Product Description

Product Description

1970's unexpectedly acoustic-oriented Led Zeppelin III is the sleeper in the band's catalog, and remains many a fan's favorite. Includes Tangerine; That's the Way; Immigrant Song; Since I've Been Loving You; Gallows Pole , and more.

Amazon.ca

After plundering the Yardbirds' legacy and Willie Dixon (among others) for their blues-riff-heavy first two albums, Jimmy Page and company surprised many listeners with the strong acoustic/folk sensibility displayed on III. Page aficionados shouldn't have been caught off guard; the guitarist had toyed with similar sensibilities and modalities during his brief tenure with the Yardbirds (most notably "White Summer" from the Little Games album). Ever the creative thieves, Zep kick off the album by nicking the riff from "Bali Ha'i" no less, with Robert Plant wailing it to punctuate the thundering FM warhorse "Immigrant Song." Even other electric rockers like "Celebration Day" and "Out on the Tiles" have an inventive, offbeat musicality to them that suggest the band was already wary of stereotyping. But it's the decidedly mellower acoustic groove of the album's latter half that's the news here, from the graceful beauty of "That's the Way" and "Tangerine" to the raw, folksy charm of "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp," "Hats Off (to Roy Harper)," and the traditional "Gallows Pole." --Jerry McCulley

I have all of Led Zeppelin's studio recordings and each has been my favorite at some time or another. Even though it is critized by many and often regarded as one of Zeppelin's weaker albums, Led Zeppelin III to me is actually one of there strongest. These negative reviews come mainly because of the bands accoustic leanings at the time, but that is really not a bad thing, since the albums still has it's fair share of rockers, and some of their best rockers ever, like "The Immigrant Song" and "Out On The Tiles". And not to mention, this album contains one of the best and most powerful tracks ever recorded in "Since I've Been Loving You". This is the true gem on this album. Never has Robert Plant sang with such passion as he did on this track. In fact, it is this album in which I feel Plant shines the most. His voice is in peak performance, and really adds depth to the songs, especially the more accoustic ones. Listen to "Tangerine" for example, and I think you will see what I mean. Overall, this album is essential in any music collection, and is a really enjoyable listen. It rocks out on tracks like "Celebration Day", "The Immigrant Song", and "Out on the Tiles". It has accoustic brilliance on tracks like "Gallows Pole", "Tangerine", and "That's the Way". Truly a Zeppelin masterpiece and a must have for any classic rock fan.

For a mix of classic hard rock and blues riffs (the first half of this album), balanced with some lovely acoustic rock (the second half), this collection is unique, and my favourite, in Led Zeppelin's catalogue. Great songs and a sound that's only improving with age. I only wish the III CD cover (or mp3s) gave you a fun album cover (like the vinyl did) to spin 'round.

On their first two albums, Led Zeppelin unleashed a relentless barrage of heavy blues and rockabilly riffs, but Led Zeppelin III provided the band with the necessary room to grow musically. While there are still a handful of metallic rockers, III is built on a folky, acoustic foundation which gives the music extra depth. And even the rockers aren't as straightforward as before: The galloping "Immigrant Song" is powered by Plant's banshee wail, "Celebration Day" turns blues-rock inside out with a warped slide guitar riff, and "Out on the Tiles" lumbers along with a tricky, multi-part riff. Nevertheless, the heart of the album lies on the second side, when the band delve deeply into English folk. "Gallows Pole" updates a traditional tune with a menacing flair, and "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp" is an infectious acoustic romp, while "That's the Way" and "Tangerine" are shimmering songs with graceful country flourishes. The band haven't left the blues behind, but the twisted bottleneck blues of "Hats Off To (Roy) Harper" actually outstrips the epic "Since I've Been Loving You," which is the only time Zeppelin sound a bit set in their ways.

The essential linchpin in Led Zeppelin's discography
Led Zeppelin's third album, unimaginatively titled LED ZEPPELIN III, shows the band in a much different light than the preceding two records. The first two records were constructed around hard-hitting, direct music, with a fairly straightforward sound. LED ZEPPELIN showed the band capable of classic dynamics and very textured music, sowing seeds to come. ZEPPELIN II, though, was a very direct sounding record, much more built on the riffs and acid blues of such contemporaries like Cream, Hendrix, and Jeff Beck. This all led to the general opinion that the band had a fairly limited sound, drawing frequent comparisons to Black Sabbath.
LED ZEPPELIN III, however, blew all such stereotypes out of the water. While this record still has a heavy, metallic sound on a couple of tracks, by and large III is largely an accoustic affair, especially on the last half of the album. Even the hard rockers aren't nearly as straight-forward as the ones found on their first two LPs. The second side shows Zeppelin quite masterfully working in a folk-blues tradition, turning in some wonderful music. The band still plays the blues, but these blues are seen through the prism of III's sound. Instead of building the blues on pummeling riffs they instead focus more on an acoustic foundation, giving the record a rich, warm sound. The only real fault here is that they left off the B-Side "Hey Hey What Can I Do," which fits in perfectly with III and would have been a very strong addition to the album. The very last song, which there's nothing wrong with, I don't much care for, but that's just my personal taste.
After ZEPPELIN III, Zeppelin went on to bigger and better things.

it seems to some people that the less heavy blues based rock tracks ar on a LZ LP, the worse it is. the first half of the album contains some rockers, but this album gets knocks for it's second half being acoustic. this is one of the reasons why this paricular album is underrated in Led Zeppelin terms. but the fact it is underrated has preserved it's beauty. the lone hit contained in this album was Immigrant Song. fast-paced heavy tune, but the norse mythology thing wears on me after a bit. my personal favorite frenetic rockers include Celebration Day and Out on the Tiles. Friends is an interesting acoustic number that is a bit mysterious. Since I've Been Loving You is an awesome lengthy blues song. Gallows Pole is straight up folk, but hard enough to be zeppelin. Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp is a fun, acoustic folky, well.. stomp. Tangerine and That's the Way have to be too of the most beautiful songs in the Led Zeppelin catalogue, and probably a couple of the most beautiful i've ever heard. Tangerine reminds me a bit of the Rolling Stones song Wild Horses that would come out a year later. when i hear That's the Way, i feel as though i'm in another world. a slightly psychadelic aura to that song. the closing Hats off to Roy Harper, is a retitled, bizzarly arranged traditional blus number. Page's guitar coming out of one speaker while Plant's distorted voice is coming out of the other. on the first initial listen to this song you may think "What the f**k is this?" but in this album, it works.
