New York 1973 (You have to click through to You Tube to watch.)
Oh **** Yeah!!
The clip shows JP to be the ultimate showman as well as a pretty good guitarist. ;-)
Dig! Yeah that Page fella...he can play a bit.
P.S. I think it's kinda funny how the camera person is clearly infatuated with Plant's "junk". Almost every shot is the "from the feet up" angle.
saw them at the Boston Garden in '73..............wow
Nice Les Paul...
Page's live tone(s) is fantastic.
I strongly suggest to anyone who is a Zeplin fan to get the 2 DVD set that is just called "Led Zeppelin".
It has early footage in it that is MUCH better than their SRTS performances.
I never really realized exactly how good of a guitarist the guy is until I seen that DVD.
There is footage of Mr Page sitting on a chair playing a Danelectro, doing all kinds of amazing open tuning stuff. He is doing stuff that didn't become popular until new age artists started doing the same things on acoustic guitars in the late 80s.
The footage of Page with his Danelectro is from Royal Albert Hall in 1970; "White Summer/Black Mountain Side"
Back then even at the garden the front row was right infront of the stage
no seperation but a couple of feet. So close you heard them playing not not the PA
the song is just a bit out of plant's range (i believe the studio vocals were actually sped up to bring them to pitch, note the slightly odd vocal quality on the album version.)
it's interesting to see page in that era doing a fairly faithful rendition of the album track, rather than the typical long, drawn-out "live version".
That is one of my favorite Zep songs. Page is in total control. That live tone is fantastic. The interaction between him and JB is intense.
