The Song Remains the Same, Sick Again, Nobody's Fault But Mine
The ill-fated return to Tampa Stadium begins with someone near the taper shouting "bring on the blimp!" into a megaphone before the band takes the stage. The show gets off to a strong start with a frantic The Song Remains the Same. Page's fingers fly across the fretboard as Bonzo thrashes wildly at anything within reach. Plant barks aggressively as the band hammers through Sick Again. Page blazes through the guitar solos. As the song ends, Plant tells the crowd "it's more than a pleasure to be back in the Tampa region again."
Bonzo misses a cue as Plant begins the harmonica solo during Nobody's Fault But Mine, but quickly gets back on track. The recording becomes quite muffled soon after as the taper attempts to protect his equipment from the inclement weather. Someone can be heard saying "this is the worst" as the crowd scrambles for cover from the rain while Page shreds through the guitar solo onstage. As the song ends, Plant announces "we want you to bear with us because there seems to be some water falling on the electrical equipment... so we're gonna give it a fifteen minute break, are you cool?" Following a cut in the tape, someone onstage gives the crowd instructions on how to obtain an IOU for admittance to a makeup show the following night. Unfortunately, the subsequent riot would cause the local police to prevent the show from being rescheduled.
The tape is very clear and well-balanced and includes three brief news clips reporting on the incident.
