Today (November 8) is the 48th anniversary of that untitled Led Zeppelin album that fans and everyone else just calls “Zoso” or Led Zeppelin IV. But, really, it wasn’t ever officially titled. Is it their best album? That’s debatable. It certainly has the song that is probably the first thing that jumps in anyone’s mind when they hear the words “Led Zeppelin.” Yeah, it’s predictable but it brings tears to my eyes almost every time I hear it. Especially this version and in front of those who wrote it and with Bonzo’s kid (whom I have met and opened for) on drums. It’s a great thing. Enjoy!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“And as we wind on down the road, our shadows taller than our soul. There walks a lady we all know, who shines white light and wants to show how everything still turns to gold. And if you listen very hard the tune will come to you at last. When all are one and one is all. To be a rock and not to roll.” – “Stairway to Heaven” (Page/Plant)
