ON THIS DAY… 24 JUN 1969
LED ZEPPELIN RECORDED THE JOHN PEEL SESSIONS AT MAIDA VALE, LONDON

'Whole Lotta Love' / 'What Is and What Should Never Be' / 'Communication Breakdown' / 'Travelling Riverside Blues’
We recorded this show at Maida Vale studio to promote ‘Led Zeppelin II’. In typical Led Zeppelin tradition ‘Travelling Riverside Blues’ was made up on the spot from a riff I had on the electric twelve string. We had reached a point at the BBC where you could overdub a solo over the initial track of the song. This helped a lot to give a more complete rendition of our material and I must say the BBC engineer Tony Wilson did a really good job for us on this day. The BBC producer was John Walters.
