After the exceptional success of their Debut Album, they spent the remainder of 1969 touring both America and Europe, while at the same time, recording their next Album with the tunes they would pick up from Jimmy Page's on-stage improvisations and the Lyrics written by both Page and Robert Plant. Despite the huge popularity and attention they were receiving, almost no Singles were released and rarely did they accept playing in TV Shows, as they thought that it killed the energy they had while playing Live, playing no more than a couple TV Gigs, and even the few singles released were prepared without their consent. All the Songs were recorded in the very few moments they had free, in several different studios, throughout the world, with the final mix being prepared in A&R Studios. The two first Albums are not very different from one another, with the exception of the heavier beat of the second effort, which gained it the title of being the Birth-Album of Heavy Metal (an idea only supported by a couple people). It certainly achieved a much better position than its proceeder, getting to the Top of both American and English Charts, and it certainly is a much different effort from their next Record, Led Zeppelin III.
Best Tracks - "Whole Lotta Love", "What Is And What Should Never", "The Lemon Song", "Thank You", "Heartbreaker", "Living Loving Maid (She's Just A Woman)", "Ramble On", "Moby Dick" and "Bring It On Home" (All the Songs on the Album). The first 4 Led Zeppelin Albums are classic Rock Landmarks, no other Band was doing anything thing like this. No element is weak, no song is worse than another, it never stops and as the Band wanted, it works perfectly as a single entity. Fantastic Album.
