Electric Magic

At this point I'd seen so many acts by the big stars of the 70s -- Kiss, Queen, Elton John, Floyd, Bowie, and was in the process of becoming a Zeppelin fanatic. I remember this concert out of several that I saw by them as being a masterpiece show. From the first D chord of The Song Remains the Same you could feel that both the band and the audience were at a peak state of ecstasy and energy. I have never seen anything like this -- the complete abandon of the crowd; the band's pacing -- heating things up and taking the recorded versions of the songs to new edges; slowing it down again; then really heating things up. There was a sense of a massive hypnosis of 20,000 people in this unity of raw emotion as the oceans of Zeppelin's music washed over us. The encore of the show was a rapid version of Rock and Roll with a surprise segue into Heartbreaker. Here the audience went totally bezerk. It seemed that he had given everything a band could, and then suddenly they pushed it further. I remember Page holding his Les Paul jacked above his head as he fingered the beautiful tentative pull offs of the solo and as he approached the side of the stage the sense of electric energy turning into hysteria was palpable. After this finale as the lights came on it was as if the 20000 people were totally wrung out, satisfied, blissful. No other rock and roll band has ever approached their Wagnerian power. Please guys, reunite!! We want to see you again!
