“New” footage from Led Zeppelin‘s second of two September 19, 1970 concerts at Madison Square Garden in New York City recently was uploaded to YouTube. The brief but high-quality clip was shared by YouTuber ikhnation and includes portions of the “Immigrant Song” opener and “Heartbreaker” that followed.

Led Zeppelin made their MSG debut on September 19, 1970 with performances at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. The concerts were held one day after guitarist Jimi Hendrix’s tragic death. “The evening’s performance is widely considered one of their best ever,” reads a note on LedZeppelin.com as pointed out by Louder Sound.

A reel of 8mm film was paired with audience audio to create the clip posted on YouTube. “It’s amazing to me how just under 3 minutes of fragmented Zeppelin footage is still better than any other band on the planet,” commented YouTuber Deadringer. “Thanks for sharing this.”

The two concerts in New York City brought Led Zeppelin’s North American Summer Tour 1970 to a close. Watch the clip featuring Led Zeppelin at MSG below:
