Perhaps 8" but no more






Go the lad on keyboards!

So atmospheric and ethereal

I know "Thank You" is often dismissed as a bit trite but I just adore it. Beautiful melody.

C wrote:Yes, II remains my favourite Led Zep album

I recall hearing it for the first time in the autumn of 1969.

I had already seen them once - late 1968 (November I think) but when I heard II it just absolutely blew me away.

I recall as a 16 year old proudly carrying the album under my arm around school.

oooooof!

Bonzo's bass drum work was always very special

And here we go. Balls out rock’n’roll. I had a sweet little heartbreaker of my own.

We’ve grown old together.

Bonzo drags so far behind the beat....really adds to that 'sludgey' feel.

I recall that solo guiatr break was used by a Radio 1 DJ back near the day.

Tommy Vance for his Friday show.

DD?

You know the moment when. Heartbreaker sequels into Livin’ Lovin’ Maid? One of the great moments in rock.
