oh, please. music is like a river. it moves, evolves, incorporates, undulates, gets sampled, and the new version gets added to the mix.

jimmy listened carefully to blues masters. don't get ahead of yourselves. 

listen to the original you shook me. did page rip that off too? complete baloney when george got nicked for this same thing.

heck, the afghan whigs "algiers" sounds like a rip off of "be my baby" and so on  . . .

Note for Note THEFT. Not just the song but the entire arrangement.
Breaks my heart to have realized it but Page was one of the worst plagiarists of our times. Several egregious examples stand out: Bert Jansch's Black Water Side was ripped off completely when Page did Black Mountain Side and again when his arrangement of The Waggoners Lad was stolen for Brony Aur Stomp. Davey Grahams She Moved Through The Fair was turned into White Summer and Page had the balls to confabulate a story that he "learned Eastern Music styles while backpacking through India" which was precisely how Graham went on to innovate the DADGAD sitar style tuning Page ripped off. Jake Holme's Dazed and Confused was note for note theft. Breeden's lovely arrangement of the folk ballad Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, the Willie Dixon, the Howling Wolf, all of it stolen. It is clear that Page and his lawyers took the "fuck em, let em sue us" approach to doing business. The chickens are coming home to roost. Read this piece and go to the sources. It's an eye opener. http://alanwalkerart.com/wp/?tag=bert-jansch

Cranked to 11. Chills on a 90 degree afternoon. Awesome and awe-producing, even after all these years.

As a big LZ fan I hated this song from the beginning. Some pointless psychedelica attempt and this damn guitar bow.. but oh my GOD JP invented that! How great they say, even if the ears are bleeding. Getting a late insight and reading about how they stole most of their songs from others almost 40 years later doesn't make it better.

Thanks Markybx for pointing this out!  {#Smile} 

The grandstanding of Page and the Mighty Plant here tends to overshadow the godliness of the other two.  I've always liked Zeppelin but it's only been in the last decade that I've realized just how stellar this band was.
