As far as sound quality goes, this one is very listenable, but definitely nowhere near commercial release quality. As of the date at the end of this file, this is the only source/generation of this show I have heard, so I can’t say as to whether this is the best or worse sounding release of this show. It is a great performance from the guys, nonetheless. If you like the Zep Japan shows, this one is definitely worth a listen.

The show came package in non-standard CD package that is much like a book (very professional job). I have provided scans of the main cover, the disc labels, and one of the inserts. The package also came with a little booklet with pictures and text (all in Japanese). I have not included scans of the booklet, as it was more trouble than it is worth. Don’t get me wrong, the booklet is alright, but nothing special (but I didn’t buy it for the packaging alone). Enjoy.

This site is a collection of Led Zeppelin bootlegs and collectors discs. It is an outgrowth of my recent efforts to organize and catalog my person collection. This is not intended as a “complete” list of Led Zeppelin bootlegs; it is only the recordings which I possess.

This site is very much a work in progress. Currently, only 1971, 1977, 1979 and 1980 are complete. However, there are now over 1165 sources available for download from this site. And I am adding new content regularly.

All sources listed here are available in a lossless format (FLAC or SHN) and may be downloaded via FileFactory.

No material here has been officially released. Nothing here is for sale.


List of The Firm sources

I’ve had a couple of requests for shows of The Firm. Below are sources that I have in my collection–as of today. (I am still trying to obtain a few more.)

It will take me a while to get these uploaded (this is a busy week with work, so I am not able to spend as much time working on the web site). But let me know if there are specific sources in this list you would like, and I can upload those first.
