The Spectrum, Buffalo U, Nov16 and Dec 11, 70. 

Interesting to see a review of a bootleg...

So this Los Angeles recording went from pressed to vinyl to being reviewed in a Buffalo University newspaper in about two months. Astonishingly fast for 1970, when you think of it, and a real testament to the popularity of the group that Autumn.

That is crazy Steve. That was my first Zeppelin bootleg and also my favorite. All happening in 1970. Amazing.

^^^ Despite living and working in what was arguably Led Zeppelin's spiritual home (Los Angeles) Robert Hilburn would spend the 1970s giving their albums consistently negative reviews.

What a great review. Surprised by the "haven't played live beforee releasing this album" bit, and laughed at "if they stay together long enough they could be BIG."

Thanks for posting!!!

Some of the reviews are really great, should receive a lot more radio play in Slovenia! Perhaps time changes it quite a bit. 

There is a lot of suffering and struggle in life and that can create some beautiful music and also respect,

nothing to get worried at all, no one can really get back at you in any way, for creating such wonderful life and music

out of obvious suffering and constant focus on the light of life!
