Top Twenty Best Albums of the 70's-Led Zepplin IV
Top twenty albums
The 1970's was a fabulous decade for music , with a great variety, and some of the great albums of the era remain timeless, and are still selling today.
Music lovers always have their favourite albums,and will make a list of their top albums. Here are my top albums of the 1970's, and of course in no particular order.
Led Zep. IV
By the time Led Zepplin had finished recording "IV" in 1971 ,they were well on the way to becoming the biggest rock and roll band in the world.
Formed in 1968 and consisting of Jimmy Page (guitar), Robert Plant (vocals, harmonica), John Paul Jones (bass guitar, keyboards, mandolin), and John Bonham (drums) they were essentially a heavy metal band but they didn't forget their folk and blues roots on this album,with the masterpiece melodic ballads, The Battle Of Evermore featuring folk diva Sandy Denny of Fairport Convention, and Going To California featuring the more gentle vocals of Robert Plant.
This album is always going to best known for the eight minute Stairway To Heaven, the epic acoustic classic which is one of the most requested radio songs in radio history, and a great performance from all four band members.The last track when The Levee Breaks is as equally powerful.
The album is also known as Four Symbols or Zoso, due to the mystical "runes" adopted by each band member."IV" topped the album charts in the UK,and has gone on to sell over 20 million copies and still ranks as one the ten best selling albums in music history.
This was a pioneering rock album, has hardly dated, Stairway to Heaven Is the most popular and most played out rock song.Jimmy Page gives us the the best guitar solo ever it's great from it's quiet introduction through to the loud, metal bashing ending.Probably not Zeppelin's best song, but certainly one of the best.
Last track, The Levee Breaks is another incredible song. Robert Plant's shrieking vocals compliment the blues inspired guitar lines and John Bonham's superb heavy drum sound.
