My first rock concert AND first time to see LZ

39 years on and I still remember this show as if it happen yesterday. I was invited by my neighbor to see this Led Zeppelin show because her boyfriend had to work and couldn't make it. So naturally I said yes. Seats were above the tunnel entrance were the band walked out and up the staircase to the stage. We had a clear side view of the stage closest to Jimmy Page. The crowd was very enthusiastic and firecrackers were lit occasionally. This show was subsequently bootlegged and appears on EVSD "Firecrackers and Explosions" as a fair audience recording. My best memories were of Jimmy Pages violin bow solo during Dazed and Confused. I remember some of the bow's strings were broke and rosin powder drifting in the air as he struck the Les Paul strings. The band introduced Stairway To Heaven as it was played for the first time in L.A.. I loved the acoustic set too and remember Page, Plant and Jones sitting in chairs strumming acoustic guitar and mandolin. And finally as the band left the stage after the last encore song: Organ Solo/Thank You, I reached down from my seat from above the tunnel and Robert Plant jumped up, gave me five and disappeared. The palm of my hand felt damp from the perspiration of his hand. Yes, I did wash my hands later! And to this day I am grateful to Vicki for the free ticket.
