Default 40th Anniversary of Physical Graffiti - How Cool Is This?

Check this out:

Quote:
Today marks the fortieth anniversary of Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti, a phenomenal double album that included, among other songs "Houses Of The Holy," "In The Light" and, of course, the monumental "Kashmir." Tomorrow we'll have an interview up with Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, who tells us all about how the album came together. But in the meantime, we can't think of a better way to mark the milestone than with this genuinely incredible performance of "Kashmir," along with a medley of "The Ocean" and "Immigrant Song," by the Louisville Leopard Percussionists, a group of about 60 seven to 12-year-olds from several different schools in Kentucky. The group, which must have the coolest band director on the planet, originally recorded the performance last fall, but Page himself recently posted it to his personal Facebook page, saying it's "too good not to share!" We agree.

Sure thing Derek. Man, I would have LOVED it if my music teachers had us covering Zeppelin tunes when I was a kid!

When I was a kid most (if not all) of my music teachers would scowl and ask me, "Why are you wasting your time listening to that" ...Bla bla bla

Awesome! But I bet there was at least one kid in there thinking, "why are we playing this grandpa music?"

I've bought this album three times now, as the LP when it came out, the. As a cassette when I wanted to be mobile, then as CD about 20 years ago. I listen to it all the time still!

When viewing from the main page, all I could see was "40th Anniversary of Physical" and I thought, really? Someone made a thread about the Olivia Newton John song? lol

Whew....so relieved when I read the whole title.

haha.

I always did love Kasmir.

It's very cool, but as a chronological reminder of my timeline on this rock - not so much :(

I like this a lot. What I like about it as much as anything is the honesty of the capture. It's 'just' a camera mic, a camera and a bunch of kids playing some great music in an interesting and skilled way. Count me as impressed.

Loved that!

Loved the big grins on the kids' faces at the end too.

Has it been 40 years? Where did they go. I bought the album as soon as it was released. Read about it in Circus magazine too. Still love "Down by the Seaside."

My first thought when I saw the title was "Damn, I'm getting old."

The local news (I work in Louisville) had a piece on that some time back. Nice to see them getting some recognition.

That summer I was on holiday with a friend in Newquay, Cornwall. We met a group of lads who were on holiday from London and were staying in a caravan. They had brought some LPs with them, one of them (Oliver) had brought Physical Graffiti. When it got to "that bit" in Kashmir he said "Listen to this! Listen to this! Doesn't that send a shiver down your spine?". It did, (still does actually). THAT was the moment when I decided I wanted to play the drums.

When they left for home, Oliver gave me the LP - he had it on tape anyway, he said.

I still have it. The cover is in tatters now. I bought the CD of course when it came out.

Sorry to be a bore, but that's one of my favourite memories. What a guy!

No a bore at all, that's a great story. That "shiver down your spine" you mentioned, isn't that one of the coolest things about being a human being interacting with music? It's freaking magic. I hope the kids in the video are all getting a taste of that as well.

I guess it's cool if you haven't heard the album 10,000 times already.

I was 20 when it came out and I loved all their earlier albums-just fantastic. But when Physical Graffiti came out I was disappointed to be honest. But there was lots of other music competing too. Wish you were there Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan Blood on the tracks, Born to Run Springsteen, Queen A night at the opera, Aerosmith Toys in the Attic, Patti Smith Horses, etc. I forgot Neil Young too-it was his fifth or six album-???

As a teenager in the 70's, one of the "party circuit" bands that I was in used to play "The Rover" a lot. We loved that song.

The re-mastered version sounds incredible 40 years on.

I've just bought it for the umpteenth time: vinyl, cassette, cd, box set, etc...

For us drummers, listen to the pre-digital, true rock'n'roll' ferocity of, for example, In My Time Of Dying, when Bonham pounds the drums into submission.

A rock masterpiece.
