(Vanilla Fudge support act)

News Report:  From the first organ note by Vanilla Fudge to the last wail of a Led Zeppelin guitar, hard rock and blues fans were treated to one of the most exciting shows ever performed in Albuquerque.

Before it was over late Saturday night, much of the audience was dancing in the aisles, on the chairs or near the stage where Jimmy Page’s guitar and Robert Plant voice were screaming the blues of Led Zeppelin.

Most selections performed by the England-based Led Zeppelin were from its first album on Atlantic. Their second LP release on the same label is due soon.

They started with “Can’t Quit You Babe” and moved next into probably their most popular song, Dazed and Confused.

Plant and Page, one of the premier blues guitarists in the world stole the show.  Rod Geer - Albuquerque Tribune – 8/4/69

I was at the 1969 Albquerque Led Zeppelin Concert

I was at the 1969 Albquerque Led Zeppelin Concert. At that time I felt sorry for Vanilla Fudge. They had one popular song called "Keep me hangin on"but between Fudge's songs the crowd chanted for Zeppelin to come out. Zeppelin only had their first album at that time but as I think music history will show that album was their best album.
Ticket went on sale through mail order at first but I was the first one in line for tickets when they went on sale at the local record store. I got into the ninth row. All the mail order tickets sat in front of me. That will always be a regret of mine. The concert was surrealiticly fantastic. I still have dreams on occasion about getting closer to the stage than I was. The songs Zeppelin played were better than the album which was an acheivement in itself. After the concert was over people just stood in the isles in awe of what sounds had just been played out. Thanks for the memories boys.
