Some Rock n Roll History

Recommended Posts

This is a long-forgotten blues guy named PJ Proby. What makes the recording historical isn't PJP, but rather the backing band, who went on to form a pretty successful combo. They are John Paul Jones, John Bonham, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant (harmonica). I was unable to find out who played piano, could have been JPJ. It was the first time all four had been together in the studio.

At first I wondered if this might contradict  the popular story wherein Plant was found via an ad in Melody Maker, and that he'd had no prior professional experience. But the 1968 session date suggests that the band was already in formation, given that the first LZ record came out in the summer of 1969, IIRC.
