Review excerpt:

Zeppelin created more frenzy at the Forum than any group I’ve seen since the Stones’ appearance last year. At the end of the evening, hundreds had pushed their way into the aisles near the stage and thousands of others were standing in rhythm to the music.

The concert, which had been sold out for weeks, showed that Led Zeppelin is largely trying to recreate the sounds that have dominated English blues-rock in recent years.

Appearing without any support act, the group was onstage from 8:45 to 11:15pm. Like the Stones, they have a gyrating lead singer in Robert Plant and their best received songs have bawdy, under-the-counter lyrics. (LA Times, March 1970)

Recently returned from Nam...

Recently returned from Nam, all my friends were talking about the hot new group Led Zeppelin. All it took was hearing the way they layed down the classic blues songs like "Since I've Been Loving You" to make me a life long fan.

The concert at the Forum in LA on March 27, !970 was the only oppertunity I've had to see them live, but I've always said with pride that I was there and that it was the first official date with my wife of 32 years. I put this concert right up there with my attendance at the farewell performance of Cream tour and the 1967 tour of Pink Floyd.

If there is any hope in the world of getting tickets to the possible tour later this year or so, I'll for sure be trying my best. Congrats on the reunion on 12-10-08! Your in the love of great music, John Kayser
