Great video! I never knew Pete Townshend played with Robert live. I wonder if it was just that 1 song or a whole concert. Now i have do some research lol as curiousity is getting the better of me. Anyway, Thanks Deborah for posting. I love Robert's 1st 2 solo albums, always thought they were his most underated work in his career. Songs like Thru With the 2 Step, Moonlight in Samosa, Like i Never Been Gone are some of my alltime Plant favorite's.

It was just one song - during The Princes Trust Rock Gala at the Dominion Theatre in London, Wednesday July 21st 1982. I was there and still have my ticket and programme - a great night.

Incidentally, special mention to Mick Karn, the bassist for this performance, who died recently.

Here's one from Jimmy's first return to the U.S. since Zeppelin broke up. MSG in December 1983. Although, the versions of this on the 1988 Outrider tour, I think were a bit better.

Thanks for posting that. Page is ridiculously cool on that. His sound there is way, way out. His moves are fantastic. I think he would have been better suited at that time to make his appearances with more of the new wave/punk scene, with that approach. I get that those shows were for charity.

Yes they were for charity. They were the A.R.M.S. concerts. Action Research for Multiple Sclerosis. They were for fellow musician Ronnie Lane. Shows were done in London, NYC, San Francisco and Dallas. I think that was it. Jimmy wasn't in the best shape at the time, but he played well.

Not sure if this has been posted yet. I work on an Air Force base in the middle of nowhere and the only TV we get is Armed Forces Network (AFN). They recently started playing a cool commercial on there (we only get military commercials in between shows...and only 4 TV channels) that's titled "Legends Influenced by AFN". The commercial is a 15 second clip of Robert Plant on the David Letterman show telling Dave how when he was in England growing up they would listen to AFN out of Germany and if you were lucky you'd hear Sonny Boy Williamson or Muddy Waters and it really made an impact on him. In the background of the commercial they play "Black Dog".

Pretty cool for the military.....

That was from the appearance Robert made on the show back in early February. Below is the thread, regarding this.

Has Robert Plant's alternative fantasy sequence from TSRTS been posted in this thread yet? (I searched briefly using the search engine and scanned a few of the 50 or so pages here.)

Here are the rest of the Outtakes, including the fantasy sequence:

I agree that the Outrider versions were better, and part of the reason for that is he's playing rhythm guitar as opposed to just wailing on leads. The riff in Who's To Blame needs him playing it, and in 1988, that's what he did. This has been posted prior, I'm sure... but here's one from that tour... along w/ Prelude as a bonus! You'll notice that he's playing w/ fire and passion, and I think one thing that hurt him at the A.R.M.S. shows was that he was playing w/ people who weren't in his band... ie; Jeff Beck's drummer/bass player, etc... The Outrider tour shows he was on it!

I would like to thank you Silver Rider for posting this alternative "fantasy" sequence of Robert Plant. I have seen it before, a long time ago. I had the VHS version of Led Zeppelin titled the "First Cuts" which was about an hour or so of alternate versions of the "Song Remains the Same". I have no idea where my VHS copy disappeared to.

This is the main reason I started this Led Zeppelin or Related topic is so that all of us Led Zeppelin fans can see and hear and sometimes experience songs and videos about "OUR" favorite band that may otherwise have not been seen or heard before. On that note, I would like to thank everbody that has posted a video or replied to a video or song. When it comes to the "Mighty Led Zeppelin", I would LOVE to convert the whole world to the Powerful Legacy and Music of Jimmy Page/Robert Plant/John Paul Jones/John Bonham. I know that I am not alone. This topic is my way of trying to do so. "THANK YOU"!!!

You're welcome, lzzoso. Here's another one that popped up today.

Robert Plant and John Paul Jones start an impromptu cover of "Georgia On My Mind". Taken from 1973.05.26, Salt Lake City, Utah. Soundboard source.
