A previously undiscovered bootleg of a 1971 Led Zeppelin gig has been unearthed at a car boot sale.

The gig, from the band’s 1971 show at St Matthew’s Baths Hall in Ipswich features tracks including ‘Immigrant Song’, ‘Whole Lotta Love’, ‘Stairway To Heaven’, ‘Rock & Roll’, and ‘Black Dog’.

Bargain hunter Vic Kemp bought the CD bootleg at a car boot sale in Portman Road, Suffolk, and told the Evening Star that he picked it up for just “two or three pounds”.

He explained: “I was going through a stand of CDs at the car boot at Portman Road and the guy who was selling them said, “you might be interested in this”.”

Kemp continued by saying that the gig “must have been recorded by someone standing at the front with a microphone. You can hear Robert Plant talking to the audience quite clearly.”

It’s currently unclear whether any duplicate recordings of the tape have been made.
