Track 10 is a speed-corrected version of the track featured on the “First Flash Of Eden” bootleg. Track 11 is simply a mono mix of Track 10 [Ed: It is in stereo instead of mono]. According to Greg Shaw, who supposedly transferred the original tape, there is a possibility that the recording attributed to this date may actually be from one of The Doors’ December performances at the Family Dog in 1967.

Though the “First Flash Of Eden” bootleg states that this song is from The Doors appearance at the Denver University Student Union the night before (September 29, 1967), Shaw claims that this song is all that survives from an entire reel recorded at the Family Dog and that it was the last song performed that night.

What leads some credence to the bootleg label, however, is that The Doors’ performance at Denver University was professionally filmed for an ABC-TV special called “Bruce Morrow’s Music Power.” A few months later, in November 1967, ABC chose to air only one song from that night in the special. Which song did the network broadcast? “Light My Fire.” To date, no recording of that television special has surfaced, leading some to wonder if this song could actually be from that program. - Porsche

  8. This is a tough one Derrick. I’ve seen both bands 5x in the 70’s. This is too close too call but because I’m such a Jimmy Page fan I give it to the mighty Zeppelin. I wish Page would tour but who knows. He will be the only rocker I will go see. Scrub the Stones, Daltry and Townsend, Frampton etc

  9. thanks

  10. Definitely Zeppelin, but pre 73 Zeppelin. For Led Zeppelin fans who probably know this , following their short June 72 tour Robert Plants voice started to change . You can hear the beginning of this during their oct 72 Japan tour and it got steadily worse throughout the remainder of 72 and into 73 when they toured nonstop throughout Europe. By the time they toured the US in spring / summer 73 Plants voice was shot .

    By Bill on Aug 20, 2019

  11. 1975 Roberts voice was still pretty bad even though their huge US tour was successful. By 77 the voice had gotten better but he never got back the range he had in 68 thru 71

    By Bill on Aug 20, 2019

  12. Roger Daltry wasn’t quite the singer that Plant was pre 72 but he was very close . He maintained his voice much longer though so maybe that gives him the edge career wise . Too me The Ox Entwhistle was rocks best bass player but because he also played keyboards JPJ was the better overall musician. Bonham gets a slight edge over Moon and Page blows away Townsend.

    By Bill on Aug 20, 2019

  13. These kinds of discussions were common in the 70s when Rock was king . Young people today wouldn’t know who Jimmy Page is

  14. as we all know Jim’s dad started the vietnam war - so what have we here - come on baby light my fire - more weaponised lyrics from somebody who couldn’t even play an instrument and was a nobody before turning up with the doors with a load of songs - damn hippies

    By zebedee on Aug 20, 2019

  15. Thanks Big O - thought this might be challenge as I collect Doors’ boots and ROIOs and what d’ya know you’ve turned up trumps again and I didn’t have this one despite it being a smattering of rarities only from the Murray The K show plus
    Thanks it’s appreciated

  17. God ‘ I have had wet dreams about Jim Morrison since I was a little girl . Knowing now that his prick was huge just adds to the legend. God I wish had been born earlier. I would have fucked his brains out.

  18. thanks Big O for this

    By Leigh Palfrey on Aug 20, 2019

  19. I agree Bill. I was fortunate to see Zep in 1970, 71, 73 and Plant sounded like he did on the albums. Thankfully, I never saw them when his voice was hoarse. You gotta respect Daltrys’ voice though. Singing Tommy all these years and doing the scream on Wont Get Fooled Again and I’ve never his voice get hoarse the way Roberts voice changed

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 21, 2019

  20. I’ve never heard his voice get hoarse the way Roberts voice changed

    By THE ANTICHRIST on Aug 21, 2019

  21. I had read somewhere that Plant got a throat infection sometime in 72 and instead of resting his voice toured anyway. That winter tour in late 72 , early 73,throughout Europe was grueling and by the 73 US tour it was shot . You can hear his voice start to lose it on that oct 72 Japan tour . I have bootlegs of that tour . He should have rested it then but too much money and tour commitments were at stake .

  22. You’ll be uploading those boots to which sites then? Or will you just continue telling everyone else that they should upload zeppelin boots?

    By Bossman on Aug 21, 2019

  23. Led Zep didn’t need an audience such was the preening self-regard of the mediaeval princelings in the group - whilst the Who’s gigs were the epitome of the ethos some wag summarised as “You are the music - we’re just the band”.
