Heart – Let Me Roll It – Live – Paul McCartney Cover – Montreal June 14th 2014
Thanx to mojoeric for the upload!

And here’s the 2014 version of Heart ft. Jason Bonham:

Montreal Gazette: “After an intermission, they returned for an eight-song, 50-minute set made up exclusively of Led Zeppelin songs” “Robert Plant would have raised an eyebrow. The singer, in fact, could only have concluded that the legacy of his Zep work couldn’t be in better hands than Wilson’s.” “The highlights of the opening set were, perhaps, the unexpected ones: the obscure, but fascinating, labyrinthine epic Heaven [from “Alive in Seattle! TDHS], with its fascinating shifts from trad-folk drone to prog-rock drama, and an excitedly-received and remarkably faithful version of Paul McCartney’s Let Me Roll It.”

“The Wilsons and their crack band played a standard 75-minute opening set that included their best-loved songs (with the notable exception of Magic Man), and which also included guitarist Nancy Wilson singing lead on a terrific cover of Paul McCartney’s Let Me Roll It. “I learnt the song today,” Nancy said from the stage.

The first standing ovation was for the band’s 1987 massive Number 1 hit Alone. Other highlights – despite the Bell Centre’s typically bad acoustics – were the epic Heaven (never released on a studio album) and the set-closer, Crazy on You, with 60-year-old Nancy Wilson working her trademark cross-legged jump and kick moves like a rocker half her age.” More from this review
