Physical Graffiti













My sister Linda amassed a goldmine of records throughout the 1970s; digging into it one day I came upon Physical Graffiti, Led Zeppelin's double album released in 1975. Like the Stones' Exile on Main Street (1972), it keeps on giving decades later. I can listen to this one for hours on end, like a nice bit of Miles Davis or John Coltrane (also first got into via Linda's eclectic vinyl stacks). Thank you, Linda -- again!

I haven't listened to Zeppelin as much as the Stones, but this gives me a reminder to go do it.

Erik, Led Zeppelin was one of my favorites in the 70's and is now one of my son's favs!

When I first started learning to play guitar in the late seventies, and first started listening to Zeppelin, I devoured the Physical Graffiti album. Nice analogy to Exile.

My fifteen year old son loves Zeppelin as well.

Very cool. I like this one a lot. Good selection for a song to play, as well. I've always been more of a Black Sabbath fan than a Zep fan, but the Zep will surely have a good place in my heart.

I always thought, in some strange way, that Exile On Main Street & PG were somehow compliments to each other. They both have an powerful, summer feel to them, as if they were records intended to be listened to on a warm, clear summer's day while drinking whiskey and chilling.
