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]

zeppelin/who at merriweather 1969

Living in Baltimore, this concert was something my friends and I were not going to miss, although Led Zeppelin was still in its infancy. I'd been listening to their first LP for a few months, over and over again. There wasn't another band which played like that. But the prime reason for going to the show was The Who. they'd been around for a number of years and had proven themselves live and on record. I remember being blown away at Zeppelin's act--unpretentious with no frills, but played like madmen. I was even more hooked. And, then, to have The Who finish up the night (with a selection or two from their "upcoming" rock opera, Tommy) was something I'll never forget. When I tell folks about seeing both bands at the same show, they find it hard to believe, as I still do after all these years.
