Official video for ‘Immigrant Song’ by Led Zeppelin. This version of Immigrant Song serves as a wonderfully evocative bridge between the early, understated Zeppelin of the Albert Hall era and the full-blown grandeur their performances would assume throughout the rest of the seventies.
The visuals and the soundtrack of this live performance of are a digitized ‘mash’ of two separate performances: the film footage taken from the band’s performance at the Sydney Showground in Australiam in February 1972; the music from a Long Beach Arena show, in Los Angeles, in the summer of 1972.
“The fourth album had just come out and we were on a roll. Even though the visuals and soundtrack are from different performances, the energy that comes across is palpable.” – John Paul Jones.
