Review(s)
 
A really good, but uptight and confused gig. The show starts with an announcement from Robert Plant: "We're sorry about the delay but because we're all a bit stupid, we forgot the bass player's guitar! Would you believe that! So we're gonna open up without the bass player. We're gonna feature Jimmy Page. This is a thing that was very popular when he was with The Yardbirds." After a nice early version the band breaks into an extremely powerful The Train Kept A Rollin'. Then the show starts properly and is excellent, except they forget to play Dazed And Confused before the last song ... so they insert it in the middle of How Many More Times! A blistering show where the audience's reaction would mirror mine were I there: "Who gives a shit about the Butterfly?" This was an opening slot for Iron Butterfly ... and indeed who does give a shit?

master?   47   aud   1st set. Cannot be sure if master really exists. It has the 50 seconds of tape at the beginning and contains more tape hiss, speed is correct or maybe a bit slow and there is slight sound increase at the end of I Can't Quit You Baby as it was taken from d
2nd gen   46   aud   1st set, cassette (missing the 1st minute of introduction)
3rd gen   46   aud   1st set, cassette (this has the 1 minute at the beginning, was traded as a 2nd recorder but it there is any reason to justify that claim, the sound quality is worse than the other gens though and it's a bit more muffled)
4th gen   46   aud   1st set
