The LZIV A9/B6 record. Audio sounds close to pristine to me and this record plays great. Cymbals crash. Vocals soar. Guitar solos scourge in Black Dog and beyond. Bass sound rolls down under in Rock and Roll. Superb. Piano pings and tinkles. At this listening volume my ears are going to be ringing, better turn it down. Onto Evermore. Acoustic string instruments and opening vocals hard to not become completely immersed in listening to. Glad I bought this record. The vinyl is super quiet. Sandy Denny's upper register vocals sweetly (and strongly) bellow. Stairway's spirit is a nice, mellow, change of pace, even as the instrumentation builds to the transitional instrumental section. Plant's voice is so 'sweet' and plaintive through the main section of the song. A little less detail and clarity in part of the second section as it seems to get over-saturated except that the guitar solo and the drumming into the vocal section sound perfect and distinct to my ears. There's a consistency of sound throughout this version of the album that I appreciate. I had to turn down MMH some. So many vocals - it was a very heady sound. It was a little too strong imo. Turned the listening volume back up for Four Sticks. Those electric guitars do sound close to savage here and the bass and percussion immense in the post-verse sections. Stand-out track to my ears. Then those synths come in on top of it all. Outstanding. That studio track is a mind-blower! Back to Cali and the sweeter-voiced Plant. Nice to hear the return of the acoustic stringed instruments. The vocal in the bridge sounds not harsh nor screechy to me. Throughout the song it seems to me to have a 'nicer' or rounder sound to it. Such a very short but cool effect at the end with what sounds like a 'kind of good-bye' coda. WTLB required a listening volume adjustment (lower) for me to better match the volume and eq and my level of ear comfort. A little too strong in the mid and higher range for me. Overall, for me, this record was a treat to find in this kind of playing condition and sound. Sounded very different than the CCR debut! My ears are singing so no more listening.
