Houses of the Holy has my favourite opening three track sequence of any of their albums even though I didn't give it a vote.

II probably should have got my vote over III but like others have noted above I'm a little burnt out on it, not helped by my older brother playing many of the riffs from that album on his guitar over and over again for days on end when I was growing up :lol: I shouldn't hold that against the record though, which is great of course.

IV, I, III. It may be an unfashionably obvious choice, but Zoso is to my mind pretty perfect.


I still have a LOT of time for II and HotH, PG a step behind.

It may be a bit uneven but Houses of the Holy has my favorite Zeppelin moments. Over the Hills, Song Remains the Same, Rain Song, No Quarter.

The thing about Page is his ability to switch from rhythm to lead and back and sometimes it even sounds like he's playing both at the same time.
I've heard bands with three guitarists not sound as full - plus he's a great acoustic player.

The live version of the Song Remains the Same is just phenomenal.

Robust stuff

It always amuses me when some folk put Bonham and Moon on the same level.

What utter nonsense

I love Houses of the Holy, but like Pool Hall Richard, I made my own version of the album, which didn’t go down well here.

It’s the only way I listen to it now, though.

I agree with your views re: Page.

Only the one show - May 31st.

It's a good show but not the best from that first part of the tour (where they really were on fire). The best LA show was 3rd June - featuring a huge "Thank You" to finish the show. If you saw that show, you were very fortunate. Here's the whole thing - as with all the audience recordings from LA that year, the levels settle down after a couple of songs and they're highly enjoyable after that. Normally known as "Three Days After"....



The 31st show (which is indeed the "Bonzo's Birthday" bootleg) is also widely available.



If you can remember if the show finished with "Thank You" or "Communication Breakdown" you'll know which show you attended.
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything.
When I was a kid, I inhaled. Frequently. That was the point.

Wow, thanks for posting. I’m pretty sure they ended with “communication breakdown” at the show I saw. Thank god for bootlegs! Zep in 73! Holy fuck what a band.
