If you were to assemble a hard rock band you’d probably want John Bonham on drums, John Paul Jones on bass, Jimmy Page on guitar and Robert Plant on vocals. That’s what Led Zeppelin did and they were arguably the best hard rock band there’s ever been. Their self-titled debut was released in 1968 and thus cemented the band’s place in rock history forever. Various vinyl and CD versions available.

Led Zeppelin announced themselves to the world with rock monster “Good Times, Bad Times”, the opening track on their debut album. It showcases the individual talents of Plant, Page, Bonham and Jones in less than three minutes and gave us a delicious taste of things to come.
The album is a mixture of their brand of heavy rock and some more traditional blues covers such as “I Can’t Quit You Baby” and “You Shook Me” which were both originally by Willie Dixon. One of the stand-out tracks on the album was a much heavier version of Jake Holmes’ “Dazed and Confused”.
The highlights for me are the two and a half minute blast “Communication Breakdown” with its high energy riff and vocal performance and the anthemic “Your Time Is Gonna Come”. A pretty classy debut.
