Notes:

John Bonham's brother Mick recalled the show in his book "My Brother John":

"I watched the show perched on the stairs leading to the stage and as the performance reached its climax, Mick Hinton (John's stage assistant) came over and said that John wanted a pint of mild and wanted me to fetch it for him. When I returned from the bar, I was instructed to take it over to the side of the drum kit. I crouched down and tried to get there without being noticed... Like lightning, John grabbed my arm, pointed to a set of congas behind his kit and shouted 'play them'. Before I could reply, 'how?', the opening riff for Whole Lotta Love had kicked in. So there I was, stranded and thinking how not to look like a prat, so I started to play... As the number came to a close all I could think of was getting the hell off that stage, but John and Robert had other ideas, escorting me to the front of the stage to take a bow alongside Jimmy and John Paul... Although scared shitless, that night would remain one of the greatest memories of my life."

My first concert. I went

My first concert. I went with the lads from the band I was with at the time. Never been quiet the same since. Still got the stub. Saw them later at the Guild Hall and after a trip down the M6/1 with Polish smoked ham, crusty bread and butter, with a bottle of red, at one of the Earls Court gigs.
