    I was under the impression that actual music-making in the 80's was suspended due to an apparent lack originality.

    Nope, that was the 2000's. Lots of music needed in the 80's to score all those videos.

    In the mid-90's, it was suspended due to angst.

    Theres a classic country show on npr. They do the top ten of that day from some earlier year . If its from the early 50 s the production is astounding. Full and rich. Just a mike and a room.

    Man, I could not disagree more; it's a spectacular track, and the production suits it to a tee. It's as of-its-time as all the best Zep stuff was, and there's nothing wrong with that in my book.

    I just threw up a little in my mouth thinking of all the grunge acts I had to endure in the 90's...and their attitudes. We passed upwards of 25-30 acts across the stage each week, which equates to upwards of 120 egos & attitudes. It was loud. I still remember these guys come in and handed me an input list that read like my shop: SM57 on anvil, grinder, & saw... I ask wtf are you guys doing, and they replied "industrial".

    ...and I always thought he titled it Big Log because subconsciously, he knew it was such a huge piece of $h*t. :twisted:
