Moby Dick                      Led Zeppelin II

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.
