Robert Plant - Lead Vocals
Robert Plant has a great range in his singing. Before Led Zeppelin he sung in many bands in England.
Jimmy Page - Lead Guitar
Jimmy Page is a great guitar player and songwriter. Before Led Zeppelin he was an in-studio guitarist and was co-lead guitar in the Yardbirds with Jeff Beck. He started Led Zeppelin under the original title of the New Yardbirds when he had to find musicians to play an important gig.
John Paul Jones - Bass Guitar and Keyboards
John Paul Jones is a great bassist and pianist who doesn't stand out in most songs, but he is great at backing up the band. Before Led Zeppelin, he toured as sometimes a bassist and sometimes a pianist.
John "Bonzo" Bonham - Drums and other Percussion
Bonzo is one of the, if not the greatest Rock drummer of all time. He can keep time and also add in great fills. Before Led Zeppelin he played in England in clubs with one of Robert Plant's bands. He was so loud that he would not be allowed in some clubs. Also, he would hit his bass drum so hard that the head would break.
Co-Producers: Peter Grant and Jimmy Page
Led Zeppelin had many fans who were mostly teenagers. Adults namely the press hated Led Zeppelin. There description of Zep's music was that of the devil. Zep wanted to write their third album with some harder songs and some acoustic songs, so that it would appeal to their fans and also people that didn't like the first two albums. The press hated their loud and psychadelic music, but they also hated their acoustic music because it wasn't like Zeppelin. (This later led Page and Plant to writing Stairway to Heaven the song that starts off very soft and nice to hard rock).
1. Immigrant Song
This song is one of the more well known Led Zeppelin songs. The main riff has Plant belting out his line.
The first acoustic song on the CD has Bonham playing bongos along with the guitar and bass. The song is for the most part good, but it can be slow moving at times.
3. Celebration Day
This song has a good bluesy riff to it like many Zeppelin songs. This song is great.
4. Since I've Been Loving You
This is my favorite song on the CD. It is a slow blues rock song with great powerful vocals. The guitar and organ line in the song give the song a very good sound along with the drums.
5. Out on the Tiles
This song isn't that great, but it has a very great chorus to it.
6. Gallows Pole
This is the second acoustic song on the CD. It is not that great of a song, but it has a nice sound with the acoustic guitar.
This the next acoustic song on the CD. This is a great song. It sounds as if there is some country influences in this song.
8. That's the Way
That's the Way is another acoustic song and it is a great song. It is my second favorite on the CD. It also appears on the Almost Famous Soundtrack. The vocals in the song are amazing.
9. Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
This song is another acoustic song and has some folk influences in it. It is an okay song, but is very slow moving.
10. Hats off to (Roy) Harper
I really don't understand this song at all. I don't really like sound of it.
I'll give this album a 4.3/5.
It is very good except for the occasional song or two. I reccomend it if you like Classic Rock or any Acoustic type music. You can never go wrong with Zeppelin.
