This one was a joy to do, children. Jan. 12, 1975 was the first show of Led Zeppelin’s 1975 tour (supporting Physical Graffiti), and there were some problems.
Jimmy Page had broken the ring finger on his left hand, and Robert Plant’s voice was ravaged from a flu. They modified their set list, removing Dazed and Confused, and added When The Levee Breaks, and Wanton Song to this show. When they got to America they would add How Many More Times to substitute for Dazed until Jimmy’s finger could handle it.
We listen to Levee and Wanton Song, and they’re awesome. Enjoy!
This is kind of a clip show. Some music is from the Jan 9th 1970 Royal Albert Hall Led Zeppelin show (not the songs that were officially released.) But since the rest of the recording HAS been officially released (on the DVD), I cannot share the recording. Sorry. Enjoy the show, though.
