Led Zeppelin – Reshuffled


I decided to do a few posts about music… specifically, Led Zeppelin.

Why?

Because they are the greatest. Full stop. No arguments allowed. 😛

So anyways, two of these posts (this one and the next one) will be highlighting my own little projects I did with Zeppelin’s music. Sorry, but there won’t be links to downloads, as these involve official music and I cannot distribute that without permission (legally… anyways).

I did want to provide the information for Zepheads who might be interested.

So this first one is called “Led Zeppelin Reshuffled”. What I did was take Physical Graffiti and Coda and reshuffled the songs into the albums they were originally recorded for. I worked very hard to preserve the flow (something Zeppelin was very good at with their albums), and two albums (1 and Presence) remain entirely unchanged. 1 stayed the same because the only song I could have moved in to it was “Baby Come on Home” (a tribute to Bert Berns), and I couldn’t put that anywhere without interrupting the flow, so I chose not to. Presence remains the same because there was nothing extra from it. What you hear on Presence is what they recorded, and that’s it.

So, without further ado, this is “Led Zeppelin Reshuffled”:

Coda (November 19, 1982):

I’m breaking here because Coda becomes different. With the reshuffling, there is no Coda left, just “We’re Gonna Groove” and “I Can’t Quit You Baby”, which are taken from the 1970 Royal Albert Hall and edited to sound like studio tracks (for some strange reason), and “Baby Come On Home”. Three songs may make a single, but they don’t make an album.

I have two different versions. One is what I burned to CD:

01. Jim’s Blues (PJ Proby with Led Zeppelin)
02. We’re Gonna Groove (January 09, 1970 Royal Albert Hall) [studio edits]
03. I Can’t Quit You Baby (January 09, 1970 Royal Albert Hall) [studio edits]
04. Baby Come on Home (October 10, 1968 Olympic Studios)
05. Traveling Riverside Blues (June 24, 1969 BBC John Peel’s Top Gear)
06. White Summer/Black Mountain Side (June 27, 1969 BBC One Night Stand)
07. Alexis Korner Intro (03-19-69 Korner’s Rhythm and Blues)
08. What is and What Should Never Be (03-19-69 Korner’s Rhythm and Blues)
09. More Chat (03-19-69 Korner’s Rhythm and Blues)
10. I Can’t Quit You Baby (03-19-69 Korner’s Rhythm and Blues)
11. More Chat (03-19-69 Korner’s Rhythm and Blues)
12. You Shook Me (03-19-69 Korner’s Rhythm and Blues)
13. Sunshine Woman (03-19-69 Korner’s Rhythm and Blues)
14. Julie Felix Introduction (04-23-70 Julie Felix Show)
15. White Summer – Black Mountain Side (04-23-70 Julie Felix Show)

I have a different tracklisting for what’s on my iPod:

01. She Just Satisfies (Jimmy Page pre-Zeppelin solo)
02. Keep Moving (Jimmy Page pre-Zeppelin solo)
03. Happenings Ten Years Time Ago (The Yardbirds with Jimmy Page)
04. Long Time Coming (Robert Plant pre-Zeppelin)
05. Think About (The Yardbirds with Jimmy Page)
06. I’m Confused (The Yardbirds with Jimmy Page)
07. Baby Come on Home (October 10, 1968 Olympic Studios)
08. Jim’s Blues (PJ Proby with Led Zeppelin)
09. Babe I’m Gonna Leave You (Live)
10. I Can’t Quit You Baby (January 09, 1970 Royal Albert Hall) [studio edits]
11. We’re Gonna Groove (January 09, 1970 Royal Albert Hall) [studio edits]
12. Bring it On Home (September 4, 1970 The Forum, Inglewood, California)
13. Bron-Yr-Aur (September 4, 1970 The Forum, Inglewood, California)
14. Four Sticks (May 3, 1971 K.B. Copenhagen)
15. A Mess of the Blues (August 23, 1971 Convention Center Arena, Ft. Worth, Texas)
16. Gallows Pole (November 16, 1971 St. Matthew’s Baths, Ipswich)
17. Black Country Woman (June 19, 1972 Seattle Center Coliseum, Seattle, Washington)

And I do add and remove tracks occasionally on the iPod Coda… case in point: I’ll be adding the Whole Lotta Love medley from the April 1, 1970 BBC Sessions Live show eventually, as track 12 (these are in year/date order).

If you have all of Led Zeppelin’s albums, you can do this yourself, so have fun if you want. It’s worth it, IMO… and a lot of fun.

I am, BTW, very happy to send you my recordings of “Jennings Farm Blues” and “Swan Song” since these are unreleased, unofficial tracks (for now). Let me know. For the record, “Swan Song” is a mix of two takes, though for the life of me I can’t remember which two. No, it doesn’t sound all that much like “Midnight Moonlight“, the Firm song that “Swan Song” eventually developed in to. “Midnight Moonlight” is… okay… but I like these particular takes of “Swan Song”, and so did it that way, making “Swan Song” a distinct, mellow, neat acoustic instrumental song.

If you want “Jennings Farm Blues” and “Swan Song”, just message me privately.

I will have to stop offering them if asked, but while they are unofficial, they’re safe… until I’m told otherwise by any of the surviving members of Led Zeppelin or their attorneys… or they are officially released…
