Ep. 240 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
John Paul Jones at the West Hollywood House of Blues Oct 19, 1999. Unbelievable talent. Unbelievable show. on the Zooma Tour. Powerful performance by Jonesy and his arsenal of custom bass instruments. We hear Zooma, Grind, and Smile of Your Shadow. Just astounding the talent of this man.
EP. 132 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
Jonesy! We listen to Nov. 1, 1999 at the Joint in Las Vegas on the Zooma tour. This is a soundboard recording and both the sound quality and performance are excellent. We hear No Quarter, Nosumi Blues, and Levee. Amazing musician. You can download the whole concert here: https://mega.nz/folder/vwETzSya#2aMf5M7kLakYP1R036dNNw
It is finished. A nice 22 minute episode wherein I discuss, then play, two unreleased live Led Zeppelin tracks left off of their live album, How The West Was Won. It’s an audience recording of Louie Louie, Everyday People, and Thank You. Amazingly powerful performances
which also highlight the level of connection Zeppelin had with their audiences. This recording is from June 25th, 1972. I said Long Beach on the podcast, but it was the LA Forum. I just said Long Beach to give a few perfectionists a paroxysm of rage. We are all of us monsters in one way or another.
These 2 unreleased live Led Zeppelin tracks are EXCELLENT. Led Zeppelin in 1972 was at the peak of their powers. Robert Plant’s voice hadn’t gone, and Jimmy Page’s hands were fluid and eloquent. Jonesy still had the organ (pre-mellotron) and all was well. Their cover versions were often legendary.
