It is with great shame that I admit this....but it has taken me 25 years to listen to a Led Zeppelin album. For some reason, I thought I didn't/wouldn't like them. Who knows why. After watching that documentary "It Might Get Loud" featuring Jimmy Page, I felt it was getting a bit ridiculous that I hadn't really given them a proper introduction to my musicsoul, who I must say, has now reached a more mature age ever since moving to Chicago. Obviously I had to stay true to my first album theory, so I started at the beginning with their 1969 self-titled debut album.
UM. Harmonica solo in "You Shook Me". "Dazed and Confused". Guitar solo in "Communication Breakdown". "I Can't Quit You Baby". I think I've found out what year my musicsoul was born.
What the hell have I been doing with my life?
"You Shook Me"
"Dazed & Confused"
I also have to include this one - the note at about the 3:07 mark is just insane.
"Since I've Been Loving You"
I know. I am so sorry. Please don't judge me too hard.
Words of advice? Don't knock something until you try it. Music selectivity should be a crime.
(now to find me some of these on vinyl..)
