Led Zeppelin – Touch & Go

Posted: July 1, 2015 in Vinyl

Touch & Go is a complete hit or miss in terms of sound quality, even for a bootleg. Side A is a fantastic listen, but half of Side B is utter garbage. The first six songs (which span both sides) are from one concert, which was recorded in Toronto on April 4, 1971. The remaining songs are a mish mash of sources with sound ranging from rusty nails on a chalk board to a bleating boat. There is also crowd noise, introductions to the band and songs from Robert Plant as well. Some bootlegs edit out the crowd noise pre and post song and also edit out stage banter, this is not one of those bootlegs.

This boot was only pressed on black vinyl, with pressing info nowhere to be found, again, not untypical for a bootleg. This also was not released on a label, or at least one that wants to be acknowledged even if it’s an illegitimate business operation. There are no label markings anywhere. Here is the track listing:

Side A:

  1. Stairway To Heaven
  2. Celebration Day
  3. That’s The Way

Side B:

  1. Going To California
  2. What Is And What Should Never Be
  3. Moby Dick
  4. Sunshine Woman
  5. Train Kept Rollin’
  6. When The Levee Breaks
