Various Artists - The Roots of Led Zeppelin CD

The Roots of Led Zeppelin is a collection of 16 songs that inspired the greatest rock band of all time! This album features works by Little Richard, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Memphis Minnie, Lightnin' Hopkins, Otis Rush & more!

One of the most successful groups of all time, Led Zeppelin has often been taken to task for using the work of other artists without citing the source, particularly blues artists. But critics have also drawn attention to Zep's use of the work of folk and rock artists as well. If you're a Zeppelin fan, you can broaden your own horizons by listening to Zep's influences in other genres. If you're a detractor, then you can take pride in listening to the "true" originals (but bear in mind that they had their influences as well)!
