Day 121: 11/30/1972 Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, England

11/30/1972 Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, England (unknown gen)
Rock and Roll, Over the Hills and Far Away, Black Dog, Misty Mountain Hop, Since I've Been Loving You, Dancing Days, Bron-Y-Aur Stomp, The Song Remains the Same, The Rain Song, Dazed and Confused, Stairway to Heaven, Whole Lotta Love, Immigrant Song, Heartbreaker, Thank You

The tape begins during Bonzo's intro to Rock And Roll. There is a slight cut during the first chorus of Over the Hills and Far Away. Page shreds through the guitar solo. Plant introduces Black Dog as "My Brain Hurts." The Song Remains the Same has finally been given a proper title. The tape is cut at the end of The Rain Song, leading directly to the intro of Dazed and Confused. The lead-in to the bow solo includes a brief instrumental version of what will become the San Francisco interlude.

Page's intro to Stairway to Heaven receives a big cheer from the crowd. Bonzo's snare is like a machine gun during the excellent guitar solo. Pant dedicates Whole Lotta Love to Roy Harper. The medley includes Boogie Chillen', Elvis Presley's Let's Have a Party, and Goin' Down Slow. After a cut in the tape, Immigrant Song begins with a strange, out of tune intro. Page blazes through the solos during Heartbreaker. The show ends with a lackluster Thank You.

The tape is quite muffled and hissy.
