    Tangerine and Bring it on home---not sure what your getting at jints  but there's no tune called "led zeppelin" on the first or any Zep album

     

     



    He's trying to be cute. Apparently, if you aren't a big Sabbath fan or never bothered to delve into their material, you don't know about music.

     

     

    Laughable, I know.



    Kind of figured he was baiting ya, but then there were always those dudes when you asked if they were into Led Zeppelin they would say " ya he's pretty cool"...you know...dorks 



    yeah just funning with Russ but now that's it's turned into a more serious discussion I would have to say my all time Zep album is Physical Graffiti...amazing amount of different styles on there, the whole incredible range of their creativity...definitely a desert island disc




    LOL...Sabbath sucks more than Gracie Slick!



    lmao

    Ever see that infamous early 80s tour (I think) that the Starship version were doing at the time, where she's hammered berating the German audience about Hitler and all that?

    Her daughter was cute back in the day.

     



    The Jefferson Airplane was a great band.  Jorma Kaukonen is wildly underrated if you ask me. 

     



    Good player.  Hot Tuna still tours and just blew threw here actually.  Saw him once on a festival tour he was on back in the 90s.



    Saw him with a pedal steel guitar player at a small venue in Manhattan back in the early 90s.  Super show.  

    Getting back to the Airplane, I love Chauffer Blues sung by the chick who preceded Grace Slick.  Don't remember her name, but great voice on that song.

    +1 Surrealistic Pillow is one of my favorite albums



    Yeah, that's a great one.  They're a sixties band I still listen to a lot.  They're dated, but in a way that holds up well because it's everything good about sixties psychedelic rock.

    agree, there was a decent little movie that came out a few years ago called Moonlight Mile (with Dustin Hoffman and Susan Sarandon) great soundtrack featuring Coming Back to Me which I had hadnt heard in years so I revisited the whole album, still sounds good!

    No kidding. Wow, interesting.

    Reid's best tune, IMO, is this one. Killer tune. Pretty a much perfect tune:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pd63GVczu-8

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNltuG7qmUM

    That's the one that turned my head in that Wonderland movie.

    Sounds like a lost CCR tune. Killer chorus.

    I also like Dean (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ccV6xsFPmY), but to be honest, he wasn't a great songwriter, IMO.  Good guitar player, cool voice, though.

     



    Thanks Russ I'll check those out, I'm always  looking for good  classics I've never heard!

    speaking of lost CCR tunes check out Porterville---sorry no link

    It's so overplayed peeps forget what a masterpiece Stairway is. It will be played centuries from now (which kind of boggle the mind). 

    That said I'll take Kashmir and No Quarter.....

    I was at a high school show choir competition last weekend and was completely surprised.  a predominately black school finished their show with Stairway to Heaven.  They started the song with just a girl playing electric guitar and a boy playing cello for some bass.  Obviously, the technique was very simple, but it was entirely pleasing and unexpected to see kids embrace the song and they nailed it both instrumentally and vocally. Awesome performance.

    Heartbreaker, followed immediately by Living Loving Maid

    But really, there are too many good songs to list here...

    "Alimony alimony paying your bills...when your conscience hits you knock it back with pills..."

    Also, Immigrant Song...we used to rush onto the field to that one playing football (soccer) in my teens and 20's.  Still get an adrenaline rush from that song today.

    Did anyone see Heart's trubute to Zeppelin at the Lincoln Center?

    Pretty awesome version of Stairway to Heaven.

    Watch Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page's reactions.  Even Obama gets into it.

    Hope this link is good.

    It's impossible for me to pick out 1 or 2 favorite tunes. I'd have to say my favorite album is III. They really showed their versatility on that one with all the acoustic stuff. Because they could handle many styles, the fact that they were such a remarkably talented pure blues band is often overlooked.

    Side note to Griswold: I can remember in the past you saying that Page was one of the sloppiest guitarists of his era. I disagreed then as I do now. He is one of the greats.

    Live players, yeah. Absolutely, when compared to the blues greats and other lead players in the all time great discussion.  It doesn't mean his style or sound wasn't great. It just means he was sort of sloppy as a live player.

    Agree on III and unable to pick 1 or 2 songs with a band like that.




    Fair enough. I never got to see them live so I can't say first hand. Was on my way to The Garden to by tickets in Jan. 1976 when we heard on the radio about a riot breaking out. When we got to Causeway St. it was chaos. Sat and watched for a few minutes but when we saw a couple of people pick up one of those 55 gallon traffic barrels (remember those?) and smash the windshield of a parked police cruiser we were outta there. Wanted no part of that bad scene. After that they never came back to Boston. Who could blame them?
