A really superb show from the 1975 Tour. The sound is great and the playing is excellent. Robert is in decent voice and the band is on a roll! No Quarter and Dazed And Confused are some of the best versions ever, and he opening numbers are really powerful. The earlier shows on the tour like the New York shows were long, but the marathons were generally played at 1973 length (No Quarter never exceeding twenty minutes, Dazed never exceeding thirty). In the west coast shows Zeppelin expands the numbers to where a thirty minute No Quarter and a forty-minute Dazed And Confused are routine. More highlights include something happening onstage after Bonham's drum solo, which causes Plant to start singing lines from Max Bygraves' "You're A Pink Toothbrush". This song is nothing more than Plant singing what appears to be a commercial jingle. It has only 10 seconds but it's funny!

Press Review: Squeeze all the air out of a three-hour Led Zeppelin concert at the Coliseum and you might have an hour of music and visual effects worth your attention.

Nevertheless, a sellout crowd that broke four plate-glass doors and brought a two-feet-deep stack of counterfeit tickets gust to get into the place, sat spellbound, despite the fact that ushers and police relieved them of the equivalent of a green garbage dumpster full of booze.
Led Zeppelin's appeal might be explained by the fact that they're known in the trade as a "street band," meaning that their following precedes critical attention by about two years.

Credit for such audience appeal belongs in large part to the band's singer, Robert Plant. Plant's ability to sing and play with, rather than to, a crowd is rare in this business.

Several years ago, when it was the custom to have chairs at rock concerts, people at the rear of the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, B.C., began chanting "Please sit down!" to those blocking their view. Plant picked up on the chant, the band improvised a song, and a perennial concert hassle was thus resolved.

Supporting Plant's howling vocal S were lead guitarist Jimmy Page, on Les Paul and double-necked 12-and-six-stringed guitars, John Paul Jones on bass guitar, mellotron, and piano, and John Bonham on drums.

The band introduced four songs from its new double album, titled "Physical Graffiti". These included "Sick Again," a rocker, "In My Time of Dying," a spooky tune called "Kashmir" and the album's new single "Trampled Underfoot"

A better chunk of the hour that makes LZ worth the price of admission was occupied by "Dazed and Confused," one of the band's earliest songs, and the rock classic "Stairway to Heaven."

In between these two was a medley rendition of "Woodstock" which featured Page playing his guitar with a violin bow and dynamic visual effects capped by three laser beams emanating from the stage and, terminating high above the opposite end of the Coliseum.

As the band went onto its encore, Plant remarked to the audience, "You were fantastic, so were we". (BY D. P. BOND, March 1975)

EV has finally released one of the SBs from thetwo Seattle ’75 shows that were rumored to fall into the label’s hands a long time ago. The quality of the SB is what we could expect from similar past '75 SB releases. It is generally excellent and well balanced, although Jonsey's bass sounds a bit too conspicuous in the SB for my taste. There is no immediately noticeable gap or drop in the tape. Unlike the audience recording of the show, “Rock And Roll” does not cut in but starts from the beginning. A minor complaint is that Discs 1 and 2 end abruptly rather than smoothly fading out. The SB reaffirms that the first '75 Seattle show was an excellent one from the '75 standard. There are a number of moments showing that the instrumental trio were inspired at the show. Robert's voice is also very strong. The subtitle came from the song a snippet of which Robert sang before the band started “Dazed And Confused.” The cover artwork for the title reproducing that for the old LP boot release of the Seattle '73.7.17 show is not very imaginative, but I found that the changing "V 1/2" to "VI 1/2" was witty. All in all, this is another surprising release by EV of a unveiled SB from one of the great shows in the band’s ‘75 tour. The 6CD set limited to 200 copies comes with bonus 3 CDs featuring a very good audience recording of the same show. However, I doubt that it is any better than what we already had. I now very much hope that the label would also release a SB from the more legendary second '75 Seattle show!
