The first Japanese show from 1972 mixes some great playing with some sloppiness. Robert's voice is still high and great but is showing signs of coming down. Dazed And Confused is a strange version ... Jimmy seems to be a measure ahead of the rest of the band and it sounds quite exciting! Jones and Bonham drive this show.

The first show of Led Zeppelin's second and final tour of Japan begins with a brief introduction by Goro Itoi. The premiere of the newly revamped setlist kicks off with the first appearance of Rock and Roll as the opening number. Plant is almost nonexistent during the initial verses, his voice breaking with every note he tries to hit. Page's fingers get a bit sticky during the guitar solo. During the intro of Over the Hills and Far Away, Page hits a bum note, throwing himself off a bit. Plant is having a lot of trouble with his voice, unable to hit the high notes like he used to.

Black Dog is followed by the first appearance of Misty Mountain Hop since 5/3/1971. Bonzo is in top form, throwing in inventive fills at every turn. The new arrangement of Since I've Been Loving You is highly dramatic. Page's soloing is flawless. Plant introduces Bron-Y-Aur Stomp by imitating a dog for the non-english-speaking crowd, saying "this song about a *woof woof*." He tells the crowd "Jimmy Page no use Greco, Jimmy Page use Gibson" as Page tunes his acoustic guitar. Before the first appearance of The Song Remains the Same, Plant explains "at the moment, we ain't got no title for it... we'll just call it Zep." An excellent performance with Bonzo wailing on his new tympani. The premiere of The Rain Song is absolutely beautiful and features Jones's newly-acquired Mellotron.

Page retunes his guitar during the intro of Dazed and Confused. Bonzo is out of control, thrashing at anything within reach as Page solos wildly during the guitar solo/workout section. Plant's introduction of Stairway to Heaven draws a loud cheer from the crowd. The guitar solo is drenched in echo. Whole Lotta Love is introduced as "one that really got us here... hope it'll get us back." The Everybody Needs Somebody to Love section is a cacophonous explosion. The medley begins with a mellow call and response between Plant and the crowd before Boogie Chillen', Elvis Presley's My Baby Left Me, the first appearance of Killing Floor since 9/6/1971, as well as an excellent new arrangement of I Can't Quit You Baby in it's first appearance since 12/2/1971. Page blazes through his solos during Heartbreaker. Plant's voice returns at full force during Immigrant Song, his Valhalla cries echoing through the hall. The show ends with a lightning-fast Communication Breakdown.


TOKYO — "We don't feel that our music can really be categorized or labeled because it encompasses a number of styles and types of music," said the members of Led Zeppelin.

The four-man British rock group opening a two week concert tour of Japan Monday held a press conference Saturday at the Hilton Hotel.

"Music falls into a certain category because people judge it the wrong way," explained the group.

"There's as great a variety in the music we play as there is in what we each like. As a group we have to draw influences from everywhere in the music field to get a well-rounded idea of what areas there are to explore and expand on," said Jimmy Page, guitarist and group leader.

Page formed Led Zeppelin in 1968. After a year of performances throughout England the group traveled to the U.S. and made their debut at the 1969 Newport Jazz Festival. The group received immediate recognition and a short time later began the climb to success.

"We've received platinum discs for each of the four albums we've recorded since 1968," stated Page.

Platinum discs are presented when am album has sold over two million copies.

Zeppelin is working on a mew album which will be released some time in November.

"When you start recording, you find that what it is you want your song to say takes time and a variety of styles to actually put it into music. I think that is the main reason we've only had album releases," explained Robert Plant, vocalist for the group.

Zeppelin has been together for nearly five years. Unlike most musical artists they have no desire or future plans to break away from their "group" success.

"We think alike and our tastes are all basically the same. We enjoy putting our music together and are generally pleased with the results. There is no reason for any one of us to quit the group and try it solo," Page explained.

While speaking out on controversial issues of the day seems to comprise a majority of the songs on the record charts today, Zeppelin is satisfied to express simply what they feel, "we're musicians not politicians," said Page.

Led Zeppelin will begin their two week tour of Japan Monday at 6:30 p.m. when they open for two days at Tokyo's Budokan Hall. Other scheduled performances include Oct. 4, 6 p.m., Osaka Festival Hall; Oct. 5, 6:30 p.m., Nagoya City Hall; Oct. 9, 6 p.m., Osaka Festival Hall, and Oct. 10, 6:30 p.m., Kyoto Kaikan Daiichi Hall.
