This show has something to it that may be a first also. I'll have to research it, but this may be one of the very first times "Whole Lotta Love" was played live? I can't recall hearing it in any other San Francisco 1969 shows prior to this one. I'll double check though.

It's interesting to see "As Long As I Have You" so late in the set. This one was usually an early number within the first three to four songs at most. But not always. And speaking of "Whole Lotta Love" being a rarity in the show a little while ago, the song is not even listed on the Black Swan label's artwork. It definitely is on the second CD and is the last track. And it definitely was played in this April 26th show too and it is not an added track from some other show used as a space filler like labels sometimes add either.
I really love the sound of Smokestack Lightning. There may be better sounding versions of this show out there. The KRW_Co 1st generation transfer with no EQ work is a very, very nice and clean transfer and may be my favorite. And the dadgad 1st generation transfer (not the 1st generation transfer remaster) is a close second to my ears. But Black Swan so far takes the cake on the label versions I've listened to today. And I do think it is a show any Zeppelin fan will like.
I hope you enjoy the concert...
