Notes:

Press Review: Finally, good word: Led Zeppelin Bluesville.

Outside, a long as ten years of government line. A few minutes later, buttressed by a naturally painted Telecaster, long hair, Jimmy Page relives a moment the bygone era with the Yardbirds "Train Kept A-Rollin" (see "Blow Up") ... Quiet ephemeral ... Knobs turn and the sound quickly becomes unbearable. A small box and an antenna that generates an evil sound, this is the definition of "Sonic Wave". Distortion and wha-wha were not enough to Page and as a sculptor, he grips his hands in the air, thus producing the most intolerable frequencies. The pieces are linked together quickly and demonstrate mastery of each member of the group, thanks to its outstanding performance on stage, Robert Plant, the singer, "owns" the audience. If Led Zeppelin plays ten times stronger than the Yardbirds, the sound is similar. In that, it is primarily the group of Jimmy Page. Hopefully the Led Zeppelin will also be appreciated that the Yardbirds were in their time. [Rock & Folk, No. 29, 5/69 - by Bruno Ducourant]

I was there, following a

I was there, following a powerful recommendation. It was one of the most exciting gigs I ever attended. Jimmy Page was using some kind of effects box with an antenna. The audience were stunned and the atmosphere was electric. I had school the next day and ordered the first album on my way home, weeks before it was released, from Arcade Records in Hertford.

It was clear that Led Zep were destined to be enormous. I went back to the Cherry Tree a few times and saw Family and Chicken Shack, I recall. I was a great Family fan.
