A very overlooked show but one of the best from the end of the tour. A rather rowdy audience is called to calm down during Since I've Been Loving You. Robert's voice is surprisingly strong and he reaches up high at the end of Rock And Roll and shreds his vocal chords in a great version of Since. The band is playing very slick and Page completely reverses the sections of Dazed And Confused, and the end result is a very dynamic and gutsy version. The end blowout of Heartbreaker to the encore is pure Zeppelin nirvana and the crowd's approval is deafening. As a bonus, this show also happens to be the first show that Joe Massot and his film crew were on hand to film the band. It's not known exactly what the film crew may or may not have captured on this night. The footage from the movie that features Grant backstage cussing out the promoter over the sale of pirate posters at the gig is from this show. Oddly enough, in that very footage one can hear the band doing "Dazed And Confused" in the background.

Plant is in top form as Rock and Roll gets underway, reaching notes that would have been unthinkable two weeks earlier. Page pauses briefly during the intro to Over the Hills and Far Away to tune his guitar. Since I've Been Loving You is dramatic and powerful. The instrumental section during No Quarter is an epic journey. Plant sings "please sit down" during the first verse of The Rain Song. Unfortunately, there is a cut in the tape soon after which leaves us near the beginning of the heavy section. As the song ends, Plant tells the rowdy crowd "really, I think you gotta be a little bit quieter, because there are a few people who are tryin' to listen to the subtle musical changes."

Page is out of control during Dazed and Confused, soloing wildly and freely changing the song's structure on the fly. The frantic lead-in to the bow solo is immediately followed by the call and response with Plant, integrated with more furious soloing before finally coming back around to the haunting San Francisco interlude. The pace doesn't let up following the bow solo as Page shreds uncontrollably through the guitar solo/workout section, creating a completely new arrangement as he goes. An incredible, highly improvisational performance. Before Stairway to Heaven, Plant tells the crowd "this a song we've played to a lot of audiences... sorta sit down and you can feel throughout the building an amazing feeling which out forefathers a long, long, long time ago knew very well." Page blazes through the guitar solo. Plant pushes his voice to the limit, belting out the final verse in its original melody.

Someone near the taper can be heard shouting "go Jimmy!" as Page begins the fantastic a cappella solo during Heartbreaker. His fingers race across the fretboard in a furious cascade of notes during the explosive guitar solo section. Plant makes a brief reference to Gallows Pole in his boogie rap during Whole Lotta Love. The Boogie Chillen' section features an excellent guitar solo from Page. The band plays a tongue-in-cheek I Do Like to Be Beside the Seaside interlude before closing the show with The Ocean. As the band leaves the stage, Plant tells the crowd "we must love you and leave you, goodnight!"

Review excerpt:


More than 12,000 eager people turned out Monday night to see the British group at the Baltimore Civic Center, the latest stop on an American tour that has proved enormously successful. The band has been playing before packed houses of up to 60,000 and this concert was sold out for more than two weeks.

Monday night’s concert was almost vintage Led Zeppelin. The music ranged from good, tight, loud rock to boring, banal, loud noise and there was enough of each to keep everybody satisfied.

Three songs typified Led Zeppelin’s strongest points. Over the Hills and Far Away, The Song Remains the Same and Whole Lotta Love are steady, hard rockers that feature Robert Plant’s eerie knife-sharp voice, Page’s guitar and John Bonham’s throbbing, incessant drums at their best.
