This is the last show that Zeppelin ever played at the L.A. Forum, the culmination of a six night stand at the venue that mirrored a similar
stand at the MSG venue in New York earlier in June. There seems to be two sources for this show, one as recorded by the renowned Mike
Millard & to his usual exacting standards, the 2nd source listed by argenteumastrum as 'incomplete 2nd audience recording.'
This show has had various releases on various labels over the years, so I include this website review, specific to this particular release...
"The final concert at the Inglewood forum (June 27, 1977) by the entire band. The whole band turn in a rather erratic show. The opening
four numbers are really great (probably one of the best OTHAFA solos ever) as is Kashmir and NQ (very unusual rendition). TYG has many
mistakes (as is typical of this point in the tour) on JP's part, TU and STH also have a *tired* feel to them. The main highlight here
is a surprise: The infamous Guitar/Electronics solo. It's got to be the longest, most improvised, and well, just plain "best" version of
'77. Running close to half an hour, it has Page creating sounds and riffs (even from WLL and Heartbreaker) that haven't even been hinted
at the beginning of the tour. Pure experimental genius. It's interesting how this piece evolved over the tour, each time Page adding new
parts. In contrast, the following track, ALS (which I consider to be the general highlight of '77) is one of the worst ever. Plant
forgets verses, Bonzo's playing is awful, and JP's in a completely different world. The sound of this 4CD set is basically excellent, and
at times better balanced than (although it doesn't have the *punch* of) the "Eddie" recording. This TDOLZ version is noticeably better
than the Silver Rarities release. Not really a "Must-Have" but definitely one to pick up eventually, even for the most casual collector.

There is a mastering flaw on this release, on all pressings - on Disc 3, track 4, 'Dancing Days', there's a 29 second repeat of banter at the
end of the track - this has been removed with Audacity. TDOLZ also unnecessarily spread this release over four discs - it will fit snugly on

Don't turn this to mp3, decode to wav using tlh, & burn them instead...
