It Makes Me Wonder No More

Listening to Led Zep boots today and had a few observations:

1. Robert Plant cracks himself up. Listening to a ‘77 show and in “Stairway” he says, “Does anyone remember forests?” and then giggles.

2. The reason there is so little official live Zep out there is that Jimmy Page’s shit to gold ratio is pretty heavy on the shit side. Bum notes everywhere and always, but then he’ll rip a line out of the ether that is just stunning and magical.

3. “Achilles Last Stand” is rarely less than mind-blowing, show after show, year after year. So good.
