Ever want to know what an early Led Zeppelin concert experience was like? We've got you covered.

Below, you can check out some vintage, high-quality video from a March 17, 1969, Led Zeppelin TV appearance. In the US, their self-titled debut album was only three months old—and it wouldn't be released in the UK for another two weeks.

The band—Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham—was on a tour of the UK and Scandinavia when they visited TV-Byen studios in Gladsaxe, Denmark, to play four tracks from their new album, all of which you can hear below: “Communication Breakdown,” “Dazed and Confused,” “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You” and “How Many More Times.”

Page is playing his 1959 Fender Telecaster, a gift from Jeff Beck and a holdover from his Yardbirds days. And Page fans are in luck, because there's lots of close-up camera work during his solos, including his “Communication Breakdown” Tele-shred workout.

Enjoy!
