Led Zeppelin was a great band.

They made killer albums and had a great live show.

They gave 4 hour concerts in the 1970's.

Their albums were cutting edge of art and music.

They never cut a bad album from 1969 to 1979.

Even their leftover "Coda" album featured great music.

Led Zeppelin sounded awesome back in the day.

Growing up in the eighties, kids were cool.

They didn't care about The Beatles. It was Zep!

Of course, times change.

Led Zeppelin were the biggest band in the world.

In a lot of ways, much bigger than The Beatles.

Not many kids cared for Beatles by the mid 80's.

It was old.

It's now 32 years later.

Led Zeppelin were way bigger than The Beatles. Ask anybody.

Their albums all rock and they still sound awesome.

Didn't you ever hear Zeppelin's entire catalog?

Their legendary live shows?

"How The West Was Won" CD is from the LA Forum, Long Beach, CA 1972.

God, man...

Led Zeppelin blew away any band around back in the day.

Zeppelin have 11 top 10 albums, most went to #1 or #2 on the billboard.

A lot of these songs I haven't heard Zepplin do.I never heard Blueberry Hill or Cinnamon girl by Zepplin.I figured they would do Good Times Bad Times off their first album and Living Lovin Maid off their second album instead of the cover songs you listed.

I think that was part of what made Zeppelin such a great live band.

They usually would jam in the middle of "Whole Lotta Love"

They'd do different songs within the 25 minute live versions.

Whatever Robert Plant wanted to sing and they would follow it.

"Blueberry Hill" was a title of the classic early Zeppelin bootleg.

But the sound on the newly discovered NY 1970 show is much better.

It's amazing that someone actually recorded this over 40 years ago.

It's from the audience taped from a tape recorder back in the day.

I was 4 years old at that time, so obviously could never see them play.

It's rock history that would've been completely lost to the younger fans.

Hearing it is almost as exciting as being there with these 1970 kids.

Zep's live version of "Whole Lotta Love" was longer than 1 Beatle show!

Just 4 years after The Beatles horrible last "concert" in Candle Stick"

Led Zeppelin stayed in tune for hours and hours...

LOL!

Jealous of Led Zeppelin, Bubba?

They did play very long concerts.

Their albums were well done, every song was great.

Led Zeppelin was the coolest band of the 1970's.

Jimmy Page
Robert Plant
John Paul Jones
John Bonham

Their legendary live shows were recorded, Bubba.

Led Zeppelin let the music speak for itself.

They were never hyped. They toured & kicked butt.

It was all done the hard way by performing live.

I don't think any band has ever matched them.

Hey moron comparing a Led Zepplin concert to a Beatle concert is like comparing an Elvis concert to a Jimi Hendrix show.We all know the Vegas hype that went with those Vegas Elvis shows.Led Zepplin were powerful but not even in same league with the Beatles.They were closer to Deep Purple.I don't care if you like Zepplin better that's your choice but they never had as many top twenty hits as the Fab Four and they still didn't have the same impact even if their live shows were longer and rocked harder.The Beatles popularity comes close to matching Elvis's and Michael Jackson's.I just talking popularity so don't go getting your underwear all twisted in a knot.

Elvis didn't have that much hype in Las Vegas.

He was always asked to come back, wasn't he?

What's wrong with Deep Purple, Bubba?

Led Zeppelin was bigger and made an impact in many ways.

They did it by word of mouth touring between 1969-1980.

Of course, their last tour in America was in 1977.

Peter Grant was Zeppelin's manager, a man modeled from Col Parker.

Only he really loved his band and didn't rip them off.

Albums with no titles, hit singles and Zeppelin sold millions.

Led Zeppelin never had to be a pop band like The Beatles were.

Jimi Hendrix played longer than 30 minutes, didn't he?

BTW, Hendrix's version of Bob Dylan's "All Along The Watchtower"...

Simply amazing. One of the greatest songs in rock history.
