A Mike Millard 1st Gen Recording – The Heart of Markness Classic Rock Podcast
A first gen Mike Millard record of Bruce Springsteen at the LA Sports Arena on August 23, 1981 has been released, and we’re going to give it a listen. This is a beautifully recorded high energy Bruce show from The River tour. Good stuff.
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.
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.
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.
September 8th, 1989 – Mike Millard First Gen Recording
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.
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.
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.
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.
