January 12th, 1969 was a special day in rock 'n' roll.

It was the day that Led Zeppelin released their first album. I didn't pick it up that day, but when I did and dropped the needle on the vinyl, what a treat. The first song on the album was "Good Times Bad Times," but the song I have here today is "Black Mountain Side."

It's a tune I wondered, "what the heck the first time I heard it." It was so different from the rest of the album.
