Led Zeppelin: Flowering Jimbert, Royal Albert Hall, June 29, 1969

From a review in New Musical Express: 

In one way, they appear to be fighting each other for dominance, in another they become as one but in the final analysis they serve to haul each other onto greater and greater heights. Plant, with shoulder length blond curls, employs his voice as a fourth instrument. Page, a contrast with shoulder length black hair, evens the score by using his instrument as an extra voice. The result at low key is fascinating; at its high devastating.

‘I met Patti backstage and we hung out and talked as I took photos. Patti was trying on different hats and scarves, finally saying, ‘Do you think we’ve got it?’ I said, ‘We’ve got some nice images so far, but what I think they’re really looking for is a portrait.’ Patti walked into the bathroom and standing next to the toilet she asked, ‘How is this for a portrait?’
