Baby, when you walk that sweet walk
Oh, you walk it good, yes you walk it good
I said, baby, when you talk that sweet talk
It sounds so good, oh, so good.

With a little bit of concentration
And a little bit of helpin' hands, yeah
And a little bit of raving madness
You know, it makes me feel, baby
Both my feet are back on the ground.

And when the rhythm takes me
It feels so good, oh, so good
Baby, if it keeps a-shaking
It will do you good, oh so much good

With a little bit of stop-a-shakin', shakin'
And a little bit of slow right down
And a little bit of sweet con-carne
It makes me feel, makes me feel, yeah
I got my feet on the ground.

Ooh, now, baby, when you move, it makes me, yeah
A-really feel so good, oh, so good
And I'm so glad, so glad, so glad, so glad
And I'm good, oh, so good.

With a little bit of, ooh, ah, concentration
Just a little bit of a-helping hand, yeah
With a little bit of raving madness
It makes me feel, oh, it makes me feel
Like I'm back on the ground, oh, yes, it sure does.

It makes me feel, hey, yeah
Back on the ground.

Saurez! Saurez!
Baby, baby, you back on the ground, yeah.

79 eh!  Holly crap time flies.
Dig the piano on this one
That woke me up!
This has aged well.
The band had about given what they had to give by the time of this album which I loved. I believe Bill is right here, and I love the terminology "sputtering" just because I love playing with the English language and I haven't heard that word used for quite some time. Thank you Bill !! {#Lol}

"I'm Gonna Crawl" is Zep blues at its finest, IMHO. "In The Evening" explodes after an album-opening tension-inducing intro.  And "Hot Dog".....wow, I love cranking up this song, which was alt-country before the genre even existed!

Yup, sooooo good for the ears {#Cheers} 

 
I don't think you're in the minority. The fact that the few cry {#Cry} loudly, does not mean that they constitute a majority.

I also disagree the assertion that Zep's career was sputtering to an end with this album.  Bonzo died and Zep died with him.  It's that simple.  It's to their eternal credit that they didn't try to replace him IMO.

 Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968

Led Zeppelin (1969)Led Zeppelin II (1969)Led Zeppelin III (1970)Led Zeppelin IV (1971)
Above might be early - maybe no better productive era of R n R from any band. The Beatles maybe (if you go in for that sort of thing){#Whistle}
Houses of the Holy (1973)Physical Graffiti (1975)Presence (1976)In Through the Out Door (1979)Coda (1982) 

 
I think this is the album where they did all of their recording sessions in the morning before tea, thus "early."
Nah, great little guitar lead here and that great Zeppelin energy.
I love Zep, but this?
Sounds like something that would show up as a "bonus track" on a re-issue.
D'yer Saurez ?

I still have the album and the brown paper wrapper. I keep all my old albums in plastic sleeves and enjoy playing and hearing them now and then.

Well, except for this album. LZ kind of 'mailed it in' on this one. I did have the great pleasure of seeing LZ twice during my college age days. Quite the experience. But this album? Naaaw - kind of an embarrassment for LZ actually IMHO.

I miss the art of the vinyl record cover art.

This one was released in a plain brown wrapper. It was also released with 4 different scenes on the front cover inside, hence the brown wrapper concealing which scene you were buying. The cover was dark and almost monotone but had a lighter "brushstroke" across it. The inner sleeve was white and almost like a blank page from a childs coloring book. Painting this inner sleeve with a wet brush made colors come to life.
Quite creative I thought. I applaud!  Miss this artistic packaging.

P.S. It's wonderful that I've heard "S2H" 1 billion times and RP plays this one which I've NEVER heard! Woohoo!

Love this album.  Zeppelin had pretty much run the course of their rock style by the late 70s (Presence was a bit dry and not very colorful), and this was a great indication of a new direction that had stellar songwriting, production, and style.  Those Zep fans who dismiss this album probably think Stairway was their best song.

Isn't It "sweet sweet Connie"? Referring to a noted groupie?

A lot of Zep purists hate this album. I am not a purist—yet I owned this record and thoroughly enjoyed all of it. Mostly because it contained none of the mystical, dungeons and dragons claptrap that marred some of their earlier efforts for me. Groovy, funky, and unpretentious—how are these bad things?

Warm sping day here... only thing this is missing in Aurtur Penhallow comming out of WRIF with a "Hey this is Auther P for Penhollow be my name... BABY"... then starting the next tune.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Penhallow
It'll do ya good... Oh so good.

Good, and if it was anyone else, perhaps a higher rating. But it pales in comparison with their legendary early albums that were such a breakthough in style from what was then current.

This one's ok. I always preferred I'm Gonna Crawl and  In The Evening, especially that great beginning. Too bad it's not on RP's list.

                Such a relief from 'Airstream Driver'!

Cannot press this higher than 7, still quite likeable

The "mighty at their worst" is still better than the worstest at their mightiest.

"Dog crap" is the mightiest and worstest way to describe a tune that makes me tap my foot.

...And I'm looking forward to hearing YOUR next album. I hear JPJ says it's going to be awesome!

I couldn't agree more! About the snobbishness or the delicious Mr. Plant. :)
Times are different than 1979-1980. Now a lot of music 10 year olds are into are a bunch of screaming, potty-mouth posers.
I was 10 years old when I bought this record - myself. I can't imagine letting my 10 year old go out and just buy some record that I didn't screen first.
I am a huge Zep fan but this album did nothing for me. They were just going through the motions at this point in their career.

Yeah! I remember hearing "In the Evening" for the first time- at a Laser Zeppelin show at the Vancouver Planetarium. First time I really 'got' Zeppelin, probably because it was so damn loud, like Zeppelin should be...

Great underplayed Zep album....I remember when this came out with different cover versions you were supposed to get wet and swipe for different color effects...

What a great groove! This really brings back high school of the late 80s... when I was a big-haired Zep fanatic. Haven't heard this in years, certainly not on our local, commercial radio stations, where the Zeppelin repertoire consists of two "big hits".

That would be I LUV BRITROCK. Not sure why he'd call it "classic" rock and then rate it a 1. I've always equated classic with excellent.
Not bad at all.....sort of Led Zep meets Jerry Lee Lewis.

Take note of the swipe mark on the album cover. It's meant to be a hint. (from wikipedia): "The original gramophone record of this album featured an unusual gimmick: the album had an outer sleeve which was made to look like a plain brown paper bag, and the LP record sleeve proper featured black and white line artwork which, if washed with a wet brush, would become permanently fully coloured. There were also six different inner sleeves featuring a different pair of photos (one on each side), and the external brown paper sleeve meant that it was impossible for record buyers to tell which sleeve they were getting. (There is actually a code on the spine of the album jacket, which indicated which sleeve it was—this could sometimes be seen while the record was still sealed.) The pictures all depicted the same scene in a bar (in which a man burns a "Dear John" letter), and each photo was taken from the separate point of view of someone who appeared in the other photos."
The Test of Time, Thanks Bill. :cowboy:

You LUV_BRITROCK :ask: but don't like Zep?
I've actually never heard this Zeppelin song before (this is one of their albums that I've never purchased). It's always great to get a nice surprise like this. Great song!
This if the first Led Zepplin album I ever owned! I loved it and it turned me on to Zepplin. My uncle who was a DJ for years told me when I was around 15 that I'd like Led Zepplin one day. Within a couple years I had several albums. He was soooo right! They hadn't produced an album in years but their music turned me on in 1990. Truly a timeless band.

This is "eclectic rock radio" that includes "classic rock". Maybe you should be streaming a "Britrock" station?
That's a nice cover. Mine has a brown paper wrapper.

Ya know, if classic rock radio would play less of the repetitive 12 song dreck, and more of this.... well "classic rock" I'd probably listen.
One the first Zep songs I ever heard. I still love it.
Yes! Isn't it great to hear your upload played?! :cheesygrin: I obviously missed it the first time around. As I said in the song info, I love the way John Paul Jones's piano locks in with Bonham's drums to drive this song forward.
