12/30/1968 Spokane, WA Zeppelin Digital Vol. 5
Train Kept a Rollin', I Can't Quit You Baby, As Long as I Have You, Dazed and Confused, White Summer/Black Mountain Side, How Many More Times, Pat's Delight
I Can't Quit You Baby seems a bit rushed. Bonzo is on fire during As Long as I Have You. His drumming is very aggressive, especially during the Fresh Garbage section. Plant hits an amazingly high note on the final "long". Bonzo continues attacking the drums during Dazed and Confused, the last verse is played at breakneck speed. Another fierce attack on the drums in How Many More Times. Plant is hitting the highest notes Page can throw at him. The intro to Pat's Delight is lightning-fast and has a great funky groove, the solo itself is an attack on all fronts. Plant and Bonzo are the standouts of this show.
The tape is a bit overloaded with some hiss, but is surprisingly clear and enjoyable. I've had this show for nearly ten years, but never really gave it a good listen. This is an under-appreciated gem.
