The Balloon Boy’s Rock Carnival In Tokyo (Empress Valley EVSD 513/514/515)
Budokan, Tokyo, Japan – September 24th, 1971
Disc 1: Immigrant Song, Heartbreaker, Since I’ve Been Loving You, Black Dog, Dazed And Confused
Disc 2: Stairway To Heaven, Celebration Day, That’s The Way, Going To California, Tangerine, What Is And What Should Never Be, Moby Dick
Disc 3: Whole Lotta Love, organ solo, Thank You, Communication Breakdown
Empress Valley apparantly use the complete source that was used for discs two and three of TDOLZ’s Light And Shade. This tape is marred by excessive distortion making it basically unlistenable. When CMR asked a collector to write a review, he refused, saying he didn’t want to sit through this again. I wonder if Empress Valley will release another 1975 soundboard for collectors instead of stuff like this….
