Review: Led Zeppelin came on in a tumult of fury, and managed to keep their storm going throughout the entire, very long set. Moving about like some deranged whirling phantom, Robert Plant stormed at his audience in a barrage of vocal and physical assaults, his body writhing with the grinding tones of lead guitarist Jimmy Page’s playing.

Page’s style , with all its fury and passion, was an excellent complement to (previous act) Larry Coyrell’s and provided an excellent study in different approaches to the same instrument. At one point, Page played his guitar with a violin bow, and in addition to being a great gimmick and fabulous showmanship, it created a unique, very exciting sound. (B.H., Cashbox, Sept. ‘69)

1969 Flushing Meadow

I was at one of the 2 nights can't remember which. Jeez, it's been almost 40 years. I lived in Bayside, a bus & train ride away so I went to many of the shows here. Mostly without tickets, and either snuck in or stayed outside and listened. All I can remember specifically was that Iron Butterfly played about a month after Led Zep. This was my one and only Led Zep show.
