Is that engraved on the inner lip of your LZIII LP?

That is an example of why it's enjoyable to do these sorts of threads. Everyone listens for and picks out certain things when they listen. I can't say I paid very much attention to the bassline. Sometimes I do, sometimes not. I'll have to relisten.

I gotta say, this Zep boxset was issued in 1993 and sounds incredible. Remember the days when you could actually turn up the volume on your home stereo and it sounded even better? That's this box.

Led Zep III wasn't really as influenced by Pages Crowley fascinations as much as what was to come would be.

Is that the one with all the Japanese mini-lps including all the alternative sleeves?

I've got that box.

It's a must for any Zep enthusiast.

Ok, I meant to play one song but am now playing Zep III in it's entirety. A few things I had wanted to mention earlier but didn't...Does anyone else feel the drums on "Since I've Been Loving You" could or should have been a little softer early on in the song allowing it to build a little more? They just seem too loud for the song.

Also, I don't think it's a great song, just OK, but the ending part on "Tiles" is pretty cool, that riff.

@Spiritual Architect: "And to Make Topper feel better, I would give Fireball, Who Do We Think We Are and Stormbringer 2 stars too."

Except that I (relatively) liked "Fireball", LOL. I haven't heard "Stormbringer" yet.

I just realized the track listing for the box on Amazon is incomplete. My "Coda" contains 4 bonus tracks, "Baby Come on Home", "Travelling Riverside Blues", "White Summer/Black Mountain Side" and "Hey Hey What Can I Do".

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 4, 2013 12:41:28 PM PST
I always thought "Travelling Riverside Blues" would have been a much better track than "The Lemon Song".

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 4, 2013 12:42:49 PM PST
I think it's a great song, but then again, I'm not a blues enthusiast, so I can't say how well it works with the traditional context. I don't think the drums are too loud myself, but they were certainly miked really really close. Either that, or Bonham didn't believe in oiling his kick pedal.

That Bonham hey?

Allways was a bit of a tub thumper.

When it was time to let rip, all shackles were released and he couldn't help himself.

He lets rip.

Vale Bonzo.

Agreed.

Great discoveries, hey?

I really like "White Summer/Black Mountain Side" although it does go on.

Posted on Jan 4, 2013 12:47:19 PM PST
OTOH, while "Fireball" is my favorite DP MK II album, it's still not as good IMO as *any* of LZ's albums, even "Presence" and "Out Door" (OK, it might be on a par with "Presence"). And I already had my umbrella up for the "Reviews From A Hater" thread so I'm used to it. ;)

@Buck Buckaw: The Yardbirds' version of "White Summer" is the definitive one, IMO. Very beautiful, and one of the few worthy cuts on their only studio album cut with Page, 1967's "Little Games" (a few others I like on the album include the trippy "Glimpses" and folky "Only The Black Rose". "Tinker Tailor" also features some nice bowed guitar work). As for the rest, blame Mickie Most for thinking the mighty Yardbirds were supposed to be a pop group. This is what that group were actually capable of:

Is that before DP? Can they take credit for that style in any way?

As usual I'm going to be in the minority but, I love Led Zeppelin 1 because of all the blues songs. I love blues played by hard rock guitarists like Jimmy Page, Gary Moore, Michael Schenker, Jimi Hendrix, Tony Iommi etc. more than actual blues guitarists. Zep III is not one of my favorite Zep albums cuz I like the rockers more than the acoustic/slow songs. Since Ive Been Loving You is the best song on the album and in my Top 10 Zep songs. I love Lemon Song and Bring It On Home on Zep II. Here's how I rate Zep albums-
1. Physical Graffiti-A
2. IV-A
3. I-A
4. II-A-
5. Presence-A-
6. Houses Of The Holy-C
7. III-C
8. In Thru The Outdoor-F

@McNary: "I love blues played by hard rock guitarists like Jimmy Page, Gary Moore, Michael Schenker, Jimi Hendrix, Tony Iommi etc. more than actual blues guitarists."

I agree with you here, even if I disagree about "III" and "Houses" (although your ratings make perfect sense given your dislike of the slow/acoustic numbers).

I'm with ya on the debut, McNary. I got turned on to Zep by my older brothers mainly through the Song Remains the Same movie and soundtrack album, but when I went out on my own and bought the back catalog, the debut was the one that first blew me away start to finish. I think that and Physical are my two favorites to this day and in fact I'd rate Zep I even ahead of IV.

1. Phys Graf - A+
2. Debut - A+
3. Zep II - A-
4. Zep IV - B+
5. Houses - B+
6. Presence - B
7. III / In Thru (tie) - C
