I wonder if Sammy Hagar was listening to this when he couldn't drive 55?  I would be willing to bet this was in the tape deck.

Among the very best sub-three-minute songs in the catalog.

^^^ Funny!
 

Not just funny....very untrue and, HAS to be musically impaired, to say such a thing about a band whose music still kicks ass to this day!!! Not to mention, the heap of awards they achieved!!

Lol! What got me chuckling ,was that Bill played the Zep number, then followed it with Time Machine!!! Would love to time machine back to Zep's heyday!!! Fav band if all time! Have had collection twice....1st, all cassettes....then, with modern tech, all CD's!! And, btw, what Plant is doing now with A. Krauss...nearly as good as the Zep of days gone by!!! Good pair up, those 2!!
  Go Bill, GO!!!!
WOW! Three LZ in a row! What a treat. Now I am ready to go for the day.

Among the best two minutes, 30 seconds in rock.

The most overrated? Probably not because they were pretty damn good. Overplayed? YES, YES, YES, totally. I wish there was a Led Zeppelin filter button because I get tired of hitting PSD. 
YES!!!!!{#Dancingbanana_2}
I checked the news just to make sure one of the members of Led Zeppelin didn’t die or something. This is such an anomaly. 2 in a row.

Nice! How can anybody split up these, let alone the entire albumn...right! Back in a bit...going to do just that {#Idea}

Nice double play of Zeppelin!
It's actually illegal in my county (Suffolk) to play this song at less than 85 decibels. Crank that is right!
God I love hearing a couple of Led Zeppelin's in a row. "Getting The Led Out" is what my hometown radio station used to call it. Thanks for playing pure awesomeness, Radio Paradise! Zach
When in doubt....

Hard to believe how hard-wired the urge to crank it on this one is; how satisfying the response, and how rich the gratification. Rock it!
What a great set of music!!!!
 
Seems like a great way to warm things up.

What is that strange sound? It reminds of something that was was once beautiful and exciting and crazy.

Oh yeah...it's called Rock N Roll.

Aha.  So Bill also has trouble deciding on just one Led Zep song to play.
Back to Back! Love it!
Can't get enough Led Zeppelin 
WooHoo!!! Keep it going, Bill!!
whoah... let's make it three-fer!
Two LZ in row! Marry me, Bill!! :-)
2fer.  Thanks RP!! {#Cheers}

From first cut to last, this is merely the very essence of blues-based peel-your-ears-off r and r.  

 
“In their willingness to waste their considerable talent on unworthy material the Zeppelin has produced an album which is sadly reminiscent of
Top Nominee for the Best Howling Throat Scorching Scream in the History of Rock and Roll 
A Led Zeppelin Twofer! 

Awesome!

And I normally don't use the word "Awesome" that often. Usually only when referring to the Grand Canyon or when my wife disrobes in our bedroom. :-)
Good God Man!!  Two in a row??   {#Clap}

Just play the whole album please!
WOOHOO!!  A Led Zeppelin morning!  {#Dancingbanana}
What's happening? Back to Back!!  {#Cheers}
That's the way you do. These three songs need to be heard back to back to back. What a LP. 16 when it was released and hardly left my turntable.
Genius
ROCK AND ROLL!!!!!  Nice set Bill!
Fantastic idea!!

Bill, you should do an weekly "play an entire classic album" along with your commentary on the history and making of the album (who wrote the songs, produced it, engineered, play on, interesting side notes, etc). I think a bunch of listeners would tune in for that.
 


I can't stop my foot from tapping......

I think you need to go back a few years.  Also, the diversity between these Zep songs is incredible!

Bill is too kind to us. Back-to-back-to-back Zep. Yeah man!

Love it, you can play back to back Zepp anytime.  Thank you.
Love the first album.

Helped get me thru puberty. 
Your Time is Gonna Come/Black Mountain Side {#Arrow} Communication Breakdown

Hey, marrdcheez - hope you're enjoying the Zepathon - I know I am! {#Dancingbanana_2}
toofers?

I love it when I have to check to make sure I didn't accidentally change my Internet radio station channel.  It's one thing to be eclectic.  It's entirely another to be unpredictable.  Seems three in a row was enough to GET THE LED OUT!  On to Massive Attack.
 
I'd like to know: How many rock-and-roll songs rhyme "arms" and "charms", and who was the first to do it?
It is 7:55 in London and on a Friday morning Led Zep is what the doctor ordered to get out of the shower!

Led crosses Vast Distances of space and time. Its GOOOOOOOD!

If not for the air-drum induced crick in my neck that I'll attribute to this fine example of Zeppelin'ania - I'd be loving the hell out of this...

Ah, screw the crick — I LOVE IT ANYWAY!!!!

(DAMN THAT HURTS!) {#Drummer}

Woooohoooo, loving this Zeppelin triple play!

 
Only two so far, and so far so tolerable. A third Led Zep and I'm taking a break until it's all over. I don't really like back to back numbers from the same artist, even if it's one I like, as it'll p1ss listeners off and is a bit monotonous. It's the variety and eclecticism of RP that I like - wall-to-wall rock you can get anywhere.

Love the non-stop Zep....{#Bananajam}
TwoferThursday??
Jeez, that's more than 40 years ago and it still sounds really great!
We don´t want no communication breakdown, but this is great, thanks Bill!
Very nice!!
Bill's not much of a Zeppelin fan, is he? {#Angel}
I can't quit you baby!
