I've had this show for many, many years but not this specific low generation copy. I've probably had this for about two or three years.
The recordings for this show have always suffered from a low volume on Robert Plant's vocals issue. This was a problem at the show and even Robert Plant realized it was occuring because he asks the crowd if they can hear him and they yell back "no". The problem seems to go back and forth between being fixed and not working right again. Plant can be heard. It just isn't as lound as he should be heard. But the concert still sounds excellent and the clarity of Page's guitar and Jones' and Bonham's instruments is excellent. This Hedrick transfer seems to have a better capture of the low end bass than the Doinker transfer and the high end frequencies sound sharper too.
The very end of "Communication Breakdown" is cut off and I imagine the taper likely ran out of tape. Without any information on the gear or tape used, it's hard to say for sure what happened. But if the tape was a 60 minute tape, and especially if the taper had recorded anything else or started recording the show a few minutes earlier than when we hear the show beginning, he would have run out of tape then. The recording is 55:07 long. This is not the end of the show either because "Long, Tall Sally" is also played and was recorded on the source 2 tape for this show. I'll eventually upload that recording too. But the source 1 tape did not get that song or the ending of "Communication Breakdown" recorded.
Give this excellent show a listen and let me know what you think...
