Review(s)
 
Afternoon show is a strong performance. Before What Is And What Should Never Be Plant paid tribute to Jimi Hendrix who died only one day earlier in London: "I think it's really hard ever having to say something about something that's quite a delicate point. But yesterday something happened - 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 a real shame ... Jimi Hendrix!" Immigrant Song is playing with fury and led into very heavy version of Heartbreaker. Dazed And Confused follows that and it's another good version. A bit strange organ solo and dramatic Thank You making this show interesting and Bonham's high energetic drum solo is very inspired. The Whole Lotta Love medley and aggressive Communication Breakdown closed this show but it's nothing when compared to the evening set. This one is a great audience recording for this era of technology, and of Zep live, pleasure to listen to. The performance is definitely a best-of-1970, at outset seems to take a while to get going ... there are some crowd issues, Plant improvises a "sit down, sit down" lyric for the 1st verse of Dazed And Confused. Bring It On Home is really intense and from this point the band seems to have "won the audience over". Since I've Been Loving You has some unique ensemble improve and a great guitar solo. Jonesy is really stretching out in his organ solo, with what sounds like pitch-bending/shifting and the crowd seems to enjoy it. This show's utterly unique Whole Lotta Love does make it a strong "holy grail" candidate - it even briefly includes The Train Kept A Rollin’. Before as song starts, Plant says: “What we want to do is try to choose a good number to go on with.” Out On The Tiles is a raved-up "rhythm move along" version and the last time when they performed it live! Communication Breakdown includes Gallows Pole verses. Spontaneous Girl Can't Help It, Talking 'Bout You and Twenty Flight Rock encore medley is priceless and we're lucky to have it captured on tape. The band want to keep ensuring that their audience has a good time, so How Many More Times includes another excellent medley of odd tunes. What could we ask for more?
