Custard Pie                     Physical Graffiti

The first track on the landmark double album Physical Graffiti, Custard Pie is an emphatic, boot-to-the-groin statement from Headley Grange that Zep was back to its roots of staggeringly heavy rock.  Taking inspiration from sources all the way back to Blind Boy Fuller's 1939 track "I Want Some of Your Pie", as well as Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee's "Custard Pie Blues" in 1947, there's some additional influence from Bukka White's "Shake 'em On Down" as well as from Big Joe Williams' "Drop Down Mama" evident here, itself drawn from the 1935 Sleepy John Estes track "Drop Down Daddy".  John Paul Jones plays a mean clavinet on this one, and Page's piercing solo is processed through an ARP synthesizer.  Unfortunately never performed live until Page performed it on his Outrider tour, and again later at Jason Bonham's wedding in 1990, "Custard Pie" was actually rehearsed for possible inclusion in the 1975 concerts, but didn't make the cut.
