Thank You

Recommended Posts

I'm new to this whole bootleg business but perhaps the biggest surprise to me has been what a monster Thank You evidently was in concert. 

I didn't think the BBC Sessions version could be topped but so far I'd say Montreux 3/7/70, Blueberry Hill 9/4/70 and Southampton 1/22/73 (of all shows) are in the same league. 

Are there any other recommended versions I should check out?

Yep ‘71

That's a killer!! Also Tampa and Raleigh in April of 1970.

I love that version so much I did a video of Bonham's drum part on that recording. The interaction between him and Page is incredible!

Yes, indeed! Thanks. If you're interested , I'm part of a YouTube Zep cover band called People's Front Of Zeppelin. Have a look, I think you'll dig it.

LA 8/21/71 is a monster.

For sure.  That whole show seems to be a bit underrated.  My all-time favourite Black Dog, and probably the very best recording for appreciating Bonzo (sonically-speaking, combined with performance).

Osaka 9/29/71, 9/19/70 (evening show), 6/19/72, 6/25/72, 3/7/70 all come to mind as some pretty great versions.

All the LA Forum ones...9.4.70, 8.21.71, 8.22.71, 6.25.72, 6.3.73.

9.2.70 Oakland, 9.19.70 Madison Square Garden, 8.31.71 Orlando, 9.4.71 Toronto. All the 1971 Japanese Tour ones. 7.29.73 MSG.

Oh, and 4.14.70 Ottawa.

Orlando '71 is pure tight but loose Jimmy and Bonham going at it. Beautiful. One of my favorite Jimmy moments. The BBC '71 is a close second.
