An excellent show in term of the instrumental machine but Robert's vocals are terrible ... he caught the flu hitchhiking to the show when his car broke down so they dropped Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp out from the set. Perhaps the reason they didn't cancel the show was because the rest of the band was in great shape on that night. On this night Page’s solos are impressive all throughout. During Dazed And Confused he plays portions of the riff from The Hunter, and on more than one occasion the group get into prolonged jams on spontaneous unknown riffs, probably to further draw out the time before Plant had to sing again. The outro solo to Dazed contains a nice variation on the riff from In The Light. The guitarwork in Since I’ve Been Loving You and Stairway To Heaven again features fantastic Page soloing, and the collective playing in Over The Hills And Far Away, and The Song Remains The Same is very good. Robert's vocals stay very low and his range is not used at all so the band dominates the great medley

Rock and Roll, Over the Hills and Far Away, Black Dog, Misty Mountain Hop, Since I've Been Loving You, Dancing Days, The Song Remains the Same, The Rain Song, Dazed and Confused, Stairway to Heaven, Whole Lotta Love

Plant has lost his voice. He sounds like a dying animal during Rock and Roll, his voice squelching and squealing completely out of his control. Over the Hills and Far Away is sung in an injured monotone. The tape is cut near the end of The Rain Song, returning in time for Plant's introduction of Dazed and Confused. A brief portion of the lead-in to the bow solo is repeated after a fadeout in the tape. Plant's injured voice lends a mournful tone to his ethereal wails during the San Francisco interlude, which is cut slightly just before the bow solo. The guitar solo/workout section includes a brief reference to The Hunter before a heavy start-stop interlude. Page blazes through the frenzied guitar solo. He gets the band into an excellent jam on a wah-wah heavy riff during the outro.

There is a slight cut during the guitar solo in Stairway to Heaven. Another cut comes during a frenzied jam prior to the theramin freakout in Whole Lotta Love. The Everybody Needs Somebody to Love section features an extended guitar solo break. The medley includes Boogie Chillen', Elvis Presley's Let's Have a Party, Heartbreak Hotel, and I Can't Quit You Baby, a large chunk of which is repeated in the same was that the earlier portion of Dazed and Confused was. The recording ends during the extended blues improvisation.

The tape is muffled and hissy with a distinct high-pitch whine throughout. The sound becomes murkier as the show progresses, giving a feeling similar to that of being underwater.


What makes Led Zeppelin a bigger draw than the boy King Tut? It’s true that people queued all night for a last glimpse of the treasures from the Nile at the British Museum, but Zeppelin freaks seem prepared to do that for any concert by the rock group.

In Sheffield the City Hall show was a sell-out before the box office opened. On the current tour of one-nighters Zeppelin could have played a week at each city hall and there would still have been fans who failed to get tickets.

Why? It’s hard to say on the word of followers – ranging from teens to twenties – who were at the Sheffield concert last night. Comments varying between “they’re just great” and “the best rock band in the country” don’t shed much light on a phenomenon. But all were agreed that guitarist Jimmy Page was the best thing that ever happened to the group.

The ex-Yardbird (but don’t keep reminding him of that) is the jewel encrusted throne of this particular treasure. His playing is majestic and tireless, the guitar slung low at the hip. Sometimes it’s a double-neck at other times he revives old memories by dragging a bow across the strings to create sounds that are a mixture of a Wurlitzer being tortured and a huge monster in extreme pain.

Last night, Zeppelin had their own death mask – singer Robert Plant pale-faced with flu. And his car broke down on the motorway en route to the concert, he croaked. But maybe the flu was on their side because it cut out the screeching that often distinguishes a Plant vocal. Was it just sympathy that prompted a young girl fan to discard her bra in his direction however?

The lineup is completed by drummer John Bonham, whose influence is meaty and the more subtle contribution of bassist John Paul Jones, but without Jimmy Page…

They have been together since 1968 and they allowed themselves a little nostalgia. Driving hard through Whole Lotta Love and Heartbreaker, slowing down for the impressive Stairway to Heaven.

Presley had his place too, alongside new material from their album due out later this month. It will be revolutionary – a title is planned.
Some people unkindly say Zeppelin spend most of their time in the U.S.  That’s unfair, retorts their publicist B.P. Fallon who formerly nursed the fortunes of T. Rex. In 1972 they were only in America for three weeks.

But they are economical with their talents, appearing live spasmodically and never rushing albums out. Perhaps that’s the best way to create a demand and have hordes queuing for concert tickets. It certainly helps to make you a millionaire. That’s what they are.  – K. Strong, (Sheffield Star, Jan. 1973)
