Comments
Recorded at The Forum at Inglewood, LA on 21st June 1977. It's a Mike Millard recording and well up to his usual standards.

As the label listing above shows, this has had multiple reissues. There are another four or five labels who released under this title and another half dozen or so who released this gig with a different title (Absence, California Hills, The Forum, LA Forum, LA The First Night, Mike The Mike, On The Whispering Wind) and there's a DVD versions as well - Watch And Listen To This Eddie.

In terms of the audio releases, the one variant is whether Moby Dick is on disc two or disc three.

The title? It's dedicated to Eddie Van Halen, who'd been shooting his mouth off too much in the press at the time!

I don't have this show, but I've heard it and have been looking for a copy for a long time. Absolutely fantastic, both in terms of sound and performance. A crystal clear audience tape of what is, in my opinion, the best Zeppelin performance from the 1977 North American tour and what must be one of their top 5 all time performances.

Maybe Zep were past their prime in 1977, but they pulled a few absolute gems out of the bag. This is one of them! The atmosphere is electric, John Bonham is on fire and Jimmy Page energetic. A must have for any Zep fan!!!!

Recorded by the late, great bootlegger Mike Millard (a.k.a. "Mike the Mic").

Millard recorded many LA Forum shows from about 1974-75 to 1980.
These also included Yes, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones (Who Went To Church This Sunday...?), Wings (Wings Over Los Angeles), but mostly Led Zeppelin.

Millard also recorded Led Zeppelin at the Long Beach Arena in March 1975.

Millard had the incredible idea to pretend he was handicapped, and used a wheelchair for hiding his recording equipment.
He used a Nakamichi deck with Sennhieser shotgun microphones to record in stereo, with the deck hidden under the chair.
In this way, he also got much closer to the stage and usually captured a great show.
His recordings are some of the finest audience recordings known.

Millard especially loved recording Led Zeppelin.
Rumor has it, that Millard died tragically from suicide about 1990.
Many people have tried to contact his family in efforts to obtain his master cassette recordings.
His surviving family is very private and have not released his large inventory of recordings.
He basically recorded most rock shows at the LA Forum from about 1974-75 to 1980.

This show is in incredible sound, and a fantastic performance by the band.

Another timeless classic.

This is one of the all-time great Zeppelin boots and one of my favorite bootleg sets of any band. I find myself frequently pulling this one out for a listen.

By 1977, LA had long been established as one of the band's fondest homes away from home, and this was the opening night of a six-night stand. The enthusiasm and euphoria between the crowd and the band is evident right from the start and maintained throughout the evening. The less-than-perfect but still excellent audience recording makes you feel like you’re there and captures the atmosphere wonderfully.

The opening string of songs (despite a brief guitar problem) is like a tidal wave, the acoustic set is warm and energetic, the band seemingly doesn’t want to stop playing “Kashmir”, and even answers repeated calls for “Heartbreaker” by offering a devastating version not as an encore but by adding the unscheduled piece to the middle of the set list! Just a great show!

To me this string of LA Forum shows from the 1977 Tour represents the last really good shows Zeppelin performed. Despite Jimmy's addiction problems at the time (which resulted in some occasional sloppy playing), the band turn in spirited performances and really gel in a way that has been lacking for years in the opinion of this listener.

The highlight of this show for me has to be the killer Bonham drum work in "The Song Remains the Same." Not to be missed.
