Led Zeppelin: The Forum, Inglewood, California

Todd Everett, Phonograph Record, August 1972

WHAT BETTER WAY for Led Zeppelin to begin their three-and-a-half hour onslaught on the eardrums than with a crash of the drums? Not a "Hi, we're Led Zeppelin," mind you. Not ten minutes of tuning up. Not even a disc jockey or the promoter's son doing a warm-up.
