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.

Led Zeppelin – Belfast 1971

Ep. 266 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast

This show is a monster. Not only is it a 1971 show, making it great by default, it is also the first show with songs from Zep 4 (still 8 months from release), and it’s also one of Robert Plant’s strongest shows ever. So, it’s a winner.

I featured this show on Episode 127 where I played all the debut performances of Stairway, Rock and Roll, and Going to Calafornia. This time I’m playing the opening of the show with an incendiary Immigrant Song–>Heartbreaker, and the finale with a viking raid of a performance of Bring It on Home. Robert’s harmonica work is brilliant on top of everything.

Led Zeppelin – Sept. 24 1971 Tokyo

Ep. 235 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast

We hear an insane Whole Lotta Love from Sept 24 1971 Tokyo, as Led Zeppelin is on their first tour of Japan. The song is 30 minutes of Rave On, You Time Is Gonna Come, I’m A Man, Hello Mary Lou, How Many More Times, and more… all within Whole Lotta Love. It’s ridiculously good. Also play a groovy Communcation Breakdown. Also insane.

Led Zeppelin – Hiroshima 9/27/71

Ep. 216 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast

We hear 4 songs from Led Zeppelin in Hiroshima on Sept. 27, 1971 on their first Japanese Tour. Great stuff on this tour and this show. I play Heartbreaker, Since I’ve Been Loving You, a 20 minute Whole Lotta Love w/ myriad medleys, and Communication Breakdown. Awesome and joyous.

Led Zeppelin Osaka 1971 North Bridge Remaster

Ep. 192 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast

We revisit Led Zeppelin’s 9/28/71 Osaka legendary show with a glorious stereo remaster by North Bridge. Wide stereo soundstage and impressive instrument separation make this star shine even brighter. Amazing. It sounds even better than the awesome EVSD release.

You can download this (almost complete. No Immigrant Song and only the last half of Heartbreaker) right here: https://mega.nz/file/DgsiCCDQ#LX0kNfd2e9qmmBamIvKd13cDv_00I5VdxVawSzw-wHk

Led Zeppelin LA Forum 1971 New Source

Ep. 177 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast 8/21/71

We hear a NEW SOURCE for 8/21/71 and it sounds way better. Only the first 4 songs were taped before getting caught, but we hear ’em. Immigrant Song, Heartbreaker, SIBLY, & Black Dog all better than before. Super cool.

Led Zeppelin Rochester 1971 Improved Source

Ep. 160 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast

We listen to an improved source for 9/11/71 which is when Led Zeppelin played Rochester, NY. This is a great show from a time when the band was a force of nature. We hear Whole Lotta Love (with killer SLIDE solo in the medleys) and Thank You with organ solo. You’ll love this.

Led Zeppelin – Berkley 1971 Pt 1

Ep. 89 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast – 9/14/71

We listen to an excellent stereo vinyl rip of 9/14/71 in Berkley Cali. Insane performances of SIBLY and Dazed, as well as the mellow acoustic That’s The Way and Going to California. A great one, folks. I know I’ve covered this show before, but not like this.
