Bring It On Home from Coda Deluxe Release

Recommended Posts

OK-this might be over at the Hotel, and it might even be here... but I haven't looked in the Deluxe release threads for a while.

Does anyone know the story behind this version? I'm fascinated by just how F'ing good it is.  Blows my mind every time I play it.  Was it recorded to make the LZII release??  Or was it just a jam session?  What was its intended purpose?  It's just blistering on ALL levels.

The only problem I have with it is, I just wish it was about a full minute longer.

I was under the impression it was a 'live' studio run through.

It is very heavy & I really need to listen to it again because I haven't had it on for a while.

I loved this version the first few times I heard it, but then I started noticing how incredibly repetitious the guitar riff was and lost interest in it. Page sounds like he's really forcing that verse riff in there and it doesn't quite fit. But it also sounds like they're playing it much faster, so he might've struggled with the tempo. Bonzo is absolutely going crazy though, just imagine if he played like that on the album.

Yup, that's what it is - an early run through. Recorded July 24, 1969 at Atlantic Studios, NY. The tape box is hand-written as "Bring It All Home".

THAT'S what I was looking for.

Thanks Sam.

So now I have to ask, was this the only track from that session that was done/preserved??

On the release of this, i think it was a new york guy on this board, that  made a point to say, he thought it was the best song of the whole reissues....and i think i agree with that, for pure young energy and gumption. But there are others that are interesting for different reasons, creativity, heavy, vocal, guitar, drum, etc

I too love this track/version, and for me it was one of the most pleasant surprises of all the companion tracks.

It doesn't really get repetitive, because it's short enough for that amount of riffs and sections and this version has that early almost scary element with lots of energy and detailed drum improvisation.
