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.
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

Then one of the funniest song I've ever heard 'Bron-y-aur stomp'. It's kind of an old style dancing country folk song. Watch your feet stomping and and shoulders swinging! The album closes with the gem of this album 'Hats off to Roy Harper'. It's actually an old blues song called 'Shake 'em on down', which was played by delta bluesmen like Bukka White. On the left side of the stereo, you hear Jimmy Page pounding the blues like crazy on his acoustic and on the right side, man, what an out-of-this-world vocal performance.Cool vibrato effect! 'Give my baby , a 20 dollar bill, if that don't gets her I'm sure my shot-shot-shotgun will, yeah...' Plant really shows his power and his feel on this one. Amazing.
Well, on this record, Jimmy Page, John Bonham, John Paul Jones and Robert Plant deliver diversity, passion, musicianship, pure talent and , of course, fantastic memorable songs. GREAT!

Bought this for my Dad for Christmas and he was very happy with it. Only a few scratches but that is expected for an original pressing. Happy with it.Published on Jan. 27 2014 by KTH
