This is a very good audience recording, meaning one below excellent. A girl does shout “PAGE” at quite a few moments between songs right into the mic, but that just adds to the atmosphere. Over all, the band is really on this day. There are some mic movements at various parts on CD 2, but nothing that interferes with the music. It is balanced over all and very listenable, given that its at a stadium with over 67,000 people on who knows what inside. Again, the first few notes of each song are not cut off, but the show is not complete, with missing Whole Lotta Love.

Tarantura has done an excellent job with editing that did have to be done, and with EQ’ing. This is now the definitive release for Led Zepp’s last concert. Highly recommended. (Info taken from collectorsmusicreviews).
