24 & 25th May 1975 (compilation)
Earls Court, London.
Soundboard, plus one track from audience source.
I chose the title 'Blasphemy' to represent that this is NOT for the serious Led Zeppelin collector.
It is an edit to give a complete set from the London 1975 shows from soundboard sources as far as
possible, and does not include tracks from the official DVD relase. Only "Tangerine" and the first
20 seconds of "Going to California" have had to be taken from an audeince source. The audience noise
has also been edited to make the concert fit on 3CDs.
There is nothing �definitive� about this compilation, it is meant as an introduction to the
music performed by Led Zeppelin at what may have been the peak of their live performances in 1975.
If you buy the official releases, and mix the recordings from those with this you could make a much improved version.

This compilation represents a complete set from the shows Led Zeppelin performed
at Earls Court, London in 1975. None of the officially released tracks are included.
As far a possible tracks are taken from soundboard sources.
Other versions of this compilation could be made, this is simply one that I have made
from the sources I have available, and that fits the trading rules of �Dime�.
Edits have been made to the talking and crown noise between
the tracks to allow the compilation to fit onto 3 disks,
and also to cut down on some of the longer breaks.
If you wish to get the officially released tracks from these shows then I would strongly recommend that you buy:
Led Zeppelin DVD
