Unbelievable Solos From Jimmy Page
Synced With Knebworth Video
Today is the 32nd anniversary of the last truly virtuoso Led Zeppelin concert (in my opinion). On July 23rd and 24th Zeppelin played two gigs at the Falkoner Theater, in Copenhagen Denmark, as a warm up for the huge Knebworth shows the next month (8/4 and 8/11/79).
The first Knebworth show was pretty awesome, but it didn’t reach the levels of fluidity, and virtuosity of the Copenhagen gigs. Jimmy Page plays like it’s 1973 again, and the rest of the band is right behind him.I recently shared the band’s 1971 Copenhagen gig.
This version of Ten Years Gone has been synced to the video of the same same song, from 8/4/79. The sync works almost perfectly. The solos played by Jimmy are exquisite. Not ‘grading on the curve’ or ‘exquisiste for junky Jimmy’. I mean really, truly amazing (especially that descending run at the end of the second solo). 32 years ago today, this song was played marvelously, and you can hear it anytime you want.
