Dazed and Confused
Dating all the way back to Led
Zeppelin I, "Dazed and Confused" was first played by Jimmy Page when he
was with the Yardbirds, in an embryonic version entitled "I'm Confused".
Never played the same way twice, the eerie piece was performed at Led Zeppelin's earliest
concerts and continued to be a staple in the set through the 1975 tour. Eventually
the song clocked in at close to 45 minutes in length as Zeppelin improvised the piece into
totally different forms night after night. "Dazed and Confused" is
immediately recognizable by its ominous bass line, one of the most recognizable riffs in
rock. The song was also one of the first to feature Page's signature trick of
applying a violin bow to the guitar, which produces frightening, unearthly tones.
The Levee performs a shorter version of the piece, including the bow solo and highlights
from the many improvised sections heard in the 1972, 1973 and 1975 performances (see page
253 of Luis Rey's latest edition).
Hard-core fans will be happy to hear the inclusion of Buffalo Springfield's
"For What It's Worth", Joni Mitchell's "Woodstock" and Scott
McKenzie's "San Francisco".
