ZEPPELIN BROADCAST FROM THEIR FIRST JAPANESE TOUR

Following the release of their third album in October 1970, Led Zeppelin took a break from live performances to concentrate on recording a follow-up. They turned down all touring offers, including a proposed New Year's Eve gig that would have been broadcast on television. They returned to Bron-Yr-Aur, a country house in Snowdonia, Wales, to write new material. They moved the following month to Headley Grange, a country house in Hampshire, to record the material written, using the Rolling Stones’ Mobile Studio and engineer Andy Johns, with the Stones' Ian Stewart assisting. The relaxed, atmospheric environment at Headley Grange also provided other advantages for the band, as they were able to capture spontaneous performances immediately, with some tracks arising from the communal jamming.

Jimmy Page then took the multitrack tapes to Sunset Sound in Los Angeles for mixing on 9 February 1971, with a plan for an April release. The band had a playback at Olympic Studios upon his return, but disliked the results, and so after touring through the spring and early summer, Page remixed the whole album in July. The album was delayed again over the choice of cover, whether it should be a double album, with a possible suggestion it could be issued as a set of EPs.

While awaiting the new album’s release, now set for November, Led Zeppelin spent August and early September touring Europe and North America, following which, on 24th September, they began a short, five date, tour of Japan, their first shows in that territory. Playing two concerts in Tokyo. one in Hiroshima and another two in Osaka, their penultimate gig in the country was performed at Osaka’s Festival Hall on 28th of the month, a gig which was recorded for live broadcast.

Now available on this new 2CD set, this extraordinary recording, which includes impromptu, short snatches of Zeppelin playing the Beatles’ ‘Please, Please Me’, and ‘From Me To You’ mid-show, alongside three cuts from the upcoming new record, plus a fine selection of back catalogue numbers, is released here for the first time.
