A wonderful Zeppelin show presented here with the proper track sequence. Beginning as they frequently did in 1970 with We’re Gonna Groove which seems to get the band in a good flow for this show; following is a frenetic version of Heartbreaker with Jimmy Page showing off hot licks with superb fretwork; Since I’ve Been loving You follows with some superb blues power from Jimmy and Robert showing his range during this youthful era of Zep.
John Paul Jones gives a pleasant performance on Thank You followed by What Is and Never Be with Jimmy’s masterful guitar work; then a raucous version of their classic Communication Breakdown as Robert asks the crowd “You Feel Allright”; Whole Lotta Love closes this show with Bonzo showing his abilities and John Paul Jones bass to the forefront of the mix.
The Houston two tracks conclude this show Robert introducing Jimmy Page for White Summer/Blackmountainside; always a favorite with Jimmy playing a splendid guitar solo which is as smooth as a wet hummingbird here! Last is How Many More Times with Neil Young’s Down By The River, Ravel’s Bolero, Buffalo Springfield’s For What It’s Worth, and the Nashville Teens Tobacco Road culminating this marvelous ending this wonderful show!If you liked this review, buy me a cup of joe.
