SteveAJones Posted November 23, 2007 Author Share Posted November 23, 2007 (edited) What's the earliest known recording of Zeppelin (or the New Yardbirds)? I have a recording of their show in Spokane Washington on 12.30.68, but I don't know if this is the earliest. In August or September 1968 John Paul Jones was hired for a session with U.K. singer P.J. Proby who was recording an album at Landsdowne Studios in London. John got the other three members of Zeppelin in on the session as it was good money to be made. From what I recall Robert Plant's voice does not appear on that album; he was simply there. I know it may not make sense for him to have been there if he wasn't going to sing but John said Robert was there. Then of course there is the first Led Zeppelin album, recorded in October 1968. You must mean live recordings, right? So far as I know the one to which you refer remains the earliest known live recording but tapes continue to surface all the time. There was a soundboard recording of Southampton 1973 which was recently made available. Edited November 23, 2007 by SteveAJones Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
