DESCRIPTION TRACK LIST
ZEPPELIN BROADCAST FROM THEIR FIRST JAPANESE TOUR

Following the release of their third album in October 1970, Led Zeppelin took a break from live performances to concentrate on recording a follow-up. They turned down all touring offers, including a proposed New Year's Eve gig that would have been broadcast on television. They returned to Bron-Yr-Aur, a country house in Snowdonia, Wales, to write new material.

While awaiting the new album’s release, now set for November, Led Zeppelin spent August and early September touring Europe and North America, following which, on 24th September, they began a short, five date, tour of Japan, their first shows in that territory. Playing two concerts in Tokyo. one in Hiroshima and another two in Osaka, their penultimate gig in the country was performed at Osaka’s Festival Hall on 28th of the month, a gig which was recorded for live broadcast.
