Fairport's Dave Pegg and Swarb would be proud of Jimmy's mandolin.

[and Rory - of course]

They surely are. I never understood why this track seems to get a bit of flak.


I've always loved it to pieces. Sounded otherworldly and gorgeous from the first listen.

MMH is the only song on here that I'd rate as just a hair behind the rest. It is absolutely astonishing that this album has the track listing it does. This would be a killer greatest hits album from a decades-long career for any other band. For Zep, just the next batch of songs.

I think so, I remember reading him saying that there was just one sitting around the studio and he grabbed it and those chords came out almost immediately.

Y'know... I don't much care what the perceived wisdom is these days... "Stairway..." is still a monster song.

Stairway. It's perfect. Above criticism, really. That it's so good it got played to death is not its' fault.

And Robert may not like the lyrics...but he must be proud of his vocal. Frighteningly good.
