Review(s)
 
This performance in this show is rather mediocre compared to others during this era and also married with rowdy audience and equipment problems. After a rather flaccid We're Gonna Groove, where Plant's microphone cut out half way through the song, he apologizes and explains: "We've only had this PA for three nights." The PA cuts out again several times in the show. Since I've Been Loving You was dropped from the set list and the organ solo is very short. How Many More Times contains a sharp version of Ravel's Bolero and That's Alright and My Baby Left Me are played together (makes sense since they are the same song). Plant tries all night to get the crowd "loose" and they do when they play their hit Whole Lotta Love (probably what most of the audience came to hear).
