Japan: 1983

Source: Audience recording from the second performance of Led Zeppelin’s last ever tour, recorded at Sporthalle, Cologne, 18 June 1980

Quality rating: Vgm “The recording is fairly close to the stage and has an expansive sound to it. The vocals push the audience tape to the edge of distortion but the tape holds.” (argenteumastrum.com). The recording lasts for 107 minutes, which captures almost the complete show. A soundboard recording from this night, 103 minutes in length, appeared on CD in 1991.

Which one was the first bootleg released from Led Zeppelin’s Over Europe ’80 tour? Was it Zoso ’80 (Mannheim, 1st night]?
