After seeing Heart in Indio, California a year ago and noticing that they've been rotating a lot of different Zeppelin tunes in and out of their setlist, I decided to put together a compilation of their Zeppelin covers. This is not meant to be definitive, nor am I claiming that these are the best performances or recordings of each tune. However, over the last couple of years, I did check out several dozen Heart torrents between Dime and Traders Den, and auditioned several versions of each tune before selecting the ones presented here. If you listen straight through, the transitions sound pretty clean and the different sources fit together pretty well. Though if you skip from the middle of one tune to the middle of another, the differences will be more noticeable. I drew heavily from the matrix of the Indio show I attended in 2013, but hey, it's my project! Jason Bonham plays drums on 8 of the 14 tunes. All of these are excellent audience recordings except for the last track, which is an FM source. The whole thing fits nicely onto a CD-R with a few seconds to spare. Thanks to all the tapers who made this possible. I recommend you download their complete torrents and check out the entire show in each case. The performances and recordings are all excellent.
