Called LedZep IV, Zoso, and worse, this is the album that has maybe the most popular Led Zeppelin song of them all. Stairway to heaven was always battling Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody for the top position in my country’s yearly top 2000.
I should have more LedZep, but alas, I have not. I was born too late, developed musically too slowly, whatever. I missed the moment. Just like I missed Star Wars and Indiana Jones. I can still appreciate the music and the movies, but it will never be as close to the heart as it is with some of my generation.
Of course, I cannot ignore the beautiful artwork on this album. My version is a gatefold, with the famous hermit on the inside.
