In a stunning turn of events, I have mostly good news to share this week because I feel like we all need it. First though, let’s get the unpleasant and ridiculous out of the way.
It is a point of pride that my record collection boasts original Zeppelin albums in good to excellent condition. Some albums must be treated with a certain amount of reverence when they lay the groundwork for so many forthcoming bands. Channeling the blues and with Robert Plant’s otherworldly yowl, Led Zeppelin’s first album makes the impending decade of rock possible, and it is likely one of the most important albums I own.
