Led Zeppelin BBC April 1971 Pre-Broadcast

Epmix. 270 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast

This is a wonderful, clear, stereo recording of the legendary, and officially released (with a bunch of cuts and edits) April 1, 1971 performance at the Paris Theater, in London. Jonesy’s fat bass sounds so good in the left channel.

I play a nice punching Communication Breakdown with a very well represented hi-hat in the mix, and finally an epic Whole Lotta Love with a million well defined medleys (which aren’t in the official release) like Bottle Up and Go, Mess of the Blues, and a lovely For What It’s Worth. I value the complete performances as they have the juice, the magic, whereas the official release has a great Whole Lotta Love, but without all the bells and whistles which make the band magical.

Page/Plant in Sydney Feb 24, 1996

Ep. 269 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast

1996 was a great year for the Jimmy Page/Robert Plant partnership. After their tremendously successful 1995 Unledded tour, they both loosened and tightened up, and headed South (of the Equator) with a smaller coterie of musicians. They played Central and South America, Japan, and finally, Australia.

This recording is from their February 24, 1996 in Sydney. The recording is fantastic as is the performance. I play a super chill yet elegant Since I’ve Been Loving You (Robert hit’s that note perfectly), a raucous and percussively gorgeous Four Sticks, and we finish off the night with a brilliant and lively In The Evening, before we all drop from exhaustion. Enjoy

Led Zeppelin LA Forum March 27 1975 Millard Master

Ep. 268 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast

This is an incredible recording from Saint Mike Millard on his blessed Nakamichi, of Led Zeppelin at the LA Forum on March 27, 1975. This is one of the legendary marathon shows, running more than 3 hours, in gorgeous full stereo. This is a fresh transfer made by JEMS and lightly mastered by DADGAD. It’s a keeper for sure.

I play a funky Over The Hills and Far Away and glorious improvisational No Quarter for us, as a taster for the full show, which is available below. Jonesy and Bonzo are perfectly synced in this amazing recording. You’ll dig it.
