THE TBL COUNTDOWN COLLECTION: NUMBER 6 WITH 24 DAYS TO GO:
Number 6 in the countdown to Celebration Day:
Today’s choice is The Most Collection –Various Artists on the budget Music For Pleasure label. I purchased this in late 1973 at Carlow’s in Bedford for 89 pence. This is a little gem –and at the time upped my education of Zep influences overnight. Basically this profiles the work of producer Mickie Most. It includes the superb Page era Yardbirds Little Games (with John Paul Jones string arrangement) and Ten Little Indians (which has early use of the backwards echo technique Page would use on Whole Lotta Love), plus the CCS cover version of the aforementioned Zep classic, plus the man could have been the singer in Zep Terry Reid performing the brilliant Friends (a hit for Arrival in 1970) and Superlungs, plus the soaring instrumental Beck’s Bolero (written by Page) –the late ’66 super group session featuring Keith Moon, Nicky Hopkins, JPJ and Beck and Page where the name Led Zeppelin was first mooted. Not bad for all under a quid!
Until tomorrow……when we will be presenting a John Bonham special posting…
