    I don't think it was. If you watch the RAH performance, he plays this way the whole time.

    I don't remember? It's been a while since I've watched that.

    It is blurry, but given the year of the photo it's most likely to be #1. The knobs seem to bear that out as well.

    Having said that, I'm going to throw in the usual disclaimer : I'm partially sighted. :wave:

    Well, I can say within some level of certainty that it's a Les Paul :laugh2:

    Judging by the beards, probably #1.

    BZZZZT

    I spy JPJ in the background playing bass. On MMH he'd be playing keyboard.

    Considering JP has his eyes closed and is in the middle of a flight of fancy and Robert has his mouth closed for once, JP is playing the solo in SIBLY.

    BZZZZZZZT.

    You get the buzzer too.

    That's another song that JPJ would be playing keyboards on, not bass. :naughty:

    That's his number 1 Les Paul. Still using the old "stained glass" strap and both Page and Plant still have a beard. 1970?
    My guess is "whole lotta love". :thumb: (Just kidding, of course :laugh2:)

    Now we are trying to guess what song he is playing just from a picture?! Our OCD has reached dizzying new heights!:laugh2: He could have been playing anything. I must say i'm glad that homeless look they went through in 1970 didn't last. It was cool to see their evolution in stage dress and performance over the years.

    It was one of these songs

    Immigrant Song
    Heartbreaker
    Dazed & Confused
    Bring it on Home
    That's the Way
    Bron-Y-Aur
    Since I've Been Loving You
    Thank You
    What is and What Should Never Be
    Moby Dick
    Whole Lotta Love
    Communication Breakdown

    This picture is from the 21st August performance in 1970 at the Assembly Center in Tulsa.

    Given the setlist, only the mild perspiration on JP and his fingers around the 12th fret, the fact that Plant isn't singing (he look primed to do a quick "push push push" at any time) and the fact that JPJ is on bass, I would say it's the Heartbreaker/Dazed and Confused solo section.

    Wonderful video of Page practicing with the Black Crowes, they all really dig it, it's a load of fun and Rich Robinson is great too!

    In his post Zep days, some of Page's best playing was with Coverdale/Page and the Black Crowes.

    A Page release.... well, albeit as a producer. The signed version is a fairly reasonable way of getting Pagey's autograph, just try and get one of his SoundTracks signed albums, that will run you $1,000's!
