Led Zeppelin at Wolfgang’s Vault

Here’s some Led Zeppelin for us old coots at KUR from the second set of that final show (April 27) of their legendary four night run of shows at San Francisco’s Fillmore West in April, 1969, via Wolfgang’s Vault, before their massive success eliminated the possibility of their ever performing in such intimate venues again.

Howlin’ Wolf’s “Killing Floor” kicks off the set, the song that would provide the basis for “The Lemon Song,” which was recorded in Los Angeles for Led Zeppelin II during this American tour. Switching to his Danelectro, the folk song “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You,” continues the mellower flavor of this set, before Page settles into a Yardbirds number, “White Summer.” The unreleased rarity, “Sitting and Thinking” is up next, followed by Plant’s typical introduction of John Bonham for “Pat’s Delight” (the song that eventually morphed in “Moby Dick“). They close this final night with a rendition of “Dazed and Confused.”

An excellent example of early Led Zeppelin. Click here to listen to the set.

Led Zeppelin is:

Robert Plant – vocals

Jimmy Page – guitar

John Paul Jones – bass

John Bonham – drums
