Led Zep's Bron-Yr-Aur Among Best of All Time


Recommended Posts

Seattle writer Tom Kipp has listed Bron-Yr-Aur among the greatest songs of all time. He writes, "In terms of Jimmy Page's accomplishments, I think of it as the ultimate example of "Lyricism & Equilibrium" (a title I gave to one of my favorite compilation tapes 20-odd years ago, on which "B-Y-A" served as a side-opening linchpin) and "Fury Withheld" (yet to be compiled)."

There's much more. The article is very well written and there are some great links in the text. It can be found here:

I love Bron-Yr-Aur - I think it must one of the greatest accoustic solos of all time. It has a lovely soft soothing sound to it. I imagine a brook of gently flowing water somewhere in rural Wales when I listen to it.

I couldn't agree more. I always imagine looking out my window and seeing a great water fall and just realizing how great it is to be alive. Such a fantastic song.
