Notes: Godfather use the same tape for San Bernardino that has been used for every other release. It first surfaced on the vinyl Berdu (Screaming Oiseau MX 7500) and for subsequent CD releases like Route 66 (Tarantura T4CD-3) and its European clone Born To Be Wild (Whole Lotta Live WLL018/019), Berdu (Cobra Standard Series 010), Born To Be Wild (Magnificent Disc MD-7201 A/B), Latter Day Saint (Tarantura TCD-62-1, 2) and Swinging In San Bernardino (Empress Valley EVSD 303/304).
The tape is a clear and verified 1st gen with wide spectrum. They state: “The transfer I use seems to be more wider and has less hiss. The cut in ‘Stairway To Heaven’ is filled with 2nd gen fragment and the quality is almost the same. The cut in ‘Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp’ is still present but has smoother edit.”
About the performance, the commonly held opinion is that although the set list isn’t as adventurous as the Seattle and Los Angeles concerts that came before and after (there are no songs from Houses Of The Holy, for example), the joy is in Jimmy Page’s improvisations throughout the entire set.<-(Info taken from Collectors Music Reviews).
