    hi, i know this is probably in the wrong forum but here goes...

    i have recently heard Led Zepplin for the first time, the song being Immigrant Song. It really kicked some ass and now im looking for more Zeppling songs, so could someone recommend some great Led Zeppling songs for me to hear?

    Get the How The West Was Won -set, you'll find most of the legendary ones there. Three CDs of live Zeppelin, man that's worth every cent you spend getting it! :bassist:

    Getting collections is ok...

    BUT, as a Led-o-phile, I suggest you get each orginal CD,,, digest it, & then move on to the next.

    It's the only way to go, and when you finish, you should end up with...

    Led Zeppelin I through IV
    Houses of the Holy
    Pysical Graffiti
    The Song Remains the Same
    In Through the Out Door
    *NOTE: You can accomplish the above by purchasing both box sets or the reissue box of all of the original albums.

    The BBC Sessions
    How the West Was Won
    The Song Ramains the Same DVD
    Led Zeppelin DVD (the new 2 disc set that was recently released showcasing live material from '69-'80)
    Solo material from:

    Jimmy Page (The Firm, Coverdale/Page, Deathwish II soundtrack, Page/Crowes Live at the Greek, all late Yardbirds material)

    Robert Plant (From '66 to Timbuktu, Fate of Nations, etc.)

    Page/Plant (Unledded, Waking into Clarksdale)

    John Paul Jones (w/Diamanda Galas, Zooma, The Thunderthief, Scream For Help soundtrack)

    Jason Bonham-In the Name of My Father: The Zep Set.

    THEN...once you've made it through all of that, you can start digging into the countless live recordings that were made of the band from late '68 through '80 and then the remaining members from '82 to present. :D :bassist:

    get the box set with all the albums if you can.
    It's an education no musician should be without.

    also, the new DVD is great. Nice chance to see them in action at their peak.

    2.Zeppelin 2

    5.Physical Graffiti
    6.Song Remains The Same
    7.Houses Of the Holy

    best albums imo is physical graffiti.
    4 or zoso or the officially untitled album is brilliant
    Infact everything is brilliant, that's why they are the best rock band..... ever
