The recording is slightly distorted as per many of the audience recordings of the time. Make no mistake about it, what you are hearing is Led Zeppelin at the very top of their game. Tonight's set kicks off with a bombastic Immigrant Song, crushing the audience with it's immense volume. A superb Heartbreaker follows, complete with a compact guitar solo. This concert is a must for any Robert Plant fan. He gives the show 110% and the unbelievable power of his amazing high pitched vocals is evident right from the start. A full-on version of Black Dog complete with a mistake in the first instrumental passage. For a long time, we have all wondered what the first ever public performance of Stairway To Heaven must have been like. Well, wonder no more for now it can be heard. Zeppelin finish the main set with a compact Whole Lotta Love medley. Rock And Roll is another preview, played at a frantic pace.
