Excellent choice, good sir 😎

Kind of a no-brainer, right? Although I'm sure there are some anoraks that don't like the show.

Every show I am listening to in John Bonham's honour today is from my Baker's Dozen list of best Led Zeppelin bootlegs. Next show up...

You would think. Yeah, I'm sure there are some.

What's your full baker's dozen?

Can't argue with that when you're factoring in sound quality (excuses omitting June 19, 1972).  Interesting that you put May 23 as your second '75 show.  I would take March 12, 19 & 20 ahead of it and May 18 is my favourite Earls Court show.

Maybe it's May 18 I was thinking of...I know I like May 18 and May 23 above the other Earls Court gigs. I put the Earls Court on my list because I love the "Tangerine" and acoustic sets included in the 1975 setlist. Gives more variety.

If Mike Millard had recorded all of March 12 Long Beach or if a soundboard ever comes out, then I may revise my list and include March 12.

That makes sense.  I'm a bit torn on the 23rd vs. 25th, but I think the 24th ranks fourth at best.  It finishes really strong, but the first half is sluggish.  Never understood the "No Quarter" from the 24th being cited as a potential best-ever version either.

I just noticed that in my YouTube box this morning! Looking forward to listening to the unadulterated master.

It is amazingly clear for Youtube. I wish there were FLACs available. Better than the Genuine Masters "Collectors Edition-audio only" I have (which is a clear cut above 3 other versions I tried, even the Winston one)
