The new song this night is "Custard Pie" and I like seeing that one in the setlist! And this is the very first night the band truly got "Tea For One" right. Even in the 1996-12-09 show they still didn't have it starting out just right. I guess they practiced it on their break and got it down finally. My favorite performance of it is this night and the next night's show which we have video of too. And I like the changed up a little "That's The Way" version they play too. It really is cool.

This show is an excellent recording but not as superb sounding as the last one they had played (sound wise) on 1996-02-09 before the band took a couple off days to have a break. And Jimmy Page sounds really good on the guitar, and Robert Plant sounds good too.
I don't know how long it has been since I have listened to this complete show? But it's been long enough that I can't really write up a good review of it. I'm listening as I make this post hurriedly. But I'll attempt to point out some things that may be of interest to others.
I am noticing some flaws from the taper at times like pointing the microphone down or having it blocked by someone possibly for short moments. The sounds is not as rich or full range sounding either and that is likely from the gear and the microphone the taper used as well as where they may have been seated. But one thing is for sure. The show does not sound bad at all. It sounds excellent and it is very easy to enjoy it too.
In addition, the Japanese crowds have always been the best and they make it easy to record a show because they don't chat during songs, they cheer between songs when the band finishes and before they start the next song, and they just seem to be more polite than most other regions of the world. It makes for such a perfect, almost studio/soundboard type of audience recording when crowds are like this. But the Japanese definitely show their love and appreciation for the music in the right moments too.
