The Rover (5:37)

Cover of Physical Graffiti

From Physical Graffiti and 22 other releases

The song was originally meant to be an acoustic piece, being written at Bron-Yr-Aur in 1970 and then recorded at Stargroves during the Houses of the Holy sessions in 1972. However, the band decided to hold the track off the Houses of the Holy album, and the song eventually saw its way onto Led Zeppelin’s next studio album Physical Graffiti. By this time it had obtained a distinctly heavier feel, with several studio overdubs having been laid down by Jimmy Page in 1974.
