Bloomington, MN Jan. 18, 1975 The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
The new soundboard fragment has been liberated by the Dogs of Doom and propogated by yours truly. There are only 4 songs, which seems to be the fashion of the bootleg market lately, and Wanton Song is cut after about a minute, but it sounds incredible. It’s worth hearing for Kashmir alone (still in its infancy as a live number). Jonesy is strong in this very professional sounding, balanced recording. You’re going to love it.
A Mike Millard Recording on The Heart of Markness Podcast
On May 25, 1980 Genesis, touring in support of Duke, played an intimate gig for 500 fans, at West Hollywood’s iconic Roxy. Mike Millard was there, front and center, with his legendary recording gear. There’s ambiguity as to whether this is a master recording, or taken from a 1st gen, but in any case the sound is phenomenal, as is the performance.
This tour, in support of Flowers In The Dirt, is Paul McCartney’s first tour since 1979’s Wings UK tour, and his first world tour since 1976. People were ready and he brought it. He played 31 songs (lots of Beatles songs) in his marathon set at the LA Forum, and Mike Millard was there to capture it.
Achtung Baby was U2’s high water mark and what an album it was! JEMS has released another Mike Millard master recording, and it’s April 12, 1992 at the Los Angeles Sports Arena. It’s a great show from a great band promoting a great album. You can’t go wrong.
This is an excellent audience recording of Lou Reed touring in support of his New York album (one of the best albums of his career, and of the 80’s in general), at the Olympia Theater in Paris, June 23, 1989. He plays New York almost in its entirety, and the plays a bunch of songs from his whole career. It’s great.
This is a very mellow, Grateful Dead/Allman Brothers-esque jam From February 8. 1970 at the Boston Tea Party. Jim Gordon from Derek and the Dominos plays drums. The connection between Peter Green (rest in peace) and Eric Clapton borders on telepathic. It’s uncanny.
We get another Mike Millard master from JEMS, and it’s the Rolling Stones, October 22, 1989 in Los Angeles. A great capture of the reunited Rolling Stones on their Steel Wheels tour. I play 2000 Light Years from Home, Gimme Shelter, Miss You, and Tumbling Dice.
