Speaking of his find to the Evening Star, Mr Kemp said: "I was going through a stand of CDs at the car boot at Portman Road and the guy who was selling them said 'you might be interested in this.'
"It must have been recorded by someone standing at the front with a microphone. You can hear [singer] Robert Plant talking to the audience quite clearly."
The bootleg captures the whole of the concert which was performed in the wake of their most famous album, 'IV' (aka 'Zoso' and "The Four Symbols"). The set includes versions of 'Immigrant Song,' 'Rock And Roll,' 'Black Dog,' 'Whole Lotta Love' and what was to become their anthem, 'Stairway To Heaven.'
"It only cost me two or three pounds," he continued. "I've no idea how many other copies there are or if it's worth anything. It's just incredible that they played such a small venue - and it sounds an amazing gig."
Tickets for the concert cost just £1.
Led Zeppelin's demise came in 1980 after the death of drummer John Bonham though the surviving members reformed for an appearance at Live Aid in 1985 and a full concert in December 2007 at London's O2 Arena where they were joined on drums by Bonham's son Jason.
