I don't think Zeppelin II can be re-sequenced and improved at the same time. It is perfect as is. But Zeppelin three, I could imagine putting Hey Hey What Can I Do after SIBLY at the end of side one, getting rid of Hats Off to Roy Harper and replacing it with OOTT end of side two.

Side One:

  1. Immigrant Song
  2. Friends
  3. Celebration Day
  4. Since I've Been Loving You
  5. Hey Hey What Can I do

Side Two:

  1. Gallow's Pole
  2. Tangerine
  3. That's The Way
  4. Bron-Y-aur Stomp
  5. Out On The Tiles

I like having a heavy tune at the end of side two for a little more balance. It's kind of a reward for patiently sitting through the "acoustic set". I think Hats Off is a boring song and I love the blues. It's just that with all that effect on Plant's vocals it becomes a mess and for me it's hard to listen to. If they wanted to insist on playing some real blues, a good song they recorded at that time was an acoustic version of Key to the Highway. That would have been a better choice to my ears. However, I think Hey Hey What Can I Do has lasted the test of time. It's still popular and people love it. I think it's a much stronger choice than Hats Off for the third album.

And for Zeppelin II, the only way I can see an improvement at all is to maybe replace Moby Dick with The Girl I Love She's Got Long Black Wavy Hair. I think that would have been pretty good.

I had one of those, I got to prefer it to the LP version. The first album also has a different running order on some cassette releases.

A1 Your Time Is Gonna Come  
A2 Babe I'm Gonna Leave You  
A3 Black Mountain Side  
A4 Dazed And Confused  
B1 Good Times Bad Times  
B2 You Shook Me  
B3 Communication Breakdown  
B4 I Can't Quit You Baby  
B5

How Many More Times

If I remember correctly HMMT was shortened.
