One of my favorite, if not my favorite, version of Over The Hills And Far Away.
March 27, 1975. Taped by the legendary Mike Millard on his stealth (hidden under a wheelchair) Nakamichi rig. Insanely good quality.
Enjoy some great Led Zeppelin.
More people should know about Mike Millard, the only way how I know about him is through @got-to-rise-above and my friend Phil.
That was one huge ass deck to be stealth recording with back then……def took some chutzpah to hide from Peter Grant 😉
The recordings of “Mike the Mike” are more than great bootlegs. In fact, he hated that his shows got turned into bootlegs for sale. He made them for friends, and the care shows. The best of them are time machines that allow you to hear what it was like to BE at those shows. Here’s his unhappy story (including the source of the pic above, of one of Mike’s handmade labels) and here’s a list of his most widely circulating tapes.
