This review is from: Led Zeppelin III (Audio CD)
Sure it's supposed to be an "acoustic" album and "soft" but it actually is a super, well rounded affair. You get rockin' tunes ("Immigrant Song", "Out On The Tiles", "Celebration Day"), funky folk ("Bron Yr Aur Stomp", "Gallows Pole"), some kickin' blues or blues influenced tracks ("Since I've Been Loving You", "Hats Off To (Roy) Harper" which is "Shake 'Em On Down"), and a super ballad in "Tangerine". I & II are great but I think there's an earthiness and subtlety here that are missing from their first two efforts. IV/ZOSO is overrated because of 3 songs, and the later albums are by and large pretty damn good. But I'd say this is the most diverse album, and apart from metal heads' perspectives, their most accessible. I love Spinal Tap but sometimes you don't need to go to 11 to totally rock out... Led Zeppelin III proves it. Enjoy!

There is no Hey Hey What Can I do!!! Why isn't this song on the new deluxe edition??? It was the flip side of the immigrant song on my 45.

Absolutely. I expected to find it on the track listing but it's not.
What's going on with that?
