Traveling Riverside Blues Promo

Whoever edited the video deserves some kind of award. The mimicked live footage is spot on and the whole feel and attitude of the song is represented perfectly, right down to the underwater swamp footage. I think this video is a hidden gem in the Zep catalog and is just as noteworthy as any t-shirt or poster.

It must be almost sixteen years since I watched that , I only played it once or twice back in 03 when DVD came out.

I might be mistaken, but I don’t believe his video was created by the Zeppelin camp. It was created for a MTV Zep weekend celebration coinciding with the release of the 1990 box set. I always believed at the time that it was done by MTV.

I too thoroughly enjoy the video.

Used to have it on VHS for years before it came out on DVD. I never watch it now but it was brilliantly put together.

I agree, this video was an artistic acheivement back in the video days. It illustrated the song nicely and fm rock radio had turned to playing travelling riverside blues alot in the mid to later 80s...so again, the timing was perfect for led zeppelin marketing.

Found this info in "Jimmy Page, Magus Music Man". Excellent work by Powell.

Yes I've longed revered this video, it's so perfectly in balance and in a strange kind of way so Led!

What a great video of one of my favorite Zep songs! Thanks for sharing. What was that bit with Robert and the elderly woman all about? She certainly seemed to be enjoying herself!

I remember being about 16 when this came out and talking with my guy friends about “new Zeppelin!”, and “whoa, Zeppelin made a video”. I watched it last week for the first time in about 25-ish years.  Love m some TRB.

Not the video, but the SONG itself I remember FOR THE FIRST TIME HEARING at a gig of an ex-roadie of Jimmy Page's (Joe Jammer).  The club was noisy but the radio station playing over the din of the crowd was playing a song that sounded VERY ZEP LIKE.  I thought maybe I had too much to drink the next day, but the next afternoon the same radio station played "Traveling Riverside Blues" and then and there I knew it was a newly uncovered Zep song someone "found" (this would have been the late 1980s, before the box set). I realize it was on the BBC back in 1969,  but here it the U.S., it was something new to behold!
