Led Zeppelin - 1980-07-03 - Mannheim, Germany - REPOST

Led Zeppelin - 1980-07-03 - Mannheim, Germany
Eisstadion, Mannheim, Germany

For European heavy metal and hard rock fans, the summer of 1980 marked the end of an era - for it was that summer that Led Zeppelin embarked on what would end up being its final tour of Europe. Countless bootlegs resulted from that tour; one of the better sounding is The Last Day in Mannheim, which was recorded from the soundboard at the Eisstadion in Mannheim, Germany, on July 3, 1980 - only about two and a half months before John Bonham's substance-related death on September 25 of that year.
This double-CD offers generally good sound quality (except for some occasional static), and the British metallers are in good to excellent form on songs from In Through the Out Door (including "Hot Dog," "In the Evening," and "All My Love") as well as scorchers that range from "Black Dog," "Trampled Under Foot," and "Nobody's Fault But Mine" to "Communication Breakdown" and "Rock and Roll." On previous tours, Zeppelin could be long-winded at times, but you won't find any half-hour
versions of "Dazed and Confused" or "No Quarter" on this bootleg. The longest performances (which include "Kashmir," "Achille's Last Stand," and the overexposed "Stairway to Heaven") clock in at around ten or 11 minutes, and Zeppelin doesn't get into a lot of extended jams. All things considered, The Last Day in Mannheim paints an exciting, if imperfect, picture of Zeppelin's final months. (Alex Henderson, All Music Guide)
