Led Zeppelin – Seattle 1973 Pt 1+2

Ep. 65 of The Heart of Markness Podcast

This a wonderful show. July 17, 1973 in Seattle, Washington, Led Zeppelin blazes through their 9th North American Tour. I use two fantastic matrix sources, ZepHead315’s and Dario Romero’s remaster.

Led Zeppelin Toronto 1969

August 18, 1969 Evening Show

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.

Listen To This Mimo!

Led Zeppelin June 7th, 1977 MSG

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.

Led Zeppelin Long Beach ’75

Ep. 56 of The Heart of Markness

This is one of the best live recordings out there. Mike Millard’s Led Zeppelin 3/11/75 is just superb. The performances are great and the audience recording sounds professional. Here the boys at their indulgent best. Dazed and Confused is played as well as the funky Whole Lotta Love/Crunge, a primal Kashmir, and a sublime Over The Hills And Far Away. Great stuff.

Led Zeppelin: NYC 1970

Sept. 19, 1970 – Evening Show

One of the best shows ever.

On Sept 19, 1970 Led Zeppelin played two shows at Madison Square Garden, in New York City. It was reported in the press that each member of the band earned $30,000 for less than six hours work. Good for them. They earned it because this show contains one of the hottest hours of live music I’ve ever heard.

Led Zeppelin Copenhagen ’79

July 24, 1979 – Episode 54 Heart of Markness

The Press Were Not Kind

We revisit Led Zeppelin’s July 24, 1979 show in Copenhagen, DK, which we discussed in my very first episode. I play Celebration Day, Over The Hills, Since I’ve Been Loving You, and the retooled version of Whole Lotta Love. This is an intimate warm up gig for the Knebworth shows, and it’s an incredible performance.

You can listen to this entire show, including (imo) THE BEST performance of Ten Years Gone, for free right here: https://mega.nz/folder/OpkBHRQQ#3y5xP_bIkjoFrE3I1KdP-g

Jimmy Page – Steve Winwood

Ep. 52 – The Princes Trust Rock Gala 1983

This is good. It’s not Led Zeppelin so it’s ok if you’re not interested, but this show (Sept 21, 1983) has some solid playing by a very nervous Jimmy Page. This is the night after the ARMS Concert and it’s the same show, but this night Charles and Diana were there for the Prince’s Trust Rock Gala… so that’s what it was called. This is Jimmy’s return to public performing after the loss of Zep, and Steve Winwood sang for him (Paul Rodgers would fill in when the tour reached the USA). He played 3 songs from Death Wish 2 and Stairway. He plays really well, especially given how shaky he was the night before, although Prelude is better on the 20th (imo). I like it. I hope you do too.

Led Zeppelin – June 3, 1973

Ep. 49 – The Heart of Markness Podcast

Led Zeppelin June 3, 1973 LA Forum

This is one of the best, if not THE best, show from Led Zeppelin’s 1973 US Tour. Zep always deliver in Los Angeles and this is no exception. You can download the entire show (the sound isn’t the best) right here: https://mega.nz/folder/u5VjDKKL#a5Tn0W8ATuYUIhFzNVXyJQ
