Good but Iffy

FreakFace

There's another box set -- on amazon.com at http://bit.ly/1TWBm1 -- that has fewer but more precise selections of the roots of this rock and roll band's homage to their blues inspiration. This collection is great, but some of the choices feel like a stretch to me -- rooted more in genre or riff than in actual song sampling. See also my emusic lists called "Traces of Zeppelin" and "Led Zeppelin Humor" if you can find them.

Great compilation

Artbrat

An awesome selection of blues - it is fun to try to make the connections to Zeppelin tunes. It blew me away to hear the original "Dazed and Confused" which Zeppelin apparently never gave credit to Jake Holmes for.

The Real Roots of Blues

JimiP

Yes, it is true Led Zepplin has a special place in hell for claiming to have writen alot of these songs, the good part is that they got them out front where we 'outsiders' could learn about them. Now we must take the next step and hear the originals from the men and women (yeh Memphis Minnie & Big Mama Thorton kicked butt intheir day) who wrote these or are at the very least second generation artists who played these songs. There are some that we may be familiar with - I have my own opinion of anything Jerry Lee Lewis ever did, see above statement - but overall these three (i believe) Roots of . . are perfect for gettting down to the core of the blues songs we have known for years. Some of the quality may not be the best but many of them were recorded in the fields (yeh on plantations dude) so we best enjoy what we can get. Once you download this, pick thru the others many repeats),and look into the featured artists and seek out their other recordings.
