  1. Quite right. Maybe this forum needs an area where lyrics are posted to be the definitive guide to the songs. I for one would love to know what Plant really says on Carouselambra.
  2. No problem at all. Enjoy the day my friend.
  3. It may be. But be prepared to be ridiculed here for thinking it.
  4. I never said it was beaten or beatnik woman, OTHERS DID and I disagreed with them. Read carefully. I said it was Beatle Laid woman, which by the way, I have to admit I may be wrong here. Dont be so politically correct anyway...we are talking 1971 Lyrics. I never heard those old blues songs referencing big legged women and appreciate the clips. Just never liked that kind of music even tho it influenced Zep. A friend gave me a Lead Belly CD...I couldnt get through it. I will tell you though, I was 11 when BD came out. Had no idea what was being said but loved the song. Didn't know or c
  5. Not true. I do. So did others. And the other terms "I suggested" were not suggested by me. They are terms OTHERS told me Plant was saying, that I disbelieved.
  6. HAHA You are probably correct. I'd put a lot of money up saying I wont find it too! Perhaps porgie66 is correct and Plant says "biga legged" instead of big, yet I remember Beatle Laid. And I remember the article. Was the author inferring it? Perhaps. Trying to remember what I read back then. Crawdaddy, Cream,..... In any case, it ISNT ridiculous hummingbird69. Just keep an open mind. I may be 1000% wrong and will admit it, but I may be right too. If I am wrong it has to be BIGA legged like porgie66 says, there is another syllable there.
  7. And it definitely isn't "Lemonade Woman aint got no soul"! Sure wish I could find my coworker from the 1980s (We worked in an aluminum extrusion mill together) who thought it was that! But he got the ending sound correct (aid).
  8. Nope...just listened to the studio version over and over. I hear a TWO SYLLABLE first word. I hear BEATLE. What they did live is of no concern here....they may have decided to scale it back a bit in regards to the Beatles. What I really need is to find the magazine article where it was talked about being a friendly jab. What magazines were around in the mid 70S?
  9. Also the song is ripe with sexual innuendos. Big legged ....really? And I am not messing with anybody. I spent the last 45 years knowing it is Beatle-laid and not big-legged. I need the two syllable first word....it isnt Big.
  10. Yes you are right, most say BIG legged instead of long legged (Ive heard people say "long legged" too, as well as "Beatnik woman" "Beaten Woman" and a few others and my favorite from a long ago co-worker "Lemonade woman"!!! (there is that L again)). But I STILL say its BEATLE LAID. All I ask is you LISTEN to it. The first word is TWO syllables. Just LISTEN to it.
  11. Now, I am 58 and vividly remember Black Dog when it came out. I Loved it and still do. I vividly remember reading the lyrics in a magazine a few years later....say around 1974 or so, but cannot remember WHICH magazine now 40+ years later, about the line that NOW is said to be: "I dont know, but I've been told, long-legged woman aint got no soul." Nope, 100% WRONG. I and the fellow Led Heads I grew up with, as well as the magazine article, as well as my ears know it is: "I dont know, but I've been told, Beatle-laid woman aint got no soul". The article mentioned that LZ were on f
  12. Controversial? Okay, strap in, I am going to get tons of hate spewed my way. 1. I can't stand the early live Zep concerts either, like someone earlier posted. I find myself embarrassed FOR plant with all the weird noises he makes. To me, Zep live didnt get good until 72 or so, and I much prefer the later 1977 or so concerts. This may have to do with my age...born in 1960. 2. I think plant is a total diva now, to ignore Zep but get all excited over Krause or the Fantastic Fence Posts. PLEASE! 3. I think plant would be a nobody if Jimmy didnt find him and while he owes us nothing,
  13. Agree with Stryder. I Look at it this way: Assume the world ends....a few survive, as always happens. Decades turn to centuries and technology slowly comes back. Finally someone finds or rebuilds an 8 track or cassette player and gets it to work... Okay, far fetched I know but ..... which Zep song would you want to survive, which ONE Zeppelin song would you want the people to hear? Gotta be Stairway To Heaven!
  14. And I'm hoping against hope that JP has, somewhere stashed away....unheard studio material....even an unfinished song..., like we got the last few years (10 ribs, LaLA, etc). I LOVED that stuff!
  15. Another true story. I would drive from Ohio to either Wyoming or Montana every August or September for a backpacking trip. I think my 1988 Chevy S-10 was my first vehicle with a radio that had the ability to scan. So starting with the 1989 trip I would let the radio scan and would only stop it for Zeppelin or something else really good (Highway Star, Uriah Heep stuff, etc). I remember hearing Zep all the time during the 2 day drive out and the 2 day drive back. Yes I could have popped in a cassette but it was more fun to find the variety scanning offered. There was a cool station in Minnesota
  16. While driving today I was scanning the radio trying to find some Zep. I did ...... it was NOT Fool In The Rain!!! Finally!!!! Sure hope the DJ doesnt get reprimanded for playing Ramble On instead.
  17. Oh my gosh every time I think, "Ok Dan, cut plant some slack", I read an article like the one linked to here. Elle King = yes, JPJ and Pagey = No. Wow. Really? What a slap in his former friends faces. In my mind he is about 2 steps away from "Diva Category".
  18. After plants first solo album which I like, I consider the rest to be mostly junk, but admittedly do like 29 Palms.
  19. Right on jsj. What I don't get is the inconsistency of the CODA naysayers. On the one hand they say "CODA isn't really an album because its nothing but songs leftover from other albums" then they will go on to say "Houses of the Holy (the song) is awesome" even tho on PG its a "leftover" from HOTH album! There are several other examples of songs written for albums that were not used on that album, only to appear on later ones. Of course these are regarded as "official" LZ songs. Then of course there is Hey Hey what Can I do, which isn't on ANY studio album, and also Traveling Riverside Blues.
  20. Haha thanks! But I'm probably older than you. I was 16 when ALS was released, not a preteen!! But thank you again, it would be nice to be 5 or 6 years younger right now! Frankly while I LOVE their early albums too, I just cannot stand listening to their early concerts. Sometimes I am actually embarrassed FOR them when they do that weird stuff I cant stand.
  21. I wish the three of them (JP, JPJ, and Jason B ) would ask plant to finish some unfinished songs like Lala, 10 ribs, St Tristam's Sword Midnight Moonlight, and others, with a few new songs, to make up one last album. When he says no then get another singer (GVH singer?) and JUST DO IT. Yes it would STILL be Zeppelin for me. I wonder if on an AC/DC forum everyone considers every song after Bon Scott to be "not AC/DC"? I know Uriah Heep fans are fans until the end, and the rabid AC/DC fans still consider them to be AC/DC, and the Eagles fans don't have trouble with post Joe Walsh, and a lot of V
  22. LOVED the music from this movie. LOVED IT. Bought it on vinyl when it came out. Went to see the movie in Youngstown Ohio the first night it showed taking several of my zep buddies with me. Major disappointment. The music was great, the concert footage was great, but those fantasy sequences????? What????? They dragged on and on. Im not into, and never have been into, that 'woo-woo" stuff (for lack of a better word). Recently watched the movie again to see if I have changed. Nope... But I still crank the album!
  23. Achilles. Not my favorite Zep song, but one of the top ones for me and if I had to pick ONE for posterity it would be this.
  24. Strongest Achilles Last stand. Weakest for me, GTBT. But then I MUCH prefer the mighty Zep from the mid 70s than the earlier stuff.
