  1. I thought "When Giants Walked the Earth" was actually pretty good. Definitely want to check out the Day by Day as I am hugely interested in what the recording sessions were like to produce such masterful works of art!

    Weakest Studio Album Opening Track

    HA!!! As a teenager, ALS was my ALL TIME FAVORITE Led Zep song. I hadn't listened to it in ages and then put it on a couple of years ago and felt like, "Oh, yeah. I like it" but definitely not at the obsessive, playing it over and over again and memorizing the lyrics level like I did 30 years ago! I think a really hard part of producing an album must be deciding the order of the tracks. After coming up with the songs, working together on the lyrics & arrangements, laying down all of the different parts, producing, editing, etc, etc, it must be difficult to then try to figure out how they all should flow and ESPECIALLY what song should be the opener. Come to think of it, until this thread, I never really gave this part of the music making process much thought! Since I really love all Zep tunes (except for Tea For One!), I don't think any one in particular is a weak opener. I agree with the posters that said ALS is an odd one to open an album with. The only other track on Presence that could work in the opening spot is Nobody's Fault But Mine, but honestly, it could go either way. I feel the same way about In The Evening on ITTOD. I like it; it's one of my favorite songs AND albums but I think they could have gone with Fool in the Rain or South Bound Suarez to open ITTOD with equal result.

    Best song off Houses of the Holy

    Rain Song for me but No Quarter is a verrrrrrry close second.

    Songs that Sample Led Zeppelin

    OMG, BRILLIANT! That was amazing!
  7. I searched and didn't see if this topic was already discussed, so apologies if it's repetitive. Who else likes hearing Zep pop up in unexpected places? I'm generally not the biggest hip hop fan but loved to hear one of my all time favorites, Ten Years Gone, sampled throughout this Tupac track

    Which LZ Song Made the Biggest First Impression on You?

    I was born in 1974 and was blessed to have a dad that LOVED rock music. My earliest memories of music were The Who, Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin. He was also a fan of Elton John, Blondie and The Cars. He used to set me up at this high table we had in the living room so I could "play" the piano along with Elton on "Benny & the Jets" and to get us revved up to clean the house on Saturday mornings, he'd blast Jimi's "Gypsy Eyes". To this day, hearing that opening drum kick makes me look for a broom! But, on to Zep... one of my earliest memories was Stairway... for a long time, it was one of my least favorite Zep songs because my dad would play it over and over and over again and I thought it was so sad and melancholy. I've since come to appreciate it! Immigrant Song was another early Zep memory and I loved it! As far as first impressions go, I think Achilles Last Stand was the first song that I "discovered" on my own that really blew me away. I was in high school and remember playing the tape over and over and over again.

    Items you can't convince yourself to buy

    I agree that a lot of their merchandise can be a little "busy", but OTOH, it's not like people are wearing them to the office! Sometimes, simplicity is more elegant, of course.

    I should have convinced myself NOT to buy those items!

    Hadn't seen this one before. What's the origin?

    1. Had no idea that Noel Redding was involved with Lord Sutch! 2. The pants on Mr. Sutch are AMAZING!

    Items you can't convince yourself to buy

    I'll admit that I recently purchased two items; one is a Led Zeppelin t-shirt that found at Target, of all places (they also had Journey, I think!), and the same t-shirt with the swan song guy replaced with a cat and the words, "Cat Zeppelin" over the top.
  15. All good things must come to an end. If John Bonham had lived (and no one else died), they would eventually have broken up officially or just drifted apart. It's the nature of the creative beast. I think part of the mystique is their lack of permanence. Obviously, the Rolling Stones and the Who won't be with us forever, but it sure feels that way! If something is always around / available, you take it for granted.
