Press Review: Anaheim Crowd Wild Over Led Zeppelin “Noise”

Orange County was overflowing with teeny-boppers Aug. 9, as Led Zeppelin and Jethro Tull performed at the Anaheim Convention Center. The crowd went wild over Led Zeppelin’s noise, but I preferred Jethro Tull’s music.

Led Zeppelin, led by the shrieking of Robert Plant, had in it three very fine musicians. Drummer John Bonham performed one of the best solos I have ever heard, and lead guitarist Jimmy Page played excellently. On bass guitar was John Paul Jones. However, Plant’s singing detracted from any musical effect the group had. He simply mimicked the lead guitar with his voice… every entertaining. But the crowd loved it, not permitting the group to leave until they had completed a half-hour encore.

Instrumentally, the group was excellent, playing together to produce a very good sound. As if the lead singer had nothing else to do, he would get into the act with mind-blowing howl. [M.Gindes, Aug. 1969]

Jethro Tull and Led Zeppelin together!

Jethro Tull was by far the better and more memorable act. I went to see Led Zeppelin and have little recollection of their music. I had never heard of Jethro Tull but I can still recall the sound. The next day I went to the beach in Laguna and stopped into Mystic Arts World and they were playing 'This Was'. I no longer listen to my Zeppelin records and turn the station when they come on the radio. Not so with Jethro Tull. Their music stands the test of time much better even though they never made the money Zeppelin did.
