Lyrics excerpt - "Way down inside, honey, you need it... I'm gonna give you my love... I'm gonna give you every inch of my love....."

There can be no denying that with the release of this 2nd album in 1969, Led Zeppelin had definitely hit the ultimate "rock-n-roll' jackpot.

In record time, #2 reached gold status in sales and promptly knocked The Beatles' Abbey Road album from its lofty #1 position on the charts on both sides of the Atlantic.

Showcasing the band's ever-evolving musical style, Led Zeppelin II contains elements of blues and folk fused with some of the finest examples of heavy metal that you're ever gonna hear.

It's no wonder that (45 years later) critics still unanimously agree that this impressive 2nd album from Led Zeppelin was one of the most influential rock lps of its era. Its hard-driving edge has been an inspiration to a host of other bands, such as - Whitesnake, Aerosmith, and Iron Maiden.

This CD contains all nine original tracks. Three of my all-time favorites are - Heartbreaker, Ramble On, and, of course, Whole Lotta Love.

"You need coolin', baby, I'm ain't foolin'.... I'm gonna send you back to schoolin'...."
