Led Zeppelin, Manchester Student Union, march 19, 1971

I was there in the student union hall for that one and only time I saw them.  I was in my first year at Manchester University, studying Pharmacy and living with a gang of friends in Whalley Range.  The Hall is/was not large, but completely filled with standing room only and everyone packed like sardines.  Although it was March, the room was getting very hot as they played - incredible music as they went through their portfolio - communication breakdown to stairway to heaven.  I recall moving towards the large windows at the side of the hall and climbing onto the large window sill to get a great view above the crowd.  I also recall a really cute looking girl across the room indicating to me to open the window to get some cool fresh air in the hall (which, of course, I obliged, and never saw her again... I was 18, so the fantasies were rushing through my brain!).  I recall looking at the crowd from my perch and it was, of the times, lots of hair, afghan coats, bell bottoms, tie dye, sneakers, dope, everyone just loosing themselves in the sound, page with the bow on strings and Plant - Mr. Erotic.  Just amazing memory - and one of a million from that era in Manchester.
