Day 60: 8/31/1970 Milwaukee, WI

8/31/1970 Milwaukee, WI  (master>dat)
Immigrant Song, Heartbreaker, Dazed and Confused, Bring it on Home, That's the Way, Bron-Yr-Aur, Since I've Been Loving You

The band is on fire. Page absolutely shreds through the solos in Heartbreaker. Plant hits an impossibly high note during the final verse at the end of the line "go away heartbreaker!" Page plays a funky stop-start riff during the guitar solo section in Dazed and Confused. Plant improvises new lyrics during the final verse. After Bring it on Home, Plant jokes that the way things are going, the new album could be out within anywhere between three weeks and ten years. The recording ends with another dramatic Since I've Been Loving You in which Page delivers a particularly inspired performance.

The tape is clear and well-balanced, quite enjoyable. If only we had the rest of this energetic, playful performance.

Plant is in fantastic voice on SIBLY-- perhaps the best that I've ever heard him on that song.
