cosmicCosmic America heads for the “IMPORT” section of the record collection, tackling Led Zeppelin’s last live show in the United States in 1975, in Inglewood, CA. This immensely long show (close to 4 hours) is arguably the last time a US audience saw Zeppelin in full fury. It’s a bit of a ragged show in places, but still maintains the grandiose sound and reputation that the quartet had built for themselves. Touring in support of the recently released Physical Graffiti album, this show ended up being a fascinating live showcase for songs from both that album and from Houses of the Holy. If you’re hunting for this show on torrent sites, it’s labeled “Deep Throat”, mostly (entirely?) because Linda Lovelace intros the band when they come out.
