"Bootleg Top 6 of Led Zeppelin"

Consequence of Sound has announced the "bootleg Top 6 of Led Zeppelin".

(posting from Consequence of Sound without permission)

Personally, I love London Playhouse Theatre on June 27, 1969. Especially, the ending drum solo of  "How Many More Times" is a masterpiece (unranked).
Then, LA Forum in 1970 (had been denoted as Led Zepplin) also was great with a good stereo.

Even so, it is surprising that listen to even old days of sound for more than 40 years.
