Can you imagine how you'd feel today knowing you wiped an early tape of Led Zeppelin?

By this point in time, Led Zeppelin had made it.  Led Zeppelin II was outselling the Rolling Stones and the Beatles. This, their first show of the spring 1970 US tour, drew a crowd of 19,000 in a building with a capacity rated at just over 17,000.

They were so big that the Back to the Clubs tour experience was as crazed as playing at the big venues would have been.  Everyone wanted to get in to see Led Zeppelin and the small clubs just were too small.

Jimmy Page was given a gift of a Les Paul guitar by a fan, but it turned out that the guitar had been stolen. From the accounts of the show, Mr. Page was less than happy when notified during the show that Sea-Tac Airport authorities had confiscated the guitar.
