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)

I was 15 and recalling an event that took place 40+ years ago: Hot, humid NYC summer nite; crushing standing only venue with mixed aroma of pot & b.o.; was up in the front and consider this one of if not the best live show I ever saw....Plant wearing a see thru lacy shirt; vocals I didn't think possible; Page making his guitar also do things I didn't think possible; J. P. Jones steady bass; loved "How Many More Times" and his organ play on "Your Time is Gonna Come" still makes my hair stand on end to this day and seeing "Bonzo" up close just makes this concert a memory I will always cherish and pass on when I'm creakin' in my rocker recalling "the good old days"....long live ZEP!!!!!
