Dazed and Confused (18:39)

Cover of Led Zeppelin

From Led Zeppelin and 230 other releases

Dazed and Confused is the biggest hit from the debut (and break through) album of Led Zeppelin released 12th january, 1969. This song and album became music history. It is still considered a huge hit by many people.

According to the Dazed and Confused Songfacts, it was inspired by an acoustic song that Jimmy Page heard folk singer Jake Holmes perform. Holmes version was about an acid trip, but contained many of the same elements that made their way into the Led Zeppelin version.

In concert, Led Zeppelin would play and extended version of this song which would sometimes run as long as 30 minutes. It was a showcase for the amazing guitar wizardry of Jimmy Page, and they never played it quite the same twice.

    The melody that slowly goes down during each break down/chorus thing, the drum fills, so fantastic.

    Though singer-songwriter Jake Holmes actually wrote “Dazed and Confused”, Page first contributed guitar work to a recording of the track when The Yardbirds covered it in the mid-60s. He then brought it to his Led Zep band mates who added heavy metal, blues and hard rock flavors to the psychedelic rock original. With different lyrics, an altered melody, and Page’s use of a bow to play his guitar, it quickly became one of their most performed pieces. -- watchmojo

    I think this is one of Robert Plant's greatest vocal performances with Zeppelin. Indeed, he sang brilliantly throughout that debut album.

    That breakdown with the drums that leads into the solo. It is absolutely frantic and totally timeless 40+ years on.
