January 29th, 1975 show in Greensboro, North Carolina. Is this the worst ever?? Listening to this show, one is reminded John Paul Jones' quote in the introduction to The Concert File: "At our worst we were still better than most. At our best we could just wipe the floor with the lot of them. It was just a very good live band." One can be charitable when listening to this show, and understand the state of the band in the opening weeks of the 1975 U.S. tour. The beginning of the show is very sluggish, and Plant's voice is very poor. But the show does liven up with an excellent Trampled Underfoot. How Many More Times is not that bad at all. It is a very literal 1969 reading except for the Dazed And Confused call and response section played BEFORE the violin bow. But Page impresses the crowed with his very fast riffs. Stairway To Heaven is very good (as with all of the 1975 shows), and the encores are also very strong. This title is definitely recommended. The tape is a bit distant, but very clear and powerful.
