 Dennis Zimbelman In the absence of a tape we do at least have Derek Manuel's brief recollections , Led Zeppelin played mid afternoon - spectacular. The Recreation Ground is a natural amphitheatre with echoes coming back from the Georgian buildings in the background. My memory is of real ( not manufactured) echoes of Jimmy Pages guitar played with a violin bow. Mike Le Voi agrees About 2 km across the park from the stage was Bath Town Hall and I always remember the look on Robert Plant's face when he was doing Whole Lotta Love and during the screech at the end he heard his own echo coming back - so he kept screaming - and listening to the echoes. I am sure that this gave birth to the album track :-) Remember, this gig was prior to the album. PS looking at your Led Zep photo - I was about 10 rows back from the photographer, and about 20 yards to the right of stage :-) Cheers, Mike Le Voi Led Zeppelin at Bath Festival 1969 Feb 14, 2019
 Dennis Zimbelman Stuart Godfrey adds Biggest early crowd reaction was for Led Zeppelin who came on ridiculously early: I remember looking around at the gaping jaws and popping eyes as Jimmy Page did his violin bow routine...Plant was in terrific voice and he looked great - a real peacock figure amongst all the denim and leather. A flamboyant, extravagant performance - it was clear they were destined for much bigger things Many thanks to Mike Wheeler and Malcolm Strachan and Tom Tom for allowing us to use these rare photos of the band at Bath Led Zeppelin at Bath Festival 1969 Feb 14, 2019

 Dennis Zimbelman I was expecting to find a recording of the Zep performance at this earlier Bath festival, but so far we at the Archive have not been presented with a recording . Although a few audio recordings have emerged recently, theres still no audio of Zeppelin at Bath 1969. We have been approached by a fan who did record the band at Bath but he has not been able to find his tape and he says the quality was dire anyway. Rest assured that if we do ever acquire any Zep tracks we will review them here. At least the recent airing of a few bits of film of Zep from the 1969 festival give us more hope that audio is there to be found . Hopefully they are better sounding than the tapes of Zeppelin at the 1970 festival, which are really for die hard fans only, the quality is mostly atrocious and listening to them is an ordeal that only the most ardent fan would endure more than once ..... Recollections I was at the festival with 3 or 4 mates,sadly I've misplaced the photo of them. The first image is of John Peel (compare) and a leather clad Lee Jackson (Nice). Those following are of Led Zeppelin ( well Page & Plant at least) from the side of the stage. I actually had a chat with Jimmy Page and Robert Plant backstage. I asked for autographs, Jimmy asked a girl who they had just signed for to borrow her pen, she refused which prompted a reply of "bitch" from them both, they told me when I found a pen to go into the 'Pavillion' where the bands were getting hospitality , I said there was no way that I would be let in, so I never did get their autographs , but I did get a memory of meeting and a quick chat. Both of them were very friendly & accessible as many musicians were in those pre-stadium rock days days. I saw them again at the 1970 Shepton Mallet Bath Blues Festival, I recorded them, but sadly the tape ended up knackered, the quality was bad and the cross wind made the sound fluctuate.

Fresh Garbage, Shake), I Can't Quit You Baby, Train Kept a Rollin', Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, Dazed and Confused, Killing Floor, For Your Love. Notes: The group is billed with Alice Cooper as opening act, which lists them as: "Led Zeppelin featuring Jimmy Page, formerly of the Yardbirds". Upon their arrival to California, Page suffers from a fever and is forced to eliminate the 2nd set from these series of shows. RODNEY BINGENHEIMER: " I was at the Whisky A Go Go and it was Alice Cooper and Led Zeppelin and I emceed the show; I introduced them. I remember afterwards backstage at the Whisky Jimmy had a really bad case of flu and he was practically turning green." Led Zeppelin at Whiskey A Go Go West Hollywood Ca Feb 14, 2019

 Dennis Zimbelman 50 YEARS AGO: LED ZEPPELIN MAKE THEIR LIVE DEBUT DAVE SWANSONSeptember 7, 2015 Jorgen Angel, Redferns, Getty Images SHARE ON TWITTER SHARE ON FACEBOOK Led Zeppelin performed together for the first time on Sept. 7, 1968, but not under that now-famous name. By summer 1968, the Yardbirds had all but fallen apart. Their lead guitarist Jimmy Page picked up the pieces and put together an all-new version of the band for an already-booked tour. This combo would include vocalist Robert Plant, bassist John Paul Jones and drummer John Bonham. The site of their low-key (but clearly now history-making) debut was the modest Gladsaxe Teen Club of Gladsaxe, Denmark. -ADVERTISEMENT- A newsletter issued by the venue stated, "Their performance and their music were absolutely flawless, and the music continued to ring nicely in the ears for some time after the curtains were drawn after their show. Let me in particular give my praise to Jimmy Page who has made a great job with the three new men. They really succeeded and in particular the guitar solo by Page created huge applause. ... We can therefore conclude that the new Yardbirds are at least as good as the old ones were." "It's only a short while before the concert that we realized it wouldn't the 'real' Yardbirds that were going to play," Jorgen Angel, who photographed the performance, told Kashmir. "Gladsaxe Teen Club had booked the Yardbirds a few months before, but the Yardbirds broke up, and Peter Grant and Jimmy Page came with other musicians to fulfill those commitments. They signed a contract for a small tour in Scandinavia. Jimmy recruited three other guys and they played all the clubs where the Yardbirds were supposed to play." This first show was a late afternoon gig, beginning at 5:30, and was followed with a second show that evening at the Brondby Pop Club in Norregardhallen, Brondby, Denmark. Though no set list survived, it is safe to say the shows likely included songs such as "White Summer," "You Shook Me," "Dazed and Confused" and "Train Kept A-Rollin," all of which were Yardbirds staples at the time. Support acts for the first show were Fourways and Bodies, and no, we're not sure what became of them. Page soon changed the name of the group, either because of legal claims from other former Yardbirds members or out of a desire to start fresh, and the rest is history. Led Zeppelin Albums Ranked Atlantic 9. 'In Through the Out Door' (1979) With Page and Bonham spiralling into substance abuse and booze, the other half of Led Zeppelin was left to piece together the group's latest iteration. The results, outside of the odd greasy groover like 'In The Evening' or 'South Bound Saurez,' often couldn't be any further away from the monstrous blues rock that Zeppelin had unleashed 10 years before. But they might have pointed to more chart success. Put another way, Plant's pop-leaning solo career began right here. Atlantic 8. 'Coda' (1982) It's become almost mandatory to dismiss this odds-and-ends package issued after Bonham's death. Critics will tell you that its uneven, that it lacks focus. Go back, though, and 'Coda' uncovers the ferocious beating heart of Led Zeppelin after the sadly diffused period surrounding 'In Through the Out Door.' Rather than the sad goodbye that album might have been, 'Coda' reminded us of their now-lost greatness. Atlantic 7. 'Physical Graffiti' (1975) This bloated set's best moments struggle to overcome the throwaway double-album debris that engulfs them. For every funk-filled joy like 'Trampled Underfoot,' there's 'Boogie With Stu.' The towering Eastern mysteries of 'Kashmir' grind to a halt for speed bumps like 'Black Country Woman.' Unfortunately, 'Physical Graffiti' can come off (like so many multi-disc sets of that era) like a kitchen-sink project in desperate need of a good plumber. There's a fantastic single-disc release in here somewhere, though. Atlantic 6. 'Presence' (1976) If 'In Through the Out Door' belonged to Plant and Jones, then 'Presence' was a showcase for the others -- meaning a return to their bawdy early sound. Page unleashes a torrent of layered grooves, while Bonham brings his sticks down with teeth-splintering force on gems like the galloping 'Achilles Last Stand' and the coiled 'Nobody's Fault But Mine.' After a period of furious invention, and no small amount of rock star decadence, the grimy grooves of their initial period have a renewed sense of force and danger. Atlantic 5. 'Led Zeppelin' (1969) There's no denying this set's heavy-blues immediacy, its sense of throwback menace, or even that it's one of the all-time great debuts in rock. But too much of the songwriting felt (and, in some cases, actually was) borrowed from the rootsy greats that inspired Led Zeppelin, and the album -- for all of its raw power -- only hints at their flinty ambition. For anyone else, this would have ranked higher, maybe even at No. 1. Not Zeppelin. Atlantic 4. 'Houses of the Holy' (1973) Fresh off 'IV,' Led Zeppelin was clearly in the mood to stretch its legs. The result is a project as ambitious as any the group ever attempted. Of course, that remains its blessing and curse. Dotted with songs both unusual (the anthemic expanse of 'The Rain Song,' the strange sensuousness of 'No Quarter') and approachably fun, 'Houses' tended to anger those who wanted them to remain in a heavy-rocking box. Expectations aside, though, it showed there was nothing Led Zeppelin couldn't do. Unfortunately, its proximity to 'IV' likely doomed it from the start, and it's simply not as cohesive. Atlantic 3. 'Led Zeppelin III' (1970) Largely overlooked in its day, principally because it was said to have moved too far and too quickly into Zeppelin's growing experimental curiosity. Still, this set of warm, more acoustically focused tracks -- while not the building-levelling delight of Led Zeppelin's first two albums -- works as a road map toward their growing facility with complex arrangements and inspired melodic twists. That, of course, is what eventually made 'IV' into a career-shifting triumph. This album, transitional though it may be, had to happen first. Atlantic 2. 'Led Zeppelin II' (1969) Led Zeppelin begins to emerge from its own influences, setting a template for heavy-rock sounds that would stand for generations. A punishing touring schedule had hammered them into fighting shape and, with 'II,' they came out swinging. It remains a staggering wonder. That said, while there's still plenty of grinding blooze, Led Zeppelin begins to rapidly expand its sonic palette -- and it's in those moments that we sense the greatness to come. Atlantic 1. 'Led Zeppelin IV' (1971) A singular achievement -- in rock, or anywhere else -- 'IV' ties together all of the exotic strands that transformed Led Zeppelin from brilliant musicians playing blues rock to brilliant musicians, period. A bold new vision framed by rock, folk, blues and classically tinged orchestral settings would creatively combine the best of everything they'd done through three albums -- reshaping the band's sound and its legacy forever. There's a reason this is Led Zeppelin's best known, most recognized project. Everything comes together right here.

Both shoe styles feature a black base, highlighted with white and red writing. –– ADVERTISEMENT –– The shoe announcement comes as more and more activity churns out of the Led Zeppelin camp. The group celebrated its 50th anniversary with a photo book released in October, and rumors of a concert streaming service have been bubbling for some time. On an individual level, singer Robert Plant debuted his new band, Saving Grace, at a performance in England, with more another show already scheduled. Bassist John Paul Jones will perform alongside Sonic Youth guitarist Thurston Moore at London’s iconic 100 Club on March 28. And the ever-present Jimmy Page has teased "new stuff," hinting at some kind of release this year. Announcement of the Led Zeppelin shoes comes after months of speculation among sneaker fans on Reddit. An official on-sale date hasn't been revealed yet. Vans has a long history of collaborating with musicians. A highly anticipated David Bowie collaboration is also expected later this year. The company has previously released limited-edition shoes for Pearl Jam, Kiss, Slayer, Motorhead and Iron Maiden, among others.

 Dennis Zimbelman When he became famous seven years later in London – after many stints on the road in the American south with R&B bands, and also striking out in New York City – it was precisely his ‘otherness’ that made him a star. By playing exactly the kind of flashy guitar that had got him fired from a Seattle synagogue basement, Hendrix put every guitar player in London on notice. Hendrix, as Jeff Beck once described, “reset all the rules”. And it all began in the basement of a Seattle synagogue. This originally appeared in Classic Rock 217 Hendrix: The Gigs That Changed History – #2 The Cheetah club Jimi Hendrix at Seattle Wa Temple De Hirsch Sinai Feb 13, 2019
 Dennis Zimbelman Even in that synagogue gig there was already a sense of ‘otherness’ to Jimi Hendrix, as if he were somehow not of this world. Faced with the opportunity to fit in and make money with popular music the way everyone thought it should be done, he balked. The Temple De Hirsch Sinai gig was in many ways an unmitigated disaster, but in that disaster was also the making of greatness. Jimi was inventing himself, and even if it meant poverty and standing in an alley rather than being on stage, he was cementing what would be his musical signature.
