I'm not sure if what I am uploading is truly the Celebration label's copy or if someone just threw the artwork from that copy in. There is very little information in the text file, but the lineage as well as the source it came from (R-O), does show this is the 1st generation copy.

This recording is just over an hour long. And the sound is superb too. The 1973 tour, the same tour as the officially released DVD "The Song Remains The Same came from, is one of Led Zeppelin's best. There are a number of soundboard recording from the tour too that are also superb sounding recordings.
This Detroit show was performed just two weeks prior to the filming dates at New York's Madison Square Garden for The Song Remains The Same video too. It always makes me wonder if any of these soundboards from 1973 have videos that were professionally shot too. I'm pretty sure no band goes around paying filming companies to just film shows in case they decide to use a different date. But I do wonder if alternate dates get filmed as a backup when a release is being planned.
By the way, the artwork shows 2 CD's but there is not any two disc (or three disc either) version known to exist yet for this Detroit show. There is no copy of "Dazed and Confused" or "Stairway to Heaven" from the soundboard circulating (yet at least) as the artwork shows.
I hope you enjoy the current available soundboard recording from this show...
