  1. Very cool indeed. Really an awesome moment in time, with the conquering of the whole world behind them and yet still the attitude of so much in front of them as well.
  2. I'm glad I finally listened to the Annie Briggs number...except for the slide into the first chord, I hear very little resemblance.
  3. Here's the original Rolling Stone review: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/albumreviews/led-zeppelin-iv-19711223
  4. Yer Blues was incredible...I just can't take Yoko's number, even with the violin trying to keep her somewhere around the key.
  5. The Yoko parts are truly un-listenable and an overwhelming tribute to the power of love to get the better of a man's sensibilities. There is really no other explanation for John Lennon agreeing to let her go on.
  6. with Thank You on III, it would have freed space for "Hey Hey What Can I Do" to be on II
  7. Same goes for the Stones. I saw a Mick Jagger interview for the "Some Girls" concert DVD and he addresses "Miss You" in particular, "the only thing the song has in common with disco is the 4/4 time." Not sure I buy that completely, they couldn't (Mick especially) have avoided the disco influence.
  8. Sunday morning when we go down to church See the men folk standing in line Say they come to pray to the lord But my little girl looks so fine
  9. Could be in continuing to honor his old buddy, Bonzo's memory.
  10. How Many More Times (just get entranced by the fact that Bonham never repeats a drum fill) Kashmir In the Light Achilles Last Stand Tea for One Carouselambra In My Time of Dying
  11. That's exactly my point...that it is on the album because the band wanted it there. I used it as an example of something the suits at the record company might push back on, to illustrate the authority over the music that the band must have enjoyed by that time.
  12. With as much material as they had at this time, if any of the band members actively "hated" it then would it have made the cut on the album? I know Atlantic would have wanted some influence, but by the time of HOTH wouldn't the band have achieved the creative control to not put out something they hated? For god's sake, they got The Crunge on that album.
