bigstickbonzo Posted March 6, 2009 Share Posted March 6, 2009 The real creative "LIVE" band Zeppelin was died after 72 I think. And it was because Jimmy couldn't or for the most part wouldn't play with the same authority that he had in the early day's of the band. I'd say the band peaked in 1973 (especially March). As said by numerous people in different threads, the long jam sections for Dazed and Whole Lotta Love hit their peaks by the NA Tour and there was really nothing left do with them afterward. It had taken them numerous tours and five straight years of stretching themselves and the sections to craft what they were by the New York shows in 1973. I think that's why alot of people have some disdain for the 1975 versions of Dazed. It was rather bloated and felt mediocre compared with versions from 1972-73. It's all preference though. I consider No Quarter the best during the 73 tour while others think some of the 75 and especially 77 versions really highlight what the song's potention was intended for.
