Unheard detail

19 posts in this topic

Hi,

I was just listening to Rock and roll and in years I've never spotted that little part where Jimmy Page is going crazy : From 3:13 to 3:18

Do you have some little detail that most of us might not have heard ?

Even though I have been listening to Zep since 1969, there are still little bits that feel new and previously unheard. Maybe some of it is down to not remembering but it can feel great to think you have heard it for the first time.

Sometimes I'll turn the balance down to full left or full right to get a different sound. I remember being in 8th grade and doing that to the Lemon Song on my cassette boombox & was like woah.... listen to that gong....

Oh man, I definitely have a lot of those "oh what?" moments... I'm at work so I can't check out the timestamps, but...

 

  • Sometime in Going to California, Robert's nose whistles.
  • Sometime in Tea for one, I hear a group of children playing/yelling.
  • Sometime in When the levee breaks, there is a muted hi-hat. (2:02)

Something im curious about along the lines of this subject ... In BIGLY did Zep make an early attempt at the background pre vocal like they did on WLL or is that a bleed from another track?

Yes.

At the 1:41 mark of Led Zeppelin's version of "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You", it is possible to hear Plant singing, "I can hear it calling me" just before he sings the same line in full volume: bleed from Plant's scratch vocal appears on the drum tracks, which were recorded with the full band.

One that always makes me smile (and I never noticed it until the remasters) is Robert's big-cat growl in For Your Life.

Robert Plant whispers "Okay?" after the first verse of The Rain Song. ("It is the springtime of my loving.")  More than likely confirming to the engineer that his vocal level/volume is ok.

In Stairway To Heaven at around 3:29 there is a muted note on the right side (electric) guitar.

That's awesome, I've always knew Page was a bad guitarist. (I'm kidding okay !)

I believe I was listening to it with only one headphone on.

Maybe someone has already post this before. At the end of IMTOD someone coughs, I believe it is Bonhan, and Plant adds "cough" :lol:
