  1. Leicester Uni 1971. When you think back to 1971, Zeppelin where the biggest band that where still virtually unseen on TV. Even Jimi Hendrix and the Stones were on top of pops and other shows such as "Lulu" and "this is Tom Jones". So Zeppelin were still the best kept secret to their fans, which was remarkable, as their alums from Zeppelin 2 always went to number one, but the reaction from most people was usually Led who?? Anyway, being as this concert was at Leicester Uni, you had to be a student union member to buy a ticket. I wasn't a member so I had to find a student that didn't like Zeppe
  2. I saw Queen before they were big, at the time the first Queen LP had not long been out and the single was "keep yourself alive", they played unsurported at Peterborough Town Hall, which was odd as they were on tour supporting Mott The Hoople, but played this one-off show on their own at very short notice, hence no tickets were ever printed and we had our hands ink stamped. I remember the date 22nd Dec 1973 as it was a year to the day after my second Zeppelin show Ally Pally '72. At the time, as you will all know in '73 Queen were nothing like the band they later became, and were much more rock
  3. Thanks to everyone who replied,even the ones trying to wind each other up.
  4. There is a lot of argueing going on here, I will re word question if that helps. What is the best not commercially available live show.
  5. Thanks, DAS I'll look out for the 73 sound check.
  6. I remember the days when a new Led Zeppelin bootleg was news, and nearly as easy to buy as the studio releases. Blueberryhill was everywhere in 1971, and I remember reading a review in the music press about the Going to California double album, which was for sale in the small ads in the same publication. It was easy to keep up with them in those days, but now there are so many that I have missed I was wondering if any fans could tell me their favourites, so I can reliably whitle it down to a few definitive ones.
  7. I went to all five nights, had front row tickets for all five. I met my wife there. Fantastic days. Some of my pics are on this site ( Stuart Whitehead, my real name ).
