A newly-unearthed and super-rare recording of LED ZEPPELIN performing an epic 13-minute version of “Dazed And Confused” can be heard below
The audio clip features LED ZEPPELIN performing the song at Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, on October 5, 1969, and was captured by a fan of the band via his TV speakers, from a broadcast which took place on November 12, 1969 on the Dutch television show “Dit is het begin” (‘This is the beginning’).
The newly found recording was posted to YouTube by hardcore LED ZEPPELIN fan Mark McFall, who is also the founder of the Zepfan memorabilia website.
The official LED ZEPPELIN website features a small review of the show in question, which was one of three the band played in Holland that week, which reads: “The concert hall was packed, TV cameras were everywhere and the atmosphere crackled. Heavy, crashing Zeppelin sounds swept the audience onto another plain and the timing of their applause indicated their appreciation of the material. Wild, standing ovations brought the group back time and time again and they finally left the stage exhausted.”
“It was successful in that Zep had established themselves in Holland.”
