Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffiti

John Tobler, ZigZag, August 1975

NOW I SHOULD make clear in this context that I'm not by nature a fan of this band in the same way that I like Van Morrison or Love. My position is one of deep respect, mind you, and while I was heard to say some harsh things about Beck copyists, etc, when the first album came out, such notions no longer seem to apply. I feel that I would have to perform a masterpiece of justification if I wanted to put L.Z. down, and in all honesty, there's no fuel for that particular fire.
