Lyin', cheatin', hurtin, that's all you seem to do.
Messin' around with every guy in town,
Puttin' me down for thinkin' of someone new.
Always the same, playin' your game,
Drive me insane, trouble is gonna come to you,
One of these days and it won't be long,
You'll look for me but baby, I'll be gone.
This is all I gotta say to you woman:

*Your Time Is Gonna Come X4

Made up my mind to break you this time,
Won't be so fine, it's my turn to cry.
Do want you want, I won't take the brunt.
It's fadin' away, can't feel you anymore.
Don't care what you say 'cause I'm goin' away to stay,
Gonna make you pay for that great big hole in my heart.
People talkin' all around,
Watch out woman, no longer
Is the joke gonna be on my heart.
You been bad to me woman,
But it's coming back home to you.

* Chorus

Miserable spiteful bastard. She was well rid of you, Page.
Spirit called. They want Stairway to Heaven back.
John Paul Jones was truly underrated yet he is a phenomenal studio musician.  I remember, I never heard of Led Zep.  Was probably '74 went to buy an album with my allowance and I already owned all the Alice Cooper I could find and I noticed  Led Zeppelin ll ... OMG when I put it on my turntable...  influenced me ever since...  
Nice 2 Zeppers in a row.  Kicking off the morning here in the Rocky Mountains with my Latte and some Heavy.....
Excellent! I listened to Led Zeppelin 1 a lot in high school!

Who's to say that this artist or that artist was the "O-riginal?"  Amazingly, all contemporary Western music can be traced back to the "Deis Irae," so by your standard, every musician in recorded history is a ripoff artist.  Who's to say that Page didn't first come up with some of the musical themes or phrasing that was then picked up and adapted by the umpteen artists you cite, and then he came back and diddled with them some more?  Were you personally there?  Remember, there's a world of difference between what any of us KNOWS versus what we BELIEVE.

In the end, Led Zeppelin and Page fuckin' delivered the goods better than any of the other musicians you reference did, and that "thewiseking" is the history of why LZ is one of the gold standards.

Of course not, but do you care whether artists are compensated? Or that their work be protected? Let us enjoy Zep music, but let them acknowledge their sources.
I hope my time is gonna come, I love this song.
Bert Jansch. The original Blackwaterside. Jimmy just stole and never gave credit. Great going.

Yes.  Just now had to crank up the monitors, stand in the middle of the room and wait for it...because you don't walk out on a moment like that.

Breaks my heart to have realized it but Page was one of the worst plagiarists of our times. Several egregious examples stand out: Bert Jansch's Black Water Side was ripped off completely when Page did Black Mountain Side and again when his arrangement of The Waggoners Lad was stolen for Brony Aur Stomp. Davey Grahams She Moved Through The Fair was turned into White Summer and Page had the balls to confabulate a story that he "learned Eastern Music styles while backpacking through India" which was precisely how Graham went on to innovate the DADGAD sitar style tuning Page ripped off. Jake Holme's Dazed and Confused was note for note theft. Breeden's lovely arrangement of the folk ballad Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, the Willie Dixon, the Howling Wolf, all of it stolen. It is clear that Page and his lawyers took the "fuck em, let em sue us" approach to doing business. The chickens are coming home to roost. Read this piece and go to the sources.

John Paul Jones is a genius.
I almost skipped because of the intro . But so good rhythm and grove. Never enough
Nice enough but Dread Zepplin's cover blows it out of the water.
Looks like someone requested a song for Ryan Adams
Listening to this a way long ago, my buddy and I singing out loud in the car. Something's not right...I ask my buddy "what are you singin" he looks over and says "Your driving on my fault" I nearly drove off the road in laughter. Good times...

Your defense of Page is admirable, but seems naively defensive.  I'm a Zep fan too, but no one can deny the amount of actionable evidence of "adapting", "borrowing", "stealing" (pick any one!) by Page -- unattributed and uncompensated.
 
Page blames Plant for most of the "thefts" - which makes sense since the lyrics are often the most obvious in these "rip off" scenarios.  This RS article does a great job of sourcing the Blues tunes used by LZ and shining the light on them.  I'm still a fan of LZ's output....maybe it's the Blues roots that makes the "adaptations" palatable to me.  Long Live RP!!

You should ask Bill with a PM or on the RP Forum. As he and/or Rebecca note on the RP front page, that feature is coming. 

Have you tried the FLAC stream on your phone? Pretty wowser.

How did they record Bonham's drumming, was it a special technique?  It's very pure and distinct. 

 Or is it the man (e.g., Keith Moon, Ginger Baker, Ringo Starr)... something in the English water system?

Maybe it's just that the music you hear from "nowadays" is lacking creativity to you, but there are still plenty of creative people making music all over the world.  It may take a little more work to find it though.  I imagine a lot of people in their 40s, 50s, and 60s back in 1969 didn't think that this (or much of rock 'n' roll) was very creative back then.
 Just read the description on the main page! Its coming in february!

Also to the wiseking...read the Rolling Stone transcripts of the court proceedings...the jury was justifiably mesmorized by the stories about how Stairway came together.  Good artists always have all the melodies they have heard at their disposal.
Wish I could rate this one higher.

All right...it's the Foo Fighters!  
This song was always played at my college house as a warning to our one roommate, Crazy Casey, he who shagged nearly anyone.  And we were right to warn him, too late for the diagnosis and the repeated giving of his "gift" to the ladies. We kept a mental list going of which girls to avoid. 
Long live RP and LZ!! 
Oy!!! I was expecting Communication Breakdown next LOL!
Yay, Zep!  This is exactly what I needed right now!

Nah, there are several other occasions where they do that, but I think they also have the titles combined like this pairing does.

This is one of those songs for me. {#Zip-lip}


Does anybody know if this version played by RP is the same as the remastered album? I could be dreaming but the difference is huge to me.

This song is pretty cool.  According to the wiki Jones played the bass line with organ pedals and Page played an out of tune Fender 10 string steal guitar that he had only recently learnt.

Love the big organ intro.

 
Hey that drummers pounding is GODLIKE!!!
Once you start playing this side of this album how can you not just play the whole thing. First of two great LPs in 1969.

...back in the day when we rode our bikes without helmets, dad would let us ride in the back of the pick up truck, we went out and played, ya and even ate dirt (or worms) we were adventurous. Reflected in our music as we grew up - adventurous. Nowadays mom has to drive them to the store in the back of the Lincoln Navigator with their buds plugged in and texting instead of talking. a lot of todays music has no adventure - no one explores anymore - plus we used to pay for our music- now everyone wants the free download. You get what you pay for...

Sigh!  Try as I might I just listen to songs like this objectively. Not only do they take me back to my youth (and hair) but they were so influential in forming my tastes thereafter.  Even ponderous riffs and self-indulgent solos just seem to have just the right amount of ponder and self-indulgence to them.  I probably should stop rating them.

This song is Godlike. And yes I was singing along at the top of my lungs for one specific person today.

What's this, more historical revisionism by the right-wingnut Fox News fans? I doubt some of you have ever read a single, credible political science book, paper, or article, let alone been tested on the subject. Do you also think the Earth is only 6,000 years old because...Bible!?  {#Rolleyes}

Nazism is defined as to the far right of the political spectrum, with fascism (more modern term is corporatism) being the farthest right. There are of course finer variations and offshoots but this is the the basic layout:





OK, now that we're done playing with the crayons, can you guys STFU about this and get on with the music?

this album and the next Zep 2 are my favs...not a bad cut between em!  {#Hearteyes}
I was a college radio DJ when we received a pre-release copy of this album.  White sleeve with a handwritten label.

We played the heck out of of that record.....often the whole first side at a time.

There were so many fantastic albums released in that era.  We assumed it would go on like that forever....

You're fantasizing, Dude. Communism and "National Socialism" are two sides of the same coin. It's all about opportunism, political expediency and the application of power.
Thank you for including Black Mountain Side...
