Review(s)
 
Another of the great 1973 US Tour shows ... from the onset the band is ready to play and they take no prisoners! The show, surprisingly, was followed by a very long announcements: "Led Zeppelin has asked if we can get a few things straight tonight. Nobody around here digs any fireworks - please cool the fireworks. Please also, we have an area right here in front of the stage where we have many optic effects that we need to get off tonight, that we can't have any chance of anybody bumping the stage 'cos it'll completely ruin them. Their show usually runs about one hour and forty-five minutes. If you can keep the fireworks down and keep everything off the front, Led Zeppelin would like to thank you and do about three hours tonight! So, sit back and stay cool and we'll have a long great show this evening!" The improvisations, especially No Quarter and the immensely long Dazed And Confused are fresh and unique and sound very different from anything heard before. The end has very unusual and exciting rhythm structure in Whole Lotta Love and Robert screaming as the band jam on the end of The Ocean.
