Favorite/Best version of Since I've Been Loving You

Recommended Posts

I really like Milan  1971.  It's another  one of plants best vocals for that song. I love how the  tape distorts when plants let's that amazing scream rip after the solo . September 24 71 in Tokyo is another great one.  Belfast in March 71 is another blistering version and a tip shelf plant vocal. Manchester 71 is excellent  as well  with plant owning it vocally.  Melbourne  and Brisbane on the 72 Aussie tour are  2 great overlooked versions . Auckland new Zealand is one of my all time favorites as well  . Vocally all three of those are extremely powerfull  and are among the best plant  delivered on stage for that song. They are much more powerful than many of the 1971 versions and the Aussie tour is the last time plant was able to sing that song with that much range power and intensity.   Pages playing and tone  has a sound and vibe thst reminds me alot of the more raw versions from August and September of 1970.  Alot of poeple mention the june 19 72 version which is amazing  but i think the june 18th version is just as great and is my favorite from the 72 u s tour. It's another one that puts me in mind of the latter 1970 versions.

Even though it is edited :angry: , the TSRTS version is still my fave i think, but the LA Forum 21st/23rd 1977 versions are also brilliant imo B)

I've heard about 10 versions at this point and the version you mentioned from LA on the 23/6/77 (I know it as "For Badge Holders Only"). is head and shoulders above the rest IMO. I have had some moments listening to this version, I will never forget. Plant sings like an angel. It is my 2nd favourite version of any song of all time.

Wow, no mention of the one from the 3/21/1970 broadcast from Vancouver? One of, if not the finest vocal performance of the song from Plant, captured stunningly with his voice in the front of the mix. I've never heard it sound so raw and emotional, and a lot of that has to do with how Plant sings it out of his MIND that night.

Not perfect but my favorite, a lot of '77 versions, example louisville and all dates from inglewood

Vancouver and Belfast are great too i agree.

I don't know about overall performance, but I listened to "How the east was won" again today and the SIBLY solo is just unreal.

It is indeed, and very unique.

I've really been getting into the live versions of this lately, much more than I have before, and two versions that I haven't seen mentioned here that have struck me in my listening the past month or so are:

May 14, 1973 - New Orleans

June 22, 1977 - Los Angeles

The BBC Sessions version is one of the best ever. It has a uniqueness about the sound and the emotion of it. A few live versions from different era's are brilliant, but the BBC Sessions one is like an alternative studio take. It stands alone. Whether it stands above all others - hard to say.

 . . . like the '70s versions myself, they had slightly different lyrics, especially the famous Montreux concert's version.

June 23rd, 1977 - Holy Shit! The whole band is focused and hotter than a nuclear furnace but Jimmy...oh Jimmy! He is simply on another planet here, not just excellent playing but very unique as well, he throws a LOT of insane runs followed up by subtlety just to knock you on your ass again and again. Brilliant.
