I'm pretty sure this pic is from Milan, Italy 1971 , but great job DavidZoso:

It is listed as Milan 1971 on some other sites but if you look close Jimmy is wearing a red vest at the Milan show and those plaid pants he loves in the pic below. But in the pic you pointed out- no vest and looks like blue jeans he is wearing.

A HISTORIC night. One question: Are those WEM amps in the 12th photo? I thought by 71 he was using his customary Marshall's?

The WEMs were the PA system at Belfast.

For UK March/April 1971 Page was using a hybrid Hiwatt/Marshall setup. At Belfast, he was also using a Unidrive pedal, so it probably explains why he had that hybrid setup, daisychained for only that tour. Likely so he could have more gain on tap. For Summer 71, Japan 71, and UK Fall 71 Page would be back to the double Hiwatt setup, with the Marshall around for the theremin only. He'd go all Marshall in 1972. The Orange amps debuted in Montreux in 1971 were only used by Jones for his keyboards, even though Orange had custom-made them for Page. In 1972 and 1973 those same Orange amps were finally used by Page, but only for his theremin. 1975 on was all Marshall.

Wasn't after this show that they went to record the vocals to black dog because they liked Plants vocals so much that night?

Maybe I don't have my facts straight?
