I performed a review and cleaned up some possible ambiguity for those who found the
initial post confusing. Hopefully, the post will be easier to understand.

Cheers and all the best.

mossa Notes: 
--"Warm-Up Introduction" cuts in
--"Number Two Pencil" cuts in
--slight hiss reduction done

vanillag NOTES (2/3/2023): 
--Thanks so much to whomever originally recorded & shared out this the Radiators 1994 show & to mossa for the transfer & sharing of his copy far & wide for all of us.  Absolutely Appreciated!! 
--there's not very much missing at all from "Number Two Pencil" as it starts well before the first verse & still includes over 2&1/2 minutes of jamming before it even gets to those first lyrics
--I added more detail to the band members info & setlist info
--corrected some song titles toward how they appear on the original albums
--added more detail to the venue info 
--This venue no longer exists & I can't believe I found info on it & even pictures (especially since there was scant little to find on this place on an initial search & a generic name like "The Terrace" gets confused with so many other places & businesses of the same name, etc.), but thru sheer determination & cross-referencing detective work, I was successful...full history of it is in the link directly below, but the long & short of it is that it was built & began as "The Terrace" in 1951, then the "Villa Capri" in 1957, then "Terrace Club" in 1965, then hit hard financial times by the early 1970s & was rented out to the "Texas Opry House" in 1974, but a bounced check from them meant the venue did not make it to 1975.  So, it was dormant from 1975-1977 when the great Willie Nelson bought the entire Terrace Motor Hotel & Convention Center (with 300 rooms & two swimming pools!!) in May 1977 by assuming a million dollar note & handing over $5,000 in cash.  He & his partners worked like hell to overhaul the place & install 1800 seats & new paint job & such & re-opened as "Austin Opry House" on 1977-06-28 with Willie Nelson & Waylon Jennings kicking off opening night.  Place now included a recording studio called "Arlyn".  Things were all good until a former partner from the 1974 run of "Texas Opry House" sued them for trademark infringement & after a long trial & another cease & desist on using the 'Opry' name from Nashville’s "Grand Ol’ Opry", their hands were thrown up & in September 1978, the name was officially changed to "Austin Opera House", though everyone still just called it "the Opry House" & the ads for it retained the name & logo of "Austin Opry House" for another year or so.  Willie sold his majority share of the Opera House in 1988 & then the seating was pulled out & it was renamed “The Terrace” like the old days.  That lasted until sometime in 1995 when the building was sold to the YWCA (the link below claims the selling to the YWCA & the ending of the music shows there happened in 1993, but obviously that is not the case as this Radiators show went down in 1994 & I also see some SXSW shows that happened here in March of 1995...so sometime in 1995 or just after is when that sale to the YWCA would have taken place by my estimation).  Ownership changed hands a few times since then & apparently there was a proposal to go before City Council on 2022-01-27 to re-open the place as a music venue by reaching a compromise with the neighborhood where they would cut capacity there to only 1000 peeps...I don't know if that was successful or not.

--created an md5 checksum file 
--added pics of the venue/building from what it looks like now & also back in the day when it was the Austin Opry House.

Led Zeppelin
"LA Forum"
June 25, 1972
Inglewood Forum, Inglewood, California
Cobra Standard 024
Original Pressed CDR>EAC Safe Mode>WAV>SHN
Very good audience recording, a little bass heavy in parts, but everything
comes trough clear.

Disc 1
01 Immigrant Song
02 Heartbreaker
03 Over The Hills And Far Away
04 Black Dog
05 Since I've Been Loving You
06 Stairway To Heaven
07 Going To California
08 That's The Way
09 Tangerine
10 Bron-Y-Aur Stomp

Disc 2
01 Dazed And Confused (includes Walter's Walk,The Crunge)
02 What Is And What Should Never Be
03 Dancing Days
04 Moby Dick

Disc 3
01 Whole Lotta Love (includes Everybody Needs Somebody To Love,
Boogie Chillun',Let's Have A Party,Hello Mary Lou,
Heartbreak Hotel,Slow Down,Going Down Slow,The Shape I'm In)
02 Rock And Roll
03 The Ocean
04 Louie Louie/Every Day People/Organ Solo
05 Thank You
06 Communication Breakdown
07 Bring It On Home

In the immortal lines of Luis Rey;
"Using the audience as a phenomenal cushion as Immigrant Song crashes
with genteel brutality over their heads".

Not as lyrical as Luis, in my own words;
"About 180 minutes of sonic perfection, as long as 1975 and 1977 shows, but with
much more dynamics and contrasts. This show (and Long Beach) can happily exist
next to How 'The West Was Won', I think."

Not to be misunderstood, this is the audience recording from the show
Jimmy used (the multitrack/mobile studio recording) to be part of
'How The West Was Won', which, if your downloading this should be in your collection
