Review(s)
 
An excellent and surprisingly powerful show! Robert's voice is really strong and the band is really cooking right from the first few bars of Immigrant Song. The local swimming pool was tonight's arena of the show (also used as a dance hall in occasion). Prior to the date of the concert or dance, the pool was drained, and a complex wooden support structure was installed in its place, upon which panels of wood flooring would sit. So, not quite the danger was present at the venue as one might think but Plant was wary of that: "I don't know whether the 12-foot end's this one or that one. God help us! I'm sure you must have had a Town Hall! It's gonna be a silly night tonight. We'd like you all to feel at home. Just think of the drop beneath you and the drop that might come eventually!" Dazed And Confused has some really funky jam interludes led by Jones and Page and the end medley is excellent, with Plant's vocal prowess being showcased from the lowest crooning to the highest shrieking. The band also threw in some nice encores on this tour, with Eddie Cochran's Weekend getting aired three times, at Dundee, here in Ipswich, and in Bournemouth, with the latter show also featuring a cover of Jerry Lee Lewis' It'll Be Me. Perhaps the biggest surprise of the tour, however, is the aforementioned performance of Gallow's Pole at this show in Ipswich, being the first known performance of the song since Copenhagen in May 3rd that year.
