I think Page said that he invented backwards echo and used it for the the first time on You Shook Me on LZ I.

imho: majority of the tommy theme blended the songs into the next song. (kinda like "pepper").

Wiki quote: " Originally understood as an entirely sung piece, in contrast to a play with songs". That is kinda my interpretation of an "opera"
OK, I'll go back and dust off my LP and listen to it!

First use of lasers in concert lighting - ELO, 1978.
Funny how firsts get established and become unchallenged received wisdom even when they're obviously incorrect.

I don't know who may be first but Zeppelin were using lasers as far back as 1975. I think the infamous pyramid was established in 1977 but this is what comes up for 1975.

Further date-verification to show it was used at Earl's Court in 75.
