To be perfectly honest, I've had a version of this show I got many years ago and listened to a few times. But it had been a long time ago when I got it and a long time ago since I listened to it too. But hearing this huge upgrade from my earlier copy, and even comparing it to some more recent copies various boot labels released, this is a huge improvement over those copies. I'm not sure if it may be a different source or not. I haven't taken the time to compare them all yet. This version is reportedly from a low generation copy and that very well may be the reason it sounds so much better?
Unknown low generation copy (possibly VHS tape in lineage) > speed corrected > remastered (no noise or hiss reduction in editing) > me > TLH > WAV (for lossiness testing) > Audacity (to embed metadata/track titles and info and re-encode as FLAC) > FLAC 6 > TLH (to test for SBE's, recheck final project was error free, and create and verify md5 & ffp files) > you
Notes by dadgad: Comments: very good audience recording, sound improves after "No Quarter" (different tape/cassette?)

I find it interesting the way CD 2 is arranged. With songs like "Moby Dick" coming after "Dazed And Confused" and "Stairway to Heaven" as well as "Heartbreaker" coming before "Whole Lotta Love", well, that wasn't the way the band usually played their setlist. But they obviously changed it up during this July 1973 show.
Since dadgad didn't elaborate on what he did in remastering the tapes he worked with, it's anyone's guess here. But I'm fairly confident (but guessing) he did EQ this version in his remastering job. And he did a great job too.
I hope you enjoy this great night and great recording ...
