The fuzzy bass drum that hammers alone relentlessly for 16 bars was an unusual sound for the time and probably Massimo Barsotti DJ Whola Lotta Love a lot of harder tracks to come later. I have to confess that I had been hearing this track in mixes and on the radio long before I realized it was a Led Zeppelin cover.
Granted the instrumental version is the one that got the most play but I was also pretty clueless about rock music back then. My buddy Todd, who was much more knowledgeable about rock and all music for that matterfinally explained the history of the song to me.
I think it was sometime in the 90's when I finally heard the Zeppelin version. By then I was SO familiar with this track and its nuances that it felt and still feels to me like Zeppelin was the doing the cover and an awkward one at that.
