Written by John Bonham,Willie Dixon,John Paul Jones,Jimmy Page and Robert Plant
Produced by Jimmy Page
Label – Atlantic
Granted, there’s a definitive debt to Willie Dixon for Jimmy Page’s iconic riff, but the real thrill of this record is how the band take primitive blues and create an incredible mix of hard rock with a free jazz like instrumental section. The sexually infused minute and half of weird noises, Robert Plant’s howls and John Bonham’s creative rhythms are the closest aural equivalent to a drugged up trip to Venus and back.
