has to be the loudest and best concert I have ever been at, about 10 rows back and remember being blown away by Whole Lotta Love medley, not something that you could ever or would want to forget!!

It seems like light years ago and it was the loudest band I had heard at the time. I had a pocket tape recorder and I taped the show. It actually sounded pretty good, wish I still had it. What a bargain for 60 pence. Its a shame bands arn't affordable now. Saw Zep a couple years ago in Washington DC and they sounded as good as I remember. Neat site, great memories. Thanks

The sound is very good with a little emphasis on the bass, which makes it all the more enjoyable to listen to. The band is just so on here, delivering one memorable song after another. The rhythm section is unstoppable, Jimmy is simply out of this world and Robert's voice is at its peak, letting blood curdling shrieks and power loose in Since I've Been Loving You and other numbers while lending a delicate touch to Stairway To Heaven and the beautifully intimate acoustic segment. Plant is started having a cold and he explains: "Gosh. I think I got that flu that's going about. I was in bed 'til half past six, and it's nice to be back ... I dunno, where are we? In Manchester. Manchester, right! It's good to be back." Dazed And Confused is immensely long, excellent, and even includes a funky jam on the theme from Shaft!

Saw them at the Free Trade Hall in 1971.
Amazing concert. We sat in the middle of the second row from the front. Our tickets cost todays price of 75p.

I also saw the zep live at the FTH in'71, I was a 17 and 3/4 old rock freak and still am, fantastic night, page on stairway to heaven was just brilliant as was the rest of the gig, think I paid 60p, probably pay £600 these days
