CD Review

Here are the original monsters of rock in all their epic, bombastic glory. The Who may have had more decibels (a dubious distinction), but no band took hard rock higher into the stratosphere than the Zep did with their cosmic mixture of deep blues, gothic melodrama, and the supernatural chops of Page, Plant, Bonham and Jones. For listeners new to the Zep canon, there's no better primer of the band's range and power than this 4 CD box set, compiled and remixed in 1990 by Page himself. All the obvious song choices are here. But even if you've already heard "Black Dog" once too often on the car radio, this set wisely spotlights several overlooked gems, including their ultimate blues lament "I'm Gonna Crawl." It's a blueprint that later generations of head-bangers tragically failed to follow.

Led Zeppelin [BOX SET]

Hey, hey, mama, said, the way you move

Hey, baby, whoa, baby, pretty baby
Darlin', can't ya do me now
Hey, baby, oh, baby, pretty baby
Move the way you're movin', now

Didn't take too long 'fore I found out

Spent my money, took my car

Oh, yeah, oh, yeah, ah, ah, ah

Over the Hills and Far Away

Led Zeppelin

Albums:

Led Zeppelin [BOX SET]

Hey, lady, you got the love I need
Maybe more than enough
Oh, darlin', darlin', darlin', walk a while with me
Oh, you got so much, so much, so much

Many have I loved, many times been bitten
Many times I've ga-yazed along the open road
Many times I've lied and many times I've listened
Many times I've wondered how much there is to know
Many dreams come true, and some have silver linings
I live for my dream and a pocketful of gold

Mellow is the man who knows what he's been missin'
Many, many men can't see the open road
Many is a word that only leaves you guessin'
A-guessin' 'bout a thing you really oughta know, hoh, oh, oh, oh
Really oughta know, oh, oh, I really oughta know-whoa, oh-whoa
You know I should, you know I should, you know I should know
Hoo



Immigrant Song

Led Zeppelin

Albums:

Led Zeppelin [BOX SET]

Two, three, four
Ah-ah-ahh-ah, ah-ah-ahh-ah
We come from the land of the ice and snow
from the midnight sun where the hot springs blow

The hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new lands
To fight the horde and sing and cry, "Valhalla, I am coming"

On we sweep with, with threshing oar
Our only goal will be the western shore

Ah-ah-ahh-ah, ah-ah-ahh-ah
We come from the land of the ice and snow
from the midnight sun where the hot springs blow

How soft your fields, so green
can whisper tales of gore, of how we calmed the tides of war
We are your overlords

On we sweep with threshing oar
Our only goal will be the western shore

S-so now you better stop and rebuild all your ruins
for peace and trust can win the day despite of all you're losin'
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ahh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh



Battle of Evermore

Led Zeppelin

Albums:

Led Zeppelin [BOX SET]

The Queen of Light took her bow, and then she turned to go
The Prince of Peace embraced the gloom
and walked the night alone
Oh, dance in the dark of night, sing 'till the mornin' light
The Dark Lord rides in force tonight
and time will tell us haw-all
Oh, throw down your plow and hoe, rest not to lock your home
Side by side, we await the might of the darkest of them all
Oh-ooh-whoa, ooh-whoa-oh-oh

I hear the horses' thunder down in the valley below
I'm waitin' for the angels of Avalon
Waitin' for the eastern glow

The apples of the valley hold the seeds of happiness
The ground is rich from tender care
Repay, do not forget, no, no
Oh, dance in the dark of night, sing to the morning light
The apples turn to brown and black, the tyrant's face is red
Ho, now/Oh, war is the common cry, pick up your swords and fly
The sky is filled with good and bad mortals never know
Now, oh-ho, ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ahh/Oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh-ooh-oh-oh

Oh, well, the night is long, the beads of time pass slow
Tired eyes on the sunrise, waitin' for the eastern glow

The pain of war cannot exceed the woe of aftermath
The drums will shake the castle wall
The Ringwraiths ride in black, ride on
Oh, sing as you raise your bow/Ride on
Shoot straighter than before
No comfort has the fire at night that lights the face so cold
Dance in the dark of night, sing 'till the mornin' light
The magic runes are writ in gold to bring the balance back
Bring it back

At last, the sun is shining, the clouds of blue roll by
A-with flames from the dragon of darkness
The sunlight blinds his eyes, ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-oh-ho, ooh, ooh-ooh, aaah/oooh-ooh-ooh-uh-uhh

Bring it back, bring it back, a-bring it back, bring it back
Bring it back, bring it back, bring it back, bring it back
Oh, now, oh, now, oh, now, oh, oh, now, oh, now, oh, now
Bring it back, bring it back, bring it back, a-bring it back
Whoa, now, oh, now, oh, now, oh, whoa, now, oh, now, oh, now
Bring it, bring it, bring it, bring it
Bring it, bring it, bring it, bring it
Bring it, bring it, bring it, bring it, bring it



Bron-Y-Aur Stomp

Led Zeppelin

Albums:

Led Zeppelin [BOX SET]

Ah, caught you smilin' at me, that's the way it should be
Like a leaf is to a tree, so fine
Ah, all the good times we had, I sung love songs so glad
Always smilin', never sad, so fine

As we walk down the country lanes
I'll be singin' a song, you hear me callin' your name
Hear the wind whisper in the trees
Tellin' Mother Nature 'bout you and me

Well, if the sun shines so bright, or the way is darkest night
the road we choose is always right, so fine
Ah, can a love be so strong when so many loves go wrong
Will our love go on and on and on and on and on and on

As we walk down the country lanes
I'm singin' a song, hear me callin' your name
Hear the wind whisper in the trees
Tellin' Mother Nature 'bout a-you and me

My, my, a-law-de-law, come on, now, it ain't too far
Tell your friends all around the world
ain't no companion like a blue-eyed Merle
Come on, now, well, let me tell ya
what you're missin', missin' 'round them brick walls

So, of one thing I am sure, it's a friendship so pure
Angels singin' all 'round my door, so fine
Yeah, ain't but one thing to do, spend my natural life with you
You're the finest dog I knew, so fine

When you're old and your eyes are dim
there ain't no old shep gonna happen again
We'll still go walkin' down country lanes
I'll sing the same old song, hear me call your name



Tangerine

Led Zeppelin

Albums:

Led Zeppelin [BOX SET]

One, two
One, two, three, four, one, two
Measuring a summer's day
I only find it slips away to gray
The hours, they bring me pain

Tangerine, tangerine, living reflection from a, from a dream
I was her love, she was my queen
and now a thousand years between

Thinking how it used to be
Does she still remember times like these
To think of us again, and I do

Tangerine, tangerine, living reflection from a dream
I was her love, she was my queen
and now a thousand years betwee-ee-ee-een



Going to California

Led Zeppelin

Albums:

Led Zeppelin [BOX SET]

Spend my days with a woman unkind
Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine
Made up my mind, make a new start
Goin' to California with an achin' in my heart
Someone told me there's a girl out there
with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair

Took my chances on a big jet-plane
Never let 'em tell ya that they're aw-ooh-all the same
Hoh, the sea was red and the sky was grey
I wonder how tomorrow could ever follow today-hee
Mountains and the canyons start to tremble and shake
The children of the sun begin to awake
Now
Watch out

It seems that the wrath of the gods got a punch on the nose
and it's startin' to flow, I think I might be sinkin'
Throw me a line, if I reach it in time
Meet you up there where the path runs straight and high

Find a queen without a king
They say she plays guitar and cries and sings, la-la-la-la
Ride a white mare in the footsteps of dawn
Tryin' to find a woman who's never, never, never been born
Standin' on a hill in the mountain of dreams
Tellin' myself it's not as hard, hard, hard as it seems
Mm-mm, now
Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ahh

Misty Mountain Hop

Led Zeppelin

Albums:

Led Zeppelin [BOX SET]

Walkin' in the park just the other day, baby
What d'ya, what d'ya think I saw
Crowds of people sittin' on the grass
with flowers in their hair said, "Hey, boy, do you wanna score"

And y'know how it is
I really don't know what time it was, whoa-ho-ho
So I asked 'em if I could stay a while

I didn't notice but it had got very dark and I was really
really outta my mind
Just then, a policeman stepped up to me
Asked us, said, please, hey, would we care
to all get in line, get in line

Well, y'know, they asked us to stay for tea and have some fun
Ho-ho-ho, he said that his friends would all drop by
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Why don't you take a good look at yourself
and describe what you see
and baby, baby, baby, do ya like it
There you sit, sittin' spare like a book on a shelf rustin'
Ah, not tryin' to fight it

You really don't care if they're comin', whoa-ho-ho
I know that it's only a state of mind
Oh, whoa, whoa, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

If you go down in the streets today, baby, you better
you better open your eyes, whoa, whoa, yeah
Folk down there really don't care, really don't care
don't care, really don't, which, which way the pressure lies
So I've decided what I'm gonna do, now

So I'm packin' my bags for the Misty Mountains
where the spirits go, now
Woo-over the hills where the spirits fly
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo-ooh

It's been a long time since I rock-and-rolled
It's been a long time since I did the stroll
Ooh, let me get it back, let me get it back, let me get it back
mm-baby, where I come from
It's been a long time, been a long time
Been a long, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time
Yes, it has

It's been a long time since the book of love
I can't count the tears of a life with no love
A-carry me back, carry me back, carry me back
mm-baby, where I come from, whoa-whoa, whoa-oh-oh-hoh
It's been a long time, been a long time
Been a long, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time
Ah, ah-ah, ah-ah

Hoh, it seems so long since we walked in the moonlight
a-makin' vows that just couldn't work right
Haw-haw, yeah, open your arms, open your arms, open your arms
Baby, let my love come running in, a-yeah
It's been a long time, been a long time
Been a long, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time

Rain Song

Led Zeppelin

Albums:

Led Zeppelin [BOX SET]

It is the springtime of my loving
The second season I am to know
You are the sunlight in my growing
So little warmth I felt before
It isn't hard to feel me glowing
I watched the fire nn-that grew so low, ooh, ooh, whoa-oh

It is the summer of my smiles
Flee from me, keepers of the gloom
Speak to me only with your eyes
It is to you I give this tune
Ain't so hard to recognize, oh
These things are clear to all from time to time
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, oh-ho, oh-ho

Uh, talk, talk, talk, talk
Hey, I felt the coldness of my winter
I never thought it would ever go-whoa
I cursed the gloom that set upon us, 'pon us, 'pon us
but I know that I love you so-oh
Oh-whoa, mm-but I know that I love you so-whoa

These are the seasons of emotion
and like the wind, a-they rise and fall
This is the wonder of devotion
I see the torch we all must hold
This is the mystery of the quotient, quotient
Uh, upon us all, upon us all a little rain must fall
Just a little rain, hoh, now
Aw, woo-ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah


Stairway to Heaven

Led Zeppelin

Albums:

Led Zeppelin [BOX SET]

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
and she's buying a stairway to Heaven
When she gets there, she knows if the stores are all closed
with a word she can get what she came for
Ooh-ooh-hoo, hoo, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
And she's buying a stairway to Heaven

There's a sign on the wall, but she wants to be sure
'cause you know sometimes words have two meanings
In a tree by the brook there's a songbird who sings sometimes
All of our thoughts are misgiven

Ooh, it makes me wonder, ooh, makes me wonder-er-er-er-er-er

There's a feelin' I get when I look to the west
and my spirit is crying for leaving
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees
and the voices of those who stand looking

Ooh, it makes me wonder, ooh, really makes me wonder

And it's whispered that soon, if we all call the tune
then the piper will lead us to reason
and a new day will dawn for those who stand long
and the forests will echo with laughter

Oh-whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa-hoh-oh

If there's a bustle in your hedge-row, don't be alarmed, now
It's just a spring-clean for the May Queen
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
nn-there's still time to change the road you're on

And it makes me wonder-a, oh-whoa-hoh

Your head is hummin' and it won't go
In case you don't know, the piper's callin' you to join him
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow
and did you know your stairway lies on the whisperin' wind
Hoh-oh-oh

And as we wind on down the road
our shadows taller than our soul
there walks a lady we all know-ow
who shines white light and wants to show
how everything still turns to gold
and if you listen very hard
the tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all, yeah
to be a rock and not to roll-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, yeah
And she's buying a stairway to Heaven
