Another CBM original. I would place the release date around spring or summer of 1975.

Side 2: Rap / In My Time Of Dying (not listed) / The Song Remains The Same / The Rain Song (listed as Cash Me In)

However, on a Japanese bootleg blog (that contained this word of warning: “needle jump record quality is bad”), the track listing is given as:
SIDE-A: ROCK’N ROLL/ SICK AGAIN/ OVER THE HILLS AND FAR AWAY/ IN MY TIME OF DYING (CUT)
SIDE-B: SONG REMAIN THE SAME/ THE RAIN SONG (CUT)/ KASHMIR
SIDE-C: NO QUARTER
SIDE-D: STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN/ HOW MANY MORE TIMES -DAZED CONFUSED-THE HUNTER-LITTLE SQUEEZE
From theyearofledzeppelin.com: “Plant continues to have trouble with his voice, struggling to retain some sense of melody during the opening numbers. Page begins to warm up during the guitar solo at the end of Sick Again. As the song ends, Plant tells the crowd “it’s our great pleasure to be just about back.” Page and Jones lose each other for a moment at the end of the guitar solo during Over the Hills and Far Away. In My Time of Dying is introduced as “what you might call… traditional.” Page’s fingers fly across the fretboard during The Song Remains the Same. No Quarter is absolutely fantastic. The instrumental section is an epic journey.
