Robert Plant has a problem with the beginning lyrics of "Going To California" in this show and it takes him a second to get on track. I think it was either "Going To California" or "That's The Way" he messed up on in a previous show before they went over to New Zealand for a few days. I mentioned it in that show's post a day or three ago.
I love the additional guitar licks Page puts into the song "That's The Way" in these Australian concerts. Pay attention to the very beginning of the acoustic music he's playing at the start of the song, before Robert Plant starts singing, and you'll hear what I am talking about. That would have sounded cool on the official studio release had they added it to it.
Thanks goes to "zepster1979" for supplying the files "pernod" cleaned up and fixed (without any EQ work)!

The show is not complete, and this seems to be a big issue wioth most of these Australia recordings. As I mentioned in another Australian show a few days ago, the tapers seem to cut their recorders off or put them in pause mode in between songs many times. However, this show is close to being complete. And the ending of the show seems to be recorded too where a lot of the earlier Australian shows cut off after "Whole Lotta Love" and the encores were not taped or shared.
The show had already started when this recording starts. But we still get the most of the concert and the songs, other than a few seconds cut at the beginning of some due to the taper starting their recorder again missing the very first notes. The first two tracks I'm are not recorded and ""That's The Way" is also cut short. I'm listening to the show now and am up to "Whole Lotta Love" right now. So whatever happens from the time I upload this show and the very end is not something I can type about now :-)
I uploaded the Genuine Masters DVD-A (I'll have to double check and see what source or source mix it is) of this show on its 42nd anniversary (or a year ago today). So if you're interested in that one, it can be found here too.
Even though I've been told it is not necessary to fix a sector boundary error (or SBE) and align it if it is the last track on a CD, I still like to fix it anyhow. So I did that on "Thank You" wheter it was needed or not. I did it if for no other reason than to avoid confusion for someone else like it has caused me in recent years.
I also had a feeling the lossiness test, the file titled "TLH CDDA Test", would likely show some previous processing of this recording (prior to "prenod's" revision) before I ever started putting this upload together. It sounded as if it had been processed at some point to me (and I think it has). And after seeing the test results, I definitely believe this is the case now. This will not be a lossy recording. There is no worry about that even if the TLH testing, which is not reliable for lossiness testing anyhow, shows a mixed report.
I added some artwork from the source 2 recording, however, it was not created for this specific lineage (Master Source 2) upload. It just fits and is from a non label, non descriptive source (and that's why I used it). Please remember, if you share this show and include the artwork be sure to make note that the artwork is NOT for this specific recording so others will not be confused.
I hope you enjoy this show..
