Introduced to Led Zeppelin's debut album as a 15 year old by my mate John, I found them to be (on the basis of that first album) pretty much a full-on, fast-paced bluesy rock outfit - perhaps a little TOO much so for my tastes at the time. That is, until I heard this track on their second album. As a loving tribute by Robert Plant to his wife-of-the-time, Maureen, it is as gentle and sensitive a ballad as you will hear anywhere.
But with the usual added Zepp "oomph", expertly provided by this tight foursome. Knocked out on first hearing it, I was as hooked on this band as any other post-pubescent teen of the time was, from that point on. Taken from "Led Zeppelin II", it closed Side One of the vinyl LP; it's Track Four on any CD. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thank_You_%28Led_Zeppelin_song%29
COMING ON MONDAY: #MyFirstRecordBuys . What were the first records/vinyl/cassette/CDs you EVER bought? The ten-year-old Lee, starting to take an interest in all things Beatles, decided to divert some of his hard-complained-for (not hard-worked-for) parental pocket money into owning a collection of records. What's YOUR story?
Thank You :-)
