Led Zeppelin: 1975-02-28 Baton Rouge, LA (FLAC_SB_3 CD)

I was listening to this excellent show yesterday and then I realized it was 38 years ago today this concert was held in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  That helped me decide what to upload to my blog today :-)

This is a superb sounding show.  It has the right mix and instruments, vocals, etc all seemed balanced very well.  About half way through "The Song Remains The Same", the sound changes a little making it just right for the rest of the show.  This could have been an official release had Led Zeppelin ever wanted to officially release it.

A special thanks goes out to "Amduscia" over at Royal Orleans for making this show available.  This is definitely one of the best sounding 1975 tour Led Zeppelin shows.  There are a number of them out there, but this is definitely one more of them.

By the way, I wonder why they did not call this EVSD release "Raging Cajun"?  That makes more of a rhyming sense to me :-)

I hope you enjoy this show from a few hours of history that occurred 35 years ago tonight.

Heart: 1982-05-28 Dortmund, Germany (Pro Shot DVD)

Here is a great Heart concert aired on the German TV program "RockPop" in 1982.  Heart must have been playing a German rock festival or something similar when this show was recorded.  I say this because I have a Joan Jett And The Blackhearts DVD from this same venue, on the same date, and aired on the same German TV program too.  I wonder if there might be any other good bands that might have played and were recorded too?

This is a great recording and enjoyable show by Ann and Nancy Wilson and band  (aka Heart).  And they look really young too.  I watched this again today before uploading it here :-)

Enjoy the show...
