Notes: 

Newspaper review: We want to give the fans a good kick, "said guitarist Jimmy Page of the rock group Led Zeppelin prior to the Germany tour, which led the well-paid quartet to Hamburg yesterday.

The music hall was completely sold out. The name Led Zeppelin has not lost its appeal despite the flattening pop wave. But towards the end of the concert, many fans left the hall prematurely. Because of the music of the group was not much to hear.

Tints subsided in the deafening noise. The phonetic level of Led Zeppelin music would have been enough for a 20,000-man stadium? In the relatively small music hall, the sound level was well above the pain threshold for most pieces.

Nevertheless, the youthful audience thanked each piece with much applause. Joyful applause greeted the first bars of every Led Zeppelin hit. After all, most of them, who sometimes kept their ears to it, knew the true sound of this music, at least from records. [hk / 3-73]

This show belongs to Page. The playing is overall fantastic through the whole show. Plant throws in a few shouts of Cold Sweat prior to San Francisco (and later before the Whole Lotta Love melodies). Bonham tries shifting into The Crunge during Dazed And Confused, but no one else follows his lead. Not to be denied his efforts, he then launches into a battle with Page. It progresses into an exchange not heard since Bring It On Home. Furthermore, at the end of the battle, Page plays the chords that would have lead back to Bring It On Home's main theme. A classic in a classic! The D'yer Mak'er part of Everybody Needs Somebody To Love amounts to nothing but a few "Oh"s from Plant but it's still great.
