There really is not too much information on this specific source other than it is a master source. And the audience recording sounds excellent-to-superb too so that is great since there are not many other options to choose from.
I imagine, but do not know for sure, that Winston Remasters will be doing a Live Omega Series remaster of this one sometime in the future if he already hasn't. If he has, I have not seen it and of course do not have it.

Thanks for the Mega incorrect upload info Igor...the correct show is there now.
I'm using a free Mega account as a mirror in this upload. Those of you downloading please leave me a message here or on the Facebook (Community Group or Secret Group) letting me know what works best as far as the links go. I eventually plan on adding a secondary mirror site to my posts as I've always had until the last year or so. Your opinion will help me help you.
The waveform looks fine and has no real audio clipping. I say "no real" because there looks like one tiny spike in the waveform and it really amounts to nothing problematic either.
The artwork shows three extra tracks from another show at the end of disc two. Those tracks are not in this download. And the extra tracks from that show, the 1980-06-27 Nuremberg, Germany show, have not been uploaded here yet but will be soon in the upload for that show.
I am listening to the sow right now as I prepare this post and I like the mix. I am hearing Robert Plants vocals, Jimmy Page's guitar, and John Bonham's drums cleanly. John Paul Jones' bass is there but it is not as prevalent or up front as the rest of the band. There is no problem with hearing JPJ however. And his keyboards music is as clean and loud as the rest of the band too. This is a very good job by the taper from what I have heard so far. And he seems to be close to the stage too.
This seems to be the full show based on the length of it. It is longer than the last two concerts from Led Zeppelin's 1980 tour I have uploaded also. The setlist doesn't change much other than in they dropped a song in the show. They do not play "Achilles Last Stand" in this show. The band seemed to have been playing the same setlist usually to this point in the 1980 tour I have noticed in my recent uploads. There was usually one change in each show and the final song was that change. In the previous Bremen, Germany from 1980-06-23 show they ended with "Communication Breakdown", and in the upload before that, the Rotterdam 1980-06-21 show, they ended with "Heartbreaker". In this show they end with "Whole Lotta Love".
I'm not giving a full review of this show because I really do not have the time this morning. I want to go ahead and get it uploaded so you can enjoy it.
I have to admit that the more I listen to this show the more I almost feel like rating it as a superb audience recording. There is some tape hiss but nothing distracting. It is a good sign too that not much if any of the audio's high frequencies were taken out. And there is not much crowd noise and definitely not the kind when there is any to interfere with the show. I'm up to "Kashmir" now and have heard nothing in the show to complain about! If anything; the sound has only improved.
I think somebody either makes Jimmy Page mad with a firecracker or his gear just went "pop" and the song just stops after that. There is a long silence and then an Austrian person gets on the microphone and starts talking. You hear the crowd saying "boo" after the Austrian mentions "Jimmy Page" and then the crowd gets happy again. I wish I knew what was being said! In the end the Austrian speaker on stage starts talking some English and says "the show must go on..." and he is talking about somebody in the audience and how they want to find them. He seems to be asking the crowd to tell who the "neighbor" is. The taper seems to take this time to stop the tape and do a tape flip and the rest of "White Summer" never gets played and needless to say "Black Mountain Side" never gets played either. The band, without mentioning the incident, comes back on stage and starts playing "Kashmir" then. A very interesting twist to the concert indeed.
This is NOT in the text file. I learned as this upload was almost complete that this is the source 1 out of two known sources recording. I am trying to obtain a first generation copy of this same source right now to compare the two. And I am looking for source 2 also but it does not seem to be in circulation at this time. The source 2 recording is reportedly similar quality as this recording but the first generation copy of this source 1 recording sounds even better according to "pernod" in a 2011 post. We'll see what happens!
I hope you enjoy the show...
