Also to the wiseking...read the Rolling Stone transcripts of the court proceedings...the jury was justifiably mesmorized by the stories about how Stairway came together.  Good artists always have all the melodies they have heard at their disposal.
Wish I could rate this one higher.

Not so wise king , with a rating of 8.4 , possibly the highest I have ever seen on RP , nobody really cares , and your attempt at self aggrandisement cannot distract from Pages excellent recording .

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

This song was always played at my college house as a warning to our one roommate, Crazy Casey, he who shagged nearly anyone.  And we were right to warn him, too late for the herpes diagnosis and the repeated giving of his "gift" to the ladies. We kept a mental list going of which girls to avoid. 
Long live RP and LZ!!

Unbelievably great song after 40+ plus.  An exceptional debut album of all time.

Nah, there are several other occasions where they do that, but I think they also have the titles combined like this pairing does.

Does anybody know if this version played by RP is the same as the remastered album? I could be dreaming but the difference is huge to me.

This song is pretty cool.  According to the wiki Jones played the bass line with organ pedals and Page played an out of tune Fender 10 string steal guitar that he had only recently learnt.

Love the big organ intro.

Once you start playing this side of this album how can you not just play the whole thing. First of two great LPs in 1969.

If you haven't already give Bert Jansch's Black Water Side a listen.

...back in the day when we rode our bikes without helmets, dad would let us ride in the back of the pick up truck, we went out and played, ya and even ate dirt (or worms) we were adventurous. Reflected in our music as we grew up - adventurous. Nowadays mom has to drive them to the store in the back of the Lincoln Navigator with their buds plugged in and texting instead of talking. a lot of todays music has no adventure - no one explores anymore - plus we used to pay for our music- now everyone wants the free download. You get what you pay for...
