This was Led Zeppelin's first night out of two in Dallas after they played Fort Worth on 1975-03-03 (where no recordings that have surfaced yet). This is one of the better, more superbly mixed soundboards and a spectacular show too.
This show has a rare excerpt, and a fairly long one if I'm recalling correctly, of the song "The Crunge" which Led Zeppelin did not play a lot live. And Robert Plant, as he often does, tells the crowd to shut up a few times as he's talking. This show has a lot of really nice perks to it with the sound being one of them. And I know you should enjoy it a lot.

The waveform looks great for this show and there is no audio clipping either. I really like the even mix of instruments too. I'm actually jamming out on this show right now as I prepare it and I love it!
It has a tad bit more hiss in the audio than some other labels left, which is allowing the higher frequencies to be heard better, but it is not anywhere close to be an issue or bad. And you really only hear it when there is no music playing anyhow. It's something you soon don't even notice. But I'm mentioning it because some of the other labels have cut some of the higher frequencies in an effort to remove the hiss (again, that is not even an issue to begin with).
The artwork for this show is very hard to find. And I found it in a download on the Viva Les Bootlegs site with the download on that site a few years ago. But unfortunately, the administrator for that site takes the artwork and adds his own label/stamp to the artwork he posts. He didn't create it, but he sticks a label on it. I don't like it, but it doesn't really bother me and it is a small price to pay for having artwork to add to the upload. He runs a great site too and shares a lot of great recordings by the way. I'm not badmouthing the site at all, so please don't think I am,
If anyone ever scans or finds a high resolution artwork set for this Wendy copy, please feel free to share it and let me know where to get it too.
I'm going to get this show uploading now because I want to kick back on the couch and jam out in the living room to the music rather than be listening from another room as I prepare this upload :-)
This is another one of the "must have" shows for any Zeppelin collector. So get it if you don't got it!
I hope you enjoy this recording on its 40th anniversary...
