    I note there's one or two Zeppelin fans on this forum... so, which one is your favourite album?


    ...and why? Does it bring back pleasant memories of the past? Did you see them in concert?

    Physical Graffitti is my all-time fav...

    Their other albums are good, and some might argue much better than Physical Graffitti...but that album has "Kasmir", which is a powerful song...as well as this being out at the time I was in high school...

    Good memories of good times!

    Ohhh...welll...when was there not a party?

    Let's just say that being a teenager in Southern California during the late 70's had a never ending supply of *interesting* moments! :lol:

    I have to go with IV, Black Dog, When the Levee Breaks and of course Stairway.

    Physical Graffiti would be my 2nd, because of Kashmir. I loved it when Plan and Page redid it with some mid eastern instruments and voices. I still have all my albums with II being my favorite cover.

    Saw them at Earl's court in 1975 as a youngster. Always liked the fourth album but that probably reflects my age more than anything.

    Got 'em all, but for me it's the live album "How The West Was Won" that sums up everything that Zep was about...

    Led Zeppelin? Who dat!? :)

    My personal fav is Zep III. Kinda raw, kinda folky. To be honest there isn't one album or even one song by them that I can't stand. But, of course, since I was in a Zep tribute band, I'm biased. :)

    Has anyone seen the bridge?
    Wheres that confounded bridge?!!!

    Plant. Had the permed and frosted hair along with the flowery shirts. Just before I went original with big hair bands in the early '80s. called ourselves 'Coda' was one band - another was 'Alibi'.

    "Coda". I was working in Italy,with Ligabue, a few years ago and a friend of a friend who owned or managed an Irish bar in Firenze gave me one of their albums! I've just found it in my attic (sorry!). "Halfway to heaven" is that you?
    I don't think Coda is that rare a name but you never know.
    Small world if it is.

    Sorry, never got as far as making an album. Only lasted about 2 years. We just played local clubs here in Jersey, Philly, NY and Delaware.

    Thank heavens for that. I can now say that the album I have by your namesakes is seriously C**P.
    Cheers

    Which album? Some Zep albums are better than others and while I realise it's a matter of taste I'd be hard pressed to describe any of them as "cr*p".
