Jimmy and Robert dealing with the Florida heat.

This is one of the very few soundboards we have of Led Zeppelin in 1971, and it’s a beauty. This show, from Aug 31, 1971 is a top ten on many fans’ lists, with good reason.

Led Zeppelin:Copenhagen ’71

Ep. 34 – The Heart of Markness Podcast

Led Zeppelin – Copenhagen May 3, 1971

Episode 34 is up! Led Zeppelin in Copenhagen, May 3, 1971. This is an amazing show, in the Top 10 for sure, if just for the only performances (I think) of Four Sticks and Gallows Pole EVER. I also play Stairway because it’s a performance from before the release of Zep 4, and no one in the audience had heard that song before. Not the best recording, alas, but one of Zeppelin’s best shows. Wild and free. Enjoy.

If you would like this whole concert. You can download the full May 3, 1971 Led Zeppelin show, from Copenhagen, Denmark, right here. https://mega.nz/#F!6gkFTCAQ!6HSXF1rdjxf26P4GWaZB0g

Page/Plant Portland OR 1995

Ep. 33 – The Heart of Markness Podcast

I was at this show. This is the first leg of the Page/Plant reunion tour (Unledded), and it was good. It got better and tighter as the tour progressed, but it was awesome to see Jimmy and Robert together again.

I recently found an almost excellent audience recording of this show (Portland OR, May 23, 1995) which I share with you. Here’s the complete show. Thank you for listening.

Robert Plant – Boston 1993

Ep. 32 – The Heart of Markness Podcast

I was at this show. It was amazing. November 20, 1993, Orpheum Theater, Boston. Robert was just awesome. This show was in support of my favorite album of his, Fate of Nations.

Jimmy Page was at this concert, too. He was seated near the soundboard. My friend said he’d seen him and thought he was full of shit. Whoops. Jimmy and Robert discussed the possibility of reuniting, after this show. The genesis of Page/Plant occurred hours after this recording. Cool beans.

Here is the link to the complete show. It’s a very good to excellent audience recording. Recorded on a DAT so everything is clear. Enjoy. Thanks for listening.

Led Zeppelin Dallas Pop 69

Ep. 31 – Heart of Markness Podcast

Cover Art for Dallas Pop

I’m too good to you people. For Thanksgiving I give you the entire set played by Led Zeppelin, at the Dallas International Pop Festival (Aug. 31, 1969). It’s in excellent soundboard stereo. It’s a matrix which means they mix in some of the audience source to fill missing bits, and to add some ambience and atmosphere to the dry soundboard recording. They did a great job.

This show is awesome. It’s short (an hour) because they had to catch a plane home. This is the last show in their summer tour. They were stars. When they returned a few months later, they were superstars. They started 1969 as nobodies. Amazing.

Here’s a link to the whole show including artwork, etc. Thank you for listening.
