1969 Live at the Whisky A Go-Go

This is an unofficial live album recorded in Toronto in 1969 and it’s been released under a variety of different album titles.
Led Zeppelin BBC Sessions includes an in concert performance of the band from April 1971 as well as live in the studio recordings and songs from gigs in 1969.
It’s often overlooked as a Led Zeppelin live album with much more attention given to:
How The West Was Won – 1972
The Song Remains The Same – 1973
The 2012 release of the reunion concert, Celebration Day has also drawn attention away from the BBC Sessions album. After all how many live Led Zeppelin albums do most fans need?
I think that’s a shame.
