Led Zeppelin Atlanta Stadium Concert 5-4-73

I saw Led Zeppelin in July 1969 at the 1st Atlanta Pop Festival and they were great. This concert disappointed me as Jimmy Page sounded like he was playing with two left hands. His solo runs were very rough and had alot of technical errors. I read in a magazine article later that he had broken the ring finger on his fretting left hand when he slammed a train door on his fingers a week before. I guess in all fairness Page still played better with one broken finger than 99% of all guitar players do with ten good fingers.
