    Arlen Roth, Hot Pickups, 1980, Sonet Germany, INT 147112

    "August Nights" B4. Arlen Roth is able to play everything, but who is the "sheik of swing"?

    Compare John Camp's bass line in Can You Understand from the 1973 Renaissance Album Ashes Are Burning with John Lodge's in Legend of a Mind from The Moody Blues' 1968 album In Search of the Lost Chord .

    Best regards!

    Led Zeppelin, Boogie With Stu, 1975

    From "Physical Graffiti" some more or less legal robbery: "Boogie with Stu" is definitively not a LedZeppelin-IanStewart-Mrs.Valens song as it is credited. It is definitively a Ritchie Valens song and it should definitively be called "Ooh! My Head". The credits to Mrs. Valens come from the nearly incredible sharpness of four gentle villains...

    The most insolent rip off in rock history?

    "Dazed and confused": Original by Jake Holmes 1967 on Tower Records. Led Zeppelin I in 1969: the most insolent rip off in rock history?! Look and hear this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGzrDw_sW2A
    (Admittedly it's a great cover version, isn't it?)

    LZ are well known for their law suits that they've lost in their career.

    Riff Raff, Vinyl Futures, 1981, ATCO USA, SD 32-108

    They also ripped-off the band name "Riff Raff" as many other musicians did. Why do they? Anyway, this is magnificent melodic hard rock with leanings towards Led Zeppelin and Boston. Dog Lubahn lead vocals/bass (bassist of The Doors, Billy Squier, Monkees, Nugent), Werner Fritzsching guitars (Cactus). Listen to Mary Lou A5. Good songs. All winners, no fillers. Sleeve by Hipgnosis. Underrated.
    This here is the original English Riff Raff: http://www.audioheritage.org/vbullet...l=1#post430346
