The best-selling live Led Zeppelin DVD and CD releases have
energized The Levee, and we're ready to put on
some fantastic shows. We've learned a lot of great new songs, and
we hope you can
join us soon to hear the results of all the fun we've been having.
Keep an eye on our site as we announce
new developments and additional live appearances in 2003 and into 2004.
Thanks for visiting!
Born at the famous Stargroves sessions in
1972, it was originally a drums and bass workout for Bonham and
Jones. Plant added some lyrics paying homage to the James Brown
funk vibe, throwing in a bunch of references to other artists such as
Wilson Picket and Otis Redding, and one of his most famous ad-libs, in
his best Masterpiece Theatre accent, "Where's that Confounded
Bridge?" Page and engineer George Chkianz can be heard asking
Bonzo if he's "ready to rock" at the beginning of the studio
track. A dance step diagram to this number was considered for
inclusion on the cover of the record, and in retrospect, it's a good
thing it never happened. Though never performed by itself,
"The Crunge" first appeared inside "Dazed and
Confused" in 1972 and 1973, and then later as part of "Whole
Lotta Love" at Los Angeles and Earl's Court in 1975. We like
to use it as an excuse for Will to break out the theremin, while Brian
and Dennis pound away, improvising on the infectious groove.
