On LZ4 everybody flipped for "Stairway to Heaven," and all the other FM 
radio "hits, "but I was blown away by the song right before it, "The 
Battle of Evermore." It was  just an acoustic guitar, a mandolin, and 
the blood-curdling duet of Plant and Sandy Denny. I was so amazed by 
Denny that I tracked her down to her orginal band, Fairport Convention. 
Their "Liege and Lief" album is fabulous. On LZ4 they made various 
references to Celtic and Germanic paganism, and "...Evermore" is has 
references to Tolkien. Their "roots" efforts seemed to most people to be 
too silly and probably cooked up in a drug fog. Later the 
tongue-in-cheek film "This is Spinal Tap" parodied this with their own 
hopping dwarves.
