I'm glad someone else rates that song. I only ever see it getting slagged off, but I think it's great.

I considered both, along with Hey, Hey What Can I Do? but went heavier.

When in doubt with Zeppelin, go hard or go home.

I like it when I read lists and wish I'd thought of those three.

When The Levee breaks is an unusual case. It is undoubtedly one of the top Zep tracks, but it has less to do with songsmanship than craft. It's ALL about the mix, and Bonzo's fatback groove. One thing I know, is that it is uncoverable. You can not recreate the excitment of that track live, because it's magic is wholly the product of arrangement and sound design. Furthermore, no one should ever try because you'll just feel soiled afterwards. And dirty. And alone...

I nearly came to blows with a bandmate over whether or not simply adding more flange and delay to the harmonica would make it sound right, and it never fucking did. It just lay there, sulking, and staring at the crowd for 7 minutes.
Freak out. Far out.
