I can only say, this presented music in a way I had never heard before. They were the opening band and after hearing there performance I really didn't care if I stayed for the fudge.

The Zeppelin definitely opened strong, however I was, and still am an avid Fudge fan. This was probably second or third time I had seen the Fudge. Loved the "Break Song", and always nice to hear "People Get Ready".

Went to this concert to see Vanilla Fudge, had not even heard of Led Zep at the time. This was probably the best, most impressive concert I"ve been to in my entire life. When they played, how many more times and, Dazed and confused, we were completly blown away. I remember Jimmy Page using a Violin bow on his guitar during the concert........ simply amazing!

I was 17 and there to see the headliner, Vanilla Fudge.  Had front row seats, bellbottom pants and a pretty blond companion.

Zep was the opening act.  Yea yea, move along.  The guitarplayer was with the Yardbirds?  OK, I'll watch.  

Hey! Waitaminit.The singer is barefoot and it's ten degrees outside! What's he on and where can I get some?  And just look at all that hair!  

Good spin on classic blues.  Awesome guitar he sometimes played with a bow.  Call and answer between voice and guitar.  I'm going to watch this band, they're going places.

A group of use made it from Camas WA through an ice storm to the concert.[before the Glenn Jackson Bridge] When we arrived we were told we could sit anywhere we liked. Jimmy set that stage on fire...will never forget that performance.
