Perhaps the greatest Rock and Roll album ever created by any group in the golden age of rock (1965-1975), this song fits in with the unique and bluesy tone that has made Led Zeppelin IV the iconic visionary masterpiece of rock music it has become. How many young men (or women) in the east had this yearning during this period and let this music - like sirens dashing sailors onto rocks - beckon them, lead them astray and head to California with an achin in their hearts. What were we achin for? I couldn't say. I only know that the acoustic guitar solo in this track is considered one of the greatest ever written and one whose mastery is the final test for those who attend the school of rock guitar.
