The intro to "Heartbreaker" fires me up! And then at the end where it kinda stops & then re-starts with this faster, driving tempo. Yes, great song indeed!

I got my hands on a copy of Hammer of the Gods, the book, so I'm looking forward to delving into their history a bit. From what I've heard, they were pretty crazy & into a whole lotta shennanigans on the road! Love it!

myself.

I'm not a huge Zeppelin fan...but I will admit that there are some great songs that I do still enjoy listening to from time to time.

Songs like:
-The Ocean (Still one of the most inventive guitar riffs I think I may have ever heard.)
-What is and what should never be
-Babe I'm gonna leave you
-Dazed & Confused
-The Battle of Evermore
-Black Dog
-Kashmir
-Since I've been loving you
-Immigrant Song
-Thank You

Talking about Led Zeppelin,

it's worth mentioning their excellent self-titled double-dvd release which was released
some years ago.
It contains over 5 hours of restored concert footage from the late 60's to the late 70's.

Superb dvd release... trust me ! [Cool]

Man do I love Led Zepplin. I really don't know if I can name my favorite because it really depends on my mood. Here are some of my go to songs:

Dazed and Confused
Babe I'm Gonna Leave You
Going to California
Stairway (you kind of have to have it on the list)
Hey Hey What Can I Do

Man I could really add all their songs for the most part.

As a teen, I used to be a huge fan of Led Zeppelin back in the late '80's; I was too young to really get into them in their heyday back in the '70's.

I used to have all of their albums on cassette - but for whatever reason never bought any of the CD's back in the day. The cassettes (and my cassette player) are obviously long gone these days, and so last Spring I bought most of their remastered CD's. Wow! The sound quality on these is amazing - it's almost like hearing these albums for the first time. Kudos to Jimmy Page & co. for taking the time to put these together.

I got the single CD in some cases; in others I got the double-CD set. The packaging is stellar here as well. I like how the CD's packaging/artwork tries to replicate the original vinyl albums as much as possible - i.e., having the original artwork, etc. Especially cool are:

- The fold-out showing the "Stairway to Heaven" poster in IV w/the old man holding the lantern.

- The psychedelic kaleidoscope effect on the cover of III re: the little wheel you can turn on the side.

- The several insert(s) that you can take out of the Physical Graffiti album sleeve.

- The fold-out artwork in the Houses of the Holy album.

- The brown paper bag "sleeve" w/In Through the Out Door.

I definitely feel that Presence is probably their most underrated album. Extremely solid rock songs like Achilles Last Stand, For Your Life, Nobody's Fault but mine, Candy Store Rock, Hots on for Nowhere, etc. are all amazing, with some fantastic drum work. Unfortunately, this album has never really gotten a lot (if any) radio play.

Though IV is my favorite album, Physical Graffiti is a close second. Great double album with amazing tracks, including of course Custard Pie, Trampled under foot, Night Flight, Down by the Seaside, Houses of the Holy, In the Light, and the truly sublime Kashmir. It's worth noting that the actual Houses of the Holy song wasn't on the album of the same name, but instead was on PG. IIRC, Led Zep wanted to put the song on the HOTH album, but there were time/space limitations.

Houses of the Holy is an album that has a very memorable & bizarre cover, some fantastic songs, and at least one weak song (The Crunge).

I recently ordered the 3-CD deluxe version of Coda (2015 remastered); this is the only CD remaster I don't have yet. I wasn't too impressed when I first heard this on cassette years ago since it's basically a collection of B-sides, but the additional 2 CD's in this newer set sold it for me - especially the inclusion of Travelling Riverside Blues (which previously was only available one the LZ boxed set from around 1990 (now long OOP) ). I've always wanted to have a physical copy of this song, and never got the '90 boxed set.

To add to my last post, it's interesting that, obviously, Led Zep were big fans of the JRR Tolkien Lord of the Rings novel trilogy. There are some obvious & not so obvious references to the novels in their songs:

https://everything2.com/title/References+to+Tolkien+in+Led+Zeppelin+songs

Going along with this, it's interesting that the LOTR novels experienced a resurgence of popularity during the hippie era of the late '60's - '70's. This was unusual, since the original The Hobbit novel was published in 1937 - and, the LOTR novels came out between 1954-1955. And, as far as I know, JRR Tolkien had no connection to the hippies or the '60's/'70's counter-culture; he was a WW I veteran & later author/college professor, and died aged 81 in 1973.

However, for various reasons hippies latched onto these novels. Here's another interesting article about this LOTR/Hippie connection. Note the mention of the Led Zep lyrics:

I like everything on disc 1 of Physical Graffiti. When I was in high school everyone claimed to be a Led Zeppelin fan, but only played 2 and 4. When I heard their other stuff I liked them a lot more. They have a lot of variety.
