Poster's notes:
I went into a record store, whose name escapes me at the moment, in
Bethesda, MD about 1982 and asked the good fellow behind the counter if he had
any Led Zeppelin bootlegs.  He laughed and proceeded to cover the counter with
well over 50 recordings from nearly every year.  I settled on this one because it
was complete, the most recent he had, and contained a couple songs from
In Through The Out Door.  Although I had no idea of the sound quality of the boot,
in those days you just shelled out your $45 and hoped for the best....

I made a cassette copy immediately, and carefully stored the record away in
anti-static record sleeves....

A buddy of mine for years has been insisting I transfer this to CD.  I always thought
I had much better quality Led stuff to listen to so it went to the bottom of the
priority list.  Once he heard I married  my turntable setup with my computer,
he was right there, johnny-on-the-spot asking me to do this one first.  Plus since
we're in a LedFest at the moment, I thought I'd contribute.

So Baxter, this is for you.

I went after the super annoying pops in the recording, but there are
LP crackles that are still there.  Nothing that should deter you though.  This
was literally the second time I ever tracked these LP's.

I ran no EQ, added no effects, and did nothing to 'improve' this recording as my
philosophy is: what sounds good on my speakers will probably NOT sound good
on yours.

Enjoy!  Don't you just LOVE all this Led that's surfacing?
