It's hard to believe it's been 34 years to the day that I saw this concert with my three best friends.This is the infamous "Blizzard" show at the Garden.The snow was no problem, because we took the Long Island Railroad into Penn Station.For $10.00,we sat in the old red seats, behind the stage in the first row, There was this sheer screen behind the band with the words "LED ZEPPELIN" lit up in bright lights.Our vantage point was much like the one in" The Song Remains the Same", when they open up with Rock and Roll and the lights first hit them.Anyway,there was Bonzo in his Clockwork Orange outfit driving the band with his usual power and glory. John playing bass and keyboards in his quiet and subdued manner.Robert was in great voice and spoke to the crowd with good humor.The worries about Jimmy's broken finger quickly disappeared as his playing was on the money.For a 15 year old kid from Long Island,this was an amazing experience! The one thing I still take away from this show was the power of it.It was loud,but crystal clear.On this night,as Mr.Page would say,they were "loosely tight."

HI YE ALL! FINALLY GOT A GOOD COMPUTER, AND I DECIDED TO VISIT WEB SIGHTS CLOSE TO MY HEART. THE LZ 2/12/75 SHOW IS ONE SUCH CLOSE THING. MY FRIEND NICKY CALLS ME A WEEK BEFORE THE CONCERT TO TELL ME THAT HE HAS A CONTACT IN THE PRINTING BUSINESS, THIS PERSON WORKED FOR THE PRINTERS IN NYC THAT PRINTED THE TICKETS FOR THE RUN OF SHOWS IN 1975 FOR LED ZEP AT MSG.
THIS PERSON, NOT A LZ FAN WANTS TO SELL 3 OF THE 4 TICKETS GIVEN TO HIM BY THE PRINTING HOUSE BECAUSE HE WORKED A 24 HOUR SHIFT TO COMPLETE THE TICKET ORDER FOR MSG. NICKEY TELLS ME THE EXPENSIVE NEWS, THE GUY THAT HAS THE FACE VALUE 7.50 TICKETS WANTS $75 EACH, ALMOST FORGOT THE TICKETS WERE FRONT! ROW! CENTER!
BOUGHT THE TICKETS, SAW THE SHOW AGREAT LIVE TAPE EXISTS OF THE SHOW, HAD TO BE TAPED BY SOMEONE WHO SAT FRONT ROW, DONT YOU THINK? ITS NICE TO LISTEN TO IT TIME TO TIME. ROCK ON ARTIE FOX

A great show! It may have been a blizzard outside but the Garden was rocking this night! "We came four blocks in the snow to get here ... you realise that? People were calling me on the telephone today and saying 'Is it gonna be on?' For a minute I was wondering about my anatomy, then I realised there was some discrepancy about the weather. Isn't it good though that it snows? Doesn't it change the vibe of the city? I think it's great!" The band is in excellent form and delivers a great show. Robert sounds good and strong, Jonesy and Bonzo are amazing as always, and Jimmy is incendiary tonight, especially at the end of Sick Again. He extends the solo in Over The Hills And Far Away to an incredible length and soars. No Quarter is dedicated to Jones that "...made Monthy Python's Flying Circus a flop in New York" tonight and his imppecably clean fingernails. Moby Dick is like a hurricane and Dazed And Confused just blows everybody out to the cosmic level! A bunch of heavy solid encores with an excellent Heartbreaker with some lyrics of Elvis Presley's That's Alright Mama thrown in closing this amazing eveing. This is definitely a triumph for the entire band and, not only a strong concert but also probably the best from the 1975 US Tour. "Ladies and gentlemen of New York ... you're too much ... and we ain't so bad ourselves!" and the show was over.

I sat with an obscured view behind the stage. As a result, I was able to see Ian Hunter walking around behind the stage.

I was there also, I have a bootleg cd of this show but, I have been trying to locate video's of this concert, so far no luck.

Hey that great sounding tape/cd/files out there is a soundboard recording actually. Meaning that the sound was recorded directly from the mixing board's audio output. That's why you don't hear too much audience except for really insanely loud cheers etc. Very dry & crystal clear.

This is one of the best bootlegs around as far as the quality goes! Just amazing sound quality resulting from a a great soundboard recording, not an audience member (though an audience recording does exist of this concert) but you know Peter Grant would have put someone in the front row in the hospital for recording hahaha. Such an awesome performance of Rain Song, Kashmir, and No Quarter. This concert is definitely in my top 5.

i wasn't there in 1975, I'm actually 19 years old, but it's one of my favorite concerts to listen to. I listen to Dazed and Confused all the time. It's so powerful. So heavy, and jimmy drives the song really wel with some interesting key changes and patterns. Amazing stuff really. I went to Madison Square Garden and did a tour. it's fully renovated now and I sat in those seats and thought about how amazing it must have been to be here February 12th, 1975. Or any night zeppelin played there. They have a small picture of Robert Plant there and it says "Led Zeppelin performed on July 27th, 1973; performing for their only live album "The Song Remains the Same". Interesting, because they have released 4 live albums, correct? But a mind blowing experience there. Love the Garden and all its Zeppelin glory!
