Led Zeppelin - 1980-06-23 - Bremen, Germany

Led Zeppelin - 1980-06-23 - Bremen, Germany
Stadthalle, Bremen

Plant barks aggressively as the band races through an explosive Train Kept a Rollin'.
Bonzo forgets some of the breaks during Nobody's Fault But Mine, robbing the song of its dynamic tension. Plant's voice is a bit rough during In the Evening, he has trouble reaching some of the higher notes. The Rain Song is fantastic. As the song ends, Plant attempts to calm the rowdy crowd so Bonzo can introduce Hot Dog. Following All My Love, Plant announces "this is one we must dedicate to Phil Carson of Atlantic Records who, if he doesn't get his shit together shortly, will be... Trampled Underfoot." Bonzo mistakenly plays through the break following the guitar solo. Plant asks the crowd to stop pushing forward prior to a lackluster Since I've Been Loving You. As the song comes to a close, Bonzo can be heard shouting "be quiet, you cunt!" at the impatient crowd. The band plods through an uninspired Achilles Last Stand. Page gets a bit lost in the arrangement toward the end of the song. Plant delivers a powerful performance during Kashmir. Stairway to Heaven features an excellent guitar solo. Bonzo fumbles through the drum outburst at the end of Rock and Roll. The band closes the show with a violent Communication Breakdown. As the song ends, Plant announces "thank you, it's nice to be... back, goodnight." A rather uninspired performance overall.

The tape is another excellent soundboard recording, briefly augmented by a fairly clear audience source.

Freezers Sampler T2

In my humble opinion.. this is the best "Bootleg" version of this show. There has been some discussion on various sites what Analog Generation EVSD used for their version. I don't Know what they used, Ive seen on a couple of sites 11th Gen & Unknown Gen. Maybe thats why they called it "The Battle of Baton Rouge". For those who would like to compare, and With Freezers consent I've added the two samplers Freezer has circulated of this show from his master cassettes. ("Winston").
