"Hey, I Think the Recorder's On" is already a 2014 grammy favorite.

recorded 40 years ago - check
band no longer exists - check

Led Zeppelin is alright, but if they did come out with a song titled "Tolkien Sucks", that would have put them in my top10.

This next piece is called "Jimmy Page spent all the money he made from butchering 'Kashmir' with that Snoopy Diddly Man or whatever his name is for that awful Godzilla movie, and we don't want him to license any more songs to Cadillac, so, here we are. TWO! THREE! FOUR!"

"I can't deal with this f*cking psycho anymore. This bloody coont thinks he owns the place. F*ck you!"
"F*ck you man! F*ck you."
"If I could I would take my guitar and shove it so far up your talentless asshole you'd be shiatting wood for a month."
"Gentlemen, please! This is some expensive studio time. Can we please just record this Willie Dixon song?"
"Fine, whatever....what's the name of this f*cking song?"
"You need love."
"OK...ummm...Whole Lotta Love in 3...2..."
"F*ck you man."
"No f*ck you. 3...2...1..."

The thing is, Led Zep burping into the mic is still better than most stuff released in the last 30 years.

I remember that and I was telling my friend about it when it happened. He asked "Whats a Puff Daddy?" and then told me to move because he had just watered that part of his lawn I was standing on

Seems legit. Old fans would probably vote for it because they think it'll get the band back together, even though Robert Plant's said no the last 100 times he's gotten that question.

They hint they might release more unreleased material?  We know they're releasing more material.  We've already got the first three albums being re-issued next month with bonus discs.  I would assume the rest would follow suit.

Presence was awesome.  Achilles Last Stand is in their top 5.  No radio hits on it but that is why it still sounds fresh 37 years later.

"Presence" is to Led Zeppelin what "Never Say Die" is to Black Sabbath. Both records are criminally underrated because they don't sound like either band's early iconic efforts. Just because these later works aren't what put these bands "on the map" doesn't mean they suck.

Zep/Sabbath fans typically listen to those two records only once and then discard them for years because there is no obvious "Black Dog/ Sweet Leaf" on them.

Both records seriously need to get re-investigated. "Achilles Last Stand" "Nobody's Fault but Mine" "Hard Road" "Air Dance" are masterpieces. (the instrumental section on "Air Dance" sounds more like Steely Dan than Sabbath, Odd choice for them but really great sounding nonetheless)

"Never Say Die"' is really quite good up through the third song on side two. After that it swan dives straight into yuckland. I have always enjoyed songs like "Shock Wave" and "Junior's Eyes" from that LP. NSD was certainly more solid than Technical Ecstasy which had maybe three good songs on it.

Presence is my favorite zep album. Have it on vinyl somewhere in my parent's attic.

Add "Animals" by Floyd to that list. Seems every Floyd fan knows Dark Side, The Wall, WYWH and even Ummagimma, but Animals seems to get left out.

I never understood why Jimmy Page didn't do a "Dick's Pick" kind of album like the Grateful Dead did with their archivist.  While a lot of the live setlists repeat night after night because they toured relentlessly; some of those live show's are pure gold.  If he remastered 20+ of them (soundboard quality of course) put 4 out a year - he'd have 5 years of somewhat steady income.  If I recall correctly, Jimmy Page's London flat got robbed of quite a few bootlegs in the 80's - that's how a lot of these were leaked.

I wish Page would stop with the expanding the original albums thing and put out the box sets of live material that he's been talking about since the 90's. Of course, he'd have to spend a year pitch-correcting Plant's vocals but still.

When you look at what Page and Plant did in the 80s (Coverdale-Page, The Firm, The Honeydrippers, their solo work, and "I'minthemoodforamelody, I'minthemoodforamelody, I'minthemood" for five painful minutes) it's safe to say the 1980s LZ that exists in an alternate universe sucked.

Seventhed (or Eighthed if you count jj325 just before me with a "Hell yeah!)

I got the Animals cassette when I was in the 10th grade, 1985. I liked Floyd from what I heard on the radio, but one night, the local station played six Floyd songs in a row on one of their nightly "6-packs". One of the tunes was Pigs (Three Different Ones). I though that song kicked all kinds of ass, so I got the cassette. I was listening to it start to finish for the first time while doing some homework. It got to the middle part of Dogs, where there are dogs literally barking. Our neighbor had a pen of bird dogs he kept for hunting that would practically never shut up. I got up and screamed out the back door for them to STFU, but realized they weren't even in the pens, since they were out on a hunting trip. I was like...

Yeah, I can't really have a problem with any song on Presence.  I'm not saying its the Greatest Album Of All Time (TM)... but its pretty damn complete with no real filler.  Its one of the rare albums I could listen to and not skip a song.  It just kinda works.

I happen to be partial to "Royal Orleans" but maybe that's because I live down here.

/And I think the transvestite story is kind of a Led Zeppelin myth.
