THE STORY BEHIND EVERY STUDIO TRACK.

Commonly described simply as heavy, Led Zeppelin’s music was actually a complex amalgam of blues, rock, folk and country. Martin Popoff dissect each of Zep’s 81 studio tracks, including the circumstances that led to their creation, the recording processes and their historical contexts. Introductory essays for each album features sidebars listing studios, release dates and personnel. Beautifully illustrated with rare performance and offstage photography and memorabilia, the result is a stunning look at the foursome who forged the template for the marauding modern rock ‘n’ roll band.

Folks, this is the gosh-darn prettiest book I ever got to stick my name on. It’s hardcover, full colour throughout on heavy premium gloss. The cover is weirdly velvety and makes use of spot varnish and neon inks. And the dimension is this odd 7 3/4” x 10” which is... there’s just something really unique about it.

But inside, there are tons of pictures Voyageur Press unearthed that I’d never seen before, plus loads of memorabilia shots.

And the bottom line is that ever last thought I ever had on Zeppelin has got to be in here, because I basically had to write a couple of pages of text on each and every Zeppelin song. This was pure hard-graft writing, melding analysis with hundreds of trivia nuggets, opinion (some of it not so complimentary—possibly get in some trouble here) and obsessive dissection, which was in truth, so gratifying to execute ‘cos for years I wanted to say my piece on Zeppelin.

Plus, there’s interview footage in there for a few sidebars, where I’ve offered quotes from my interviews with John Paul Jones, Aubrey Powell, Ron Nevison, the late Andy Johns, a bit from Robert Plant and a few other rock stars who tell me why Zep rules.
