zeppelincheetah Posted November 10, 2009 Share Posted November 10, 2009 This is my personal favorite song off of their first album. Jimmy Page has said much about the band's use of light and shade and this song is the perfect example of that. It was originally a folk song by Anne Bredon, covered by Joan Baez. The members of Led Zeppelin heard the Joan Baez version and assumed that the song was traditional, only to find out the hard way that it in fact was an original song by Anne Bredon. This I'm sure most or all of you already know. I can't think of any other Led Zeppelin song that originally was sung by a woman. I also can't think of any other zep tune where Jimmy Page plays something that sounds like Spanish guitar. anything else to add? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
