    Yea, sometimes. She comes in here and annoys the **** out of everyone, and then disappears again for a few days.

        Thanksgiving Day, 1976, my friends and I went to the theater to watch that film. We sat in the front row and my most vivid memory was, as we were looking straight up at the screen, my friend saying........"Jimmy Page is God".

        Yes...Yes he was.


        And BTW...that film was actually shot in 1973 and released in 1976.
        I suppose I was around 13 when that came out. We raced to the theatre on banana seat bikes - modified with extra forks on the front wheel, taken from old scrap bikes, to look like choppers. I had not yet been to any actual concert, or even seen a rock music film. We were in awe, for sure.

          As I understand it they weren't really planning on releasing it because they weren't happy with the footage, live or otherwise. However, early 1976 Plant was injured badly in a car accident in Greece, so their upcoming tour was cancelled. The idea was "Well, let's just put the movie out instead"....

          I don't think the dates at MSG in 73 were their best live performances....and the fantasy sequences are laughable at best. However, I think Page's solo on "Since I've Been Loving You" catches him at near his peak.
          Great as they were, there were a lot of really bad live performances - especially by Page. Some say it was the heroin, but I think they were just flat out drunk for many shows.

            Look up "Pencil Neck Geek", it's good stuff. A staple of the Dr. Demento Show.

                              • It's all about the concert footage. The rest is nonsense. It's really about seeing one of the greatest guitar players to ever live, in his prime
