What album did JPJ switch to Alembics?

    When did he give up on the jazz and switch over?

    I believe everything after Physical Graffiti
  3. I think the best example of JPJ's Alembic is Ozone Baby off Coda. :bassist:
  4. always dug his tone on that. kind of almost a MM sorta tone, too, eh?

    i love Coda...i think it largely captures Zeppelin as a bar band. i know that's an unpopular opinion amongst Zep fans. oh well.

    My recollection is that JPJ was much more involved with the production of Presence and Coda. Those tunes were (in general) more "bass-centric" than their earlier work. Or it could be that HiFi Alembic tone... hard to ignore.

    Physical Graffiti is probably my all-time favorite album. Here is a pic of the actual building depicted on the cover:
