1971.08.07 Led Zeppelin Montreux Casino (Good Audience)

Led Zeppelin
Montreux Casino
(Good Audience)

Here is the link

I believe this to have been recorded mostly from outside the venue.

Quote from Peter Grant:
"I remember when we did Montreux. It was so packed. I had the idea of feeding the sound outside onto the lawns where loads of fans who couldn't get in had congregated. Claude Knobs loved that."

Peter's PA allowed us to hear this show, even if the taper couldn't get inside. There are a few places you can hear the sound get MUCH better as a door opens and closes. It seems to me the taper was standing outside a door, in front of one of Peter Grant's PA speakers.

He moved quite a bit, so the sound quality varies. When the keyboard (melotron?) was on, there was a terrible hum produced - so bad that Stairway has a warble from all the harmonics bleedover.

Bonzo can be heard counting "three, four!" before the band launches into Immigrant Song. Plant mentions how nice it is to be back in Switzerland working with Claude Nobs before Since I've Been Loving You. Plant is in good form during Black Dog. The end of an eerie bow solo in Dazed and Confused is punctuated by Bonzo's crashing gong and Plant's ethereal wails. Page's improvisation gets the band a bit lost during the guitar workout. He shreds through the guitar solo, the return to the main riff is explosive.

There are tape issues throughout Stairway to Heaven, the worst during the guitar solo. Plant welcomes "everyone who's come from Milan" before That's the Way. Plant makes a comment about capitalist bootleggers before the first complete performance of Celebration Day. The band misses the cue for the first chorus, throwing Plant off track for a moment. Page botches the beginning of the slide solo in What is and What Should Never Be, briefly confusing Bonzo and Jones.

Whole Lotta Love is preceded by a heavy jam. Plant gets into a call and response screaming match with the audience during the theramin freakout. The medley includes That's All Right, Ramble On, B.B. King's Gambler's Blues, I'm a Man, Muddy Waters's Honey Bee, as well as an excellent lengthy blues improvisation. The band returns to the stage to close the show with the first rare rendition on Eddie Cochran's Weekend.
