Led Zeppelin: Led Zeppelin (Atlantic)

Felix Dennis, Oz, March 1969

VERY OCCASIONALLY a long-playing record is released that defies immediate classification or description, simply because it's so obviously a turning point in rock music that only time proves capable of shifting it into eventual perspective. (Dylan's Bringing It All Back Home, The Byrds' Younger Than Yesterday, Disraeli Gears, Hendrix's Are You Experienced? and Sgt. Pepper). This Led Zeppelin album is like that.
