"Physical Graffiti" -- the first time I heard this

It was 1986 or 7

I was at a boarding school in South Lake Tahoe, CA

I was exploring music, as was everyone

Some folk took a punk direction

Some took a metal direction

I took a deep rock direction

I learned to love Led Zep, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Yes, The Stones, and Black Sabbath

Not to mention some other great bands I was exposed to

But our cook gave me this 90 minute cassette, that had all of Led Zeppelin's "Physical Graffiti" on it

The song that really grabbed me was "The Rover"

Mein GOTT! This was true blending of metal, jazz, rock and blues

As I rode the Greyhound back to the Bay Area, this album, plus the ganja I had smoked before the ride, drove me home

1. I love that one. Page and Plant kicked off their show with The Wanton Song at The Columbia

Gorge amphitheater in '95. I loved that! I wasn't surprised. They played that on one of the late night shows before we saw them. We had 9th row center seats for that. Best concert I ever saw.

3. Great album.

Like most LZ albums, I bought it the day it hit the record stores, and still have it and listen to it.

Here's a unique cover of one of the cuts, I think you will enjoy this:
