At last, EV has managed to continue its Soundboard Revolution by releasing this title
featuring a newly surfaced SB from the first show that the band held at MSG on 7 June
1977. As rather expected, its sound quality has turned out to be unfortunately not as good
as the SBs made available from a number of shows in 1975 and more or less similar to those
already available from some shows in 1977, sounding drier and more compressed. It sounds
somewhat stiff. More precisely, I will rank it in between EV's "The Powhatan Confederacy"
(from the show on 28 May 1977) and the same label's "Bringing The House Down" (from the
show on 26 May 1977). The last one sounds best in terms of the range and the balance among
the three titles which were recorded at proximate times. In any event, it is certainly
good to have another SB from 1977, especially from one of the shows at MSG, since there
was no great audience recording of any of those shows, despite the general belief of
people who witnessed that the levels of the bands performances at those shows were great.
If my memory serves me correctly, Jimmy Page has once revealed that the atmosphere for the
first night at MSG in 1977 was "electrifying." Now we can confirm, through this SB, that
the in natural response to such an atmosphere, the band's playing at the show is gutsy and
generally excellent from 1977 standard. Every member of the band is in good shape. Now we
can confirm that the band's performance at this show should truly be comparable to those
at LA Forum that have long been available through better sounding audience recordings. In
addition, I note that the acoustic set on CD2 is very well recorded and sounds nice in
this SB. However, "Black Country Woman" is cut very short for some unknown reason. It's
regrettable. Notably, "No Quarter" at this show includes another enjoyable "Nutcracker" section.
However, the band loses its way in the middle of "Kashmir," as it often happened. The band
loses its way again in the latter part of "Rock And Roll" after Robert mistakenly
attempted to finish the song earlier. Overall, however, the bands first return to MSG
since February 1975 was definitely a triumph for the band.

The bonus 3CDs feature the newly surfaced audience recording of the show on 10 June 1977,
although the paper insert incorrectly refers to "June 6, 1977." At the end of Disc 3, it
also includes a SB recording of Jimmy's guitar solo as performed in LA on 23 June 1977.
Therefore, the bonus discs are basically the same as what Wendy released in its title
"Relic From A Different Dream" but the EV version of the SB is said to be longer than
Wendy's. Let's hope that we would in the near future be able to enjoy the legendary
Badgeholders show with a SB in its entirety.

The 6CD set version of the title comes in a package similar to that for EV Rampagin' Cajun. Its outer case features two photos of the Zeppelin ship waiting to take off (with
the band members loon symbol marks added on its wings) and flying over the skyscraper,
while its three-way foldable inner case features several stage and backstage shots of the
