Love that one !

Let me add... Babe I'm Gonna Leave You and, all of the acoustic work on Who's Next

Behind Blues Eyes? Led Zeppelin III is one of the most underated albums of all time. The Immigrant Song does not really describe the album at all. If I can only pick one riff of alll time though, its always gonna be Stairway to Heaven
