Page/Plant – Bizarre Festival Aug. 23, 1998

Ep. 265 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast

On August 23, 1998 Jimmy Page and Robert Plant played on a “wet, miserable field” in the rain at the Bizzare Festival, in Cologne/Koln Germany. They were touring in support of Walking Into Clarksdale, which was produced/engineered by the late Steve Albini (RIP).

This is a fantastic, professionally broadcast, performance and all systems are go with Jimmy on fire,and Robert’s voice strong and in control. It’s brilliant. I play two songs off Clarksdale and then a very cool performance of Spoonful into a frenetic Whole Lotta Love.

I wrap it all up with a clip of Steve Albini talking about working with Jimmy and Robert, in an insightful, if irreverent, interview. Good stuff.
