Press Review:  At the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD, on Sunday night, comedian Uncle Dirty, Led Zeppelin and The Who performed to a packed hall, field and parking lot.

Led Zeppelin played a fairly orthodox show, mostly using material off their first album. And although guitarist Jimmy Page once again proved himself a fine musician, there wasn’t much more to be said about the act as a whole. He and singer Robert Plant launched into innumerable transgressions of tonal question-answer games, more conducive to boredom than musically induced languor.[R. Cowan]

A Piece of Zep History in my Home Town!

I love this!! I've lived a few miles from Merriweather most of my life, and I still get a thrill when I see this flyer. I'd give anything to have been a fly on the wall when Jimmy rided Pete over the fact that because The Who smashed their equipment night after night, they made less money than a non-headline act like Zeppelin. Sounds logical to me! (n.b.: this is the only story I believe about Jimmy from Richard Cole's book.)
