L.A. '77 The Most Consistent Stretch for "Stairway To Heaven"?


Recommended Posts

As I've been dutifully listening to the L.A. '77 shows on their anniversary this week (in the middle of "No Quarter" from the 22nd atm), I started thinking about how good all six versions of "Stairway To Heaven" are.  Sure, I guess you could say Jimmy's fingers are a bit sticky during the solo on the 27th, but it's not a bad version, and the other five are all pretty stellar--especially the 21st, 22nd, 23rd & 26th.  The 22nd might just be my favourite version ever--Plant doesn't sing "Does anyone remember laughter?," and Jimmy jumps right into the solo after the triumphant fanfare as he does on the album.

So, the question is: are the L.A. '77 shows the most consistent say 4+ show stretch for "Stairway"?  I would think that it certainly is at least for post-'73.  I guess if we say 4+, then the four Pacific Northwest '75 shows would be right up there.
