Best setlist and Ideal setlist

Recommended Posts

--This should probably be pinned so no more "best setlist" or "ideal setlist" posts crop up--

Just list what you think is their best setlist and follow it up what with what you think an ideal setlist wouldve been. Mine:

Knebworth (4th) is their best setlist IMO. For newbies, that consisted of:

1. The Song Remains the Same

2. Celebration Day

3. Black Dog

4. Nobody's Fault but Mine

5. Over the Hills and Far Away

6. Misty Mountain Hop

7. Since I've Been Loving You

8. No Quarter

9. Ten Years Gone (BEST VERSION KNOWN TO MAN IMHO)

10. Hot Dog

11. The Rain Song

12. White Summer / Black Mountain Side

13. Kashmir

14 Trampled Under Foot

15. Sick Again

16. Achilles Last Stand

17. Guitar Solo / Noise Solo / In the Evening

18. Stairway to Heaven

19 Rock and Roll (1st Encore)

20. Whole Lotta Love (2nd Encore)

21. Heartbreaker (3rd Encore)

No Dazed, CB, or Moby sadly but its still the best running order in all of Zep... (although CB was done the second week anyway)

My IDEAL ZeppList:

1. Immigrant Song

2. Celebration Day

3. Black Dog (w/ "Out on the Tiles" intro, BIOH sucked as an intro riff for this)

4. Over the Hills and Far Away

5. When the Levee Breaks (Note: I'm playing fast-and-loose with what they can actually do live)

6. The Rover (FULL-LENGTH)

7. Sick Again

8. Since I've Been Loving You

9. No Quarter

10. Dancing Days

11. What is and What Should Never Be

12. The Song Remains the Same

13. The Rain Song

14. White Summer / Black Mountain Side

15. Going to California

16. That's the Way

17. Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp

18. Babe I'm Gonna Leave You

19. Trampled Under Foot

20. Hot Dog

21. All My Love

22. In the Evening

23. Nobody's Fault But Mine

24. Ten Years Gone

25. Kashmir

26. Achilles Last Stand

27. Dazed and Confused

28. Stairway to Heaven

ENCORES:

Rock and Roll

Heartbreaker

Night Flight

The Ocean

Whole Lotta Love

Communication Breakdown

Bring it on Home

(and when the crowd STILL wants more and is screaming "MORE ZEPP, MORE ZEPP!!!!"):

We're Gonna Groove / I Can't Quit You Baby

(and after Robert says "Goodnight, (whatever city)!" and the crowd riots):

ROBERT: "Thank you very very much, yes thank you...Alright well, unfortunately we've gotta leave you, but we'll play one more...I don't think we've done this in about, eh, (*lets say this is 75*) five years I think..."

Jimmy tunes up and then they play:

Somethin' Else

----AND THEN THE CROWD FINALLY LETS THEM LEAVE BECAUSE THEY HAVE ALL FAINTED DUE TO THE RAW MUSICAL FORCES AT WORK----

I think I had WAAAAY too much fun writing that second half (my "ideal" setlist pushes five hours *without* banter from Robert...)

But let's see if anyone can come up with a better setlist (preferably a more realistic one) B)

Edited to say please forgive my ridiculousness writing those last two encores, (especially that "RAW MUSICAL FORCES" bit, it's 12:23 and I cant think straight, sorry.

The 71/72 setlists and performances are my personal favorites; so putting together a vaguely realistic setlist, here's my idea of a perfect show:

1.) Immigrant Song

2.) Heartbreaker

3.) Black Dog

4.) Over The Hills And Far Away

5.) Misty Mountain Hop

6.) Since I've Been Loving You

7.) No Quarter

8.) The Song Remains The Same

9.) The Rain Song

10.) Stairway to Heaven

11.) Tangerine (Electric version, like Earl's Court)

12.) Hey Hey What Can I Do (Electric again, like Tangerine)

13.) Ten Years Gone

14.) Going To California

15.) That's The Way

16.) Dazed and Confused

17.) The Ocean

18.) Houses Of The Holy

19.) Whole Lotta Love

20.) Mellotron Solo/Thank You

21.) When The Levee Breaks

22.) Bring It On Home

Pair this with a Japan 71 caliber performance from all four members and it's possible this becomes the greatest show they ever played ;)

They should have mixed up the set lists from night to night.   If not completely different from night to night maybe include some set list anchors to keep things a little consistent but swap out lots of songs especially when doing 2, 3, 4 and 5 night runs.

I struggle with this thought all the time. I love The Grateful Dead and at times wish Zeppelin would have used a similar model live. But doing so also involved taking huge risks with the performance. At the end of the day I'll take the difference in Zeppelin sets during the Whole Lotta Love or How Many More Times medleys. That part of the show got switched up quite frequently during the early days and resulted in some amazing stuff.

imo the best set of their career is Seattle '72.

1. Immigrant Song ->

2. Heartbreaker

3. Black Dog

4. The Ocean (debut)

5. Since I've Been Loving You

6. Stairway to Heaven

7. Going to California

8. Black Country Woman (impromptu - debut)

9. That's the Way

10. Tangerine

11. Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp

12. Dazed and Confused (Snippets incl. Walter's Walk and The Crunge)

13. What Is and What Should Never Be

14. Dancing Days

15. Moby Dick

16. Whole Lotta Love (Medley incl. Boogie Chillen', Let's Have a Party, Hello Mary Lou, Only the Lonely, Heartbreak Hotel, Going Down Slow)

Encores:

17. Rock and Roll

Encore 2:

18. Organ Solo (Snippets incl. Amazing Grace, Everyday People, Medley incl. Louie Louie, Let's Dance) ->

19. Thank You

Encore 3:

20. Money (That's What I Want)

(possibly leaving the stage again)

21. Over the Hills and Far Away (debut)

22. Dancing Days (2nd performance)

Just what a fuckin' marathon. It's also worth mentioning that every song in the organ solo medley and Money was also played for the first time ever that night.

 

It's almost impossible to discuss ideal setlists without going tour by tour, but let's take the '77 set and tweak it a bit...

1. The Song Remains the Same ->

2. Sick Again ->

3. The Rover: no clue why they never gave this one a full go... Robert's voice surely could've handled it by '77

4. Nobody's Fault But Mine

5. Alternating: In My Time of Dying (with You Shook Me snippet) and Since I've Been Loving You 

6. No Quarter

7. Ten Years Gone -> (I think this transition could've be really fuckin cool)

8. The Rain Song

9. Going to California

10. Black Country Woman (abridged) ->

11. Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp (w/ the occasional Dancing Days snippet)

12. Over the Top (but let's cut it 15 minutes)

13. White Summer/Black Mountain Side ->

14. Kashmir

15. Alternating: Over the Hills and Far Away and Trampled Under Foot

16. Noise Solo (cut it at 10 minutes)

17. Achilles Last Stand

18. Stairway to Heaven

Encores:

20. Whole Lotta Love ->

21. Alternating: Communication Breakdown, Black Dog, Rock and Roll, The Ocean
