The clip is edited and does not include the whole song, also features an unverified performance from Fillmore venue, go-go female dancer, background music from studio version of Whole Lotta Love and short snippets from above video. Comments: It remainded as a curiocity why the band decided to perform in television after as they were so dissapointed with "How Late It Is" show on March 21st, For sure the band didn't want Boston (CD) play it and this can be easily noticed, when Bonham just looking around dully while he's playing drums.
Only in Marchwhen Whole Lotta Love became popular in Germany, the Beat Club producers used the previously filmed material to produce a video clip using the commercially released version of Whole Lotta Love for the clip's audio portion. The originally recorded audio portions were not used. In the Spring of You Shook Me was found as another lip-sync performance. Bill Graham introduced all the acts. Source: Incomplete superb audience recording.
Almost 59 minutes. Details: The quality of this recording is so good that Led Zeppelin - A Sudden Attack many years it was incorrectly mentioned as a soundboard. The show is captured with two mics placed right on the stage. Every instrument is clear and balanced with Plant a bit behind the rest of the band. Reported to be stolen from Bill Graham vaults. Comments: We don't know if this recording comes from single ser or it's just a mix of both sets.
The sound is so good it has been often mistaken as a soundboard. In fact it comes from PA monitors. Halfway through the number, Jones' bass cabinet exploded and Plant ad-libed new lyrics: "I think we've got some trouble with our equipment, yeah I think we're gonna get it together, yeah I think we're gonna have a good time I think we'd better the right key! Almost 25 minutes.
Details: Tape is hissy and distant but fairly clear and enjoyable nonetheless. Plant's vocals at times are a bit drowned out. Comments: Sounding very similar to the tape from January 9th at Fillmore West, this tape from the band's second gig of their second visit to the city and their first performance at the Winterland Ballroomis much longer in length, being just under 25 minutes.
The taper was close to the stage, likely on the floor of the venue, and the resulting recording is a nice listen of an excellent performance. Cuts are present between all four songs, which masks the fact that there are almost certainly songs missing in-between these cuts. This is a given for the simple reason that Led Zeppelin - A Sudden Attack entire tape is less than half an hour long, yet it starts with Bill Graham introducing the band, and ends with Plant giving the audience a sincere farewell for the evening.
Whether or not the Graham introduction is from the beginning of the 1st set or the beginning of the 2nd set isn't known. But given Plant's farewell, we can assume that the taper was present from the start of at least one of the sets through to the end of the night, save for any additional encores the band may have done. Again, just like that January 9th Fillmore West tape, there is also confusion as to what the actual date of this recording is. And, again, the confusion here is caused by the words that Plant says to the audience.
If we hadn't have done well here I think we would've shitted ourselves and ran home. And you've done the same for us this time as you did last time. We'd like to say thank you very much, and good night. After those first two, the band played Vancouver and Spokane, with Portland said to have been played as well during that week. From there, in the first week of the new year, the band headed south to California for four nights at the Whisky in Hollywood, before heading up to the Fillmore West in San Francisco the following week.
So, unless this tape is from Seattle, Plant's words don't make sense. Thankfully, the mystery here is helped by the fact that this tape starts with that aforementioned introduction by Bill Graham: " In fact, so heavy, that even though we can never be entirely sure about these types of things, it pretty much settles the date.
During this era, Graham had yet to begin promoting concerts outside of his own venues in the Bay Area and New York. So, for his voice to appear on this tape immediately identifies San Francisco or New York as the location. However, the sound of Page's guitar on this tape matches with the echo-heavy and fuzzed-out sound he used in San Francisco in April.
By the time the band reached New York in May, Page will have gotten rid of that constant echo and fuzz sound, and will have switched over exclusively to his Les Paul. So, that's two points for this tape being from San Francisco. Not definitive proof, but pretty close. As for which day in San Francisco, April 26th and 27th are automatically out due to the fact that we already have complete recordings from both nights. As well, the first night back in town, April 24th, is also out, as that show starts with As Long As I Have You, which the band can be heard playing on this tape from April 25th.
Unlike shows at other venues on the tour, where the band played to separate audiences at separate early and late shows, at Fillmore West and Winterland, the band played to the same audience the entire night.
And during this period, we have no record of them repeating any songs within the same night at any of the other dates they played in town. Which ultimately asks the question as to why Plant would make such statement. The easiest answer probably being that he was merely being sentimental and appreciative to the audience. San Francisco was an important town for the band during this period. The gigs that the band gave there, especially during that week of April, are among the finest that they ever gave.
So, given that connection, what's wrong with a little white lie amongst friends? Even though the recording is so short and fragmentary, it is still a wonderful slice, highlighting a caliber of playing that is right up there with the other nights of the run.
Plant's voice is fantastic, in glorius high range, and Page's playing actually sounds even better than it would the next night. Hopefully, one day more of this tape will circulate if there indeed is any more. Details: The sound is clear for the most part, slightly muffled in places and the drums are a little in the background of the mix. The only drawback is that the recording is somewhat overloaded in places. Overall one of the better audience recordings for the era.
The concert itself is a pure magic. Everything that made Led Zeppelin an amazing live act is here and these two sets were so revolutionary in their time that even now, I am dumbstruck by the power and performance. Jimmy plays like a man possessed, hitting everything with such fluency and accuracy and with such emotion.
Bonham is thunderous, Jonesy is all over the place, inventing lead lines to counter Jimmy's, and Robert's voice is incredible, higher than any notes Jimmy can get on his guitar!
The power and performance are staggering. That aside, the song remains pretty much the same as the one we all know and love. During the middle section, Page doesn't use the theremin. The spot where it would be featured in the song instead features Bonham doing the same steady high-hat and clicking accompaniment that he would do on the album, but with Page doing a slide solo, sounding pretty much like the one he had just done a few songs earlier in Killing Floor.
After Bonham and Jones join in with a rushing beat and the song comes to a slow down, Page then plays some of the solo portions he had just played in As Long As I Have You. As Page keeps soloing, Jones jumps in with parts of the backing bass line from "You Shook Me", and then the band get into the formal return solo that would lead back to the main riff in the song. As the band crash in and the song heads towards the ending, Plant then repeats the line "Baby you need love" over and over.
And the song fades out. Details: The first set suffers from some form of distortion. All the instruments come through rather clear. There are portions that get a little muddy as the volume crashes into the recorder. Communication Breakdown has speed problems as well as few other parts. Source: Incomplete excellent professional preFM recording. Almost minutes. Details: The recording is a very good balanced professional board tape.
Source: Incomplete excellent professional FM recording. An incorrect song order here. DJ comments are included throughout. Comments: This show is just blistering.
The first set has the group firing on all cylinders and playing their hearts out. The second set is more bluesy and laid back, but that never means less enjoyable.
The only live version of Sittin' and Thinkin', a Buddy Guy number, is here and the completely different song list for each set make this a great show to have. Dazed And Confused is really dark here. The group's excitement to be so anticipated by Californian audience found their way in Plant ad-libbed lyrics of I Can't Quit You Baby: "I'm so glad you came tonight I don't want to leave you people Also some member of the audience is calling for You Shook Me, what makes a quick and quite funny response from Plant: "Right!
Don't worry by that! Just one before that! Initially the band planned to played two shows of which the second was cancelled.
The event was advertised as a "Light Show and Dance", and Angus Park Blues Band also got to play after them for the "dance" portion of the show. Original suuport was Spirit and Illinois Speed Press. After as the venue Boston (CD) changed, two new support acts were added: Sun Ra and Golden Earring. A local comedian performed in-between the two acts. Comedian Uncle Dirty opened the show. It is whispered that the show was cut by Who's crew because Led Zeppelin had have continued to play after the time.
Details: The tape is a bit distorted at times, but clear and enjoyable. Not as bad as we could think at all. Recording Includes: Backstage scenes. Cream is also on the reel, as well as one second long shots of Robert Plant and Roger Daltrey. Some copies are dubbed with existing audio, some others with official audio. Comments: This is only the encore for the show and all that exists from the show. It also happens to be the second time ever see April 26th, for the first time Whole Lotta Love was played live.
A very different version that is excellent, with a long guitar solo in the middle and great vocals from Robert. A very interesting comment about that evening comes from one of the Who's crew: "I had the unenviable task of throwing Zeppelin off the stage," recalled Jeff Wolff. Source: Almost complete fair to good audience recording. Almost 64 minutes. Details: The tape is overloaded and distorted at times, but the great performance makes it highly enjoyable. All the instruments are blurry in a steady noise, and because of that vocals are mostly obscured.
Comments: A short, intense and excellent show in front of a crowd who has fallen under Led Zeppelin's spell. Robert's voice is fantastic and the band plows through the set with intensity and fire and Dazed And Confused and How Many More Times have great performances from all four band members. Check out Jimmy's mind-blowing solo in You Shook Me This date had been previously scheduled for June 22, Also on the show in session were Marmalade and Vanity Fair.
This performance was originally commissioned for Dave Symond's "Symonds On Sunday" show, however Symonds was on holiday. Finally, the whole broadcast minus interview was released on BBC Sessions album in Comments: Another brilliant broadcast and a truly one of the best studio versions of Communication Breakdown with snippets of Just A Little Bit thrown in. The first one has similar guitar structure to the later used on Moby Dick instrumental intro while the second is a superb rendition to Eddie Cohtan's classic tune and Zeppelin's own hymn to one of their rock 'n' roll heroes.
The programme bill also bell boys pretending to be a rock group, jazz and variety acts, and a Salvation Army band. Aired on France television on September 5, Friday. There is unreleased footage in Boston (CD) archives, including beginning segement of Dazed And Confused and backstage.
Recording Includes: Communication Breakdown [ cut ]. Source: Complete 16mm color professional footage with actual sound. Details: The tape is an excellent television master, showing members rehearsing before the actual show.
Boom mic is used to record the audio. Source: Incomplete color professional TV broadcast with actual sound. Almost 12 minutes. Details: The tape is an excellent television multicam film and soundboard output is used for the audio.
The official DVD doesn't include the rehearsal but used some snippets of rehearsal footage to replace some shots from the original broadcast that had nothing to do with the performance. Likely more backstage footage and alternate concert footage including the first part of Dazed and Confused exists in the archives.
Comments: This is all that exists from this rather unexpected and fantastic raw performance. The group performed strong, short set but only Dazed And Confused and rehearsal and show versions of Communication Breakdown were recorded. After so much disappointent of broadcast the group never performed in television again.
This was the last ever Led Zeppelin TV performance. Details: A highly overloaded, distant and hissy tape makes this recording rather hard to listen. Bass is overloading the tape, vocals are distorted, guitar is hard to pick out. The band and the audience seem to be having a great time. Travelling Riverside Blues was first released as a part of Led Zeppelin box set and also used as a music background to the promo film under the same title during promotion campaign of Remasters set in late by Jimmy Page, mixed along with other miscellaneous scenes as well as brief parts of July The Song Remains The Same and Seattle July 17, pro shots.
Comments: Another studio session that needs no recommendation. During this short British tour the band was absolutely on peak form and it can be easily heard on this amazing recording. A fury, power and energy are present on all the tracks.
Whole Lotta Love is psychedelic stand-out and Robert's yelling during theramin battle is thrilling. A real pearl, Traveling Riverside Blues is Zeppelin's bow to the talent and magic of Robert Johnson and Plant sings some of his "lemon" lyrics. Also on the show in session was The Edgar Broughton Band.
Inalmost entire show was rebroadcasted. Source: Complete superb 1st professional pre-FM radio recording.
Source: Complete superb 2nd professional pre-FM radio recording. Details: The tape is an excellent edited radio master with almost entire chatter and banter between songs removed. Source: Complete superb 3rd professional pre-FM radio recording. Details: The tape is actually an excellent radio rebroadcast master. It excludes the Liverpool sketches and had extra DJ intro and outro. Comments: This show was recorded for the BBC to broadcast the entire show, and here it all is.
An incredible, compact, tight show that features some of the best playing ever, with Jones and Bonham shining throughout and quite possibly the best recording of Plant's voice ever. Add Jimmy's dazzling guitar work and you have a classic show. Details: Shot from various parts of the floor. The tape is hoarded and VHS copy is given to one person for personal use only.
Bootleg Visual Reference s :. Led Zeppelin email update. Rumoured to be professionally recorded. Details: A bit distant but exceptionally clear tape, with a significantly good instrument separation and fortunately, with no distortion. The drums are in the back a little but the quality level makes this recording one of better sounding from this tour. The rest of the show was supposedly achieved but erased by the taper.
Details: Shot from small distance, filmed in the front of actual stage. Because the band had the sunset time slot at this festival, the video is quite dark but enough clear to capture details.
Circulated also with audio dubbed from actual performance except for How Many More Times. Comments: Great show, with Plant hits his lungs out here. From the word go you can feel that they really want to make an impression on the big crowd. Sometimes you can hear the tension and the band Robert especially almost loose it by the end You Shook Me.
