Speaks his mind on music & movies!
CB didn’t get into this album for a while (He was expanding his musical direction down other roads). Zeppelin’s first two records were still getting lots of spin time. I had heard a few cuts and finally got around to the record. ‘Immigrant Song’ opens the album and was one of the tunes I had heard. Different from what I was used to but still dug it. Aggressive beat. ‘Friends’ is acoustic and I was liking it. A little haunting. Heavy acoustic. A new style. Plant’s vocals are a little different. The next cut ‘Celebration Day rocks out. Like Page’s work on this one. Good groove. Back to the blues kick on ‘Since I’ve Been Loving You’. Everyone contributes on this one. Reminder of what their music did to me when I first heard them. Could listen to this groove all night. Great tune. Last cut starts out with a Yardbirds sound. It rocks. I was digging this song and this album.
‘Gallows Pole’ opens up side two and sounds like a western. Again a change of pace but it builds into a very cool tune. The next two cuts are a little softer, more acoustic. Page does some nice work on both. A little Zeppelin stomp on ‘Brony-Y-Aur Stomp’. It’s all acoustic but does it move. The boys cook on this one, again Page goes to town. A little country/blues. What were these guys listening too? Loved this tune. The last tune is bare bones blues with some killer slide. Very cool sound.
This album should have been called new directions . I liked it the more I listened to it. Still had the early sound from the first two albums. It would have been ok with CB if they would have stuck with that vibe but I really liked where they were taking the music. Bringing in some acoustic/traditional ideas. Some new styles for me to dive into.
