1969 Jimmy Page / Led Zeppelin at Whisky a Go Go

1969 Jimmy Page / Led Zeppelin at Whisky a Go Go

Called by some the "supergroup that never happened", it was more the "musicians who recorded while messing around and never released the tapes". Jimmy Page, Chris Squire and Alan White jammed at Jimmy Page's Sol Studios and recorded the demos but it went no further. Jimmy Page went on to record his soundtrack for Death Wish II in 1982 and toured in 1983 for the ARMS concert series.  The band Yes reformed itself in 1983.

Compare the demo below from the XYZ sessions to The Firm's Fortune Hunter.
