In the wake of all the Led Zeppelin mania this week, I couldn’t help but pull out the self-titled DVD, which features this stunning performance of “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You” off the band’s 1969 debut as a bonus feature. It’s from a rare Danish TV broadcast in front of an audience that had no way of comprehending what was happening in front of it. And despite hoping I didn’t see any of the reunion footage from the other night’s reunion show in London, I couldn’t help but watch all the clips that have surfaced, and it wasn’t even close to a train wreck. In fact, parts were pretty bad ass. And, though, I still think playing without John Bonham is a mistake, at least they kept it in the family. And it sure as hell makes up for that Live Aid debacle.
