E40: Led Zeppelin - Ranking The 1975 Versions Of "No Quarter"
Show Notes

In this episode I rank every 1975 version of "No Quarter" -- all 38 for which there is at least a partial recording, that is.  I've been looking forward to -- and preparing for -- this episode for several months and am excited to finally unveil it!  This week marks the 46th anniversary of the conclusion of Led Zeppelin's 1975 North American Tour, which I covered in full, along with the Earls Court shows, way back in Episode 3 last June.  I figured that the anniversary of the end of the North American tour would be the perfect time to release this, as that final week of the tour in Los Angeles marks the very peak of their popularity and influence in many ways.  It was that week that their entire back catalogue joined 'Physical Graffiti' (#1) in the charts, a then-unprecedented feat.
