Stairway To Heaven, The Album

Updated on September 29, 2014

If you want true rock and roll, this is it!

I already know that I am in a heap of trouble with diehard rock fans by calling this the Stairway to Heaven album. Yes this is Led Zeppelin IV and sometimes called Zoso or Ruins. I never really knew the name of the album at the young age of 14 when I bought it. The only thing that identified this album to me was the big sticker on the shrink wrap that said "features Stairway To Heaven". I already had the "45" of Black Dog and I thought that was so cool, but I was also getting older and I knew that buying a "45" record was no longer cool. Being a young lady rocker and all that, is why I just had to have the Stairway to Heaven album. Little did I know this would become one of the greatest rock and roll records of all time.

Led Zeppelin IV features only eight songs, but any hard core Led Zeppelin or rock and roll fan will tell you these are the best eight songs that have ever been on one album (right?). There are no fillers or extras, every song is GREAT! I also love that each song is unique in style and there is a huge variety of music here. Two of my very favorites on this album are Misty Mountain Hop and Going To California. They are very different songs but both will take you away to a Led Zeppelin heaven experience.

If you are looking for classic rock and roll at its finest, give this one a listen. You won't regret it.

      Loved the band. Trivia: A lot of folks back in the day got this not only for the tunes, but also for the art work w/in the artwork on the album cover. Check out the images in the trees with a magnifying glass sometime. Very interesting.

      I was never into them in the 70s with exception of a few songs, but strangely later in life I've learned to appreciate their musical genius

      This is a fantastic album. Maybe some would say it's blasphemous to like another song over Stairway to Heaven, but my favorite on the album is When the Levee Breaks.
