New Music Monday

This weeks New Music Monday is a great one, at least I think so. What do you think?? What kind of memories does this song bring to you? Led Zeppelin is one of my all time favorite bands, always has been, always will be. I'm sure I don't have to go into much detail about who Led Zeppelin is but here are some tidbits about this great song...

Some interesting information about this song: (from Wikipedia)
The unique sound of the intro to the song was created by Jimmy Page using a violin bow on an acoustic guitar. This was one of three Led Zeppelin songs on which Page used bowed guitar, the others being "Dazed and Confused" and "How Many More Times" (although for both of these he used a bow to play an electric guitar). The song "In the Evening" utilized several tremelo bar drops to mimic the bow sound.

"In the Light" was never played live at Led Zeppelin concerts. According to Jones, Robert Plant was emphatic about wanting to play the song onstage, but because Jones could not reproduce the synthesizer sound properly outside of the studio, he vetoed the idea.

In the Light
was released on the album Physical Graffiti on February 24,1975 which was a double album and was the first album released on the bands own label Swan Song Records. Physical Graffiti was one of the most popular selling albums in the bands history with over 16 million sold.

My favorite lines from the song....

And if you feel that you cant go on. and your wills sinkin low
Just believe and you cant go wrong.
In the light you will find the road. you will find the road.

Enjoy....see you next week with a new song!
