You don’t like songs about Tolkien novels??
I would say I like about 75% of Zeppelin’s catalog. Some of it took a while to grow on me. Physical Graffiti is like that. There are so many songs on that album that, because I listened to it on repeat in high school, I grew to love. But only a few that were instant likes such as Kashmir and Trampled Under Foot.
The top twenty or so truly great Zeppelin songs are so great that it overshadows some of there rougher obscure tracks that are not up to par with the others. Specifically, When the Levee Breaks is one that I had heard for decades and thought it was just ok. Then one day, I heard it in a movie soundtrack and it clicked for me. At that point I was like, “how did I not realize the greatness of this song the first time I heard it?!?!”
Interesting you say that. I had the same revelation listening to When the Levee Breaks some years back and more than any band I have experienced that rediscovery with Zeppelin. I suspect we started listening to some of that at such a young age with a much less critical ear and played it so much that some of the essence was cooked out of it. Those songs may have required another listen in another time and frame of mind. I had a similar experience with the Stones Worried about You.
Off target but here’s a great cover of one of the few and far between great Beatles song. Wicked bass work.
