Led Zeppelin And Solitaire

I like to zone out now and then playing solitaire on the computer and listening to music . Last night I was doing just that .I found a bunch of classic Led Zeppelin songs .As I listened to them , realized how timelessly classic they were . The music is just as awesome as the first time I heard it . The lyrics are as relevant today as they were " back in the day" . The talent, amazing .

I heard Led Zeppelin growing up and it was like back ground music to life , you know , you hear something but don't really pay that much attention to it ? Their music was in all the disco's and club that we went to , but again , I just heard it , not felt it .My nephews and kids actually were the ones that truly introduced me to Led Zeppelin.  Same thing with Pink Floyd , but that is another story for another time .

How crazy is it to " discover ' something that has been around for years in your life and yet never noticed . Anyway ,I thought I would share with you one of my favorite tunes by Led Zeppelin, "Kashmir" , played unplugged in concert on MTV . I think this is the way the song was meant to sound in the beginning . It makes me think of Libya's wadis , or dry river beds, that come to life only in the rainy season.

Wow, I've heard that Led Zeppelin song many many times but have never appreciated it as much as just now watching this video. Seeing the musicians and all the instruments, great footage by the way, really brings it to life.
Thanks for posting it. Where did you get the video?
