Review excerpt: Led  Zeppelin – Wow, Led Zeppelin! Amazing!

What pain is in their music. Ecstasy can only come through this kind of pain and frenzy. And it isn’t just the energy and power of Robert Plant’s voice. The ecstasy inherent in The Doors is due for the most part to Jim Morrison, but with Led Zeppelin it’s all four of them; they all exude this tremendous energy force.

John Bonham, the drummer, is excellent. Most drum solos tend to fall into monotony quickly and become boring, but his was able to keep the listener constantly involved, feeling each rhythm throughout one’s whole body. Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones are also able to do this with their instruments. (ChicagoTribune, July ’69)

concert of all concerts!

not only did Zeppelin do their magic and blow the roof off, Savoy Brown and Jethro Tull were also magical. It was truly the concert of a lifetime. And at 59 yrs of age, I've been to hundreds of concerts, this one from my early youth (17) is still on the top of the list.
