Notes: I was contacted last summer by an FBO member named Wayne Catalde. He let me know that he had the Cassettes and I was welcome to remaster them for a future tree as his way of giving back to the Zep Community. I was honored to do so. I know many of you Zep fans probably have 1/2 dozen versions of this historic show. The story behind these Cassettes is what makes this so special to me. From the local tape shop were Mike bought his blanks. A person working there noticed this same guy coming in and buying up big amounts of blanks. He asked what they were for and Millard told him that he taped concerts.
They became friends and made a deal, Free blanks for Mikes taped shows.

I have listened to alot of 'low gen' sources for this show. They all have 'Millard Markings' most common are cuts during No Quarter & Guitar solo. Those 2 songs are complete. Mike would also put in pulse channel dropouts after his tape flips & and would put silent spots on some of the songs. I guess that is how he kept track of his trades. These are clean from those 'Markings' and they are the best sounding of all the low gen versions I have heard.

I want to thank Wayne for letting me remaster this show.
I asked him to watch this thread and answer any questions or comments you might have.

This is the last one from me for awhile so please enjoy :)
