Led Zeppelin 1968

Now for the real thing. The first song (‘Good Times Bad Times’) on Led Zeppelin’s self-titled debut may have introduced the band’s confident and unique sound, but what followed did something more. While it sounded like another evil-woman blues “ramble”, Jimmy Page and gang had in fact selected and transformed a Joan Baez record for the second track. ‘Babe I’m Gonna Leave You’ would draw on folk music and give them the confidence to do so again and again, however heavy their journey became. Zep… what a great way to mark my 1000th post.” And I know that one day, baby, it’s gonna really grow, yes it is.”

    Congratulations. A real labour of love that has entertained, educated and brightened many a morning. Led Zep before 9am should be mandatory!
