Creem – America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine, Reviewed Issue By Issue – July 1977 (Volume 9, Number 2)
the last of an era of cock rockers
a hellishly powerful thing
It could be the silver lining of this pandemic
the queen of these three past years
Was this list really worth the effort?
It’s all about staying in a safe place, on a safe subject
“Jimmy went crazy, he really wanted to do it
“45 years ago Jimmy Page and Robert Plant wrote some of the greatest songs in rock’n’roll history – half a century later they’re being sued for it.”
Those Led Zep boys must be regretting streaming as we very speak, with these two decades old albums, and not even fan favorites,and with a deluxe version that isn’t so ‘luxe at all -especially Presence, which has nothing much going on, still entering the Top 10, Also, not crazy about the Maccabees but I’ve seen a lot worse at # 1
The Hook (All My Love) (Rough Mix) – Led Zeppelin – From the Zep’s last, pussy, album, this is all very Robert Plant’s Americana version of Zep, and very pretty, the brass solo is especially lovely and Jimmy is much more than brute force here, almost, dare we say it, delicate – B+
this guy has recorded with about everybody in the music business, from The Rolling Stones to the Who, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, the Eagles, The Beatles, the Kinks, the Clash,… basically there is a great chance that the classic song stuck in your head right now, was recorded by Glyn.
I’d love to see Page bring out the Zep catalog on stage one more time but he has a huge problem, who do you get to play Page? Adam Lambert? Eddie Vedder (right attitude, wrong key). Anyway, buy tickets for the November 3rd conversation at the 92nd Street Y here.
Honest to god why these old timers want to ruin their cool images but hitting the stage again is beyond me. You cannot be the band you were at 20 when you’re 60 but this Peter Pan ideal is hanging tough. Just like ‘super’ models rock bands have a shelf life. I don’t know about you but i don’t want a “Whole Lot of Love” from those guys
Better Led Zep’s first three albums than all those damn Bro boys, right? And much better Miranda Lambert, who, should stop dressing like Bozo if Bozo was a honky tonk hooker, than any Bro including Eric Church. Between the four of em you’ve got a solid album charts for a change.
The Led Zeppelin remasters-deluxe editions feel like they are a little too late however great they might be; the thing is we are in the post making money through records period and while these will sell, imagine how it would have sold in 1994.
“Love Train,” The O’Jays. Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, the kings of the Philly soul sound, wrote and produced this #1 hit. The O’Jays formed in the late 1950s, but had no success until 1972, when Gamble and Huff produced “Back Stabbers” for the group. The O’Jays smartly stayed with G&H for the rest of the decade. For the love of money, if nothing else.
Robert Plant is saying there will be no reunion so there you have it– and thank God. Let the legends remain pristine the last thing we need is to see Plant with a sock in his Depends singin’ “Whole Lotta Love”..ew.
Led Zeppelin and Spirit played together in Detroit, Atlanta, and Seattle, and Zeppelin were even Spirit’s opening act at the Denver auditorium Arena in 1968. ‘Taurus’ was ‘such a pretty moment, and it would typically come after a big forceful number and always got a good response,
“I was pretty diligent with my detection work,” he says. “I didn’t want to put together a compilation where ninety percent of it had been bootlegged.”
t hearing news of Led Zeppelin releasing their first three LP’s again and this teaser video just reinforce the fact that yes, they were sexy beasts and yeah that was 40 years ago. But the patchouli wearing wanna be’s rejoice and you old timers can live in days past.
Let’s face it the odds of something we have NEVER heard before after decades just seems unreal- unless of course its songs we know with voice over or other out take, which is possible I suppose.
Anything Could Happen – Ellie Goulding – This is a big song for Ellie, completely addictive with those “wee wee wees” playing in the back of your head long after its over and a chorus of Ellie’s bringing it back home. Huge in the UK – A
So altogether, I wasn’t thrilled by the band but listening to Zep 1 – 4 plus Houses Of The Holy and the incredible Physical Graffiti, I must admit I think punk has something to answer for, while it is true that all six albums dropped pre punk still it was punk that made them obsolote with one amphetemine sneer from Johnny Rotten’s lips.
I am not exactly sure because you can nevertheless find parts of their respective catalogs when doing a search on Spotify. I wonder how long anybody will be able to resist. With the new free radio service, it’s now a matter of time till Spotify crushes Pandora
At the moment you can stream just about everything Pink Floyd have ever released though the Led Zep availability is still in its infancy, only the first four albums are up and, oddly enough, with “Immigrant Song”, “Since I’ve Been Loving You”, “Black Dog”, “Immigrant Song”, “Stairway To Heaven”, and “Misty Mountain Hop” missing.
