Knockouts from the past

20 May 2019

Today 50 years ago, on 20 May 1969, rock icons LED ZEPPELIN started recording HEARTBREAKER. A rambling corker of their second album Led Zeppelin II released
in October 1969. It was the opening track of the 2nd side of the LP and features a truly special guitar riff by Jimmy Page described years later by virtuoso producer Rick Rubin
as “one of the greatest riffs in rock. It starts, and it’s like they don’t really know where the “one” is. Magical in its awkwardness.”

7″ vinyl (below) is from an Italian pressing.

Now, let’s rock…
