Previously released several years ago by Electric Magic as "Mystical Majesties Request" (with excellent packaging taking off the Rolling Stones album), this latest release from Empress Valley is a considerable improvement in sound quality. The Electric Magic release, very good sounding as it is, sounds tinny in comparison to this new release. Empress Valley have given this version a much fuller and richer sound, with a marked improvement in the bottom end. Sadly because of the limited issue and high price it will be beyond the reach of many, but no doubt will soon be traded amongst fans. The packaging is excellent too. Each CD has a reproduction of a reel to reel tape on it, and is housed in a glossy card slipcover. The colour of this and the outer box is midnight blue, lined in gold. The three CDs are housed in a thick card glossy box, at the bottom of which is a lapel badge, a picture of Robert Plant in bell bottoms and the words: Leicester 1971. The photos used are all from this concert, which is a very nice detail, and on the back of the outer box is a reproduction of the concert revue from the local paper with the headline: LED ZEPPELIN - BEST FOR HARD 'N' HEAVY. -Original
