Review(s)
 
A really great, vibrant recording of an absolutely riotous show! After the sluggish start of the 2nd leg of the tour, things have been heating up and this show is definitely a fine example! The crowd's way into it and the band overplay themselves by giving one of the most visceral, savage concerts ever! The machine of Page, Jones and Bonham is beyond description, especially in the immense Dazed And Confused with its very long and eerie bow solo and amazing interplay in the middle. No Quarter is also funky and hard and Jimmy gives us one of his longest and best solos linking Misty Mountain Hop and Since I've Been Loving You. Heartbreaker begins with Bonham pounding all hell out of his kit and the ending numbers are a joy to hear, especially how Robert controls the crowd. His voice has been powerful and savage this whole show.
