1971.09.04 Led Zeppelin Maple Leaf Gardens Toronto (Decent Audience Recording)

Led Zeppelin
Maple Leaf Gardens Toronto
(Decent Audience Recording)

Here is the link
Good sounding audience recording. Most complete version of this show out as a boot title. Organ solo is missing before Thank You, Baby Face(Maple Leaf) is supposed to have to same cuts as this.

Concert description

A pretty good show, but the band seems to be tired after the last night. There are some great moments, like the opening two songs, a great version of Celebration Day with Jones' bass going nuts, and a great medley followed by an excellent Communication Breakdown. Thank You is played without an organ solo and is rushed. A good show with some great moments but not the best. Plant asking the audience to being quiet during acoustic set: "Listen. It realy amazes me, because anybody who's been to England knows that when you go to a concert, there's such a thing as listening to what's going on! Unfortunately, we're faced with the problem in our free society where a lot of people come to listen, and there's a lot of people who are making a racket so nobody hears what's going on. We've got some things to say but every time I go to open my mouth, there's another spokesman ... If the guy next to you is trying to listen, you've got to respect that and be quiet. So the whole thing's a bit circular respect thing. So many of those big festivals felt apart because the respect wasn't a uniform one, and the thing with these concerts is that they normally are!"

Man that was a concert to remember! Just amazing and with everyone lighting lighters for Stairway to Heaven and Jimi Page doing his violin bow over his guitar. The sweet smoke floating through the building. And I look at the price for a ticket that I paid back then. What a deal! LOL Times really have change. Bring it Back! Bring it Back!

Zeppelin More Solid Than Ever
The small sleek jet zooming Led Zeppelin into Toronto for a one-nighter was almost two hours late. When the jet finally touched down on Canadian soil, after a 55-minute flight from New York, there was less an hour to hustle through customs, climb into two chauffeured limousines and whisk through 15 miles of congested traffic before arriving at the backstage doors at the huge Maple Leaf Gardens.
The private jet waited on the tarmac in Toronto while the group swept superbly through more than two hours of concert and then rushed back to the airport to fly on to Chicago. Less than five hours on Canadian soil for a fee of more than $50,000.
The latest Led Zeppelin tour – their fifth – includes only 20 gigs, but it will gross in excess of a million dollars. It will also substantially help to sell at least two million copies of the band’s new album which will be released within four weeks and is NOT called “Led Zeppelin 4”.
Before over 17,000 fans at Toronto’s Maple Leaf Gardens, the group performed three of the cuts from their new LP and they were all well received. But it was the familiar material – the rock classics such as You Shook Me, Communication Breakdown, Dazed and Confused, and the masterpiece Whole Lotta Love – which drew the heftiest applause.
Despite the oft-heralded downfall of hard rock, Led Zeppelin is living, loving proof that although James Taylor is doing fine, he has quite a way to go before reaching the superstar success level of Zep or their U.S. counterparts, Grand Funk.
Led Zeppelin drew their reportedly largest rock crowd (over 20,000) in Vancouver’s history a week before; they sold out Madison Square Garden in New York and they smashed box office records across the continent, proving yet again that the current scene has no act to come within a country mile of their popularity.
We eventually arrived at the Gardens half an hour late, and Page was clearly concerned about the group’s lack of punctuality. People were pouring into the dressing room and talking louder and louder as Page tried to tune his axe to John Paul Jones’ bass. The noise had reached a distinct drone when Page suddenly turned around and told everyone to please leave.
The road managers hustled around and cleared the room of all but a couple of people, which didn’t include a photographer who came down to snap the group receiving numerous Canadian gold disc awards.
When Page and Jones completed their tuning, Bonham changed clothes and swigged from a bottle of beer, Plant downed a couple of lemon teas and squeezed into an embroidered vest which barely covered the upper half of his mid riff.
Then surrounded by Police and security men, they hastened out of the dressing room and climbed up on to the nine foot stage which was presumably designed to keep the faithful at bay.
After two encores and 140 minutes of music, the group climbed off stage, and jumped into the limousines and sped back to their jet. (Ritchie Yorke, Sept. 1971)
