WHOLE LOTTA ...MELODY

Recommended Posts

I read in an article saying June 07, 1972, they performed WTLB as part of the “Whole Lotta Love” medley. 

does anyone have any recordings of this show?

I'm gonna say, No.  Although I am not as versed in 1972 as I am other years I found no evidence of it in the recording and as far as I know they never played it as part of the WLL medley.

Yes, it is there, but it's only consists of Plant singing, "mean ol' levee taught me to weep and moan" a few times over the Going Down Slow melody.

Here's the link:

Man what a version of Whole lotta love. Having read a lot in this Zeppelin form, it seems to me Led Zeppelin live was at it's most creative and spontaneous from 1969-1972, (maybe 73). Look at the set list for example of their setlist for their 1971 Copenhagen show:  

 
  1.  
  2.  
  3.  
  4. (Jake Holmes cover)
  5.  
  6.  
  7.  
  8.  
  9.  
  10. (The first and only more )
    The Maid Freed from the Gallows
  11. ([traditional] cover)
  12. (medley incl. Let That Boy more )  that would be an awesome show to have done officially. I know the 1975 tour had Phy...but most of those shows Roberts Vocals were shall I say {thrashed} but still powerful. I see why a lot of the older Zeppelin fans don't care much for the 77' shows because of the noticeable drop off in performance from Jimmy, {John Bonham was a monster in 77' best part of the band shows were his performances} and Robert vocals sometimes in certain songs he seems just to be shouting and not singing,  Sick again, In my Time of dying come to mind.

I couldn't make out a lot of what was going on, the recording (or at least the version I picked for the listen) is awful and I have been listening to boots since 1984
