Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin formed out of the ashes of The Yardbirds.  Jimmy Page had joined the band in its final days, playing a pivotal role on the group's final album, 1967's Little Games, which also featured string arrangements from John Paul Jones.  During 1967, the Yardbirds were fairly inactive.  Whilst the band members decided the group's future, Page returned to session work in 1967. In the spring of 1968, he played on Jones' arrangement of Donovan's "Hurdy Gurdy Man." During the sessions, Jones requested to be part of any future project Page would develop. Page would have to assemble a band sooner than he had planned. In the summer of 1968, the Yardbirds' Keith Relf and Jim McCarty left, leaving Page and bassist Chris Dreja with the rights to the name, as well as the obligation of fulfilling an upcoming fall tour. Page set out to find a replacement vocalist and drummer. Initially, he wanted to enlist singer Terry Reid and Procol Harum's drummer B.J. Wilson, but neither musician was able to join the group. Reid suggested that Page contact Robert Plant, who was singing with a band called Hobbstweedle.

Inducted into Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 (Performer).

Hearing this on a lovely near mint 1971 pressing for the very first time (and now on my third listen), and this is such a phenomenal timeless album. It doesn't matter what genre of music you favour and even (like me) you think that heavy metal is rather embarrassing, this album is a work of art. I can't quite put my finger on it or explain why it works so well (guitar solos tend to bore me), but on this album, it all works so beautifully. Whatever you pay for this on vinyl, it is money well spent.

...Led Zeppelin are to rock what Pele is to football, what Plato is to philosophy...forerunners, harbingers call them what you wish they are/were 4 very talented musicians.
There's been a lot of bunk stirred up about Led Zeppelin over the years. Accuse the band of blues-ploitation, accuse them of occultism, accuse them of selling out. Join, if you wish, the Lilliputian chorus assembled against them; or join the majority for whom mere mention of the band inspires awe. From the raw intensity of "Communication Breakdown" to the cosmic sonorities of "Kashmir" and dubbed-up funk of "D'Yer Mak'er," Zeppelin's music almost never fails to compel. In their prime, Robert Plant's vocal range seemed as wide as the Milky Way, while Jimmy Page set new standards for sloppy perfection on guitar. Meanwhile, John Paul Jones has only John Entwistle to compete with for the centerfold spot in the Who's Who of bass guitarists. And though John Bonham's aspirations ultimately proved to be his undoing, he is revered by many as rock's most powerful drummer. Together they developed the mother tongue from which every Metal dialect derives -- a tongue spoken in psychedelic blues phrases delivered at overdriven speeds. Inevitably, Zeppelin will continue to be passed down like a sacred amulet by older brothers, uncles, fathers and eventually grandfathers to new generations of adolescents getting hip all over again to bell-bottoms, long hair and marijuana.

So I have a copy of a Led Zeppelin III album that when it's under a black light it shows a neon splatter pattern. Anybody heard of this before?

I have a copy of Physical Graffiti ss 2-200 where the label on all four sides says ST-SS- 753311 CSM. Cant find it in here, either does any of the matrix number match any in here.

The debate of who was the greatest band of all time is all a matter of opinion and personal taste so I won't tread those waters. Instead I'll add that Led Zeppelin were certainly one of the most influental bands of all time. They were the first to play really heavy blues with John Bonham getting their unique deep bass drum sound by using the oversized kick drum a la Gene Kruppa. With Plant's mystical, high pitched vocals, Jimmy Page's guitar genius and John Paul Jones' musical knowledge for just about any instrument in existance, Led Zeppelin started taking Rock to new levels with their first two albums. With Led Zeppelin III & Led Zeppelin IV (aka Zofo), they really came into their own and people stopped comparing them to Black Sabbath. All from a band comprised of leftovers from the Yardbirds, that rumor has it was named by the Who's drummer Keith Moon when he said that this band was going to 'go over like a led balloon'.
After Bonzo's death, the group felt they could not go on and still have their "Led Zeppelin" sound as they felt that Bonham's drums were a vital component to that sound. Now their music belongs to the ages.

Led Zeppelin - in my opinion the greatest Rock Band of all times. They formed in 1968 from the Ashes of the new "Yardbirds", and though the first Album did not show all of their talent, Plant & Page's Blues-interpretations and their uncompromising Hard Rock opened a whole new dimension to Rock n Roll.

They filled stadiums troughout the world from 1970 till 1980, but drugs and alcohol often led to severe problems, that couldn't even be solved by their brawny manager Peter Grant. John Bonham - maybe the world's best drummer - passed away on September 25, 1980 due to alcohol abuse. This was the end, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant disbanded the group, because John Bonham seemed to be irreplaceable to them.
