Bonzo_fan Posted April 8, 2014 Share Posted April 8, 2014 Does anyone else wish they played "Black Dog" more often in 1977? I was listening to June 13th yesterday and thought "Black Dog" sounded really good, and surprisingly Jones' Alembic suited it quite well. It also seems like it was Bonzo's idea to do it. There's a substantial pause after "Whole Lotta Love"; it's as if the rest of the band are expecting him to jump into "Rock And Roll," but instead (and we can't know for sure because of the poor tape quality) he calls for "Black Dog". Sort of like he did for "Trampled Under Foot" on June 23rd. The only other "Black Dog" we have on tape from '77 is July 23rd in Oakland. I was reading one of the reviews from May 31st in Greensboro the other day and the guy seemed to remember them playing it after "Rock And Roll" at that show. That would make sense if my theory about Bonzo wanting to do it June 13th is correct seeing as the Greensboro show was on his birthday--maybe he liked it better than "Rock And Roll" (I know I do).
