Girl: What is one thing you would change about me?
Guy: Your last name
Guy: cause when I'm done with you you'll need to go into a witness protection program.

I’ll probably follow you. My dash is so dead right now.

Plant wrote the song as a tribute to his son, Karac, who died from a stomach infection in 1977 at the age of five. He did the vocals all in one take.

Two very high powered sets with different moods and feels to them. Both feature a band playing with fiery intensity! Robert hits some of the highest screams and is raw emotion, ranging from the primordial wails of How Many More Times and As Long As I Have You to the pain and suffering of Babe I’m Gonna Leave You. The band’s assault is relentless as well. This was the second to last show from the first US tour of 1969. Again, the group ended (?) with Bonham’s drum solo.
The energy is very high during Train Kept a Rollin’, Plant especially seems to be very into it. Page is in good form during I Can’t Quit You Baby, repeating licks until they sound just how he wants them to. Plant introduces Dazed and Confused as “a thing off the album, that’s currently doing pretty well, apparently.” Plant sings a line from Sugartime just as Page is finishing the bow solo.
Page is again repeating licks ad nauseam during Killing Floor to hypnotizing effect. Plant sings a bit of Walter Davis’s I Think You Need a Shot, ending with the line “I want you to roll over baby, see what it’s like on the other side.” The band breaks into a funky jam just before the final guitar solo. Plant’s voice is on the brink of breaking from the strain during Babe I’m Gonna Leave You. Page duels with both Plant and Bonzo in the middle of How Many More Times before a funky Roll Over Beethoven jam. Unfortunately, there is a cut in the tape during the bow solo, leaving us without the end of the song.
There is chatter coming from the audience during White Summer/Black Mountain Side. A high energy version of As Long as I Have You starts with an erratic guitar intro. Plant is screaming wildly, improvising lyrics about “Detroit city.” Another duel has Plant squealing before Bonzo and Jones join in for a full band battle. Plant loses himself in the outro and has to stop to regain his composure before finishing the song. Plant is shredding his voice during You Shook Me, almost losing it completely by the end of the song. Bonzo is introduced as “a friend of Che Guevara” before Pat’s Delight finishes the recording.
