Setlist: 

I Can't Quit You Baby, You Shook Me, Sunshine Woman.

Note: 

"Lost" BBC Recording session, appearing on Alexis Korner's Rhythm and Blues / World Service. A rare unreleased track, Sunshine Woman makes its only public appearance. "Sunshine Woman," Jimmy Page told Mojo (2016), “was basically made up on the spot. It was pretty brave, bearing in mind the circumstances. We played it as if we were in rehearsals, starting it around the riff and then working it out. It shows that we were evolving pretty quickly.”

Probably one of the rarest Zeppelin studio recording ever discovered. What makes this tape more attractive is group's attempt to the song called Sunshine Woman. It shares the "I've got a mortgage on my body/I've got a lean on my soul" and "When she walks/she walks just like a willow tree" lyrics and is an interesting coincidence Plant recycles those lyrics since Rod Stewart was using them in the Jeff Beck Group at the same time. The tapes were wiped by BBC crew and supposedly the only remainder master copies are somewhere in Eastern Europe but if they really exists, they are in the hands of tape hoarders or persons who have no idea what they have! It is also reported that these masters have a complete version of Sunshine Woman and obviously a Polish pirate flexi-card must be sourced from one of low gen copies. What Is And What Should Never Be was commonly attributed to this date but it's really from June 16th, 1969 broadcast and was added later to this tape.
