We hear a solo John Cale performance at the Bottom Line, NYC from August 8, 1984. It is INTENSE. I play Paris 1919, Buffalo Ballet, and Fear is a Man’s Best Friend (which is nucking futs at the end). Good stuff.
January 15, 15, 1973 Stoke UK – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
January 15, 1973 Stoke UK. A great soundboard recording remastered and remixed by NakedEye25 to sound even better. We hear Dancing Days, Over The Hills, and Dazed. A great show from a unique tour of small venues in the UK. It’s neat hearing the biggest band in the world playing 800 seat halls again.
Bonus – October 3, 1980: The Heart of Markness Classic Rock Podcast
We hear a great Mike Millard master recording of YES in LA on Oct 3, 1980 in support of their transition album, Drama. Trevor Horn sings beautifully and the whole band is on fire. We hear Machine Messiah, Tempus Fugit, and And You And I. Amazing performance and recording.
Ep. 216 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
We hear 4 songs from Led Zeppelin in Hiroshima on Sept. 27, 1971 on their first Japanese Tour. Great stuff on this tour and this show. I play Heartbreaker, Since I’ve Been Loving You, a 20 minute Whole Lotta Love w/ myriad medleys, and Communication Breakdown. Awesome and joyous.
Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page and More to benefit Ronnie Lane
We hear songs from every featured artist on the ARMS tour, Eric Clapton, Joe Cocker, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, and Ronnie Lane. From Dec. 1, 1983 at the Cow Palace, SF, we have one of the biggest lineups ever for a benefit for Ronnie Lane. Great music by great artists for a sick friend, and the return of Jimmy Page to public life.
Ep. 215 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
The 1st of 3 nights at the Winterland in San Fran, Led Zeppelin are absolutely incendiary. This is April 25, 1969 and we’re nearing the end of telecaster Jimmy. We hear Train Kept A Rollin’, maybe the best You Shook Me ever (Robert’s voice!), and As Long As I Have which is a kitchen sink of covers and references (Bags Groove? Damn). This is an amazing show of young hungry Zep leapt from the gate and reaching their stride.
The Heart of Markness Classic Rock Podcast – WRXT March 23, 1978 Chicago
We hear a scorching set from Warren Zevon on WRXT Chicago radio from 3/23/78, on his Excitable Boy tour. I play When Jonny Strikes Up The Band, Mohammad’s Radio, Werewolves, and Roland. Great sound. Great songs. Great set.
Ep. 214 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
We hear songs from Led Zeppelin’s June 17, 1980 tour opener in Dortmund Germany. The band were stripped down and ready to rock. We hear Nobody’s Fault But Mine, Trampled Underfoot, and a rollicking Whole Lotta Love/Heartbreaker combo.
