What's missing in the greatest hits?

Recommended Posts

Led Zeppelin have released two official greatest hits compilations (to my knowledge): Best of Led Zeppelin Early/Latter Days and Mothership. The two compilations combined contain a total of 27 songs:

Good Times Bad Times

Communication Breakdown

Babe I'm Gonna Leave You

Dazed and Confused

Whole Lotta Love

Ramble On

Heartbreaker

What Is And What Should Never Be

Immigrant Song

Since I've Been Loving You

Black Dog

Rock and Roll

The Battle of Evermore

When the Levee Breaks

Stairway to Heaven

The Song Remains the Same

No Quarter

D'yer Mak'er

Over the Hills and Far Away

Trampled Under Foot

Kashmir

Houses of the Holy

Ten Years Gone

Achilles Last Stand

Nobody's Fault But Mine

All My Love

In the Evening

If you had to choose just 5 songs to add to this list of "greatest hits" what would they be?

This was hard to choose, but for me:

How Many More Times

The Rover

The Ocean

Going to California

In My Time of Dying

Tea For One

That's The Way

Fool In The Rain

I think their later albums get short-changed for their earlier stuff.

There was also Remasters that was released in 1990. The only track from that not featured on the other two was Celebration Day.

The Rain Song, like Celebration Day, was on Remasters but not on the other two.

The Rain Song was also on Remasters, but not these. (someone just beat me to it!) ;)

Well if you are a fan, there will always be something missing from this kind of compilations and you probably won't even listen to such compilations if you really love the band and most of it's work.

Another thing is Zep never really had chart hits, so the question is, how do you define, what is missing from greatets hits compilations?? Are these personal favourites that you would like to see on early days/latter days and mothership or are this very known songs for which there just wasn't enough space on these compilations??

If i would pick a more bizzare and ''non hit stuff'' choice, i would say Hot's on for nowhere, That's the way, I'm gonna crawl, Tea for one and Fool in the rain if i would pick more obvious stuff it would be The rain song, Tangerine, Going to california, The Rover and Bron-yr-aur!!

1. "The Ocean" - My favorite song not included on either.

2. "The Rover" - Awesome song.

3. "Going to California" - One of my favorite acoustic Led Zeppelin songs.

4. "Moby Dick" - I was really surprised not to see this on Mothership, I'd thought they'd want to showcase Bonham's skill.

Those are the only ones I mind not seeing in there. Don't know what I'd choose for fifth.

I saved my money and bought the complete studio recordings when it came out. Saved me the trouble of having to worry about stuff like this.

It's not really a matter of not being able to listen to the song. It's a matter of what songs you consider worthy of being on the greatest hits albums.

Not sure if they were "hits" but I like them more than some of the songs that did make the album.
