"Outside bog" is working class Brit for an outhouse at the end of the backyard (or "garden" as they'd say)

  4:07pm The Butterman:

I haven’t heard this since around 92. Far out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm tim from champaign:

As time goes by, the early blues rock Zeppelin does less for me and the later albums do more for me. Particularly Presence.
  4:09pm Santos L Halper:

Hah! I come for a visit, tune in FMU in my hotel...and it’s SW getting the Led out : D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm Rich in Washington:

Classic rock stations have sort of killed Led Zeppelin for me, but I must admit, it's nice to hear some of these less hammered-into-the-ground songs
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm mrdonutsu:

@tim - Totally agree. Much of the first two albums is almost cringe-inducing for me now. It's the later stuff where their creativity comes out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm tim from champaign:

I think the Jesus Lizard should have added synths and mellotron to their major label albums.
Avatar 4:11pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Otoh - 1st album is still kinda New yARdbiRdS...
Avatar 4:12pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

3rd Zep trax - lotsa UK Folk coming in...but that is kinda 'plagiarized' too...still.
Avatar 4:12pm Chris from DC:

Still a fan of Physical Graffiti and Presence for sure.
  4:13pm yes:

Digging the ice cream man , scott
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm crateslinger:

I think Scott played In the light about maybe four years ago and it rekindled my interest in Physical Graffiti if not Led Zep in general. I have played it a couple times since then. One of the few albums me and my wife can agree on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Rich in Washington:

I just found this album in a box of cassettes yesterday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Scott Williams:

Physical Graffiti surprises me every single time. Gotta revisit Presence next
  4:18pm prudy:

enjoying this eno/cale collaboration...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm crateslinger:

You did play that song several years ago did you not Scott? Cuz somebody did and I think it was you. I was at my last job and I remember going, "holy crap".
Avatar 4:19pm northguineahills:

Still waiting for an American/Physical Graffiti crossover mashup.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Scott Williams:

@crateslinger, I checked it out - looks like I played "Down By The Seaside" a few years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm crateslinger:

dang - guess that's it but I coulda sweared it was "in the light"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm tim from champaign:

Damn Scott, you're killing it with the seamless transitions today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm steveo:

on google street view, on the ground floor of the rightmost of the the st. marks place buildings from the zeppelin album is visible a beverage shop called Physical GraffiTea

I'm now walking over where there once was Mission Creek...it is all cement city blocks now.

Minetta St in Greenwich was a creek before it put underground. (See also Sputen Duyvil in the Bronx/Marble Hill. I have scores of more examples in NYC, but, I won't bore you all.).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm Ken From Hyde Park:

A busy week for Suzy. Hosting for EFD on Wednesday evening as well.
Avatar 4:34pm northguineahills:

I was on a kickball team, and a member of our team was on the Brooklyn Bombshells, so, I would watch the roller derby matches on late night cable access tv. Suzy Hotrod was always mention in all of her matches. Then I saw her on WFMU, and asked, "are you that Suzy Hotrod?"
  4:39pm Brian Smith:

Just saying hello. First started hearing you in the late 1990s from Muskegon MI. Now living in sunny Lexington SC. I must say, you don't sound a day older ! Keep going and going !

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Parq:

Steveo, looks like a penguin.
  4:42pm McGreivey:

This Harmonia track sounds like a My Life in the Bush of Ghosts or Before and After Science outtake. I guess that makes sense.
