This is another one that came to me in a trade with a very good friend of mine, unfortunately we don't know which version it is. I've compared the times with every release there is of this show, including the new versions " Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha", and " The Woody Woodrocker Show" by Tarantura, and the times are the closest to that version, but the opening has the problems that " Twist" by TDOLZ and " Complete Central Park" by Sanctuary have, that the vocals come in so loud and clear that they distort the sound and performance of " Train Kept-A-Rollin'", so to be on the safe side, I'm just calling it " New York, Central Park, 1969". One thing mentioned on Underground uprising is that those versions contain tape hiss, not loud tape hiss, it's supposed to be very soft, and after listening to this tape again I personally don't hear tape hiss, I can hear some distortion from time to time, but that's what I hear.
But it does indeed look like this could indeed be either " Twist" or " Complete Central Park", but the times don't match up, maybe someone could help me identify this one.
The sound is really crisp and clear, just full of energy.
There is the disturbance during " Train Kept-A-Rollin'", and when " How Many More Times" comes on the sound becomes kind of muffled, but they won't distract you from listening.
The taper must've been really really close to the stage for the sound to be this good.
A very interesting version of " How Many More Times" that includes " the Woody Woodpecker" theme song, really cool, and something you wouldn't expect from a band like Zeppelin.
I love mostly every Zeppelin show there is, but these short festival performances, ones that are really short and sweet to be some of their best work. They were great musicians, and their jams were great, but sometimes they went a little too long, and in these short performances they said all that they needed to say within a certain period of time. Just my opinion.
This is a very good show that I would recommend that people should pick up.
