Fillmore East Feb 1st Early Show

I was at the Early show that night. As mentioned, Robert Plant came out and said tha bass guitar was left behind at the hotel. Page came out sat on a stool and played White Summer and Black Mountainside. My friend and I were thrilled at this unexpected treat. We had been Yardbird fans and knew White Summer. I have to say at the time. we thought the "bass back at the hotel" story was false. They were on the bill with Porters Popular Preachers, and Iron Butterfly. I'm sure they could have borrowed a bass. But who cares, It was a great surprise to hear these acoustic songs.

When the whole band hit the stage storming they opened with Train Kept a Rollin'. Another blast because it was a Yardbirds tune. The rest of the show was spectacular. Page and Plant doing the call and response, the violin bow, it was all so new. The entire audience were right there at the point where the riff comes back in at the end of How Many More Times. A big yell from everyone, and right on cue. A true Fillmore moment. We were there to see Zep, not Iron Butterfly. The crowd went wild at the end of the set calling for more. This was Zep's night. They stole the night from Butterfly.

I still have my stub and program too!
