    In terms of pure performance, here would be my top 10, in chronological order:

    Boston 1/26/69

    New York 9/19/70 (evening show)

    Belfast 3/5/71

    Osaka 9/28/71

    Seattle 6/19/72

    Offenburg 3/24/73

    Los Angeles 6/3/73

    Seattle 3/21/75

    Los Angeles 6/22/77

    Copenhagen 7/24/79

    I agree with others that Strider's list is a good jumping off point if you're just starting to get into bootlegs. All of the shows he's listed have a good mix of sound quality and performance.

    Thats very similar to what i would say, glad you included belfast, an amazing show especially for plant

  2. This has been discussed before many times, but they are all over the place, id like a nice updated top 10 list of bootlegs from any time based mostly on performance from ththe entire band, must include good plant shows. This would be a difficult task but id just like to hear what everyone has to say

  3. Led Zeppelin has released barely any live material. The DVD includes very little footage of early zep at their peak where Robert has his incredibly high and beatiful voice. I wish we had more footage like Royal Albert Hall, but i guess we’re gonna have to deal with it. Besides the DVD, we have the god like audio of the LA and long beach performances of How The West Was Won, The Song Remains the Same, and the BBC sessions.

    This post is to appreciate the sessions which have not been discussed recently (as far as i know). They are probably the only semi-crystal clear live performances of 1971 we will get, and im not forgetting the up and coming Osaka soundboard, that from what we got so far, lacks The power of professionally recorded material. Still exciting tho, it will definitely rock. Anyways, the sessions need to be more recognized. They include some songs closely resembling the studio recording, for example the John Peel sessions “What is and what should never be” and some mind blowing improvising in the 1969 sessions including Traveling Riverside Blues. Overall, I am very bad at explaining this, but just remember to re-listen to the BBC sessions! They are some one of a kind performances.

    No way HTWWW...Seattle 73 ( I know it's not 72) is the champ. The last verse after the aceppella is killer with Robert hitting the highs with emotion and Jimmy throwing in some interesting licks here and there. I think 73 was better than 72 because they mastered it live and Jimmy's tone is much better on the Les Paul. 

    Ya, robert hits more notes in 72 but i agree jimmys tone is better and robert messes up lyrics in 72.

    seattle 73 is great playing but has crowd noise. Plant does very well for 73’ and its a powerful performance, better quality than kezar, although kezar is difficult to beat
