after a busy month of touring. Disc 2 of "BBC Sessions" features most of this concert but some parts were left out.
This is a very different (rougher) and without overdubs mix than what appeared on the BBC sessions

"Immigrant Song", "Heartbreaker", "Since I've Been Loving You", "Black Dog", "Dazed and Confused", "Stairway To Heaven", "Going To California" and "That's The Way" are all included in full. "What Is and What Should Never Be" was played next but is not included in the official release

The "Whole Lotta Love" medley was shortened by about seven minutes on the official release by means of three cuts:

At 6:00, 90 seconds worth of guitar solo and "Trucking Little Mama" have been removed
At 9:15 another 90 seconds bites the dust - this time it's "For What It's Worth"
At 11:29 we lose the four minute "Honey Bee"
"Thank You" is included in full but the second encore, "Communication Breakdown", was also omitted.

So here it is without cuts, overdubs and in the proper running order

"This is something we've waited for a long time on the Sunday repeated to Wednesday concert, and I know it's going to be well worth the wait. Would you welcome please Led Zeppelin!" John Peel announced the band. This is the famous BBC concert show that was released in 1997 legally. But here we have it 100% complete and unedited, and it is indeed a great, although not completely spectacular, show. Robert's voice is amazing, really showing no signs of the flu when he lost it the week before. Bonham is thunderous, Jones plays some of the best and heaviest-sounding bass I have ever heard and Jimmy is on top form. But there's a nervousness that adds a little tension to the show, most likely due to the studio atmosphere. The version of Black Dog is great and gutsy, and the one-two opening punch of Immigrant Song into Heartbreaker is very powerful. One of the best versions of Since I've Been Loving You I have ever heard, with Robert's vocals being the absolute stunner. The versions of Dazed And Confused and Whole Lotta Love are also spectacular. Just before the Whole Lotta Love, John Peel back for the introduction: "I'm going to sing on the next one" he jokes with Robert, who also made refference to Ray Steven's hit Bridget The Midget.
