I have always thought that TSRTS was a great way for the band to come in, sonically grab the fans like saying "strap your ass in cause we goin for a helluva ride!!" In 73-75 it had its place with TRS but wow what an opener:):) Someone posted CP would have been a good start for the 75 shows and I agree. . Its an amazing opener for PG so why not for the shows? When in the mood for a 75 boot, Ill usually go right to SA and skip RAR:) 73 for me it depends on Percy hittin right or not. . 

I've read opinions that say that TSRTS should not have been the opener as the band really needed to be warmed up to play that complex song. I love the song but they did struggle a number of times with it coming in cold so to speak.

I just thought of another one which hasn't been mentioned yet: Immigrant Song at Uniondale 6/15/72. Even though Plant's voice was starting to strain on this song by this time, the sheer ferocity of this opener is insane.

Immigrant Song from Orlando 71. By far the heaviest version of this song. Bonzo's drums are up front and Plant's primal screams are like nothing else from this era of rock music.
