Press Review: Any thoughts of Led Zeppelin’s stamina giving out at the King’s Theatre, Edinburgh, on Sunday, on what was the second last gig of their exhausting two month British tour, were promptly dispelled before a full and running-over fanatical crowd of 1,472.

The band flexed their muscles with Black Dog and two and a half hours later were still bombarding their audience with Heartbreaker and Thank You for encores.

Most of the stuff was familiar. Nothing from Jimmy Page was more dynamic than Dazed & Confused, where his bowed work held the faithful spellbound.
Stairway to Heaven was one of Robert Plant’s frequent triumphs and John Bonham’s percussive heroics throughout held everything in place.

The tastes of things to come on the band’s fifth album were The Song Remains the Same, Rain Song and Dancing Days. John Paul Jones’ keyboard work provided an effective symphonic background to Rain Song but for a total impact with this audience nothing popped Page’s athletics on guitar – even when he sat down for Bron-Y-Aur Stomp, shared country style with Plant and sounding almost naïve compared with the mind-blowing volume of the rest of the programme. (J.Anderson | Jan. ‘73)

Another excellent show, although still very incomplete. The most interesting thing on this tape is again another version of Dazed And Confused, with some brilliant guitar passages, just before as the band reaches San Francisco theme.

I remember bunking off school and waiting in a long queue for a ticket. The tickets I recall went on sale with very little notice.
It is still the loudest concert I have ever attended and after all these years I still think their songs stand the test of time.
