All thanks goes to "weedwacker" for both Copenhagen 1979 masters and for transferring them and sharing them with us. These two shows, one of which I'm uploading now, are arguably two of the best all-time Led Zeppelin audience recordings in sound quality.
The TDOLZ version, named Copenhagen Warmups, blows my old Silver Rarities version's sound out of the water. Back when I had originally uploaded the TDOLZ Copenhagen Warmups copies I'd stated, "The TDOLZ version is the best sounding versions of either show that I've ever heard". It is still up there at the very top and it is difficult to decide which is better even today. But I am convinced the unaltered master copy being shared here today is the very best I've run across so far. Read underneath the links for more details on why it is the best. But for now, I'm moving on to the show details.

Here are some notes from "weedwacker" on this recording. I'm doing a copy and paste of them from his text file:
Recorded from the floor using an Uher tape deck and Sennheiser mics. This is an excellent audience recording. This is very similar sound-wise to Copenhagen Warmups (TDOLZ) with the exception this is a tad warmer and fuller sounding whereas CW is louder volume wise and a tad flater sounding from it.
The above notes are very true. I looked at the waveform for both TDOLZ's Copenhagen Warmups and this master audience recording. And the recording level on the master tapes is lower than the amplified version released by TDOLZ. I could see why it was amplified by TDOLZ, however, it did not need to be. I do not understand why the amplification causes a flatter sound in the audio, but something does and I know "weedwacker" is a qualified Zeppelin fan capable of determining this. And the master audience recordings definitely are a cleaner and more full sounding final product too.
The amplified version put out by TDOLZ is still superb but the tracks do have a flatter sound. I likely would not have noticed (or known) what the cause of the slight sound difference was had I not read "weekwacker's" notes. But without any doubt in my mind, this unaltered master recording is the best of them all.
Enjoy the show...
