In which Robert Plant, part rock god, part mystical hippy steeped in the timeless legends of the earth, shows our American cousins how to make the most of St. Valentine’s Day, on 14th February 1975, exactly thirty-six years ago today.
This mixing desk, or soundboard, tape from Zeppelin’s legendary three hour performance at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, NY captures a magic concert in superb sound quality. It is one of the very best live recordings of the band during their 1975 tour to promote the monumental Physical Graffiti double album. We play it loud!
It first sneaked out on the Empress Valley Supreme Disc label, but I’m sure you can find it on the internet if you know where to look! You can download my cover and tray artwork as PDF files here and here.
