If you post a critical reanalysis of The Honeydrippers, I swear I'll pull the plug.

It sounds like a typical (of the era) Desmond Child pop-metal hit. In fact, I'm going to look it up. One minute.

ahahahhaa

Poison Child, Cooper, McCurry

By the way, I hope Desmond Child is a rich man. He deserves it after making or maintaining the careers of so many of that era's rockers.

Pull the plug then -- I loved "Sea of Love" and "Good Rockin Tonight". In fact, those were the first versions of those songs I heard. Nostalgia it may be but I loves me some Honeydrippers.

BUT, and I hope I wont be slaughtered for that, I would say that Stairway to Heaven is the really weak song on it, too slow, too medieval, I dont think it up to the quality of the other songs.


no way!
that song is fucking tops!
i think i'm lucky over in sunny england in that i never hear it on the radio - though perhaps thats because i never listen to the radio - but there's been no overkill for me.
too medieval? how can that be a bad thing?!
the way the song builds and builds is just majestic. there's so much going on in the song it makes my head spin.
there's a really quiet keyboard part in there somewhere (gar! cant remember which section) thats just gorgeous - worth the price of admission alone!
the one thing about Zep 4 is that i wish it had been a double album - if one zep album deserved to be a double album it was this and not physical grafitti.

When I was in high school Zep's I-V, Floyd's "Dark Side", "Who's Next" and Allman's "Fillmore East" were required listening. We all had'em we all wore'em out. Think slightly earlier than the movie "Dazed and Confused" that's us! Yeah, I'm OLD! Elton John, Bowie, T-Rex that was considered "girl's music" back then. We all listened to it secretly though.


Hey, I'm old too, but Led Zep was dinosaur music in 1977, you could not possibly be seen to listen to these dying monsters.


I was also part of that year zero crew but luckily for me had grown up listening to the zep albums through my elder brother's bedroom door! He was a Zep freak and so the contents of Zeps first four albums in particular are emblazoned in my mind. Good thing too - I love Zep very much. Led Zep III is spotless.

John Paul Jones impresses me no end -what an incredible musician. On the LZ DVD, the 75 Earls court show - he is outstanding, flipping effortlessly from mandolin to upright bass to keyboard to electric bass. And all played with seemingly effortless skill. The cameraman obviously thinks Page is the only soloist - during the acoustic section which Jones carries with his lyrical mandolin playing, the camera is fixed on Jimmy Page who was playing the acoustic rythm guitar. We get the odd few seconds of Jones. Ridiculous!! So were some of his haircuts!!

Unless you were 8 and you had no idea what uncool was.... Laughing


Exactly. Let us all remain 8 and have no idea of what cool is. Cause that's what cool is.


Cool! Smile

Odd as it may seem in 1972, in my school ,the Beatles were considered no longer cool. Elvis , at that time , was the ultimate dinosaur.All those records I listed in my earlier post were still nearly new. FM radio still had not totally infiltrated to the mass consumer level. You had to be somewhat of an "audiophile" to even have FM. The AOR format was still years away.We listened to hard rock on the FM college radio stations, and our parents hated the sheer loudness of it. As I recall, there was maybe the rare hard rock single on the AM top 40 charts back then. Hard to believe Zeppelin/The Who were ever considered so scary at one time.
