Larry - welcome to my world.
I didn’t even realize. Total coincidence, but I spent much of today rewatching the last few movies, and thinking about Harry Potter in general. It’s such a thoroughly good thing. cheers
Monty Python is really important. The world would be a lot worse without the Pythons, who just gave their final performance together. All my love goes out to them.
Other than that, there’s nothing worth saying that’s not all ready said in the song.
Enjoy it; it’s your last chance, anyhow!
Led Zeppelin - Whole Lotta Love
Live at the Royal Albert Hall (1970)
this concert is how I think of Led Zeppelin over all
It begins with a simple “Good evening.” Robert engages with the audience as if they’re playing a cozy jazz club. The showmanship is more subtle here in 1970 than it would later become. They let the music speak for itself. The band is dressed relatively conservatively, including the infamous sweater vest. I’ve always thought this style fit Zeppelin’s deep, intricate sound more than their more decadent look in, for example, The Song Remains the Same. Even the style of filming used brings out the best in them, with the deep shadows and heavy contrast emphasizing their mysticism and joyful moodiness. Their playing is loose and energetic and natural. Most of the concert is made up of characteristic early Zeppelin electrified blues-rock. It’s as if a thunderstorm rolled into the Royal Albert Hall on January 9 1970 (Jimmy Page’s 26th birthday).
It might be my favorite thing on the planet.

This is a vinyl rip of the first pressing of Led Zeppelin II which ran about 200,000 copies, these are sometimes also called the Robert Ludwig mixes. The reason of what makes these mixes special is that the original copies of LZII were EQ’d in a way that, at the time, would skip on a lot of turntables. They then had to remove some of the bass and re-press the album.
This is Led Zeppelin II the way it was meant to be heard.
