Led Zeppelin – Legendary Concert Vancouver 1970

Posted: June 29, 2015 in Vinyl

This is one of the few Led Zeppelin bootlegs that has one source and is from a concert. As the title suggests it was recorded in Vancouver, Canada on March 21, 1970. By the name of the “label” releasing it, Ars Musica Industria, I’m assuming this is an Italian boot.

Variants for this are based on the cover. As far as I know all copies were pressed on black vinyl. There are subtle differences with the covers though, as there is what looks like a sticker on the cover, but it’s actually printed on the jacket and is designed to look like a sticker. This “sticker” comes in different colors. My copy has a yellow “sticker” but I have seen other copes with a pink “sticker.” As is typical with bootlegs, pressing info is not available.

The sound quality on this is terrible. It’s way too bassy and there is tons of feedback. By the sound I’m assuming this boot is not a soundboard recording and is a crowd recording, and I’m guessing the person who recorded it stood right in front of the speakers. There is barely any balance to the recording. Between the feedback and the recording being bass heavy, it was a good performance and set list (for the portion featured on this boot). Poor sound quality aside, this boot does give you the feeling of being there; being on the floor at a Zeppelin show.

Here is the track listing:

Side A:

  1. We’re Gonna Groove
  2. Heartbreaker
  3. Since I’ve Been Loving You

Side B:

  1. Thank You
  2. What Is And What Should Never Be
  3. Whole Lotta Love
  4. Communication Breakdown
