Stairway 75-77 Vocals

Recommended Posts

What would be the best sung version from these years I always find Robert doesn't seem to care much about Stairway during these years, also are there any versions where Robert sings the outro as powerfully as the studio it seems Robert quit after 73 but started to again in 80 in those final concerts.

Off the top of my head, 3/21/75 & 6/22/77 are good Stairways for Plant from those two years.  There are several others, of course...

Off the top of my head--Seattle '77; lyrically and vocally, it's hard to top, especially Jimmy's solo...

Vocally  I think  the may 17th  earls court version  is one of plants best from that era .  Jimmy plays a great solo as well .. badge holders is pretty decent as well along with june 22 77.

Just to be clear, Robert never hit the original notes in the coda after 72. And even in 72 it was only at a handful of shows, at most.

That’s not to say there’s not a lot of great Stairways during these years, of course, and some strong vocal performances. Certainly there are some great ones in the ‘77 Forum run. About half of my listening over the past 6 months has been Zeppelin boots. 🙂

Robert hits the oringinal melody at Baltimore and Pittsburgh 73 and the 80 rehearsal,  Munich, and Berlin during the 80 tour. But thanks for the suggestions I’ll check them out.

That's not the original melody. 

On the album the "Lady" is the highest note in the song (along with the "One is all" part). He doesn't try for either here. I haven't heard Pittsburgh '73 yet but am doubtful about it.
