Had my eyes closed listening to The Rain Song...

Recommended Posts

One of my favorite versions is from 2-14-75, and my favorite boot of that show is from TDOLZ. On that recording, the sound of the guitar and the atmosphere of the show, which the audience recording allows you to hear so nicely, make the Rain Song especially wistful, in my opinion.

All of their albums are unique from one another, but HoTH might be the most unique for them musically.  It's the one album where if you just heard the instrumentals, and didn't know; you couldn't say for sure it was Jimmy Page.  I don't know how to explain it, maybe he used different gear for that album but it's entirely progressive, upscale constructions, with insanely tight timing even by their standards. 

 

No blues rock at all on that album, it almost sounds anti-rock, if that were possible.  PG is my favourite album, but HoTH really to me showed how broad their talents, creativity and influences were.  Of all the stand alone albums they made, it might be it's own genre.

Dave Lewis quote “ Houses of The Holy was a transition album from their  previous three albums, less of the bombardment of the first two and lacking the Shear diversity of the 3rd album and the classic status of the fourth.”- the complete guide to the music of Led Zeppelin.

I often used to close my eyes listening to music, only opening them to flip album sides. These days if my eyes are closed when the music is on it's accompanied by a snore, so my wife tells me.
