Immigrant Song, Heartbreaker, Black Dog, Since I've Been Loving You, Stairway to Heaven, That's the Way, Tangerine, Bron-Y-Aur Stomp, Dazed and Confused, Whole Lotta Love, Communication Breakdown
The tape begins at the end of Immigrant Song. Page's fingers get a bit sticky during the solos in Heartbreaker. Plant thanks the crowd for "makin' this the biggest thing that's ever happened in New Zealand" before Since I've Been Loving You. Page's fingers get stuck in the strings during the guitar solo in Stairway to Heaven. A goofy giggle coming from someone near the taper can be heard between and sometimes during songs. Plant announces "we'd now like to bring on our vocalist... John Henry Bonham" before Bron-Y-Aur Stomp. He's in a good mood, joking and laughing with the crowd between songs.
The initial verses of Dazed and Confused are very loose. Page improvises freely during the excellent lead-in to the bow solo, even including the first reference to The Song Remains the Same. Unfortunately, the tape is cut at the end of the bow solo. Page gets the band into a jam on a funky riff prior to the theramin freakout during Whole Lotta Love. The Everybody Needs Somebody to Love riff is extended into a heavy jam before the guitar solo. The medley includes an extended Boogie Chillen', an excellent Hello Mary Lou, and a riotous rendition of Elvis Presley's Let's Have a Party. The medley ends with an amazing Goin' Down Slow, the best yet. Someone near the taper howls with excitement at the beginning of a high-energy Communication Breakdown. The usual funky breakdown is dropped in favor of a lightning-fast extended guitar solo. A great performance.
The tape is excellent. Clear and well-balanced with a great sense of atmosphere.
