Led Zeppelin III – from Definitive Collection Box Set (Mini LP Replica; Box set, Limited Edition, Original recording remastered)

Led Zeppelin III was the band’s third studio album and was recorded between January and July 1970 and released on 5 October 1970.  Interesting trivia – the album  by was composed largely at a remote cottage in Wales known as Bron-Yr-Aur and the music flavor leans to folk and acoustic sounds.  This remote setting had no running water or electric power, which encouraged a slight change of musical direction for the band towards an emphasis on acoustic arrangements.

Although this recording was never a best seller from the Zeppelin catalog, it is widely acknowledged for proving that Led Zep was more than just a conventional rock band with diversity to branch out into wider musical horizons!

Ironically my favorite track on this album (as in Led Zep II), #7 “Tangerine”.
