Press Report: The Led Zeppelin concert at the showgrounds last Sunday must rate as one of the best ever held in Sydney - but, if the crowd had not stormed the fences, it could have been the worst.

The official attendence figure was 27,000 but senior police officers at the concert estimated the crowd at "at least 30,000". According to showground officials the three stands used last Sunday have a maximum capacity of 25,000 - so whatever way you look at it the ground was dangerously overcrowded.

Despite the fact that there were no seats left at mid-day and no standing room by 1.30pm., people were still coming through the gates at 2.30pm. The overcrowding that existed before the fences were stormed must never be allowed to occur again because next time someone could be killed in the crush. Once capacity is reached the gates should be closed. David D. Bryant The Sun-Herald, 5 March 1972, p. 109.

Plant laid down some ground rules: "Now listen! We've already come across the one problem we were told about. Now, there's been a lot of mistakes about this thing, but we don';t want to make any mistakes and neither do you, alright? So don't come past this barrier, otherwise ythere's gonna be some shit. And why don't you sit down ... and if it rains, we're gonna have to stop. That's a fact, it'll blow up! Take a seat!" Black Dog is played with fury and impact and is one of the greatest versions I've ever heard. The bowing solo in Dazed And Confused, warmly received, is a delightful novelty to the provincial punters and this is another great version of this song. Rock And Roll is delivered with swaggering fury. Plant reaches the notes the ear expects. Whole Lotta Love and its rock medley, including a fully-realized, instrumental version of The Rover, heard years before its official release, is a truly awesome!

The tape begins with an announcement from Plant asking the crowd to stay behind the barrier and warning that if the rain persists, they'll have to stop the show. Black Dog is introduced as "one about a nineteen year old black labrador." Page shreds through the guitar solo, repeating licks to mesmerizing effect. The taper can be heard timing his tape flips as the song ends. The tape is cut between songs. The taper's friend can be heard shouting "switch it off, you're wasting it!" after Stairway to Heaven. Plant forgets the lyrics a few times during Going to California. He asks "all the policemen on the roof to join in" before Bron-Y-Aur Stomp, which is cut during the instrumental section.

Bonzo wails on his gong at the beginning of Dazed and Confused. Page's fingers fly across the fretboard during the frenzied lead-in to the bow solo. The taper comments "look at this... a violin bow on the guitar." Page solos frantically throughout the guitar solo/workout section as well as the outro. Moby Dick is dynamic and incredibly powerful. The medley during Whole Lotta Love includes Hello Mary Lou, the first appearance of The Rover in an excellent instrumental arrangement, Elvis Presley's Let's Have a Party, Lawdy Miss Clawdy, and Goin' Down Slow. After Thank You, Plant announces "goodbye... time for dinner" as the band leaves the stage.
