Japan: 1975. Listed as an OG release by the Japanese collector I had quoted under the LZ OG double album and I do agree with this, despite no OG – or any other number – being used on the label or cover.

The majority of this release comes from the second Osaka concert on Monday, the 9th of October 1972

Source: Incomplete very good 1st audience recording. 143 minutes.
Details: Clear recording. Page’s guitar is fairly prominent in this source but it doesn’t overwhelm the other instruments. There is some hiss though. [all detailed comments taken from argenteumastrum.com]

Bootleg LP Reference(s) source 1: Dedicated To John Henry Bonham (no label), LIVE (no label), & My Brain Hurts (Idle Mind Productions, Jester Productions & LXXXIV Series)

“Bron-Y-Aur Stomp” was taken from the first Osaka concert on the 4th, I suspect the following might apply here: “1st source, taped by Yoshiaki Sumitomo (speed issues in few places – he also recorded Osaka October 4th, 1972 1st source)”


This release was copied by Vicky Vinyl ca. ’76/’77 as MY BRAIN HURTS (with a wrong month in the sub-title):
