Review(s)
 
BBC recording session, for John Peel's In Concert show on Radio One in front of a lucky crowd of 400. The group was originally booked on March 25th, but were forced to re-schedule due to Robert Plant experiencing throat problems. Originally broadcast: April 4th, 1971. "This is something we've waited for a long time on the Sunday repeated to Wednesday concert, and I know it's going to be well worth the wait. Would you welcome please Led Zeppelin!" John Peel announced the band. This is the famous BBC concert show that was released in 1997 legally. But here we have it 100% complete and unedited, and it is indeed a great, although not completely spectacular, show. Robert's voice is amazing, really showing no signs of the flu when he lost it the week before. Bonham is thunderous, Jones plays some of the best and heaviest-sounding bass I have ever heard and Jimmy is on top form. But there's a nervousness that adds a little tension to the show, most likely due to the studio atmosphere. The version of Black Dog is great and gutsy, and the one-two opening punch of Immigrant Song into Heartbreaker is very powerful. One of the best versions of Since I've Been Loving You I have ever heard, with Robert's vocals being the absolute stunner. The versions of Dazed And Confused and Whole Lotta Love are also spectacular. Just before the Whole Lotta Love, John Peel back for the introduction: "I'm going to sing on the next one" he jokes with Robert, who also made reference to Ray Steven's hit Bridget The Midget.
