What show or live song are you listening to now?

Recommended Posts

June 19, 1972 - Seattle -- One of their very best shows ever--I'd say it's in the top 5, along with 9/19/70 (Evening), 9/29/71, and some other two.  Features the debuts of "The Ocean" (only time it wasn't an encore song), "Black Country Woman" (the only full-length live performance of it, and the only non-'77 performance), "Dancing Days" (twice) and "Over The Hills And Far Away" (only time as an encore).  Jones' organ solo includes "Amazing Grace" and "Everyday People," before the rest of the band join in for "Louie Louie" and "Let's Dance," then finally into "Thank You".  

The three epics are all long and great, even with the cuts in the tape during each; "Dazed And Confused" (28 min, maybe 1-2 min cut) features some really unique bits that I haven't heard in other versions, "Moby Dick" (20 min, could be as much as 5+ min cut, who knows) is excellent, and "Whole Lotta Love" (26.5 min, probably 2.5 min cut) features what I'm pretty sure is the only time they covered "Only The Lonely," as well as the occasionally played "Heartbreak Hotel," in addition to the usual suspects for the U.S. '72 medleys.  The short songs are all performed fantastically as well.  One of the best acoustic sets of all time as well, right up there with 9/29/71 & 6/27/77.

For those who don't have it, setlist:

1.     Immigrant Song

2.     Heartbreaker

3.     Black Dog

4.     The Ocean*

5.     Since I've Been Loving You

6.     Stairway To Heaven

7.     Going To California

8.     Black Country Woman*

9.     That's The Way

10.   Tangerine

11.   Bron-Y-Aur Stomp

12.   Dazed And Confused

13.   What Is And What Should Never Be

14.   Dancing Days*

15.   Moby Dick

16.   Whole Lotta Love (incl. Boogie Chillen, Let's Have A Party, Hello Mary Lou, Only The Lonely, Heartbreak Hotel & Goin' Down Slow)

17.   Rock And Roll

18.   Organ Solo (incl. Amazing Grace, Everyday People, Louie Louie & Let's Dance)

19.   Thank You

20.   Money (That's What I Want)

21.   Over The Hills And Far Away*

22.   Dancing Days

* = live debut

Setlist: 10/10

Performance: 10/10

Sound Quality: 5/10 (am I being too generous?)

It's a terrible shame that this is the only recording we have of such an unbelievable, all-time great show.  I wouldn't usually bother with sound quality like this, but this performance is way too good to let sound quality stand in the way.

41 Years Gone.  Most exciting OTHAFA solo ever.  Jimmy blasts off and extends it into outer space further than any other version I've heard.

Plant's introduction or the "Out On The Tiles" riff intro?  Either way, both are great!  I actually noticed some really cool stuff Bonham does during the intro for the first time today; haven't heard him do it on any other versions.

Not sure which is worse:  that horrid bass, or Page's terrible playing.  Sorry, I just don't understand why people enjoy '77.

Ha ha, no sooner do I slam '77, then I'm reminded, this is indeed a very good solo.

Yeah, I forget that is from the Dragon Snake, a much mixed reaction '77 show, if not at the top. In any event, I just love it, especially Bonham....

I'm not usually a fan of what Robert does with Zeppelin songs but this is actually pretty good, I'm amazed by how well Robert sings for his age too bad he couldn't do an acoustic show for the 50th.

Rain Song was fantastic. Trampled, sorry, had to go back and listen/watch EC one. :)

Yeah I didn't like the middle section at all but Rain Song sounded great.

I  don't  understand  why  you  call  yourself  a  zeppelin  fan. They  played  many  brilliant  shows  in  '77.  If  you  judge  the  tour  by  mediocre  performances, that's  your  problem. The  LA  performances  and  some  others  were  better  than  those  of  the  '75  tour.

Listened to the entire 6/23/77 show last night, alone, in total darkness, at volume,  with no breaks or interruptions!

EPIC!

I guess I'll have to find some way to carry on, without you thinking I'm a Zep fan.

Burn Like A Candle on Graf Zeppelin

Full show, dimmed lights & smoking requisites at hand- by the time I reach Louie Louie, I will be pretty tall.

That is what I call a remedy.
