How Many More Times
The earliest concert showcase number
for Led Zeppelin was the fantastic finale of Led Zeppelin I from early
1969. "How Many More Times" is based on a pile of other tracks, including
bluesman Howlin' Wolf's "How Many More Years?", as well as Page's Yardbirds
arrangement of "Smokestack Lightning", Booker T and MG's "The Hunter",
a 1968 track by Plant and Alexis Korner called "Steal Away", and even Ravel's
"Bolero". Dispensing with some of the bombast of the studio cut, The Levee
goes for more of the flavor of live performances of the song, which were very frequent
from the earliest days of the group until its replacement with "Whole Lotta
Love" as the medley number. "How Many More Times" reappeared twice
during the legendary Japanese tour of 1971 and then again in 1975 as Page nursed a broken
finger. It was then resurrected for the 1998 Page and Plant tour, and was a crowd
favorite night after night.
