It's actually my least favorite, but ranking these songs is like having to choose which child you would rank over another. Even at my least favorite, this song is still about a 13 on a 10 scale.


:D

So, side 1 or side 2...?

Side 1 by a microscopic whisker.

But, kids, this is their finest moment. It's the greatest. Full stop. End of. Luxuriate in its brilliance.

And a masterpiece of arrangement and production.

Pete, did any of the very few times they did this live on the PG tour make it onto a bootleg?

And, I'll say it again - Robert is a monolithic harmonica player. Just godly.

Yeah there's one from Chicago in 75. It didn't really work. Weirdly enough.

The best track on the album - awesome!

For me, almost Led Zep's finest moments (LZII has a couple I rate higher)

This may be the greatest single production job ever.

It is fucking monumental. Jimmy take a bow.

And a few strategically suspended/placed microphones. Didn't they put one or two in a cupboard somewhere in Headley Grange just to get some ambient sound?

For me, this song reduces LZ II to just a really good blues-inspired hard rock album. This song is the pinnacle of recorded rock and roll.
