I mostly agree. But the best version of kashmir is 6/22/77 followed by 6/25/77 and 6/21/77. As for OTHAFA, I would also pick 6/19/72 as my favourite early version. The BEST later version is 6/22/77, no contest for this.

This version with it's Plantation included (how novel), if this isn't THE version of this song and one of the greatest LZ moments of all... well, i'll eat my bowler hat.

Possibly because it is also on film which edges out some very good competition like Zurich and Frankfurt 1980 for starters. And Jonesy's funky groove is so perfect.

One of my top five favorite Zeppelin tunes, so very killer. Yeah, the Zurich and Frankfurt ‘80 performances were good, real good. But not just listening but also watching the band at the height of their powers at Earls Court as they hit the audience up the side of their heads with some funk. Glorious, I never tire of watching that.

I do love Plant's ad lib in the "Oh Georgina" section on this one 😆 He also didn't sing the "Oh Georgina" bit live that often...
