Review:

Led Zeppelin blitzed the Guthrie Sunday evening. It revealed not just four players of extraordinary talent, but a group which understood that ensemble playing implies communication and mutual stimulation among its members.

It is the dialogue among the Zeppelin’s members that distinguishes the group. Pairs of players Sunday were constantly getting together in stage corners to establish musical conversations of exciting imaginativeness.

The concert’s repertory was varied and provocative. Page starred in (White Summer), there was irresistible speed and explosion in You Shook Me and there was anguish of a more traditional character in Babe I’m Gonna Leave You.

Perhaps the band’s best number was a slow powerful opus called Dazed and Confused. Zeppelin’s concert left not just that song’s protagonist but the entire audience stunned and dazzled. (P. Altman, MN Star Critic, May 1969)
