After their triumphant tour of Japan in September and right after the release of the often delayed fourth album, Led Zeppelin did a sixteen date tour of the UK in November and December to end a year of almost constant touring. Only seven tapes exist from this tour and many, like Dundee and London, are of poor to fair sound quality. The Manchester tape featured on Rave On is merely fair in sound quality, just good enough to gain an appreciation of the band’s effort this night. The ”Whole Lotta Love” medley cuts out after eleven and a half minutes and only ninety seconds of the encore “Thank You” was preserved. There are cuts during the tune up to “Going To California,” before “That’s The Way” and a cut by the end eliminates the last few seconds, at 20:45 in “Dazed And Confused” and between each song in the latter part of the show since the taper paused the recorder to conserve his tape.
