Day 13: 3/19/1969 London, England

3/19/1969 London, England The Complete BBC Radio Sessions
I Can't Quit You Baby, You Shook Me, Sunshine Woman

The band's second BBC appearance starts with an introduction by Alexis Korner. Plant's low voice develops into a growl during I Can't Quit You Baby. The songs are separated by more talk from Korner. You Shook Me is followed by the oddity Sunshine Woman, featuring Jones on piano.

The tape is a noisy, slightly muffled recording of a radio broadcast.

*- the version of What is and What Should Never Be commonly included with this tape is actually from the band's third BBC appearance on 6/16/1969.

1969-03-19 Maida Vale Studio, London, England "The Complete BBC Radio Sessions" (EVSD)
A bit uneven recording, dropping in and out a bit, but enjoyable anyway. Though the first album just came out a few months earlier, the show starts with a song that will be on the second album, What Is and What Should Never Be, in a form that is very similar to the final album version. They then do I Can't Quit You Baby and You Shook me that are from the first album, then wrap up with Sunshine Woman. A fairly subdue performance, a bit hissy, but enjoyable.
