Ep. 88 – March 21, 1970 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
This is a great recording from March 21, 1970, the show opener of Led Zeppelin’s 5th American tour, in Vancouver BC. We hear an embryonic Since I’ve Been Loving You (won’t be released for 7 more months)Heartbreaker, Thank You and Communication Breakdown. Merry Christmas one and all.
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!
Episode 83 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
We listen to November 7, 1969 San Francisco at the Winterland. Another great night as we hear a blistering Babe I’m Gonna Leave, a joyous What Is What Should Never Be, and boisterous Dazed and Confused. Great show.
Episode 82 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast – 11/6/69 San Francisco
November 6, 1969 was Led Zeppelin’s penultimate gig at the legendary Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. The next time they tour the States they’ll be selling out arenas. They open with a few bars of Good Times Bad Times and it’s warp speed until the encores. A great show.
New Source, Complete Show Including Full Dancing Days
This is from the newly discovered and released complete 7/13/73 recording of Led Zeppelin in Detroit. Previously only a bit of the show was available on soundboard, but this is a VG audience recording of the entire show, including a complete Dancing Days. A great treasure from Dogs of Doom.
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.
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.
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.
Led Zeppelin: LA Forum June 21, 1977 Mike Millard Master
Here it is! The master recording of the legendary Listen to this Eddie show at the LA Forum 6/21/77, recorded by Mike Millard. This is the first of five nights Led Zeppelin played the Forum on their 1977 tour. We hear the master recording for the first time. Everything is a little bit clearer, crisper, closer. Close your eyes and it’s like you’re there.
Ep. 74 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
This show was taken from an FM broadcast from New Orleans October 1, 1998, and it smokes! Jimmy Page is on fire for the entire 1998 tour, but he gets better as the tour progresses, and this night is amazing. A great How Many More Times is played, with a bow solo, and even a bit of I Can’t Quit You. Great great performance.
