The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast Episode 71
Two Jimmy Page era Yardbirds shows were recently released, and we give a listen to songs from both of them July 1967 at the Fillmore West and May 29, 1968 in Concord, California (just a few months before Led Zeppelin’s birth). We hear Jimmy leading us all toward Led Zeppelin, his vision of what music should be. It’s a bit chaotic but a good listen.
A Mike Millard 1st on The Heart of Markness Podcast
This is a marvelous acoustic solo show by Neil Young on August 18, 1989 in Costa Mesa, California. It was captured by Mile Millard and release by JEMS (who are doing God’s work).

This podcast is about Sept. 23, 1971 which is the date of Led Zeppelin’s first performance in Japan, or Asia for that matter. It’s an amazing show with a spirited Led Zeppelin at the top of their game. This Led Zeppelin podcast is delighted to share it with you.
Patrice Oneal was one of the best comedic minds of the last 30 years. He often appeared on Opie and Anthony, with his strident wisdom regarding the power dynamic in relationships. I’ve posted him before if you recall.
Bloomington, MN Jan. 18, 1975 The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
The new soundboard fragment has been liberated by the Dogs of Doom and propogated by yours truly. There are only 4 songs, which seems to be the fashion of the bootleg market lately, and Wanton Song is cut after about a minute, but it sounds incredible. It’s worth hearing for Kashmir alone (still in its infancy as a live number). Jonesy is strong in this very professional sounding, balanced recording. You’re going to love it.
A Mike Millard Recording on The Heart of Markness Podcast
On May 25, 1980 Genesis, touring in support of Duke, played an intimate gig for 500 fans, at West Hollywood’s iconic Roxy. Mike Millard was there, front and center, with his legendary recording gear. There’s ambiguity as to whether this is a master recording, or taken from a 1st gen, but in any case the sound is phenomenal, as is the performance.
This tour, in support of Flowers In The Dirt, is Paul McCartney’s first tour since 1979’s Wings UK tour, and his first world tour since 1976. People were ready and he brought it. He played 31 songs (lots of Beatles songs) in his marathon set at the LA Forum, and Mike Millard was there to capture it.
We listen to the opening night (Sept 23, 1971) of Led Zeppelin’s first Japanese Tour, and it’s brilliant. They’re eager to show the audience why they’re the best band ever, and they succeed. We listen to a pristine Since I’ve Been Loving You, and a rapturous Whole Lotta Love with complete performances of Good Times, Bad Times, How Many More Times, You Shook Me, as well as tons of rock songs in the medley. It’s arguably the best Whole Lotta Love ever.
