A powerful bluesrock album that came out of nowhere, from the ashes of the Yardbirds who had disbanded the year before ...
In August 1968, the English rock band had completely disbanded. Guitarist Jimmy Page, The Yardbirds sole remaining member, was left with rights to the group s name and contractual obligations for a series of concerts in Scandinavia. For his new band, Page recruited bassist John Paul Jones, vocalist Robert Plant and drummer John Bonham. During September 1968, the group toured Scandinavia as The New Yardbirds, performing some old Yardbirds material as well as new songs such as Communication Breakdown , I Can t Quit You Baby , You Shook Me , Babe I m Gonna Leave You and How Many More Times . The month after they returned to England, October 1968, Page changed the band s name to Led Zeppelin, and the group entered Olympic Studios in London to record this debut album.
Led Zeppelin had a fully formed, distinctive sound from the outset, as this eponymous debut illustrates. Taking the heavy, distorted electric blues of Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, and Cream to an extreme, Zeppelin created a majestic, powerful brand of guitar rock constructed around simple, memorable riffs and lumbering rhythms. But the key to the group s attack was subtlety: it wasn t just an onslaught of guitar noise, it was shaded and textured, filled with alternating dynamics and tempos. As Led Zeppelin proves, the group was capable of such multi-layered music from the start. Although the extended psychedelic blues of Dazed and Confused, You Shook Me, and I Can t Quit You Baby often gather the most attention, the remainder of the album is a better indication of what would come later. Babe I m Gonna Leave You shifts from folky verses to pummeling choruses Good Times Bad Times and How Many More Times have groovy, bluesy shuffles Your Time Is Gonna Come is an anthemic hard rocker Black Mountain Side is pure English folk and Communication Breakdown is a frenzied rocker with a nearly punkish attack. Although the album isn t as varied as some of their later efforts, it nevertheless marked a significant turning point in the evolution of hard rock.
