Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 31 July 2006
I was and still am a fan of Led Zeppelin's music. Over the years, the story behind these times for the band have been published and it seems that the touring, drink/drugs (Nobody's Fault But Mine) and sheer loneliness (Tea For One) had really got to them. This, coupled with Robert Plant's broken leg/ankle effectively backed them into a corner. The result was this album.

At the time, I didn't care much for the "screaming" production of the original (UK) LP ("presence" indeed in HiFi speak...), but the years and the release on CD have seen this body of work mature almost out of all recognition.

Not an album to listen to casually (not much of their work is, to be fair). The more you put in, the more enjoyment you'll get in return.

I'm wondering also whether the "pared to the bone", harder style in this collection of tracks would have been a template for the eighties? Sadly, we'll never know...

A worthwhile buy, with some treasures contained within...
