I first got a silver CD copy of the soundboard for this show around 1999. I was blown away back then by the quality of the recording. But this matrix is even a step up from that recording and just that much better!

As I've mentioned in other Page & Plant shows I've shared, this was when the band started playing the songs more "Zeppelin like." In the earlier 1995 concerts they had way too much orchestra and Middle Eastern music renditions to the songs we grew up loving. Don't get me wrong. I like the 1995 Page & Plant shows too, but they were not as good as the ending of that first Page & Plant tour in Japan in 1996 and then the followup tour in 1998 in my opinion.
These songs on this 2 CD set are played much more like Led Zeppelin would have played them. And I always say it is just too bad they didn't have John Paul Jones playing bass and keyboard (amost a few instruments) and they all started a Led Zeppelin reunion tour then. But they didn't. Michael Le, the late drummer at the time, was really on fire and did great "John Bonham style" playing I think. He could have been used as well as Jason Bonham too I'm sure to have started the reunion tour that never happened. There was the 2007 reunion show, but a show is not a tour either.
I really wish they had played "No Quarter", one of my favorite Led Zeppelin songs, in this show. But they didn't. They did add some unique, never played live by Led Zeppelin songs into the mix like "Tea For One" however.
"Liriodendron" did a spectacular matrix job on this recording. The mix sounds superb as well as the recordings he used. All thanks goes to him for this CD set (complete with artwork too)!
I hope you enjoy the show...
