Concert description

The last show of the 1971 Japan tour is a tour de force! The energy and virtuosity are unbelievable, and Robert's voice is amazing, sustaining all of his high range notes and going low ... a most commanding vocal performance. "We spent two weeks in wonderful, glorious Japan which has been incredible. Great hotels, great bars, great people and without giving you any bullshit, this is our last night in Japan and we're gonna have a good time and I think you will!" said Plant during the show. Dazed And Confused is very long and includes some great jams in the middle, including Pennies From Heaven! Stairway To Heaven has a great solo from Jimmy, Celebration Day is fast and furious and this may be the best acoustic set I have ever heard! That's The Way, Going To California, and Tangerine all have amazing improvs within them, especially from Jones on the mandolin. Friends has it sonly live premier here too! Moby Dick is inventive and neat and Whole Lotta Love features some obscure and great references, and Robert is a joy to listen to. The encores are wonderful too, including a throat-tearing rendition of Rock And Roll (still untitled).
