This is a good sounding audience recording and it becomes better sounding the more you listen to it. I was going to upload a 1st generation copy of it, but it just sounded like the sound on that recording was missing the high end frequencies and this TDOLZ copy has great high end sound present. The show is not going to win any awards for sound of course. But it really isn't bad sounding even though it isn't excellent sounding either.

The taper sounds like he was a distance back from the stage. But the band can be evenly heard and it is very easy to discern the different instruments. And Robert Plant's vocals are really loud and up front too. Parts of this show even sound great. The band is really sounding in top form on this night and you can hear Plant, Page, Bonham, and Jones all equally. And Page is playing especially well too. There is not really any distortion (maybe a tiny bit in some spots) and that is what makes it an enjoyable listen. While the sound isn't the greatest, what we do have is easy to hear and very easy on the ears too. And again, it is a great performance. And the crowd noise is not bad at all and in fact very good (not very much crowd noise).
Sometimes we get audience recordings that fall into the "good" category due to bad mixes, distortion, and really just an overall "not easy on the ears" recording. But this one is better than those and the real problem with it is probably the age of the recording, maybe the gear used to record it, and just the fact it isn't an excellent or superb sounding recording. But I can't stress enough, this recording is not bad and is really enjoyable because it is better sounding that most recordings I'd rate as "good" (maybe a 6+ out of 10). If you're a Zeppelin collector and have heard a lot of shows, you'll know what I mean and I think you will enjoy this one like I have been enjoying it tonight. I'm tempted to rate this one as a great but it falls just a little short of that I believe.
And there is one more plus going for this recording too. It is the complete show with a few small cuts. They are the very short, during a tape flip or something like that kind. In fact, in "The Song Remains The Same" I think a tape flip occurs from what I just heard. I think there is another tape flip at the beginning of "Stairway to Heaven" too. But it picks right back up almost immediately.
I probably haven't listened to this show in a decade or so? But the complete setlist is here and now that I've finished listening to the show it is almost complete except for three short cuts (tape flips?).. The taper doesn't pull any of the saving tape methods and pause the recorder in between songs or any of that junk either. A very enjoyable performance indeed!
I hope you enjoy the show...
