The last show of the first leg of the 1973 US Tour features the best show from 1973. Robert is in incredible voice, John Paul is amazing as always, Bonham is thunderous and grooves and Jimmy, despite a sprained left finger (?!) is as amazing as ever! "You shouldn't have been here tonight and we should have been in England! As you know, the concert you originally had to come to was cancelled because of Jimmy's finger. Now, this finger is very susceptible to strain and ligament pulling. Jimmy's had his finger in a bucket of cold water offstage, completely, the whole of the time since the concert was cancelled. I think he's doing really well and that's a fact. It's no fun." said Plant before Stairway To Heaven. This entire show is unreal, with the 30 minutes of Dazed And Confused and 20 minutes of Whole Lotta Love standing out among all of the improvisations. Since I've Been Loving You is one of the most emotional and best versions ever played, bested only by the version played here on June 25th, 1972.
