The first disc of the Led Zeppelin DVD
is a record of their January 9, 1970 performance at the Royal Albert Hall. [A must-hear, btw.]
During the oldies-medley section of "How Many More Times", Plant - while encouraging a clap-a-long - says to the audience in a knowing tone: "You're going to do it [sex, it seems]
in Birmingham and Cardiff. You're going to do it in Glasgow... and Glasgow needs it."
Why did Glasgow need it - whatever "it" was? Were Glaswegian coal workers suffering in a strike at the time? Did the city have a reputation for being tight-assed?
