Ep. 234 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
We hear a great recording of Robert Plant with Saving Grace in Vicenza, Italy from Sept 6, 2023. Robert plays four Zep songs in this show and we heart them all. I play The Cuckoo (not Zep), Friends, Four Sticks, The Rain Song (beautiful!), and Gallows Pole. This is an intimate and lovely performance. Enjoy.
The Heart of Markness Classic Rock Podcast – Bonus Episode
We hear a great Mike Millard recording of Bob Dylan on July 31, 1988 at the beginning of his Neverending Tour. This is the shirtless vest/GE Smith era, and the setlist is heavy with hits. I play Absolutely Sweet Marie, Simple Twist of Fate, and To Ramona.
Ep. 232 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
This is Led Zeppelin at their instrumental peak. March 24, 1973 Offenburg, Germany. This is the 2 source Eddie Edwards release and it is incredible. Like the Japan 1971 tour the Europe 1973 tour is a must hear for all Zep, or even classic rock, fans. We hear SIBLY and Dazed in the podcast.
Ep. 231 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
A second source for Led Zeppelin Vancouver BC Aug 19, 1971 has been found, and it contains the first three songs of the show, which are missing from the existing source. Hear Immigrant Song, Heartbreaker, and Since I’ve Been Loving You from the brand new 2 Source Merge released hours ago. This is great!
Ep. 229 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
We hear a few from Feb. 1, 1969 (the Late Show) at the Fillmore East, NYC. Led Zeppelin is winding up their first tour and they’re winning hearts and minds with their energy and virtuosity. I play Train>I Can’t Quit You and How Many More Times. Amazing band.
Ep. 228 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
We hear a remaster of Led Zeppelin’s first concert in two years, July 23, 1979 in Copenhagen, DK. The sound is stellar as is the performance. Everyone involved was eager to prove that there was still gas in the tank. A unique peek at late era Zep playing a small 1000ish capacity venue a week before playing Knebworth in front of hundreds of thousands.
The Heart of Markness Classic Rock Podcast – June 5, 1984 Nottingham UK
This is a great professional recording of boogie woogie band Rocket 88 playing live on June 5, 1984 in Nottingham as a benefit for the recently late Alexis Korner (father of British blues and member of Rocket 88). This show features Charlie Watts, Ian Stewart, Jack Bruce, Jimmy Page, Paul Jones, Ruby Turner and many more. Super fun show with greatly improved sound.
As this is at least a semi-legit release I can’t share this with you, but if you want to buy the complete 2 CD set, here is the link for Amazon. https://amzn.to/3YEhsNH
Ep. 227 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast
By request we hear Led Zeppelin from March 14, 1975 in San Diego, taped in excellent stereo by Mike Millard. I play fun, fiery versions of Trampled Underfoot, In My Time of Dying, and Sick Again. Good stuff, folks.
