Cobo Hall, Detroit, Michigan, USA
Friday July 13th, 1973
Excellent Soundboard Recording
Encoded: 320 Kbps MP3
Track List: (Artwork Included)
01. Moby Dick
03. Whole Lotta Love
04. Dancing Days
These are only the last four songs from the show and all that is known to exist from it. Robert's voice sounds really damaged but the band is unreal in Whole Lotta Love and Jimmy's soloing in Heartbreaker is breathtaking. This is the only time Dancing Days was played on the US Tour in 1973 and the last time it was ever played in electric form ... it would show up in the acoustic sections of 1977!
The tape begins with Plant introducing Bonzo as "the only white whale in show business!" prior to Moby Dick. The a cappella solo during Heartbreaker is followed by an impromptu blues shuffle. Page blazes through a sticky-fingered guitar solo during the Boogie Chillen' section in Whole Lotta Love. Plant hints at his Immigrant Song Valhalla cry during the coda. As the band returns to the stage, Plant introduces the first appearance of Dancing Days since 4/2/1973 as "a track about a fetish for fifteen/sixteen year old chicks who seem to wait at bus stops after they come outta high school. -Original
