We listen to a Mike Millard master recording of Yes at the Hollywood Bowl, June 21, 1975. This is their Relayer tour and Patrick Moraz has replaced Rick Wakeman on keyboards. It has a very jazz fusion vibe and as usual the Millard recording is spectacular. A great show.
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.
We listen to tracks from Cream’s farewell tour, Oct. 25, 1968 in San Jose, California. It’s an excellent audience recording from reel to reel and we hear White Room, Sunshine of Your Love, and Crossroads. Amazing band.
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.
A Mike Millard 1st Gen Recording – The Heart of Markness Classic Rock Podcast
A first gen Mike Millard record of Bruce Springsteen at the LA Sports Arena on August 23, 1981 has been released, and we’re going to give it a listen. This is a beautifully recorded high energy Bruce show from The River tour. Good stuff.
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.
I talk about the 1972/73 UK Tour of Led Zeppelin, Robert’s voice issues, Zep’s final UK tour, and I play some of an unreleased multitrack recording of the Jan 22 Southampton show, and I also bitch about my grumpy health woes. I play How Many More Times/Communication Breakdown and Thank You.
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.
September 8th, 1989 – Mike Millard First Gen Recording
I play tracks from an excellent recording of Bob Dylan on 9/8/89 in Costa Mesa, California. This is another beautiful Mike Millard First Generation recording, and it’s a great show. Dylan plays almost all his songs from Highway 61 and Blonde on Blonde era, and their awesome.
