I'd planned on uploading this one last year and I believe I even had at least two requests for it since late last year. But one thing led to another and now I am finally uploading it this morning.
This show is commonly referred to as having been in Cleveland, Ohio but in reality it was in a city south of Cleveland named Richfield. But a lot of people still share it and the artwork still shows it as Cleveland in most cases.

This is definitely a very different sounding copy of the show. I'm not really sure what the story is on it either and why Tarantura re-released it again as The Destroyer in 2014. From looking at the waveform, it really looks like they amplified it a lot and then compressed the audio so it wasn't showing clipping. That's my guess anyhow. It also seems to be a little heavier in the right channel than the left. However, the show sounds excellent and most people I'm sure will love it and those issues do not ruin it at all.
There is a bit of hiss in the audio from the tape transfers I am sure. But the sound is very clean and the show is one of my favorite 1977 Led Zeppelin shows too. I really like "No Quarter" (still incomplete) and "Ten Years Gone".
There are tons of copies of this show out there from years of boot labels releasing them. This copy from Tarantura may be the best in the boot label category (not including other non boot, low generation copies).
Even though I am sure a lot of audiophiles will disagree over some technical reasons, I think this show is a very nice sounding one. It's really excellent-to-superb and even with the flaws mentioned it still sounds very enjoyable. There is a second or two more of audio in "No Quarter" before part of John Paul Jones' solo is cut short and Jimmy Page's guitar solo begins. I'm sure there are other differences in the show too that I cannot talk about now without researching sites or listening to the whole show again.
Is this the very best copy of the show? No. But it definitely is one that is excellent and sounds very good (and different) and you'd have to listen to it to fully see what I am talking about. The mix is good between the instruments and vocals also. The high frequencies are very strong and clean sounding and the bass is a solid, good sounding bass without any discernible distortion to my ears.
I hope you enjoy the show...
