Focusing on a March 21, 1970 show at Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, Canada, Mudslide was among the more highly regarded bootleg LPs by Led Zeppelin that surfaced in the 1970s. The original version came from Trademark of Quality, one of the '70s top bootleg labels. Vinyl reissues of Mudslide were subsequently provided by Mushroom and other bootleggers. It's easy to understand why collectors held the Mudslide LP in such high regard -- the sound quality is excellent, and Zeppelin is triumphant on gems that include "Heartbreaker," "Communication Breakdown," "Whole Lotta Love," and "Since I've Been Loving You." Mudslide is a bootleg that serious Zeppelin fans were thrilled to acquire.
