One best concerts of my life

My teen years friend Wes Eaton was always reading rock magazines and had followed Jimmy Page's career. He introduced our group of friends to Led Zeppelin and alerted us of this concert. To say it was fantastic luck to have attended this concert would be an understatement. They played most of their first album plus "Whole Lotta Love" which we had never heard. (Maybe other songs too, but hey, that was 43 years ago) Can you imagine hearing "Whole Lotta Love" for the first time live when Zeppelin was playing their asses off for their first American tour? Simply stunning. It's really hard to put this concert into words. Sadly for the other bands on the tour, Zeppelin kind of blew them away and we left shortly after Vanilla Fudge started to play. I recall others doing the same. We had just had a religious experience and didn't want to spoil the memory of what we had just witnessed. History was being made and even then we knew it. We had expected Jimmy Page to be stellar and he was that and more but it was Robert Plant, to me, who was the real stand out. He was young and absolutely vibrant. His voice was so strong it blew everyone away. He was wearing electric blue pants, electric hair and was so super animated you couldn't take your eyes off of him. To this day I have never witnessed a vocal performance that could top that one. Thank you Wes Eaton, wherever you are, for steering me to one of the greatest concerts of all times.
