Since I’ve Been Loving You is a Blues Rock song written by John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page, and Robert Plant. It’s the 4th track on side one of Led Zeppelin III (released October 5, 1970).
During a May 1993 interview with Brad Tolinski of Guitar World Jimmy Page said Since I’ve Been Loving You was the “hardest to record”.
“GW: Had you reached a dead end with the blues-based material found on the first two albums?”
“Page: No. We always had some blues on our albums. Playing the blues is actually the most challenging thing you can do. It is very hard to play something original. “Since I’ve Been Loving You” is a prime example. That was the only song on the third album that we had played live prior to our sessions, yet it was the hardest to record. We had several tries at that one. The final version is a live take with John Paul Jones playing organ and foot bass pedals at the same time.”
