My 50 Favorite Albums (continued)
Zoso was sitting silently in my vinyl collection for the last 15+ years as I moved on from classic rock into new genres and new bands.
But thank god for the nine year old kid who brought it back out with a bang.
Hey, Hey Mama, said the way you move, Gonna make You sweat, Gonna make You groove,
Zoso is a decade for me, the 1970s, I was 10 when the record came out and its songs were the soundtrack of my teenage years.
Slow dancing to Stairway to Heaven until drums kicked in and it was time to rock.
Black Dog and Rock and Roll on the radio all the time.
Flipping the disk after Stairway to Heaven to get to the mellow side.
And my favorite Led Zeppelin track of all time, When The Levee Breaks. I just can't get enough of the wailing harmonica and the hammering drums.
And the drums. John Bonham was the greatest rock drummer of all time and he did his best work on this record. I wish I could have seen Bonham play with Four Sticks. I never did.
Well that's basically it for this one. Time to go flip the record.
