Tony Harden Posted March 12, 2018 Share Posted March 12, 2018 Watching the video of this show has given me a new respect for the whole 1977 tour. Yes the tour had its negatives but I want to focus more on the tour's positives. This was Led Zeppelin at their most visually pleasing. A tour this grand with shows that were that spectacular deserves to have at least one complete show on film. It's a shame that we don't have more. Let's not forget that many of the fans of the day risked their lives getting tickets to the shows and also by actually going to the shows A List Of Five Things I Enjoy About The 1977 Tour: 5. Ten Years Gone - As far as I know this number had never been done live in the US before the '77 tour. I like it. It sets the mood for the acoustic set very well. 4. The Return Of The Acoustic Set: A. Going To California always steals every Zep acoustic set for me B. I love The Battle Of Evermore in the '77 acoustic set. Jonsey taking on Sandy Denny's lines is interesting but it works 3. Jimmy's Feedback Solo - A lot of Zep fans moan about this but I've always liked it. If the '77 version of No Quarter failed to deliver the feeling of gloom and doom that the '73 and '75 versions offered then the Feedback solo gives at least some of it back. 2. Jimmy's White Costume - This has always been my favorite of all of Jimmy's stage costumes. Jimmy didn't wear it at every show on the '77 tour but it will always be the pinnacle of cool to me. 1. Achilles - Arguably Zep's hardest number. This one always brings the house to its knees Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
