There aren’t so many early sound sources, so an approximate fan will call 1969 together as “early,” but the same 1969 summer American tour is already the third North American tour for Zeppelin. By this time Zeppelin’s overwhelming performance had already spread by mouth-to-mouth, and it was a time when he had received a habit of overcutting the headliner there. This third North American tour, of course, takes place as a regular tour, but it is also known that many festival appearances were organized within the same tour. The Texas Pop Festival on August 31 where the sound board sound source is left will be the representative. This work has recorded the Cleveland concert on July 20 from this North American Tour in the summer of 1969. The title “DESTROYER” originates from the city of Cleveland, as you know.

The concert of this period is not a big one seen in later years, and it is a show of about one hour and the set list is fixed to some extent. As irregular songs, “What Is And What Should Never Be” was recorded on July 11 and August 21, and “Your Time Is Gonna Come” was recorded on July 14. Unfortunately, the sound source has not seen the eyes of the sun. In that respect, the July 20 Cleveland performance of this work is a thing of a typical 1969 summer tour in terms of a set list. However, he rushes down “The Train Kept A Rollin ‘” and then suddenly cools down “I Can’t Quit You”, followed by chaos “Dazed And Confused” followed by Jimmy’s solo “White Summer”. If you think of it, Robert’s solo “You Shook Me”, Shime becomes a dense concert whose density of Zeppelin is condensed in only 6 songs with the long “How Many More Times”. There is. Even though it is a CD disc with a length that fits into a single disc, it feels as if it was full of listening to a full show for three hours.

July 20, 1969 Completely recorded Cleveland performance with high sound quality. It is a typical show of 1969 years. The venue was a circular stage used in the circus, a special place with a seating area surrounding it. A lot of photos are left, such as Jimmy, who wears a short sleeve and almost everyday clothes, and Robert, who is dressed in a rare white-white prince costume, in a hot short sleeve, so while listening to this work, the photo of the back jacket I hope you can imagine the situation of the day while watching. A permanent press with beautiful picture and disc specifications. Japanese band included.


この時期のコンサートは後年に見られる長大なものではなく、約1時間強のショウで、セットリストもある程度固定されている。イレギュラーな曲としては、7月11日と8月21日に「What Is And What Should Never Be」が、7月14日には「Your Time Is Gonna Come」が演奏されたと記録されているが、残念ながら音源は陽の目を見ていない。その点、本作の7月20日クリーブランド公演は、ことセットリストといった点では典型的な1969年サマーツアーのものである。しかしながら、疾走する「The Train Kept A Rollin’」に続き突然クールダウンする「I Can’t Quit You」、混沌の極み「Dazed And Confused」に続きジミーの独演「White Summer」。かと思えばロバートの独演的な「You Shook Me」、シメは長大な「How Many More Times」と、ツェッペリンの多様性がわずか6曲の中に凝縮されているような密度の濃いコンサートとなっている。CDのディスクにして1枚に収まる長さでありながら、まるで3時間のフル・ショウを聴いたかのような充実感に包まれる。
