A Supposedly High Quality Recording Of A Led Zeppelin Concert From Japan In 1972 Hit The Web

Led Zeppelin’s website just posted a YouTube ‘video’ of an audience recording of one of their Japanese concerts from 1972. They claim its a high quality recording from the audience, but when you listen to it you realize its not. To me this sounds like an audience member with a handheld Sears tape recorder or something. Listen for yourself:

The concert setlist is: Rock and Roll, Black Dog, Misty Mountain Hop, Since I’ve Been Loving You, The Song Remains the Same, Rain Song, Dazed and Confused, Stairway to Heaven, Over the Hills and Far Away, Whole Lotta Love (medley incl. Everybody Needs Someone To Love, Let That Boy Boogie, That’s Alright Mama, Jump the Broomstick, Going Down Slow), Immigrant Song.

Something I found really cool, however, is that the promoter for this concert actually put together a multi-page program, similar to a program for a play or musical, that has early pics of the band and bios of each member. You can see that here although most of it is in Japanese.

Lots of ‘archival’ footage of the band is coming to light these days now that you can digitize and preserve artifacts like this. Here’s 8mm film of the band’s Landover, MD concert from 1975. Same audio quality, and video is poor, but its live Led Zeppelin.
