Song of the Week: March 6, 2006

notes copy.pngApparently my weeks start on Thursdays. Anyway, I've picked something quite special this week; this track's probably my favorite recording of all time (it's at least top-5 material).It starts out slow but speeds up to what we've come to expect from Led Zeppelin. This one's a little-known gem called Over the Hills and Far Away. It's classic Zep from the album How the West was Won, a mastered concert recording from the late '70s. Enjoy.

 

Led Zeppelin: Over the Hills and Far Away (a concert recording)

Sadly, this gem of an album isn't on iTunes, nor is the song. There are tribute versions, but like everything, the original's always better. I highly recommend this album; I feel the live versions of these songs are better than their studio recordings, so hunt it down and buy it, especially if you're a Zeppelin fan.
