Led Zeppelin 111.

Jimmy Page-acoustic, electric and pedal steel guitar, banjo, backing vocal.
Robert Plant-vocals, harmonica.
John Bonham-drums, percussion, backing vocals.
John Paul Jones-bass, organ, synthesizer, mandolin, backing vocals.

The Daily Mail's Live Magazine in 2007 hailed Led Zeppelin 111 as "The greatest rock album of all times"

Led Zeppelin 111 is their third album recorded under the Atlantic label and released in 1970.

Most of the songs were composed in Bron-yr-Aur, a remote place in the middle of nowhere with no electricity or running water.

The music leans towards folk rock, blues and acoustic folk.

Even though there is no "Whole Lotta of Love Part 2" the album still went platinum and was #1 on US Billboard and the British Album charts.

My fave songs are "Immigrant song" and "Gallows Pole"

Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, Robert Plant and John Bonham.

Side One: 1. Immigrant song (video) 2. Friends 3. Celebration Day 4. Since I've been loving you 5. out on the tiles.

Side Two: 1. Gallows pole (video) 2. Tangerine 3. That's the way 4. Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp 5.Hats off to (Roy) Harper.

We must have worn out the grooves on this album, playing it countless times at your home. One of my favorites in your collection.
