A really raw and primitive show from early on; the playing is sheer inspiration and Robert's voice is throat tearing in the 2nd show especially. A classic early show when the band was young and every night was played with guts. This is also the earliest known live soundboard recording of Led Zeppelin and it's typical of the era, with the vocals and drums to the fore.

I believe you have your dates mixed up on the soundboard part, Argenteum. The sbd tape is from the night before, Jan 11. This night, the 12th, only has a pretty distorted audience tape. I would also disagree with you on this show having 'sheer inspiration'. I could easily think of 50 better Zep shows in 69 than this one (like Jan 10 - classic). Really one of the worst for that year, considering how high the bar was for that period.

However, I enjoy your comments and definitely appreciate your website!

I have to chip in here,They sound very relaxed and mellow on this show, no rush here, the How Many More Times is extraordinary!! Very close to the LP version, even doing the "I was a young man i couldn't Resist" section during the bow solo, afterwards they get very quiet, and Robert does a call-n-response scream with the crowd. Ilove this version- it's about 18 minutes long!
