The Yardbirds - Live in Portland, Oregon, August 2012
Review by Larry Toering

I have to hand it to the Yardbirds for doing what they do, because it takes a lot of guts to put on such an authentic showing with only one remaining original member in the band.

Review by Larry Toering

When Keith Relf essentially put this band together he was obviously looking way beyond the blues to do something that was actually different.

Led Zeppelin - Houses of the Holy
Review by Gary Hill
For those who think Zeppelin was always nothing but bluesy hard rock, this flies in the fact of that. Much of this disc really fits into a progressive rock category.

Review by Gary Hill
This is widely considered one of Zeppelin’s best discs.

Led Zeppelin - In Through the Out Door

Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin
Review by Gary Hill
It’s hard to believe that it’s been forty years since this album was released. It’s still a classic and probably always will be.
More...
Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin III
Review by Gary Hill
This album was certainly a shock to Zeppelin fans when it came out. Accustomed to the bluesy hard rock of the first couple albums, much of this had to have seemed like a different band.

Review by Gary Hill

Shoot - On the Frontier (colored vinyl)

Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti
Review by Gary Hill
When Led Zeppelin went in to record their fifth album they didn’t plan to do a double disc set. It just sort of turned out that way.
More...
Led Zeppelin - Presence
Review by Gary Hill
Often overlooked, this is actually one of my favorite Zeppelin albums.
More...
Jeff Beck - Rock n Roll Party Honoring Les Paul DVD
Review by Gary Hill

Page and Plant - Walking into Clarksdale
Review by Gary Hill
This second album from Led Zeppelin partners Jimmy Page and Robert Plant holds onto elements of their first reunion album (No Quarter), but in many ways really feels like the return of Led Zeppelin.
More...
Jeff Beck - Who Else
Review by Larry Toering

An attempt to lean heavily sideways into elecronica was the effort, and it worked with great results as Jeff Beck made what seemed to be all the right moves on Who Else.
