LZ at the Oakdale

I was there and it was fabulous!

 

Woodstock was all of the news that weekend, trumping news of the war, and I desperately wished I could have gone.  My mother would not let me go to Woodstock, especially after my sister's boyfriend said that there was going to br Hell's Angels there and all sorts of violence!  Haha!

 

The Oakdale was a more intimate venue, smaller with decent seating and a revolving stage.  I am not sure if it was sold out.  It seemed full but not overly crowded.  It was a hot night, just after a huge thunderstorm (lightning had stuck very close to where we driving!).  Led Zeppelin put on a hell of a show that night, but in between sets they seemed relaxed and natural, just like a bunch of friends hanging out.

 

I had already had their first album, but they were not yet very popular at the time  I was hoping I would see Jimmy Page play the guitar with a bow and I was not disappointed!  When it came time for Jimmy Page to play "Black Mountain Side", he pulled up an ordinary folding chair, sat down and started to play and what was memorable  was that his body barely moved, but all of this amazing music came out!  Everything that they played that night was great!

 

 

I was 17 then and they have remained my favorite band!
