Someone at the Beeb loves Zep, they seem to be on rotation as incidental music on so many shows.

Bourée is such a beautiful piece.

I don't mind a bit of Zep. Once met Robert Plant at a party in Kidderminster.

Plant is very down to earth, as is Page.

Just blows me away when I think about Zep, Sabbath, The Beatles, Stones, The Who, Floyd, Cream, Tull, YES, King Crimson, ELP and all the rest.

The second British Empire, it truly was!

can't believe you lot are talking about Jethro Tull now - I was just about to hit the sack and now I'm all awakened! Used to be obsessed with Tull, though only managed to see them twice. I'm not a fan of much after Broadsword but I still can't get enough of the first 5-odd albums. The second side ( :oops: ) of Minstrel's my fave but I love This Was, Benefit, Thick as a Brick, Heavy Horses, Aqualung and Passion Play. Oh and Songs from, of course ..We used to do a cover version of Velvet Green back in the '80s

What a band at their peak :D

I remember when I got Passion Play, I was so excited I listened to it from the needle. No amp.

Hundred percent. I got it and took it to our Scout hut, we had decks but no speakers so I listened to it on the deck.

well its Purist for sure. I guess, with hand cupped behind ear it's not a million miles away from the first 'hi-fi', before they had electricity. :)
