Dedicated To Anyone Who Got Divorced Today is a six disc set on The Chronicles Of Led Zeppelin which presents all three tape sources for the wild March 12th, 1975 show in Long Beach on Zeppelin’s tenth US tour. The first three discs contain the complete but distorted show and the fourth disc has the half hour long Mike Millard fragment with “Stairway To Heaven” and the encore set.
Of interest is the new but incomplete tape source on discs five and six. Recently surfaced, this is a very good recording with emphasis on the lower end, as is common with many Zeppelin audience recordings from 1975.
The tape is complete for the first half of the show but has a small cut after “Trampled Underfoot” and cuts out in “Dazed And Confused” at 28:17 during the second verse eliminating the coda of the piece, “Stairway To Heaven” and the first encore “Whole Lotta Love,” ”The Crunge” and “Black Dog.” There is almost four solid minutes of cheering before the second encore “Heartbreaker.”
The cuts are strange enough to suggest intentionality behind them, or else some kind of story about the tape recorder not working during that missing half hour. TCOLZ in keeping with their philosophy present the tapes unremastered in their natural state. Some collectors might not agree with this, but it is a way to hear and to listen to the shows unhindered.If you liked this review, buy me a cup of joe. (Suggested: $3 a shot or $7.5 for a double)
