List of first performance of every song

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I always found really interesting to hear the first performance of songs because we can really see how the public react to something they hear for the first time and sometimes the lyric or the way they perform is different.

So I think it's a good idea to make a list of the first performance of Led Zeppelin songs.

To make it easier, I'll edit this post and I'll make a list by album.

Please note : After 24h I'll not be able to edit my first post, so I'll post an update in the next page, so stand tuned !

example :

Good time bad time : [date/link of the bootleg] ...

If the bootleg is not of good quality, you can post a second link to the 2nd or 3rd performance with a better audio but please always link the first performance. If you're not sure, you can still post the link of course ! :)

I'm aware of that, in that case I'll just write something like "never performed" or maybe I'll post a version of the Plant & Page tour in the end 90' (Tea for one for example)

ps : Is the 25/01/1975 performance, the first bootleg of 1975 ?
