Midnight Moonlight

An audience tape that has been found from this show includes the first (recorded) chords of a song published over a decade later: Midnight Moonlight, and some other experimental chords within White Summer/ Black Mountainside. Sadly the audience was not at all familiar with Led Zeppelin shows (how could they be as this was their first-and-last show in Finland) and started to demand for Whole Lotta Love immediately after the first applause break. The band was clearly very up-front, unfortunately it also seems that Plant was suffering from some PA problems or Bonham and Page just were on so loud that not much else could be heard at some points of the concert. They played some unusual songs in the Whole Lotta Love meddley and the response was great for this, at the time no. 1 hit. Excellent show, but for the Finnish fans disappointment Zeppelin would not stop by in Helsnki or elsewhere in Finland during their next European tour, or the next one, or even the biggest one in 1973. For late 1975 there was a scedhuled show, but that was cancelled like the whole tour after Robert's accident. He returned to Finland the next time for a blues festival in 1999 which was the first time I saw him live. On Dec. 6th 2007 Jason Bonham was supposed to play with Foreigner on this same stage where his father had given an unforgettable performance 37 years earlier, but he had bigger things to rehearse for in London. BTW this was Foreigner's firsrt ever gig in Finland.
