Monday YouTube Fix: Led Zeppelin

Andrew Hitz

The first time I really heard Led Zeppelin and paid attention was in the Leningrad Airport in the former Soviet Union in 1990.  A friend in the trombone section said "Hey Hitz, check this out" and handed me his headphones. That experience changed my musical life forever. As soon as I got home I bought my first Led Zeppelin album, Led Zeppelin 4.  Within two weeks I bought two more and soon owned all 10 of their albums.  I had never heard non-classical music that had spoken to me so profoundly.

This track, Going to California, was on that first album I purchased.  This is a live version from Earl's Court which is simply stunning and so beautiful.  These guys are real musicians.  They have possibly the greatest rock and roll drummer in the world in their band and yet they are able to groove this hard without him even on stage.

I love me some Led Zeppelin!

Enjoy!
