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]
