Jimmy Page: "At this point in 1968, I was living in my house in Pangbourne, West Berkshire. For some time prior to that, I had lived in Epsom in Surrey (when this location was called Ewell Technical College) and I had attended a handful of chemistry lessons at night school back in the day. This show was a good chance to catch up with some of my old pals from Epsom."

This gig was overshadowed by something greater

Hard to believe but on this very same day Frank Zappa performed on one of his rare concerts in London, at the Royal Festival Hall.

Now FZ was, at the time, far more popular than the newly-named Led Zeppelin. So this very unique and historical event of LZ was unfortunately completely overshadowed by a visiting American artist.

This might explain, why there are so little (or none!?) contemporary documents on LZ's very first gig ever.
