In regards to one song I guess for them it was an important song at that time, representing rebirth, reinvention and survival. In the evening was a very memorable song from page and plant in 95 and i am surprised they didnt play it in w the great jpj synth sound I'm no longer worried about a lack of material for the 11th. The 11th has a lot of material to patch in over the 4th. My biggest worry is the soundboard mix 4th vs 11th.
I haven't compared the two later in the concert, but in the beginning, the sound varies:. August 4th: Loud guitar and louder vocals. Bass is nearly in audible. The sub bass frequencies barely even show in the mix.
So far, I've raise the sub bass frequencies, mainly below 90hz. August 11th: Quiet guitar and quieter vocals. The edited version was used for the reissue, but the labels were printed with the unedited running time of In Atlantic Records released a CD-single edited to this time from the original recording of the song. This version charted in the UK where the band had maintained control over single releases during their existence. You've got yearnin' and I got burnin' Baby you look so ho sweet and cunnin' Baby way down inside, woman you need love Woman you need love, you've got to have some love I'm gon' give you some love, I know you need love .
According to Steve Marriott , the group's vocalist and guitarist, Page and Plant attended several Small Faces gigs, where they expressed their interest in the song. Page's riff was Page's riff. It was there before anything else. I just thought, 'well, what am I going to sing? Now happily paid for. At the time, there was a lot of conversation about what to do.
It was decided that it was so far away in time and influence that That's the game. The single entered the Billboard Hot chart on 22 November It remained on the chart for 15 weeks, peaking at no. The song has been widely covered by many artists. It is famous in the United Kingdom for having been the theme music for the long-running television programme Top of the Pops for much of its history.
The C. The song returned as the theme in , this time using a reworked version of the original Led Zeppelin guitar riff.
Tina Turner covered the song for her album Acid Queen.

At about What a day. What a fucking band! The sound was great, the band looked the part and the sheer power from the stage and , watt PA could have launched a Saturn V rocket. I will forever remember my Knebworth with the best of memories and as my best concert ever. No one could touch Led Zeppelin then, nor since. Knebworth was the first and only time I saw the original Led Zeppelin live.
We had just missed out on tickets for the first show, and so ended up with 3 tickets for the second show on 11th August. We all piled into his car on the Friday evening and headed towards Knebworth. Tony unfortunately thought that Knebworth was on the M1, so we ended up having to take a detour at J12, and eventually ended up at the site entrance just off the A1 M J7 at around 10pm.
The site entrance was gridlocked due to thousands of pedestrians and cars arriving. I had never been to any concert before and was only 18 at the time, so this was a whole new experience! We eventually were allowed to drive onto the site. This was after being diverted around the roundabout three times by the Police, who were tightly controlling access to the site.
We then parked up and pitched our tent next to the car, and tried to get some sleep. I can remember what seemed to be a very long walk to the field where the stage was set up.
I had taken a primitive camera and took a few pictures throughout the day. The day itself seemed to be extremely long as there was only 1 band we had come to see!. There was plenty going on to help get through it though. The food was not like at the well organised events these days. The toilets were worse, and were no more than an open pit over which wooden cubicles had been constructed.
The vile smell wafted over us whenever the wind blew from that direction. Then it finally happened. It was like being hit by a sledgehammer! I still remember the excitement whenever I see the bootleg video, although it took me around 13 years before I eventually tracked down a copy. It is so easy these days on the Internet! Tony also swears that he can remember John Bonham taking a running jump and literally jumping over the drum kit, which I have no recollection of at all.

The band's fee for performing was reportedly the largest ever paid to one single act at that time.
In the lead-up to the concerts Led Zeppelin undertook extensive rehearsals at Bray Film studios near London, and attended the venue at Knebworth in order to inspect the site, complete a publicity photograph shoot and perform a soundcheck.
Led Zeppelin played their last ever concerts in the UK at Knebworth, and it was the end of an era for the Knebworth shows. Both concerts overran, noise complaints were received from 7 miles away. The rubbish team struggled to cope with clearing the arena between the shows. For many in attendance it was their first ever concert experience. For many it would be the only time that they would get to see Zeppelin perform live.
For that reason alone it holds a special affection in their live history. The first show in particular, with so much riding on it, was perhaps the most important they ever played. Similarly, music journalist Chris Welch has observed that the audiences "included a whole new generation who had never seen Led Zeppelin in their prime.
The concerts received decidedly mixed reviews. With such a long layoff since their last performances in Britain, and in the wake of the punk rock revolution, Led Zeppelin were now considered to be obsolete in some quarters. Not sure about the Tax thing - it was a bit tough on artists in the 70's with our Dennis, Dear Dennis and The Labour Partys' taxation policies. But it's not as if the UK is a big country.
I am not even sure the band had plans to tour the UK or Europe for that matter from - Knebworth in What a real shame. The Who were the biggest live draw in the world, arguably, from , and still managed to play loads of gigs in the UK. Hell, remember when Zeppelin broke the attendance record in Pontiac in they only beat the Who's record from the same venue in by people So I think it had more to do with the venom of the UK press, as you said, than cash, but cash certainly played a factor, I'm sure The thread I actually started here was how good was the Knebworth August 4th Show???
I am sure there are many threads on this forum re the reasons why the band very rarely toured the UK. Lets not divert from the path and any reviews out there from fans who actually went or do enjoy the penultimate UK show will be very interesting?
The Knebworth shows, for some reason, I have always enjoyed even though as I've gotten older I've realized they weren't great. The first one is pretty close to capturing the magic of or even , but still nowhere near or before Totally agree Zepfanatic.
Personally as good as Knebworth was, I believe that after we had seen and heard the best from the band. I agree is their most overlooked but also best tour ever.
In it was hit or miss I wish the press backlash hadn't been so bad after Knebworth I actually really like the setlist at Knebworth and the Copenhagen warmups, where they bring back Misty Mountain Hop and Celebration DayCD 3: Guitar Solo In The Evening Stairway To Heaven Rock And Roll Whole Lotta Love Heartbreaker. 11 Août - Knebworth Festival, Stevenage, U.K. WELCOME TO THE KNEBWORTH FESTIVAL 11TH OF AUGUST.
