It is often noted as one of the band's best if not the best performances. It is also distinguished by its clear sound. The concert was recorded by a member of the audience, Mike Millardand was later released illegally on vinyl without the permission of the band or the taper.

Millard's recording remains one of the best-known Led Zeppelin bootlegs. Listen To This, Eddie is highly regarded amongst collectors not only because of the highly energetic performance by the band but also because it was captured in exceptionally good audio quality.
It is believed that he recorded this particular show from row six. The complete Millard recording lasts minutes and includes the entire concert including encores. It was the first of six shows at the Los Angeles Forum by Led Zeppelin, which came towards the end of its North American concert tour. The performance itself is regarded by some critics as being one of the best concerts of the tour,  with Jimmy Page performing lengthy solos and John Bonham playing drums heavily, yet with precision.
Robert Plant is very talkative and despite the damage done to his voice and range from constant touring he sounds quite good for this point in the band's history. The band is also open for lengthy improvisations, as evidenced on " No Quarter ", on which John Paul Jones guides the band to multiple instrumental jams. There are two unconfirmed theories about the meaning of the title "Listen To This Eddie".
Neither theory has firm evidence to back it up. The first theory is that it is a reference to Eddie Van Halen of the band Van Halenwho in interviews has criticised the playing ability of Led Zeppelin guitarist, Jimmy Page.
As a player, he's very good in the studio. I never saw him play well live. He's very sloppy. He plays like he's got a broken hand and he's two years old. But if you put out a good album and play like a two-year-old live. What's the purpose? However, the recording was made at a time when Mr Van Halen was relatively unknown thus the attribution to Guitar Solo - Led Zeppelin - Listen To This Eddie (Part 3) is likely apocryphal. According to O'Connor, the "Eddie" in the Working Girl - The Members - Working Girl is audio engineer Eddie Kramerand not Eddie Van Halen, implying that even Kramer would be impressed Guitar Solo - Led Zeppelin - Listen To This Eddie (Part 3) such an outstanding bootleg recording.
The "Eddie" in this case refers to Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jamwho asked Young to take over the concert for him when he became too ill to sing. Many audience members expressed disappointment and impatience with the older musician, but most heard out his lengthy set, which included pieces from the Mirror Ball album Young had recorded with Pearl Jam. It is considered by collectors to be one of the highlight performances of Young's decades-long career.
