For this week's episode, we climb aboard the rock-and-roll mothership that is Led Zeppelin and their mysteriously untitled fourth album. What more could possibly be said about this ubiquitous classic-rock staple? This week's guest Ralph Cavallaro describes how the record/band went from seminal hard rock touchstone in his youth to bloated, uncool anachronism in his college years to one of his all-time favorites today. Along the way we dig into the sonic artistry and groundbreaking recording techniques that make this a stone cold classic.
