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!
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.

Sept 3, 1971 Madison Square Garden – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
Led Zeppelin played New York City on Sept. 3, 1971 and the crowd was wild! So wild they stormed the stage and it collapsed. This is a tape in which the crowd at times is louder than the band, but the show itself is amazing. This is a vastly underrated Zep show. Jimmy’s playing has an edge I’d not heard before.

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.
