1970-1974 was some kinda peak for sure. 

(Also 1968-9. 1975-79)

I remember that wonderful III thinkpiece of yours! I don't know if it's my favourite album (it is, then it isn't, etc), but as a whole package it can't be topped. Like, it's more their "Rubber Soul " than their "Revolver ," yet comes in a gatefold sleeve that actually revolves! Create your own cover, do what thou wilt yoko-ono_01  

Exactly. john-lennon-salute_gif

Yes, my favourite Zepp albums are usually between I and VIII. a-hard-days-night-john-6

Seriously though, probably III or HOTH most days, though II and Physical Graffiti have really been rolling my wheels lately.

I have to say, much as I treasure the documentation of Earl's Court on the DVD, the live feed footage is really frustrating - all fast alternating closeups or one- or two-shots, and shots of the full band are all but nonexistent  🙁

Hmm, I haven't seen it. Based on my experience, though, they usually don't exactly shoot concerts to cater to us rock nerd/musician types. I mean, Plant's trousers are great and all, but sometimes we wanna know what Jonesy's doing too, y'know? ahdn_paul_01

Yeah, tbf I have no idea what kind of constraints the camera operators or crew had to deal with. Huge video monitors and live coverage of concerts was in its infancy, or toddlerhood.

Ed O'Brien of Radiohead recently said on yourube he wanted to meet Page and Plant and ask them if they felt the same songwriting inspiration he felt in that same Welsh valley.  Very Bron Y Aur Stompy apparently.

Apologies if this has already been shown on here,but I saw this video yesterday and thought it was worthy of a mention. It's Robert Plant reacting to a girl drumming along to Good Times Bad Times. The girl is only 8 years old. Amazing,enjoy:

This song is a real 'banger', if you know what I mean. 

In all honestly this is probably my favorite Led Zeppelin song, tied with "The Rain Song".

Pretty new to this forum.

When the Levee Breaks is one of the banging-est bangers in rock history. Drums for the ages. john-lennon-salute_gif

The Rain Song will forever be in my top 3. Right now I think Ten Years Gone is my favorite. I have to limit it to 3, though, otherwise I'd just be naming most of their songs a-hard-days-night-john-6

Can we appreciate how amazingly-haunting "No Quarter" is? It's quite the oddball for most casual listener, but I am yet to encounter a frequent Led Zeppelin listener who does not treat this song in high regard.

PLEASE let's do. I absolutely adore this song, and have ever since I first heard it. It's almost Floydesque at times but the subject matter, guitar and drums are unmistakably 100% Zeppelin. I put it in a similar class to Because in that it seems to be a genre one-off, for the band and for all time. You can't really pin it down and that's why it's so intriguing. I could write a novel about the poetry of the lyrics but I'll stop now a-hard-days-night-george-9

The guitar riff on 'No Quarter' is so satisfying. I love the fuzz and how well it fits into the song. 

I think my top 3 for Zeppelin would have to be 'Stairway To Heaven' (obviously), 'Ten Years Gone' and 'The Rain Song', so I'm pretty similar to you guys. 'Going To California', 'Over The Hills And Far Away' and 'When The Levee Breaks' are up there too, of course.

It's so fuzzy and thicc and deliciously locked into the song that, this one time I listened to it in the dark nice and loud, it melted my brain. a-hard-days-night-paul-7
