This DVD-A has a great psychedelic artwork mixed with shots of the band as they performed in Australia slideshow as the music plays.
I've not listened to this show in a year or so, but I know the taper stopped the recorder between songs sometimes and even chopped at least two songs short. Unfortunately, "Tangerine" was on the chopping block and we only have a small part of it. I went ahead and checked the disc and "Mony Dick" is fairly long but also cut short too. And last, but not least, sadly enough "Whole Lotta Love" seems to run out of tape nearing the end of the song but before it finishes. And with that song, they may have gone on for another hour too :-)
Also, while I'm not sure if Led Zeppelin did this or not in this show, they probably played "Communication Breakdown" and maybe even had the John Paul Jones organ solo leading into "Thank You" too. I'm guessing the taper just didn't bring enough tape with him, but again, I don't know for sure.
This is really an excellent recording and all the instruments ans well as Robert Plant can be heard easily and cleanly. It's too bad the taper had a little problem with the bass end on his equipment, but it is not horrible or show ruining at all. And not all bass is distorted either. I don't want to give that impression at all. It's just at some points in the show it is distorted a little in the real heavy (musically) parts of some songs. Page's guitar sounds so good too in this recording and he is on fire in this show.

YouTube Sample ("Going to California" and "That's The Way")
I was going to upload a FLAC copy of this show since so many people ask for those when DVD-A uploads happen, but this is the better sounding version. And with all the free and easy to use DVD burning programs available, it is not hard to learn to burn a disc like this at all. In most programs you just pick the "VIDEO_TS folder as the source and the program does the rest.
Also, for some reason I have not determined yet, the DVD-A discs zip up much smaller than their full size. These two zipped files are a 900 MB part 1 and 271 MB part 2 zipped file set uploaded. That's not really much larger that a 3 CD shows and smaller than some. I think what WinRAR does on non moving video (or slideshows) is compress the video part or the images. The audio doesn't change and is the same.
I've tried zipping the DVD-A's up like we do FLAC files or actual DVD video files where they come out the same size zipped up as they do unzipped. But it just can't be done. But my point is this. It really isn't much larger of a file than you'd get downloading a 2 CD copy of the show.
The previous information only seems to apply to what is more correctly termed Audio DVD's and not the real DVD-A discs that have audio files in the AUDIO_TS folder too. There is a way to build a better DVD-A but few people or labels do that. They just build these Audio DVD's with the audio inside of the video files (or VOB files). Don't worry if this makes no sense to you because it's just information and not necessarily anything you need to know in order to burn or use the DVD.
The FLAC copies I have for this show, one being a master source copy, all had to much bass distortion when compared to this Genuine Masters copy. They sounded good, and one day I'll upload some of them too. But the recordings were heavier on the bass and I wanted to upload a cleaner sounding copy and one that can be burned to one disc and watched too. Ripping a DVD's audio is also easy if you want to do that and make a FLAC version. I might even do that some day myself.
Since I've been having problems uploading the link via Blogspot where it shows here in my post, I just added the sample link above and you can look over on the lossy YouTube site and see the sample if you want to.
I hope you enjoy this 43 year old show...
