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

Cover of Led Zeppelin III

From Led Zeppelin III and 208 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.”

    Featuring an incredible solo by Jimmy Page, this blues rock number off Led Zeppelin III also features John Paul Jones on the Hammond organ. Since it allowed room for on-the-spot creativity and experimentation, “Since I’ve Been Loving You” was often played in concert. The band used it not only to show off their musical talents but also to express their appreciation for the blues. -- watchmojo

    Man this guy cannot sing like that! One of my greatest vocal influences is this sir, Robert Plant.
