Jimmy Page and Robert Plant are interviewed by J.J. Jackson on WBCN radio.
"The Tea Party was formerly a synagogue; the stage sat in front of what was once the altar. Out of reverence or love or just plain joy, the words “Praise Ye the Lord” were left on the altar wall and the celebration of togetherness buzzing through the room like current did the benediction justice. In its own funky way the Boston Tea Party and its counterparts around the country were houses of holy worship."
"The room was jammed, dancing impossible, the music so loud that ovations were as much relief as they were appreciation. Long fluid notes pealed from Jimmy Page’s guitar. John Bonham ripped into dazzling percussion acrobatics. John Paul Jones kept a bass line running through like a keel, stabilizing the music. Robert sang in an erotic howl and fans writhed with the changes in sound, interjecting hoots, groans, and whistles at each lull in the sound. The floor resounded with pounding feet when the set was over and the entire building shook rhythmically to its foundations. Three encores and they were still yelling for more. “Let’s give ’em another,” urged Robert backstage."
"The audience exploded in gratitude and approval. The group launched into a medley of Beatles and Rolling Stones songs to the crowd’s delight. They were ecstatic, insatiable, and merciless. But the concert was over, there was just nothing left."
"Exhaustion, elation, and pride were all over the faces of Led Zeppelin. They exchanged congratulatory looks. It was late, very late. They had to play New York the next evening, the Fillmore East, the last date before going home. Everyone knew it was going to be a letdown after tonight but it was the last date. After Saturday, home to England. Praise Ye the Lord." [Ellen Sander / Trips]
