4,7,10: WW1 Superstar Concert Series #98-23 (pre-FM CD)
2: WW1 BBC Classic Tracks #93-01 (pre-FM CD)
6: London Wavelength BBC Rock Hour #343 (pre-FM LP)
9: BBC4 TV broadcast 10Nov06

This release is the result of a team work and would not have been possible without the help and generosity of PaulHarald, who provided most of the pre-FM sources for this project. So thanks again, PaulHarald, for your help and patience!

This concert from Queen Mary College was taped by the BBC on November 10, 1977, and broadcast various times, in both radio and TV formats. Several FM recordings surfaced, but usually in an incomplete form and very often mixed with tracks from another concert at London's Hammersmith Odeon, recorded on March 9, 1975.

Several transcription CDs were produced for radio stations by Westwood One during the 1990s, with superb stereo pre-FM quality. The main problems of these radio CDs are that none of them featured the complete 1977 BBC recording, and that tracks from the Hammersmith 1975 show were included too, creating big confusion (DJs talking on the Westwood One CDs usually announce all songs as being from the Queen Mary
College concert, while about half of them are actually from Hammersmith).

The purpose of this release was to compile all the known Queen Mary College recordings in order to have the most complete version of the concert, with the best possible sound quality.

Almost all the tracks are directly taken from the Westwood One pre-FM CDs, with some exceptions:

- Poor Boy was not available in CD format, so the version presented here was taken from a BBC transcription LP ("Rock Hour #343"). There was also the possibility to take it from the TV broadcast versions, but all TV broadcasts of that concert have a mono mix. So the stereo version from the BBC LP was preferred.

- On CD, the reprise at the end of Lady was edited out, so the BBC Rock Hour LP was used for this last part of the song.

- Hide In Your Shell only surfaced on 10Nov06, when BBC4 TV did a special 30 minute rebroadcast of the concert, with this track as a nice surprice at the end (never broadcast previously!).

- All the pre-FM versions of Bloody Well Right (on CD and LP) have 2 edits: one at the end of the keyboard intro, and another during the ending instrumental section with saxophone solo. Therefore, the version presented here comes mainly from CD, with 2 patches taken from the (complete but mono) version on the TV broadcast.

As a companion to this CD, This Place Records recommend the DVD version (TPR DVD 003) with superb video and, for the very first time, stereo sound!

Incomplete show, complete broadcast, with interviews intercut between the live segments. Commonly misdated and mislocated as October 11, 2001, in Niagara Falls, NY. From late September to mid October, the band cancelled 10 previously scheduled shows due to the September 11th terrorist attacks, which would prove the October 11th date as invalid, as the band was originally scheduled to open for Aerosmith in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on this date. Daxx Nielsen temporarily fills in for Bun E. Carlos, as he was recovering from back surgery at the time.

Started off as a good day when the UPS guy delivered my new microphones just in time to get everything ready to go to the show. Was a little worried as I did not have a lot of time to test out the mics before I had to leave for the show. The show was not sold out and I had 4 empty seats to my left so I eventually moved to those seats and was able to comfortably monitor the levels and get them adjusted. I think the recording came out really good. I also got some Hyper Card elements too. I will try them sometime soon but for now I am happy with the mics.

The show itself was great. Steve Howe was the most impressive of the group, he never fails to impress me. I thought Jon Davison did an admirable job as well. When I first heard about this tour I thought .... "Why Going For The One?" but I have to say I have a much deeper apreciation for that album now. I always liked Wonderous Stories, but had not paid real close attention to the rest of the album. My mistake... it is realy much better than I remembered it to be. There was an intermission between Close to the Edge and Going for the One. I cut out that intermission and spliced the very begining of the Going For The One set to the end of Siberian Khatru. You can hear the cut for that split second as they don't match perfectly but it is audience noise so you have all the music intact.

- The venue and date are according to information I received from the radio station. The broadcast date was 1984-03-11 (11 March 1984).
- There’s a short scratching noise in track 6 at approx. 4:43 min.
- There is a short fade-out after track 7 (The Easy Blues), probably the taper edited some presenter’s comments there. (This is a good point to split the recording if you want to burn this to 2 disks.)
- This is another recording I originally received from Harald B., who seems to have captured many shows from Bavarian radio everybody else has missed! Thanks a lot!

The crowd was well behaved around us. The sound was excellent and the performance was very good this evening as the band appeared to be enjoying themselves. We really enjoyed this show and hope you do as well. Enjoy!

Original Source 1 notes:
This is a historic show for many reasons. The first is that this is the last gig of the 1971 tour, this date was a replacement date for the concert that was originally schedeuled on October 30th at the Music Hall in Cincinnati. A couple more reasons (and these are the good ones) are that this performance marks the last time the band ever performs 2 songs which had been staples of their setlist for quite some time, one song being The Embryo and the other one being Cymbaline. The Embryo contained here is the longest version to have ever been recorded, lasting about 26 minutes ... incredible!!! The band is quite hot this night too and therefore all the songs are performed very well in my opinion. This is the 1st recorder for this date and unfortunately it is not complete, missing some of Echoes and all of the encore, Blues. This is, however, the better sounding of the 2 recorders for this date and deserves a very nice EX rating. It's something special when you get all these goodies in one RoIO, please enjoy responsibly!

Original Source 2 notes:
The whole concert from the 2nd source! This is the source that is often used to complete Echoes and Blues. It comes from a 1st generation tape, reaching into the VG-/VG area for sound quality. Apart from a few drops at the begining of CWTAE and a cut during the Blues number, this is very decent, very listenable. It's 3 CDs although it could fit on 80 mins. The performance is sublime, as we all know it. It's always interesting to collect all available sources since you get a different feel for the show. I strongly recommend this one! 145 minutes of Pink Floyd at their best.

Over a 12-year, nine-album career from 1968-1980, Led Zeppelin was the most popular rock group in the world, ultimately selling more than 200 million albums worldwide.  They developed the blues-based power trio-plus-lead singer archetype in many directions including mystical English folk-rock, Middle Eastern-influenced exotica, quirky pop and every manner of heaviness. They also came to symbolize the Dionysian excesses of the rock lifestyle.

Their ubiquity on classic rock radio formats and the aforementioned excesses have led many to dismiss the band as overrated and symptomatic of the decline of rock ‘n’ roll in the '70s and if anything, the band’s musical greatness is still underappreciated, due to the previously mentioned resentments and the fact that the band had no greater cultural impact — they didn’t much stand for anything. Jimmy Page formed the band in 1968 with veteran session bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones, 19-year-old singer Robert Plant and Plant’s friend, drummer John Bonham.

Plant’s vocals reached levels of deranged ecstasy matched perhaps only by Little Richard on lyrics typically either oozing with sexuality or derived from Anglo-Saxon myth and/or the occult. Bonham (whose accidental death in 1980 broke up the band) pounded his drums relentlessly like a nimble elephant dancing through the house. Jones’s bass and strategic keyboards glued the disparate elements together. And Page, who did most of the writing and production, played some of the most fundamental and memorable guitar in rock history — from the heaviest crunch to the most delicate acoustic finger picking.

Radio Hauraki’s “Led Before Bed” a weekly series broadcast each Wednesday night from 10pm has featured DJ Mike Currie presenting live and rare material from Led Zeppelin provided by The Mysterious Benefactor, a local Zeppelin fan who has built up a formidable music collection over many years of collecting.

The Led Before Bed show broadcast on 11/05/2005 featured the only concert ever played in New Zealand by Led Zeppelin at Western Springs Stadium on February 25th 1972. The concert was recorded by an unknown member of the audience and has circulated amongst diehard fans for many years in one form or another. Many fans consider the band to be at their musical peak playing live around this period of the 70’s.

The Mysterious Benefactor took it upon himself to research the concert in depth which lead him to the NZ Herald archives at Auckland City Library to read issues from that week in February ’72. Copies of the original ad’s for the show are included along with the concert review from the Saturday 26th February issue.

The ad’s also showed that Radio Hauraki was the station at the time which promoted the show. The concert promoter was Australian Robert Raymond.  He was tracked down in America and provided an exclusive interview recalling many events and stories from this time which were a feature of the broadcast.  Also featured in another interview was the local record company rep who was given the task of looking after the band during their stay in the country.

Radio Hauraki’s listeners were asked over some weeks to contact the station if they had attended the concert and many of those who did can be heard reminiscing at times during the broadcast of their experiences of the concert on that day.

In the days following the broadcast Radio Hauraki DJ and Promotions Manger Mark Woods commented that in his 5 years with the station he had never received more calls or feed back for any other feature that had been played on the station. Clearly this one particular show had stuck a cord with the stations listeners and Mike Currie continues to receive calls about it to this day.

Radio Hauraki is a New Zealand radio network, specialising in AOR and classic rock. It was the first private commercial radio station of the modern broadcasting era in NZ and operated illegally to break the monopoly held by the government. Private commercial radio stations had operated from the earliest days of broadcasting, but the government began to close them down, the process accelerating after World War II. To break the state monopoly, Radio Hauraki was originally formed as a pirate station in the Hauraki Gulf in a famous and historic story that saw the loss of one life.  Radio Hauraki's head office and main studios are now located on the corner of Cook & Nelson Streets in Auckland City, along with the other seven stations of The Radio Network.

Newspaper Ad scans, a few concert photographs and a text reprint of the April 1972 Rolling Stone magazine review of the concert are also included.

Rolling Stone
April 27, 1972 

A Special Report: 
Fear & Led Zep in New Zealand 
AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Robert Raymond is an Australian, a qualified lawyer, sun-tanned, pleasant-mannered and a promoter who has taken up residence in Remuera, a very plush suburb of Auckland, New Zealand, and from there he has brought over Tom Paxton, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Mary Hopkin, Mungo Jerry, Elton John, Led Zeppelin and a few others I've probably forgotten -- all this in less than six months, to a country which is veritably Townsend’s Teenage Wasteland. Or was, up until less than six months ago.

Most of these acts would doubtless have made it over here anyway, the difference here being the rapidity in which they have arrived, but where the appearance of Elton John was an eye-brow raiser, the arrival of Zeppelin brought a near-catatonic reaction from the country's rock freaks, who descended on Auckland from as far away as Dunedin (the other end of the country: about 900 miles) for the open air concert February 25th. Three planes brought the equipment across the Tasman, and from what Raymond would say, it appeared that the whole thing would cost him around $40,000. Seats sold at $3.10 and $4.10 and somewhere between 20,000 and 25,000 filled the Western Springs Stadium (a couple of miles from Auckland city and usually used for stock cars and other related entertainment) -- so it seems the genial Raymond did OK. They don't pay lawyers that well over here, that's for sure. 

Zeppelin had come from Australia, and in keeping with a number of rock acts who've played there, they didn't have much of a time there. A harrowing raid on their motel in Perth had obviously left it's mark on a still-shaken Jimmy Page at the small party quickly arranged for them the night they arrived. You sensed they were going to play this one through on alcohol before getting back to Sanity. "Australia was really pretty s-----," said Page as his eyes wandered around the room -- the occasional groupie grooving to Sha Na Na ,the inevitable media people whom Raymond tactfully remembered to invite, and John Bonham filling the intermittent silences with amusing and loud imitations . . . a chick with "Merlene" knitted across her breasts, was arranging "interviews" (EMI's delightful press liaison girl Louise told me Merlene was "a strange person who read poetry in Wellington -- 500 miles away") and it was later dutifully reported that Merlene had scored two out of four. 

Our little group was heavily into the Raoul Duke thing -- those ROLLING STONE issues had just arrived in New Zealand -- as we laid our goodies out on the table (what's more, I'd just flown up from Dunedin to discover that AUCKLAND WERE NOT YET INTO NITROUS OXIDE, and so the gleaming blue 275-gallon cylinder took pride of place in the middle of the table. Something to sustain the stone later in the evening.) 
It was a good three hours before starting time when we set off for Western Springs (we began to peak prematurely as the Yugoslav taxi-driver quickly launched into an excited discussion on communes and people-who-live-on-beaches: "Have you seen them?" he roared at us as he snaked dangerously in and out of the lanes. Roger tipped him ten cents at the end and we ran off). Three hours wasn't in any way early and we got some of the remaining good seats on the hill overlooking the stage, perhaps 75 yards away. 

We were warmed up with the Allman Brothers' live double album. I don't know how many knew that Duane Allman was dead (I don't know how many knew Duane Allman actually) but the razor-sharp lead guitar came through the superb system with each note crystal clear. Then it was dark, 8 o'clock, and we knew it would be any minute . . .

There had been some publicity on how there would be live animals jumping through hoops, but all that had sort of been forgotten what with all the mind-food fighting for a hold in our heads. But suddenly there was a lion on stage: Plant. I mean we all read the rock magazines over here and the record companies sportingly release just about everything with half a reputation, but we didn't realize that Zeppelin were so loud -- specifically Plant doing the jungle intro to "Immigrant Song." And then Page hitting those chords...most of us had seen Townsend a couple of years before (just about the time the Who were breaking in America) and we'd always thought that  was the way to play chords. But Page has moved along with the times -- and weren't we lucky to see him. On the other side of the world. Wow. 

I'll skip the way they put the concert together -- it was exactly the way we expected they'd fill three hours and doubtless exactly the way 
they'd done it many times before. Suffice to say they played excellently, relative to their records and relative to reviews on how they'd played in the past. 
It was really quite a significant evening for New Zealand and for New Zealand rock. On record there are a few bands that still have it over Led Zeppelin for my taste, but working simply on what I have to work on, I can't really see there being much better live rock around -- possibly because Zeppelin came here with a definite mystery thing where say the Stones have been exposed both live and on record live: Zeppelin haven't done anything live and they refuse to be filmed (Two detectives accompanied the NZBC film crew around Western Springs to ensure the cameras would never swing round onto the stage). 
Bob Raymond has a lot more goodies planned, and he's moving into records too (a group called Ticket, who have stunned New Zealand by getting their debut album accepted by Ahmet Etregun for release in America on Atlantic, will probably hit your shores in around six months after Australia and Japan). Winter's coming on now but around say October it gets really nice -really green, you know? But you could always ask Led Zeppelin about that. (RS107)

Complete, unedited pre-FM recording of Sinead's performance at the massive Pinkpop festival in the Netherlands. Allegedly leaked from the radio station, my copy is a second generation copy of the master. I traded it shortly after the performance and was asked not to spread it further. Twenty-five years onwards, I think it's time to liberate it...

The show was only partially broadcast on Dutch radio (unsure which songs) and tv (Troy only, you can find it on YouTube). I believe this is the first time it'll be in circulation in its entirety.

Acts on the bill that day, in order of appearance: Rainbirds, The Godfathers, Aswad, Herman Brood & His Wild Romance, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Pogues, The Christians, Sinéad O’Connor, Joe Cocker.

Jeff and Jan as opening act to Fleetwood Mac, so the show's a little shorter than some others from the tour. This one has really has nice sound and the lack of audience noise makes me wonder if this could have been recorded from the side of the stage. Sample included - enjoy.
