Review(s)
 
Playing to an audience ranging from babes-in-arms to the "over thirty generation", Led Zeppelin put wings on Dorton Arena and piloted the audience on a musical tour from blues, to jazz, to boogie, to pure hard rock. The performance had a very slow start. After waiting more than 45 minutes for the show to begin, the patient audience was rewarded with five minutes of ear-splitting feed back. In order to avoid the echo within the arena, which Jimi Hendrix encountered recently, the performers had to present their music at their maximum volume. Because of this, the audience had to adjust to the powerful beat of sound. However, anyone who arrived for the performance with a negative point of view had to be somewhat persuaded by the audience's acceptance of the reverberating sound. As in most rock concerts, each performer gave his solo. Unlike most rock concerts, the audience spent a great portion of the show saluting the solos in standing ovations. Undoubtedly, anyone who refuses to listen to any music on his own phonograph above one-half volume, would not have lasted 30 minutes in the arena; but those who know how to listen to the rock and jazz of today were the ones who would not let the performers quit. If this show is an example of how the music of today will be accepted in Raleigh, we can expect to see many more concerts of this type in the future. The reaction of the audience at last night's performance said so.
