This show sounds superb to me really but there is some slight tape hiss. It is not anything terrible and in fact I am glad it is there. Why you ask? Because it tells me EVSD didn't chop out the high frequencies like they do at times.

I really like this "No Quarter" version on the 4 CD set. It has some different John Paul Jones (nearer to the beginning) and Jimmy Page (nearer to the end) played music. It may not be that it was so "different" and may just be more that in this recording you can hear it better making it sound different. I'll leave it at that and let you be the judge and hear it yourself. And in this show, Led Zeppelin added "Dancing Days" to the setlist too. I imagine it was a bonus track since it was their last of six nights playing in Los Angeles.
I did not check like I meant to and see if this show actually fits onto 3 CD's. I seem to recall that it can, but since I have been so far behind in getting any uploads lately, I'm just uploading it this morning before the day gets going.
As I mentioned this recording has no audio clipping, sounds excellent/superb, and the high end as well as the low end frequencies have a nice mix too. The band plays a superb show on this last night in one of their favorite states and cities too.
It's rather ironic that they launched their American career in California and ended their last American shows within a month of this show in 1977 in the same state too. They would have been here again on their 1980 tour of course if it had not been cut short after the European leg when John Bonham sadly died.
One last thing worth mentioning is this is not from the faulty, first release of this box set. Originally, disc three had issues with gaps between the tracks. I guess EVSD didn't do any quality control before shipping them to buyers (who claim this was a very expensive set when released). I guess the complaints came in fast and from the way it sounds people were sent a correct disc 3 or some even received 5 CD sets containing both the bad and good CD 3 copies enclosed I have read. But this is not from the faulty releases and there are no errors in this copy.
Make that two last things. The source for this show is the Mike Millard recording but there are a few very short patches used from other sources (or at least one other source). But in general, this is a very nice Mike Millard recording and the job EVSD did putting it together with and without the other source(s) was a job well done!
I hope you enjoy the show...
