Notes: 

Press Review (Translated) : Jimmy Page the highlight in Led Zeppelin

More than 30 minutes late, Led Zeppelin started the concert before a full crowd in Gothenburg’s concert hall. From the beginning they used the full volume from their 28 loudspeakers.  After warming up with two songs, they played a blues where guitarist and front man Jimmy Page showed his skills on the guitar.

With the help from a bow, he made the guitar sound like both a contrabass and a violin. Sitting on a chair, he played a beautiful raga inspired piece, the absolute highlight of the concert.

In “Heartbreaker” Led Zeppelin showed how coordinated they are with exact entries by John Paul Jones and John Bonham after a brake by Jimmy Page.

The drummer John Bonham showed his qualities in “Moby Dick”. Both with and without sticks he carried on for at least 10 minutes with a fantastic pounding on his arsenal of congas, bongos drums, gong gong and drums.

I missed John Paul Jones during the concert. He never had a chance to show what a great bass player he is. Above all, his organ drowned.

The singer Robert Plant was not able to get in the groove properly.

All the same, it was a display of musicality and Led Zeppelin richly deserves the publicity they have received during the last year.  [Aftonbladet 2/70]

Goteborg (or Göteborg as it is spelled in Swedish) and Gothenburg is the same town. Gothenburg is the English name. The consert was fantastic.

I saw this show and I still remember the feeling. It was a cold winter evening. There was some problems with the sound. and it took some time for the band to get started and into the move. Even so it is one of the best show I ever seen. My friends and I were sitting in the middle of the front row, we feelt really good about that.
