Notes:

Review: So Led Zeppelin know all the heavy tricks a freak psychedelic rock group has to know. Jimmy Page & Co. wowed the audience at Detroit’s Olympia with their expertise in the heavy idiom: Page in particular has a way of turning down his volume to a whisper, (but only for a moment at a time), that puts the crowd right on the edge of their seats. (P. Cain, Rock 10/70)

My intro to R&R

I was only eleven when Bill & Betty H asked my mom & pops if it was OK to take me to a concert. I took Donna N (neighborhood girl). The music I was listening to at that time was CKLW (pop station) and this was not CKLW. I was also listening to some of my older sisters 8 track tapes (without permission, of course) These included: Deep Purple, Credence, Traffic and others I can't remember. Nothing prepared me for the raw, live sound  Zep put into my head that night & I will always be profoundly gratefull to my chaperones for the evening I can't forget. 

By the way, absolutely no other bands that night...hey, I was eleven & likely the only one in the barn who wasn't stoned.
