Led Zeppelin – Belfast 1971

Ep. 266 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast

This show is a monster. Not only is it a 1971 show, making it great by default, it is also the first show with songs from Zep 4 (still 8 months from release), and it’s also one of Robert Plant’s strongest shows ever. So, it’s a winner.

I featured this show on Episode 127 where I played all the debut performances of Stairway, Rock and Roll, and Going to Calafornia. This time I’m playing the opening of the show with an incendiary Immigrant Song–>Heartbreaker, and the finale with a viking raid of a performance of Bring It on Home. Robert’s harmonica work is brilliant on top of everything.

Page/Plant – Bizarre Festival Aug. 23, 1998

Ep. 265 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast

On August 23, 1998 Jimmy Page and Robert Plant played on a “wet, miserable field” in the rain at the Bizzare Festival, in Cologne/Koln Germany. They were touring in support of Walking Into Clarksdale, which was produced/engineered by the late Steve Albini (RIP).

This is a fantastic, professionally broadcast, performance and all systems are go with Jimmy on fire,and Robert’s voice strong and in control. It’s brilliant. I play two songs off Clarksdale and then a very cool performance of Spoonful into a frenetic Whole Lotta Love.

I wrap it all up with a clip of Steve Albini talking about working with Jimmy and Robert, in an insightful, if irreverent, interview. Good stuff.

Them Crooked Vultures Las Vegas 2010

Ep. 264 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast

Them Crooked Vultures is a band with John Paul Jones, Dave Grohl, and Josh Homme and they rock. Hard. This show is from April 17, 2010 in Las Vegas, and it rocks. Hard.
I play Mind Eraser, No Chaser, New Fang, and Warsaw. These men are from Led Zeppelin(!), Foo Fighters, Nirvana, and Queens of the Stone Age. Legends all. It’s a great one.
