Since there were comments along these lines the last time around, your humble seeder would like to set the record straight in advance:
The phrase "blows away any previous version" refers to any previous version of rec1. There are three known recorders of the Led Zeppelin set, and this is the best rendition of the best recording of this show. It isn't the longest recording, but it is the best, and yes, it does blow the previous version back to 1969.
Back to your regularly scheduled program!
Edit-I'm not that much a fan of Zeppelin anymore,but figured some might enjoy this!
