Led Zeppelin – IV

When we were in high school me and my brother would go op shopping. Never much to find in the vinyl unless you’re into Glenn Campbell or Christmas compilations. One day though we spotted this Led Zeppelin record. Absolute classic; Black Dog, Rock and Roll, Stairway… anyway, my brother snagged it. I don’t think I even knew Zeppelin at the time, but as I grew up I always eyed it. Big bro eventually packed his stuff for his gap year, but I knew where the good stuff was. When I packed up to move out I took my opportunity and snagged it. I had already accumulated a dozen or so ‘ok’ records, but getting that stalwart in the collection really got me going properly, and I still claim it as my first, even if my brother ‘looked after’ it for the first few years.
