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!

The Rain Song               Houses of the Holy

Legend has it that this song was composed in response to a conversation that John Bonham had with George Harrison, who was a big fan of Led Zeppelin.  Harrison's only negative comment was that Bonham's band never wrote any ballads.  One of Robert Plant's more sensitive lyrics, this is another fine example of the "light and shade" approach that provides so much texture across the Zeppelin catalog.  An early application of the Mellotron provided the synthesized string sounds on stage, and some dramatic work by Bonham is often the highlight of the live versions.  Page worked out the melody in his Plumpton studio, and an early outtake exists of Page playing just the melody on an acoustic guitar.  In the studio Page played a Danelectro guitar, but on stage he wielded his famous doubleneck to perform this one, usually after "The Song Remains the Same", as on the album.  "The Rain Song" was first performed on the Japan tour of 1972, and was performed steadily until the end of the 1975 tours.  It reappeared again in 1979 and was performed until the end of Led Zeppelin's performing career.
