Led Zeppelin: 1970-09-04 Inglewood, CA (FLAC_AUD Master Multi Sources Mix_2 CD)

This is one of my all time favorite Led Zeppelin shows.  Not just because it sounds so excellent but because the band's performance is so incredible as well.  This copy had been requested back about six months ago and I had accidentally moved it over into the "Need To Burn" folder instead of the "Requests" folder I noticed the other day.  So today I am listening to and uploading it all at the same time.

There are I believe seven audience sources for this show in circulation now.  Every label in the world has at some point put out a copy of Live On Blueberry Hill it feels like.  Some are just one of the source recordings, some are mixed sources, and some I really don't know the details on.  But needless to say there are a lot of copies and versions of this concert out there.  I've already uploaded at least three or four with one being the Genuine Masters DVD-A copy here in past years.  This is an excellent-to-superb (superb to me) sounding show!

There really is not a lot more I can say about the show itself other than what I have said in the past.  In this specific Sanctuary 2 CD set, the mix sounds excellent and there is no audio clipping to worry about.  There are a very few tiny spikes on a few tracks but nothing that will cause any problems or anything anyone would even notice without looking at the waveform.  There is no brickwalling done in the recording either.

I lost track of how many sources I heard used before making it to "Whole Lotta Love" which is where I am now.  The source transitions are smooth and the patches are used to fill in gaps other sources didn't get recorded in order to form a more complete show.  For all practical purposes, the whole show is here.  You don't miss any songs and there is even the introduction of the band as the first track which some copies do not have.

I still think my favorite copy is the Winston Remasters A Sweeter Blueberry copy because he did such a wonderful job on the sources he worked on.  I do not know if his copy is any less complete or more complete than this one right at the time.  And as you've already read, this Sanctuary copy is reportedly sourced from masters of the various sources used.

Here are some copy & pasted reviews from Underground Uprising:

(1) "
Live On Blueberry Hill (Sanctuary) Per **** SQ ****1/2 Appeal G
Another re-issue of the famous show from The Forum, Inglewood, California on September 4, 1970? But possibly the best version yet! A competent assembly of the best of the various audience sources results in a bright, very clean 2 disc set - lacking in bottom end on occasions and with a slight drop out in the right channel during Dazed. Page's guitar is always prominent in the mix. The playing is of a high standard throughout, check out the guitar/harmonica duet in Bring It On Home. The surprises come at the end of the show, the extended Communication Breakdown medley containing Good Times, Bad Times and a rare version of Out On The Tiles, followed by Blueberry Hill itself. The Japanese label is another of the expensive post-Tarantura efforts which means excellent packaging and more quotes from Luis Rey and Dave Lewis/Simon Pallett's Zeppelin reference books. (Tony Gassett Aug 99)"

(2) "Live On Blueberry Hill (Sanctuary) 2CD 9/4/70 Limited edition and numbered
Sound Quality 7-9/10; Appeal 4.5/5
Well, what can you say? This label appears to have set itself a goal to make their releases as complete as possible irrespective on the number of source tapes required to achieve this. This is all great news for the collector! Again, this release utilizes the original mono TMQ tape (or Blimp if you prefer) as much as possible with help from the alternate mono source used recently by Tarantura and what sounds like at least two stereo sources. This means that we get the complete band intro courtesy of the alt. mono tape and where possible in between song patter filled out with one of the two stereo tapes or the alt. mono tape. Pure trainspotting stuff! As with Bonzos-73, the splicing is quite good without a compromise in sound quality. Packaging is in the same format as for Bonzos, again using appropriate pics from the era and commentary from Rey and Lewis/Pallet. Ditto the concluding comments for Bonzo's above. This as complete as you are ever likely to hear this show and this release probably deserves definitive status. (Lord Byron Apr 99"

(3) "Live On Blueberry Hill (Sanctuary)
2 CDs, The Forum, Inglewood, 4 September 1970. Total time 133 mins. Collectors may be forgiven for thinking that there is no need for yet another release of this classic title, however they are wrong. Whoever compiled the master for this release went to a great deal of care, trouble and hard work. Using both the mono sources, and the stereo source, a definitive version of the concert has been put together, ensuring that every available minute of the concert is present. Full marks to Sanctuary for this valiant effort. It is however most unfortunate that on the covers they have again ripped off the entry in Lewis & Pallett's CONCERT FILE, and also Luis Rey's CONCERT TAPES, word for uncredited word. This has been released as an expensive limited and individually numbered edition, with the classic TMOQ cover (in full colour)on the card slipcase (Jules McTrainspotter Mar 99)"

I did want to thank "pernod" for sharing this over on R-O and I did take the high quality scans that were in the original 2005 download and crop them to get rid of non artwork borders that were around the edges and then I resized the artwork correctly.

I hope you enjoy the show...
