My understanding of "era" is different than yours, so I can't really use your list, as they are all too short.

My favourite Led Zeppelin era is what I fondly call the 'Bearded Era'...that period from roughly the 1970 Summer tour to the 1972 Australian/New Zealand tour. Every show is a powerhouse!

Agreed. My favorite era was from 1969-1980.

You could say that, although they continued to open their concerts with "Immigrant Song" for nearly a year after shaving their beards.

Personally I'm going with the '79 era because even though they butchered some of the songs like over the hills and far away and celebration day, they played a very big setlist and a lot of the songs are very well done like Kashmir and in the evening

77 for me. Long sets, long shows, big songs, big (record breaking) crowds, and four guys standing as one to make it all worthwhile. Plus the visual appeal is great as well, what with a great light show, dragon suits here and stormtroopers there, and the musical chops to back it up.

For me it's 1969 - 1975. I LOVE all of it but the 1968 sets are a kin to a child learning how to walk. You LOVE them unconditionally - but as they grow up, learn to walk, & walk don't run they do! They also develop a personality. And its the persona between 1969 & 1975 that I just love. They seem to be really happy & really enjoying it just look/listen to the WLL medleys during this time frame. They were unstoppable - nothing could touch them.

70-71. Best mix of mature skills plus youthful exuberance for live shows. But my favorite studio era is the "progressive era", Physical Graffiti and Presence are the albums I listen to most often.

The "Bearded Era", I like that! :thumbsup:

I'd say 75-77, and if I had to be more specific, then it's the U.S. '75 tour, even though I dig the Earl's Court shows.

Why? Setlist, and, the quality of the soundboards from '75 and '77--my primary connection to those days. For whatever reason (maybe one of y'all know), the '73 boards just don't have a rich, full, warm sound.

The longer medley versions of WLL have their place, but I'd gladly trade it for live performances of Kashmir, Achilles, No Quarter and Ten Years Gone.

Hands down 69 - 73. Great playing, great vibes. A band finding their feet and really rocking. Plants voice was in top condition ( barring a few dates in 73) and Jimmy's playing was inspired. Love Blueberry Hill from 70 and The Berkeley shows from 1971. Breathtaking

Plant and Page

Got to say 1970 to 1972. Loved the immagrant song, acoustic sets, great WWL medleys plus the sound Jimmy playing and Plants voice where peaking.

Bonham and Jones

1973 TO 1977

The rythem section was a force as the band became a blotted Super group.
