Ep. 98 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast: 7/25/69 1st Gen
We listen to a new 1st gen reel transfer of July 25, 1969, of Led Zeppelin in West Allis Wisconsin, for the Midwest Rock Festival. This is a great audience recording from up close. Wonderful sound and a nice performance. Train, Dazed, and HMMT are played.
Ep. 95 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast – 7/5/69
This is a BRAND NEW Led Zeppelin show that had been previously unheard. July 5, 1969 at the Atlanta Pop Festival. What a great recording (audience) of a brilliantly high powered Led Zeppelin screaming through an amazing set. Thanks to the Dogs of Doom for liberating this great show.
Ep. 94 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast.
This is the legendary Jan. 26, 1969 Boston Tea Party gig that allegedly lasted 4 hours. We only have a portion of that night taped, but by god it’s one of the best ever. It may be Jimmy’s best show. Unreal power, mystery, fun, and rock and roll. Legendary 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.
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.
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.
I’m too good to you people. For Thanksgiving I give you the entire set played by Led Zeppelin, at the Dallas International Pop Festival (Aug. 31, 1969). It’s in excellent soundboard stereo. It’s a matrix which means they mix in some of the audience source to fill missing bits, and to add some ambience and atmosphere to the dry soundboard recording. They did a great job.
This show is awesome. It’s short (an hour) because they had to catch a plane home. This is the last show in their summer tour. They were stars. When they returned a few months later, they were superstars. They started 1969 as nobodies. Amazing.
Here’s a link to the whole show including artwork, etc. Thank you for listening.
