Leading off Led Zeppelin III,
"Immigrant Song" was inspired by the
band's June 1970 trip to Iceland, which led Robert Plant to conjure
lyrics calling forth images of marauding Vikings from distant lands
engaging in desperate, pitched battles. The instrumental basis of
the song as well as the trademark Robert Plant wail that marks its
beginning can be heard on the Headley Grange studio rehearsal tapes from
May - June 1970. One of the few Led Zeppelin songs released as a
single, "Immigrant Song" ascended to #16 on the Billboard
charts and was backed with one of the most popular non-album B-sides in
rock radio history; "Hey Hey What Can I Do" was otherwise
unavailable before the release of the first Led Zeppelin box set in
1990. "Immigrant Song" was first played at the legendary Bath Festival
concert of June 28, 1970 and at every subsequent concert from then until
the end of the 1972 American tour. Appearing only a couple of
times as an encore on the European tour of 1972 - 1973, it was absent
until the 1995 Page and Plant concerts, which began with a few bars of
this very memorable Led Zeppelin classic. The Levee plays
"Immigrant Song" as it was played in concert, up-tempo and
with an extended solo in the middle.
