  1. Of course, the "fiasco" refers to public reaction, which seems completely incomprehensible considering the performance and the type of solo in question. And it's like that for almost every interpretation (decently recorded or not). As much usual, the solo is followed by a cathedral of silence, broken by Plant, as here, Plant delaying to starting his couplet, only a few meager aplaudissements are heard. The thesis of the "paralyzing emotional shock" is therefore - IMO - excluded. I'd kill to obtain the testimony of one of these Silent One.
  2. So true. Jimmy said something like that, about how type of player he is : "I'm not technicly the best, but when i'm on stage i go for it..." I will add that his sloppy phrasing often give birth to licks came from nowhere, which can only be played like this.
  3. It's me or Jimmy does the backs here ? That would make my day (and sens).
  4. No quarter 1977/06/14 The intro of the solo is crazy.
  5. 1973/06/07 Heartbreaker Jimmy use the wah pedal during the solo !
  6. May be not the most melodic but, as you say : intense. And bonzo .. love the complicity* between the two. *not sure of the pertinence of this word.
  7. As french, you can not imagine how hard it is to see him interviewed by a "journalist" (presenter, actually), developer, among others, of the the worst talent show we ever had, which gave this kind of stuff : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9eWD_f4tXE http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03-V4y-giBI&feature=kp http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LG6DPOIeZA For once I dig everything, it's an useless itw...know that non-english speaking are very frustrated to not take advantage of the audio sources findable on the web. Lucky you are.
  8. I had this thought while listening to the San Diego gig, in 1977. What an audience ! More precisely in No quarter, when the bluesy jam ends and when Jonesy takes the original theme song. At this point, you can hear the screams of the crowd, including a hysterical guy (especially when Jimmy joined the piano) who scream like i want a scream when i listen to this stuff. I also think about the first and unique time i hear the audience singing stairway :
  9. I thought it was funny...at the time.
