review from Underground Uprising:

Oxford 73 (Diagrams Of Led Zeppelin) Per **** SQ **** Appeal G

This is the longer soundboard recording on two disks for the show at the New Theatre, Oxford on January 7, 1973.
As with a lot of recordings of this type, the guitar tends to be buried in the mix and the drums are up front.
The sound is clear but a bit bass heavy. There is a cut in the Rain Song and Whole Lotta Love is terminated as it
starts. Overall a good show, with only Plant’s weak vocals letting the side down on occasions. Excellent versions
of Misty Mountain Hop, Since I’ve been Loving You, Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp and Dazed. The drum work in Song Remains The
Same is amazing. (Tony Gassett Feb 99)

Oxford 1973 (TDOLZ 759801, 759802 The Diagrams of Led Zeppelin)

New Theatre, Oxford, U.K., January 7, 1973

CD 1: (50:16) Rock & Roll (first drum beat cut and the beginning slightly garbled as the tape starts), Over the
Hills and Far Away, Black Dog, Misty Mountain Hop, Since I’ve Been Loving You, Dancing Days, Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp,
The Song Remains the Same (the mix shifts to one channel for one second near the beginning), The Rain Song (middle
2 minutes cut including vocal/tympani section)

CD 2: (43:45) Dazed & Confused (includes San Francisco), Stairway to Heaven (very minor scratch sound in beginning),
Whole Lotta Love (ending cut just as the medleys start with Everybody Needs Somebody To Love)

The soundboard tape used for this release is excellent and contains very little noticeable tape hiss. The balance
of the instruments does favor the vocals and percussion. But the guitars are not completely lost in the mix. There
are 2 cue stops for Rock & Roll. Plant’s vocals are in the process of healing. This prevents him from hitting those
high notes at every attempt. He skips a few lines at the beginning of Whole Lotta Love (possible PA problems) and
barely makes through the ending of Stairway to Heaven. (Brian Ingham)

Oxford 1973 (TDOLZ)

Diagrams have released the definitive version of this soundboard tape, it sounds much clearer and sharper than
Tarantura’s MADE IN ENGLAND and so is a very valuable addition to any collection. (Jules McTrainspotter Jan 99)

I would say this is a very good recording with a great sense of space and atmosphere despite the slight bass distortion and distance. It comes from a single source and is different than Tarantura’s or Flagge’s. The performance is very lean and tight, better musically IMO than the previous night’s show.
from bootledz:
10-3-72, sources 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, & 6
The Campaign (Tarantura), Explosion (Flagge), Great Dictator (Wendy), Live At the Big Hall Budokan Oct 3 1972 (TDOLZ), Live In Japan 1972 (LSD), Live In Tokyo (Amsterdam, 3cd), Majestic Rock (Reel Masters), No Use Greco (Tarantura2000, 3cd), & 2nd Night In a Judo Arena (Tarantura)
Sources, numbered relative to chronological release date: Tarantura = source 1, Amsterdam = source 2, TDOLZ = source 3, Flagge = source 4, Reel Masters = source 5, & Tarantura2000 = 6.
The two Tarantura titles are mostly from the first source. The introduction and Dazed come from source two. The Campaign re-issued source one used in it’s earlier title. This time, they made a few edits at cuts. One of the edits is after Stairway To Heaven. It replaces 20 seconds of the original tape with 10 seconds of tape from elsewhere.
Amsterdam and TDOLZ titles are exclusively from single, separate sources, numbers two and three. Amsterdam runs a bit fast and could have been easily placed on two cds instead of three.
Flagge’s title is from the fourth source, but not entirely. It uses some of the TDOLZ source to complete Dazed and talk between some songs. Some of the tape after the show is borrowed from the Amsterdam source.
Reel Masters is from the fifth source, but not entirely. It uses some of the TDOLZ source to complete Rain Song and Stairway To Heaven.
Tarantura2000 is from the fifth source, but not entirely. It uses some of the TDOLZ source after Rain Song. Brief splicing occurs during Whole Lotta Love too. The title could have been placed on two cds.
LSD is a 2 source mix. It uses the Amsterdam source up to the beginning of Stairway and then uses the Tarantura source for the remainder. The source shared with Amsterdam is much better sounding and runs at the proper speed.
Wendy is a similar mixture as LSD, but they throw in the TDOLZ source briefly after Stairway. The two splices during Dazed are hopefully not mixing in the remaining two tapes.

Notes from the original info file:
This release uses a near excellent audience tape source with very little noticeable tape hiss. The recorder is very close to the stage and all the instruments are well balanced. There is a fair amount of bass in the mix that produces a low rumbling sound at certain points. But it does not distort the tape and can be easily reduced. Someone nearby blows a whistle at the beginning and end of the show. Its only interference during the show occurs once at the beginning of Stairway to Heaven. For the most part, the audience is quiet around the recorder. Some muffled conversations can be heard during Moby Dick. Plant’s vocals are at their worst for the first two tracks. He does improve during the show, but does not push himself. There have been four previous releases of this show. The first was Freeze (Tarantura). It was cloned on the release Led Astray (Silver Rarities). The others were Bon Soir, Baton Rouge! (Capricorn Records) and Blaze (Immigrant). All of the Blaze releases I heard had a defect in them that resulted in skips during Dazed & Confused. So I avoided that release and cannot comment on its sound quality or completeness. Freeze, Led Astray and Hang on to Your Heads are complete. Bon Soir, Baton Rouge! omitted Dazed & Confused to fit the show on 2 CD’s. It has the same tape problems as Hang on to Your Heads. But it also has a minute cut from the introduction, shifts to one channel for 4 seconds at the end of No Quarter’s piano solo and runs 3% too slow. Freeze runs at the same speed as Hang on to Your Heads and has the same tape problems. But the channel shift in the introduction on Freeze is very noticeable. Tarantura also “enhanced” its tape by reducing the bass slightly (good) and raising the upper frequencies (bad). Their latter effort resulted in an increase in tape hiss. Both Freeze and Hang on to Your Heads use very low generation tapes. Temper the tape hiss on Freeze, and it compares well with Hang on to Your Heads.
