Led Zeppelin work on second album as 50th anniversary series continues

Led Zeppelin write, road-test and record new material for their second album in 1969 in the latest episode of the band’s 50th anniversary video history series.

Following live dates in support of their self-titled debut earlier in the year, the group return to California in the spring of 69 for multiple dates at a number of legendary venues, including the Fillmore West and Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco, the Whiskey A Go Go in Los Angeles, Pasadena’s Rose Palace and the Santa Monica Civic Center.

The band began slipping new material into their shows as they continued to record songs for what would become “Led Zeppelin II” at a number of different US studios with guitarist Jimmy Page producing alongside engineer Eddie Kramer.

The album would feature anthems like “Whole Lotta Love”, “Heartbreaker” and “Ramble On”, among others, when it surfaced later in the year alongside a series of fall tours to launch the record.
