^^ No love for the Copenhagen 1979 shows? Those are excellent recordings.

I would definitely put those above 1972/02/19, at least in terms of quality

I think Adelaide is a more balanced recording in general. Everybody's clear and there is a nice in your face effect to it. For me 7-23 is a bit tinny and a little distorted and 7-24 is short on bass. But that is being pretty nitpicky. They are still nice recordings of great shows. 7-7-80 should be on there too. It's hard to keep it to ten.

Geez, you guys are right about that. 7/24 gives the Millard shows a run for their money. Guess I always overlooked them cuz I was never crazy about the Knebworth shows/setlist.

The Copenhagen show are probably in my top ten Zep shows ever, Jimmy is at the top of his game and Roberts voice is consistent over the whole thing

I'll always prefer the 69-72 stuff, but as far as sound quality that's about as good as it gets. Sounds very 'natural' to my ears. :stereo:

Muich 7/5/80

Possibly the very best SIBLY version melded with I'm Gonna Crawl and definitely the best sounding solo by Page that tour. IMHO
