Notes from Underground Uprising.....

 Sweet Brummy Roll- Empress Valley EVSD-243 ~ 245                          
 3CDs in a double jewel case.                                              
 Birmingham Odeon, Birmingham 16 December 1972, with Brighton Dome ,       
 Brighton, 20 December 1972                                                
 Two completely new shows that have recently surfaced, pulled out of the   
 hat by Empress Valley once again, how do they manage to release so many   
 exciting new shows I wonder. The sound quality for Birmingham is almost   
 very good, with Plant's voice talking in between songs sounding slightly  
 distant. This source is from the master tape. Empress Valley have done a  
 very good job in beefing up this tape, and the CDs sound louder and       
 punchier than the master tape. There is a lot of tape wobble during       
 Stairway To Heaven and the beginning of the Whole Lotta Love Medley. One  
 point of great interest is that early on in The Rain Song John Paul Jones 
 has big problems with the Mellotron, which goes out of tune, and he had to
 scurry across to the organ and play that instrument for the rest of the   
 song. The first and only time I think in a Led Zeppelin concert, most     
 surprising considering what a precocious instrument the Mellotron is.     
 Brighton is a real gem, sadly only a fragment, taken from a first         
 generation copy. It was recorded by a teenager who had little money for   
 cassettes, and he recorded over much of this concert later at a Rory      
 Gallagher concert. What a terrible shame as it was an amazing concert by  
 all accounts. The sound on this is very good indeed. (Jules McTrainspotter

 Sweet Brummy Roll 3CD Empress Valley Supreme Discs EVSD 243-245           
 Birmingham Odeon 16th December 1972/Brighton Dome 20th December 1972      
 The latest offering from the premiere Japanese label is 2 shows from the  
 late '72/early '73 UK tour, I was looking forward to hearing this release 
 as it's the first appearance of these two shows which were played only 4  
 days apart. The tape starts off with a few words from the venue MC telling
 every one that the show is about to start. The band take the stage to a   
 comment of "Strike a light!" from one of the tapers. The tape overloads   
 for a few seconds as Rock & Roll starts but soon settles down to a        
 reasonable audience recording with Bonzo's drums a little down in the mix.
 Plant's voice is in relatively good shape for this show as he hits those  
 high notes during the verse to Over The Hills And Far Away.               
 Unfortunately, none of Plant's between song comments the his home crowd   
 can be made out due to the taper being up in the stalls, this lack of     
 volume also affects the bow solo in Dazed And Confused and the beginning  
 of Stairway To Heaven. The Rain Song contains a garbled section of tape   
 which also affects the other side of the C120 cassette during Dazed And   
 Confused. Dazed And Confused interestingly contains a snippet of the      
 descending riff from 'In The Light' during the final section. The Brighton
 tape is clearer than that from Birmingham and all instruments are well    
 defined, unfortunately we only have 50 minutes of this show containing    
 Black Dog, Misty Mountain Hop, Since I've Been Loving You (only 3 minute's
 worth), Whole Lotta Love and an encore of Heartbreaker. Some sources state
 that the band played a medley of Christmas songs during the encore, well  
 if they did, it's not here folks. Top marks to EVSD for finding these two 
 new shows, it's just a pity that the shows weren't swopped around, eg the 
 full Brighton show and 50 minutes of Birmingham because the Brighton show 
 is a corker! (Yage 2003 September 03)
