  1. I've often thought about this but basically this is a great catchy song that was mysteriously left of the album even though it's the title track. A song like The Crunge made it onto the album, which I consider to be one of their weaker efforts. They also never played it live or not to my knowledge anyway, which makes you think they may not think highly of it. But then it has featured on every 'best of' that has been released. So a song that was left off of it's original album and never played live, but ends up on all the best ofs? Any thoughts?
  2. To be honest although I've enjoyed these releases I wish Jimmy had released a nice box set of all the original studio albums in nice lp replica sleeves and included just two discs of bonus material. I feel that what was released as companion discs could easily be refined to just two discs. A lot of the alternative tracks just sounded too similar to the originals. So here is my two disc 'best of' the the companion discs: 1. Whole Lotta Love (Rough Mix with vocal) 2. La La 3. Bathroom sound 4. Jennings farm blues 5. Keys to the highway/ trouble in mind 6. The Battle Of Evermore ( m

  6. I wasn't alive in the 70s but I get the impression that Zeppelin somehow managed to be quietly massive in their homeland. They didn't get the media attention of other bands such as Stones, The Who etc but looking at album charts and concert attendances it's quite easy to see they had a very large following of fans in the UK that easily rivalled or even bettered other big bands of the time. Here's some British chart stats of their first four albums just to demonstrate how they compared to two other big bands of the time: Led Zeppelin - Chart Peak = 6 Weeks in chart = 79 Led Zeppelin II

  8. Kashmir - A true all time rock classic - 10/10 In My Time Of Dying - One of my favourite riffs, heavy as hell - 10/10 How Many More Times - Another tremendous riff - 10/10 In The Light - Underrated classic from Physical graffiti - 9/10 Carouselambra - Another underrated gem - 8/10 Tea For One - Good song but outstays its welcome. Also running out of ideas rewriting Since I've Been Loving You - 7/10 Achilles Last Stand - Goes on for too long. Never quite understood the love this song gets - 6/10
  9. I'd agree with that. Iommi's tone was very thick and sludgy which gave Sabbath their heavy sound. With Zep if you listen to a song like Misty Mountain Hop you can see that a lot of Zep's heaviness came from Bonham's drumming. When the song starts the keyboard riff is quite light, then Page's guitar comes in which gives it some hard rock kick, but then Bonham comes crashing in and the whole thing becomes lot heavier and more powerful. Without Bonham that song would have sounded a lot lighter.
  10. 60s - The Beatles 70s - (Can't really decide as I like most of the big bands from this decade.) 80s - Guns N Roses 90s - Nirvana or Oasis 00s - The Strokes or Coldplay

  12. Thanks for posting. Strange how Jimmy refused to do a solo, seems like he's lacking confidence or something.
  13. I'll give each song a little rating because some of them I really like even though they may be my least favorite on the album. Led Zeppelin I - Your Time Is Gonna Come - 4/5 Led Zeppelin II - The Lemon Song - 4/5 Led Zeppelin III - Out On The Tiles - 4/5 Led Zeppelin IV - Four Sticks - 5/5 Houses Of the Holy - The Crunge - 2/5 Physical Graffiti - Sick Again - 3/5 Presence - Candy Store Rock - 3/5 In Through The Outdoor - Fool In The Rain - 3/5 Coda - Walter's Walk - 1/5

  15. My 3 favourite bands. The Holy Trinity of rock music - no one else really comes close in my opinion. Quite silly that a show with 'Rock n Roll' in the title didn't have The Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band of All Time in the final 3. But hey, it was just a bit of fun I suppose and Zeppelin won!
