The Heart of Markness Classic Rock Podcast – April 19, 1975
We listen to a wonderful show from the Beacon Theater in NYC, from April 19, 1975 by Little Feat, touring in support of The Last Record Album. The sound is excellent, the performance is excellent, as are the songs, and the band. It’s a good one.
Mike Millard Master – June 23, 1976 : The Heart of Markness Classic Rock Podcast
This is the brilliant Millard Master recording of Paul McCartney and Wings, at the LA Forum on June 3, 1976. This is the tour from which Wings Across America was recorded. Wings and Beatles tunes abound! I’ve another Millard McCartney show from 1989 that may interest you as well.
Ep. 84 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast – March 19, 1975
We listen to Grame’s remaster of Led Zeppelin in Vancouver, BC on March 19, 1975. The PNW leg of the ’75 tour is my favorite, and this is a fun show. Great recording, great energy. Happy Thanksgiving, enjoy!
We listen to a Mike Millard master recording of Yes at the Hollywood Bowl, June 21, 1975. This is their Relayer tour and Patrick Moraz has replaced Rick Wakeman on keyboards. It has a very jazz fusion vibe and as usual the Millard recording is spectacular. A great show.
Episode 83 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
We listen to November 7, 1969 San Francisco at the Winterland. Another great night as we hear a blistering Babe I’m Gonna Leave, a joyous What Is What Should Never Be, and boisterous Dazed and Confused. Great show.
We listen to tracks from Cream’s farewell tour, Oct. 25, 1968 in San Jose, California. It’s an excellent audience recording from reel to reel and we hear White Room, Sunshine of Your Love, and Crossroads. Amazing band.
December 4, 1984 – Newly Released Master Audience Recording
This is a brand new master recording from an early show from The Firm, on Dec. 4, 1984 in Ludwigshafen, Germany. The band is on fire and there is some brilliant playing from Jimmy Page in particular. A great show.
Peter Gabriel did a soft open of his tour supporting his third (Melt) solo album on June 17, 1980, in Santa Ana, Cali. and Mike Millard was there for another legendary recording. A great setlist and performance from the former Genesis singer.
Episode 82 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast – 11/6/69 San Francisco
November 6, 1969 was Led Zeppelin’s penultimate gig at the legendary Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. The next time they tour the States they’ll be selling out arenas. They open with a few bars of Good Times Bad Times and it’s warp speed until the encores. A great show.
This is a rare show featuring Robert Fleischman as lead singer, Journey played Long Beach, CA on August 14, 1977, opening for ELP. This is a Journey right on the cusp of the enormous fame that came from swapping Gregg Rolie and Robert Fleischman for Steve Perry and Jonathan Cain. This is a great hard rocking Beatlesy Progfest with insanely good sound from being a Mike Millard master release from JEMS. Enjoy.
