Day 156: 5/25/1973 Denver, CO

5/25/1973 Denver, CO  Going Down
Heartbreaker, Whole Lotta Love, Communication Breakdown

The tape begins with Plant announcing "John Bonham, Moby Dick!" before Bonzo's intro march to Heartbreaker. Page shreds through the a cappella solo. Bonzo lays down a funky rhythm during the theramin freakout in Whole Lotta Love. The Boogie Chillen' section features an excellent guitar solo from Page. The band returns to the stage to close the show with a quick and dirty Communication Breakdown. As the band exits, Plant tells the crowd "thank you very much, and without oxygen, we gotta go to bed, goodnight!"

The tape is another great soundboard recording. An excellent companion piece to the tape from Fort Worth six nights earlier.
