October 29,1988 Heart of Markness
I was at this show and it’s insanely good. Jimmy brings the magick from Zeppelin, and the audience reacts like it’s 1970. 10/29/88 Worcester Centrum.

Signals Tour Wembley Arena May 21, 1983
Bonus Quarantine Episode – Rush London 1983 I had a request to do a Rush show from the Signals Tour. I decided on May 21, 1983 The band is playing insanely well, and the crowd is enthusiastic. If you love Rush you will love this.

Ep. 56 of The Heart of Markness
This is one of the best live recordings out there. Mike Millard’s Led Zeppelin 3/11/75 is just superb. The performances are great and the audience recording sounds professional. Here the boys at their indulgent best. Dazed and Confused is played as well as the funky Whole Lotta Love/Crunge, a primal Kashmir, and a sublime Over The Hills And Far Away. Great stuff.

Sept. 19, 1970 – Evening Show
On Sept 19, 1970 Led Zeppelin played two shows at Madison Square Garden, in New York City. It was reported in the press that each member of the band earned $30,000 for less than six hours work. Good for them. They earned it because this show contains one of the hottest hours of live music I’ve ever heard.

Bonus Quarantine Episode
We listen to a soundboard recording of the late show of the Rolling Stones, 7/21/72 in Philadelphia. This is the legendary STP tour supporting Exile on Main Street, and it’s the Stones at their peak. Absolutely brilliant performances of Love in Vain, All Down The Line, Midnight Rambler, and Uptight/Satisfaction. Beautiful. Enjoy. Exile on Main Street may be my favorite album of all time. It’s definitely my favorite Stones album. I hope this helps get rid of the Corona Blues.

July 24, 1979 – Episode 54 Heart of Markness
We revisit Led Zeppelin’s July 24, 1979 show in Copenhagen, DK, which we discussed in my very first episode. I play Celebration Day, Over The Hills, Since I’ve Been Loving You, and the retooled version of Whole Lotta Love. This is an intimate warm up gig for the Knebworth shows, and it’s an incredible performance.

Ok, this one went off the rails. Neil Young with Booker T and the MG’s, July 3, 1993, Torhout, Belgium. Great audience/soundboard matrix recording. It gets silly. Neil and the band have a hard time with Helpless, and have to start over, and I just go berserk get all Dan Brown conspiracy crazy and decide all Neil’s songs have darker meaning. I laughed my ass off. I hope you do too. If nothing else the music is amazing. Booker T and the MG’s are solid as a rock behind Neil, and add some depth to the groove. Enjoy, friends.

Mike Millard Master Recording
This is an excellent recording of Stevie Nicks on her 12 date Bella Donna tour. She’s in Los Angeles, at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre on December 12, 1981. It’s great. She’s amazing as is her backing band.
