Now of course in 1969, Led Zeppelin had not yet acquired their legendary status. However,while sitting on that stage, some of those fans must of realized they they were witnessing the birth of a group that would become one of the most loved rock bands in history. The band opened with “Communication Breakdown,” and then shifted gears into the opening bass line of “Dazed and Confused.” After the epic performance of “Dazed,” the band performed “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You.” The band closed the set with “How Many More Times.” While watching the video, it s is a sheer joy to see how much Robert Plant was enjoying singing those songs. For so many years, all we have witnessed is Plant trying to distance himself from those days. It is truly wonderful to find clips like these that show how dear the band was too Plant in the early years.
The 1969 performance was included on the Led Zeppelin DVD box set that was released in 2003. It was a box set of live Led Zeppelin performances in the best quality that fans had even seen of vintage Led Zeppelin performances.
