Mint Minus Minus is about as quiet as any vintage pressing will play, and since only the right vintage pressings have any hope of sounding good on this album, that will most often be the playing condition of the copies we sell. The copies that are even a bit noisier get listed on the site are seriously reduced prices or traded back in to the local record stores we shop at.
Those of you looking for quiet vinyl will have to settle for the sound of other pressings and Heavy Vinyl reissues, purchased elsewhere of course as we have no interest in selling records that don't have the vintage analog magic of these wonderful recordings.
If you want to make the trade-off between bad sound and quiet surfaces with whatever Heavy Vinyl pressing might be available, well, that's certainly your prerogative, but we can't imagine losing what's good about this music -- the size, the energy, the presence, the clarity, the weight -- just to hear it with less background noise.
The album's opening number, "In the Evening," with its stomping rhythms and heavy, staggered riffs, suggests that Zeppelin haven't deviated from their course, but by the time the rolling shuffle of "South Bound Suarez" kicks into gear, it's apparent that they've regained their sense of humor.
After "South Bound Suarez," the group tries a variety of styles, whether it's an overdriven homage to Bakersfield county called "Hot Dog," the layered, Latin-tinged percussion and pianos of "Fool in the Rain," or the slickly seductive ballad "All My Love".

Availability Sold out. Error Quantity must be 1 or more. And yes, guitar may not be everything as someone posted but it is important if your talking about Led Zeppelin. To hear Page's lack of input on the majority of any Zep album is a downer for me If your a great guitar player-you need to put out a statement. But his lack of expression and ideas was due to his addiction.. It's no secret. I'd like to get more feedback on some of the other things I mentioned in the original topic post - like song choices, Plant's lyrics on Carouselambra who are they directed toward or John Bonham's performance also affected by drugs???
Wearing and Tearing was purposely recorded as their answer to punk at the time. To me, that would have been a powerful closer to the album. IMO that would have made for a more solid album, and it's also got a killer guitar riff, which most of the album lacks. I enjoy and appreciate all the comments. Wheather we agree or not, we are all Zeppelin fans. Which would be what? I'm sure all of the members of Zep have been critical about certain aspects of all of their records, not just In Through the Out Door.
Whatever those criticisms may be, it's not going to change my opinion of the albums. I love South Bound Saurez and hate Carouselambra. It huffs and puffs, but goes absolutely nowhere.
Carouselambra is my least favourite Zep song. I don't see that song that way at all, but I really appreciate your contribution to the post. Carouselambra goes far for me.
It huffs and puffs alright, and goes throught three different transitions. It goes places that you wouldn't expect and it's one of the most unpredictable songs they ever wrote. The middle section around is pure classic Zeppelin with a simple but monster riff chords by Page. You cannot deny the power there.. However, my wife can't stop smirking when she hears the synth solo in All My Love. It's a rare segment of a Zep tune being truly dated by technology.
Time might have been kinder to it had, say, a piano solo been played instead. Still a great song though. If that's lightweight then so be it. In a way, it's like a surreptitious sneaky way of getting people to listen to Zep without knowing it's Zep! Anyway, I thought it should be restated that one thing about ITTOD is that, according to the band, it was an experiment, a departure from what went before, and so, had Zep continued, might have been seen as a particular chapter of a longer creative arc.
They were finally back in a good place and were "on the up" as Jonesy has stated. And then it suddenly ended, just as a rebirth was occurring.
A damned shame, I think we'll agree. But such is life. Other threads here have debated this a lot so I won't delve any further along this line. His own style was developing into a more refined and efficient method, moving away from the crazed playing of his youth. A "less is more" kinda thing.
He'd proved his chops long before, in the studio and certainly in concert. Ian Paice of Deep Purple has said that his own style has simplified as he got older, not out of laziness but more as technical refinement.
Creating even more space between beats instead of filling them up with showmanship - which is not necessarily a bad thing, I might add! Bonzo seemed to be heading in this direction, studio-wise. I think Bonzo's drumming throughout ITTOD is a masterclass of restraint and precision perhaps excluding Hot Dog which has a simple rhythm that could be played by almost any drummer.
He does play some tremendously precise beats, Fool in the Rain being a class example. It is not a simple as it sounds, believe me! Some of the rolls and fills on I'm Gonna Crawl are just beautiful. That was Bonzo's magic. Despite his lack of songwriting credits and the stylistic departures with keyboards and guitars, I think it's Bonzo's drumming that really cements the whole album together. Maybe I'm biased as a drummer, but no matter what you think about the whole album or the merits of the individual songs, it again shows how Bonzo's drums really were the foundation of Zep's sound.
I think the other members have implied this enough over the years. I'm not debating the creative songwriting foundation, merely the actual sound and feel of the band. One thing's for sure, Zep's great cruising music! That's how I feel about the album.
It might be a little rough and dated at times, but it was Zeppelin trying new things and probably showed that they were going to be a different band going forward.
Is it Zeppelin at their finest? Not to me, but it has a lot of good to offer. Zeppelin were the best at taking a label someone gave them, and ripping it apart. This album was one of those times. I can say unapologetically that Fool in the Rain is one of very favorite Zep tunes, regardless of the fact that it's not in their normal style or vibe.
Listen to Dazed and Confused, etc. They take a detour to South America with no studio musicians as a guide, could the Stones do that? Could Deep Purple do that? This is really one of the things that separates them from everyone else.
And Jimmy's work is exemplary, not just the solo, but the way his acoustic mirrors Jonesy's bass line or is it the other way around? One of the things that bugs me the most about ITTOD is that the change in direction was supposedly at Plant's insistence. The song exhibits a Latin feel. Drummer John Bonham plays a half-time shuffle beat similar to the "Purdie shuffle" rhythm attributed to session drummer Bernard Purdie, along with a samba-style breakdown.
A master drum track shows that the samba breakdown was recorded separately. Bass player John Paul Jones and vocalist R… read more.

In hindsight what immediately strikes you about … Out Door is the paucity of tracks: just seven, with a total running time of Which, to be fair, was par for the course for a single vinyl album back then.
The album begins well enough with In The Evening , and the atmosphere of a steaming Moroccan souk is accurately evoked — typically Zep or should we say typically Plant. Just as you feel as if the song could go on forever it simply… fades… away…. South Bound Saurez has a honky-tonk feel, and Page, again, dashes off a few notes and leaves the building. Bonham is the same: his familiar steamhammer style is superseded by a sly shuffle. For a moment guitar and keyboards link up to follow the stumbling-but-progressive riff in tandem, and the results are… charming.
Probably not. Hot Dog is just throwaway. Page takes the piss here. His playing is careless and scrappy, and he misses notes without a care in the world.Aug 28, · HAHA), then throw "lambra" and Fool in the Rain into a shredder so that they could never be found and put onto a Zep "lost cuts" album. Darlene is AWESOME and I love Wearing and Tearing. So ditching the two and putting in the other two should do it.
