Big Sound

At the top of their game here - big sound - well recorded, One of the things about the Mighty Zep - when you hear their songs - and I mean all of them - it's as if the songs already existed out in the ether before they were written and recorded. I mean, everytime I hear their music (and I go back to the beginning with this group - 1969) I think, "Of course, that's the way it had to be." They were, in effect, channeling this stuff through to get it into this world. That's the way it went down, the way it had to be, and the strange thing is - way back when it was happening a lot of us were sitting around thinking, "Man, this stuff is going to be with us until the end of time."

Back to this video clip - what a great concert. Decent recording. What a band.
