Led Zeppelin's Dancing Days in Dallas

Been a whole lotta Led Zeppelin boots circulating in the wake of last week's reunion concert -- like this one from Earl's Court Arena in London (May 25, 1975) and this one from Paris in '69 and the complete BBC Sessions from 1971 (all of it essential, most notably "That's the Way"). Popping up today: the second of Zep's March '75 shows at the Dallas Convention Center, which is to say, the former Dallas Memorial Auditorium. Can't attest to its quality. Not yet.

Which also gives me a reason to link to Led Zeppelin's official site -- which contains detailed info about all six of the band's Memorial Auditorium shows, from its March 28, 1970, debut to its April Fool's farewell in 1977. Featured amongst the goodies: ticket stubs, T-shirts and even local press clips, including one from April 1, 1977, written by Robert Hilburn of the Los Angeles Times. That's the way. --Robert Wilonsky
