THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME
|2||8:08||THE ROVER intro/SICK AGAIN
Well good evening. I mean, good evening! Well we finally did it. Haven't seen you since, uh, anybody here when we played with Bad Company? That was the first time that we ever managed to get back on stage again. So tonight, oh, sweet smell, tonight no beating around the bush. We're just gonna play cause that's what we're here for.
|3||7:44||NOBODY'S FAULT BUT MINE
Thank you very much, ta. It is indeed, uh, our great pleasure to be back in California, for many many reasons. Among those it's very hard to see the sun in a place bigger than New York. This is a song about, um, well it's not even worth telling you what it's about, you know.
|4||7:05||OVER THE HILLS AND FAR AWAY
Well that was a song that, uh. That was a song that speaks for itself. This is a song that comes from what you might call the urban blues of the United Kingdom. It's a song that you probably already know, but it's a song that is very close to all of us in the band from time to time,
|5||10:30||and things like that.
SINCE I'VE BEEN LOVING YOU
We'd like to welcome back to the world John Bonham who had a terrible, uh, fit of food poisoning. Welcome back, John Bonham. He ate far too many rhinestones. That, by the way, featured Jimmy Page on guitar. How 'bout then? It's really nice to be back in the sun. So, if all we gotta do to go down well is say Jimmy, Jimmy. Something a little harder then. We're gonna feature a very, uh, very warm friend of ours who's often playing with the band these days. John Paul Jones on keyboards. 'No Quarter.'
John Paul Jones, grand piano. [fade cut @ 29:10]
|1||12:13||Oh boy, that certainly moved along a little bit. So, uh, we found ourselves in a, hang on a tic, we found ourselves in a position of, some-what, forced, uh, stalemate for about two years. A sort of physical stalemate which was not very, you know, it was a bit frustrating. So, when we started to rehearse with a view to travelling the world and seeing many hotels we thought, hah, we thought what we'd do is we'd look back through some of the old material and some of the material that we ha, hang on, hold it, wait a minute, I didn't say Jimmy. Through some of the, uh, material that we, we'd had to ignore because of the, the fact that we're a four piece band, and Jonesy most kindly went out and bought a three-necked instrument which has since then has often hurt his back in many a hotel. So with the aid of Jonesy's three-necked instrument we're gonna try a thing from Physical Graffiti called 'Ten Years Gone.'
TEN YEARS GONE [source change @ 6:40, 6:57]
Well that's, thank you very much, ta. As senility creeps in and we reach the age of twenty-five, we decided to do something that we haven't done for years and years. You know what I mean, Bonzo? Way back in 1971, when we came to Los Angeles, we used to sit down and play some of the stuff that we, um, we found came around from our dealings in the Welsh mountains and the Scottish highlands, and it was called an acoustic set, and this brings a rather warm vibe, and it brings a man who had a very bad stomach complaint to the front of the stage, John Bonham, John Henry Bonham. Come on! The rhinestone cowgirl. I guess he's, he's the cowgirl in the sand.
|2||7:35||THE BATTLE OF EVERMORE
Sorry, just discussing some arabic. Um, this next song, uh, I guess we should dedicate to a lot of good friends that we've met along the way. Some are going back to New York tomorrow. Dear Danny, we'll miss you so much. You and your American Express card. Ha ha! Um, lots of good people that we've met, especially the people who made us write this song. Wow. .... Fortunately the guy who tunes Jimmy's guitars comes from Scotland, and he always tendsw to tune them in Scottish, which is, uh, alright for some.
|3||5:41||GOING TO CALIFORNIA
(Sometimes it's terribly hard.) I wonder if she still lives there. (Hang man, hang man. Hold it a little while.) To be continued.
|4||1:48||BLACK COUNTY WOMAN/|
Uh, that was called 'Kashmir.' Ahh. Let me take you there. Trouble with the musical equipment up here. [fade cut @ 10:19]
|1||18:52||Ahh. Let me take you there. Trouble with the musical equipment up here. Right now, the man who fought, the man who fought against the elements. The man. The man who, who fought food poisoning. The man who drinks Heineken. The man who doesn't get out of bed. The man who hasn't got a cymbal. The man who's having a chat with his man who knows the man who tunes Jimmy's guitar who comes from Scotland, and doesn't know the man they call Tim, but does know Audrey from Dallas. Thank you. Shh, hang on. The man who now learns how to construct his own drum kit. The man who's not very professional. Shut up, wait a bit, shhh. The man who said he could go back to a building site anytime, and we all agreed. The man who's holding up the show. The rhinestone cowgirl. Come on, Bonzo, get on with it. That's what the quaalude stagger is. The man who played the Los Angeles Aztecs and beat them 10-1 by himself. The man who, one wonders, is he worth waiting for, and doesn't really realize there's a curfew here. A childhood friend. A man who many people once said, never heard of him, John Bonham. Over the Top!
OUT ON THE TILES intro/MOBY DICK
John Bonham! John Bonham!! John Henry Bonham. John Bonham! Come on!
|3||16:42||GUITAR SOLO (incl STAR SPANGLED BANNER/DIXIE)/|
|4||10:37||ACHILLES LAST STAND
'Achillies Last Stand', at least we thought. We seem to be going through mic stands at an amazing rate. Showco's, uh, Plastic Mic Stands Incorporated. It's very nice to see some friends just arrive from England, Mr Phil Carson. A man who's played bass in Japan with Dusty Springfield a long time ago. You see, we know all the oldies. All the push, ..., ha ha! Well there's no doubt you picked up by the atmosphere at least on stage tonight, it's, it's like sort of the highpoint of the whole tour to be back here. And that's, maybe after six nights it will not be so easy to say that, but at the moment, we'd like to, uh, uh, we give you this song.
|5||13:03||STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN
LA! Thank you very much. You've been extremely nice. Good night.
|6||1:36||WHOLE LOTTA LOVE/|
|7||4:40||ROCK AND ROLL
Oh? Just like a good woman. Good night. [fade cut @ 4:34]
