Anyway, on this album we, we've tried to, to do a cross section of everything that we've run into. And, uh, we've included some blues because that's where it all comes from. Now, one of the tracks is a thing from Otis Rush, while Jimmy changes a string, or, uh, replaces a string. This is a thing on our album which we got it off Chicago Blues Today, something like that. It's called, it's called, hang about, hang on a minute. I .... It sounds really strange. It's like His Masters Voice with the record players with the big trumpets. Right.

Thank you. Thank you. You are too much, really. Thank you. Well, we'd like to say. I'd like to say just a couple of things, look we, we've been playing in America a lot recently and, and we really feel that coming back here we might have a bit of a dodgy time, but we, we finally get a bit .... There's a lot of things going wrong in America at the moment that are getting a bit sticky and whatnot. And it's really nice to come to an open air festival where there's no really bad things happening. And everything's carried on decently. On the news last night, on the, on the television news, a geezer who works the petrol pumps in Shepton Mallet, said something like Shepton Mallet would never be the same. I think it's just added to everything that's here already, so. We like to, uh, we'd like to do something that we, that we probably owe to people who came a long time before us. I think every other group on the scene does that a little bit every now and then. As I can't light me cigarette.

Living in Tulsa, which is a good 24 hours away from us, um, we'd like to, or Jimmy'd like to play a number from the Welsh mountains, or about a place in the Welsh mountains. A little cottage way up there in those films that you see. Alright? Now this cottage's got a Welsh name that means the Golden Breast. And it's really, to see it you'd know what we were talking about. It's on the side of some beautiful hills, and there's all this spiel coming down the hills and all that sort of thing. It's a beautif, it's a beautiful place, really a beautiful place. There's no two ways about it. And the Welsh pronunciation of the Golden Breast is not, it's, … it's called 'Bron-Yr-Aur.' You'll be hearing a lot more of it. You see, what you have to do to get the, it's a different tuning for this number and you have to sufficiently, um, take 'em back to those mountains before you can get the tuning right. Because this is Tulsa, you got a problem there. …. Seems to be that the drummers, ok? Hee hee hee. Alright, in all seriousness, Jimmy Page, 'Bron-Yr-Aur,' Jimmy Page.

This is something that we did the first night we ever came to San Francisco. And we were all filling out our trousers and, uh, getting a bit worried about Bill Graham. Anyway, it all worked out and so this is one from then.

Anyway, this next thing is an acoustic one as well featuring Jimmy on guitar. It's a thing called 'Bron-Yr-Aur.' Bron-Yr-Aur is the, uh, a Welsh name for, it's an expression meaning 'Golden Breast.' And, uh, it refers to a cottage in the Welsh mountains. It is so positioned that every morning, when the sun rises, the sun falls on it and gives it the Welsh appearance, at least, of Golden Breast. On spending a few weeks there, or a few days there, we were without coyotes, uh. It's an experience that we have to put down musically. Everyone, the same in England. Evidently it's like …. This is for the wild bunch. It's called 'Bron-Yr-Aur'. Jimmy Page.


02-Sep-1970 Oakland Coliseum  

Let's hear it for Jimmy Page! We, it seemed to me that, uh, last night I might have saw a record player, right? I saw a record on it, behind if you weren't listening.

Once, about a year ago, we went to see Elvis Presley. Right, and, uh, we saw all these American women that were really gettin' it on before he even came on stage and there were so many hoots. You wouldn't believe how many wigs there were on the stage before he even started. It was amazing. I'll think of something else as we go along. In the mean time, on organ, John Paul Jones on organ. Ladies and gentlemen.

So could you be quiet, alright? Nothing, listen man... Alright, has anybody sat down? Right, now shut up there. Anyway, heavy heavy vibes. There's no acoustic number, sorry. How can he, he hasn't been able to tune up. Listen, you tried everything, we tried everything. He can't tune the guitar up when it's only an acoustic guitar. You've all got acoustic guitars at home, and you know what it's like trying to play it with the television on. Anyway, this is another thing from Led Zeppelin Three. um This is called 'Since I've Been Loving You', featuring John Paul Jones on organ.

Good evening. Thank you. We need your assistance. There's about eighteen thousand of you. That's not two hundred and fifty thousand, but it's, it's eighteen thousand. And eighteen thousand pairs of hands should sound pretty good, right? Right. I can only hear fifteen thousand. Seven hundred and ninty nine. Do it!


04-Sep-1970 The Forum  

Thank you. Good evening. For those people shouting obscenities, it's all gonna come, right? That's for the man over there, 'cuz you'll have no voice left. We got um, oh. What? He's had a haircut and grown a beard, love, how's that? Transvestite. Uh, point is, we got an album coming out in two weeks time, at last. Thank you. And, uh, on this album there's a few acoustic things. And we'd like to, uh, try and do one for you tonight. So if you can, if you can tell the mouse who's sittin' on the floor to stop squeaking and we can get everything very quiet, we'll manage to do it. This features the illustrious John Paul Jones on electric mandolin. Yes. Straight from New Delhi. Good evening. We usually expect about three minutes feedback before we, uh. This is a, yeah, okay.

Yeah! It gives us, hang about, uh, what was I gonna say? Gives us great pleasure to hear that. 'Cuz, uh. Thank you. Hang on, then. We'd a, we've had a bit of abuse in the midwest. Every time you sit on a chair and pick up a mandolin it's eww. This next thing's an instrumental featuring Jimmy on guitar. Uh, this is a thing called 'Bron-Yr-Aur.' Now, Bron-Yr-Aur is a name of a little cottage in the, the mountains of Snowdonia in Wales. And Bron-Yr-Aur is a Welsh equivalent of, uh, of the phrase 'Golden Breast.' This is so because of its position every morning when the sun rises and it's really a remarkable place. So, after staying there for a while, and deciding that it was time to leave for various reasons, we couldn't really just leave it and forget about it. You've probably all been to a place like that. Only we can tell you about it and you can't tell us. Help me. Well, this is in true country side. A lot of it's still, well a lot of it in England is, is even being planted in there now, so's you have so many trees per field and, uh, people aren't supposed to know about it. I think as you realize the difficulty of, uh, of having to retune to another tuning when there's 18,000 people breathing hot breath. And the strings seem to go all over the place, and so do I. Hah, hah. Everything's cool. You're alright, aren't ya? Jimmy Page.


04-Sep-1970 The Forum  

Let's hear it for Jimmy Page. A nice one. We're getting a little looser now, right? See John Bonham, there he is. Look at that, craftsman with a hammer. Far out, man. What I'm trying to say is, never help him. We'd like to do, uh, another thing from the new album. This is featuring John Paul in his role as an organist. This is called 'Since I've Been Loving You.' Everybody's quite nice tonight. Aren't they? It's much better atmosphere this evening than last time, believe me. Heavy vibraphones.

And, uh, it's really, we had a bit of trouble, you see, because we were gonna come to Boston and, at the beginning of the tour, which was about four weeks ago, and all of a sudden some old man decided that no drug crazed hippies were gonna lie on his lawns. So we, so, uh, quote, quote. Remember that quote. Uh, I didn't say nothing and, uh, so we couldn't come. We really like to come, and, uh, anyway, we've been through Hawaii. We were in Hawaii, which is over there, or over there, uh, and that, and that was about 2 days ago. So we managed to rush back and, uh, the equipment arrived about an hour before we started, so we made it. We got here. We got to tell you that JJ Jackson keeps us well informed. We keep on giving him on them clothes. He keeps us well informed of what to do. And so, uh, we come to the next thing which is an instrumental featuring Jimmy on guitar. Here we go. This is a thing, this is a thing called 'Bron-Yr-Aur.' Bron-Yr-Aur is a, as I said early on in the tour, is the Welsh name for, uh, 'Golden Breast.' Bron-Yr-Aur is the name of the cottage that we, uh, we visited in the Welsh mountains of Snowdonia, which, uh, helped towards some of the things on the album. And, uh, so, every night we like to pay tribute to it. And let everybody in America get an idea, through music. And that's what it's all about. … Really, he's only tuning up. I'm giving you all of this old crap, you see? Right, ladies and gentlemen, Jimmy Page.


09-Sep-1970 Boston Garden  

Jimmy Page! Let's hear it for Jimmy Page. Well, there's a feeling here of way too much formality, which, uh, makes me think that people aren't very loose. But if you don't get loose, we haven't got a chance in our, in our lifetime, so. So we really want you to try. If you can avoid seeing these policemen walking up and down, then all very good. Can you keep to the sides, gents? Can you move back a bit, gents? I'm not, I am not trying to stir up trouble, it's just that every time I start getting into something, every time that we start playing something, we're just seeing little hats walk by. So this is, uh, together with that, this is a sort of a blues thing from, uh, the next album, which will be applied for everybody. It's called 'Since I've Been Loving You.'


09-Sep-1970 Boston Garden  

Thank you. I can't get into it, man. I mean, I mean where's the parrot store, mate? Right, you've seen John Paul Jones on the mandolin. Now we'd like you to see John Paul Jones's organ. Ladies and gentlemen, John Paul Jones. Any try to get loose despite the uh, the herdsmen there, alright? All you drug crazed hippies.


09-Sep-1970 Boston Garden  

Alright, you're getting a little bit better. Doesn't it feel a little bit better? Let's hear it for John Paul Jones, on organ.


09-Sep-1970 Boston Garden  

Alright? Easy, Shh. There's no need for a lot of noise, there's no need for a lot of noise, really, 'cuz it all goes from there to there. On drums, John Bonham, 'Moby Dick,' John Bonham.


09-Sep-1970 Boston Garden  

Let's hear it for John Bonham. Ladies and gentlemen, John Bonham. Well we're gonna ask, we're gonna ask just one thing, that listen, listen, shut up a minute, listen, listen to me for god's sake. What are you doing? Listen, there's a lot of policeman who've moved out of the way and been really cool, so the least you could do, if it's all about getting on with you brother, and everything, then just, if you don't climb on the stage then they're not going to get uptight, alright? So we, what we really want to do is remember Boston as the best night of the tour, right? And you're, and even the people up there. They're all as important as each other. So be, so try and be cool, and we won't have any aggravations, right?


09-Sep-1970 Boston Garden  

Thank you very much, and good night. Thank you Boston. < cut audience> You are, I think what the Americans call, far out. Well, we'd like to do um, something that you might remember well, and when there's, when there's nothing happening between two people, you got a problem, and we'd like to sing about the problem.


09-Sep-1970 Boston Garden  

Thank you very much, and good night. Good night. Thank you.


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Good afternoon. Good afternoon.


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Thank you. Thank you. Good afternoon. It's a little cold today, should have brought me .... Exactly. Right. This is one from way way back.


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Thank you. Right, we need, we need a little help from you. Okay? I mean everybody! Now let's hear you!


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

The time is now 2:53. Well we'd like to, um, we'd like to, uh, do an acoustic thing for a few minutes. Would you bear with us? This is something from, um, the album that's coming out, uh, when? Uh, let's see, well it's before Christmas and it's after Easter, and, um, it should be out here in two or three weeks. Anyway, this is a thing.


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

The next thing we'd like to feature is uh, an instrumental featuring Jimmy on guitar. Now this is a little thing, um, called 'Bron-Yr-Aur.' Bron-Yr-Aur is the, is a Welsh name for 'Golden Breast.' Translation to Golden Breast. In the mountains of Wales and Snowdonia there's a little cottage; it's off the road in the hills, miles from anywhere, that has a name 'Golden Breast.' Well we were there about three or four months ago. This is an incredible place and we decided every night we played, we were gonna remember it. So, we're gonna do a little bit of tuning. Good afternoon. Trying to think, I been trying to think whether the last time we played here was Carnegie Hall or Central Park. Does anybody remember? Was it Central Park? Carnegie Hall. Wasn't it a great night at Carnegie Hall, yeah? We had the most strange encounter in the dressing room with a young lady. Films a plenty, eh? Anyway, Jimmy Page, 'Bron-Yr-Aur.'


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Let's hear it, Jimmy Page! 'Bron-Yr-Aur.' This time we wanna do something from the, the next album again. Featuring John Paul Jones on organ. And it's a thing called 'Since I've Been Loving You.'


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

John Paul Jones on organ. John Paul Jones on organ.


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Thank you. John Paul Jones, organ. I think it's really hard. They've asked me to say something about, about something. It's quite a delicate point but yesterday something happened that wasn't, wasn't really the best timed thing ever. But Jimi Hendrix died and we're all very sorry because he contributed a lot to the current music thing. And we'd like to just hope that everybody thinks it's, it's a real shame, Jimi Hendrix.


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Thank you. On drums, yeah, eventually, right, within the next four or five weeks for sure. On drums, John Bonham. 'Moby Dick.'


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Lets hear it, John Bonham! John Bonham! John Henry Bonham. We'd like to, we're gonna round things up. And we'd like to finish with a thing. Oh, we'd like to thank you all very much for sticking with us while we made things happen, alright? And we'd like to, uh, we'd like to tell you. We'd like to apologize for these gentlemen. There's very little we can say. I think, I think really if, if you'd stop getting too crowded here and, and move back, these people don't want to do anything uncool. They want to just enjoy themselves, really. I think this is, although I'm not quite sure whether he heard or if he's got cotton wool in his ear. But the point is, there's just one bridge that everybody's got to cross. They've got to cross it, and we've got to cross it, and if they're coming together for everybody. So if you gentlemen could move back, there's gonna be no bad things at all, right? Believe me.


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Thank you very much. Thank you, goodbye. <cut audience> We'd like to, uh. You're too much, really. A bit frightening.


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Thank you. Thank you New York.


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Good evening. Good evening.


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Thank you. Thank you very much. Uh, it's really, we didn't expect you to shout that loud, really. Thanks very much. We'd like to do something from, the first time we ever managed to get to The Fillmore East. And this is the second number we did that night. So we'd like to do it again.


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Thank you. Right. Now we want you to help us, okay? Got your hands ready? I can't hear you.


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Alright?! Right. Before we get any farther it might seem. If you could all be quiet for a minute. Can you be quiet for a tick? Alright? It seems a rather inept time to, to start talking about things that, uh, I'm sure that the people we talk about, wouldn't want said. But yesterday a rather uncomfortable thing happened for everybody, and a great loss came about for the whole of the music world. Well we'd like to think of you as well as us are very sorry that, that, uh, Jimi Hendrix is dead. No, it's right. I spoke to a close friend of his about half an hour ago; he said that probably he would have preferred everybody to just get on and really have a good time, rather than talk about it. So, we'd like to get on and try and make everybody happy. In so doing, we'd like to do a track from the new, the new album that comes out. It comes out anyway. In fact, it might come out within the next two weeks, we don't know. We don't know, ya know, we finished it about six weeks ago so, uh, who can tell? This is a thing called 'That's the Way.'


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

John Paul Jones on mandolin. Now that was called 'That's the Way.' And, um, we'd like to feature Jimmy on guitar now on a solo. This is a thing, this is a piece entitled 'Bron-Yr-Aur.' Now Bron-Yr-Aur, to at least two of our audience, should ring a bell. It's the name of a small cottage in the south hills of Snowdonia and Wales, the Welsh Mountains. And the name is a Welsh name which, translated into English American means, 'Golden Breast.' Which leaves a lot to the imagination. Now, this cottage is placed on the side of a hill. And every morning when the sun comes up, from a distance the slate stone looks like gold. And the fact that it'd been derelict for about forty years and then we lived in, we would, we decided everytime we would have played we would play this piece of music just to remember one or two of the places that are good. Far out man. Jimmy Page, 'Bron-Yr-Aur.'


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Jimmy Page, Jimmy Page. Right, this is another thing from the third album. This is a, a rather slow blues type thing featuring John Paul Jones on organ, This is called 'Since I've Been Loving You'. Get loose.


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

For your entertainment, for your entertainment, for your enjoyment, we give you John Paul Jones. John Paul Jones's organ ladies and gentlemen.


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Let's hear it for John Paul Jones, organ, John Paul Jones.


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Do ya feel alright?! On drums, ladies and gentlemen, the man who made Milwaukee famous, John Bonham, 'Moby Dick.'


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Let's hear it, let's hear it. John Bonham, John Bonham. Let's hear it. John Bonham, far out. Right, What we wanna do is, uh, try to choose a good number to go out with.


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Good night New York. <cut audience> Too much, thank you, too much, thank you. Do you feel alright?! (You feel pretty good children?) Good night. We'd like to, uh, I'd better change my, uh, approach. This is a thing from the third album. This was written by John Bonham and is called 'Out On the Tiles.' John Bonham on drums!


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Thank you very much. <cut audience> Alright? Good evening. We'll have to watch the missiles.


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

Right, this is one that we should have done, but we thought we were gonna do a lot of other things. So, so stick around.


19-Sep-1970 Madison Square Garden  

God bless. Thank you. Thank you very much and good night.


05-Mar-1971   Ulster Hall

Thank you. With reference to a bit of toilet paper, hang about, I'd like to announce the next number. ah This is, we got to tell you ah that it's very encouraging to hear everybody shouting, but we came and we thought when we came here we were gonna play something, so we wrote down what we were gonna play.

05-Mar-1971   Ulster Hall  

Thank you very much. I think it's getting a little warmer here isn't it? Now you see, if everybody was like this every single day, there'd be no hang ups, right? No problems. However, we like to do another one. This is ah, this is another one from the fourth album.


05-Mar-1971   Ulster Hall  

Thank you very much. Good night Belfast. You really ought to shut up a bit cause it's really terrible trying to shout. Anyway, somebody had to lean on the PA, and it all fell on the floor. I have a strong suspicion that it came from this side of the stage


06-Mar-1971 The National Stadium  

One, two. How are ya? I think, I think we should go, I think we should try and get all these lights down. Let's turn the light down. I'd like it, the side ones too, while you're there. And how about that one by the door? It's alright, ....

But the last night was in, uh, in the same part of the world and it was really a gas so I hope we're gonna have a good time this evening. This is, uh, this is a thing from the first album. We'll have a good tune-up. I just told a lie. We're gonna do something off, off, off the fourth album. Uh. We all have troubles, we really do. There's a piece of toilet paper with, uh, with the, uh, the list of what we were doing on, and the piece of toilet paper's been used apparently. It's sad, you have to live there. We don't.


06-Mar-1971 The National Stadium  

Thank you. We've had a bit of trouble with the program, as we really don't know what we're doing. I know. We're gonna do another thing from the fourth album, uh, this is a bit of an epic, in a sense, so when, when you've come, when you get to listen to it, we hope you'll see. This is, uh, ah, we ain't gonna forget that too. Hold on. I'm on my toes. This is called 'Stairway to Heaven.' Hold on, stop breakin' it, hang on baby.

01-Apr-1971 Paris Theatre

I think there's time for just a quick swill of tea. Hang on. .... I can't really tell you, 52 million of you. It sounds like Bridget the Midget, doesn't it? That's why I said 55 million or 52 million or whatever. 'Cuz there's a lot of, you know, effort required. Anyway, with the help of John and everybody else we're gonna get by or something. Alright. .... He's got his medallion's and his, his leather suit, I believe, is on him. [John Peel]-- I was really knocked out that so many people came to see me tonight ….Rory Gallagher said that they shouldn't wear spacemen's suit. There's an effort not even worth speaking about.

We Can't play if there's going to be this going on through every number. Somebody better tell him in Danish what the score is.

22-Aug-1971   The Forum  

Good evening. It's very difficult to try and see who's out there reall because these spotlights aren't helping very much. If it was a little less intent, it'd be a lot nicer. We've got a new album coming out in about three weeks time, after a lot of messing around, and this is one of the tracks from it. It starts off rather quietly, so we'd like it quiet. Shh

Wrap it on. Alright, 'Black Dog.' Right, I was tryin' miss it out actually, 'cuz I was falling apart.


23-Aug-1971 Convention Center Arena  

Far out. Celebration. John Paul Jones has now become the ah carrier of so many instruments it takes about five minutes to whiz round from one to the next, to the next, to the next, to the next, to the next, and I've got a harmonica somewhere too. This is getting worse. By the end of the gig, I won't be able to say a word.


23-Aug-1971 Convention Center Arena  

Gonna sit down with all these lights and things. My poor brow is already sweating enough from my inefficiency tonight. Can you turn some of those big white lights off Mr. man with the lights? It's like a sauna bath. There you go, how's that? A bit of, a bit of taste.


23-Aug-1971 Convention Center Arena  

This is one for the, uh, the donkey. Can I have a cup of tea, ...? What's ...?

31-Aug-1971 Orlando Sports Stadium  

If we can ah, if we can keep the sound down, hang on, hang on, and stop whistling for fuck's sake, and shut up. We're gonna change the tuning on the acoustic guitars, and the more birds there are, the less chance we have of doing it. This is ah, yet another song from the new album. ah This is called 'Going to California', which is another part of the United States.


31-Aug-1971 Orlando Sports Stadium

03-Sep-1971   Madison Square Garden  

Good evening. This is ah, this is something quite a bit slower. This is called Since I've Been Loving You. Listen, the one thing we don't want tonight is a lot of rappin when we're trying to play. So if everybody, if you respect the people behind you then we're gonna stop a lot of shouting. So try to move into the aisles, and sit down a bit, otherwise it's gonna be us that are going to suffer.


03-Sep-1971   Madison Square Garden  

We got ah, we got an album coming out in three weeks. This is a , we got to apologize about the delay, this ah, we got problems trying to get a record cover that looks how we want it. This is a track called Black Dog.

03-Sep-1971   Madison Square Garden  

Good evening. You've got to be a little bit more expressive now. Good evening. It's been ah, it's been twelve months since we were here. I'm not that hungry. It's ah, it's good to be back. We didn't even ah, imagine it was gonna be like this. It's good to be back. This is a track from the next album. It's called Stairway to Heaven. You got to be pretty quiet for this so Shh. If you're gonna talk, whisper.


03-Sep-1971   Madison Square Garden  

Right, we'd like to, we'd like to do one, we gotta tribute this to New York. It's off the last album. I don't know whether you've got it. This is called Celebration Day.


03-Sep-1971   Madison Square Garden  

I remember last time we were here, we sat down, we didn't have very much success doing what we we're doing cause there was so much noise. So you cool it, and we're gonna sit down. Is everybody warm enough? What ever happened to last twelve months? What have you been doing?


03-Sep-1971   Madison Square Garden  

Alright, this is ah, another track off the next album. We haven't really decided yet on a name for it. No, not Led Zeppelin Four. Led Zeppelin are alive and well in Scottsburough. This is called Going to California. Shh.

Good evening. On drums, John Bonham. Moby Dick.


03-Sep-1971   Madison Square Garden  

John Bonham. Let's hear it for Moby Dick. I might need you help, right? You got to help us. Everybody. A little louder. Louder children. I can't hear you.

03-Sep-1971   Madison Square Garden  

Thank you. Good night. Good night New York.


04-Sep-1971   Maple Leaf Gardens  

was ah Stairway to Heaven. This is a track that we seem to have dedicated to New York city, but ah, if you remembered it from the last album, it's not such a cool one after all. Celebration Day.


04-Sep-1971   Maple Leaf Gardens  

Listen, it really amazes me because anybody who's been to England knows that ehen you go to a concert, you, there's such a thing a listening to what's going on. And unfortunately, unfortunately, we're faced with a problem in our, in our free society, where a lot of people come to listen, and there's a lot of people who a re making a racket, so nobody hears what's going on. Now we've got some things to say, and every time I go to open my mouth, there's another spokesman. So we'd like to do two acoustic things now, if you could bear with us, alright? You can either stay in a complete rut, or after three years, you can start moving and flowing a bit more. So I think you'll pick that.


04-Sep-1971   Maple Leaf Gardens  

I think that what it really is down to is that is, sort of a, we're not exactly sitting next to each other cause we're not sitting down there. If that guy next to you is trying to listen, then you've got to respect that, and be quiet. So the whole thing is a big circular respect thing at a concert. So many of those big concerets, thos big um, festivals fell apart because the respect wasn't a uniform one. And the thing with these concerts is that they normally are. Anyway, that was cool. We want to do another one off the, off the fourth album, and this is a, when we're tuned up, I'll tell you a bit more about it. This is called Going To California, which is somewhere down south.


04-Sep-1971   Maple Leaf Gardens  

John Paul Jones played electrimandolin. Oh it's nice. That's better.


04-Sep-1971   Maple Leaf Gardens  

Good evening. This time, on drums, our precussionist John Henry Bonham. Moby Dick.


04-Sep-1971   Maple Leaf Gardens  

Thank you very much. Good night. Good night.


07-Sep-1971   Boston Garden  

Good evening. So we finally made it home. This is ah, this is a little bit of a cooler thing. This is called Since I've Been Loving You. Far out.


07-Sep-1971   Boston Garden  

Thank you. Where have you been for a year? This is ah, we're gonna finally, after a lot of pissing about, we got an LP coming out in about four weeks time. I suppose we could apologize for the delay, but ah, there's a simple thing behind it called Atlantic Records, and this is a track from it. This is called Black Dog.


07-Sep-1971   Boston Garden  

Now, we'll have to do something about the usherettes.


07-Sep-1971   Boston Garden  

Thank you. Listen, listen, we got to put one thing straight cause we had a bit of trouble in New York the other day where so many people got on the stage, and it fell apart, and ah, if you'll listen to me, listen, listen, you must listen. If everybody get's on the stage the police will stop the thing, right? So all we want to do is to do as much of the new stuff, and the old stuff, that we can without it, without is all falling apart. So, if you dig that, right, we're gonna try. How are you upstairs, alright? We're gonna try and do something that's ah, this is a track off the new album, and if it becomes impossible to do it, we're gonna have to stop. we are going to find it impossible to play, so please be quiet. This is a quiet thing. It's called Stairway to Heaven.


07-Sep-1971   Boston Garden  

This is virtually an impossibility, but we want to do some acoustic things.


07-Sep-1971   Boston Garden  

Shh. Quiet. We're having such a problem here cause we can't hear.


07-Sep-1971   Boston Garden  

John Bonham. Moby Dick

09-Sep-1971 Hampton Roads Coliseum  

Good evening. This is a, a rather cooler thing from the last album. It's called 'Since I've Been Loving You'.


09-Sep-1971 Hampton Roads Coliseum  

We got a, we got an album coming out in about four weeks time, which is ah, a little over due, but we've been having a lot of ah. There seem to be a lot of strange people who try to make records, and don't quite get it together, like record companies, and things like that. This is one of the tracks from it. In a minute. This is called 'Black Dog'.


09-Sep-1971 Hampton Roads Coliseum  

'Black Dog'. Here's a really far out ditty from long long ago. On bass, Mr John Paul Jones.


09-Sep-1971 Hampton Roads Coliseum  

Most of all us. There ain't, there ain't a name. It's called 'Stairway to Heaven'. Now listen, shut up, this is quite, this is quite a normal thing , you know. We've been in America now for quite a while, and we never expect a continuous show cause everything keeps breaking down. So we thought we'd just take things a little bit slower. And over to William Tell.


09-Sep-1971 Hampton Roads Coliseum  

John Paul Jones, electric piano. Makes a change, doesn't it? We just come from New York, and this is a New York song.


09-Sep-1971 Hampton Roads Coliseum  

Right, you're sitting down. So are we. Far out. Can't hear ya. This is a the part where we usually ask people to stop falling out of the spotlights for a bit, and things like that. Fortunately, there's no trouble tonight.


09-Sep-1971 Hampton Roads Coliseum  

This is a birdseed. This is another track off the forthcoming LP. Just do a tune up. Tea and honey. Any questions? This is called 'Going to California', which is where the sun shines, or so they say. Shut up.

Thank you.


11-Sep-1971   War Memorial Auditorium  

Listen, I don't know if there's anybody sitting down beyond all this. Now it's going to be pretty impossible for everybody who's standing, to sit down, otherwise they'll take up twice as much room, right? So if everybody moves a little back cause otherwise so many people ain't going to be carted all over the place. A little do un to your brother, and sister. Right, this is something from New York city, which is a place not to far away from here.


11-Sep-1971   War Memorial Auditorium  

Sorry, we're gonna sit down now. Listen, if we're gonna sitdown, I reckon you ought to sit down, so as the people who are behind you can see what's going on while they're sitting down. Far out. Now you see ah, the essence of these numbers we want to do now is silence. You remember, you remember that. It was a long time ago, and the crying of little voices doesn't really take us back to the Welsh mountains. so ah, if you could think about your brother behind you, oh bless your heart, we'll share it afterwards. No listen, cool it, if there's anyone wh wants to see farther back, he ain't goona be able to see nothing at all. So it's no good if you do a big outcry, none of us are gonna get anywhere at all. So, far out. So be quiet please. Shh.


11-Sep-1971   War Memorial Auditorium  

We're gonna boogie everyday. This is another Shh, this is another sitting down song, ah any donations for the man who has been helping people get over the fence just throw it on the stage here. This is a thing called Going to California.

We ah, recently, in fact we just come from the United States of America, which is no fault of our own, but um, we'd like to do something that we really feel is, if anybody's been there, it's about five thousand oilslicks away, ah , this is something that we really think surgical rubber wear, this is a, that was very good. Nice. This is something, that's John Bonham there doing that. This is something for New York. It smells.

This is a, this is um, also dedicated to another part of America. We come from England, which is quite a way away from here, and you may well clap,, but ah, but America seems to be ah, where we happen to be ending up quite a bit, and in Amrica there was a place once like Pompei, and places like that, only it was called San Fransisco, and San Fransisco is where we all brought our beads, and our bells, and our guns, and our bombs, and everything else, and we dedicate this to what used to be San Fransisco. It's called Going to California. Thank you.

Good evening. We'd like to, uh, thank you for having us here, to begin with. And, um, we didn't expect it to be as warm as this. There you go. This is something a little slower and it'll probably, uh, cool us off a bit. It's called 'Since I've Been Loving You.'


27-Sep-1971 Shiei Taikukan Hall  

uh, in about, uh, allo allo instant light, in about three weeks time we have a new LP, the fourth album coming out, all being well, from Warner Pioneer. And, uh, this is one of the tracks. It's called 'Black Dog.' Thank you.


27-Sep-1971 Shiei Taikukan Hall  

Thank you. It's getting better now. The microphone seems to be, uh, cracking out and making silly noises and all sorts of things. Next, it will be me. And, um, this is one from a very very long time ago. I should say, maybe, three years. Right on, the palace I remember that well.


27-Sep-1971 Shiei Taikukan Hall  

Thank you. Well this is ah, this is another track from the new album ah, this is called 'Stairway to Heaven'. Good evening.


27-Sep-1971 Shiei Taikukan Hall  

Thank you. This is a bird seed commercial. This is for New York.


27-Sep-1971 Shiei Taikukan Hall  

This is, ah, this is the point in the proceedings, ah, where we take a seat. Good evening! Where've you been? Good evening! That's better. What have you been doing? You've sitting there all too polite and you must enjoy yourselves. That's the whole idea of everything. I don't want to offend anybody but that's what it's all about. Honourable English custom - one must enjoy oneself. Tea. I don't know whether you've tried it with honey, but it works.


27-Sep-1971 Shiei Taikukan Hall  

Thank you. What is wrong? Well, this is, uh, um, while we're sitting down, this is another track from the fourth album and it's a sitting down song. It's, uh, that's why we're sitting down and not standing up. And things like that, or words to that effect. And, um, this is in a different tuning. So while Jimmy rearranges the tuning I'll have to say something very silly like I've just said. And hey presto…. So, bless you. Um, this is called 'Going To California.' It's not too far away. Sshhh.


27-Sep-1971 Shiei Taikukan Hall  

Thank you. Um, yes.


27-Sep-1971 Shiei Taikukan Hall  

Thank you. Good evening. That's better. Ah so, Ah so. Smile.

Ari gato. Tonight, tonight you will be happy. And so will Phil Carson. This is, uh, this is indeed a pleasure. We had a wonderful, we came from Hiroshima yesterday and, uh, your glorious train was really far out. Long big train with many sleeping and things like that and such. Good milk. And, uh, so we're in top spirits and, uh, to avoid any more bullshit, we'll go straight on. This is called 'Since I've Been Loving You.'


28-Sep-1971 Koseinenkin Kaikan  

Ari gato. I have a terrible problem with my shoes nightly. They keep coming undone. But we, uh, tonight you'll be more than happy and, thank you. This is one from many moons ago. It's called, uh, no, I'll leave you to guess. Mr Jones? Good evening. Right on. This is a thing, in about three weeks time we'll have a, a new LP coming out, by the fourth album, and, uh, this is one of the tracks from it. It's called 'Black Dog.'

Wait a minute. Um, this is one from about the same time as that. When we, uh, this is the guy, him. Totally different, right. John Paul Jones.


28-Sep-1971 Koseinenkin Kaikan  

indeed a great and most honorable pleasure. Far out, man. This is another track off the fourth album, uh, and, um, this, uh, takes on an entirely different mood, really, to anything that we've ever done before. And, uh, it's called 'Stairway To Heaven.'


28-Sep-1971 Koseinenkin Kaikan  

Ari gato. Good evening! You are too quiet. Much too quiet. Dishonorably quiet. It's not cool. Not far away to the East there is, uh.


28-Sep-1971 Koseinenkin Kaikan  

Thank you. Thank you. Um, this, this next song is, um, another one from the fourth album. And, uh, this is, uh, no, it's nothing to do with that at all, man. No, no, now listen, you've got to wait. …, there's no more use saying that. That's all you know in English. I know a little bit more, you see? Now this is off the fourth album and it's a sitting down one. 'Cuz I must have sat through about thirty times for us at two each. If I have spoken more English over here than I ever did in America, it just means I'm happier here, no … ever the same way out. So this is called, uh, 'Going To California.' Which is, California being, uh, somewhere between here and the lost continent of Doom (?) and, uh, Atlantis, and, uh, the British Isles. Nevertheless, some people go there. In fact, in California, there is a place called San Francisco and, uh, San Francisco is, uh, I mean, uh, I really wish it could be …, promise they're not on stage, but it was a wonderful place, so, 'Going To California.'


28-Sep-1971 Koseinenkin Kaikan  

Thank you much.


28-Sep-1971 Koseinenkin Kaikan

Ah, common complaint in Osaka, rice in hair. You think I'm joking, right? We gotta tell you, that, uh, we spend six weeks in America, and, uh, that isn't even worth a round of applause, but we did, and, uh, we spent two weeks in wonderful glorious Japan, which has been incredible. Great hotels. Great bars. Great people. Um, and without giving you any, it's not bullshit, really, because, uh, this is our last night in Japan, and we, and we gonna have a good time, and, uh, I think you will too.

29-Sep-1971 Koseinenkin Kaikan  

Ari gato! Hello? There must be something to follow that. I'm sure that, uh, there is. Um. This is another, um, another song off the new, the fourth LP, uh, which we did last night, too. Did anybody come last night? Bless your socks. Well I came here last night. This is called 'Going to California.'


29-Sep-1971 Koseinenkin Kaikan

Right, ah, here's one um, we dedicated to New York cause we've been there about seventy nine thousand times, and I don't know whether, what did he say? Anyway, this is about New York. It's called Celebration Day. Pardon? Well this is ah, our one and only um, ah, shhh.


13-Nov-1971   Caird Hall  

Now then, well, I don't know what to say except that, Clive what are you doing? This is Clive. We've played a lot of places in Scotland. You what? So this is one from the new album. This is called Black Dog.

Thank you very much. Good night. So listen, if you jump up on the stage and really, and give them a bad time, then it breaks the whole thing right? You know what I mean?


13-Nov-1971   Caird Hall  

Good evening. Now don't forget what I said cause that's really important cause we've been playing in Scotland, amongst us all, for about six years, and it's always been the same. Great people, now listen, shut up, shut up, listen.


16-Nov-1971   St. Matthew's Baths  

Well Good evening, good evening. Well, its really far out to be back. Last time we were here we were with Jimmy James. We'd like to dedicate this show to Jimmy James, and his good good band. Right.


16-Nov-1971   St. Matthew's Baths  

Thank you, Good evening um, we got a new album that came out about ah, um, well it was long overdue,as far as we were concerned. We had a lot of trouble wuth it and things, ah, this is one of the tracks from it. It's called Black Dog.


16-Nov-1971   St. Matthew's Baths  

Yeah, thank you, uh, I'm sure you must've had a town hall, um anyway. It's only played a mile from Birmingham. This is ah, one, this is not a joking matter. This is a track called Since I've Been Loving You. You're very polite.


16-Nov-1971   St. Matthew's Baths  

Oh dear, this is a, hang on, this is another thing off the new album, and, alright John? This is um, this is called um, Rock and Roll.


16-Nov-1971   St. Matthew's Baths  

Thank you. You may wonder, what all the joviality's is, or where it's at, but ah, I got no idea. We decided that we watched too many people getting very serious about the whole affair, and after all, the finest thing in the world is to smile. So, my tea's much better. This is um, anyway, this is ah, this is called Stairway to Heaven.


16-Nov-1971   St. Matthew's Baths  

A long time ago, about 1960, late 66, before that in California ah, there was a town called San Fransisco, and ah, you know I'm not being clever cause I said it was, and I'm not being clever because it's still there really. It's just that the vibe that came from that place. Any way, there was this town that gave the world a good start to begin, which we must agree, and ah, if you go back now you'd see it's still full of Bowler hatted beatniks, which is an expression that you'd find. Three years ago, you would walk down the streets. Anyway, this is a, to cut a long story short, Califorinia ah, were I come, no, or there I came. This is called Going to California.


16-Nov-1971   St. Matthew's Baths  

Thank you California, and all that dreams.


16-Nov-1971   St. Matthew's Baths  

San Fransisco, Ipswich, so it's all somewhere irrelevent. We got a lot of little songs that we keep doing in complete sense. It's really nice to be able to do that except that most of the audience goes to the bar, or something like that. So we're gonna tray and keep it very serious.


16-Nov-1971   St. Matthew's Baths  

I tell you what, after a one hundred and eighty mile drive, it's strange to be in such good spirits. Anyway, as you, as you were. This is one from such a long time back. It's going to be a silly night I'm afraid. We'd like you all to feel at home. Think of the, we're all of one mind. Here we go.


16-Nov-1971   St. Matthew's Baths  

Shhh, shhh.


16-Nov-1971   St. Matthew's Baths  

ah On the other side from San Fransisco, there's a place called New York. Far out, and don't, I mean John Sebastian says a lot fo goof things about New York. I don't know whether he said anything about New York, in fact, um, I think that it's about the most appropriate place this can go with. It's called Celebration Day. Thank you. Thank you.


16-Nov-1971   St. Matthew's Baths  

It's been a veyr great ah, pleasure. So far, so good. Mr. Bonham suggested something about going down and cancelling the states tour. So this is for John. This is for John.


16-Nov-1971   St. Matthew's Baths  

Thank you very much. Good night. Good night. Good evening, as John Paul Jones, ah well. Hang on, shhh, listen now, now listen. It's no good, shhh. We're in a bit of a tete a tete. Hang on, yeah. This is a, ah this is one from everybody, everybody bang a gong. This is an old Eddie Conchran thing.


16-Nov-1971   St. Matthew's Baths  

We keep on, right on. We;re gonna try um, there's been a request. Do you know those dances that you use to go to where everybody used to walk around in a big long line, and the poor group was getting about seven pounds ten shillings? We're gonna play something by Led Zeppelin.


16-Nov-1971   St. Matthew's Baths  

Thank you very much. Good night.


20-Nov-1971   Empire Pool

20-Nov-1971   Empire Pool  

Good evening. Good evening. Turn the light round on them. Let's have a look at them. Good evening. Right, if you're gonna keep warm, you got to keep doing things like that. This is one of the over due things that we've had a bit of messing around with. This is called Black Dog.


20-Nov-1971   Empire Pool  

Well it's amazing sound isn't it? Can't hear a thing. anyway, this is a, one from ah, way back when. Since I've Been Loving You. I expected a bit more from the pigs, didn't you? I could have brought some goats.


20-Nov-1971   Empire Pool

20-Nov-1971   Empire Pool

20-Nov-1971   Empire Pool  

Right, on our travels, we go from place to place. San Fransisco. At one time it was a totally amazing scene, and unfortunately now it's got a bit, the same that's crept into San Fransisco has crep in everywhere else at different times. A pity. It's loss though. Anyway, it gave room to a thing called Going to California. Going to California.


20-Nov-1971   Empire Pool  

Thank you. This next one was born in ah, Snowdonia. This is the place to be after a war. That's the Way.

Good evening. Good evening. That's better.


20-Nov-1971   Empire Pool  

Thank you. Right, I was saying something about San Fransisco. Well New York is ah, another kettle of fish. It has nothing to do with that. In fact, it's quite the opposite. So this is a song from New York. It's called Celebration Day.

And that's the place called New York and, um, this might seem as … seeing the situation as being rather funny, but, uh, it is. This is a thing dedicated to New York. It's called 'Celebration Day.'


24-Nov-1971 Free Trade Hall

This is gonna be ah, somewhere, a little further past New York is California, and ah, and a lot of people with flowers in their hair. Some of them kept it up when others got a little disheartened. A lot of the people stayed there, and we've been there a few times, and over the period of time we've been going over there we've noted a change, and it's a very sad one, and so now, it's like good old Bradford. It's a wonderful place to be. So we're Going to California.

19-Feb-1972 Memorial Drive Park  

Why don't you be quiet? You're about the noisiest people really, well one or two people are, so just shut up a bit.

With any luck we might get this clever man at the front with the silver shirt to shut up. He's the big hero at every concert. He's the kind of guy who goes home at night and jerks off, right? And he loves is, he loves it. Right, well this is one for you darling. Actually, they got a program on the television I saw tonight. What's it called, that thing? What's that program called?

Well. We'd like to do something that, uh, we wrote in honor of a nineteen year old black Labrador. And, a few minor alterations. This is called 'Black Dog.'


25-Feb-1972 Western Springs Stadium  

It's, uh, we'd like to really thank you for making this, for your faith and making this the biggest thing that's ever happened in New Zealand. And, uh, all the travelling involved and all that sort of thing. It's really an amazing thing to hear. We've come fourteen to thirty-six thousand miles or however far, but at least we stopped in Bombay. Which is a good place to go after a war. This is, uh, one from the third album. This is called 'Since I've Been Loving You.' Thank you, thank you.


25-Feb-1972 Western Springs Stadium  

Good evening. Right, we'd ah like to do something off the fourth album, off the third album. This is a thing ah, it's about a little town not too far from here called New York. It once used to be new. It's called 'Celebration Day'.

Anyway, to follow the fourth. To follow the third came the fourth. This is called 'Stairway to Heaven.'

We ah, we have this sort of thing all over the place. What we like to do is to do as much as possible in the time that we've got. So please don't shout out because we're gonna do it eventually. This is a thing ah, once again not too far away from New York is California, and a I suppose being in the southen Hemisphere all you do is read about it, but let me tell ya, it's a wonderful thing. If you go back there now then it's a little bit tarnished, but nevertheless it's an experience worth writing down. So, I can't hear you about three miles away Jack. This is called 'Going to California'.


25-Feb-1972 Western Springs Stadium  

Urm, here's one for everybody the other side of the spotlight…..Well,you keep shouting, I kept thinking there was a bull fight over there, and was it an American voice? Sit down you guys, sit down man, sit down. Far out man, really. Well we come from New Zealand so Good Evening.


25-Feb-1972 Western Springs Stadium  

We'd, uh, like to thank the New Zealand Railways. Well, what was the blue light on those trains? Well can I tell ya, um, where we come from, um, we started all this trouble a long time ago. I think somebody even invented a kettle that, with a lid that went up and down in the air. Well, we've had no success ever since that kettle, really. Nothing runs on time. No food. You, you can't eat unless you're in and out. And thank you for catching the train there.


25-Feb-1972 Western Springs Stadium  

We'd now like to bring on our vocalist um John Henry Bonham. Bless you. This is ah, this is all about um, a dog with blue eyes. I won't even go into the story 'cause I wouldn't like to wake anybody up. Actually, you can help us out.


25-Feb-1972 Western Springs Stadium  

You seem to have found it. The, the North Sea has been hiding in the equipment all the way here. Well, with every concert that reaches the size that this, um, uh, they reckon this was gonna reach, there are a lot of problems. And, uh, and coming from Bombay and trying to ignore the jokers and coming from Bombay at the same time, uh, we don't know what these problems were but, um, when we, haa, haa, haa, haa. I said coming from Bombay, not Birmingham. Now, uh, anyway. It's all, it's all very fresh and very new so this is one called 'Dazed and Confused.' Good evening! We want about a year in Wellington 'cos me auntie's down in Wellington, and she can't be here tonight.

27-Feb-1972 Showgrounds  

Good afternoon. Now listen. We've, uh, we've already come across the one problem that we were told about. Now there's been a lot of mistakes about this thing. But we don't want to make any mistakes and neither do you. Right? So don't come past this barrier. Otherwise we're gonna be in the shit. Now why don't you sit down and then the people who are maybe ain't as tall as you behind can view things as well. And if it rains too much we're gonna have to stop. And that's a fact 'cuz we'll blow up. Sit down! Take a seat. The cows are using it mates, so you might. And please, please don't leave any excretery matter , 'cuz that's for the next …. Well, this is one about a nineteen year old black labrador. It's called 'Black Dog.'


27-Feb-1972 Showgrounds  

Sit down. Let's, let's get some season together. When people sit down they seem to be a lot quieter. Well that's just about what we want at the moment. We're too far from that place called New York, otherwise, uh, a place called San Francisco and, um, we should all say thank you to San Francisco for so many things. Love and Jefferson Airplane and all, all the, the beauty that came out of it. But its got really twisted round now and as I see a girl's thrown a tin can over there, I think, my word, how far is San Francisco after all? And, uh, this is something with a little bit of relation to San Francisco. It's called 'Going to California.'


27-Feb-1972 Showgrounds  

That's some recognition.


27-Feb-1972 Showgrounds  

Thank you very much, man. Ahh, John Law. He used to be with Peter Jay and the Jaywalkers, a big group in England. Fantastic. Imagine that was before the, uh, bore war Ha ha. This is, uh, a thousand years back, the last time we were here. Hang on. Can we just have a bit of quiet behind us?


27-Feb-1972 Showgrounds  

I was at Giza. Haa. Straight from California. We'd like to now incorporate the twenty-three, five, seven more, or how ever many thousand people there are out here. 'Cuz there seems to be a little thing going on over there that, uh, that they … about the fact that we're over here. And we'd like all the policemen on the roof to join in. But maybe you don't, I really mean it, you know. I, I'm not being funny. I really mean it. This is all about a dog with blue eyes. Never getting too close with a woman. Haa haa. Now that's for that big dog down there.


27-Feb-1972 Showgrounds

29-Feb-1972 Festival Hall  

Good evening. Well, this is the first time since we've been in the country that ah we've played inside, and it's really hot. We've just come from three feet snow, and things like that, but this is one dedicated to ah, a labradour, a black labradour who was about nineteen years, hang on listen, got to tell you. A lot of people think that it's the kind of chicks we dig, but ah, it's dedicated to a dog that was so old, that he could only walk up the garden, but he could never quite make it back, so we had to help him. Haa haa haa. 'Black Dog.'


29-Feb-1972 Festival Hall  

Well. As I was saying, um, this one's from the third album. It's called 'Since I've Been Loving You.'


29-Feb-1972 Festival Hall  

Right, now not too far away from ah, this place is a place called New York, and um, it depends, it depends on you how far removed it is. It's really not all that nice a place to be really. There's a lot of things going on. So we wrote a song about it, and it's about all the social strife, and it's about. They always say, have you got a message with your music, and we always saw no 'cause we all know what it's about. So this is called 'Celebration Day'.


29-Feb-1972 Festival Hall  

We've got ah, right now we've got a fourth LP out. Just had a little bit of refreshment. That's just what I'm drinking. This is ah, now you know what the lemon song's all about, or do ya? Well, we'd like you to try and maintain some kind of silence…….. This is a, this is a thing called 'Stairway to Heaven'.


29-Feb-1972 Festival Hall  

Good evening. There was twenty six thousand people on Sunday in ah, Sydney, and ah, even though two of them said good evening, it sounded a thousand times louder, and this was in the afternoon too. Right now this is where we desire even more silence because we're gonna try and play very quietly. This is something called ah, 'Going to California'.


29-Feb-1972 Festival Hall  

Thank you. Ta. This is a song that we conceived in Snowdonia. That's the mountains that we just happened to, hang on, we gotta tune up…...Wait a minute, wait a minute. If you gonna make a noise like that then there's no point anybody coming to play for you, so for christs sake shuddup, …. For right now, will you sit down up front and then they can see …. Right, now if everybody's sitting down then these people in the back will quickly start learning some manners, right? And it really takes time to get quiet, as you can hear …. Yep, one more week. Can we be guaranteed that he's gonna ….? I fully realize that we have a lot of rain here, but, uh, it really isn't, uh, …. How's that little spin three thousand miles the wrong way. Ok.


29-Feb-1972 Festival Hall  

Amazing…. A few years ago, before anybody'd been here. Right.


29-Feb-1972 Festival Hall  

Thank you. After all that racket that you made were gonna beat the hell out of it, we want you to help us. This is about a dog with blue eyes.


29-Feb-1972 Festival Hall  

You must realize that the people you meet in the street tomorrow are the people who have been shouting and making this a bit of a nauseating time. Right, I don't care whether you sit down or stand up. We're just gonna play from now on. This is one from about thirty five years ago.


29-Feb-1972 Festival Hall  

Well, that's one we enjoyed doing.


29-Feb-1972 Festival Hall  

Um, we've been wigglin' across this song so many times before. The people say out loud. It really don't make no difference 'cuz we'd only have time. We don't even work unless .... ... there's more work to do, remember this. .... Anyway, it's nice to be, uh, in country Spain, and, uh, we gotta fly back in tomorrow; there's another tour. Hancock. I see .... It seems .... Ladies and gentlemen, our drummer, also our backing vocalist, guitar player, tambourine player, ..., in love with many women. He's really ticked off if you laugh. Ladies and gentlemen, John Henry Bonham, 'Moby Dick!'

This is called Since I've Been Loving You. ah We seem to have ah, already adapted, so ah, I can't name, but you must try and be quiet please, or whatever the hell it is. Shut up. We're just ready for Mr. Jones equipment to ah, to reach a peak. BEar with us brothers. Shhh, please shut up. Mr. Jones says it's OK.

28-May-1972   Vorst Nationaal  

Hang on, are you guys going to go and sit down or are we fucking off? Now sit down. There's more noise here than at a cattle market in fiddleminster. Let's be nice, a relationship between one another, if only for three hours. Alright, this is called Going to California.


28-May-1972   Vorst Nationaal  

Thank you. You really are an uncontrollable munge. We want to do some more quiet things, now it depends on you. If you, if you keep abusing it. Just sit down. We can be here all night talking about whether to sit or stand, but with the language barrier included, it becomes a difficulty cause of your friends in the back are just going to make noise. So shut up, and sit down, and we'll sing a song about you.


28-May-1972   Vorst Nationaal  

Right, thank you very much for your cooperation. It's just unreal. This is one from ah, when we made our first album. It happened so quickly that ah, we didn't really know it happened, and this is one of the things that came out of the fortnight of studies.


28-May-1972   Vorst Nationaal  

This is a song of ah, of love. It's very seldom come by in this day and age, at least songwise anyway. I've heard it though a few times, and last night was the last.


28-May-1972   Vorst Nationaal  

Thank you.


07-Jun-1972   The Forum

07-Jun-1972   The Forum  

Well, right, something a little slower. This is from the third album. Listen, I can hear it. It really doesn't sound so, so good. ah Everywhere we go around the country everybody wants somebody else to stand up or sit down, and any time I say something about either, listen, shut up a minute. Any time that I say something about one thing or the othere, there;s lots of chaos. So, could you sit down? Really. This is a thing called Since I've Been Loving You.


07-Jun-1972   The Forum  

ah We've never done here before. IT came one night ah, when the moon was bright. We'd like to dedicate this. Stairway to Heaven.


07-Jun-1972   The Forum  

Thank you. So ah, so we've been on the road so long we can only go about half an hour, and then sit down. So please sit down. You sit down as well, eh? You must be able to do it. This is a, a song based on new experience in ah, San Fransisco. It;s called Going to California.


07-Jun-1972   The Forum  

Good evening. I'm starting to feel it. This is a bit of a digression to that. This is a song, that's the next album, eh sorry, yeah, go back. A song that my momma sang to me when I was about sixteen, when I left home. It seems we could do with a bit of assistance. Right.


07-Jun-1972   The Forum  

He's a big fan of Johnny Mathis, and ah, this is about a dog.


07-Jun-1972   The Forum

Thank you. Right, we got the string fixed. It's really nice to be on holiday again, after ten months in England, it get's ah, this is ah, this is a song dedicated to ah, an old hunting dog in England who is nineteen years old, and he used to go out and see his old lady friend, and he used to get so wasted that he couldn't get back, and we used to have to carry him back. He was a labradour, and he was really quite thin.


09-Jun-1972   Charlotte Coliseum  

Good evening at the back. I didn't know you were there until I heard you snoring. Nice one. Sounds very much like the beginning of a bull fight. This is something from ah, actually that was something from the next album. This is something from the last one, and it requires a little bit of silence, ah not to much greasy football stuff. Stairway to Heaven.


09-Jun-1972   Charlotte Coliseum  

This is ah, this is um, from a far away place. We've been to some good places in England, and things like Glastonbury, where King Arthur once led his band s, or whatever he did. I don't think he had bands. It's good to think of it so everynight we're gonna do this one. It's about as close as you can get when you're in New York.


09-Jun-1972   Charlotte Coliseum  

We introduce, it's not that bad really, our precussionist is gonna join us on vocals. John Bonham is gonna sing. Hang on a minute, this distorted man. Just a minor problem. Just don't go away or fall asleep again. You can join us on this one.


09-Jun-1972   Charlotte Coliseum  

That was all about a dog who a lot of people who don't really listen to the song, press men said, man you must have a fine chick. Well that's another drink. Five minutes.


09-Jun-1972   Charlotte Coliseum  

What we're gonna try and do is reach some kind of raport with the officialdom, which is cool. So, whatever you do, don't collapse the stage, or sit on the stage or anything. Otherwise, otherwise, we're all gonna blow it, OK? This is a song of love. No.


09-Jun-1972   Charlotte Coliseum  

Thank you. Good evening. Do you reckon it's humming? Is it humming yet? Weighing in at two hundred and ten pounds, two hundred and six pounds, John Henry Bonham. Moby Dick.


09-Jun-1972   Charlotte Coliseum  

John Bonham


09-Jun-1972   Charlotte Coliseum

09-Jun-1972   Charlotte Coliseum  

See ya soon. See ya again.


11-Jun-1972   Civic Center  

Good evening.


11-Jun-1972   Civic Center  

We're having a bit of trouble. The guitar's falling apart. Anyway, it's very nice to be back. It's really nice to be back though. It wont take long. It's just a case of, hang on. Right, this is ah, this is one that was written about an old dog who used to go outside to see his woman while we were recording the last album, and he was nineteen years old, and he would leave in the morning, and unfortunately he used to get there and he couldn't make it back. We used to have to carry him back. He was a good dog, and he was a black dog.


11-Jun-1972   Civic Center  

Alright, now without technical glitches, we're gonna try to get it together. This is a song a little easier. This is ah, a song of love, the trials of love. This is called Since I've Been Loving You.


11-Jun-1972   Civic Center  

ah This is something else that's gonna send you to, ah, this was conceived, I think, in a moment of lightness. A moment of lightness meets the dark against the gloom. This is called ah, Stairway to Heaven. Good evening.


11-Jun-1972   Civic Center  

Thanks very much. Ta. If you could just sit down, as we sat down last time we were here. We're gonna do a medley of tunes. We went to see Elvis Presley the other day. Far out, as you would say. I tell you that that guy did so much for music a long time ago. He went in the army and never got hurt. He was really, I'll tell you what, he was really something. Now his voice has gone down now 2 or 3 tones, and keys seem to have changed a bit. His waist is a bit bigger than it was at one time. This is a song about ah, one of the best of the states in America, where we've had much fun, much pleasure in. I've forgotten how they called it on the lisence plates of the cars, ah , I don't know what it's called, but ah, this is really dedicated to when you're coming from Denver Colorado on an airplane, and you land in, in California, and come through about six hundred feet of grey rock, and it never goes away. Nevertheless, we think it is a good place. So we're Going to California.


11-Jun-1972   Civic Center  

This is ah, this is another one of those songs.


11-Jun-1972   Civic Center  

This is a song about the days of the flourescent green lights, and were inspired, but never written down, about the good days.


11-Jun-1972   Civic Center  

It's written about, I've got four dogs, and one of them's the father of ah, of the other two, and he's got blue eyes. His name's Stryder, and he's quite a character, and without Johnny Cash. We'd like to, at this point, put the spotlight on our precussionist who's singing. This is the ninth tour of America, and we've finnaly got him to a microphone, and he's two hundred and four pounds of good times. Maybe I told on him. Anyway, we're very happy these days.


11-Jun-1972   Civic Center  

He's a very good dog. Right, well we must. Mr. Bonham would like to say something, John? This is one for the man with the loudest voice. This is something that happened in the first three hours of our childhood. So we start with John Paul Jones.


11-Jun-1972   Civic Center  

Could you stand still? ah Could you stand still for a bit? Cause, our precussionist, ladies and gentlemen, straight from the international of Vegas. Weighing two hundred and four pounds. John Bonham. Moby Dick.


11-Jun-1972   Civic Center  

John Bonham. Let's hear it for John Bonham. John Henry Bonham. Good evening. Anyway, how's it for John Bonham? Let's hear it for John Bonham.

Thank you . Good evening. Black Dog.


13-Jun-1972   The Spectrum  

Stairway to Heaven.


13-Jun-1972   The Spectrum  

This song my momma used to sing to me.


13-Jun-1972   The Spectrum  

Here's one that takes us back to the childhood of the group.


13-Jun-1972   The Spectrum  

This is a song of love. Hang on.


13-Jun-1972   The Spectrum  

Weighing in at two hundred and four pounds. John Bonham. Moby Dick.


14-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

It's nice to be back again. It's gonna be far out. We see you moving around ....


14-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

Well, Yes. Oh, yeah. … tuning, man. Can you hear it? We're gonna do a song about, about a labrador who is nineteen years old and he used to walk to movie with his young lady labrador. And because of his age he could just about make it to see her and boogie, and he couldn't get back home again. So we used to carry him back, and, uh, this is what we call 'Black Dog.'


14-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

Thank you. Good night. Right, after three I want you all to smile. Three. Well, that's alright. …, we need some more top levels …. Well, this is, uh, this is an old love song. It's called 'Since I've Been Loving You.' And we say it's for everybody that we love. Just a minor problem with the, uh, keyboards. It's a nightly problem when it's cool. ….


14-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

This is something new. It's not that new. It came waiting. I think it was ..., than not. Now I see. Thank you. Why, thank you, .... This is called, uh, 'Stairway to Heaven.' Must have been a good night.


14-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

We all know because it's the truth .... I don't know the name of ... company, but every time we sat down to do something acoustic everybody's, ah, man, a bummer, man, why you wanna .... So we're gonna sit down. This next song is, uh, is, um, a sort of, uh, Jimmy came to America long time before I did , but, uh, I, I think the first time we came here was, but the group's been going four years now which makes us all old age pensioners, but, uh, when we first came to San Francisco there was a place that really bowled me over coming from England and I'd never seen anything like it, there was a feeling about the place that ah, was foreign to anywhere outside of America. Anyways, it's spread throughout the world really. And that's what keeps you there, and everything else. San Francisco is really the first place I felt it probably. So this is 'Going to California.'


14-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

Right, I tell you what it's, it's I feel….The next song is uh, ……the whole…can join in the chorus.


14-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

Thank you. Thank you very kindly. This ah, this is a song that I don't know about that, but this is a song that relates, in my imagination at least, to the golden days, before England was England. When it was all broken into little places like Wessex, Mercia, and ah, the feeling of Chivalry was still in the air and King Arthur used to ride around, or walk around, doing good deeds, and there was a general good feeling about the place. That's a very soft way to put it of course but ah, this is a song that brings to mind an era ….


14-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

At this point, the spotlight goes onto our precussionist because he's about to sing. It's the biggest deal since the motor car. John Henry Bonham on vocals. This is a song about, { Here's a nice story, it's sad but true. It's about a girl that I once knew.} this is one for Dion anyway cause I heard he was absolutely incredible the other day, and Dion and the Belmonts that is. Remember those it's ...? Too much. This is about a dog with blue eyes. It's got nothing to do with Dion….. You can help us too.


14-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

Thank you…. ?


14-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

It's too. But he's trying not to do it two ..., we're on a holiday. And this, tour, has gone crazy. Everybody's had such a good time and I'm not bullshitting you because we've been to a lot of places apart from New York, lusted our wives, did all sorts of things. How about that …? This is a song of love, again.


14-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

Thank you. Ladies and gentlemen, weighing in at two hundred and four pounds, sorry, he's eaten nothing since he got here, probably ninty-nine pounds of love and joy, John 'Good Vibes' Bonham, 'Moby Dick.'


14-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

……………


14-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

Thank you very much. .... Good evening! What you wanna hear? Ohh, that's right. …. Sweet. Right, we want you to ….


14-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

Thank you.


14-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

Thank you very much. Well! There's people …. Good evening! ….One more.


14-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

Good night. < cut audience> Good evening! We didn't want to believe … covers, right? I wanna hear you louder than us, come on!


15-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

Good evening. Well, last night, uh, was anybody here last night? Well, um, you really did us a mischief. I gotta tell ya, you really did us a mischief. I think we're gonna go on, uh, we're gonna go on that security thing where they give you money when you can't work after that. So those who were here last night know that this one's about a dog who used to boogie too much. A little dog. He's on National Aid now in England. He reached such an old age that everybody had to carry him about to his different chicks. We met him about a year ago. He's quite incredible. This is called, uh, 'Black Dog.'


15-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

Thank you. Yes, that was some dog. This is, uh, is somethin' a little bit slower. This is called 'Since I've Been Loving You'.


15-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

Thank you very kindly. It's more than a pleasure to be here, after last night. It's gonna be as good as last night tonight otherwise. This is a song that ah amazed. I think amazed us really. It's a real gas to be able to do it every night. It's one of those things you could never get fed up singing. It's called 'Stairway to Heaven'.


15-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

Thank you very much. Well, I'm twenty three years old now, so I got to sit down it's getting too rough. This is by, this is, uh, what's that ...? one two, one two. That's really unimpressive, I mean, we just, we just, uh, we just paddled six thousand miles to get here. .... It's really no big deal now. We can do that in the diner. This is a song that ah, about one of the most infectious places that I've ever been to. The freaks will freak you out and everything's a new wonders. 'Going to California'. Let's hear it for John Paul Jones' electric mandolin.


15-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

Thank you. Right, this is a song ah,that ah, was first born on the mountain sides in Wales, which is a, a far cry from a point in a direction, and every night we do it it, coz it's a groove.


15-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

This, uh, this next song is, uh, haa haa haa haa. This song is, uh, a song we can really only dedicate to the good times. The good days, and pine for the days of Tintagel and Camelot. Now that's not a, that's not a motel somewhere in Conneticut.


15-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

Thank you. Now, let me tell you something. For those of you who are wondering why we're doing so much acoustic stuff, ah, for those of you shouting out, just do your thing man. I just got to tell you that that's what we come here for, but the other thing is that our drummer really has to have about ten minutes off every now and then, during the set, so we've had to extend the acoustic, uh, set, but he's back on now, and ah, we'd like to feature Mr Bonham at the microphone. It's quite an occasion really. The last time he was sitting at a microphone was when he was singing 'Big girls don't cry'. This is about a dog with blue eyes.


15-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

Thank you very much. He'd be very pleased with you. Good evening stray cat.


15-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

Good evening. Somebody's thrown me a pencil. I'm gonna have to hand this in I'm afraid. It goes in the tin.


15-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

Thank you very much. Is everybody smiling? Our percussionist is about to ah, ladies and gentlemen, our number two vocalist. Coming in at one hundred and ninety nine pounds. Sorry one hundred and ninety seven. He hasn't eatin since we got here. John Bonham, 'Moby Dick.'


15-Jun-1972 Nassau Veterans Mem'l Coliseum  

John Henry Bonham! One hundred and ninty-nine pounds! One hundred and ninty-eight pounds! John Bonham! What a guy. Knew him when he was fifteen…


17-Jun-1972 Memorial Coliseum  

Thank you. Thank you. Oh, we found out there are city regulations that the lights have got to stay on even if theres nobody in the building. We gonna sit down for a bit. This is something we didn't do three years ago, but, uh, we do it now. This would be a good time for you to sit down too. Well there you go; everybody's sittin' down, that's nice. It would also be really cool if, uh, if you could make as, as least noise as possible because, I don't know whether it's football season here yet, but, uh, it sounds very much like a Tidal wave. Right, if you've gotta be a little bit quieter than that 'cuz we've, uh, these things keep follow material what we're doing. This first song just talks about, um, Hollywood, San Francisco. Already I think it would be better … about the place. Or either ourselves. It's called 'Going to California.' Eventually, public toilets.


17-Jun-1972 Memorial Coliseum  

Thank you. This is a song which ah, came to us on top of the Welsh mountains one day. Seems to be far away from here.


17-Jun-1972 Memorial Coliseum  

But during, during that three years that we ain't been here we've been a lot of places. We've been to 'Tangerine.' It's around trees, bigger than Max Head. Ha ha. And, uh, this is one place that we nearly got to, and that was Camelot. This is a song that always ah, depicts that period to me, even when we were in the darkest hour. Some of these places that we end up are the darkest hour. Ha ha. With a red light burning in the middle of it. Right.


17-Jun-1972 Memorial Coliseum  

Here's one that you can all join in with. This is a song about ah, it's a song about a blue eyed dog. The best friend I've ever had.


17-Jun-1972 Memorial Coliseum  

Right. Here's one from a long long time ago.


17-Jun-1972 Memorial Coliseum  

Thank you. This is, uh, is, uh, here's a song of love.


17-Jun-1972 Memorial Coliseum  

Right now, losing pounds everyday, our one hundred and eighty pound wonder. John Henry Bonham, 'Moby Dick!'


17-Jun-1972 Memorial Coliseum  

John Bonham! John Bonham! John Bonham!. John Henry Bonham. (Ahhh, yes.)


17-Jun-1972 Memorial Coliseum  

Thank you very much and good night.


17-Jun-1972 Memorial Coliseum  

Goodnight. Thank you very much. And twice the wait for the lady who comes over there, she's on the game. Haa haa.


18-Jun-1972 Seattle Center Coliseum  

One, two. Right! Has everybody walked up yet? One, two. Where you come, then?


18-Jun-1972 Seattle Center Coliseum  

Thank you. Well, what can we say? Somebody tried to do a lot of damage in Vancouver, I believe. And, uh, breakin' doors down and all that old shit. It's pretty unfortunate, really, when we tried to stand for an alternative idea for the system that goes on now. We're all talkin' about love and peace and somebody's smashin' .... I don't really know the situation but I know that we couldn't go and see it. We couldn't even go across the border so, so anybody from Vancouver here? It's, well that's a nice one, that's a nice one. And we've always had such a good time there. Anyways, here's one for you. This is called 'Black Dog.'


18-Jun-1972 Seattle Center Coliseum  

Well. Let's try and protect. We're, uh, (….) Uh, this is something, uh, that we've grown very fond of. It's called 'Since I've Been Loving You.' You keep on calling, man. Well we got this, uh, we got this nightly occurance where apart from being, getting into trouble with Texas Rangers and not being allowed into Canada and things, the organ is always in a bad state so if you give us just two minutes to catch up with that. Right.


18-Jun-1972 Seattle Center Coliseum  

Thank you. Starting to loosen up a bit. Somebody told me we were gonna go fishing today and then we thought about all them people up there. Anyway, we won't say anything else about it. It was just. People keep doing that all around the world and nobody's gonna have any faith in the children of the sun, are they? Anyway, here's one, uh, haa haa haa haa. 'Stairway to Heaven.'


18-Jun-1972 Seattle Center Coliseum  

I think we'll sit down. Now we've reached our, uh, almost reached our fourth birthday. So we have to sit down and ask the, uh. I bet you can't even remember, does anybody remember the first time we ever came to Seattle or Vancouver? And, uh, sure, things have changed, haven't they? Ha ha ha. That's right , with the Vanilla Fudge. The drummer and the bass player are still going, still doing things. But that was then. This is a song about, uh, about California and all the different pleasures that we get up there. There's a lot of good there, and there's a lot of strange things there. Being English you see 'em quicker. We don't live with it. I think the people in the front ought to sit down so as the people in the back can see, and, uh, and, uh, please don't kick any policemen. If we're to get anywhere, it's no good. Keep 'em down. They don't even know what they're doing. California.


19-Jun-1972   Seattle Center Coliseum  

Thank you very much. Well, it'll just be a minute. This is a, this is a song that ah, when we were recording the fourth album, we recorded it in a, an old house in England that there were a lot of dogs around, and one of the dogs was so old that, despite him still liking to boogie a lot, he couldn't, he couldn't walk and boogie at the same time. So we used to have to help him along a bit, and he was a black dog.


19-Jun-1972   Seattle Center Coliseum  

Thank you. Well, we'd like to do something off ah, something we've never ever done before in fact, in front of people, and it's not one of ah, one of the fables either. This is a thing called The Ocean.


19-Jun-1972   Seattle Center Coliseum  

Yeah, well that's the first time. That's the first time. This is something a bit slower, a bit easier, a bit cooler. Since I've Been Loving You.


19-Jun-1972   Seattle Center Coliseum  

Thank you. Take your time, we got about three hours. This is a, this is a thing ah, called Stairway to Heaven.


19-Jun-1972   Seattle Center Coliseum  

We're gonna sit down for a bit. This is a song about impressions over about, we've been going now for about four years, right? Nearly four years, and we've been to the United States about eight or nine times. we've been to California as many times as , as we've been to America


19-Jun-1972   Seattle Center Coliseum  

Thank you. Here's a song that you must know pretty well. All parents are gonna join in the chorus, so that involves most of us.


19-Jun-1972   Seattle Center Coliseum  

We're not gonna do that one.


19-Jun-1972   Seattle Center Coliseum  

This is another sitting down song. You can stand up if you like. I don't mind. I don't think it needs any introduction. I usually do a five minute chat on everthing it makes me feel singing it, but we're off.


19-Jun-1972   Seattle Center Coliseum  

With the voices of John Bonham and John Paul Jones hiding behind some equipment. Now, for the guy, did somebody shout out Communication Breakdown in the middle of that? That is the, you got to notice that is the ultimate, that is the ultimate communication breakdown, that is. Far out. This is a song about a blue eyed dog who lives about five feet from me when I'm at home.


19-Jun-1972   Seattle Center Coliseum  

I tell you what, we're certainly enjoying this group better than last time. You nearly fell asleep last time we were here, didn't ya? Remember that? Far out man. Well, this is really a lot better. This is great. Last night we should have been in Vancouver, and I don't know whether you know what happened there, but a lot of kids got hairy, and kicked the doors down and everything. So we brought people from Vancouver down here instead, and we had a good time.


19-Jun-1972   Seattle Center Coliseum  

Oh, dear me. There's nothing like getting it on, is there? Here's a song of love.


19-Jun-1972   Seattle Center Coliseum  

Thank you. We got another new one we want to do, off the next album. Freshly rehearsed ah, about thirty minutes before you came here. This is a song about summer. It's called, it's called Dancing Days.


19-Jun-1972   Seattle Center Coliseum  

Well, that's the first time. That's the first time that we've ever done that. All being well, we've got to get this album out before the summer goes, otherwise it's like the past tense. That was Dancing Days. We've come over for about twenty two days, and


19-Jun-1972   Seattle Center Coliseum  

John Bonham. John Bonham. John Bonham. One hundred and sisty five pounds. John Bonham.


19-Jun-1972   Seattle Center Coliseum  

You've been too much, and we've had a good time. Thank you very much. Good night. I don't thing there's any band, any where in the world, who has as much fun as we do, and I think it rubs off onto you. Here's an old one.


19-Jun-1972   Seattle Center Coliseum  

Good evening. I said good evening.


19-Jun-1972   Seattle Center Coliseum  

Thank you. We got another new one we want to do, off the next album. Freshly rehearsed ah, about thirty minutes before you came here. This is a song about summer. It's called, it's called Dancing Days.


19-Jun-1972   Seattle Center Coliseum  

Good night. Good Night. Good night. Sweet dreams.


22-Jun-1972   Swing Auditorium  

Well, good evening. Contact. This is a song about ah, an old dog who used to boogie a lot, and he was too tired to make the journey there and back to see his little chick dog. This is called Black Dog.


22-Jun-1972   Swing Auditorium  

Thank you. Well, this is something a little slower. this is a song of distressed love. It's called Since I've Been Loving You.


22-Jun-1972   Swing Auditorium  

Well, here's one from the last album. Stairway to Heaven.


22-Jun-1972   Swing Auditorium  

Right now we're gonna sit down. This is a song about ah, experiences summed up in about five minutes. It's called Going to California, which I believe is somewhere near here.


22-Jun-1972   Swing Auditorium  

Sure enough, this is an old song.


22-Jun-1972   Swing Auditorium  

Right, here's another, that's what we're doing here. Here's a song about the good days, looking back to the good days.


22-Jun-1972   Swing Auditorium  

Well, what's that shrieking? Well, our PA is up to it's usual standards. We're gonna do something for everybody with a loud mouth in the audience. Yee hee. Our love's gonna grow. This features our premier vocalist, John Bonham. It's about a dog with blue eyes. A good dog.


22-Jun-1972   Swing Auditorium  

Thank you. Patience. This is one from a long long long long long time ago. He's just, he's just learning to play. He shan't be long.


22-Jun-1972   Swing Auditorium  

Gentlemen of the orchestra, a little more top on the PA. HEre's a song of love, and there's a song of greasy kid's stuff. Greasy kid's stuff, don't you think so? All those firecrackers, and all that other shit.


22-Jun-1972   Swing Auditorium  

right now, ladies and gentlemen, the moment you've all been waiting for, since this rodeo started man. Our precussionist, one hundred and sixty eight pounds. John Henry Bonham. Moby Dick. John Bonham.


22-Jun-1972   Swing Auditorium  

John Bonham. Let's hear it for John Bonham.


22-Jun-1972   Swing Auditorium  

Thank you very much, and good night. I have had my fun. It's nice to be back again.


22-Jun-1972   Swing Auditorium  

Good night. See ya.


25-Jun-1972   The Forum  

Good evening. Good evening. Yeah, it's been a long time again, but we finally saved up the airfare to get back. ah We'd like to try a number out off the new album. We haven't really decided what we're gonna do at the end of it yet, so you're gonna have to bear with us. This is a thing called Over the Hills and Far Away, which is always a good place to be.


25-Jun-1972   The Forum  

Well, the lyrics to that were quite Eeeee. This is one about a poor dog who, who really, let me tell you about this poor old dog cause he was a retriever in his early days, and the only thing he could find in his late days was his old lady who was living two houses away from where we were recording, and he used to go see his lady quite regularly, but after he'd boogie'ed and everything else, he couldn't get back, and we used to have to carry him back, and this has got nothing to do with a chick in Detroit. It was a Black Dog.


25-Jun-1972   The Forum  

Thank you. I think we're gonna have a good time, in fact I can't ever remember coming here when it's been bad actually. Here's ah, something that's a little bit easier.


25-Jun-1972   The Forum  

Yeah, here's one ah, this one came on a very enlightened evening. I think it was an alternative to going to London's version of the Whiskey a Go Go, or staying in and writing a song, and I just couldn't make that club. This is called Stairway to Heaven.


25-Jun-1972   The Forum  

We're gonna do our, listen, we're gonna do our best to sit down, and do some quiet things. If we can tell the gestapo to cool it a bit. If we can ah, you really can't sing songs like that when they're carting people out with little flash cameras, can ya? Anyway, let's not use it as an excuse to get fucking silly. Let's just cool it all togother. Well, not all together, for goddness sake. Anyway, we're gonna sit down cause ah, we've had four years standing up. I couldn't believe it actually. Anyway, this is a song which really could never really be finished. In fact, it must have part two, three, four, and so on. It's about experiences that you pick up on, over the years of coming to the United States. So really, there really should be quite a few parts to it, but ah, this is called Going to California, which is somewhere near here.


25-Jun-1972   The Forum  

Thank you. Here's one that you, here's one that you might have heard last time ah, so it's time to do it again.


25-Jun-1972   The Forum  

Here's a, why don't you stop shouting brother? We got a long time , we got a long long time to go yet, so ah, you ain't gonna believe this, but the best vibes on this tour so far, I mean, have been in strange places, and we've been known to play for twelve and a half hours, and then after that we went to the gig, and, sorry about that. Alright, this is another quiet song so shut up a bit. This is a , that's a clever move. What a clever move. This is a song that always brings to mind tranquility, and ah, the beauty of unspoiled county and King Arthur riding across the Glynn. This is where Bonham runs across the stage on a broomstick.


25-Jun-1972   The Forum  

Here's a noisy one. This is about a dog with blue eyes. He's a bit of a stinker. This is featuring the vocal refrain of Mr. John Bonham. At the beginning of the tour a spotlight used to swing on him, but I think that's out of action now. That's John Bonham, just behind those drums. Spotlight on Mr. Bonham. Sorry about the spotlight. Anyway, he's goona sing even if, there he, there he is. Johnny Bonham. Very nice to be back. Here's the one about that blue eyed dog, if you could help us.


25-Jun-1972   The Forum  

Name your price sugar. Good evening. Here's one from way way way way, a long long long long time ago.

Here's a song of love.


25-Jun-1972   The Forum  

Thank you. Here's a, a song off the new album, and it's not going to be called Led Zeppelin ah, how many have we done so far? It's not going to be called Led Zeppelin Five. It's got every possibility of being called Burn That Candle, but ah, this is a track from it. It's about summer time and good things. It's called Dancing Days.


25-Jun-1972   The Forum  

Well, our second vocalist is about to do his little thing. Our precussionist, the very regular, John Charles, John Charles Bonham. Moby Dick.

Here's one off the new album. It's called The Ocean.

Good evening. Nice one, noce one. This is a story about a, about a dog who liked to boogie. It's called Black Dog.


27-Jun-1972   Long Beach Arena  

Thank you. This is a, this is something I think we did once before, and that was the night before last. We played at the Forum, and that was too much. That was really great. This is a thing called Over the Hills and Far Away, which is a good place to be sometimes. I'll tell you what, we really must cut that out. I don't want to hear no more firecrackers cause that's not really no good. I mean, the Fourth of July's soon, but it's not now. It just breaks the continuity. Look at that. That's really clever. I mean really really clever, and the guy who did that really feels good, right? That's really clever. Alright, Over the Hills and Far Away, for the freak.


27-Jun-1972   Long Beach Arena  

Thank you. I think I better have some lemon and honey.


27-Jun-1972   Long Beach Arena  

Here's ah, something that I think will. ah It's called Stairway to Heaven.


27-Jun-1972   Long Beach Arena  

Good evening. Right, as you probably know, if you've ever been to a concert before, we've got to sit down cause a tight itinerary, a tight schedule, and all that, that we can't carry on too long standing up, and don't tell me you believe that. You know what? We thought we were going to see Muhammed Ali fight tonight, and ah, we were gonna say that we got caught up in the traffic. So we ain't gonna see him, but we'll have a really good time. Right, this is a song about um, 1968-1967, and a little bit of it'll rub off everytime. So, surely, this is gonna be Going to California.

Nice, old John Bonham was singing away on that, but he's hiding behind some equipment. When I first met him he used to sing and play the drums. Then he just played the drums, and was losing weight. Here's when anyone should put their hands together with some kind of good timing. Let's ah, let's just have a little look at John Bonham. There he is, with a microphone close to him. On the last album we did Remember it's only Make Believe, bu Conway Twitty. When he sang that we were gonna put in on the last album, but he paid enough money to keep it off.

Something so devoted could only be about a dog. Here's one from a long long long long long long time ago.


27-Jun-1972   Long Beach Arena  

Thank you. It seems ah, that every time we come to the state, we do something that you ain't heard before. You can't identify with it. Everyone sort of sits there going. This is one of those. This is off the new album, and ah, all being well we should have it out before the nights start drawing in because it's like a summery album really, and this is one of the songs from it. It's called Dancing Days.

03-Oct-1972   Budokan Hall  

Some old, some new. This is an old one which requires honorable Led Zeppelin to sit down cause we're getting old. I can hear, for those people who don't have a good sized understanding of the Welsh language ah, this is a song about a dog with blue eyes. What we need is a few more personell. I could tell you a joke. This ah, is quite an experiment for us really cause it features the rather sheltered transvestite vocal chords of John Bonham. Spotlight on Mr. Bonham. This was written in the seclusion of the Welsh mountains, or hills, in a house on the side of a mountain, dog barking. Just one moment gentlemen, and honorable ladies, and geishas, and old irons, and hookers, and everything else. It's alright, there's no need for that vibe.


03-Oct-1972   Budokan Hall  

Here is another new song. Good evening. This ah, last night it was called Zep, tonight we'll call it the overture. This is it.
