THE YARDBIRDS PLAY THE KERRISDALE ARENA, VANCOUVER

After another strenuous and frustrating episode at the Canadian border, we had come from San Francisco to Vancouver to play a psychedelic bonanza at the Kerrisdale Arena on this day and at the Garden Auditorum on the 1st. At this time, the Yardbirds album ‘Little Games’ had been released for about a week. The music featured here is the home demo on 12-string acoustic guitar and auto-harp of ‘Only The Black Rose’ from the ‘Little Games’ album.

‘RIGHT BY YOU’ BY STEPHEN STILLS IS RELEASED

Today in 1984 sees the release of Stephen Still’s album ‘Right By You’. Stephen had visited my aptly-named recording studio, The Sol, on the river Thames in Cookham, Berkshire so that I might supply some overdubs to his tracks; ‘50/50’, ‘Right By You’ and ‘Flaming Heart’ which were recorded on the 4th and 5th of May of this year. I greatly respected Stephen’s work and would have preferred to have worked with him from source, but as it was, it was just overdubbing the session in England that had originated in the States.

LED ZEPPELIN PLAY THE LAST NIGHT OF MADISON SQUARE GARDEN

This was the final night of our American tour and here at Madison Square Garden recording and filming the concert. I was informed as we were on the side stage just before going on to perform that there had been a robbery at the Drake Hotel where the safety deposit box had been relieved of cash the previous night. Somehow all this manifested in even more passion in that night’s performance.

I PLAYED MADISON SQUARE GARDEN WITH LED ZEPPELIN

On the 27th July 1973, we began the recording process for what was to become ‘The Song Remains the Same’. The film director for the project was Joe Massot who, with his film crew, had been to Baltimore and Pittsburgh two dates before New York and I hoped that they had become familiar with our shows rather than experience a baptism by fire at the run of shows at this wonderful concert arena. The sound recording was done with a mobile recording studio, courtesy of Bearsville Sound and Eddie Kramer handled the engineering on this and subsequent evenings. I knew this was going to be an epic over the next few days.

I PLAYED VANCOUVER PNE AGRODOME, CANADA WITH LED ZEPPELIN

It was always good to play with Vanilla Fudge, we had supported them on our first tour of the States in 1968 and it was good to reciprocate.

The Vanilla Fudge had played one date in London at the Palladium Theatre in 1967. I missed this show, but I remember everyone talking about this amazing group, their drummer Carmine Appice and, especially, their sound system. They were always an exciting band to listen to. Their debut album had made a massive impression on musicians at that time.
