Ep. 79 – August 4 1979 The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
I tackle the legendary Aug 4, 1979 outdoor concert by Led Zeppelin at Knebworth. This is considered by many to be the last great Zep show and it is a doozy. I use a great matrix recording of this show that you’ll enjoy.
The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast – April 26, 1969
This is one of the best early Led Zeppelin shows around. April 26, 1969 at Bill Graham’s Winterland is a must have show, if only because it’s (probably) the first ever performance of Whole Lotta Love! Every single song in this set is golden. You can’t miss it.
Holmdel NJ June 30, 2000 – Ep. 75 The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
This show is incredible. June 30, 2000 in Holmdel, NJ, Jimmy Page and The Black Crowes blow the roof off the place. This is some of Jimmy’s best playing in decades. The Black Crowes are a perfect band for him and they synergize incredibly well. We hear Hots On For Nowhere (!), Your Time Is Gonna Come, Out On The Tiles, and AN INCREDIBLE LEMON SONG. Jimmy will blow you away.
October 7, 1988 Mike Millard 1st Gen – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
A great Mike Millard recording of Jimmy Page’s Outrider tour at the LA Forum, October 7, 1988. Fantastic sound on Jimmy’s best post Zep tour. His playing is amazing, the setlist is mix of Zeppelin, The Firm, Death Wish 2, and Outrider stuff. A great one.
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.
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.
This is the evening show at Toronto’s Rockpile on August 18, 1969. Led Zeppelin is barreling through their North American Summer 1969 tour like a Mongol horde, taking no prisoners and conquering all they encounter.
By special request from a long time listener, and Patron, this episode features Led Zeppelin’s first of six nights at Madison Square Garden, NYC. June 7, 1977 is what Mimo wanted to hear and I can see why. It’s a powerhouse show and we hear it from a bass heavy (in a good way) soundboard recording.
