We're Gonna Groove, Dazed and Confused, Heartbreaker, Bring it on Home, White Summer/Black Mountain Side, Since I've Been Loving You, Thank You, What is and What Should Never Be, Moby Dick
The tape begins during the first verse of We're Gonna Groove. Page gets the band into an excellent funky jam after the guitar solo. The bass intro to Dazed and Confused causes someone near the taper to respond "oh wow." Page seems to have some trouble with his equipment during the bow solo and he completely disappears during the final verse, but it doesn't detract from the epic nature of the song. The band is on fire.
Plant does a bit about American accents before Heartbreaker. Page shreds through the extended solo. Plant occasionally has a strange echo effect on his vocals. An extended Bring it on Home features some fine harmonica playing as well as an excellent duel between Page and Bonzo. Another excellent White Summer/Black Mountain Side is introduced as "the white summer of pale Jimmy Page" by Plant. One of the most interesting renditions thus far, Page experiments with many new licks and themes.
Page improvises a new opening to Since I've Been Loving You. Plant delivers a dynamic, emotionally charged performance. Jones's organ solo is based around a great driving groove. Thank You features backing vocals from Page, as well as some great bluesy licks. Bonzo is out of control. One of the best renditions thus far. The recording ends during another thunderous Moby Dick.
The tape is excellent, clear and well-balanced. It's a shame we don't have the rest of this great show.
There is about a minute and a half of silent 8mm color footage from the show in Charlotte, NC on 4/7/1970. The footage is quite dark and shaky, featuring only brief fragments of the performance. Since there is no audio from this show, I didn't think it necessary to make a separate post.
