Led Zeppelin At Knebworth 1979

Ep. 79 – August 4 1979 The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast

I tackle the legendary Aug 4, 1979 outdoor concert by Led Zeppelin at Knebworth. This is considered by many to be the last great Zep show and it is a doozy. I use a great matrix recording of this show that you’ll enjoy.

Elton John – LA Forum 1974

October 5, 1974 – Mike Millard Master

I talk about the 1972/73 UK Tour of Led Zeppelin, Robert’s voice issues, Zep’s final UK tour, and I play some of an unreleased multitrack recording of the Jan 22 Southampton show, and I also bitch about my grumpy health woes. I play How Many More Times/Communication Breakdown and Thank You.

Ep. 78 – Led Zeppelin NYC 1971

Sept 3, 1971 Madison Square Garden – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast

Led Zeppelin played New York City on Sept. 3, 1971 and the crowd was wild! So wild they stormed the stage and it collapsed. This is a tape in which the crowd at times is louder than the band, but the show itself is amazing. This is a vastly underrated Zep show. Jimmy’s playing has an edge I’d not heard before.

I play tracks from an excellent recording of Bob Dylan on 9/8/89 in Costa Mesa, California. This is another beautiful Mike Millard First Generation recording, and it’s a great show. Dylan plays almost all his songs from Highway 61 and Blonde on Blonde era, and their awesome.

Led Zeppelin – Winterland 1969

The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast – April 26, 1969

This is one of the best early Led Zeppelin shows around. April 26, 1969 at Bill Graham’s Winterland is a must have show, if only because it’s (probably) the first ever performance of Whole Lotta Love! Every single song in this set is golden. You can’t miss it.

RIP Eddie Van Halen

Van Halen Live London 1978

What a loss. This is a humble tribute to the last Great Guitar God. Featuring music from June 1, 1978 London, where the opened for Black Sabbath, and blew them off the stage. There will never be another like him. Rest in Peace, Eddie Van Halen.

Jethro Tull Pasadena 1977

Mike Millard Master – The Heart of Markness Classic Rock Podcast

We have another Mike Millard Master release from JEMS, and it’s Jethro Tull on the opening night of their tour in support of Songs from the Wood album, January 14, 1977. This may be the best sounding stealth recording I’ve heard. Unreal.
