This thread could go on a while.

As Long as I Have You-Fresh Garbage was a cover of 2 songs. They usually threw in Mockingbird, Shake, and maybe one or two other medleys. All of these were covers. As Long as I Have You was an obscure cover from Garrett Mims or something like that. I can't remember the guys name so I'm probably wrong. Fresh Garbage was a Spirit cover.

Hey Joe-Written by Billy Roberts in the early 60s.

Louie Louie-The Kingsmen

Blueberry Hill-Fats Domino

Woodstock-CSN cover

For What it's Worth-Buffalo Springfield cover

The Shape I'm In-The Band

Killing Floor-Howlin' Wolf they would change it to the Lemon Song before really dropping it by mid 69.

Then there's the Yardbirds stuff they did for the first year. Which was some of their material. Shapes of Things, Train Kept a Rolling which was a cover, Dazed was from the Yardbirds which was also a cover, For Your Love and a few other songs.

You also have all the stuff from Zepp's albums that was a cover of something. You Shook Me, How Many More Times was a cover of How Many More Years and the Hunter, I Can't Quit You Babe, Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, and Black Mountainside from Zeppelin I. Bring it on Home was a cover also from II. Gallows Pole was a traditional song off III. When the Levee Breaks was a Memphis Minnie, KC Joe song in the 30s. In My Time of Dying was based off a Blind Willie Johnson tune so was Nobody's Fault but Mine.

There's a ton of others.

Traveling Riverside Blues (Robert Johnson)...you're not a true Led Zep fan if you leave that one out. :D

They never really played that live and it's not really a cover of the Robert Johnson song. It's completely different from the song other than it has Squeeze My Lemon.

yeah I guess that depends on how you define a "cover"
I concur. Playing a measure, refrain, or a verse or two IMO does'nt constitute a "cover", but merely a snippet or teaser. Like Mary Lou on HTWWW is a cover, San Francisco in D&C from TSRTS is not.

The fact there would be an endless list of covers and snippets is that Robert was/is a walking music encyclopedia.
