Fair Distant Audience Recording
A bit distorted at times
This is one for the Ledhead/completist

Luis Rey:

Well, it sounds like the group is vindicating themselves after the disatrous third night at Chicago (theres even a brief reference to it). This is the last night, and there’s no more “food poisoning” for Jimmy….indeed he delivers the fastest, most powerful solo in NBFM ever recorded. Plant avoids the usual “Oh Jimmy” intro and simply commands Page to ” Shake It”!

Plant is becoming an expert at prolonging and sustaining his powerful howls that constantly shake the audience. The reference to “You Shook Me” during “In My Time of Dying” is slightly cut in this recording. “Since I’ve been Loving You” is dedicated to Willie Dixon and his freinds on the South side, with Page transforming it into a frenzied version of “Tea For One”.

Plant is in a good mood, sarcastically demanding an apology from a local radio station who accused Jimmy of drinking the whole day of the cancelled concert (“Jimmy doesn’t drink on tour”)….John Paul Jones plays stand up bass during the Stomp. Page does some strange, different arrangements of the solos during Trampled and Whits Summer (with long tense pauses), until Black Mountain Side is hurried by the audience with “C’mon”! and impatient clapping.
