Led Zep-a-thon

My Led Zeppelin albums in MusicBee

I’ve always been more into albums than singles; I like to listen to complete collections of music than a more radio-like random playlist. And even better if I can listen to the whole body of an artist’s work, to hear how they have developed over the years.

This week, inspired by waking up to a Led Zeppelin song on the radio, I’ve had a Led Zep-a-thon.

While working at the University of St Andrews, on long coding projects, I would often have artist-a-thons—listening to the complete back-catalogue of an artist before moving on to the next.

During this COVID-19 lock down, I decided to reinstate the discipline.

Day 1

  • Led Zeppelin I (1969)
  • Led Zeppelin II (1969)
  • Led Zeppelin III (1970)
  • Led Zeppelin IV (1971)
  • Houses of the Holy (1973)
  • Physical Graffiti (1975)
  • Presence (1976)

Day 2

  • In Through the Out Door (1979)
  • Coda (1982)
  • BBC Sessions (1997)

The question is… what next? Maybe I’ll do an A to Z of artists, one artist per letter starting with, hmm… Manchester prog rock outfit Amplifier.
