And she’s buying her stairway to heaven. The most classic of the classic rock genre, non? I’m keeping this album for the sentimental aspect and continual hopes that I’ll be ready when asked to slow dance at the end of the night.
This is a staple to anyone’s record collection. Do I even need to talk about Led Zepplin? Is there anyone that doesn’t know about them?
Here’s a quicky for those, like me that are not rock fans but appreciate the magnitude of their love over several daceades. This album was out out two years before I was born ~in 1971. from wiki:
Led Zeppelin were an English rock band, active in the late 1960s and throughout the 1970s. Formed as the New Yardbirds in 1968, the band consisted of guitarist Jimmy Page, singer Robert Plant, bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones, and drummer John Bonham. They are widely considered to be one of the most successful, innovative and influential rock groups in the history of music.
After changing their name, the band signed a favourable deal with Atlantic Records that allowed them considerable artistic freedom. Led Zeppelin disliked the releasing of tracks as singles, preferring their albums to be viewed as indivisible, whole listening experiences, helping to promote the concept of album-orientated rock. Their first two albums, with their heavy, guitar-driven blues rock sound, led to Led Zeppelin being regularly cited as one of the progenitors of heavy metal and hard rock, even though the band’s individualistic style drew from varied sources and transcends any single music genre. Their next two albums incorporated wider musical influences, particularly from folk music; the fourth, untitled album, which featured the track “Stairway to Heaven“, is among the most popular and influential works in rock music, and it cemented the status of the group as “superstars”.
