Long Versions?

Recommended Posts

Well does anybody know the longest versions of the improv songs:Dazed and Confused, Since I've Been Loving You, No Quarter, and Moby Dick.

I know a few possibles like Dazed and Confused went roughly 41:00 in Seattle 75, No Quarter went 30:00 at the L.A. Forum 6/21/77, and Moby Dick was around 40 minutes at The Earl's Court.

I have a bootleg from MSG in '77 about a week before the forum show and the no quarter always goes a half hour on it. That show has about the best set list I've ever seen but the sound quality is fair at best.

6-11-77 MSG No Quarter takes at least 32 to 33 minutes (when you splice the soundboard with the audience source to make it complete)

I used to have Destroyer, which was taken off the soundboard in Cleveland, April 27, 1977. I'm pretty sure No Quarter clocked in at just under a half hour, still shorter than the Dazed from the movie. So then by June it had become a little longer?

As far as I've been able to find, the longest version of Dazed is the 29:33 from the original Song Remains the Same double album. The Earl's Court Dazed (which I still have) is 27 minutes or so ... Dazed was still longer than NQ in '75.

which, if No Quarter became longer in '77 would make it their longest live track.

Moby Dick 40 mins? Perhaps a legend? With Robert's intro this version from Earl's court clocks in at 28 mins.

That's part one. The rest you can find on youtube, which I'm sure y'all know.

How bout the 43 minute D&C from Seattle 1975... :mellow:

Was that the night they also played "Since" (March 21)? The broken finger had a lot of things rearranged that tour. I'm looking through torrent downloads and stuff, and something clocks in at 42:24 from that night. Dazed?

If you've heard it, where do the extra 10-15 minutes come in? I'm hoping he didn't take extra long to change tuning before the "Woodstock" section ... :o

"Dazed" from 3/21/75 Seattle is 40:14 which according to MY research is it's longest version and the longest song they did live but if anybody can confirm or correct me that would be great. I doubt the longest No Quarter was in 75 as I find 77's versions were signifigantly longer by about 15:00 minutes.

A bit redundant but since people are arguing.

No Quarter from 3-14-75 San Diego is 31+ minutes.

Wow - Aspensound please fill in on what comprised the added 15 mins from where it started out (25-27mins) at Earl's court? That's quite an evolution - Earl's Court to not playing it b/c of the finger to extending it to 44 mins ... I'm dying to know. How many more times?

There really wasnt anything that different about the versions from late in the US 75 tour compaired to EC, just more improv on the same themes. Most unique thing(and best IMHO) about that LA version is Plant singing some (possible improvised) lyrics most call "loving you" instead of San Fran or Woodstock.

Longest How Many More Times was I believe Memphis 70 at around 32 mins.

I'd love to hear that, as that "Orpheus descending" section leading to the bow solo is my favorite piece of music - any links to that or a way to access it online?

Should have explained, but was just wondering about How Many More times from the '75, which was played early in the tour instead of Dazed to spare Page's finger. It seemed like a possibility that maybe they took some of the themes developing in How Many More Times and brought them into Dazed once Page felt up to playing it. Just a thought.

Well in the concerts these musical master pieces were and are mostly improvisation, doesn´t it?

They pick, during the play, notes and verses from different songs, and not only their ones own.

Or am I wrong?

Here´s, longest song what I have (or rehearsal or experiment or something) from LZ :rolleyes:

It's a mistake to think that every night it was completely improvised - it's not like they freeformed 30 minutes every night. There was a structure to their improv, but there usually small differences from night to night, and over the course of a tour, you can hear the progression.

Sorry don't really keep on with online DL's and wouldnt be able to post it here if I did, its a Millard recording though so the sound is exellent.

Personally that version may well me my favourite performance of the section as the band really keep the atmosphere well and Plant's just vocalising with "ohhhhhhhh"'s alot of the time rather than trying to fit in lyrics.
