Originally sourced and torrented by "Bobby Plant", and then revised by "pernod" on 2012-03-23, this recording is a very clean sounding capture of an superbly played Led Zeppelin show. And I believe it is a recording that slips under the radar many times due to lesser sounding copies out there of other sources shared by labels that have done such things as EQ the show badly.
This clean source 3 recording is in 48 kHz/16 bit audio files. The CD standard is 44.1 kHz/16 bit (or 44/16), but most players and CD burning software knows to convert the 48/16 files over to 44/16 as they add them to discs. And if your software doesn't do this, leave me a comment and I'll point you towards a great Windows CD burning program that will do it automatically.

This is such a clean audience recording that I almost like it better than the audience/soundboard mix copies. The crowd is very quiet too. Jimmy Page's guitar and Robert Plant's vocals are so clean and sharp sounding and the rest of the band can be heard clean and fine as well. The clean and sharp sound is why I am rating this one so highly. You really have to check this show out.
Page plays some really "heart felt" guitar too in this show. I love the "Stairway To Heaven" solo in this show also.
I plan to upload the three sources audience/soundboard mix and matrix Winston Remasters copy Danke Vienna later today if I have time. Winston knocked his excellent work right out of the park on that remaster job.
I uploaded EVSD's Happiness Is A War Gun last year, but the upcoming copy of Winston Remasters three sources project is an improvement in the audience/soundboard copies I've got.
The artwork I am including in this "pernod Revised" copy being uploaded is from the Gusto "label" which is really seeming to not really be a label as much as it it seems to be a label added to artwork someone makes for some Led Zeppelin shows. It doesn't mention the 48/24 audio but mentions an "alternate source" on the back and I do think it is referring to the "Bobby Plant" source 3 audio. But it is not referring to the "pernod Revision" copy being shared. I cannot say this for sure, but I think it is the case. I mention this because I ask and hope you will also state this information too if you share this upload I am making with the artwork enclosed in it.
I highly recommend getting both of these 1973-03-16 shows I upload today (hopefully) because both are excellent-to-superb sounding to me and I base that solely on how much I personally enjoy the sound, performance, and mix. Each copy is the same show, but each copy has a completely different sound of its on and each uses different sources too. I do not see what I'm uploading now (source 3) being mentioned or used in the Winston Remasters audience/soundboard project either even though sometimes the "source" information does not always natch in each copy of a show and it can get confusing at times.
I hope you enjoy the show...
