It was so packed - and so intimate - that I had to give JP my chair to sit down for Black Mountain Side.

I had just taken over the DJ slot at Farx from Andy Dunkley although he came down to do guest slots as he was quite well known on the circuit by then, so it is his name on the bill not mine, my mate Brian did the lights. What a night it was packed couldn't get another person in, so much for health and safety, wouldn't happen nowdays shame.

I was there right next to Jimmy Page,we could not believe they were there after having seen them at their debut gig at the marquee.Robert Plants comment about the stage being so small that they would nt get a 10 piece soul band on there.A great night in a small intimat venue

I was there too on that amazing night, as u said,it was packed solid and I was standing on the window cill at the back so had an excellent view.
I remember the entrance fee was 8 shillings and sixpence which was a bob more than the average gig there. Memories none of us will ever forget im sure.

Even in their very early days, it struck the west London rock community as extraordinary that Led Zep would play a club as small as Farx. There was considerable suspicion that this was some kind of con trick and great relief when the band actually appeared. I can vouch for the overcrowding: it meant a lot more happy fans than H&S would approve, and thank goodness there was no fire.
