I love Going To CA.  Brilliant.  I'm not bored by genius.   wink.gif  biggrin.gif

No, but you're excited by meandering fluff. wink.gif  laugh.gif

Hey, no one mentioned Carouselambra.   wink.gif

Was in the gym today and had Zep on shuffle. When The Levee Breaks was followed by Carouselambra.


Never let the keyboard player at the controls when the guitarist is strung out.....

I am the Only one that shows Love for that song confused13.gif JPJ fpr M.V.P. biggrin.gif

I gotta say the keyboard during the first half of Carouselambra is obnoxious.

Great album, but not my fave.  I'll give that to Physical Graffiti.  Battle Of Evermore mars it a bit for me.  Not a fan of the mandolin.  Still, it's a standard -  bearer from the early '70's.  My musical interests seen to start around the brink of 1970 ( 1st era of heavier bands), so, yeah, this is one of the early examples I use as a yardstick to measure against.

^^^I agree Treeduck. When some people claim it's their 5th or 6th best album because it's so overplayed, that just doesnt make any sense to me.

Yeah those people need to think back to what they thought of it the first time they heard it. Instead of saying oh well now that I've heard it 17 zillion times on the radio I hate it. They also need to learn how to use the tuning dial...

One time when I was doing my radio show, I played the first few seconds of Stairway to Heaven, then I turned it off and went on the air and said "just kidding."  That was my nod to the song being hideously overplayed for decades, and that it certainly didn't need to be played again, even at my itty bitty little station.

Just because the song has been overplayed to death doesn't mean it isn't still a brilliant song, and the album is still brilliant whether you've heard it 1 time or 1 zillion.

The only time I ever hear 'Stairway' is whenever I listen to the entire album and it's a magical ride of sheer perfection whose power to amaze and delight remains undiminished. It's still quite an adrenalin rush and my personal favorite Zep song from what I would consider their best album.

'Carouselambra' is fantastic too btw.
