This is Led Zeppelin’s first ever Television performance on their second tour of Scandanvia and two weeks before the release of their debut album Led Zeppelin I, Jimmy Page had a selection of guitar effects and the violin bow , the mics on John Bonhams drums you can hear every fill in his drumming, Robert Plant charisma really shines through sound quality is excellent I don’t understand why this could not be made commercially released with re mixing the sound and restoring the visuals, its television history for sure. What is surprising watching this superb concert is the audience’s lack of response to Zeppelin’s fully charged performance. They sit listening intently showing little enthusiasm for what they’re hearing. For guitarist Jimmy Page this sort of apathy was part of the appeal of launching his newly formed band in Scandinavia:

Recorded at the Danmarks Radio Studios, Denmark for TV Byen/Denmark Broadcasting Corporation on March 17, 1969, Led Zeppelin ripped through a stunning setlist of their early favorites: “Communication Breakdown,” “Dazed and Confused,” “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You,” and “How Many More Times.”

Impressive, powerful and tight—it is an early example of Led Zeppelin at their best.
