An odd piece of Led Zeppelin II in 1969
and The Song Remains the Same in 1976, "Moby Dick" was an
opportunity to showcase the percussion skills of John Bonham, Led
Zeppelin's one-of-a-kind drummer. Those who have heard Led
Zeppelin' BBC recordings will recognize its genesis in "The Girl I
Love (She Got Long Black Wavy Hair)". For The Levee,
the track serves as a spotlight for our own Brian Leden, who plays an
extended solo full of unpredictable rhythm figures and intricate time
signatures. The drum solo, and "Moby Dick" in
particular, dates from the very beginning of Led Zeppelin's career, when
it began in late 1968 as an interlude called "Pat's Delight"
(named after Bonham's wife). It was played all through 1969 and
1970, but was not performed at a few concerts in 1971 and almost
disappeared until the 1973 American tour. By that point,
performances could go on for up to 30 minutes at a time. After the
1975 and 1977 American tours, which included more marathon solos
distorted by bizarre "space age" sound effects, "Moby
Dick" was retired.
