Since I've Been Loving You (7:23)

Cover of Led Zeppelin III

From Led Zeppelin III and 212 other releases

The song was recorded live in the studio with very little overdubbing. John Paul Jones played Hammond Organ on the song, using the bass pedals for the bassline. It was the only track from the third album that the band had played live prior to the recording sessions, but was reportedly the hardest to record. One story mentions Jimmy Page taking a break following a series of failed attempts to track the solo. Seemingly unable to get the tone he was craving, he set about a walk around the studio to clear his mind. Sitting outside of the recording area was an unplugged amplifier, which he utilised, and recorded the solo we hear today on the next take. Audio engineer Terry Manning called it “The best rock guitar solo of all time.”

    Listening to "Led Zeppelin III" released on October 5, 1970. Many of the songs featured on the album were conceived in mid-1970 at Bron-Yr-Aur, an 18th-century cottage in Gwynedd, Wales, on a hilltop overlooking the Dyfi Valley, three miles north of the market town Machynlleth. This set the tone for this masterpiece of music. No electric or running water, Page & Plant where roughing it(LOL), they only had a staff of 7. Song written by Jones, Page & Plant.

    То самое, что выворачивает наизнанку, кружит, прокучивает душу в твоем теле, словно осенние листья на безудержном ветру, оголяет тот нерв, который тихо затаился изнутри, ждав момента вырваться на свободу, а ты, закрываешь глаза, даешь волю своему эскамизму, внимая все это, упиваясь…до опьянения…

    This track is so unique. It's hard to find anything like it, even among the Chicago blues masters. The combination of melancholic blues with masterful arrangements. "Danger Zone" by Stone the Crows is the only song I can think of that comes close.
