Concert description

It was at these August 1971 concerts that manager Peter Grant agreed with the promoter Claude Nobs that the PA be piped outside the venue so those unfortunate enough not to get tickets could hear it. The speculation is that this recording was made from this source. But on with the show ... it is not often that Robert really puts the rest of the band into the shade, but on this show, with a few weeks of rock and roll behind him, he totally dominates with a stunning performance, His voice sounding as strong as you will ever hear him. Not that the band are not on form themselves - they are as powerful as you always believe they will be on a 1970 tape, with some new licks, possibly the first tryout of Celebration Day, a rare taster of Ramble On, plus Weekend as the encore.
