The best music in the world is subjective. It depends on where you live, when you were born, and the music you grew up with.
When Led Zeppelin first broached the music scene I passed them by. Their song, “Whole Lotta Love” left me cold. But I didn’t like onions and garlic as a child, either. Things changed. Led Zep became a favorite band.
Imagine my surprise when two lovely woman came to the fore and, lo and behold, became—in my eyes, at least—a female Led Zeppelin. If you know the discography of Heart you’ll know at least two of their cuts sound very like Led Zep, Barracuda and Crazy On You.
Today I’m doing something a little different. I’m giving you two versions of the same song, the original studio cut, and a later live cut.
The studio version has the best sound, it still makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up, it still gives me a chill.
But the second version… in the second version you see the faces, see the instruments, the movement, the color… and you hear the audience. I trust you’ll listen to them both, they are worth your time.
Turn it up.
