Review(s)
 
This is the second to last gig from the 1972 part of the UK tour, and an excellent gig in front of an unresponsive and dull audience. "It's a bit warmer than the last gig we managed to pull off - that was at that notorious Wembley place. Well, I think we must install the warmth of our bodies into this place very quickly, before we all freeze! It's always the same - freezing!" Plant told to the audience. Being on rather Christmas spirit, he added later in the evening: "You lucky people. It's getting very close to Christmas and if we were all as straight as we used to be, we should be at the office party now." Jimmy and Jonesy are amazing throughout and Bonzo hammers away. Robert sounds fine, except for his upper range, which is a little rusty. He still has all of the passion and power, as well as a great sense of humour. The sound problems caused that only a half or so fans could heard Led Zeppelin in their best.
