White Summer/ Black Mountain Side, For What It’s Worth intro./ How Many More Times (includes Down by the River, Ravel’s Bolero, The Hunter (small cut prior to), Needle Blues (contains a cut, then garbled, then another cut after), For What It’s Worth, Tobacco Road (beginning only) (tape garbled in beginning)
The recording from the 28th is from a good to very good, clear, slightly distant audience tape. The sound is slightly flat and tape hiss is very noticeable. Equalizing the tape hiss out only dulls the sound more. The balance shifts to one channel for a few seconds during Heartbreaker’s guitar solo which contains only Bouree. Heartbreaker goes directly into Bring It On Home. The audience does get a little talkative during White Summer. It’s minor, but annoying. The cut at the end of White Summer occurs after Page finishes his soloing. Dead silence follows the cut with audience clapping fading in. Even though its ending is cut, Moby Dick is still 19 minutes long! (Brian Ingham Aug 97)
The recording from the 29th is very good, clear and significantly brighter than the recording from the 28th (probably a result of being closer to the stage). It also has less tape hiss. There is some initial distortion during White Summer when the drums enter. Page has an obsession with playing For What It’s Worth during How Many More Times. Not only does he use it as an introduction, but reintroduces it after the first verse and includes it during the medley. Curiously, Plant doesn’t sing any of its lyrics. The tape ends as they are getting into Tobacco Road. (Brian Ingham Aug 97)
