I haven't heard it but most say the performance of Levee in Chicago in 1975 was really bad. I guess they could never recreate the studio vibe of that song.

I have the Brussels 1/12/75 show and Levee isn't that good either. Plant's voice and Page's broken finger don't help.

From What I've heard..and off the top of my head

Best:

Dazed and Confused 3/16/73

Heartbreaker 9/4/70

Moby Dick 7/27/73

The Ocean 7/29/73

Tangerine 9/29/71

Achilles Last Stand 6/21/80

The Song Remains the Same 6/21/77

I Can't Quit You Baby 1/9/70

Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp 6/25/72

Whole Lotta Love w/ Medley 6/27/72

Communication Breakdown 10/10/69

Stairway to Heaven (several before 75. Just recently heard the Victoria Theatre version. Best solo by Page from 80)

Best live songs I've heard were:

Stairway to Heaven - June 3, 1973

The Ocean - June 3, 1973

Heartbreaker - June 3, 1973

Whole Lotta Love - June 3, 1973.

To be honest this to me was one of their finest performances ever. Wish they would release this show in its entirety if LZ even has it.

Worst song ever for me:

Hot Dog - 1980 (any version) just my opinion of course.

Best:

No Quarter (03-04-75, 03-27-75, 06-23-77)

Worst:

Hot Dog (song in general, not its performance)

Songs I prefer studio version of:

Babe I'm Gonna Leave You (its just too good acoustic)

Battle of Evermore (vocals couldnt be matched)

Ive listened to them & they bore me. Its like sex that really isnt going anywhere... for a long time. I'll skip ahead to the parts I like, for instance a long but enjoyable "No Quarter" that stimulates. No ADD, just know what I like.

The WLL medleys from 70-73

Ten Years Gone LA 1977

Tangerine Earls Court 75

No Quarter 75 and 77 and i also like the one from 8/4/79

TSRTS 77 Bonzo tore it up that year

Did they ever mess up in In My Time Of Dying? I think that and Kashmir are probably their best performed songs in 75 and after

Oh and holy sh** how could I forget Live Aid as the worst live performance.

There's a few out there that have Live Aid well & truely beaten. For starters does Tempe ring a bell?

Best: No Quarter, particularly in 1977.

Worst: Moby Dick (sorry Bonzo, but long drum solos bore me).

Agree on your worst, disagree on your best. For me, it was SIBLY in '72-'73. That's one of the few songs I think is better live than on record.

In the Evening never seemed right live. It seemed like the pacing was always off when they played it. I would say the same for Hot Dog but that never really fit with Zeppelin. That song was meant more to show their humor like D'yer Mak'er and probably shouldn't have been played live.

Best live songs were Stairway, Dazed, Moby Dick/Drum Solo, Black Dog, Since I've Been Loving You, and Heartbreaker. I'm sure I forgot some.

Misty Mountain Hop Live sucks. No matter what era I hear it. It just sound sloppy. The studio one is the best.

The Ocean sounds sexy live, the studio one sound light weight.

Best: No Quarter 73-75

Worst: In the Evening

Funny about my choices... I absolutely hate the studio version of NQ, but the live versions always seem to be awesome (though they started getting a little too damn long). As for In the Evening, I love the studio version of this song, but every live version I've heard of it sounds hollow.
