Jimmy Page & The Black Crowes: 07-08-2000 Camden, NJ

Back in 2000, Jimmy Page recruited Sweet Oblivion faves The Black Crowes to join him on tour. They played Led Zeppelin tunes along with a few Crowes songs and a smattering of covers. I was fortunate enough to catch one of those shows when the group played in nearby Camden, NJ.

It was amazing to hear the Led Zeppelin songs live with three guitarists and a keyboardist. When Zep took the stage back in the day, Page was the lone guitarist playing an interesting mishmash of the layered parts he'd recorded in the studio. To hear all of the recorded layers played with the energy of a live performance was a real treat. Some said Page's playing on this tour was the best of his career. That's up to folks who've listened to many more hours of live Zep than me to decide. I'm content to enjoy this snapshot of a magical moment in rock history when Page managed to find a band talented and ambitious enough to bring the spirit of Led Zeppelin back to life for a summer.

for my money this is a better gig than the one released on "creek".
Thanks for sharing...

I don't suppose there is any chance of you re-upping this? Perhaps in celebration of the proposed Led Zep reunion gig in London towards the end of the year.

Many thanks for all the blogging. It's a great way to find new music beyond favourites like the Crowes...
