Favorite versions of Dazed and Confused?

Offenburg is indeed a fantastic performance from Page and probably the best overall show of the tour. That being said, I really like Dazed (especially the "Machine Gun" tease before the bow solo), but it's not quite as good as the other two. The band skips the Mars: Bringer of War section, and it feels somewhat hurried and rushed (even though Page in particular is playing his ass off). Vienna and Hamburg have that little something extra, the "X factor" if you will. But Offenburg is a great rendition as well, just a 9 or 9.5 out of 10 rather than a 10 out of 10.

That's fair.  I also wish they didn't skip the Mars section.

I'll go with Hamburg and Essen 1973 with an honorable mention for both Seattle '73 and '75 (03/21/75)

Is it just me or did Jimmy play quite a bit of different sections of Maggot Brain in his D&C's from 73' on? Especially in 75' he seems to be playing whole pieces of Maggot Brain and Machine Gun.

Damn I love these versions.

Not saying you're wrong, but do you have any examples (with timestamps) of when he would play a bit of Maggot Brain?

I've always held the Dazed & Confused from the Paris Theater '71 to be ONE of my favorites. Maybe it's because when I first started to really get into Zeppelin when I was 13 and first heard the BBC concert series on WNEW FM here in New York play that show I really liked that version of Dazed. I have a soft spot for that version. But, I'd have to say the original Song Remains The Same soundtrack version is amazing on so many levels. Even though it's edited in a few spots, it's still a killer version. But then you delve into all the bootlegs and there's a treasure trove of excellent versions. Osaka 929, Berkeley 9-14-71, Adelaide 2-19-72, Vienna 3-16-73, and finally Hamburg 3-21-73 are in my tops for my favorite versions of Dazed & Confused.

New York July 27th 1973.....audience recording. This is my benchmark Dazed. Page is absolutely on fire.

I just wish there was a better aud recording or an unedited SBD of that Dazed from 7/27. I think that was Page at his absolute peak right there. He never reached that level again after July '73.
