Another great 1972 US show! Plant commented previous night: "That was too much. That was really great!" and his voice is just wonderful and the band once again turns in an excellent performance. Robert's vocals are right up there, singing as high as on the album, and sometimes higher! The medley is great and Jimmy's playing throughout, but especially on Immigrant Song/Heartbreaker, and Since I've Been Loving You, is just mind-boggling. Rock And Roll caps the event after the great medley and Robert's voice is right up there!

master       aud   4th source, runs a bit slow - correct speed is near 101 mins. (master reel to reel), officially released tracks have been left out in such a way that the tracks from "How The West Was Won" can be inserted without losing the flow of the show
