This cover was used recently for a great choreography piece on "So You Think You Can Dance". Very moody.

"I can tell you when I knew we'd broken through, which was at San Francisco. There were other gigs, like the Boston Tea Party and the Kinetic Circus in Chicago which have unfortunately disappeared as venues, where the response was so incredible we knew we'd made our impression—but after the San Francisco gig it was just—bang!"
Jimmy Page quoted from CREEM Magazine May 1974 .
John Paul Jones recalls the show:
As far as I'm concerned, the key Led Zeppelin gig - the one that put everything into focus – was one that we played on our first American tour at The Boston Tea Party. We'd played our usual one-hour set, using all the material from our first album and Page's ‘White Summer' guitar piece and, by the end, the audience just wouldn't let us off the stage.
It was in such a state that we had to start throwing ideas around – just thinking of songs that we all might know or some of us knew a part of, and work it from there. So we'' go back on and play things like ‘I Saw her Standing There' and ‘Please Please Me' – old Beatles favorites. I mean, just anything that would come into our head, and the response was quite amazing.
There were kids actually banging their heads against the stage – I've never seen that at a gig before or since, and when we finally left the stage we'd played for four and a half hours. Peter (Peter Grant – Zep's manager) was absolutely ecstatic. He was crying and hugging us all. You know… with this huge grizzly bear hug. I suppose it was then that we realized just what Led Zeppelin was going to become.””
