I just got this recording recently and it really sounds nice. It has more of the high frequencies present which also leads to more hiss in it. The sound is great-to-excellent, but there are some tape anomalies and an overabundance on what I think is tape noise. But the show is easy to listen to and enjoy and the noise doesn't necessarily ruin the show. But the noise does take it from a superb recording to a great-to-excellent one. Source 1 is the primary source used and of course it sounds better. But source 2 is used at the beginning of "Dazed and Confused" and for the final encores which are the final two tracks.

The previous night, in Osaka, Led Zeppelin played "The Crunge" without Robert Plant singing in the song about midstream during "Dazed and Confused". They do the same thing this night too in Nagoya. It has real high energy and rocking sound to it the way they did this. I can only imagine how it must have sounded live and up front in the venue. Also, there's kind of a funny moment as Plant is getting to the last ",,,and she's buying..." in "Stairway to Heaven" when someone screams real loud from the audience. It sort of stops Plant for a second, you think he's going to say something, but then he continues on ending the song. It's sort of a funny, different, and an unusual moment captured.
I'm in an uploading kind of mood today and I'm considering uploading the Source 1 master and unknown generation Source 2 mix by "weedwacker" today too. Let me see what I can do. I'm waiting for the cable and internet repairman to come out here and take a look at an e-mail and sporadic cable internet and TV issue I've been having. He may show up and cut service before knocking on the door. So I want to get the show I'm uploading now uploaded first before I do anything else. And if I have the time, I should be able to upload the other sources I mentioned.
I hope you enjoy the source 3 and 4 mix of this 42 year old gem today...
