1975 Stairway Solos are Jimmys best ...because ...

Recommended Posts

I have always been a huge fan of the Montreal 1975 show. The STH solo is simply astounding and when it hits its peak , it’s Bonzo who just plays off Jimmy that sends chills through my body every time I hear it. I have also come across an  HD version of STH Earls Court , solo only, with video and with incredible audience sound. It really gives the band the due they deserve.  To hear Bonzo’s drums sounding so powerful and clear with awesome tone against Jimmy’s solo is something that old timers like me will never ever see again with the future of rock n roll.  I love Jimmy’s tone in 1975 on STH,  especially the solo. I feel the difference from 1973 lies with the solo going into areas of more melody and with John’s added tom tom work and off beat ( he’s playing with Jimmy) playing, it’s just incredible. Jimmy’s face buried in his long hair just adds to the mystic. 
Do me a favor. Get on You Tube and get the Montreal snow in 1975 ... go to 2:18 ( hrs)....just freakin blast it. Just when you think he’s gonna pack in the solo, he pushes it even more with  melodic note bending creating an  emotional solo that sends shivers up the spine and John doing magic behind him.  My favorite. 
 

Any other recommendations ?

The 3/21 solo is pretty awesome. It's a little long but the play style is reminiscent of 1973.

Agreed, one of the reasons that show is an all-time great.  The version from the earlier Seattle show (the 17th) gets overlooked, it's outstanding.
