Concert description

A really good, but uptight and confused gig. The show starts with an announcement from Robert Plant: "We're sorry about the delay but because we're all a bit stupid, we forgot the bass player's guitar! Would you believe that! So we're gonna open up without the bass player. We're gonna feature Jimmy Page. This is a thing that was very popular when he was with The Yardbirds." After a nice early version the band breaks into an extremely powerful The Train Kept A Rollin'. Then the show starts properly and is excellent, except they forget to play Dazed And Confused before the last song ... so they insert it in the middle of How Many More Times! A blistering show where the audience's reaction would mirror mine were I there: "Who gives a shit about the Butterfly?" This was an opening slot for Iron Butterfly ... and indeed who does give a shit?
