This song is an outstanding mandolin and acoustic guitar piece by the 1970's British rock band Led Zeppelin. With music written by Jimmy Page and lyrics by Robert Plant, this beautiful and compelling song is from the Led Zeppelin IV album which was released in 1971. The answering backup vocals were done by vocalist Sandy Denny from the folk band Fairport Convention, making the song the only time in their entire career that Led Zeppelin used an outside singer. It is thought that the song refers to the Battle of Pelennor Fields from JRR Tolkien's "Return of the King."
Led Zeppelin were an English rock band originally formed in 1968 by guitarist Jimmy Page under the name "The New Yardbirds", based on Page's previous band, The Yardbirds. The band formed when Jimmy Page (guitar) recruited Robert Plant (vocals, harmonica), John Paul Jones (bass guitar, keyboards, mandolin), and John Bonham (drums). With their heavy, guitar-driven blues-rock sound, Led Zeppelin are regularly cited as one of the progenitors of heavy metal and hard rock music. Show more ...
