An extremely rare show, this was a warm-up for the US Tour, and a great show it is. Robert's voice is just amazing, and the playing and spontaneity of the improvisations are phenomenal. Celebration Day is wonderful and a really great, fast and furious Dazed And Confused is given to the restrained crowd. Even Moby Dick is short, tight and enjoyable. The blistering encores and the Whole Lotta Love (with some very unique and odd references) finally make the crowd hysterical.

Plant tells the crowd "it's very nice to be back" before Immigrant Song. Page drops out briefly during the initial verses. Plant pushes his voice to its breaking point during Heartbreaker. Page's solos are particularly inspired. Plant's introduction of Black Dog is met with a loud cheer from the crowd. An excellent dynamic Since I've Been Loving You is introduced as "a song of love." The band gets a bit confused trying to enter the first chorus of a frantic Celebration Day. Plant mistakenly begins the third verse as Page jumps into the first guitar solo.

The guitar solo during Stairway to Heaven is a dramatic interplay between Page's guitar and Jones's piano. Unfortunately, a cut in the tape brings the moment to a premature end. The very beginning of a raucous Bron-Y-Aur Stomp is missing from the tape. Plant improvises new lyrics during the initial verses of Dazed and Confused. Page solos wildly during an excellent, high-energy jam prior to the bow solo. He's on fire during a dynamic guitar solo/workout section, even including a bit of I Wish You Would. Plant exclaims "hallelujah, glory hallelujah!" just before the guitar solo during What is and What Should Never Be. There are a few brief tape disturbances near the end of the song. There is a cut in the middle of Moby Dick.

The medley during Whole Lotta Love includes Boogie Chillen', Hello Mary Lou, an excellent rendition of Running Bear, That's All Right, Hoochie Coochie Man, and Goin' Down Slow, which takes a minute to get underway due to the enthusiastic crowd's incessant rhythmic clapping. The end of a riotous Rock and Roll is met with loud chants of "we want more!" from the crowd. Their wishes are granted as the band returns to the stage to close the show with a high-energy Communication Breakdown. An excellent performance, must hear.

The tape is fairly clear, if a bit overloaded, with Page and Plant overshadowing Bonzo and Jones.

Black and white film featuring a short fragment of Immigrant Song is available on Hercules's Film Noir Vol. 1 as well as Celebration's Early Visions. The footage is bright and clear, shot from directly in front of the stage. It's unfortunate there isn't more.
