On September 29, Japanese bootleg label Empress Valley released a partial soundboard recording of Led Zeppelin’s September 29, 1971 performance in Osaka, Japan.
The new release isn’t the full soundboard recording of the show, as it cuts out many tracks, even missing some tracks which were released as promotional singles by Empress Valley.
This bootleg was released in three different variants, including two limited edition box sets and a standard edition. Here are photos of all of the editions of the new bootleg release:
The limited edition “OH-SHOW” box set
This edition was limited to 100 copies and featured the new soundboard release on two CDs, as well as the existing audience recording on three CDs.
The box set includes a large poster, a sticker, and a small replica poster:

This slimmed down box set was limited to 200 copies and included two CDs which feature the new soundboard release.
The standard “How The East Was Won” release
